Are you working with an agent? If so ask them what happened. Sometimes (1/3 of transactions) fall out of escrow.

If you aren't working with an agent you can contact me with the addresss and I'll find out if its still availiable.

First and foremost; Thanks for Serving!

Your first stop would be a Veteran's Affairs Office:
You need to apply for your ELIGIBILTY,
and they will have information about it.
Understand that the Gov has thrown us a curve: they gave us a FUNDING FEE, which is about 2.3%.
This FEE can be folded into the loan, which dramatically increases the effective Interest Rate, or you can pay it at the onset, (this whole thing really frosts my !@#$%!)
But you will have a NO DOWN loan which is relatively easy to qualify for, and has other benefits (read up)
For the Loan, you might look at the Navy Federal Credit Union, (trust me)

Good luck and may God bless

Like any neighborhood and city, houses come in many shapes, sizes, and conditions. If you would like me to be your Realtor, I would be happy to help you find a house that matches what you are looking for.

I am currently working with multiple investors who buy houses and remodel them so that I can re-sell them. If you are interested in purchasing a home in the High Desert area, give me a call so we can discuss what you are looking for. We just acquired some new properties, so if we have something that will work for you, you can pick your colors!

Ms. Solis,
As former building inspector for Hesperia, the short answer is, "Yes you can." and the longer answer is:

1. You will need to obtain a building permit.
2. Your MH may not be too old (I think 1988 is the oldest unit the city allows, but check with the city--THIS SHOULD BE THE FIRST THING YOU DO BEFORE PURCHASING A MH)
3.You will still have to pay park and school fees based on the square footage of your home.
4. You will need a septic system or IF within 200' of sewer, hook up to sewer.
5. Install a water meter.
6. You need the pier plans for any MH you buy and I believe they must be good for CA seismic conditions

So, these things may cost you an additional $20-30K in addition to your MH, but check with the city to verify, in case they have had any fee reductions or more details that could help you bring a MH in.

I once had to issue a 30 day notice to remove a MH to a family that had one delivered to their property, and the city wouldn't have allowed it, and they didn't check,so they they had the issue of needing to spend $5K to have it towed.

My advice to anyone, is check with building and safety BEFORE you do any sort of development on your property as part of your due diligence.

Hi Rsroxane49,

Have you removed all your contingencies (in writing)? Have your Realtor check the purchase contract (and any counteroffers, addendums, etc.).

Hesperia seems to be a very popular neighborhood for rentals. I receive phones calls regularly for rentals in this area. I manage a couple of them out there and I rented them quickly.

I own an investment property in the Brentwood community of Victorville and I've never had a problem finding quality tenants.

That being said - it depends. You need to do some local community research and look at the projected growth of both areas. My property yields positive cash flow and was built in 2006 - it is still practically new and hasn't requried any expensive repairs.

I think any real estate market is tied to employment and income growth. Do some homework, if you'd like, I'll help you. I subscribe to many market resources that will help you make your decision. It pretty much depends on your price range and what's on the market. I have some investors that just picked up some great properties from the auction in Victorville and they got an amazing deal. They're going to put it right back on the market without any repairs for a fast profit.

Another quick note: There have been lots of reports indicating that Victorville plans to develop a major logistics and transportation hub. If this happens, you might anticipate a moderate economic boom in the area. Jobs, Industry, etc...

Good luck and let me know if I can be of any help.

I sell Fannie Mae Properties and know the Asset Manager and this is not likely being inplemented by Fannie Mae. Maybe the Selling Agent of Listing Agent is telling you to waive contigencies in order to get your offer accepted. My guess is they have a stronger offer, and the only way the bank will take your offer is if you waive your inspections to make your offer more appealing. ... more
