If your looking in a beach community, the prices are going to be higher than some place further inland. Huntington Harbor area would for sure be higher end real estate.

Have call into Park Manager to find out what the park rent is for you. But no one was in so I left a message. I also called the agent since the park rent was not noted in the listing in our MLS.

As soon as I hear back I will provide that answer for you.

Rental prices in Huntington Beach have been fairly stable over the last year. However, I do expect that the rental demand for older apartment buildings to drop significantly by the end of summer, as a large number of currently under-construction luxury apartments are completed. ... more

Hi, Conor

How many months and any pets? I have a few places in mind and need these details first to make sure they will work. How close do you want to be by the water?

First step.... Talk to a lender!
Can't buy a home if you don't have the money.
You will probably get several references today from your question.
My preferred lender is Jon Shrum and can be reached on his cell at 714-614-3707
He can help you get pre qualified for a loan and get you on your way to buying a home.

Andres Morales answered:
I would describe Huntington Beach as a Sellers market because the median sales price in February of 2012 was $279,000 compare to the medium sale price of February 2013 which was $415,000. an increase of around 48.7%. Days on the market have also decreased compare to the previous year from 146 to about 81. That said the desirability of this coastal gem has been increase by the uptick in buyer demand and boomerang buyers. If you have any additional questions please feel free to contact me, my answers are free.

It is possible to buy a home in these areas without having all cash.

You should get pre-approved for financing or talk to a lender now about your income & assets to see if you could qualify in the $400K price range. I would suggest selling your home & trying to get a 90 day rent back period so you can go & buy the next house WITHOUT having to make an offer Contingent upon selling your Ontario home.

Please shoot me an email directly, I can check on your area sales, supply & demand, maybe you can get more than $290K today. I don't look back on this same Trulia posting for answers after mine.

As long as you're not adding another housing unit and you do any renovations according to your city's building codes, you should have no problem.

That is a tall order. Finding a home under $300,000 with seller financing is tough enough in those areas. Your range is quite large and it'll be hard to find one which also happens to appeal to you. Can you give some specifics about what you're looking for? ... more

Shannon Jones answered:
A listing agent is obligated to present all offers to the seller -- even after an offer has been accepted. If there are no other backup offers, you may want to ask your agent to see if the seller will accept your offer as the official backup offer. That way, if the first offer falls through, the seller would move to your offer rather than putting the property back on the market. Some agents will just keep backup offers on file and then notify those buyers if the first buyer backs out. Regardless of which way that goes, you are certainly free to look at other homes in the meantime. And if you find a home, make an offer and have it accepted, your agent would then notify the listing agent of the first home that you are no longer interested.

Ideally, these are questions your Realtor should be able to answer for you. If you don't have a Realtor and need assistance, I'm happy to answer any additional questions.

Warm regards,

Shannon Jones

The funds should be going into a trust account. If however, the agent is the owner of the rental property, then paying to his or her personal account would be acceptable.

Legal advice is outside the scope of a real estate agent. The attached link provides a lot of information, including possible 3rd party sources that could assist you if your rental property is in fact in CA.

Good Luck.

Dan Tabit answered:
If they own the home and you are possessing it, you are technically a tenant and they are the landlord. You should look up the landlord tenant act in California to understand your rights and theirs. Typically, they should give you some notice before expecting to come in, but they are also allowing you to stay 30 days rent free I assume. Working with them may be to your advantage, but learn your rights asap. I'm sorry you lost the house. ... more
