You are right, right now your house has no value:
The Value will be determined when the Bank re-sells the house.
The DIFFERENCE between that Sales Price, and your LOAN AMOUNT will determine the DEFICIENCY.
Also, your clock will not start until the Escrow Closes this next sale.
I have that on good authority that the Banks will use the re-sale date for your 3 years of penance.

Now, the good news;
California is a Non-Recourse State:
There are some restrictions, but you be Okay with regards to a Deficiency Judgement. Those exceptions could get you; so I suggest you read up on California Deficiency Judgements.

At least the IRS is considerate about the whole thing: Look at the Debt Forgiveness Act of 2009.

Good luck and may God bless

Faschrz,

My strong suggestion would be to look at non-leased land condos. Rents in mobile home parks are really high and only destined to go higher. Also, a mobile home depreciates whereas a condo will appreciate (in the long run). The savings on the price of most leased land condos are, quite often, more than lost in the monthly land lease payments. Not to mention the fact that lenders really frown on leased land AND mobile homes.

At 25K per year, you're going to be hard pressed to afford to buy much of anything in Huntington Beach. There are, currently, nine condos at or under $200,000. Only two of these are not on leased land and are both 1 bedroom, 1 bath units of 593 and 650 square feet. Also, both are in a 55 and over community so, if you aren't 55 or over, you can't live there anyway.

Of the 7 on leased land, one (on Delaware) doesn't show the lease cost but is listed at $54,900 and is a 55+ community. Two show leases of $2,520 and are in the Huntington Harbor area. They are listed at $144,900 and $150,000. Lastly, the other four show leases of from $7,403 to $7,880 and are listed from $95,000 to $174,900.

Give me a call (714-552-2335 or email Tim@TimKunze.com) and we can crunch some numbers. It would also behoove you to get together with a lender - I can recommend several - and find out just what you can afford. If you can find an FHA approved condo, you can get in with as little as 3% down.

A lot of the rentals in downtown are not posted online. Many of the owners put signs directly on the property and can only be seen by drive by traffic simply because it works for them. I highly recommend spending a Saturday driving through the area if you can. ... more

I know rentals can be really tough to find online right now. Try driving through the neighborhoods you like this weekend and you'll see 'for rent' signs posted by the owners. It'll help.

Best of luck...

Dear Robin,

I searched the MLS and there is nothing available in your price range at the moment. Try craigslist but be aware of scams. Good luck.
Please feel free to contact me with any other questions you might have.

Hi Smartfox,

Commuting from HB to El Segundo is much shorter than commuting from Lagunal Niguel to El Segundo.

The commute is almost an hour one way if it the traffic is light. HB to El Segundo clocks at about 40 miles. Seal Beach is another coastal community in Orange County. It's closer to El Segundo and you might be able to shave off 15 to 20 minutes off the commute. Redondo Beach is a nice coastal communty close to El Segundo if you want to consider living in L.A. County. You may already have considered all this, but just in case I thought I should bring to your attention for consideration.

With that said, there are 22 detached SFR (Single Family Residences) in Huntington Beach priced at $550,000 or under-- a few are quite nice in fact. Please feel free to email or call me if you would like me to send you information on the listings or have any additional questions.

Best of luck,
