Hi Patricia,
Why don't you call the listing agent who's number is on the Trulia listing page to find out the amount of HOA dues as he can also provide any other information about the property.
His number is: (760) 578-1503.

Good luck to you!

You need to meet with a reputable lender in your community to see what's available to you. Only by going through the process will you know what your options are.

Best of luck.

Hi Lennart,
This would be a good time to buy just in time for Back to school. So don't wait much longer or the rental could take much longer to find!

Either they are still in Foreclosure and you are looking at a Shortsale, or
You are looking at Squatters or the Old Homeowners who are still living there.

If the House is Listed on the Local MLS, then there will be a Realtor that you can talk to about it.
If the house is not Listed, then you should probably walk away; it wll be a problem; don't make it YOUR problem.

Good luck and may God bless

Linda Mayer answered:
Most people don't feel comfortable over the internet as there is no personal relationship that has been built and therefore the buyer, such as yourself, can get listings and come to town on a day when the agent is busy. So let's say I'm busy so you walk into someone else's office and say show me these properties. Wow, I've just wasted a lot of time and energy and another agent is going to get the paycheck for all of my work.

However, I have no issues working with those out of the area, and in fact have been referred a few people from out of state. As long as the communication is open and I am aware when you will be coming in to look at properties I can make the time to take care of your home needs while you are in town.

I actually have a national network of trusted agents I work with. If you need a referral for someone you can trust give me a call. And, obviously, if you are in my area, give me a call!

Ron Thomas answered:
Not really, and it wouldn't do any good anyway:

The Asset Manager will not disclose any information that you are not a registered party to;
You are not on the Loan, you are not the homeowner; they will not talk to you

It is very hard for a Realtor to get on the approved list, an outsider doesn't stand a chance.

Why aren't you talking to your Buyer's Agent; or are you just not believing them?

It can take months, (literally) to get an answer; didn't your Agent tell you that you have to be patient. Not being patient won't help at all.

Kathy Schowe answered:
There are many rumors circulating regarding the status of various clubs in La Quinta. I can speak for La Quinta Country Club-- they are not filing bankruptcy-- they are renegotiating their loan for the new clubhouse and are making positive strides to become debt-free.
For information on specific clubs I recommend contacting them directly. You should find out the financial status before making any choices in real estate or club membership.
Thank you, Kathy

Ron Thomas answered:
I can tell you what is "usual" for California:
but I cannot tell you what you will pay; remember, everything is negotiable.

The Escrow Fee is normally SPLIT, 50/50
The Owner's Title is normally paid by the SELLER
The County Transfer Tax ($1.10/thousand) is normally paid by the SELLER.

The fees/charges can vary: I suggest you decide upon a Title Company locally, and ask the Title officer to make up a hypothetical HUD1 using $840,000. They want your business, they should do this for you.

Good luck and may God bless
