Hello Don,

You are right all HOA's have different rules. However based on my experience you're allowed to have a pet(s), within reason. You'd would have to check the specific HOA's rules to verify. Why specific tract in Laguna Niguel are looking at?

Yes - as long as it is stated in the Escrow instructions you signed. I've always seen cancellation fees stated in the instructions but often times the escrow company will choose not to charge them even though they can. ... more

What is your agent suggesting--there are no set standards as to how much below asking an offer should be, much will depend on how badly do you want the property-- have you reviewed recently sold similar properties in the immediate area--see what the data suggests as to a fair offer--is the property priced on target for today's market or slightly below--if so multiple offers could occur--your agent can best advise as it relates to the specific property. ... more

Hi Gini,

It depends on what you are asking. If you are wanting to buy a home at a court auction, then there are services you can subscribe to which will list those for you. The problem is that you need cash and you are buying the home "as-is".

If you are looking for a home that's been foreclosed already and is ready for sale, a Realtor is probably your best bet. Banks will list these homes with a Realtor and they will appear on the MLS, you can see these on and other search sites, but if you do not have a buyer's agent of your own, you are dealing with a bank based on their agent alone.....I really wouldn't recomend this. A buyer's agent costs you nothing in it's a good idea to have your own representation.

I'd love to help you.....I'd suggest that you use this site and others to read blog posts and comments I've made, if you like my ideas and the way I work, I'd be happy to email you some listings of bank-owned homes.

Hi Liz,
I haven't seen any rent with option to buy lately. Don't really know why anyone would want to do that now. You can rent a place in south Orange county under $3000 a month. the schools are pretty terific there!

There's no reason not to sign a buyer/broker agreement. It 's a common contract between buyers and Agents and sets the stage for a professional working relationship.
