That's terrible that no one is getting back to you. Have you gotten pre-approved? That may help lock down an agent as they'll know they are working with someone qualified to buy.

I'm sorry to say I don't know the area so I don't know who to recommend. There is a Short Sale Specialist: that is active on Trulia.

Here is a network of short sale specialists:

Best of luck!

Hi Lisa,

There are currently 10 single family detached homes on the market in El Segundo, ranging from $645,000 to $1,550,000.

Are you looking to purchase a home in the El Segundo area? I would be happy to forward you information/photos by email about the properties that are currently on the market. Please send me your email address and let me know if you are also open to other cities surrounding El Segundo.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Emily Knell answered:
That's a tricky issue.

It sounds to me like you're on time with your mortgage payments yet you're approved for short sale, this is good for you. I have closed a few short sales where the owner is current on payments.

I would really need you to email me directly to give you the best possible answer.

I don't see why the buyer needs a THIRD extension? BUT it will likely be better for you, to let the current buyer close, if they can. It will take longer to get a new buyer approved, maybe 60+ days. Then again, I don't know how long it's been since your current buyer has been extending their close of escrow & how much longer they want the "4th" extension to close, to be. ?

I have a LOT of experience in this area, I'm happy to help. Please shoot me an email directly, I don't look back on this same Trulia posting for answers after mine.

Hello Signe,

Your house WILL appraise for $600,000 in today`s market and after all the upgrades you have done to it, I have a comparable that was sold not too far a way from your house for $585,000 and that was a 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms house with 1,700 square feet of living space and only 10,650 lot size and that house has no view.

Feel free to email me if you have any questions,

Tony Norohian answered:
House seems to be available to buy but not listed to lease. The asking price is only $374,900 and with rates today I imagine that a $11,000 down payment and a 30 year fixed loan would result in a mortgage payment of about $1,600/month. Also, I wonder if the seller would consider leasing it to you instead of selling it. Shall we find out? Give me a call.

carlos parrague answered:
Too many variables.
Have you checked with the City? Is it allowed? Will you have to do additional site work to add parking?
Will it require sprinklers?
What material for outside walls? Masonry, steel stud and stucco, other?
What type of roof?
Are you including any light and/or power in your definition of shell?
How about a bathroom or just extension of plumbing?
Is the addition to the front, side or rear of the building?
The entire building will probably have to be brought up to code, do you also include that in the price?
Give me a call, I can work design/build with you to minimize your cost.

If the seller is aware of the problem then he/she must disclose it. If not, you should have a geologist take a look at the property to determine if there is an issue or not.

Yes. Just be prepared that the lender was referred by the REALTOR so they most likely will let them know you are working with somebody else. Might want to talk to the old REALTOR first before making the switch. Just a good courtesy. ... more
