Hi Viola,

I would check and contact the local police department if you are really concerned. Hope you feel safe in your new area.

Have your agent and/or short sale negotiator stay on top of it. Getting extensions has gotten a lot harder, Wells Fargo put a stop to all extensions and I'm sure other banks will follow soon. ... more

Hi there,

It will specify in the contract when the seller must vacate.

Hello Luny2nl,

If the seller accepted your offer and the bank approved the short sale how did they also offer a loan mod? Something smells fishy.

Hello Kenneth,

I have been told for builders grade construction it's about $200-$250 a foot. Best bet is to get some estimates.

A land contract might be an option if you have already saved up a decent down payment; a lease-option would be an excellent alternative if otherwise.

Hello Lynn,

As long as you have City approval you could do a drought tollerant landscaping or grass. I think the main place to focus is the front yard and not the parkway area.

You need to talk to a real estate professional. We have access to such information. You usually have to be a licensed real estate agent to access this information. That is why there are many businesses that require you to pay a fee to get it. They want you to pay for their license fees.

If you are looking for that in a Los Angeles area, please give me a call. I can forward you foreclosures and probate sales as soon as they hit the market.

I've found many landlord that are struggling with their properties and they will do anything to get the rent today.
Go online to craigslist and call some landlord and negotiate.
You will find it very helpful

Good Luck

Confidentiality. The banks and/or sellers can't divulge any information about the offer or the buyers without written approval from the buyers. That's just the way it is.

If you're the one making the offer, would you want other buyers to know what you'd offered so they could outbid you? ... more

John Barry answered:
Hi Kareem,

Please see this link below for information & some frequently asked questions regarding the $8,000.00 tax credit available to first time home buyers:

The time period for the credit was also extended when the bill was passed into law, so the credit is now available to buyers purchasing property prior to December 1, 2009 (the deadline is no longer in June).

This credit, combined with low interest rates & great value available, all combine to make this an excellent time to purchase. I'm an agent with Coldwell Banker out of their Sherman Oaks office - if you have any other questions or would like any more information, please email me at or call me at 323-810-7976 - I would be more than happy to help you out.

Thanks, take care..
