Realtors usually only have access to rentals that are listed in the MLS. Sounds like you need to find an apartment locater, they are typically paid by the apartment complex. Go to the gorcery stores and look for the apartment rental booklets that may give you some help. Good luck. ... more

Have you already negotiated the lease? Your question may seem like the most important one but there are many factors to consider in negotiating a long term lease. Just having evidence of the comps, if they can be found, is really not the only thing you need. It is sometimes hard to find useable comps in the rental market because of the mix of long term and seasonal rentals. Really, you need to have an agent that is helping you and advising you as opposed to just looking for some of the answers online. You don't have to pay for this service and you are really only cutting yourself short by not getting professional assistance. Honestly, depending on the neighborhood I would expect to find rental amounts anywhere from $4,000 to $5,000 for a 4 bedroom. 4 bedroom rentals are not terribly common and usually demand a much stronger rental amount than their smaller counterparts. If you don't mind 3 bedrooms I would probably recommend going that route so that you could potentially negotiate a lower rent and beneficial terms. ... more

I would need to know more about your pending circumstances to give you a qualified answer. In other words, are you looking for seller financing? If so, 25% cash down is kind of the minimum but is significant enough as a contender for getting a seller to consider carrying the note. Myself, I landed seller financing for a home (which is not easy) and can give you firsthand info on how that played out and what the ideal situation is. I have also facilitated sales with this type of financing. There are numerous factors to consider from both the seller's and buyer's side to make this type of deal work. I could write a book about it, but I won't do that here on Trulia!

Feel free to contact me at 760-464-1205, or for an overview on how this can work out. I would be happy to give you more info.

It is sometimes hard to know the dues for a mobile home community as they can change and are sometimes not posted on the MLS. Whenever you are looking at a specific mobile home park I always recommend that buyers direct their inquires on fees to the park manager. For the property at 95 Calle Del Espacio I believe the manager's number is: 760-328-7118. They should be able to answer your questions about fees more accurately than most agents. I hope this help! ... more

Greetings Nancy,

As a professional Real Estate Broker & Property Mgr, we are experiencing great demand for rental properties in areas much closer than the low-desert area that are comparable in pricing. So much so, that the demand is greater than the supply. That is to say, we are always in need of additional properties to rent out to displaced families. I would be more than happy to discuss "hot" areas in demand, rent rates, etc. You may contact me directly at (909) 376-6441 at your earliest convenience. ... more

There are certain M&M contractors whom may have additional conveyance requirements also like the grass length in season or any potential dangerous debris with on the exterior property.

There are pet restrictions for this property, however, I can't be exactly sure what they are until Monday, when the HOA management company reopens for business. Even when they are clearly spelled out on the MLS, you can't always be sure the policies are published correctly by the agent or are outdated. Gold Coast Management is the HOA mgmt company and their number is (760)202-9880.

If I can be of further assistance in your home search, please don't hesitate to call or email me at 760-464-1205,

To give back to the community, I donate closing cost credits to buyers and sellers who serve our country: military vets, active military, K-12 teachers, cops, paramedics, nurses, and fire. I am also very active with animal charities.

I have an Awesome Realtor that may be able to show this property on Friday. Also, the only way most Realtors take the time to show property is by making sure that the potential Buyer, such as yourself, is qualified and ready to go. So be sure to be prequalified.

Call/text me at 951-210-2101 and I would love to recommend you one of my top notch Realtors in the Desert. Also, if you are not prequalified, feel free to call me or look at my webpages below. I would love the opportunity to earn your business.

I work for a direct lender headquartered in Irvine, California. Feel free to look me up at the following websites.

Thank you for looking. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi McLovin,

The purchase price is $235K - as the contract stands. Now, the buyer will only get the $206K financed. So, they would need to pay the difference of $29K in cash. However, they stated in the addendum they would only pay $3,500, not $29K. So, that said, the seller can lower the price to $209,500 or the buyer can cancel contract, or the seller and buyer can meet somewhere in the middle (but neither of them has to). The FHA appraisal of $206K will stay with the property for 6 months so if the current contract is cancelled and the seller accepts another offer, if it's FHA the appraised value will still be $206K so the seller would probably not want to accept another FHA offer if they want more than the $209,500 the current buyer is offering. An addendum will be needed to change the purchase price to the $209,500.

Find a place that is owned and managed by an individual, not a Management Company:
Go meet them to see the place.
Tell them your story; open and honestly.
