I haven't seen much lately under 80k with water,septic and electric. I've been showing quite a few land listings in the area. I just did a search for you including water, electric, septic, and at least 5 acres for under 100k. I did come up with one listing. It is steep and probably not usuable for cattle. If you want to work with someone that is seeing the land listings in the area feel free to contact me via email or phone. 530-626-6960 Broker 01385077 ... more

However give us more details. I'm curious to see the responses you get. PS feel free to email or call me and I'd be happy to give you some numbers for local lenders. ... more

There are a few areas that we can send you more information on. The Somerset and the grizzly flat areas are really nice but so is the Lotus area.

Will you be paying with cash or getting a loan? (I don't know many lenders who lend on bare dirt these days). I had a listing for 17 acres that lingered and did not sell. It is on the border of Pollock Pines and Placerville. ... more

Hi Windowpainter, has a list of homes for sale that they personally own but a Realtor will be able to help you with all homes that can qualify for FHA approved financing. Generally, only condos need prior FHA approval. Single Family homes can almost always go FHA as long as they meet criteria guidelines. Your biggest obstical in this market is finding homes that are in FHA quality condition. There are also some lenders that will escrow money for smaller repair items making FHA obtainable for homes that would not otherwise qualify. Please feel free to contact me. I would be happy to help you find an agent that is well versed in FHA quidelines. Good Luck and take care!

A short sale is the sale of a property for LESS than the amount of the mortgage. It involves the seller's lender in that the seller's lender (bank) has to apprve the deal since they will receive less than what they are owed. A link to a great explanation of short sales can be found below. ... more

Hi Mark,
As you're a broker, I would think you already know answer, but for the benefit of the public, I would say yes. Multiple offers on the ones I've seen or had listed if under $200k and not a fixer. ... more

Marilyn Gibson answered:
I am not from your area, but in this area the "top listing agent" is not always the best choice for a buyer's agent. I would suggest that you "interview" a few of the local agents at an open house, or call the local broker and ask for suggestions for an agent who knows the area and works well with buyers. It can sometimes be a delicate transaction when the listing agent also represents the buyer. ... more
