You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Hi David,

Sorry to hear you are having trouble finding homes in Victorville. We have low inventory in Victorville and the houses for sale are moving fairly quickly.

Better look on your search! :)

Maria ,
At the present moment we have a shortage of homes. More buyers than homes. If the property is priced comparatively to its surronding area. It may last 5-7 days. If the seller is unrealistic to the market and the agent just wants to have a listing , it could stay on the market longer. If you are a buyer please feel free to call me and I can find out what you may be qualified to buy and start a search for you.
If you are the seller I can run what we call a Residential Property Report to find the value of the home .
Happy New Year ,

Start calling some bankruptcy attorneys to see if you can qualify. They might be able to help you stall the foreclosure process and be able to keep your home. Talk to a professional, they usually will give a free half hour consultation if you ask. Good luck. ... more

Bo Goulet, broker answered:

Obtaining a VA home loan is almost always easier and more affordable than an FHA insured mortgage. VA home loans have more lenient underwriting guidelines, NO DOWN PAYMENT requirement, and NO MORTGAGE INSURANCE. Under most conditions, you'll just have to put $500 into escrow as an earnest money deposit, and sometimes $500 to your lender for a credit report and appraisal fee. Both of these can be refunded to you at the close of escrow! Then, simply start making your monthly payment 4 to 6 weeks after you move in!

A HUD home is a house that is being sold by the US department of Housing and Urban Development. You can purchase a HUD home using a VA home mortgage!

If you have any further questions, please contact me directly -

Rent to Own
Yes, it is perfectly legal and acceptable in todays economic climate. Many negatives answers are listed here and they are all written by realtors or brokers. Anybody care to wonder why realtors and brokers are so against it?

You don't have to pay a 6% commission (3%buyer agent, 3%seller agent) is the biggest reason they advise against it. If the " licensed" real estate industry was so above board and looking out for you, why/how did the housing bubble occur? Somebody had to sell all those houses knowing that bogus loans were used by people that could never repay. The only thought was of higher & more frequent commissions! That is what a RE agent or broker won't tell you!!

Call me or E-mail me if you have any questions or want the truth about Rent to Own.

Pamela Wiest answered:
1. Buy homes 1978 or newer due to RRP laws, 2. Remember that rents have dropped in the High Desert area 3. Get a comfortable rent that would include water and trash since tenants are notorious for not paying these and they fall on you the owner no matter what. 4. And because you are an overseas buyer, remember your tax consequences when you sell. You can go into my website which wilol give you areas to calculate your rate of return, mortgage payments etc. My website is a little outdated lately due to family illness but it still has a lot of information that may be useful for you in your purchases. ... more

Yes. There are a couple of plans where this could be possible. There are some disadvantages to these plans though. Given all of your options, you would probably choose 1% down, though.

Kawana Marshall answered:
I would suggest opening at least 2 lines of credit for at least 6 months before seeking a mortgage loan. The two lines of credit should be a secured credit card with at least a $1500 credit limit and small consumer loan of at least $5000. It is also a good idea to open a checking and savings account if you do not already have one. Once you have established a credit history, I suggest that you sign up with a credit monitoring service such as so that you can review your credit score on a continuous basis. Good Luck. ... more

Hello Red,
You can check the tax assessor's office to find recently sold homes by the buyer's name.

Here is the link to San Bernadino's tax assessor's office where you may find some helpful information:
