I recently bought a smart phone here in California and was shocked at the sales tax charged. It was an HTC Incredible with Verizon service and after the "new every two year" deal and some rebates, the phone cost about $50. However the sales tax was based on the smart phone MSRP of over $500! So t...
When buying a foreclosure, the disclosures a buyer receives are slim to none. The banks which own the properties have never lived in them, and only owned them a short time, so they are relieved of much of their disclosure duty. However, the banks and the listing agents probably know more about th...
With the FHA spot approval going away earlier this year, we're left with getting a DELRAP or HRAP approval for some condominiums and townhomes. Now I am not a loan officer, but I do have to figure out how to get an FHA buyer's offer accepted in a non-FHA approved community and try to convince the...
When buying foreclosed or flipped homes, the amount of information about the home coming from the listing agent or seller is sometimes minimal. Besides knocking on neighbor's doors to find out what they know, the buyer's agent should probably search the MLS for the past year to see if the propert...
Carlsbad Crest and Las Playas are two townhome and condominium communities built between 1985 and 1987 in southwest Carlsbad, CA.

Credit scores need to be 720 or higher, but with lower closing costs(no FHA funding fee) and only a slightly large...

In the boom days of 2002-2006, consumers benefitted because even people who should never have been able to get a home were able to do so. In today's market, serious buyers find themselves having to make multiple offers and may give up in frustration in their attempt to get a home in many parts of...
As most buyer's agents know, the bank selling a home in foreclosure will often take a cash offer that is less than an offer which contains a financing contingency. That may make sense, and may seem harmless enough, but let's look at it in more detail. By taking a cash offer, you can see how a lot...
Homes in good neighborhoods, priced right and in decent condition are getting multiple offers. Why is that? The number of homes being sold is definitely higher year over year, and from February to about June is the most activity each year on a seasonal basis, so that accounts for some of the comp...
