No. I wouldn't ask an agent in Fresno about remodeling costs in San Jose. I posted my question under the forum titled, "Remodel and Renovate". You don't have to answer but nor do you need to be insulting and snarky. I expect there are people who may be knowledgeable, including agents if they care to answer, about this question.... more
You have not provided any details regarding your home; are you in a Condo or a Detached home on an Acre lot?
My point: details matter!
Speak with a Realtor® and investigate a possible exit strategy; or not, based on the relative demand your current home has in today's market!
Before you contact a Realtor® review the blog post below to understand how 2014 will not be "business as usual" as relatively compared to 2013.

You are referring to leased parks, I'm sure and those homes most likely were all installed with permits at that time. The larger the lot size the more desirable the location is to buyers.... more
The most common objections to mobile homes that I hear from clients, are that they depreciate like cars, you do not own the land in the mobile home park, you must rent your space, they are difficult and expensive to finance, the space rent is often very high, they are not as well built as "stick built:" single family homes... more
The only online public source that I am aware of is the Santa Clara County Assessor's office:
They keep reducing the amount of information they make publicly available. The local multiple listing service records do not go back that far. Visiting the county recorder would give you access to more information than is available online.

Let me be the first to alert you that it is not possible to furnish any information about the house in which you are interested because you did not furnish any information about the house. It helps immensely if you would attach the link to the post that you saw that made you interested in the house.
Also…do not be misled by a low rental amount…too low to make real sense, that is. There are many scams having to do with rental properties on the internet and the biggest red flag for all of them is that the perpetrators offer a rental rate that is so low it grabs the attention of unwary potential renters. If the rent is LOW the first question to ask yourself is “does that make sense?”... more
A good source to answer your question is any licensed loan officer; therefore your sister should consider a visit; after he/she reviews all her financial information, a determination on qualification can be made...... more

I think it is a risky and a bad idea to post your phone number on the internet. You should call some local Realtors and go that route rather than open yourself to who-knows-who to call you. Good luck.... more
No it doesn't make sense. What makes sense is to get 1 good one that actually means something. Pre-approvals do matter when making an offer. Some are not worth the paper they are written on while others detail a full picture and instill confidence in your qualifications. All you need is one pre-approval. Once you go into contract, you are under no obligation to use the person that pre-approved you so you are free to shop for the best rate/service/etc.
My recommendation is that you find one person that will properly pre-approve you by verifying your credit, employment, income, assets, down payment and all seasoning requirements for them. In addition they should obtain a tri-merged credit report with score and run automated underwriting on your file.
Note that I say one person rather than one company. When shopping for a mortgage, it's the individual that will make the biggest difference in your success or failure.... more
Unfortunately it does not mean that you will get the loan. It is quite a process to get the loan done. Once you find a home, not only do you have to qualify but so does the loan. You must maintain your credit throughout the process. Lenders are getting tighter on their regulations. You also should inspect any home your purchasing before even sending out an appraiser. If the home inspection comes back bad then you can save yourself an appraisal fee.... more
