No. Motor homes / mobile homes are considered "Personal Property" - not real estate. If you own the land underneath, then it is real estate and you can legally deduct property taxes and interest on a mortgage. Currently, you cannot deduct property taxes or interest on your IRS 1040. ... more

Hello Almightysavo, there is no such thing but if your meaning a lender to pre-approve you with your social security income that is not a problem.

Do you have down payment and closing costs or do you need down payment and closing cost assistance programs? How much do you pay in rent and what is the maximum payment you are looking to achieve?

The purchase in 92107 zip code start from 410k for 1bd 1ba condo and up. You will need to be pre-approved to be able to know your purchasing power and how much you qualify to buy.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Any agent can assist you once you have a pre-approval letter from a lender like myself.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

CA has automatic and declared homestead exemptions to protect a person or family’s residence from certain types of creditors. The homeowner does not have to record any documents to receive “automatic” protection. There are some benefits to recording a "declared" homestead exemption. The topic is beyond the scope of internet advice, but you could ask your Realtor to provide you with an article from CAR about California homestead exemptions.
Hope this helps!

Any change in title could affect a future sale with respect to providing seller's title insurance to a future buyer. Sometimes title insurance companies will require an affidavit from the previous parties on title even if they have already signed a quitclaim. I would recommend that you talk to your current title insurance provider. ... more

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Attorney fees vary so nobody can advise you as to how much it will cost. Start contacting real estate attorneys (make sure they deal with real estate) and ask them how much their fee is. The issue also has to do with what type of lien you have. Is it a mechanics lien? An IRS lien? A property tax lien? A lender's lien? ... more

It does, but it is very scarce in this market with a shortage of homes for sale, sale sell fast not needing to rent them. In a market with lots of homes for sale and few buyers, sellers will rent them and take the chance on a lease purchase. You still need to be able to qualify for a mortgage, and most often they give you 1 to no more than 2 years to save for own payment and closing costs. There are far many scams in this market them actual lease purchase homes ... more
