What are the typical seller closing costs in California?

Answer

Typically seller closing costs are minimal. You pay the commissions for both agents, property taxes up to the day of recording for the buyer, property taxes up to the day or recording for the buyer, HOA dues if applicable, and then your loan is paid off and you receive the balance of the sale price. You may split city transfer taxes if they are required. That's pretty much it.

how can you incorrectly state that Crocker School, Hillsborough

Answer

You are correct that this is wrong information.  This is an old listing and perhaps the agent was from out of our area?  We never tell a prospective buyer which schools the property is in, as boundaries change and schools become impacted.  In fact, we always have them call the school districts and give the address so they can determine if the school is the one they want.

What are the boundaries to Hayward Park?

Answer

Our local MLS, SAMCAR, delineates the boundaries as El Camino Real on the West, East 4th on the North, S. Delaware on the East and 92 on the South.  That's the official real estate boundary.  The houses on Delaware on the west side of the street are in, those on the east side are in Sunnybrae.  I hope this helps.

Correct the sales price!

Answer

The barriers that this site puts up for someone to get to customer support are unbelieveable. I am unable to get anything to change on this site. It makes no difference which browser I use or which computer it doesn't work. The price is so dramatically wrong it's almost funny and since Zillow didn't have this price initially I find it even more amazing. When I claimed the listing in June I put in the list price. Now, the price changed and i have no way to make a correction and no one to get help from. I guess I will have to begin bloggin about what poor customer support you have because nothing esle will happen. This is unforgiveable on your part. If you are looking to have real estate agents partner this is no way to do it.

Up dating status not opening

I am the listing agent for 24 Jenna Lane, Half Moon Bay, CA - somehow the price was changed by $2 million!  Yes, from the list price of $2,888,888 down to $888,888.  I've been trying to get back into the listing to change the price and when I click on the change status link it goes no where.  I am the claimed listing agent yet I am told that i am not.  How do I fix this?  This is something I've been working on for over a week.

California still mandating additional housing development in spite of glut

Response

I don't live in Southern CA but I do live in the San Francisco Bay area and we are short 20,000 housing units for our region. What does that mean?  They are projecting growth of the state and if it continues as it has, we will not have enough housing.  In our area, many areas haven't seen any drop in value because there aren't many houses for sale or with mortgage problems.  We need to have more affordable housing for the people who currently have to commute 50 miles or more one way to their jobs daily.  We don't have much of that and that contributes to a lot of the shortages. This is a statewide problem but some areas have less issues than others.  Socialized housing?  Of course not.  The state isn't building it.  The state isn't telling the community who must build it.  The state isn't saying who has to live in it.  The state is only saying we don't have enough housing to fill the needs of everyone who want to live in California.  This has nothing to do with land ownership.  If you can afford to buy the land and develop it within the guidelines of the state then you are the landowner, not the state.
