Make me move? What does this mean?

Response

"Make me move" enables property owners to put a price on their property without real commitment.  If a potential buyer is interested in the property, the seller can then decide to move further with the transaction. It's a good way to test whether your property is worth the price you think it is.

Is there any offers available for first time buyers? If so what are they?

Answer

Hi Cindi,You should check with the City you want to move to. They sometimes offer great downpayment assistance (for Los Angeles, it ranges from $50,000 to $75,000 in the form of a deferred loan): for example, there is the LIPA program targeting the low income households.  For the medium income households, there is the HERO and NSP programs available.Let me know if you want more information on these programs.Good luck.

how much is the HOA dues

Answer

HOA dues depend on the location of the building, the building itself and the amenities you get (insurance, common area maintenance, gym/pool facilities...).  A local real estate agent should be able to look that up for you providing you give them the address of the complex....

Although I am not planning to sale will you give me the market rate on my home?

Answer

Zillow is a good source to give you a ballpoint estimate of your house.  However, if you want a more detailed analysis, you should contact a local real estate agent who will performed a CMA, Comparative Market Analysis, which will show you all the recent sales, the pending, the active, etc.  Though not an exact science,  you will have an informed idea of the market value for your property after reviewing the document.  If you need help finding a local agent, let me know and I will be happy to help.

down payment assistance

Answer

Though designed as a financing assistance  --as opposed to downpayment assistance-- in the purchase of real estate, cities also offer program to help first-time homebuyers getting into the market. For example, in Los Angeles, eligible buyers can get purchase assistance financing through The City of Los Angeles Housing Department (LAHD), also known as the LIPA program.  I have a buyer who has been successful in securing this financing.  There are other programs too worth looking into.Good luck!
