HOA monthly dues due date

Answer

As Realtors we cannot give legal advise and per our laws must refer you to an attorney. However with that being said - If you have already started a dialog with the HOA - and you will need to do so in writing to document your conversations, then your recourse would be in small claims court if you cannot work it out together.When you bought the property you signed on to the HOA bylaws.  If you can prove you are mailing the check with sufficient time to arrive before it is late - then you would most likely have a good case before a judge.  I would assume, and I am not an attorney, that once you prove your case in court that they would not assess the fees any more.You may also be subject to mediation if that is in your HOA bylaws as well.

can I list my home as sale by owner

Answer

You can absolutely sell FSBO however you will need to market the home like a top agent would so here are the main items you will need to do:Get a professional photographerGet a virtual tour companyGet an MLS Only listing so you can be visible on the main listing servicePay for premium placement on Zillow.com (you cannot get premium placement on Realtor.com, Trulia or the other sites not being a Realtor)Make your home as available as possible for buyersCooperate with buyers agents at least 2.5% of the sales priceHold open houses with a lot of signage (you cannot post open houses online as a FSBO)Get the proper forms to protect yourself from the Realtor you do the MLS only entryGet proper information on doing your disclosuresEnlist a good escrow company to walk you through the escrow processMake sure you comply with all state laws and use trusted vendors.[Content removed by Zillow Moderator.

can a house listed on zillow be a fraud itself?

Answer

Absolutely.  Zillow is a user generated information site so it is prone to having bad or fraudulent information.  If you do see such things you can flag and report the items.  You can also ask a Featured agent to make the flag for you.

Can you please fix your error?

Answer

Linda,I wish that we had the power to change the estimate on this site.  All of us are just advertisers.  I looked up your home and although I won't post your address I do see a couple issues with the data Zillow has for your property.  They are listing the lot at 7,000 sqft when it is 16,000.  This alone would have a big impact on the valuation.You should claim your home on Zillow and you can then make changes to the profile.  I know is does not feel good to see a lower price but realize this is just an info site and has no bearing on the true value of your home.Let me know if you need more guidance,

Do you know if the city of Fullerton would allow a white picked vinyl fence to be installed?

Answer

I know your home well.  The multi-unit on the corner.  I double checked your zoning and you are R2-P.  This means you are a Residential allowing a second residence subject to Preservation code.  So the answer would be that you would need to get zoning approval from the City.  It is very easy to do so.  Walk into City Hall and go to the second floor. Sign in and check that you want to speak with zoning.  Christine in the zoning department is very nice and helpful. You will most likely be able to install a vinyl fence however I would get her approval before moving forward.

International do the mortgage with cosigner?

Response

There are many loan programs for foreign nationals.  Just make sure to get a 'Good Faith Estimate' from any lender before signing up with them.  Also make sure they do a full pre-approval not just a pre-qualification.  Good luck
