Hi M,I'm 45, single independent, and a first time prospective home buyer/house hunting, AND I live in Los Angeles! <snip>One house I was considering gouged up to over $65,000 in the 4 1/2 months I was searching on the www.realty.com web site. <snip>It's in foreclosure/the bank has it! And to top it off, in 1990 the very same house sold for $160,000 (courtesy of the Fool's Home Price Check). Remember I said SOLD for, not what it's value was actually assessed at by the tax assessor(www.domania.com listed it's value at $64,500). <snip>The homes in the neighborhood across the street and around the corner shot up from an average of $255,000 to $650,000-$850,000 within a period of 9 months! No, I'm not exaggerating! Most of them are still on the market. This is mighty confusing, M....And all in L.A.?A home available for $65,000? Is that a doll-house? Dog-house? Refrigerator box in the L.A. river wash?Please do 'splain a bit more?(You find beaters for $65K and Cath's gonna be on YOU like a duck on a bug!)Cheers,Dave DonhoffNational Mortgage Broker/Banker
