Orange County Walkable Neighborhoods | Understanding Walkability Scores

orange county walkable neighborhoodsOrange County walkable neighborhoods have walkability scores. Here are some keys to understanding walkability scores.

What is a walkability score?

All Orange County walkable neighborhoods will have what is called a walkability score. These scores can range from 0-100 and they indicate how accessible local amenities are for residents who want to accomplish most errands on foot. In Orange County Real Estate For example, The city of Rancho Santa Margarita, CA currently has a walk score of 46 due to the fact that the city is spread out. Some neighborhoods are in close proximity of Art and Community facilities, Shopping, entertainment, health facilities and the like and others are car dependent areas where driving is more likely required. The Rancho Santa Margarita walkability score is not high even though there are areas within the city which are very walkable from certain neighborhoods.

Keep in mind that, of course, even within lower walk score cities you can still live in a neighborhood that is very walkable. Your location within the city will determine how walkable your lifestyle will be. But an overall score can help guide you to cities that are deemed more walkable if desired. The Rancho Santa Margarita walkability score is not high even though there are areas within the city which are very walkable from certain neighborhoods.

Below are walkability scores for Orange County walkable neighborhoods:

Orange County Short Sale Realtor -Tips on Preventing Orange County Foreclosures, CDPE, SFR

Meet Jesse Madison, your Orange County Short Sale Realtor

The success of your Orange County, CA Short Sale depends on many factors. Having a solid pricing strategy will help you  prevent pitfalls and delays that could undermine your goal of successfully selling your home. If the price is not a market value price the bank may decline your sale and you could lose your buyer and need to start over. Proper initial pricing will help you avoid this costly mistake and prevent foreclosure. Remember it is a race against the foreclosure clock.

Thorough review of all liens against the property is a must.  Once all lien holders are contacted you must successfully negotiate all terms and submit complete packages to all lien holders to obtain short sale approval.

There are many compelling reasons to do a short sale. Completing your short sale can save your credit and you may be able to purchase a home again in as little as 2 years. Many banks are now pre-approving Short Sales and are paying some sellers as much as $30,000 to cooperate with short sales ( COOP Program). Banks will also pay sellers closing costs on Short Sales.

Remember to ask your tax professional about Debt Forgiveness on short sales as there has been an extension to the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act.

Top 5 Reasons short sales in Orange County are now easier than ever.

Understanding the top 5 reasons short sales in Orange County are now easier than ever will help you realize that you now have options. Help is here. You can get your short sale approved quickly so that you can sell your home at no additional cost!

Orange County Short Sale Agent

  1. Banks are now pre-approving short sales. Yes its true! You will actually get your Price approved before your home gets listed. Then all you need to do is get the home under contract and close escrow quickly.
  2. Banks are paying some distressed sellers to sell their home as SHORT SALES rather than Foreclose. Some banks will compensate sellers as much as $30,000 to cooperate with short sales.
  3. Banks will pay for seller closing costs. Sellers can virtually complete the short sale with no out of pocket costs. This is a huge relief to cash poor sellers that are behind on their mortgages.
  4. Debt Forgiveness. With the extension of the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act, sellers will, will, for one more year, exempt the taxation of mortgage debt that is forgiven when homeowners and their mortgage lenders negotiate a short sale or loan modification (including any principal reduction). Sellers in CA can take comfort that C.A.R. is sponsoring SB30 which will conform state law to federal law regarding Mortgage Forgiveness.
  5. You can buy a home again in as little as 2 years. This is a big consideration as opposed to a 7 year wait when you allow your home to go into Foreclosure. Foreclosures remain on your public record for 7 years. Short Sales are not reported on a persons credit history. FHA – If current at the close of short sale, a homeowner may apply for an FHA loan immediately. If homeowner is late before close of short sale closing, will be eligible for FHA loan after 3 years.
