You Don't Own the House Until the Deal's Done - 04/26/11 07:14 PM
Attention potential buyers: On behalf of my fellow agents, I beg you, DO NOT begin moving your belongings into a home until the escrow is closed and your agent has handed you the keys to your new home. We all know how anxious you can feel as you get close to your final closing date. However, until that date, the house does not belong to you. No matter how small the glitch seems that is holding up the escrow, it still is not your house. By moving in 'just a few little things' you are actually breaking and entering into someone (3 comments)

California Sellers - You Need to Know This! - 04/23/11 11:07 AM
Effective July 1, 2011 all homes must have carbon monoxide detectors installed as a conditition of sale. This means that, if you are planning to sell, or have your house currently listed, it is a good idea to purchase some of the detectors now. The requirement is much like that for smoke detectors that has been in place for years. It will be another item that inspectors look for and that you will have to sign for in disclosures. It's always best to know ahead of time of upcoming changes!

Where Are All the Stoves? - 04/05/11 01:10 PM
I am amazed at the abundance of missing stoves in foreclosure properties these days. Where did the former owners take them all? I presume that most people who lost their homes to foreclosure have turned to renting and, don't most rentals come with stoves? Is there some kind of absent stove epidemic out there? Will we come across a large stove-hoarder cave when this housing downturn rights itself? I don't remember any time in my own house-hunting days when there were so many houses with the large gaping hole in the kitchen where a stove once was housed. Why are homeowners (2 comments)
