Ralph's Gluten-Free Update - The LA Real Estate Market As I "Seez" it....June 8th, 2014
OK, Peeps.  So we're hummin' along.  Still quite a bit of activity in the market.  Multiple offers on those properties that show well and are priced correctly. 
Home prices continue to rise based on the low inventory levels.  Interest rates took a slight dip last week for the first time in a while.  This will continue to keep the market stimulated as the lower rates continue to make the payments for most folks affordable.  Conforming loans ($417,000 and below) are averaging around 4.25%.  I did, however, … (5 comments)

ralph gorgoglione: I rarely do this, but just wanted to share this quote....... - 04/16/14 08:55 AM
I rarely do this on a blog post, but I just wanted to share this quote........
"Good people are not those who lack flaws, the brave are not those who feel no fear, and the generous are not those who never feel selfish. Extraordinary people are not extraordinary because they are invulnerable to unconscious biases. They are extraordinary because they choose to do something about it."
- Shankar Vandantam
I really love this quote and wanted to share. It's how you deal with your humanity that creates your character. With Media, TV and film, we get so much idealism that … (13 comments)

 Los Angeles 411: Raging Waters in San Dimas, California

Only someone from Southern California would post a blog about a water park in the beginning of February.  I realize that many of you live in areas where you are looking out over frozen bodies of water.  However, winter will pass before we know it and it will once again be time to engage in summer activities, many of which include water, so here is a fun place to consider if you decide to take a summer vacation to Southern California.
