long beach homes realtor: Good News for First-time California Buyers! Just 1% of the Purchase Price can get you through the door! - 12/14/10 05:30 AM
California has a “first-time buyers” assistance program for moderate income buyers know as the CalHFA program. Although the loan is a typical FHA loan that requires a minimum of a 3.5% down payment it does offer a somewhat lower interest rate. The really neat aspect of this program is that a portion of the down payment can be obtained through a 2nd loan supplied by CHDAP, California Homebuyer’s Downpayment Assistance Program. And unbelievable as this sounds, this second loan is that is not due until the house is sold or the loan paid in full. One requirement of the program is … (0 comments)

long beach homes realtor: Just 10% down and Still Avoid a Mortgage Insurance Payment? - 12/06/10 06:20 PM
I am a lover of the win-win situation and here is one for the record books. If you feel the seller is in a situation where they can offer a 2nd loan to the buyer don't be afraid to broach the subject. The seller can take advantage of a high interest rate yield on his money and the buyer saves tons of money by removing the mortgage insurance premium and payment. This information was provided to my by Doug Van Duser from Western Mutual Homes Loans in Long Beach, CA. Thanks for thinking outside the box Doug!

long beach homes realtor: My Los Altos Neighbor is more than just a casual bike rider, he is a movie maker too! - 11/10/10 05:02 PM
For years I watched a young gentleman ride his bike down my street never dreaming he was the independent film producer of the documentary "Riding Bikes with the Dutch" that had been making news in Long Beach for the past year. A chance encounter with his wife last week lead me to this realization. I can vouch for Michael Bauch; he rarely goes anywhere in a car and everyday he rides his bike!
Mike’s many trips to Europe, where he observed a much different approach to biking than our own, inspired the making of the film and have caused him … (1 comments)

Our first free shredding events was hugely successful and went off without a hitch this Saturday at Stanford Middle School in the Los Altos area due the contribution of many. We started early at 9:45, and it was a good thing we did, because Dan Hartnett the owner/operator of Sergeant Shredder and his assistant, the very entertaining Dan, worked steady until we closed shop at 3:00. By the end of day we had collected over 8,000 lbs of paper which is nearly 4 tons!
The feedback was overwhelmingly positive because of the convenient location, good organization and quick shredding process. … (0 comments)

The 2010 Women’s Conference takes place on Monday and Tuesday of this week. Maria Shriver has taken a event started in 1985 by Gov. Deukmijian and in seven short years transformed it into an event that sells out within hours of ticket release. The list of participants reads like a who’s who of both Hollywood and Sacramento. I am betting that the discussion between Brown, Whitman and Schwarzenegger make headline news!
