This was a great articl that I wanted to share with everyone. There are a lot of great tips. Newly divorced Britney Spears recently unloaded her seven-bedroom house in Malibu for $12 million -- $1.5 million less than the asking price -- after nine months on the market. On July 30, Paris Hilton put her Spanish-style house in Hollywood Hills, built in 1926, for $4.25 million. She paid close to $3 million for the house in November 2004. Will she get her asking price? If celebrities can't seem to get what they want for their houses, how are the rest of the (1 comments)
simi valley properties: Tips to Avoid the "Bad Apples" of Real Estate - 09/27/07 12:14 AM
Here is a great article I ran across with a lot of great tips for buyers. Real estate agents can be your strongest allies in the biggest financial transaction of your life. How do you make sure to avoid any "bad apples?" Bad apples exist in every industry -- and real estate is not immune. But in an industry where commissions are earned by hard work and reputation, the bad apples don't keep for very long. Buying a home is the largest financial commitment a person will make. This isn't the time to worry about being swindled by the person who is (0 comments)

simi valley properties: Should you buy a home in todays market? - 09/26/07 06:48 PM
I thought this article I came across, would answer a lot of questions you may have. Before we start, let us give you one reason to not buy a new home right now. How long do you intend to live there? A rule of thumb is that it rarely makes sense to buy if you expect to move within two years. That's because when you do sell, there are costs associated with selling. We're not just talking about sales commissions to the buying and selling real estate brokers. Most owners rely on home appreciation to pay those costs and to provide the down payment (0 comments)
simi valley properties: Why search for a Realtor Anyway? - 09/26/07 06:45 PM
Another great article I came across I wanted to share! Finding Your Realtor by "Accident": When someone decides it is time to sell their home, they interview several Realtors from different companies to determine which one is best for them. They want someone who will represent them and someone they feel will do an effective job at marketing their home. However, when someone decides to buy a home, they usually end up with their Realtor through sheer accident. Why don't homebuyers search for a Realtor the same way that homesellers do? Instead, homebuyers usually end up with a Realtor as a result of answering (0 comments)
