simi valley: Do Your Future Plans Include a Move? You Should Be Listing Now! - 08/02/17 03:04 PM
   
Your home is probably the biggest asset you own. This is why you should hire a professional to guide you through all your real estate transactions. My goal is to help 24 to 28 families each year either buy or sell a home.
 
Are you an empty-nester? Do you want to retire where you are, or does a vacation destination sound more your style? Are you close to retirement and not ready to move yet, but living in a home that is too big in size and maintenance needs?
How can you line up your current needs with your goals and … (0 comments)

simi valley: El aumento de los precios de la vivienda significa buenas noticias para los propietarios - 07/25/17 02:46 PM
El aumento de los precios de la vivienda significa buenas noticias para los propietarios  25 25UTC julio 25UTC 2017  For Sellers, Move-Up Buyers, Pricing   Recientemente ha habido muchas conversaciones sobre los precios de las viviendas y si están acelerando demasiado rápido. Como mencionamos antes, en algunas áreas del país, la oferta de los vendedores (las casas para la venta) no pueden mantenerse con el número de compradores buscando por una casa, lo que está causando el aumento en los precios.
 
La buena noticia sobre el aumento de los precios, sin embargo, es que según el Homeowner Equity Report de CoreLogic, el hogar estadounidense promedio gano más … (0 comments)

simi valley: Nothing Is Moving? Has Commerce Come To A Halt ? - 01/12/16 03:50 AM
Chris B Johnson, REALTOR®, SFR®, CDPE®, CHS®
Interesting If True....
Commerce between Europe and North America has literally come to a halt. For the first time in known history, not one cargo ship is in-transit in the North Atlantic between Europe and North America. All of them (hundreds) are either anchored offshore or in-port. NOTHING is moving. This has never happened before. It is a horrific economic sign; proof that commerce is literally stopped.
If true, this would be catastrophic for world trade. Even if it’s not true, shipping is still nearly dead in the water according to other indices.  The Baltic Dry … (2 comments)

simi valley: Boomerang Buyers, They Are Back, Or Are They?? - 06/09/15 02:04 AM
By Chris B Johnson Realtor,  It's been about nine years since the start of the U.S. foreclosure crisis, which peaked at 7.7 million houses in foreclosure in 2012.
With the passage of the years, once-distressed homeowners with restored credit are reentering the housing market, even though damaged credit profiles and lender rules will greatly restrict the overall share of those eligible to buy.
According to the National Association of Realtors, California, Florida, and Arizona, where the foreclosure crisis started, are expected to have the largest share of return buyers within the next decade.
Nearly a million of those former owners already … (2 comments)

simi valley: Simi Valley Short Sale-Buying beats renting in most of Ventura County - 04/30/14 09:54 AM
By Chris B Johnson Realtor, 
  In Simi Valley, and all of Ventura County, rents keep rising, and mortgage interest rates remain very low, which is helping to skew the rent vs. buy decision toward buying for those who can afford it.   Many renters may ask themselves why renew a lease, when you can break even on the same home in less time in many areas.    Your Simi Valley Short Sale Specialist knows that some renters still have to overcome significant hurdles before they can pull the trigger on homeownership.

simi valley: 17% Of Homes Are Under Water, Is Your Ventura County Home One Of Them? - 04/17/14 11:42 AM
 
  By Chris B Johnson Realtor, Ventura County, CA
In the fourth quarter of 2013, 9.3 million residential properties representing 19% of all properties with a mortgage were seriously underwater, and in the first quarter of 2013 10.9 million residential properties representing 26% of all properties with a mortgage were seriously underwater.
