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.

In today’s housing market, where supply is very low and demand is very high, home values are increasing rapidly. Many experts are projecting that home values could appreciate … (0 comments)

“Sales have trended mostly sideways for eight consecutive years,” said Madeline Schnapp, Director of Economic Research for PropertyRadar. “While sales volumes appear to have hit a ceiling, prices continue to reach new heights. Lack of inventory, near record low mortgage interest rates, and increase in demand due to California’s continued economic vitality are pushing prices higher.”

Chris B Johnson, REALTOR®, SFR®, CDPE®, CHS®
We’ve heard predictions both ways on what the housing market will look like for the rest of 2016: On one hand, some say the tight inventory combined with home price appreciation and slow wage growth will hamper affordability. Others are forecasting improvements in inventory and wage growth that will lead to a more robust housing market. What do you think home buying will look like for the rest of this year?
That's a very good question. You're actually asking it at the right time because I think we are about to get into the spring selling … (0 comments)

the best short sale agent in ventura county: Do Interest Rates Have The Biggest Effect On Affordability ? - 03/29/16 11:24 AM
Chris B Johnson, REALTOR®, SFR®, CDPE®, CHS®
One of the most important life goals for millennials across the country is home ownership. They crave a sense of community and a place where they truly belong.

Woke up at about 4:00 am to the smell of very nasty smoke, actually my wife woke up and had to nudge me a few times before the neuron's started to fire.
Smelled like burning plastic. The smoke detectors were not going off. They only seem to go off when there is no smoke. Walked around the upstairs and could not find anything. Then walked downstairs and saw a think layer of smoke hovering on the kitchen ceiling. 
It appears our built in microwave/convection oven was melting from the inside!
I quickly unplugged it, opened all the windows and turned on the … (4 comments)

 Congress is trying to tax homebuyers to pay for the new transportation bill by  creating a new mortgage tax and disguising it as a “fee.” But it’s a tax, pure  and simple.
 The Senate recently passed a long-term transportation funding bill, and  included a new tax on mortgages to pay for it, calling it a “fee.”  This "fee" for … (2 comments)
