#5StarREALTOR®   Investor Fix & Flip-Bidding Ends SOON!   #ChrisBJohnsonRealtor
In many markets across the country, the number of buyers searching for their dream homes outnumbers the number of homes for sale. This has led to a competitive marketplace where buyers often need to stand out. One way to show that you are serious about buying your dream home is to get pre-qualified or pre-approved for a mortgage before starting your search.
Even if you are not in an incredibly competitive market, understanding your budget will give you the confidence of knowing whether or not your dream home is within your reach.

The Seasons Are ChangingIt’s fall. School started again. My kids began their junior year in high school. Though they didn’t say anything about it and would certainly never admit it, I think they were glad at the change in their daily schedules that 6 hours of school brings. After all, school also brings their friends together, sports, and social events.
And parents’ schedules often change to accommodate school. You have to drive kids to school, to sports, and to the events. You have to make time to attend some of the school functions. You … (0 comments)

your top listing realtor with allison james estates homes elite: Ventura County Home Seller's A ‘Buyer’ in Hand is Worth 2 in the Bush - 07/26/17 10:28 AM
In today’s highly competitive seller’s market where there are more buyers than there are homes for them to buy, some sellers may feel like the ball is in their court.
And they would be right when it comes to choosing which offer to accept, the closing date, or even which improvements they are willing to make to their house prior to selling.
One thing to remember though, is that there is always a line that shouldn’t be crossed.
Interest rates can change, financing might not go through, the appraisal might not come back at the price that you have agreed to. These … (0 comments)

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)

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. I am NOT interested in Selling 100 or 200 homes a year because I would not be able to give each family the time, attention and energy they deserve. I would also lose touch with my past clients and would not be available to help where needed. I take pride in working personally and individually with each of … (0 comments)

Every year, Gallup surveys Americans to determine their choice for the best long-term investment. Respondents are given a choice between real estate, stocks/mutual funds, gold, savings accounts/CDs, or bonds.

Many Americans got some depressing news last week; either their tax return was not as large as they had hoped or, in some cases, they were told they owed additional money to either the Federal or State government or both. One way to save on taxes is to own your own home.
According to the Tax Policy Center’s Briefing Book -“A citizen's guide to the fascinating (though often complex) elements of the federal Tax System” - there are several tax advantages to homeownership.
Here are four items, and a quote on each, from the Briefing Book:

your top listing realtor with allison james estates homes elite: #ChrisBJohnsonRealtor: Millionaire to Millennials: Buy Now! - 03/28/17 08:30 AM
Self-made millionaire David Bach was quoted in a CNBC article explaining that "the single biggest mistake millennials are making" is not purchasing a home because buying real estate is "an escalator to wealth.”
Bach went on to explain:
"If millennials don't buy a home, their chances of actually having any wealth in this country are little to none. The average homeowner to this day is 38 times wealthier than a renter."
In his bestselling book, “The Automatic Millionaire,” Bach does the math:
"As a renter, you can easily spend half a million dollars or more on rent over the years ($1,500 a month for 30 years comes to $540,000), and in the end … (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.”

In the Los Angeles area, fewer than one in four households headed by persons in their 20s or early 30s — known demographically as “millenials” — can afford to buy the median-priced home, which now goes for just over $500,000.
Overall, just 34 percent of households in the L.A. metropolitan area can afford that same home. Which means that in the housing department, it only helps a little to be older … (4 comments)
