Prop 13:  
            Under proposition 13, real property is reappraised only when a change-in-ownership occurs, or when new construction takes place. Generally, a change in ownership is a sale or transfer property, while new construction is any improvement to property that is not considered normal maintenance.  Except for these two instances, property assessments cannot be increased by more than 2% annually.
Prop 8:  
            Due to the dire market conditions within the County of Riverside, the Assessor's office has begun to review the value of properties purchased within the last year in an effort to determine if value reductions are warranted under Proposition 8.

collette lee: Home Ownership One Topic In the State of the Union… - 03/10/08 10:17 AM
Listening to President Bush's last State of the Union address, he was prepared for the topic of foreclosures and home ownership because every day in the media those remain very "HOT" topics. He did address that topic because so many people are affected. If you do some research you will find out that the House approved two measures this past Tuesday, which are designed to boost the ailing housing market as part of the economic stimulus package.
This is one of those times where there does not appear to be a light at the end of the tunnel. The House approved … (2 comments)

By entering your county either by area code or name and pressing send (yes, its as easy as that) your loan information can be revealed.
In Riverside, a 4-member family could potentially receive a loan up to $961,550.  Incredible right?!? So just check it out yourself and become informed of your potential.

collette lee: Let's Simplify Foreclosure - 01/17/08 10:29 AM
What is Foreclosure?
The foreclosure process enables a lender to recover the amount owed on a defaulted loan. The lender has the option of selling the property or repossessing the property.
The beginning of a foreclosure process is initiated when a borrower defaults on mortgage payments. The lender then files a Notice of Default or Lis Pendens. Some of the ways a foreclosure process may end are:
1.  The borrower pays off the default amount during the pre-foreclosure perio determined by state law.
2.  The borrower sells the property to a third party during the pre-foreclosure period. The borrower is able then … (0 comments)

Let me put some boom in it!  If only all noise was good noise.
This past November Riverside officials opposed DHL's new addition of an international jumbo jet at March Air Force Base, due to neighborhoods continuing to be awakened by the company's early morning departures.
DHL's international flights from Asia have brought growth to Riverside's increasing international trade and jobs to the West Coast hub.   DHL alone has created over 450 jobs, most of which are part-time package handlers with an average job earning of $10.74 an hour.
There have been recent steps taken to reduce the noise at 3 a.m. by … (2 comments)

Why A Woman?
Previous studies have shown women owned (non-family) businesses perform at a lower level of performance than those owned by men.  However, in a study conducted by the Center for Women's Leadership at Babson College & Mass Mutual (2003), family businesses led by women get better financial results than family businesses led by men.  Female led firms employed significantly less workers to obtain the same amount of sales as men owned family firms, and were reported to be 1.7 times more productive.  Women owned businesses were shown to have 40% lower rate of family members leaving the business, and were … (1 comments)

Try not to become a man of success but a man of value.Albert Einstein
In a busy world today everyone wants to be rich or aspire to having more, but have some people forgotten that sometimes success is based on your values and morals?
This past weekend I saw a man drop money while he was fumbling around in his pocket. Well, being the karma believing person that I am I started walking over to the money to return it to its rightful owner.  However, someone beat me to the punch, but instead of returning it, they placed it into their own pocket.  … (1 comments)
