california: Bankers Crunch The Numbers -- Then CRUNCH THE HOUSES - 05/05/09 10:37 AM
Here's the latest on the California Housing Crunch.  Bankrupt builders are leaving their creditors with nearly finished homes.  The banks, already upside down in the deals no they can never recoup their losses so the demolish the homes as you see in this video below.
Unfortunately the demolition makes sense because the besides finishing the homes the banks would likely be obligated to complete the streets, sidewalks, curbs, gutters, and all the rest of the neighborhood infrastructure.  Very sad, especially in light how many people don't have a proper roof over their head.

california: Fresno Ca Real Estate Market Bleet - 04/28/09 05:16 PM
Was busy doing showings this afternoon in an area where sales have been brisk.  The volume of REOs in this particular neighborhood has been so high that I noticed prices drop 10% in a matter of about 2 or 3 months.  I noticed a lot of homes with non-mls lock boxes --- meaning that the homes are being foreclosed on and will be coming to market soon. 
Looks like another wave of homes is set to hit the market soon.  I spoke with my insurance agent today who told me there were 6 pages of NODs  (Notice of Default) in the … (0 comments)

california: Interesting Stats on California Real Estate Licensing - 09/12/08 05:07 AM

* State of California only * 
I sold a home last year and represented the Buyer. The seller's provided a 2 year roof certificate from a contractor recommended by her broker. Some problems developed with the roof and I contacted the Contractor (or so I thought) and he said that the Contractor under which the certificate was written was no longer in business but that he was covering all certificates written and making good on them.
