fresno real estate: Landlords Have a NEW Competitor - THE NEW FREDDIE MAC RENT BACK PROGRAM - 01/30/09 04:25 AM
I just read this article: Freddie Mac to rent foreclosed properties AMAZING!  It's totally understandable that they would take this route.  I showed a house on Tuesday that was only a couple of years old and theives had taken the stove and hood, oven and microwave, dishwasher and cabinets.  It's unreal.  When homes are looted the banks can't resell them with typical financing (ala FHA) unless they meet basic living standards.  If they don't, they sell them at a discount to investors for cash, who either fix them up and rent them out or resell them.
The problem is investors who … (1 comments)

fresno real estate: I'll Let You Be The Judge.... - 12/05/08 02:52 AM
After reading Rich Jacobson's blog about the "false fronts" that some Realtors© put forward I decided to post a picture taken of me taken the other day down by the San Joaquin River.  We had relatives here for thanksgiving and we decided to take the kids down to the river to skip rocks and get some energy out. 
Since I almost always have my camera with me the relatives asked that I shoot some pictures of them.   After I took pictures of them I thought "what the heck" I might as well get a picture of myself.  So here is a … (7 comments)

fresno real estate: Empire State Building Stolen in 90 Minutes... - 12/02/08 05:00 PM
THIS IS A MUST READ ARTICLE describing how the Daily News stole the Empire State Building in 90 minutes using forged documents.  It highlights the huge potential for thieves to take advantage of a system that does no verification of information. 
I believe that in the not too distant future we will see an entire industry developed to make sure your "REAL PROPERTY" is not stolen or tampered with, much like what we have today to protect ourselves from identity theft.
I had a gentleman contact me who wanted to sell some property he had and I looked it up on … (2 comments)

fresno real estate: Homestyles in Fresno Vary Depending on the Neighborhood - 10/09/07 06:45 PM
The other day my wife and i were out looking at some Gary McDonald Homes and there was one in particular we really liked that was already sold ( for 2.1 million ). These are the homes that are being built right along the golf course. I think the name of the subdivision is Country Club At The Fort. NO, we aren't thinking of moving there: couldn't if we wanted to; wouldn't if we could. I wouldn't be able to afford the taxes and utilities bills on a 2.1 million dollar home, let alone the mortgage. Today I had some business … (5 comments)
