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.

 
The current environment for housing in California is being routinely referred to as a crisis. Many consider it a bubble and anticipate the possibility of another crash.

For California, the “housing crisis” … (30 comments)

carlsbad luxury single family homes for sale: Title Commitment: Are you Properly Representing Your Buyers? - 04/26/17 08:03 AM
MANY in the general public do not understand Title Insurance. Why the need for it and who pays for it, let alone, what it really is. Before the title insurance is ever issued there is a much more important document that must be reviewed  -the Title Commitment.
 
THE title commitment is issued prior to closing the transaction and it is reviewed by the buyer. Per the sales contract, the buyer has a set period for review of the title commitment and to object to any exceptions or issues that might render the title unmarketable. Found within the title commitment are the names … (80 comments)

carlsbad luxury single family homes for sale: DO REAL ESTATE PHOTOGRAPHS MISLEAD? - 04/10/17 10:24 AM
The quick answer:  They Can!
 
 
Trained in Professional Landscape Photography and having applied my critical ‘eye’ in how best to convey the story about the specific home being photographed, I know that keeping up-to-date with technology and the reaction of the public is critical for success.
Often seen in real estate photographs are stunning homes that could only be found in a far-distant paradise, yet; the listing agent advertises that this home is in my neighborhood.
How can this be?
I know my neighborhood and know of no home as breathtaking within miles!
So I drive to the listing and behold this ‘palace’ … (188 comments)

So my question to you is; Will this change your internet marketing plans for the future? And, can you really attribute any sales activity directly to your Facebook social marketing activity?
If you can’t, then why buy into this new wave of revenue feeding, and just resort to other venues like, Linked In and Pay-per-Click where the results are traceable and you can gather impact reports to fine tune your marketing … (21 comments)
