california: Home Prices Dropped more dramatically than you think, see the chart! - 03/04/13 12:44 PM
The real estate bubble created from 1997 to July 2006 was unprecedented.  The current rise in prices looks to surpass this recent history.  There are no simple answers.  The only ways to slow down this price escalation is to either raise interest rates or stop FHA & VA Financing and require larger down payments.  Congress has also suggested taking away the tax benefits.  The cure is worse than the illness.

california: Rising California Home Prices leads to Less Qualified Buyers! - 02/28/13 02:52 AM
C.A.R. reports 4th quarter 2012 housing affordability
For release:
February 25, 2013

california: Seller’s Market but Buyers have the most to gain! - 01/19/13 09:09 AM
Dear Clients, Friends & Fellow Realtors,
This is the time to make hard decisions that will affect your financial future.  “Don’t cry over spilled milk” There is no crystal ball so timing the bottom of the market was just a guess at best.  Home prices began one year ago.   No one could have been sure of this until enough times had past.
We are now in the midst of a full blown Seller’s Market.  The reasons for the turn-around are plentiful.  Jobs are coming back, banks have chosen to work with home owners in default rather than foreclose, consumer confidence is … (0 comments)

california: Don’t sell your home now unless… - 01/06/13 01:02 PM
Don’t sell your home now unless…
Abracadabra… It’s now a Seller’s Market!
One of the best tools for making a decision is called the Ben Franklin System.  The scenario is you make two lists.  On one side you list the positive reasons and on the second list you list the negative side.
Check out the Ben Franklin List for “Whether to Sell Your home at this time”
Reason to sell your home now:
The Best Reason to sell now is to “Avoid a Foreclosure”  A Foreclosure never leave your permanent record.  Selling by Short Sale takes a lot of paperwork and … (1 comments)

Dear Friends, Clients & Fellow Realtors,
Dani & I have lived in the Valencia area since 1980.  Our two daughters were born and raised in this incredible community.  Halloween has been special to us as parents!  It was fun seeing their costumes and sending pictures to family.  It was also special seeing their response to other kids.  Halloween was an incredible learning experience and teaching time.  It was a time to teach the difference between make believe and reality.  Year after year our daughters looked forward to this annual event.  Choosing their own costumes and trick or treating with friends was … (2 comments)

california: Short Sales fail to live up to the hype! Wake up lenders! - 07/29/10 07:47 PM
A Short Sale occurs when a home owner is unable to keep up the mortgage payments and must sell or lose their home to a foreclosure.  The home owners is considered upside down.  The Lender has the option  to allow the home owner sell the home and the Lender will pay all of the closing costs and accept the net proceeds from the sale as payment in full.  This helps the seller by allowing them to avoid a foreclosure on they record. This helps the Lender by allowing them to sell the home quicker and reinvest the proceeds sooner. This helps … (3 comments)

Many home buyers start their search for a home when they are "Ready!"  The next thing many will do is start looking at homes.  They will attend Open Houses or search the Web for homes that fit their interest as far as location, number of bedrooms, maybe have a pool and definitely the most desirable looks they can find.  The are now ready to "Fire!"

california: The heck with the Stock Market, Invest in a home! - 05/08/10 09:14 PM
It is the perfect time to pull money out of the stock market and invest in the real estate market!  The Stock Market bottomed out then skyrocketed.  Home prices are down about the same percentage at the stock market when it hit the bottom.  This is the time to invest in real estate, take advantage of the tremendous write offs and ride the market back to the new peak!
Unlike stocks, real estate has real value.  There will always be a need for rental properties and there is no better way to protect the future!  Buy a home and when you … (4 comments)
