realtor: Will Rising Interest Rates Crash the Real Estate Market? - 05/14/22 11:44 PM
​​Dear Clients, Family & Friends,
We are in the midst of run-away inflation.  The Fed is determined to slow it down by steadily increasing interest rates.  Higher rates will lower the amount of a mortgage loan a buyer will be able to borrow.  This may not lower demand but increase bidding wars on lower priced homes.  My experience from the past shows that it will take several months or even a year for sellers to begin to lower their list price significantly.  
This is a time that a homeowner thinking of selling needs a seasoned, professional Realtor more than ever.  A homeowner … (0 comments)

realtor: Buy, Sell or Hold Real Estate Spring or Summer 2022 - 03/28/22 10:30 PM
Dear Friends, Family & Clients,
Home affordability in Los Angeles County has plummeted to about twenty percent.  You’ve heard the saying; “History Repeats Itself” well we should all be aware of what happened the last time prices rose at these rates for three years in a row.  Home prices rose twenty-eight percent in 2006, twenty-two percent in 2007 and eighteen percent in 2008.  This was followed by a nearly fifty percent drop in prices in many communities in the subsequent years.
Honesty has been a hallmark of our real estate career and our advice has always been based upon the truth and serving … (3 comments)

​​Friends, Family & Clients,
We haven't seen home prices rise at these unrealistic levels since back in 2004 - 2006 when home prices went up 22% 28% & 18%.  Home prices in Valencia, Stevenson Ranch, Saugus and throughout the Santa Clarita Valley have risen between 20% to as much as 33% in just the past twelve months.  Congress is attempting to approve a stimulus package as high as 3.5 Trillion Dollars.  This is a two headed monster for homeowners and those hoping to buy a home in the future.  This influx of cash to the economy could lead to inflation levels not … (4 comments)

realtor: Essential Information on a Real Estate Zoom Meeting - 09/03/21 12:16 PM
A Realtor is a licensed professional with many duties and obligations including being a Fiduciary.  Serving their clients is the most important part of this occupation.  Avoiding being sued is also close to the top as well.
Disclosures are the leading cause of lawsuits in a real estate transaction.  There are many required disclosures given to a buyer and seller of a property.  Failure to disclose is by far the leading cause of lawsuits and court cases.  The parties that must, by law, disclose information during a transaction include the buyer, seller, listing agent, selling agent, buyer's broker and seller's broker.  Failure … (6 comments)

What a sad year for all of us. We have been forced to live life as if we were a third world nation. Masks, home-bound, no indoor eating at restaurants, small businesses going bankrupt, many businesses hanging on by a thread, hospitalizations and loss of life is hurting our American Spirit. The Stock Market and Real Estate Market remain strong.

realtor: Election 2020 Is it time to sell? - Summit Real Estate Group - 07/23/20 09:47 AM
Dear Family, Friends & Clients,​​
There are three main reasons that a home doesn’t sell within three months at this time. Two are avoidable and I can solve the third one. The number one reason by far is not listing the home at a price that will bring in the maximum number of highly qualified buyers. The second is not having a quality Virtual Tour and Photos. The third is not hiring an Experienced, Knowledgeable, Professional Local Realtor. We have been listing and selling homes since 1996. We know that reaching our fellow Realtors is the key to bringing in the most … (6 comments)

realtor: Do you realize that we can not avoid going into a recession? - 03/11/20 04:04 PM
It is already too late to avoid a worldwide recession.  Too many jobs have been lost, events cancelled, paychecks missed, mortgage paymense unpaid and net worth devastated.  Talk of a cure being at least a year ago has shattered consumer confidence.
This post is not meat to create fear but prepare you for a rough ride ahead.  Protect your finances.  Be careful on your spending and warn your friends, neighbors and family of impending turmoil.
