remax: Buying a home is more like dating then getting married! - 08/29/10 07:31 AM
Choosing a home to buy and live in is much more like dating then getting married or at least it should be!  Many buyers start off looking for the right home for the rest of their lives.  However, homes are sold regularly and most people live in the same home for less then five years.  It is really funny to see people buy their "last" home only to call within a few years looking for another home.
So, just like dating, find the right "now" fit that will make you happy at this time and keep in mind that this home … (1 comments)

remax: Location, Location, Location! You need to know what this really means! - 08/19/10 11:02 AM
The phrase is sometime totally misunderstood.  The most important factor when buying a home is the location by far.  However, the location is relative to the price range and community desired.  The best location is most desired but the best location with homes in the price range is more practical.  We can't all live in Beverly Hills or The Hamptons which would be highly desired locations.
The best location for the price is determined by several factors including:
Safety Quality of Schools Demand for the homes Commute Closeness to Freeway Also within the best community there are factors that make a … (2 comments)

remax: Double Dip in Home Sale seems inevitable! - 08/11/10 05:59 PM
All the signs are pointing to major trouble in real estate which is detrimental to pulling out of the worst recession since the great depression.  Failure in creating new jobs, the end of the federal tax credits for home buyers and a schizoid stock market have lead to extremely low levels of consumer confidence.
Meanwhile the inventories needed just a few short months ago are now starting to flood the real estate market.  These listing are now making the inventories rise and causing homes to stay on the market too long.  This excess inventory could lead to the much feared double … (8 comments)

remax: The Real Estate Market has Changed! - Tony Lewis * RE/MAX of Valencia - 07/19/10 06:49 AM
 Newsletter to Clients and Friends sent July 18, 2010
The pace of home sales has taken a breather.  The tax credits, end of the recession and stock market recovery lead to homes being sold with multiple offers as the reached the market.  The tax credit program ended April 31st, the stock market went south, the BP oil disaster all have lead to a major drop in consumer confidence.
This is a great time for those of you that were frustrated in your attempt to buy a home to give it another try.  It is also a great time for those of … (0 comments)

remax: Buying a Home Just Got Better! - Tony Lewis * RE/MAX of Valencia - 06/08/10 07:51 PM
June '10 Newsletter to my clients and friends!
 I'm a half full kind of guy!  The end of the Federal Tax Credit along with the combination of the Stock Market Dip & European Crisis has opened the door for Buyers to continue to take advantage of extremely low home prices along with Historically Low Interest Rates.  I have been updated that there should be a short term lull as the tax incentives run out.  Expectations are that the home sales will continue to recover without need for any additional stimulation.  Homes sales are expected to increase in the second half … (0 comments)

remax: Buying a home should not be this difficult! - 05/19/10 01:01 PM
Buyers and I am referring to the buyers that have done everything asked of them including get loan approval, showing proof of funds and proving their ability to buy and motivation to close escrow on time are being abused in today's real estate market. 
The shortest distance to the real estate recovery and end of this horrendous recession lies squarly on the shoulders of buyers that plan on moving into their homes and maintain it.  Investors and flippers have a role to play but remember the market tumbled when these same investors and flippers could no longer turn a profit.  When … (3 comments)

remax: Riding the bottom is rough on all of us! - 08/12/09 06:32 PM
The collapse of the real estate market began in October of 2005.  The peak of the market in regards to the peak pricing didn't get reached until the middle of 2006. Currently any home bought before early 2003 is worth less than it was when it was purchased.  Many people were expecting and welcoming the collapse of the real estate bubble not realizing that this industry feeds every other industry directly or indirectly in the United States of America.  So indirectly our real estate crash is responsible for the economic turmoil throughout the world.
I have constantly state that buying a … (3 comments)
