remax: Slamming the Lower Income Earners & Raising Interest Rates - 12/05/15 01:52 AM
Many economists are calling for interest rates to rise stating that higher interest rates are the sign of a healthy economy.  This may be true but it will surely punish the lower middle class and lower class income earners.  The higher interest rates will prevent those with limited income from qualifying for a mortgage.  The affect will be to give those with a healthier income the ability to buy without competition and thus taking advantage of higher interest rates.  The affects of higher interest rates won't stop there either.  Those impacted will be unable to make purchases that would be deemed … (1 comments)

remax: Master-Planned Community of Newhall Ranch on Hold - 12/01/15 01:23 AM
The proposed Master-Plan Community of Newhall Ranch is a Brand New community being proposed by former Valencia, Ca. builder Newhall Land and Farm and current Owner Lennar Corporation.  Their EIR Plans were approved in 2010.  There is a new challenge and the review of the EIR and the project is being delayed.   Fear is that it may now take until 2020 for final approval.  Opponents of the project must be rejoicing.  The impact of this new community could adversely affect traffic in the Santa Clarita Valley.  The Santa Clarita Valley was land locked during the 1994 earthquake due to the closure … (3 comments)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  This is another great year to give thank at this time of year.  We are one more year removed from the start of the most horrendous economy since the Depression of 1929.  The world seems to be uniting finally against a common enemy called ISIS or ISIL.  There is a calm and stability in the stock market. Home prices have risen to end the threat of foreclosure for the vast majority.  Homes are selling at a steady pace and interest rates are far below what would be considered a normal or stable percentage rate.  Dani and I are available during … (2 comments)

remax: Down Payment Protection? No way, but it's true. - 11/12/15 11:03 AM
Housing Wire Mortgage Opportunity  Forecast gave 4 reasons why 2016 will be a good year to purchase a home.  Reason number 4 has been cut & pasted from this forecast.  This will be a game changer once implemented.
4. Down payment protection will be available
Writing a check for a down payment on a home is often one of the largest investments someone will make. Down payment protection is a new option that can give modern homebuyers the flexibility they need to more confidently and securely buy a home. When homebuyers put less than 20% down at closing, this kind of coverage protects their down … (2 comments)

remax: No, not everyone should own a home. - 10/19/15 01:18 PM
Home Ownership is not for everyone.  There are many reasons to rent or live with someone rather than owning a home.  Renting makes sense if you are not sure you will have your job for the long run or even sure if you like working there.  Renting makes sense as well if you are new to a community and don't know yet if this is the place you would like to live for the next five or more years.  Renting also seems to make sense if you don't want to take on long term debt or maintain a home inside and … (2 comments)

remax: A Tip to those start off in their new career from a seasoned veteran - 10/18/15 02:39 AM
The best advice for anyone in the real estate industry and perhaps it works for most others is to nurture your image with your fellow professions in the industry. Clients, Buyers and Seller change regularly but the people in the industry can remain for the next 20 or 30 years. Your reputation with these people will live and either carry you through tough times or haunt you for the length of your career.
We have been through one of the worst downturns that real estate and our nations economy has ever been forced to endure. The Realtors, Lenders, Title Reps, Escrow Officers, … (5 comments)

remax: "Halloween 2015" Los Angeles, Southern California & Ventura Events - 10/06/15 04:12 AM

Dear Clients & Friends,
Halloween - Evolving from the ancient Celtic holiday of Samhain, modern Halloween has become less about literal ghosts and ghouls and more about costumes and candy. The Celts used the day to mark the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter, and also believed that this transition between the seasons was a bridge to the world of the dead.  Over the millennia the holiday transitioned from a somber pagan ritual to a day of merriment, costumes, parades and sweet treats for children and adults.

There couldn't have been better news for the struggling middle class than we heard on Friday.  The Fed has decided to hold interest rates and will not raise them for now.  This is incredible news for those with adjustable interest rates, home owners thinking of selling and of course those sitting on the fence that need an added incentive to get off the fence and purchase a home.

I'm writing this blog post to reach out to Realtors that should hear the other side of the coin.  We, as Realtors, all have many things in common.  One of them is time management.  We have limited numbers of hours to spend with our clients and there are days in which we have back to back appointments.
There are a few local agents that refuse to allow another agent in the home to show it while they are showing it to their clients.  They sure look like a hero to their client when they explain to them that this is their private … (13 comments)
