ventura real estate: Ventura Strawberry Festival 2024 - 05/05/24 05:04 PM
May 20th is National Pick Strawberries Day. We learned a few interesting facts about the strawberry that we would love to share. For example, did you know that the strawberry is actually part of the rose family? (The Rosacaeae family to be precise.) A cup of strawberries contains more Vitamin C than a medium orange. California grows approximately 80% of all strawberries produced in the entire United States. So, it makes sense that the Ventura Strawberry Festival takes place later this month.

ventura real estate: FHA Loan Explained - 01/14/24 05:18 PM
Lenders offer a variety of loans to choose from when purchasing a Ventura home. The three most common loans are conventional, VA, and FHA. For credit-challenged buyers, an FHA loan may be their most viable option.
FHA Loan ExplainedGovernment Backed LoanThese loans are insured by the government. However, the government does not, in fact, actually issue any money for loans. What does that mean? Well with conventional loans, the lender assumes all of the risk. But with government-backed loans, the lender receives protection in case the buyer defaults on their loan. That is why their terms tend to favor those home buyers … (3 comments)

In Scotland, one way to celebrate the culture is through sport. Stateside, we celebrate with them through the Seaside Highland Games & Scottish Festival 2023 right here in Ventura.
