Work related deductions are great for reducing the amount you owe to Uncle Sam at the end of the year, but it may reduce your qualifying strength. Many will argue that the amount on a W2 is true income and i agree, but  FHA, lenders, and their investors collectively are requiring that the job related expenses of the previous 2 years be deducted from the overall income. This can be detrimental depending on how much you decide to write off every year. For example true story, a correctional officer writes off $20,000 for uniforms, gun holster, cell phone expense, etc... that $20,000 must be deducted from his $50,000 income. That leaves him with $30,000 to use for qualifying purposes and it doesn't take a mathematician to tell you that they will not qualify for as much home as they once ho...

I truly enjoy hosting open houses at homes like one at 9335 Friant Street in Rancho Cucamonga. The house is very clean and has been well maintained and offers many features attractive to buyers - open spaces, large closets, comfortable kitchen, sparkling pool and spa, covered patio, private backyard. Those things are all very important, but what sets the house apart to me is the view from the second story. Buyers focused on the size of four bedrooms and the walk-in closets in three of them may not take time to pull back the drapes or peek through the blinds to see the outside world.  But as they prepare to descend the stairs, they can't help but notice the large window illuminating the stairway and framing the outside world. For me, the ever-changing view of the mountains out that wind...

Downsizing a Home Requires Cutting Contents, too (edit/delete) I ran across this article this morning and thought I would share it as I am one of these people looking at downsizing and the daunghnting task of "re-structuring" the home. Its painful to say the least! Happy reading.   RISMEDIA, January 23, 2009-(MCT)-The kids have moved out. Those three bedrooms are looking awfully lonely. That spacious backyard that once served as a barbecue pit/football field/volleyball court now looks like a breeding ground for weeds, not to mention back-breaking acreage during mowing season. You want to move to something smaller, but the task seems overwhelming. There’s a basement full of boxes, a garage stuffed with unused toys and rusting machinery. Let the experts help you get moving.

To convert dreams into reality utilizing Real Estate opportunities as our vehicle and to bring out the best in everyone I have an opportunity of meeting. ...
