Before city streets and housing tracts, the land beneath Rancho Cucamonga was covered in vineyards and orchards. And before THAT, in 1860, John Rains built a brick home in the middle of his vast rancho. The Rains House still stands at 8810 Hemlock Street, just off Vineyard Avenue north of Foothill Boulevard. In the 1970s, restoration began and Casa de Rancho Cucamonga became a historic site of the San Bernardino County Museum.  On Saturday, Dec.6, 2008, the public will be welcomed at an annual festive open house from 3 to 8 p.m.  The Alta Loma High School Chamber Singers and Tapia Gold, led by Bob Fox, are scheduled to perform as guests tour the lavishly decorated home and enjoy hot cider and ginger molasses cookies, along with a bit of Rancho Cucamonga lore.  Suggested donations are $3...

The number of foreclosure postings dropped dramatically in September, but not because there are fewer homeowners in distress. Instead, the numbers are down because of a new law requiring lenders to contact homeowners and then wait 30 days before filing foreclosure notices. The goal is to encourage loan modifications that enable homeowners to stay in their home. A total of 883 Rancho Cucamonga properties were in the foreclosure process on Oct. 19, 2008, according to reports compiled from county records for the First American CoreLogic database.

There were 4,775 homes for sale in the 10 cities in my service area on Sunday, Oct. 5, according to the local Multiple Listing Service. While that's a daunting number to home buyers and home sellers alike - for different reasons - it is less than 2 percent of the number of existing houses in Chino, Claremont, Fontana, La Verne, Montclair, Ontario, Pomona, Rancho Cucamonga, San Dimas and Upland. Since the source of the number of houses was the 2000 census, and most communities saw a boom in construction during the first half of the decade, the actual percentage is even lower. Fontana has seen home prices plummet since the giddy "Build, Build, Build" years shortly after 2000, when northern Fontana homes and home prices shot skyward. Based on current listings and the number of homes report...

Recently Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac issued guidelines with the intent to stop buyers from conducting a "buy and bail" strategy, which applied to ALL Conventional loans.  A "buy and bail" strategy is when a buyer purchases a new home using their current residence as a "rental property" to qualify for the new mortgage, with the intent of never leasing out their home and letting it go into foreclosure.  Up until Thursday 9/18, FHA had not adopted any of the policies issued by Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac.  But as of Friday September 19th, HUD issued new guidelines regarding these transactions and has provided a Mortgagee Letter with some of the changes to FHA loans.  There are only two exceptions in order for the borrower to defray the payments on their primary residence if it is being converted...

Keeping your buyers informed of the steps to purchasing REO properties and short-sale properties, will actually lead a buyer to purchase. REO properties are a hot commodity. They come on the market at an excellent price, and tend to fly off within the week, pending sale. I've seen difficulty with some agents being able to convince their buyers to put an offer in on the spot. For example: the buyer goes out looking at properties, they find one they really like, and they decide to think on it for the next couple of days. Next thing you know, you are pulling up the listing to discuss placing an offer, and the property is pending sale. This means another round. Another round of looking, another round of trying to find that perfect house, more gas... Its starts with educating your buyers on ...

Model yourself. . . Victoria GardensIts amazing how much Victoria Gardens itself, has been such a beautiful part of our community. It is the place that we all call home. The Victoria Gardens mall itself is an amazing place. Absolutely beautiful, it makes me feel like I am walking in a real-life fairy tale. It is somewhere I am proud to take my family, and love to hang out, work on my laptop and grad a cup of coffee. Victoria Gardens has become more than a mall, it is the basis of our community. It is very obvious that we take pride in our community. The REO's (bank owned properties) in our community, are very well taken care of. Even the banks realize the importance of keeping this a beautiful place to live. I am very active in Real Estate here in Rancho Cucamonga, and very knowledgeabl...
