  For California home-owners who owe more on their home than the home is currently worth, a short sale is an effective procedure to sell your home and have the deficiency (the remaining debt) wiped-out.  In the past few years, many Californians have short sold their under-water homes, off loaded their mortgage debt, and have even gone on to buy better homes at today’s affordable prices. However, in recent months, many real estate professionals have observed a decline in the number of short sales compared to the volume of short sales closed in the last 3 years.  This shift can be attributed to (i) successful modification of many mortgages, (ii) a new trend of increasing property values, and (iii) the large volume of short sales that have already been completed by distressed home-owners. ...

This is the most important election in our history.   Just two more days! We must vote if we want that our voice be heard, if we want to recover the American dream  we should never put our freedom at risk   Stay informed seek and speak the truth and get the vote out.   2012 is the year of the change. Many predictions about the end of the world I personally don’t believe that this is the year that we will witness the end of the world. It’s better to say that we will be witness to the beginning of a new era.   The year that will change the life of generations to come.   Now, I don’t want to mention any particular Party. I know the party and people I am voting for.   What I am asking you is to get out the vote and exercise your right. You probably have your own party preference and the sit...

On Saturday, December 17, 2011, I hosted an open house on 21812 Lopez Street, Woodland Hills, California 91364.  It was a single family detached residential, 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home, 1,843 square feet (per tax assessor's data), situated on a hill in a quiet cul-de-sac area, listed at $409,000, a few blocks west of Topanga Canyon Boulevard, MLS number F11155191.  I would like to thank the listing agent for allowing me to do the open house.  Although it's the holiday season, buyers are including house hunting in their schedule.  After strategically placing my signs on the streets, I decided to stop in at the Starbucks Cafe located at Dumetz and Topanga Canyon Boulevard.  It's situated in a small strip mall, with a few mom and pop shops.  When I walked in the store, I saw that many folk...

The question that everyone wants to know is: "Will the price of homes in California continue to fall". Well, there's really not a definite answer. Experts and economists will tell you to refer to the real estate cycle, and others will tell you to watch the market, follow politics and don't hold your breath. Many will say that it's going to remain flat in 2012, and others will say that there will be another decline before there's a rebound in the real estate market. The truth of the matter is, even if the price of homes continue to drop, the mortgage interest rates need to stay low in order for you to have manageable mortgage payments. And if you are a distressed homeowner, there are reports that there's a hold on foreclosures and evictions throughout the holidays. Short sales are a way ...

People have different reasons for why they rent versus buying a home. One could simply be that their credit is not up to par, and they don't have job stability. Another reason could be that they are simply afraid of buying a home in this economy, or they just don't want that responsibility right now. Whatever the reason is, you should do some research on your own and find out how much money you are saving or losing by renting a home. You may find out that with a down payment, your mortgage could be less expensive than what you are paying for rent. Like some people say, if you are renting, you are simply paying someone elses mortgage. Not to scare anyone, but you have to be careful renting homes these days. Some homeowners that are renting their homes have liens against them or they are ...

Good morning Active Rainers, Buyers and Sellers: It's a beautiful day in Woodland Hills, California.  It's another sunny day for all of us to enjoy!  To those who read my blog, I would like to say, Welcome!  It's always a pleasure to have you stop by.

Me and my partner just closed a deal about a week ago, and we have a couple more in the pipeline that we plan to close before the end of 2011. One of the deals we just closed happens to be in one of our favorite neighborhoods, which is Woodland Hills, CA. We take pride in being professional and finding our clients their dream home especially in Woodland Hills. Some clients usually know what they want the first time they see a place.  And if it's their dream home, they usually aren't interested in other properties unless it's another one just like it for a lower price. And of course, you also have clients that just want something nice for a good price. And we feel that every client we deal with deserves to have their dream home. Me and my partner also attended a real estate seminar about...
