By old I mean I have known the nice Realtor couple for a long time and they are old, not that it makes any difference. So I asked them How's Biz? (my usual opening line!). I have heard: It's Ok, it great, or it sucks!  But he responded it is Dizzying!!  I have not heard that kind of repsonse ever. I though to myself, they must be having tough times.

But is also our attitude towards the market and the conditions. It is bad if you make it so, it is good if you make it so, it certainly IS Dizzying if you believe so. As I was leav...

Home Buyers - Cut Your Buying Time in Half! Are you a home buyer and frustrated about the whole buying process! Are you frustrated with your agent, or the bank, or the seller or the lender? You are not alone!  But this should not be the case. Buying a house is a fun process, it is enjoyable, it is exciting and it keeps your dreams of a new and better life closer than you think. Here are 4 Things that you MUST do before you even start looking for a home: 1. Talk to a lender. You must get prequalified and get a loan approval. Seller's and listing agents will not look at any offer's without this document. This will also give you the price range of the home that you can afford. My past client just called me yesterday and he wants to write and offer on a house few houses down from his curren...

Jolly Jack O'Lanterns and a Hearse - Friday's Fotos       This hearse was decked out with smiling jack o'lanterns and Santa hats that seemed a little at odds with a hearse.  It's just so festive.  I suppose it could be a celebration of somebody's life, but it was just one of those things that caught my eye.

Where is Your Cash Cow -  Get it Now. So I was prospecting to find sellers who owned rentals in the Anaheim and Anaheim Hills. I was calling on them to see if they wanted to sell their rental properties or if they had thought about more properties since the home prices are low and the interest rates are at historic lows!   I remember when I started real estate,a seller I was talking to mentioned to me, 'Son, buy 10 homes now, so when you retire, you will have Cash Flow, don't rely on social security, it won't be enough"  Well, it happened to me again. I had called on an elderly gentleman who now lives in the San Diego county. I asked him over the phone if he wanted to sell his house. He had owned it since 1977. He said "Young man, that is my Cash Cow! The tenants have been staying there...

It is true that the higher the inventory, the more the competiton to sell homes. This cause a stablility on homes prices or even a drop in price. Notice the rise in inventory for the last several months.
