I Never have time to Blog, only when a Plumber visits my homes. I have always wondered when I would have time to blog. All the gurus are saying, 'blog blog..'. But usually I have no ideas on what to blog or when to blog. I starting blogging more constantly about a month ago, and found out the right time to blog is when you have a thought on your mind or an urge to say whats on your mind. It is 8:30am here in beautiful Anaheim Hills, Orange county, and I am at home with a plumber, he is fixing things up!  He could only come today between hours of 8-12am today. I always wondered why it is always that they have a 4 hour period for an appointment, imagine agents setting up appointments and saying I will be there between 4-8pm!   The gas companies and electric companies do that as well. Anyw...

Anaheim Hills Loan Modification:  40 year loan - Yikes I live and work in Anaheim Hills. I have come across many home owners work on the loan modification.

So I asked him  what the advantages and disadvantages were of this Anaheim Hills homes loan modification.  Here is what he told me:   Advantages of his Loan Modification: 1. Interest rate drop from 6.25%  to...

    Señor Short Sale Says…. Avoiding Probate in California is easy! It is easy to avoid probate if you prepare in advance. Here are a few of the methods for avoiding probate: LIVING TRUSTS: Assets owned through a living trust do not need to be probated. JOINT TENANCY: An asset will not usually be in probate if it is owned by two or more people as joint tenants. The assets can be identified by the words "joint tenants," or "in joint tenancy," "JT TEN," or similar wording. Also when a joint tenant dies, the other joint tenant takes 100% ownership of the asset.  It doesn’t matter what the will or trust says about the property of the deceased joint tenant. One drawback to Joint tenancy is that it is not recommended for assets that can go up in value.  Such as a home, because the surviving j...

 The joy that "Disney" brings to our lives!    "Walt Disney" had a Vision & Dream many, many years ago when he was standing on the bluff in Anaheim California looking over hundreds & thousands of Orange trees.  Walt wanted to make a "Happy" place for families to go and have fun and bond together.  Well the rest is history and here are several photographs of where "Disney Land" all started in Southern California.      And I don't know who could ever go to a "Disney" Park anywhere in the World and not have a wonderful time!    This post is for you "Walt Disney" and thanks for all the joy you have brought to Families & Children around the World!     Post & Pics by Robert Swetz - 6-28-2010     Disneyland® Theme Park Tickets | Disneyland® Resort
