While attending one of my monthly meetings with fellow real estate agents yesterday I was informed of this great program for First Time Home Buyers who are seeking a home in the city of Anaheim, California. After reviewing this information I discovered that one of my buyer's can qualify based on the criteria the city has established for this program. So to keep it simple and direct I have decided to allow the links to the program to do all the talking. For information on this programs information and guide lines just click on this link Anaheim (CA) $125,000 Down Payment Assistance Program.

Last month while in Los Angeles, Mark Cooper made a quick trip to downtown disney. (the recent addition to disneyland that includes resturants, shops, and street venders, WITHOUT RIDES). A nice feature of downtown disney is the free parking and the lack of admission charge. Mark Cooper's goal was "Build-a-Bear", with the intention of picking up a gift certificate for a kids birthday party. While strolling down the street, Mark was surprised to find many signs that said "coming soon, an exciting new addition to downtown disney". Read between the lines, even DISNEYLAND has vacant retail space right now. Thats right, its not just commercial real estate in San Francisco, KW Commercial sees things are tough all over and retail, even in downtown disney is hurting. this amusement park story su...

Why not?  Don't we need to know the status of those that we are about to spend our limited time with?  I certainly feel that a buyer needs to at least pass a simplified test.  That test to me is the pre-qualification with a lender test.  Is that really to much to ask?  Isn't it prudent for them to find out how much they can afford (be approved for) in order to establish the criteria of homes we go out to see.  My number one rule is to push for the buyer to get the pre-approval before we "show" homes.  I know (and have had) some buyers prefer to "look first" and then apply for the loan -- but this is a disaster waisting to happen.  IF a buyer will not get pre-approved or a least call a lender, then how serious are they?  I for one can not spend my time(and that is what we are selling) sh...

Why do we have to even say this?  Isn't it common knowledge?  But alas, it is not all that common.  For instance today I watched a couple come into the office for a 1PM appointment with a Realtor.  They were 5 minutes early and the agent was in the back room -- supposedly working on paper work.  The agent never came out to greet them at all and in fact the clients were just sitting around waiting for her to show up.  Needless to say after they asked about her twice, they were getting irritated, very irritated.  I called her and she said to give them coffee or water and put them in a conference room.  No conference room was available at that time.  I finally got feed up and went to the agents desk and told her they were still waiting.  She wanted me to stall them - I SAID TO GET OUT HERE...

Now that the taxpayers have finally spoken (fired the head of GM), it is time to go after some other culprits too.  I am talking about the union leaders.  They had a big hand in the downfall of the auto industry.  It may not be entirely the current union presidents fault, but that is true for the current CEO of GM too.  We have to set an example for the future, and believe you me, the message will be heard by the future CEO and union presidents.  Major changes are required.

I should have sensed the connection sooner -- Heim (a German word).  I finally woke up to the connection for Anaheim and the German influence.  Anaheim real estate is sprinkled with "Auf Deutsch" and rightfully so since the founders were German immigrants.  If you Google "Anaheim German Influence" and you can find detailed histories and many accounts of how this all happened --interesting stuff.  Also note that the German club - "The Phoenix Club" is of course in Anaheim.
