OVER 55? CALIFORNIA PROPERTY TAX RELIEF Since its passage, Proposition 13 prohibits property tax increases until property ownership is changed. If either spouse is over age 55 (when the old home is sold), PROP 60 allows replacement of a primary residence with a new home of equal or lesser value (but see below) within the same county and transfer of the Prop 13 assessed valuation from the old home to the new property.  This is allowed once in your lifetime, and a spouse who has done it before 'taints' both spouses. PROP 90 allows counties to elect to accept transfers of Prop 13 values for moves from other counties when a primary residence is replaced with a less expensive (but see below) home. If you are over 55 and move into a county which accepts Prop 90, you may take your old, lower P...

Cameron Park Airpark-is a Special Place to live.  Check out the mini-airport, wide streets, short street signs-to accomodate the wingspan of its residents' vehicles/private planes, and watch the residents just pull right in to their Garage/Hanger.  Really cool.  Not to mention the Patriotic lights of the runway, which you can see at night.  I remember the first time I drove through these streets-and thought...I want to live here some day!  Nice large lots, Custom homes-and very affordable.  Lots are also still available to build new.  Call Wendi-Mae Davis, for any and all questions and details you might wish to have or want!  Also call about the upcoming Annual Show and Shine!  I am a CRS, and a GRI-also a Broker Associate with Connect Realty-and a Real Estate Counsultant-Toll Free 866-...

When you were looking for your current home, you had two lists in your head: a list of needs and a list of wants.  In all liklihood, windows weren't on either list because you assume that every house has them.  Windows, like doors, are a given.  Or are they?  Some describe windows as a luxury.  While a door is essential in even the most primitive house, "windows are a refinement, an amenity that makes a place more livable."  Through the centuries, windows have grown in size and improved in technology, but the problem of energy loss has gotten more complex.  The heat lost in residential and commercial blds. in 1990 cost the U.S. $20 Billion alone.  If you have old frame, aluminum framed, single paned windows, or even double paned windows with leaky seals, your home is part of that statis...

GOOD REALTOR TO USE FOR A REFERRAL! Recently, I had the pleasure of referring a family friend's parents who were relocating to the El Dorado Hills and Cameron Park area.  I htought of an old friend and colleague, Wendi-Mae Davis who has since left Silicon Valley and relocated up thereherself,, escaping the hustle and bustle of Bay Area living. She did such a fantastic job, I wanted to sing her praises in a public forum.My clients were extremely happy, and love their new place, which Wendi-Mae had found for them.She never missed a phone call, and was "Extremely informative and helpful" and they are now enjoying their new life in the Sierra foothills. As one who believes in the axiom to praise publicly and reprimand privately, I just wanted to say "Thank you" to Wendi-Mae. Wendi-Mae, I am...
