Chico, California Homes with a Pool  The National Association of Realtors says that an in-ground pool can add approximately 7.7% more value to the home's overall market value.   If you have a family that is the "outdoorsy" type then maybe having your own pool is a good move.   Many people believe pools increase the attractiveness of their landscaping. People who host lots of parties use their pool as entertainment, especially for the children. Pools provide an easy way to cool down when those hot days arrive. Some people use swimming pools exclusively for water aerobics and "in the water" types of exercises. Some people say swimming pools provide added health benefits.

What is a Comparative Market Analysis? In 2014 we expect the real estate market to gain momentum.  Home equity has returned for a good percentage of homeowners and now these homeowners will be home sellers.  Be mindful of pricing your home at "market value."   What is "market value?"  It is the price or agreement a willing buyer and seller agree to at a given time.  These sales are used by real estate agents and real estate appraisers to establish value.  Ideally only the most recent sales are used.  To get the most accurate estimate of how much you should list your property for, your real estate agent can provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). A Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) is an informal estimate of market value based on sales of comparable properties in your neigh...

Is now the right time to buy?   If You Can Afford to Rent...You Can Probably Afford to Own. Interest rates are near historic lows. Purchasing power has increased, and the cost of renting in many areas is now greater than the cost to buy. Some say mortgage loans are impossible to obtain without perfect credit and 20% down. Want the truth? Read on, and we'll cite the three basic factors for qualifying for a home loan. So, is now the right time to buy?  Income - If you have a job or steady source of income, you're off to a great start. If you're already able to pay your rent on time each month, this could actually be easier than you might think.   Assets - You rarely need a 20% down payment. In reality, many programs will work with 5%, 3.5% and in some cases, even 0% down. As well, closing...

The Sandi Bauman Team Stats for January Everybody says January is a slow month for sales. We beg to differ. See below. Many potential sellers have been waiting for the distressed market to run it’s course, so that property values would stabilize and begin to recover. If you’re one of those homeowners, the Chico real estate market finally has good news for you!  Chico prices have improved by about 5.7% in the past 12 months. Combine that with super low interest rates and reduced inventory, and we might be looking at the exact opportunity that many homeowners have been waiting for. One of the most important decisions a seller has to make, aside from timing, is which Realtor they should entrust to list, market, and negotiate their property.   Continue reading on The Pink Couch!

Driving through San Jose yesterday I saw this roof design, It has been many years since I saw this roof type but it certainly lends some character to a home, don't you agree?        I love this design style and the roof adds a craftsman quality to the design.              Spanish influence is clear with this one. Check out the wrought iron at the second story balcony.                12" classic profile is the most popular of the roof profiles for residential roofing.We used to manufacture several different types of sheet metal roofing.         This is a 50-year roof but dimensional comp shingle roofs come in a wide array of thicknesses with 25-50 year warranties.

What exactly does CA Civil Code 1695 say, and how does it apply to homeowners in Chico facing short sale or foreclosure?   Civil Code 1695 1695 (a) The Legislature finds and declares that homeowners whose residences are in foreclosure have been subjected to fraud, deception, and unfair dealing by home equity purchasers. The recent rapid escalation of home values, particularly in the urban areas, has resulted in a significant increase in home equities which are usually the greatest financial asset held by the homeowners of this state. During the time period between the commencement of foreclosure proceedings and the scheduled foreclosure sale date, homeowners in financial distress, especially the poor, elderly, and financially unsophisticated, are vulnerable to the importunities of equit...
