In a recent numbers crunch by FALP, the report showed that 18 percent of all homes in the USA with a mortgage in place are in a negative equity position.  Not good news. Nevada was shown to be the leader in negative equity with 48 percent of all their homes with mortgages in a negative equity position.  Michigan was second with 39 percent of homes in a negative equity position and tied for 3rd place were Florida and Arizona with 29 percent of their mortgages in a negative equity position.  Oh yes, California was right there with 27 percent of homes with a mortgage in a negative equity position.  Other than Michigan, these states are a haven for 2nd home investors.  And it is safe to say that 2nd home owners don't want to lose those homes.  I believe the situation in Michigan is driven ...

Two major and well respected educational facilities USC and UCLA teamed up recently to perform a study regarding consumer spending. The study showed that a rise in home values has a greater effect on consumer spending than any other asset, liquid or hard. Think about that...even money in the bank, does not have as much impact on consumer spending as when a person believes their home value is increasing. Now think...how important is our housing market to a turnaround in the overall economy.  Yep...our industry is integral to a successful economy.  And that is where the focus of governmental administration should be. Your comments are welcome... And thank you for making me Your Orange County Real Estate Connection. Best regards. Michael Caruso, Broker ABR ABRM CRB CRS GRI 2007 President,...

The Power of a Single Vote - Laguna Niguel Election Information and Polling Places       This year promises to be one of the biggest elections ever. Even in areas that have been offering early voting, lines on Nov. 4th could be longer than normal, so be prepared: - Bring water, something to read and maybe even a small folding chair to sit on while you wait. If you can, consider carpooling to the polling place to avoid traffic snarls. - Make sure you have proper California ID with you. A photo ID is best. If you encounter problems voting in Laguna Niguel or have questions, the California precinct workers are there to help. If that doesn't work, call 1-866-OUR-VOTE (1-866-687-8683) for advice.          Nancy & Heather ClowardPrudential California RealtyDirect: 949-495-2819 or 949-228-4523...

Regardless of your party affiliation you know that most, if not all states are in a deficit situation and oh my...so is our Federal government.   But look around and talk to the small business owners in this current market environment.  They know how to survive!  With credit lines squeezed about as tight as can be, small-business loans at a virtual standstill, declining revenues and rising costs to consider, the small business owners must be on top of their game.   You might find them cutting several phone lines from their phone tree, performing a second scan on bills to be sure they aren't over-billed on items, repairing equipment rather than buying new equipment, hiring temporary help rather than offering full time positions, and pooling errands to save on fuel.  For sure you'll find ...
