Ricardo Ramos at Platinum Home Mortgage certainly is one lender who knows his stuff. I remember when he and I worked a Premium Mortgage and he left to open his own Net Branch lending office. I remember mostly because about 20+ years ago he asked me to come with him and do his appraisals. He did 28 loans in his first month in business on his own. if there was any doubt that he was going to survive it was put aside that first month. All that time Ricardo has also done the FHA 203k loans.It has always impressed me that you can take a home in very p...

POINT RICHMOND REAL ESTATE-WHAT IS CONTINGENT VS. PENDING Many clients are mystified by what the difference between a property that is contingent versus one that is pending.  Hopefully, I can clear some of that confusion up for everyone.  When you as a buyer place an offer on a property and a seller accepts, you are given a certain number of days to complete your contingencies.  A contingency can be an inspection, an appraisal, loan verification, etc.  Typically in California the purchase contract allows for standard timeframes for each contingency.  Acceptance begins the day after the acceptance date.  So if you get a contact back from the seller on May7th, the clock starts ticking on your contingency period begins on May 8th.  LOAN APPLICATION, meaning within seven days after acceptan...

  As if advertising for business is not hard enough in these times so is keeping your advertising materials. I just wanted to let everyone know that it's important to always keep an eye on your car when you are out and about on appointments.  This blog is to all the Realtors/Agents and anyone who owns a business that owns car magnets for advertising. Most recently I purchased some car magnets for my VW Convertible. These car magnets were great!! They had my name, company logo and contact information. The quality of the workmanship was outstanding. (http://make-realestatesigns.com/) Oh, the best part of all was the cost. These car magnets were by far one of the most inexpensive items I have acquired for my business.  Needless to say, all that came to a screaching halt a couple of weeks a...

There is so much competition out there that just providing a good service is not enough to stay above the competition. I've got an idea that can help you close your sales. Why not offer a mini vacation.  You can actually afford a mini vacation as an incentive for the buyer after they close or you can offer the incentive to the sellers.  This website has mini vacations for just under $ 250.00. What if your buyers & sellers have put everything they have into this transaction and they just need to get away from everything and everyone for a couple of days but financially speaking they can't afford it. These people are genuinely strapped for money. Everything they have went into the home. Wouldn't you like to help them out? Why not be that person that can provide the service for them.  Chec...
