Homeowners are hungry for an advantage - something that can give their home an edge over the competition. According to Joshua “Dr.” Suess of Remax of Valencia, such advantages fall into one of two categories: price and condition. But for a great deal of homeowners, prices are already low enough… that leaves option two.  “Compare it to buying a car,” says Suess. “If you’re looking at two cars and they both cost $20,000 and one has all the bell and whistles, which one would you buy?”  Translation? Before you put your home on the market, make a few simple upgrades. Paint the walls. Plant some petunias. Clear some counter space.  In real estate circles, such changes are called staging. In the same way you might consider detailing your car before you slap a for-sale sign on it, staging your...

I just closed another successful short sale, but It could have been a disaster because of an easily overlooked paperwork situation that had come to my attention that many agents probably make, and live to regret. In this situation both notes for the 1st and 2nd mortgages were held by the same bank and both investors had agreed to the short sale. Each of them signed off an approval separately,however after the close of escrow date had been moved up by only three days from the original HUD date, due to the buyer's loan processing delay, a delay which was approved of by the bank negotiator, a new release letter or final approval letter was issued that had both the first and second loan on one sheet of paper. This was deemed as  "unacceptable" by title, who claimed that there now was a "clo...

The first thing that probably comes to mind is a funny commercial or someone with a white mustache but this M.I.L.K. stands for Managing Information on Lost Kids. Everyday, parents think it can never happen to them. Yet everyday it happens, a child is reported missing in the U.S. Here are some sobering statistics. According to a 2002 study from the Department of Justice over 797,000 children (under18) go missing in the U.S. each year. An average of 2,185 children are reported missing everyday! 40% of parents of a missing child cannot supply a current picture. 34% of parents do not know their child's correct height, weight, and eye color. Our local office in Valencia has partnered up with M.I.L.K www.milkdigitalid.com to supply local parents with this vital tool which has been called the...

Unsure about how much you need to save in order to make a down payment on a home? There are several options. It's not always easy to save up enough to make the traditional 20 percent down payment on a home. Fortunately, lenders today offer many low-down-payment mortgages. But when deciding how much to put down, you should consider the following: Is 20 percent the standard down payment? In order to qualify for a conventional mortgage, lenders usually require a minimum down payment of 20 percent. If you put down less than 20 percent, most lenders will require you buy Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). This insurance typically costs about one-half of 1 percent of the purchase price of the home and protects the lender in the event that you should default on the loan. Your overall mortgage co...

Start with a plan. 1. Make a list of projects you want to complete during the year and prioritize them. You don't have to do everything in January and February; pace yourself so you won't feel overwhelmed. Take three simple steps. 2. Every organization project starts with three basic steps: purge the items you no longer want or need, analyze what's left to determine how you use it and measure the space you have to figure out what will fit where. When you're organizing, use a three-box system: keep, discard, and don't know. When you're finished, seal the don't know box and put it away. If you haven't opened it in a year, you don't really need whatever is in there. Throw it away without looking inside. Clean out the closets. 3. Get everyone in your household involved by competing for the...
