You put in offer after offer and the entry level buyers frequently get knocked out of the ring by investors with a higher down payment or cash...
It's a trifecta today! 1. Closed an escrow for some great clients on a Ventura Home. (I think we wrote a total of 8 offers along     the way.) 2. Got some much needed rain in Ventura - 2 " +! 3. "Taxi" the wonder dog is in labor since 7 AM and has birthed 7 healthy white lab puppies so far.

According to a title company source, the Department of Insurance has finally seen the light and retracted their recent misguided decision of no documents and comps from our hard working Title Companies! Thank you CAR and NAR for your efforts in making my job of selling Ventura homes a tiny bit ea...
We finally got our approval on a short sale that's been in escrow for almost 4 months. Yeah! Sold for $350,000 and appraised at that - 3 1/2 months ago. Sooooo, the sellers lender (Countrywide) says it's a go, but we'll only take $315,000 for it. Apparently they're afraid of a review appraisal th...
