One of my family's favorite getaways in the wintertime is Yuma, Arizona. We don't live there full-time, but its a great place to visit because of its various attractions. One of our loved activities is driving our buggy along the many canals in the area. The canals run through many crops and fields and usually are banked by a dirt road. The scenery is breathtaking and very serene. Here's a photo of one of our excursions: Want to sell your Beaumont CA home? Click Here For Help!

  As the market continues to improve, and we see prices on new and resale homes steadily going up, with interest rates joining the party, the question is, will the waiting for a higher price, cost YOU, a higher price?   Example:   Someone who purchased a 3 bedroom 2 bath home for $150,000 ten years ago, could be seeing their neighborhood now selling for $180,000. After 10 years’ time, they have outgrown their home, or have found that they have different needs now from what they originally wanted in a home.   The homeowner, seeing their neighborhood increase in price, decides to wait until the market reaches $200,000 in their neighborhood before they sell, giving them more of a profit so that they can purchase more home later.   But is that really the case?   If this home owner is lookin...

   The other day I took my 5 year old granddaughter shopping for Christmas. The goal was she would buy gifts for her family and not be focused on self.  I thought this task was going to take hours, hours, and hours!  She wouldn’t know what to buy,  she would want to keep running back to the girl section and look for Barbie’s, Pink Lego’s, anything pink, girlie, and for her, but she proved me wrong. She met my challenge head on.  She knew who she had to buy for, she thought about what they liked and picked out some great gifts.  I was quite impressed.  She was done in about an hour!  This really made me realize how many times we get so stressed trying to find the perfect gift, or try to guess what our loved ones might want for Christmas that through a childs eyes it was so simple.  She r...

Welcome Home Wednesday! During the month of November, we are going to be providing you information about home warranties. When we negotiate an offer for the sale of a home, we typically try to negotiate a home warranty be provided to our buyer(s) so that they can have some piece of mind on how the key components of the home will work. Upon the successful negotiation of a home warranty for our buyer(s), we suggest to them one of a few reputable warranty companies. This month we will be talking about 2-10 Home Warranty. 2-10 Home Warranty can help you ensure that your major components to your home are covered if they should break. Such things like your AC Unit, Water Heater, Stove, Refrigerator, Dishwasher, Electrical and even Plumbing items. This is just some of the item covered in the h...

Welcome Home Wednesday! One popular feature, when purchasing a home, is a swimming pool, but one thing to consider is the liability and costs associated with having and maintaining a pool. Swimming pools add great value to entertaining guest and family, complementing your back yard landscaping, and a great form of exercise. During the inspection period, for the purchase of your new home, your REALTOR should recommend that you have the swimming pool equipment inspected for reliability of the pump, equipment and construction of the pool itself. In turn, you should obtain an insurance quote from your insurance provider. Someone like Sandy Ramos, of Farmers Insurance Group, can give you a quote for what it will cost to insure your pool home. A few things to take note of when looking at pool...

We have a vacation home we visit in the winter months in Yuma, Arizona. We love it out there! The home is located in the Foothills community, where access to the desert washes and other off-road riding is immediate. In the summer months we lock up the house and secure it because we won't be there for a while. But every year when we go back, we see streams coming from the ceiling! They first started off as short cones, but if they are given the opportunity they will get longer and longer. Our first call.... the exterminator. Why? Because those seemingly strings of dust is in actuality termite poop! Yup, if you find one or more of these, its time to call someone to treat your home and protect it. I thought I'd include a picture of the longest termite stream we've found: real state offices...

I love the business of real estate. The picture below is of a new community entrace sign that highlights (at least for me) the differences in real estate by market and area. I'm a Beaumont real estate agent that lives and works in Southern California, but I visit and vacation frequently in the Yuma, Arizona area, specifically the Foothills part of Yuma, which has a lot of sprawling desert and hills, canals, etc.. Its a great place if you like riding in the dirt and sand but don't necessarily want to go camping. Near our vacation house there's a new community that has started construction again. I say again because before the housing crash in 2008 the developers had laid the foundations of the community: infrastructure, streets, brick walls, everything except for the actual houses. This ...

Welcome Home Wednesday! Many of the things that you insure include your home, your car, and your boat, but what about your other personal belongings?   Sandy Ramos, Insurance Agent with Famers Insurance Group, located at 913 West 16th Street, Yuma, Arizona 85364, recommends that you also insure your personal belongings. Not just your T.V’s, furniture and other electronics, but your clothes! If in the event of a fire, you will need to replace your wardrobe. Having them insured will help you replace your wardrobe much quicker. After you have insured your items with your agent, video tape and store your video tapped documents so that you have an account of your items on record. Down load and email them to yourself so that you can provide them to anyone later, should you need a record of yo...

Welcome Home Wednesday brings you more helpful information from Sandy Ramos with Farmers Insurance Group, located at 913 West 16th Street Yuma, Az. 85364. When looking for a home, certain neighborhoods require flood insurance on the home due to the location for where the home sits in relation to possible flooding. Your REALTOR will bring items like these to your attention when you are searching for a home. However, it doesn't take living next to the coast or being in a high risk zone to bring flood damage your way. Excessive rain, poor drainage systems, broken water mains and rapid rain falls in Yuma can all lead to flooding. 25% of all flood insurance claims come from medium to low risk areas. Therefore, even if you are not in a high risk area, you still might want to consider purchasi...

During the purchase of your home, you will have an "Inspection Period," which is typically 10 days. However, your REALTOR and you can increase the amount of time if you decide it’s needed. This inspection period allows you to overview the home from the foundation to the roof and everything in between. It even allows you to research the neighborhood and school districts. But one of the things that we remind our clients to do during this time period is to call for a home owner insurance quote from people like Sandy Ramos at Farmers Insurance Group, located at 913 West 16th Street Yuma, Az. phone number is 928-539-0581. Keep in mind, if your home ownership policy is going to be included into the mortgage, this cost will then impact your monthly mortgage payment. Here is something to consid...

Welcome to Yuma, Arizona You won't want to miss The Colorado River Crossing Balloon Festival!  The festival is held every November- the weekend before Thanksgiving. It is an amazing spectacle of COLOR & beauty!  For over 10 years of my life in Yuma, I unfortunately, missed this beautiful event. Then in 2010 I was blown away when I caught my first  Balloon Glow with my sons. The next morning we watched the balloons launch as the sun rose. That was it- I'm hooked! They are so incredibly beautiful!  Each year an organization formed in 1962- The Caballeros de Yuma (Gentleman of Yuma), proudly present The Colorado River Crossing Balloon Festival and many other wonderful events here in Yuma, AZ.  For those of you not familiar with the organization, they are a wonderful group, comprised mostly...
