Have you ever thought you wanted to have another source of income, you certainly could have. Many people think we only work in areas where the price of homes is very low or in very poor neighborhoods. The photo above is an FHA 203k project we did a few years ago, as you can see some of these homes are in pretty nice areas. This one was in Fair Oaks, CA and the buyer was all over the 203k loan as it fit his needs most readily. Advantages to a contractor becoming a consultant include that you get to look at a property before most and you get to be paid to prepare a bid. Advantages to a Realtor is you get some cash up front while you wait for your commission on the sale. You also get to control the inspection. Conflicts of interest, well yea. Of course but you can make them go away by havi...

If you want to know about the Sewer Lateral program, just click on the link below, at the end of this post.There is a $4,500 up front deposit for the owner of the home. If you are a realtor and sell a home that doesn't have the sewer lateral certificate, the buyers may be stuck with that fee. If you are the seller, you can, put in your sales brochure that this must be taken care of by the buyer(s). In any case if you choose to fix it or the new buyer(s) want to fix it you can use the FHA 203k to accomplish this. If that happens get hold of me as we have been granted, not guaranteed, a waiver provided your consultant includes wording in his or her write up. If you sell without disclosing this to the new buyers YOU may be liable for the fee. Just a heads up.https://www.eastbaypsl.com/Mike...

No credit check for home buyersHow many homes could you sell if there is no credit check. I found out years ago that Cal-Vet doesn't check your credit and can close exceptionally fast if you merely are a veteran and put down 30% or more.I was buying a home and after a week called them to see when they might close the loan. I was shocked to find out that they could close tomorrow I had been pre-approved by putting down more than 30%. They have less than a 1% default rate when people put down 30% or more.Now to qualify as a Cal-Vet you merely need to have served in active duty regardless of where you entered the service and must be buying a home in CA.        downtown

Local Business Feature: Malaya Tea Room in Alameda Photo Courtesy: Malaya Tea Room This new tea room in Alameda has just opened last September 21st. I love the way how the owner Leena Lim has incorporated 1920s Malaysian/British era theme. When you step inside, you'll immediate feel the modern, fresh, and relaxing vibe. Malaya Tea Room is located at 920 Central Ave. in Alameda. Leena is an Alameda resident who grew up in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The place really looked like all of her memories during childhood were put together in one place. She mentioned tea time in Malaysia could be elegant, or informal, but when it hits 3:30pm, it means its time for tea.  With a mix of British and Asian culture, they serve sandwiches, snacks, and teas - one that you would usually find at a tea room in...

Why Alameda is one of the best places to visit in June?  If you are looking to get away this summer and is looking for a weekend of fun in the sun on the beach, or hunt for the best food trip with friends and family, you do not have to go far away from home especially if you are living in the Bay Area. The East Bay’s own Alameda features sandy shores and outdoor activities galore.  Topping the list is Crown Beach. It is a mecca for swimmers, waders, and sunbathers all summer long.PHOTO BY MARC CRUMPLER for Diablo Magazine You can also stop by Boardsports California's beachfront outpost and rent a stand-up paddleboard or kayak, or sign up for a windsurfing or kiteboarding lesson, in which board riders are propelled by wind power via a sail or strong kite. Kids will also enjoy visiting th...
