ANAHEIM HILLS, CALIFORNIA SHORT SALE SPECIALISTS - Katnik Brothers. Short sales are now protected in California thanks to a recent California Senate Bill.

You may be surprised to find out about these Toxic Foods For Dogs.  I'm posting this here in an effort to get the word out to as many pet owners as possible. I stopped at an appointment one day last month. Bella was with me, so I locked the truck and left the air conditioner on. This is so common for us, that she often moves over to the passenger seat and patiently waits as soon as I pull into a parking lot. That’s exactly what she did this time. When I returned about 35 minutes later, I saw she had gotten into my grapes. I had a large baggie with a very large bunch of red seedless grapes that I was working on throughout the afternoon. They were all gone. The depleted vine was sitting on the passenger seat and Bella was wagging her tail. I enjoy the humor of ever moment, so I used my ph...

Are you looking for a family oriented Realtor in Anaheim Hills?  Check out Childish Treasures: Childish Treasures My new office manager has two beautiful daughters that visit the office once or twice a week. They have adopted Mommy’s new boss with open arms. My office is covered with drawings and notes of the girls, the office, their house and especially Bella – who is also in the office almost every day. Chris was worried last month that summer is coming up and she might have to bring the girls to the office more often. I told her that Alex-10 and Megan-6½ are so well-behaved and I run a family business – so their presence in the office is welcome. She was appreciative, but worried and started to think aloud about some things she could bring to the office to keep the girls entertained....

SHORT SALES REPRESENTED 31% OF THE MARKET IN MAY. KATNIK BROTHERS, BROKER REALTOR, ANAHEIM HILLS, CA. SINGLE FAMILY HOME AND CONDO SPECIALISTS. May's numbers actually breathed a sigh of relief for homeowners as it represented a decrease from April (37%). A large reduction in foreclosed homes through quick sales and pre-emptive short sales are also boosting prospects of a stabilizing market. The shadow inventory of foreclosed homes has dipped substantially furthering the belief of many the market is headed for an upswing. Less short sales and foreclosed homes will only boost the number of standard sales and positive comparables to move the market up. For information on how all this effects the Single Family Home and Condo market in ANAHEIM HILLS, call the Katnik Brothers at 714-726-2293....

What do I mean by an AVID Professional in Anaheim Hills?  We rely on different phrases to identify people of character; the cream rises to the top, it separates the men from the boys and you can soar with the eagles or toil with the turkeys… About three or four years ago, after real estate-related lawsuits had become the number one lawsuit in our Golden State, the California Association of Realtors (CAR) created the Agents Visual Inspection Disclosure (AVID). The form requires each and every agent involved in a transaction to do a reasonably diligent visual inspection of the property and document their inspection results. The form was met with so much resistance by so many agents that, to this day, it is still not a required disclosure in the transaction for many offices. I took a compl...
