.REALTOR Domain URLs Are Now Available As of this morning you can get a .REALTOR domain url for your real estate business, as long as you are a NAR member. There are many reasons why getting this domain is important, but the main reason I did for our Garrigus Real Estate Group is I couldn't imagine someone else owning my namesake! Another reason why I deemed it important is the love Google seems to give to websites with urls matching certain search terms; a website with the url Beaumont-CA-Tire-Store.com would tend to rank better for the search term "Tire stores in Beaumont CA" than GeorgesShop.com. There are some limitations to what you can get in the url. Below is a short list of requirements and restrictions: As mentioned already, you must be a member of the National Association of R...

Do I Need a Pre-Qualification to See a Home For Sale? Yes.... No.... Well.... Maybe.... OK, here's the deal.... What Exactly Is A Pre-Qualification? A pre-qualification letter is an estimate of what a lender will loan you based on what a buyer states they make and what they owe on their bills, but without actually verifying any of this information. This is not to be confused with actually applying for a loan. A step above a pre-qualification letter is a pre-approval letter. To be pre-approved a buyer must have given a lender documentation to verify income(s) and debt(s) and authorize credit checks. How Does a PreQualification Help a Buyer? The simple truth is sellers don't not want to waste their time and efforts with buyers that are either not serious or unable to purchase. In fact, in...

HomeSnap is a great app. If you haven't explored it yet, you should. It can help real estate agents, home buyers and even homes sellers in various ways. I won't bother to describe how I use it, because its an app that deserves exploring! OK, OK...  I WILL tell you how I use it: Its great for getting info on a house while you're out in the field. Simply HomeSnap it, verify the correct address, and viola! You get square footage, lot size, whether its for sale or not, etc.. I use it to remember homes or properties I, or a buyer of mine, is interested in. I can set up a buyer with the app that wants to explore neighborhoods on their own. Simply link their account to yours, and anything they like they can HomeSnap, and the property will be sent to you automatically so you can investigate the...

A Cute Mouse Catcher   My daughter lives in an urban area of a large city and has a 3 story apartment and of course it is not uncommon to have mice. So she rented a cat from her friends twice. Apparently the cat doesn't even have to catch the mice but the odor of the cat is enough to make the mice move on to someone else's.   Recently she got a new pet, a 8 week old cat named Iggy. At first her 4 year old Wired Hair Terrier didn't care for the cat but they have made peace after a couple of weeks.  And what is really good news is that the mice are GONE!   Thanks for Reading my Real Estate Blog

Are there still short sales in Beaumont, California? Of course there are! In fact, we've actually seen a resurgence of the short sale transactions in Beaumont CA. Home prices are still struggling to exceed the home values we saw before the major housing crash, and now with the economic outlooks of the middle class not just lingering near all-time lows, but sinking even farther. But don't just take my word for it; check out these numbers I pulled from our local MLS that serves Beaumont, California and Southern California area. I simply extracted the number of standard listings compared to short sale listings for each month, starting in January 2014: Month Standard Sales Short Sales January 2014 50 16 February 2014 44 11 March 2014 70 16 April 2014 77 15 May 2014 115 17 June 2014 131 25 J...

Well, I decided a while ago that video was going to be a large part of our marketing and advertising because of the huge push the medium has made over the last few years. I've found creating a video is fairly easy, but creating a great video is difficult. I tend to prefer still pictures in my real estate videos because live action videos can look horrible in an amateur's hands with all shaky and jumpy shots that can make you dizzy just to watch! Eventually I will try to incorporate more live action, but for now, I'm on mostly still shots. But I have found a few tools that really REALLY help in making my video so far, like the program Windows Movie Maker. I know the program is simplistic for experienced video editors, but for me, I'll stick with the easy program for now. Also, Bob Stewar...

Oak Valley Greens in Beaumont, California - Market Report Aug. 7th 2014 I did a little research in our regional MLS of the Oak Valley Greens Community, located in Beaumont, California to determine what the state of real estate for the community is. My wife and I live in the community, and we are very fond of the area. We love how close we are to the Brookside Elementary for our grade school children, and the "Oak Valley Greenbelt" which is well maintained and unites a great local community. Oak Valley Greens is also close to the 10 Freeway for easy commuting access, and fairly close to most shopping needs, like Stater Bros., a post office, Walmart, Best Buy, Home Depot, Staples and various restaurants as well. My research compared all sold homes in the Oak Valley Greens from January 1st...

Colorful Crepe Myrtle Trees are Beautiful to Landscape With   I notice many beautiful Crepe Myrtle trees growing here in Southern California. They come in a variety of pinks, lavenders, reds and also white. Many shopping centers and parks like them as you can mix the colors and make a beautiful setting.    Where I live, they have about 8 lining both sides of the entrance for a beautiful and dramatic entryway. The birds ike to find refuge in these trees and it makes nice pictures.   The flowers grow in large clumps and are very showy. Every home should have at least one Crepe Myrle tree. California is a dream come true state no matter what your needs or wants are. We have year round warm weather, beautiful beaches, rustic mountains and desert communities. If you are looking for a home in...
