Home Inspections Are So Important- So Don't Waive Your Rights Never scrimp on the purchase of your new home; whether it is "New Construction" or a "Resale Home" because it is definitely money well spent. I personally have had one on every home I purchased and luckily I never found anything bad but some of my clients have. Here is a few items I will share. These were items that needed to be fixed or replaced before the home closed. Very important to know what you are buying as you do not want to take over someone else's problems. 1. A furnace in the attic that had been recalled due to house fires. The company has since gone out of business and there is no money left but the buyer knew it had to be replaced before moving in. 2. A recall on a dishwasher due to the door causing fires due to...

Do You Know How to Get Rid of Mosquitoes & Not Risk West Nile Disease Did you know many people have gotten sick and died of West Nile Disease in the past 13 years? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 30,000 people in the US have been diagnosed with the disease and over 1,200 have died. Not all cases are properly diagnosed so the odds are there are many more cases and more deaths. What is the mosquito’s active season? From April to October yearly is the active mosquito season. The freezing weather kills off the disease.  What time do they actively bite? Typically from dusk to dawn but there is a few that will bite in the day time.  Where do the mosquitoes normally lay their eggs?

Not Putting Enough Information on Social Media Can Cause Problems A few years ago when I first signed up for Facebook, I had been warned not to put any personal information on my site. Of course FB asks if you are married, in a relationship, what books and movies you like and on and on. So when I got to the status question, I left it blank as that is an option too. Well....the very next morning when I opened my site to read posts from my friends and colleagues, I found many personal emails from men and women wanting to be "very good friends". I thought to myself "Wait a minute, why is this happening as I had heard FB was protected".   So I called my daughter who was already an expert on the site and she opened it up and told me I should have put "Married" for my status instead of leavin...

    California has beautiful sunrises and sunsets. If you have never experienced them, be sure to come for a visit and say a while or stay forever…….     This morning at 5:44 am in Redlands, CA looking over the San Timoteo Canyon.                 Sunrise is the instant which the upper edge of the Sun appears over the eastern horizon in the morning. The term also refers to the entire process of the sun crossing which takes approximately 34 minutes. I really like this picture as a bird is flying by.               There is the illusion of the sun moving but actually it is the Earth’s motion that causes the sun to appear. This motion called Sunrise was a major event that most cultures of the world created myths and religions about the entire process. There were also many myths around the m...

Calimesa CA REALTORS know that the Calimesa CA real estate market has stabilized and Calimesa CA home values are on the rise. This is great news for Calimesa home owners looking to increase their equity and sell their homes for a profit. In the recent two years we have seen Calimesa home values stabilize from the market crash that began in 2007 and 2008. Now, with real estate inventory so low in the Calimesa area, buyers are fighting over and over-bidding on reasonably priced homes on the market. In a "normal" real estate market, there is typically about six months of inventory on the market at any given time, but in today's Calimesa real estate market we are seeing only one to two months of inventory at any given time. In fact, homes are actually selling, or going into contract, within...

Calimesa Short Sale Many Calimesa home sellers, whether they are selling the property as a standard sale, short sale or just curious about price-setting, have many questions and reservations. But the real estate market climate in Calimesa is not much of a mystery, its just hard sometimes to filter through the abundance of information to get simple answers. Calimesa homes are selling faster than listings are hitting the market. This creates a seller's market. Home prices have firmed up and are slowly rising. Also, standard sellers, or equity sellers, are still reluctant about selling due to still-low home values and their own mortgage loans that may keep their net profits from being able to clear cost of sale. Calimesa short sales are still hitting the market and are a large percentage o...

SHORT SALE SPECIALISTS CALIMESA CA We have created the Real Estate Short Sale Formula for under-water and distressed homeowners in Calimesa, California. Calimesa has many homes and families facing foreclosure, but they don't know if they would qualify for a short sale of their Calimesa CA home to avoid complete financial devastation. What Does a Real Estate Short Sale Mean for Calimesa CA Homeowners? The definition of a real estate short sale means that the Calimesa CA house is about to be in foreclosure due to the default in payments of the mortgage. The owner of the Calimesa home sells it for less than what they owe for the property. It is far better for their credit to sell it short than to lose the house to foreclosure.
