Just north of the hills of Santa Clarita, between the Angeles National Forest and the Los Padres National Forest, is the community of Castaic.  The roots of the city lie in the opening of the original Ridge Route in 1915, which was the first paved highway, directly linking the Los Angeles Basin with the San Joaquin Valley over the Tejon Pass and the rugged ridge south of Gorman.  The Ridge Route was particularly used to travel from the city of Los Angeles and to and beyond Bakersfield.  Most of the road was bypassed and has since been upgraded to the CA Interstate 5 freeway.  The portion of the old road within the Angeles National Forest was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.  Today, Castaic is a growing and affordable community near the San Fernando Valley in th...

Yes folks, that's me with another commission check that was a direct result of my AR blog.  Last year, I received a call from a local Realtor (not an AR member) who indicated that she had come across one of my blogs about a local down payment assistance program here in Los Angeles county.  She told me about a couple of her clients that she was working with, who were first time buyers, and she was having difficulty finding any properties in the Santa Clarita valley in their price range.  She wondered if maybe they could qualify for down payment assistance then perhaps they could afford a little bit more and this may help her find more available properties for them to consider.  I eventually met with two of her clients and pre-approved one of them for down payment assistance and the other...

Castaic home owners beware don't count on any further extension of the home buyer tax credit if you plan on buying some Castaic Real estate. The credit expires at the end of April.   Congress initially passed a $7,500 tax credit for first-time home buyers two years ago. The credit had to be repaid over 15 years, and last spring, Congress extended the credit, expanded it to $8,000 and waived the repayment provisions. The extended credit had been set to expire in December 2009, and Congress extended it once more last fall. Also, a separate $6,500 tax credit was created for home buyers who already own a home.   Luckily home buyers in Castaic the California's legislature has created a separate $10,000 state tax credit.   But industry groups now say that the tax credit has run its course. "I...

  Great news for Castaic home owners who have sold their homes through short sale.      According to the California associations of realtors homeowners will no longer have to pay California state income tax on debt forgiven in a short sale, foreclosure, or loan modification. Made law yesterday, Senate Bill 401 allows tax treatment of mortgage debt relief income with federal law. For debt forgiven on a loan secured by a "qualified principal residence," borrowers will now be exempt from both federal and state income tax consequences. The existing federal exemption is for indebtedness up to $2 million, the California exemption is up to $800,000 and forgiven debt up to $500,000. "Qualified principal residence" indebtedness is defined as debt incurred in acquiring, constructing, or substanti...

Loan modifications that could make a difference to Castaic homeowners.             Bank of America announced last week that it would begin cutting loan balances for distressed mortgage borrowers, it marked a sea change in the way lenders deal with seriously delinquent loans.             Until now, big lenders and servicers, have only given principal reductions to a very small number of borrowers.             But know there is a new kind of mortgage servicer, a specialty servicer, that is seeing success in avoiding foreclosures. They handle the worst-of-the-worst, loans at least 90 days late, and they commonly offer principal reductions.             Of course, few mortgages end up in the hands of these servicers, and whether yours lands with one is really just the luck of the draw. But m...
