A Short tale of purchase and an HOA nightmare. A buyer of mine purchased a Coach in an existing land owned senior, co-operative mobile estate of 62 units, with the land owned by the co-op, the homeowners owning their coaches and a share of the co-op.  The puchase was a seller financed transaction, with a large cash down payment. Seller and Buyer were in agreement as to the terms. The Buyers followed the required protocol and met with the board "HOA" for approval. All went well at the meeting until the Buyers were asked for their Identification to verify their ages, and it was discovered that they were not married. Suddenly there were comments made by a member of the Board, specifically, "This is not the Love Boat"! The Buyers were taken aback, but maintained their dignity and continued ...

I am  fortunate enough to live in a town that has all the shopping I need, but also has some interesting characters around town.  I thought I would share some of the locals of Hemet, CA. For instance, this lady lives just right around the corner from me..... She has seven other siblings that look just like her... And, this guy lives in the hood, as well........... And then, if I walk my grandson to school, we pass by these ladies, and stop for a chat along the way.... Of course, among these characters, there are horses, a brahma bull, a donkey, dozens of sheep, an antelope, and several buffalo. You never know what you will see in Hemet, CA.

I love being able to blog about this topic. I recently listed a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in the guard gated community of Four Seasons in West Hemet. I took the listing, recommended a list price, the seller agreed to my list price, as they always do, and I proceeded with inputting the listing onto the MLS This part never changes. I always fill in 100% of MLS data regardless if it is required to input the listing or not! I always use the full 500 character description, and input the maximum amount of photos (25 on the IMRMLS). My photos are taken by our in house photographer, who trained himself, he does use a very expensive camera along with a photo editing program, but the difference with him vs. other photographers: I get 50-100 high resolution photos to pick and choose from, whereas...

(Day 16 in the 30 in 30 challenge!!) In a recent webinar I watched, the presenter talked mostly about how to find AND work your niche'.  What he meant was to find a group or community in your city, neighborhood, area, etc. and market specifically to that group. Now the city where I live, Hemet, CA, back in the day, was a retirement community.  Most folks moved to Hemet, CA to retire.  In fact, there are more banks per capita in Hemet, CA than most towns in the U.S., or so I am told.  All those retirees needed somewhere to stach their cash.  And, as you drive up and down the main drag, there is a bank on nearly every corner. Now in recent years, many of the younger generation have moved to Hemet, CA, because it is less expensive to live here than some of the more populated areas closer t...

One of our flippers will get an unexpected face-lift on Friday.  Big Bertha The Magnificent Pine is to be brought down Friday morning.  This humongous pine has got to be 100 ft tall and is likely somewhere between 45 and 50 years old.  On Monday, she had a branch the size of a large tree come down into the neighbors Mulberry tree next to the front corner of their driveway.  The huge branch hovered over the neighbors home and had been a major cause of concern for the neighbor for many years.  When it finally broke, it spun away from the house and went 90 degrees across the yard and landed on top of the Mulberry.  It looks like a bridge 30 ft in the air from tree to tree.  Thank God it didn't land on the neighbors home... that could have got ugly.                                          ...

The importance of great photos can never be underestimated! We chose to hire a photographer to shoot our homes as we feel the difference between traditional photos and photos taken and professionally edited is night & day. It can be the difference from your listing sitting on the market 1 day vs. 30-90 days! Buyers eyes immediately go to the vidid colors, and the "cartoon" feel as I like to call it. I feel in a down market, with less buyers and more sellers, the only way to stand out from the competition! Go the extra mile, take photos worthy of a magazine cover whether the home is a $50,000 home or a $5,000,000 home. You owe it to the sellers, to the family that entrusted you with selling their property in the shortest timeframe while getting the highest possible net. Look at the photo...

I was reviewing comparable listings on a project we listed just last week in the Four Seasons 55+ community of Hemet when it brought a huge smile to my face. I was unsure of what price to go out at as the listings in that community are all over the place, from the 130,000 range to the 200,000 range. I realized that about 75% of those were short sales, which I do not consider competition. I then chose to see only Standard and Bank Owned homes, as those are homes where the seller has the ability to sell without needing approval of some sort. The following results made me jubilant (Yes, I get excited easily). There are 11 standard and 9 REO listings inside Four Seasons, which is a private guard gated community on the west end of Hemet. The lowest Standard listing was listed at $139,900 an...

In football, there's the Super Bowl.  In Baseball, there's the World Series.  But for high school bands, there's the Bands of America Championship.  This is BIG, really BIG, for high school bands across America. Here in Hemet California our West Valley High School, sees as an even a bigger deal. West Valley High School has been chosen as the site for the Southern California and Southwest regional championship on October 23rd..Earlier this year, T. J. Hepburn, the school's band director received a contact from officials for Bands of America.  Turns out that they  saw the school's Website. On the site, they saw the aerial photograph of the school itself.  Seems this school site would be perfect for the competition. Wow, what an honor, not only to be the chosen site, but to also be one of ...

Hemet, CA.  The Western Science Center, located at 2345 Searl Parkway in Hemet, CA is full of education, fun and excitement. This state-of-the-art museum complex has something for everyone.                     This museum is home to a vast array of history and ice-age beasts which have been unearthed here at Diamond Valley Lake.  Max, is the largest mastodon ever found in the Western United States, as well as Xena, a Columbian Mammoth. You will have a very eerie feeling when you walk on the temperer glass which has been placed over the "Little Stevie" exhibit, which is a large mastodon that has been re-buried beneath the museum floor to re-create the actual dig site. You will also see exhibits such as saber-toothed cats, dire wolves, and many more artifacts.  As I said, there is somethi...

Hemet is an old little town, and has all the charm of an old town.  One of the charming little places to go, should you be visiting Hemet, is the Hemet Museum, located at State Street and Florida Avenue, right in the heart of downtown Hemet.              The Hemet Museum is housed in the historic Hemet Train Depot right in the center of town.  The Hemet Museum houses many fine exhibits of old historical Hemet.  You can see agricultural displays, Native American displays and artifacts, railroad items, rare photos, treasures from the famed Ramona Pageant, and much much more.  One of the recent items added to the collection of the Hemet Museum is a "CREAM SEPARATER".

  DO YOU KNOW HOW A HEMET, CA SHORT SALE WORKS??   Each bank processes short sales differently, and we have had great success with many banks, but to better understand your individual situation and to decipher if you would be a good candidate for a short sale we would review your following information:     How many loans do you have on the property? If more than one loan, who are the banks the loans are with, or who are the mortgage holder(s)? Have you stopped making payments? If yes, how long ago? Have you attempted a loan modification? If yes, what is the status of the modification? Does the property have a HOA (Home Owner's Association)? If yes, are you behind on the HOA dues? If yes, how many payments missed? Is the property in a 55+ community? Was the property your primary residenc...
