Pending home sales increased again in March, affirming that a surge of home sales is unfolding for the spring home buying season, according to the National Association of Realtors®. The Pending Home Sales Index,* a forward-looking indicator based on contracts signed in March, rose 5.3 percent to 102.9 from 97.7 in February, and is 21.1 percent above March 2009 when it was 85.0; this follows an 8.3 percent increase in February. The data reflects contracts and not closings, which usually occur with a lag time of one or two months. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, said favorable affordability conditions have been working with the tax credit. "Clearly the home buyer tax credit has helped stabilize the market. In the months immediately following the expiration of the tax credit, we expect ...

Borrowers who are facing foreclosure may ask the lender to accept a discounted payoff on their loan. This is called a "short sale" or "short payoff". It allows the borrower to avoid a foreclosure action, and may offer the lender an expedited and less costly resolution of the situation.Historical trends tell us that the number of short sales has increased when changing markets soften home prices and leave homeowners with a higher mortgage interest rate or loan balance. For the consumer, negotiating a short sale with the lender may seem a daunting task, particularly at a stressful time when foreclosure looms. A short sale allows the borrower to maintain a better overall credit record than with a foreclosure. It also allows time for the homeowner to relocate on a more convenient timetable ...

Last Thursday State lawmakers passed SB 401 which will exempt borrowers who lost their homes to foreclosure or short sales in 2009 from paying state taxes.State officials say as much as 100,000 people statewide will be spared from paying tax they otherwise would owe.The bill extends the state ban from 2009 through the end of 2012. It also bans state taxes on federal stimulus grants for renewable energy projects.The bill still needs to be signed by Gov. Schwarzenegger, however a spokesman for the governor said he will sign the bill. Who is affected: Primarily, the bill affects people who had debt forgiven as they lost homes in foreclosures, short sales and deeds in lieu of foreclosure last year - and through 2012 now. Also affected: those who got loan modifications that cut the amount th...

  The history of Norco began with a Mexican Grant of land given Vicenta Sepulveda. The area of land passed through many different owners until it was purchased by the North Corona Land Company in 1921, by which Norco received its name - derived from North Corona. Since then Norco has developed much. In the 20's Rex B. Clark purchased the land. He was responsible for much of the buildings in Norco. One of the most prominent developments Clark produced was the Norconian Club and Hotel. The resort was the "in" spot for Hollywood elite as many came to relax by the 65 acre Lake Norconian or take advantage of the famous natural sulfur wells. The hotel began a downward spiral shortly after the stock market crash of 1929. The hotel was bought in 1941 and used off and on for many years as a Nava...

Does a higher SCORE in activerain makes You a better REALTOR of lender?If You were a buyer or seller............  Would You go with the one with the highest score? Is this person better? Or would You go with the one with the lowest score? Maybe the person with the lowest score spends more time marketing your property and getting the job done vs. the person scoreing high in activerain and lacking in other fields like marketing, prospecting, followup etc. Maybe the person with a 6 figures score is the person to list with(?)What do You think?

Santa Claus was caught by the local constable speeding in the back streets of Norco California on December 1, 2007.That's right just before Norco California's Third Annual Parade of Lights. An event that has drawn over 5,000 Equestrian Spectaters for the third year. The parade of lights is a parade where no motorized vehicles are allowed. Horse Drawn, Dog Drawn or People Drawn all entries can not be pulled by any motorized device. Some local residents when questioned stated; "It makes sense that the Old Claus would choose Norco Horse Town USA to warm up the old Reindeer in preperation for this years big event""It's unfortunate with Norco's Strict speed laws to protect the Equestrian way of life that Santa would get caught up in the Sheriff's Speeding snare this year"Yes it is mixed feel...
