BEL-AIR BEVERLY HILLS PO BEVERLY CENTER/MIRACLE MILE BEVERLYWOOD                       Your laundry room is another place that can consume a great deal of energy. Here are a few ways to reduce that: Energy-efficient washer: Typical washing machines can use as much as 40 gallons of water a load—energy-efficient washers, such as ENERGY STAR models, can use half of that. Only wash and dry full loads: Similar to dishwashers, washers and dryers use a great deal of energy, regardless of their contents—so be energy efficient and use full loads (or adjust settings accordingly).

 It appears that the Temescal Water Project may have some opposition! When I first heard about this project, I was elated that finally something was being done to control or stop the runoff into the ocean. I lived in Santa Monica for over 2 decades and can say that when there was a heavy rain, it was very bad for the ocean! Here is the article from the Palisadian Post... March 05, 2009 Sue Pascoe , Staff Writer Everyone agreed last Wednesday about the quest to protect Santa Monica Bay from polluted stormwater, but residents challenged the City's preparations for the proposed $15.9- million Temescal Stormwater Diversion Project. Appearing at a public meeting in the Palisades Branch Library community room, Heal the Bay President Mark Gold and Palisadian Fran Diamond, chairperson of the Lo...

Happy Thursday everyone! Here is more green tips for making your kitchen environmentally friendly... Between the refrigerator, oven, microwave, and lights, kitchens can consume a lot of energy, but here are some ways to reduce your kitchen's energy usage and save some money: "Right size" your appliances: The larger your appliances, the more energy they consume. And, large appliances take up more space, meaning you'll need to heat and cool additional square footage to accommodate them. Finding the "right size" appliance to fit your needs-instead of just buying the largest one available-can help you to save energy. Replace old refrigerators: If your refrigerator is more than 10 years old, it might be time to consider replacing it. Old refrigerators can account for up to 15 percent of a ho...

 Did you know that in the United States, homes are responsible for 21 percent of the nation's greenhouse gas emissions? That fact, plus rising energy costs and a decision by California's Public Utilities Commission mandating that new housing developments are "zero net energy" by 2020, has caused consumers, homebuilders, homeowners, property managers, REALTORS®, local governments, schools, and others to focus on the energy-efficiency of homes and buildings.That's why real estate is a green issue. As these groups and individuals seek ways to reduce the energy costs of homes, even more emphasis will be placed on eco-friendly designs and cost-savings. If you are a homeowner, there are steps-most are relatively easy-that you can take to make your home more energy-efficient; if you are a futu...

 Although certifications are necessary to officially designate a home "green," anyone can make their home and their lives greener. A home's individual green features are what make it environmentally friendly or "greener." An environmentally friendly home is a home that-compared with a standard home-uses less energy, water, and natural resources; creates less waste; and is healthier for its inhabitants. Homes can be built green-conscious, or they can undergo green enhancements (eco-conscious alterations or remodels) after they are created. A home that is eco-friendly should encompass one or all of the five key green principles outlined below and should:*  Conserve natural resources*  Use energy efficiently*  Have improved indoor air quality relative to normal building standards*  Create ...

This article in LA times caught my eyes because it is a great benefit to a lot of my clients who are 1st time home buyers and could benefit from this tax credit. Maybe it can buy a few pieces of new furniture and a 62" LCD TV for the new home. On January 15, the House Democratic leadership outlined its $825 billion economic stimulus package, loaded with $275 billion in tax cuts and $550 billion in new spending on healthcare, education, and alternative energy and infrastructure improvements. In the tax section was a significant improvement to last July's congressional effort to stimulate home sales. It offered a credit of as much as $7,500 to buyers who had never bought a house or hadn't owned one during the last 3 years. To qualify, taxpayers would need to complete a home purchase betwe...

Today is the 1st day on Lunar Calendar which is the Chinese New Year, year of OX. Here I wish everyone a happy new year 新年快樂 (pronounce "Sun Nin Fai Lok" in Cantonese) and 恭喜發財 (Kung Hei Fat Choi). I learned that Kung Hei Fat Choi is the 1st thing everyone says to each other in Chinese New Year. It translated to "Congratulations and be prosperous", which is a great thing to say especially in Real Estate business. There's also a lot of four word phrase that Chinese say to greet each other. Like wishing you: 身体健康 Good healthy year. 心想事成 May All Your Wishes Come True 生意兴隆 Business Flourishes 岁岁平安 Peace All Year Round 和气生财 Harmony Brings Wealth 心想事成 May All Your Wishes Come True 吉祥如意 Everything Goes Well 国泰平安 The Country Flourishes And People Live In Peace 招财进宝 Money And Treasures Will He ...
