Placentia offers some solid multiple unit rental investments in this market.  4-Plexes in particular are giving the investor very good possibilities.  In addition the lenders are set to give the lowest rates that we have seen in years -- now may be the moment, what are we waiting for ?(surely not for lower rates or prices, that is unlikely)?

Veterans looking to buy real estate in Placentia may not know about the loan opportunities available to them.  Often buying a home is the first step in transitioning back to civilian life, and VA loans are one way our great nation helps veterans to do just that.  Here are some important facts about VA loans that veterans, both old and young, can use in their home search.  The Veterans Administration (VA) does not make loans.  It guarantees loans made by an approved institutional lender, much like the FHA.  The main differences between the two government programs are: 1)      Only an eligible veteran may obtain a VA loan. 2)      The VA does not require a down payment up to a certain loan amount.  Both programs were created to assist people in buying homes when the conventional loan pro...

Do you wait until something happens to you? or do you make things happen?  That is the difference between successful agents and the ones that eventually leave the industry. Do you watch the news and get down on yourself?  Yes it happens to all of us.  Bad news sell, good news doesn't.  If you constantly watch the news you are going to have a very difficult time motivating yourself.  Read an inspirational or motivational book instead.  It is fine to be informed but not until you get pessimistic. Plan your day around activities that are conductive to reaching your goal.  Have a clear goal in mind.  Determine which activities you are good at and perfect them.  Work even harder on those that you need to improve on.   This is a great market!  And there are great opportunities for buyers, you...

There are 5 things you can do when you realize you can no longer make your mortgage payments: Nothing Deed in Lieu (Hand the Title, and keys, back to bank) Short Sale Bankruptcy Loan Modification All of these options will adversely affect your credit.  However, some options ARE better than others. For example, the on the severity scale of how bad your credit will take a hit, on a scale of 1 to 10, an outright foreclosure or bankruptcy is like an 11.  The Deed in Lieu is probably the dumbest thing to do because the bank will let you stay in the home rent free for a while anyhow while you work this all out. A Loan Modification is the best route to take, but you have to know what you're doing.  There are only a handful of legitimate Loan Modification companies out there that know how to ha...

Placentia as a whole is just amazing.  The city offers a variety of options.  Not the least is the Placentia real estate, and for sure don't forget the great dining in downtown.  Many people drive from South County or from the beach, just to eat at the authentic Mexican restaurants.  My personal experience is that the food is exceptional, the prices are very modest, and the environment is clean, neat, and quite authentic.  Drive to downtown - it is a very nice trip.

Although Placentia is not a very large city, it has a lot happening.  Placentia real estate ownership will give the astute buyer loads of great housing opportunities as well as cultural diversity, convenient and fine dining, good schools, and a strong community spirit.  Many very good buys are now on the market, with Placentia offering one of the best prices per square foot of living space.  We are directing the real bargain hunters to look closely at Placentia.

Placentia real estatemay not be as well known as some of the surrounding areas, but real estate in Placentia should definitely be in the cross-hairs of most North Orange County home buyers. People looking to move to one of the surrounding cities will often fall in love with the quiet suburban neighborhoods and all-American feel of Placentia real estate. Regardless of whether or not it was the original destination for residents, Placentia is a place that people are proud to call home. This underestimated quality helps the town rate very well on our Orange County real estate area rating system and prospective buyers really owe it to themselves to further investigate this charming city.

Consumers are starting to do the math.  A 1% lower loan rate, on say a $400,000 home loan, translates into a $4000 a year savings on interest.  That is a $333 a month difference in payment.  That is not small change to the homeowner.  With loan rates now below 5% for home loans, the buyers are really getting excited about their ability to get "the" house or "more house" for the same money.  But it may not last forever -- and a raise in rates (which may come) will hurt the buyers drastically.  It is a double edged sword.  So --- buyers, now is the time to act.

Today we got a call from a potential client who shocked us with his attitude.  He is really not highly motivated, but he is totally realistic.  He wants to see his house at a "fair" price - not expecting top dollar of yesteryear.  He knows he over improved his home, but he says he did it for himself, not as an investment.  In fact he made the following observation. " Look, Bob, if I had sold my house two years ago at the top of the real estate market, I would have put the cash in the stock market.  That would have shrunk by 40% at least.  So the real estate market being down by 25-30% is still a better deal."  It is refreshing to hear realistic sellers are still out there.
