ATTENTION HOME BUYERS IN SAN PEDRO CA~ HAVE YOU CHECKED YOUR CREDIT LATELY? SAN PEDRO CA REAL ESTATE~ As a buyer entering the home market at the end of 2010, you may be doing a lot of research on your own before you get serious about finding the right home.  You don't want to commit to a Realtor right now and you certainly don't want anyone hounding you to buy before you are ready right?  Maybe you have purchased a home before in San Pedro CA or some where else in the south bay like Long Beach or Rancho Palos Verdes.  You know what you are doing!  You don't need help right now. So you begin by looking at web sites like Zillow and hot pads. You go to numerous open houses and you call on signs out in front of homes with curb appeal or ones that are in your target neighborhood.  Maybe a ni...

CONDO'S FOR SALE IN SAN PEDRO CALIFORNIA~ IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT BUYING A CONDO, THIS BLOG IS FOR YOU~ Thinking of buying a condo?Things are changing more and more each day.  Last year as things were falling apart here in LA County, the window for FHA buyers became very narrow for purchases.  Especially when it came to condos.  If a building is not FHA approved, an FHA loan cannot be used to purchase that condo. In San Pedro, California there are only a handful of FHA approved condo buildings.  It is slim pickins out there for sure and Long Beach has more buildings that are approved but the ratio of approved vs not approved is staggering. It can be a little disappointing for a buyer just trying to get into their first home in this fantastic time to buy! For a little while, there was ...

I HEARD THEY STOPPED ALL FORECLOSURES! SAN PEDRO CA REAL ESTATE This is Wendy Rich-Soto, Your San Pedro Real Estate Girl! I have been really suprised lately as I have talked with different people about short sales.  One woman here from San Pedro who is currently in default sat with me for almost an hour explaning that she had heard they had stopped all foreclosures Indefinitely.  She said that she could probably stay in her home for a year or more without paying.  By then, she would be back on her feet and most likely be able to work out some sort of payment arrangement with her current lender.    The sad reality is that this is not true.  While it is true that Bank of America halted foreclosures for about 10 days to review their practices, they lifted the moratorium and got back to bus...

Sometimes, some of the coolest things are available right in your own backyard.  In San Pedro, we are blessed to have the Fort MacArthur Museum, which is dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of the history of Fort MacArthur. Fort MacArthur was the guardian of the Los Angeles Harbor from 1914 to 1974.   If you browse on the Fort MacArthur Museum website, one of the recent accomplishments is the restoration of a WWII General Electric Searchlight which was used for protection during air raids. There is an eight-minute video on the site which is worth watching, as you can see the restored light in operation. The story of the restoration is also present, and makes for very interesting reading.   If you are interested in touring the fort, check out the website - http://www.ftmac....

Today I was talking to a friend and telling him about my new 365 Things to do in Palos Verdes Facebook page. I mentioned the Little Fish Theatre that I posted about yesterday and he told me about a restaurant that I don’t personally know, but that he really recommended.The Whale & Ale on 7th St in San Pedro is (according to them) the “only Authentic British Restaurant in the South Bay of Los Angeles”. It have an oak bar and a balcony that overlooks a grand piano lounge. They have live music often and excellent food. The Yelp reviews are generally very positive. A lot of people rave about their Fish and Chips.One fun time to go is the first Thursday evening of each month, when many shops and art galleries in the area stay open late and there are street vendors and free live music. I’ll t...

One of the disappointments of my life in the last couple of years was the closing of the Neighborhood Playhouse, a delightful theatre in Palos Verdes that was housed in the Neighborhood Church but closed after a fantastic performance of Tennessee Williams’ “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” last year.So I was pleased to discover another little gem of a theatre. OK - it is not EXACTLY in Palos Verdes. It is in the neighboring community of San Pedro. BUT, I still think it is worth mentioning here.  Furthermore, it is tied to the “Shakespeare by the Sea” group that DOES perform in Rancho Palos Verdes. So, there you go.Anyway, back to Little Fish Theatre. Located at 8th and Centre in San Pedro, LFT offers contemporary, classic and original plays throughout the year. They just finished a play called “T...
