For Stevenson Ranch first time home buyers it is a very exciting time, you have just finished escrow and are all moved in. Now the mail starts coming and you notice letters that appear to be from government agencies telling you that you need someone to help you to file a Declaration of Homestead. Your asking yourself 1. what is a Declaration of Homestead? and 2. there are more fees? I thought I was done with all the fees associated with buying a house in escrow!

A Homestead helps to protect you from losing your house to people you owe money. If you are sued for money in court and lose, the person who sued you will receive a judgment from the court. If you d...

Condo owners in Stevenson Ranch not only share common walls and roofs, they also share one anothers financial burdens. Lending practices are constantly changing which is forcing lenders to look more closely at the makeup of entire complexes before they fund loans to prospective buyers or to people who have equity and want to refinance.With the ever changing real estate market it's making it tougher to buy and sell condos, which are widely considered the housing market's shakiest segment because they are popular with entry-level buyers.
