Here is a simple checklist for walking through a bank owned property.     Some of these things may be missing: Air Conditioner Heater Water Heater Kitchen appliances Bathroom fixtures Also check for: Sinking floors or that spongy feeling under your feet Mold smells or visual mold of any kind Look under sink cabinets for leaks and mold Water stains on the ceiling-check every room even the downstairs rooms because a leak could have occurred in an upstairs bathroom!   Many of the problems with bank owned homes are superficial and cosmetic.  Dead lawns come back to life quickly by flooding them.  Paint will fix most of the dirty walls or weird colors.   Making a list of each house you go into will eliminate trying to remember later.    The best homes with few problems do not last long.  Th...

In my never ending quest to put Temecula on the map and make outsiders aware of some of our finer points, I am today featuring "De Luz".   Going North on the I15 Freeway and exiting Rancho California Road here in Temecula can take you to two great destinations.  Going right takes you to the Temecula Wine Country and going left will take you to De Luz.      De Luz has many beautiful mansions and also is own "Crosscreek" Golf Club.          De Luz is in both Riverside County and San Diego County, extending to Fallbrook which is in San Diego County.       Just 18 miles from the California Coastline Some views from the mountain top homes will give you a view of the Southern California Coastline. Call me for information on De Luz or the Temecula Wine Country.

11-7 fraud part 3 Last blog I started a list of fraud schemes covered in Rachel Dollar's MortgageFraudBlog Conference held in Miami. We started the list with The Classic, The Straw Buyer, Air Loans and Double Sales. Here's a few more: Affinity Fraud - where the perpetrator looks to specific groups for victims. They will recruit ringleaders who have contacts at a church group, within ethnic groups, senior groups and professional groups like nurses or teachers. By virtue of the fact that they are already part of that group, they are more readily accepted and after making sure the first couple victims are treated like royalty - the rest fall like dominoes. Soliciting Investors - you've seen the signs by the side of the highway - 'We Buy Houses for Cash', 'Investors Needed' that sort of th...

  Anyone from an Investor to a First Time Buyer, should be taking advantage of this.   Buy a Brand new Home or Town-home, with  Builder incentives that make this a "no brainier", in today's housing market.   No repairs, no problems, no waiting for an answer from a bank.         Avoid the Foreclosure and Short Sale hassle!   Opportunities for these brand new homes at these prices will be gone by the end of next year or perhaps even sooner. Inventory is high now but these will be the first to go and then the only opportunities will be the re-sale, Short Sales homes and Foreclosures.  (They are also a good investment but take longer to get bank approval for the short sale and also have to be inspected thoroughly.)          Many builders have cut their sales staff and these are shown by app...

One very valued local business here in Riverside County is: APEX Pool and Spa Service owned by: Rob and Lisa Arnold  -  951 587-1504         Rob Arnold did a consultation for me at a pool home I am in escrow on.  I am representing the buyer and the pool was completely empty and the filter was not working properly when we first filled it.    Now, the pool is in full working condition thanks to Rob's assessment and service performed on the pool equipment.     Even though we had the pool inspected by the home inspector, who inspected the home. The inspector missed some vital issues with the pool equipment that Rob discovered and repaired.    My clientis extremely happy with Rob's advice and thorough service.    I also own a pool home in Temecula that I am currently renting to tenants and ...

  My husband Mark and I have been lucky enough to live in Temecula/Murrieta Valley for 20 years.  And over those 20 years we have enjoyed many great local events.  This weekend in Temecula Valley Wine Country is one of our BEST events/traditions held by the Temecula Valley Winegrowers Association!  Trust me, if you are a wine lover you DO NOT want to MISS the Harvest Wine Celebration.  Lot's of fun people, yummy food, beautiful views, oh yeah....and GREAT WINE! You get the opportunity to visit 22 wineries (10am-5pm) once over 2 days and sample great wine and fab food for only $89.00!  The toughest part of this event for me is trying to decide which wineries to visit!!  Sure you can hit them all up within 2 days (my math tells me that's about 11/day...YIKES) but be sure to have a Designa...

  I had the pleasure of meeting Robert Renzoni a while back at Francesca's Italian Kitchen in Temecula. He told me to come see his winery and this past Saturday, I did. Word has gotten out as the tasting room was packed, and I'm not surprised. Robert makes several outstanding wines and also makes visitors to his winery feel right at home. Laura and I tasted several of his wines including chardonnay, rose, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and his newest addition the 2006 Super Tuscan blend "Fiore di Fano". It hasn't been released for sale yet as he is waiting for the labels to arrive, but we purchased a bottle that he signed for us.     If you haven't visited the Temecula wine country lately, come see some of the newer wineries. You'll be very glad you did. Here's a picture of ...

Yesterday my BFF Laura and I had the pleasure to relax and stroll along the sidewalks of charming Old Town Temecula.  We always try to pretend we are on vacation and look through "tourist eyes" which help us explore a little further out of our comfort zone....you know, favorite local restaurants, specialty shops and wineries.  Ha!  We were quite the adventurous duo,  we had to walk only a few steps off of Front Street...the main drag of Old Town.  And boy am I glad we did!   We found a great Old Town Temecula addition when we stumbled into Jack's Nut's! A store full of...you guessed it..NUTS!  Located at 42072 Fifth Street, Suite 106, Temecula, CA.    We were greeted by the owner's Claudia & Jack Keaton.  A great friendly and helpful couple originally from Michigan and married 38 years....

10-20 komen race October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month across the country. Yesterday our local Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure event took place at the Promenade Mall with over 10,000 participants. I MC'd the first local race back about seven years ago when our goal was to get 1,000 people to participate. While the goal of Susan G. Komen is to eradicate breast cancer and take away the need for events like this, unfortunately both the need and the event grow larger every year.   This years race was a special one. My daughter, Tara, put together a team of friends and co-workers to race in celebration of her mother. Aside from being saddled with me for an ex-husband, Linda is a terrific person. She owns and publishes the highly successful Valley Business Journal, has been awarded Small...

Priced from $269,000 to $350,000 - Great first time buyer or investment opportunity! If you are tired of trying to purchase short sales only to be disappointed by not hearing anything from the lender then call me for information about these incredible homes. You will not have to wait for approval from an asset manager. I have scouted the area to find great deals on builder close-outs.           As low as $89.00 per square foot in great areas that will appreciate. New Construction, No repairs, No hassle!
