WE'RE GROWIN' and IT IS GOOD! We're all excited. Upland will soon be heralding the addition of even more great shopping and employers. Time to shop the new Upland stores.

 Upland CA Short Sale Specialists FIND A SHORT SALE LISTING AGENT IN UPLAND CA / UPLAND SHORT SALE REAL ESTATE AGENT / SHORT SALE REALTOR UPLAND CA It is easy for Upland CA home sellers to find many listing real estate agents to list their Upland CA home, but if you need to find a Upland short sale listing agent, the task will be more difficult. A short sale real estate agent does much more than take pictures and put your Upland home in the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and put a sign in the yard. The Upland CA short sale agent also handles negotiations with your bank or banks. If your Upland real estate agent has no experience dealing with short sales, loss mitigation and bank negotiators, you, the seller, may suffer. Most of our real estate home listings and sales have been short sal...

Is Your Upland Home Underwater? Short Sale that Upland House!Upland Short Sales are nothing new. In fact, most of the Upland housing market consists of short sales these days.If you’re struggling to make your mortgage payments on a property that is worth half the value of what you purchased it for? This is NOT the American dream. No one wants to lose their home to foreclosure. And no one wants to sell them home if they don’t want to move. But doing nothing and letting the bank foreclose, or staying with a home that is financially crushing is not the way to support your family.A Upland short sale may be the best option for you. But how can you know without talking to a Upland Short Sale Expert (That’s us!)? Have you considered a loan modification instead of a short sale? That may be the ...

It's A SELLER's Market In the Upland, CA Area...... OR IS IT? By Brad Rachielles, REALTOR, CDPE. Overall, the Upland, CA area real estate market IS what you would call a Seller's market. In my service area, there were a total of 1218 homes for sale at the end of September, and 802 homes were sold in that month. The math says that there are approximately 1.5 months of inventory, and according to the graphic scale to the right, that is solidly in the Seller's Market area. Fewer Homes + Multiple Offers + Increasing Prices = a Seller's Market. BUT, WHAT IF WE CONSIDER ONLY THE HIGHER PRICED HOMES? By price range using the same formula: $800,000 - 900,000 = 10.5 Months supply $900,000 - $1,000,000 = 9.0 Months supply $1,000,000 - $2,000,000 = 14.0 Months supply Certainly, there are fewer buy...

REAL ESTATE SHORT SALE FORMULA (Read this article first, then click on the link above) Do I Qualify for a Real Estate Short Sale in Upland CA? So you're considering a real estate short sale for your Upland, California Home….. Either you are near default or have already missed mortgage payments, and you are undoubtedly under-water on what you owe on the Upland home compared to what it is currently worth.

We know there is so much information out there that its difficult to decipher what is correct, and what isn't.... and who to trust. We also know its embarrassing.

Mid-Month Market Report - August, 2012. Upland & Rancho Cucamonga, CA. By Brad Rachielles. After the close of business each month, I compile a local market report containing all of the real estate statistics anyone could want for the cities of Upland, Rancho Cucamonga, Claremont, Fontana and Ontario, CA among others. These are always posted on my BradRachielles.com web page for those really wanting All of the LOCAL facts and figures. Of great concern lately has been the amount of home inventory there is to sell. With more buyers than sellers, it is really getting hard to find matches for shoppers. July's inventory for these ten communities was at 1.5 months of inventory. That has just fallen to under 1.3 months. We need homes for these buyers I'm now to the point that when a buyer loose...

YOU CAN GIVE THE GIFT OF BETTER SIGHT - Recycle Old Glasses... PLEASE The Upland Host Lions Club is happy that we have been able to make a difference in our community.  Fund raising efforts like the very popular "Fish Bake and Corn Feed" held earlier this month at the Memorial Park have given us the opportunity to provide eye examinations and glasses to Upland students referred to us by the school nurses based upon need. This last year, over 75 Upland students received this gift of better sight and hopefully, better grades. Lions International, our parent organization, helps those beyond our local communities by providing a glasses recycling program, supported by our local club too. IF YOU HAVE GLASSES THAT NO LONGER WORK FOR YOU, PLEASE CONSIDER EITHER GIVING THEM TO ANY LION CLUB MEMB...

Local R. E. Market Compared to a Maserati - Market Stats - Upland, CA. By: Brad Rachielles Having been energized by reading a post about test driving a Maserati and other exotic high performance cars, I found my mind bouncing between real estate, then Lamborghinis, then real estate, then Astin Martins..... It's hard to stay on track. With both of these thoughts fighting for mind share, maybe I can draw some comparisons. THE SOUND OF EXCITEMENT: The Maserati - The rich sound of the engine revving starts the excitement. Local Real Estate - The sounds about real estate are creating excitement too. The national and local press, as well as my statistics, are indicating that we've HIT THE BOTTOM of the market and things are revving up. THE ACCELERATION: The Exotic sports cars: You're pushed b...

The Upland Host Lions Club says "Thank You" The 58th Annual Upland Host Lions Club Fish, Steak and Corn Feed was another great success. We could not have done it without the Wonderful Support of the Local Communities. The food was great, but the real reason for this event is to raise funds so that we can provide needed eye exams and glasses to those in our schools who may not otherwise get this care, and to support other local charities who have seen their funds dwindle as the economy does the same. We also thank the fifty or so local sponsors for their generosity and involvement in helping the community. It was truly a joint effort.

It's A Sellers Market - SHOULD YOU SELL YOUR HOME YOURSELF? By: Brad Rachielles. It's no secret. The market has changes. It's a SELLER'S MARKET! Certainly, some are thinking that they can save the commission by doing it themselves. After all, there are many stories about getting multiple offers, going under contract in just days and full priced closings. How hard can it be? Actually, now may be a very bad time not to be represented in a transaction. Consider.... A huge source of buyers are INVESTORS. They know the market well, are tough negotiators, often are represented by a Realtor, and are great at taking financial advantage of every flaw in your property. Buyers know that Owner/Sellers are not paying commissions so they expect the pricing to be lower. There goes the increased return...
