        Redman House - photograph taken by Robert Swetz 2015 When is a "Fixer-Upper" Home Beyond Fixing Up?   Here is a very large farm house in Watsonville California which is located between Salinas & Santa Cruz. When I first saw this old home 4-5 years ago, I stopped by with amazement on just how large this home is.   Well I drove by the home again a week ago, I just had to stop to take some photos. The home is condemned and is connected to large farming acreage with barns and other buildings on the property. By looking at the fence and signs around the home, it looks like either this home is going to become a Historical Landmark, or that it's going to possibly be fixed up.   By looking at the age of this home, I am going to say it's beyond fixing up. But latest breaking news on thi...

        If you have all the work you need already then maybe you don’t need to know about the FHA 203k loan program but there are allot of you out there that have been buying my eBook “Contractors and the 203k” indicating that many of you are becoming aware of this program. Why is that? Simply put “more business” than you can handle. We alwasys "give this book away" when a contractor is new to our team and have found it is a big plus for all parties. When I take on a new contractor into our “203k Team” we ask one thing of them “Stop us before you get too much work from this program”. The last thing any of us want is for you to get a bad reputation for not being able to get these projects to completion in a timely manner and we have had some that don’t know when enough is enough until we...

You can't force a real smile on your children...  You know if you try, they just give you a smile that just doesn't look like a smile.  We went to the Santa Cruz County Fair yesterday, and when he got our tickets in his hand...  He gave me this smile, and it wasn't the last that evening! You know, if you want to know if your 4 year old is having a good time...  You never get that "I'm tired of walking" or "Can I ride on your shoulders" or wanting you to hold then...  And believe me, I NEVER heard it, all night long! This fair was awesome!  It was one of the best I have attended! This truck ride was my sons favorite...  I think he rode it about 10 times! The Santa Cruz County Fair runs through September 18th, 2011. -Chris Alston

Nobody is more deserving to be a home owner in Santa Cruz County than our teachers.  As a former teacher, I great pleasure from helping teachers purchase their first home.  Heidi works as special education teacher in Watsonville and her husband works for Good Will Industries in Santa Cruz.  They were able to qualify for a fantastic program called an 80/17 through CALSTRS (California State Teachers Retirement System) The 80 means an 80% of the purchase price is a first loan. This is a fixed rate, 30 year mortgage at a competitive rate. The 17% is also a fixed rate mortgage at the same rate.  The kicker is that that the home buyer doesn't make payments on the second loan for the first 5 years of the loan. This gives the buyers 5 years to get used to their current payment and prepare for a...
