I am sure that many of our fellow Real Estate Professionals in California have listed homes with a water feature or a Koi Pond.  Being an avid collector and student of the Art of Nishikigoi as well as enjoying my water gardens, I thought I would share with you.  Also, I would like to ask those who have listed or sold a home with an exhisting pond whether it hindered the sale?

In my previous post on Foreclosure ~VS~ Short Sale {Part 2} I left off with this Question.....   What are the Requirements of a Short Sale ?   The Home Owner Qualifies for a Short Sale with a Short Sale Package.   Here are the required items for a Short Sale  2 years Tax Returns ( Signed )  2 Most recent pay check stubs with YTD  Financial Statement  2 Months ank statements with bank logo  Hardship Letter   * A hardship letter is a pitty letter to the lender.

                                                                     In my previous post on Foreclosure ~VS~ Short Sale {Part 1} I left off with this Question..... Is there a Possibility Tax Consequences..... YES it could be.....    The answer is YES. There MAY be a TAX Liability created by either a FORECLOSURE or a SHORT SALE. Have the Home Owner talk to their tax advisor as we are Realtors and NOT tax advisors and not allowed to give tax advice. The Seller receives a 1099 for the DISCOUNTED amount. The IRS looks at the discounted amount as Income. Home Owner will recieve a 1099 from the lender. They can file FORM 892 if they are Insolvent and can prove it. Meaning they do not have the ability to pay it.    Senario: If the home owners income is $30,000  for the year and the discount is...

 If you are a home owner and are having trouble makeing your mortgage payment and are heading to Foreclosure, there may be other options that could be available to you. A foreclosure will leave a negative mark on your credit report and you go threw the process of your name being posted in the local news paper.  There could be another alternative to Foreclosure that you may want to concider that is called a Short Sale.  A Short Sale is where your lender will allow you to sell your home for a discounted payoff amount instead of a Foreclosure. There is a process that must be followed and this can take 45 to 90 days to get an approval. The lender will evaluate your situaltion and see which way will have the most savings to the lender. You ask why would the lender want to do a short sale ins...

Why is this date so important ?

This week I finally joined the Chamber of Commerce.  The first event that I attended was an after hours get-together where I had the opportunity to meet several wonderful people (including a fellow member of Active Rain).  I mainly joined the Chamber to help with networking, name recognition, and to become more involved in the community.  I really look forward to meeting more members and to becoming a valuable part of this wonderful organization. I wonder, what are your experiences with the Chamber and what have been the greatest benefits to you and your company? Thanks for your input!

I recently had a bad fall.  Broke my Knee and had surgery to repair my wrist.  It has been about 4 weeks now and am going crazy!!!  From training I have received I have been able to have 2 buyers wait for me to heal.  And today I got a call to list a house i prospected 2 months ago.  I also dragged my butt to a closing 7 days after my surgery.  My client of course was in total shock I showed up.  I believe I just made another raving fan, one that will bring me refferals far a time to come.  Morale too this blog...always do your best and your rewards will follow.  There will alway be someone worst off.  Be thankfull for what you have!!!!!
