2009 Clark County Parade of Homes - Casa Bella - A sneak peek !To say that Casa Bella in the Parade of Homes sub-division of Camellia was a "labor of love" is an understatement. As you step through the grand front entrance you will be transported into another time and place. A 17th century European chateau immediately comes to mind.Closer to a work of art than a home, Casa Bella's 3800 square feet are impressed with European touches, including marble and granite counters, Venetian plaster walls and decorative columns. Heated floors bring added functionality to its castle like interior floors while the had painted ceilings with box beam accents and old world chandeliers beg you to look upward.The kitchen in Casa Bella is both elegant and functional with custom cabinets and granite count...

Clark County Has A Lot to Be Proud Of! 2009 Clark County Parade of HomesAnyone who has read a newspaper lately or watched the evening news knows that the media has been heavily preaching the "Doom and Gloom" of the real estate market. While nationally we have slowly begun to see sales rise, Clark County has shown wonderful improvement over the last six months, proving us to be one of the most resistant and more resilient markets in the nation!We ended the month of January 2009 with 21 months of inventory. That means that if no one else were to list another home for sale, it would have taken us 21 months to sell through what was currently listed at the rate that homes had been selling. Just five months later, we concluded the month of June 2009 with only 7.9 months of inventory, the lowe...

Staged homes are so pleasant to visit...but you really never know what you will find when you tour short sale homes! Yesterday I took some clients to visit homes to find some rental investment properties. We had the surprise of our lives.  We had found a street in Battle Ground that had several homes that were vacant and were for sale. We started touring a couple of these homes, making notes as we went. My client is very savvy about building and problems that homes can face. He looks at the roof, the siding; under sinks...he's making notes for comparisons all the while. He then "pencils them out" so he can tell if he can purchase that home, pay the taxes and the insurance on it and still make a profit if he rents it out.  We found one that was a cute home, 3 bedroom and about 1300 sq f...
