Hi All,A few days ago I rambled about preparing to walk my farm during a rainy day passing out rubber ducks.  I said I would let you all know how that worked out.  So, here goes... In the style of "Dragnet"... Dum de dum dum... This is the City... Claremont, California, the furthest edge of Los Angeles County.  A quiet collegiate town known more for its seats of higher learning than for challenges to the status quo.  But that was before today... The time, 3 PM.  The place, a small side-street just off of Arrow Highway.  I was prepared for an uneventful but damp day when I got "the call"... "See the woman, on the corner of Arrow Highway, who had her house listed last year with another agent that never sold".  I parked my Prius and hit the streets.  First up, the unsold house on the corne...

Short sales - often called "pre-foreclosure" in listings - continue to drive the market down, but the effect is exaggerated by sellers who advertise a very low price to get attention and leave it to the lender to counter offers with a higher, more realistic price.They are called short sales because the seller actually owes more than he expects to receive from the sale. In order to complete a transaction, the lender must either accept less than what is owed or proceed with foreclosure and essentially "repossess" the house. A lender often agrees to a short sale because writing off a portion of the balance owed would be a better option than taking possession of the house and then having the expense of maintaining it, without receiving any payments, until a buyer can found. By the way, a se...

"You listen to the news and it seems like everyone is moving out of California or losing their house" to foreclosure, said a friend. "It's really a small percentage of homes that are for sale now," I retorted, and we went for a drive. You know what happened. On some streets in every city, there were a number of houses for sale. But on those same streets, a larger number of homes were NOT for sale. My curiosity was piqued, however, so I went in search of statistics showing just how many households there are in the cities in my service area. On Board, a real estate information company, says there are 12,443 households in the city of Claremont. That includes apartments as well as homes, condominiums and town homes.  (If you're curious too, you can find the number of households On Board rep...
