203k consultants in Fremont & Union City CAWhen you look for a 203k consultant you actually should be looking for a 203k team you should seek a proven team of professionals. Your team should have the following elements to be successful:1. Lender2. Realtor3. 203k Consultant4. Contractor(s) that understands the payment procedure5. Appraiser(s) though you won't be able to communicate directly with them... NOT TRUE, but the lender's can't discuss value with them. Your consultant can discuss the repairs that are to be made if needed. In most cases the scope of work will be sufficient to keep this communication to a minimum.It is actually pretty nice to have an appraiser you can bounce things off of from time to time.We have a big advantage with 203k consulting as we were appraisers too at on...

There is not much time left to cast your vote in what may be the most significant American Presidential Election of our lifetimes.The election deadline is November 3rd at 8:00 pm.If you have not voted yet and you still have your ballot, your options are:        Mail you ballot NOW. Yet…will it be delivered on time?    Drop your ballot into a Voting Drop Box.    Deliver your ballot to the office of the Registrar of   Voters in your County.        Vote in person. I have already voted. I elected #2 and I urge you to do the same. This is my routine and has been for several years. Hand-delivering one’s own ballot instills voters with justified confidence that their vote has been cast, counted and isn’t lost in the ether. Additionally, drop boxes can be available around the clock, allowing vo...

The Annual July 4th Parade in Fremont, Ca. was cancelled in the face a world-wide pandemic. If Disneyland is closed; if you cannot visit a number of U. S. States without self-quarantining for two weeks; if you must prudently keep a distance of at least six feet between yourself and others who are not a part of your immediate household…how can you have a parade with all of the attendant hoopla and spectators?So, the non-profit Fremont Fourth of July Committee decided to stage a Porch Parade!Running from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on July 4th, with live events on Facebook every half hour, the Porch Parade offers an opportunity for citizen involvement, since anyone can participate across the city. Homeowners, residents and business are asked to dress up porches, windows, and front yards in family-f...

I Got Another Rate Quote.  Can You Beat It? Talk may be cheap, but money is not.  And you can bet your bottom dollar that most consumers seeking to get a mortgage will shop for the best rate quotes through any number of ways; their local bank, the internet, etc.  We will often get requests to match or beat rate quotes as a result.  Instead of publishing rates and promising that we're the cheapest and best source for all rate shoppers, which is something that is frowned upon by the regulators of our industry, I instead want to shed some light on some of the governing principles that guide rate quotes from any and all lending sources.  Below are three constants that apply in each case and to all shoppers for all programs. [Too lazy to read the rest?  Watch the rockin' video below for all ...

 Real estate market data for Fremont, CA provided by Janki Patel of The J-Team at Legacy Real Estate and Associates. Fremont, CA 94536 Home Prices We have seen 6 straight months of listing price increases on home prices in Fremont and don’t expect things to slow down anytime soon.  If you are considering buying a home you can still find deals on a house in Fremont but having a good real estate agent who understands the market is a must.  Don’t wait on the sidelines for too long, many of our listings are starting to sell within a few days of hitting the market.

To make sure you don't overpay for your home, you'll want to have an agent that does a thorough market analysis of the Fremont home on which y...

Alameda County Tax records shows that  a client of mine from 1999 sold her Fremont Niles home in 2004 without me as her real estate agent.  I was the real estate agent who helped her buy the Niles Canyon home back in 1999, but we had lost contact after a few missed tries to stay in touch. When I saw that she sold her Niles home in Fremont, I felt bad. Turns out, the tax records are incorrect. Recently, I received a text to voice line from a Zillow app. Something about selling her house. It was quite jumbled. After some quick digging, I realized it was my long lost client who now needed to sell her home in Niles Fremont.  She must have typed in Jeff Pereyda, real estate agent in google and "pow" there I was, now a real estate broker. She was so glad she found Jeff Pereyda, Real Estate Br...
