Glendora, CA Real Estate News

Well it’s up to you and your investment goals… As we know real estate investors are return and cash flow driven and most investors like to diversify their portfolio. I just heard from a friend of mine who works at a firm that under wrote the latest CA Bond Offering. He says the return is about 1.6% annualized. He also said investment length is approximately 8 months. Granted not a whopping return but for tax free, maybe alright. And that’s really all I know. I’m not a securities dealer, nor endorsing this investment in any way, but just sharing what I heard. Sort of like if you heard about it at the barber shop or nail salon. Thought this would be something different and interesting to share, than the usual commercial real estate stuff.

We all know the best way to exist and sustain yourself in the real estate industry is by receiving a steady flow of referrals. Usually a lead from a valued referral source is going to be much better than any cold call lead. You approach the referral lead with more confidence and self-assurance than you do a cold call. It’s just human nature. Being a commercial real estate broker, I realized that it is an absolute necessity to align myself with solid strategic partners who will bring value to my clients. Since my clients are generally businesses owners or top level executives I have created a team of business to business service providers that range from insurance, pay roll, human resources, IT, telephone and data support, logistics etc. The benefit is that my strategic partners and I ca...

  I'm sure every agent out there as dealt with more than one buyer and/or investor who wants to a steal a home. They think that they can offer $20,000-100,000 less than the asking price. They say they know of someone who bought a house for a song, but they can never give you enough details so that you can research its varacity. This is not to say that the professional trust deed buyers or buyers at trustee sales can't or aren't getting good or even great buys, but these are individuals or groups who are solely dedicated to this pursuit. So when the new buyer or casual investor seek out a "steal" they really have no idea that for them it's not to be had. Today the actual "steal" is in the home price. Currently in most markets home prices are hovering around 2002 pricing. That's a great b...

                                                                                                         Many Homeowners have been struggling to decide what to do with regards to their home. I have spoken with many families who have tried countless times to try to modify their homes Trust Deed with no success. I'm sure this is not breaking news to those who are reading this. However, due to upcoming changes in the Modification process it will become even more difficult to modify your homes Trust Deed. Where will that leave the Homeowner? Banks are beginning to see that it is more beneficial financially for them to accept a Short Sale rather than Foreclose on the home. Infact, I have already begun to see fewer Foreclosures and more Short Sales in my market. That being said, when is a Mod...

The challenging economy has been forcing many homeowners to ask themselves some tough questions regarding their homes. Questions like: •      Can I, or should I, keep my home? •      What will happen if I walk away from my home? •      How will my credit & taxes be impacted? •      Why did my neighbor get a modification, but I have not? •      How do I know if I qualify for a loan modification? •      How can I avoid being scammed? •      What is cancellation of debt? •      Who can I trust?                                                                                                                         Finding the answers to these questions up to now has been an even bigger challenge for many homeowners. That is why I have teamed up with the Non-Profit HELP (Homeownership Educati...

  As a professional home stager in Los Angeles, I have known very well the difference that staging a home makes in selling it quickly and for a higher price. All the while the non- staged competition sits on the market for a lot longer, enduring price reduction after price reduction. No house needs to endure this kind of humiliation, like being the odd man out when it comes time to play the game. Every house needs to get in the game and play for all it’s worth. After all, your house is worth everything to you. Now make it worth it to someone else (your home buyer.) Get it staged! Your competition is.

                                       Last weekend I was taking a walk by my home and came across a flyer advertising the openning of a new Bookstore here in Glendora, California. Both my wife and I are avid readers so I thought I would stop on by to check them out. The shop is called The Mustard Seed Bookstore. The stores owners are Lindsay & Liliana Johnson. The store features various Christian Books, School Texts, Tech and Trade Books, along with various Collectible and other hard to find books. Much of their inventory comes from their own personal collection as well as books supplied by various clients who have sold books from their private collections. After stopping by I will clearly come back and I recommend that you give them a visit as well. The Mustard Seed Bookstore is locat...

This past week we were hired to stage a very nice Glendora townhome that was seriously in need of some Los Angeles home stager love. I was contacted by the homeowner who had read a recently published newspaper profile about me in the Pasadena Star News. Click here to read Pasadena Home Stager Gets Results Another condo in her same development had gone on the market just before hers, was priced $1,000 more and was already in escrow. Her condo was vacant, the other was occupied and fully furnished, although it didn't appear to be professionally staged based on photos I saw on-line. The listing agents were not able to come by when I finished staging so I didn't get their reaction until yesterday. Here's what Linda wrote: Wes showed the condo today  and thought he was the wrong place. He co...
