The Willowalk community is one of the newer communities in Hemet.  Willowalk in Hemet near Diamond Valley Lake is one of the nicest communities I've seen in Hemet.  This community was developed in 2005 by DR Horton and is very different from any community I have seen in Hemet. Homeowners Association fees are $185.00 per month and include access to the clubhouse, swimming pool, 4 man-made lakes with walking trails around the lakes, spa and BBQ area with security patrol cars (24 hour).   The 4 lakes inside Willowlk as well as the meandering walking paths, make this community very unique. Residents love the serene atmosphere added by the waterfalls, ducks, and other ascetically pleasing amenities that come with a gated lake community.  My new listing in Willowalk has one of the largest lot...

Short sales still an option in Hemet, California! Yes, the real estate markets in Southern California have rebounded and are consistently on a rise, but did you know that the short sale option can still be used to sell off an unwanted property you are upside-down on? Here are some very good reasons tostill consider a Hemet short sale: 1. You're still underwater. With the real estate prices rising and sales briskly moving, if you're still underwater your best option may be to short sale that Hemet home. 2. You've lost your job or source of income. Yes, Wall Street is doing well and so are many American companies, but are you? Many Americans not typically makingsix figures a year are still struggling. If you can't pay your mortgage, your best bet is a short sale. 3. You've suffered a blow...

Senior housing here in Hemet California is one of the hottest markets in Hemet.  Sure, there are new home tracts for families, and homes that have been here for decades with residents who grew up in the Hemet Valley. However, Hemet is known for it's large selection of senior communities.  On the west end of Hemet, we have a large manufactured/mobile home community, called Hemet West.  Hemet West offers golf, swimming, walking, and many other amenities.  They have a huge waterfall in the middle of the complex that is refreshing and serene. Also, on the west end of Hemet is Seven Hills, a 55+ Golf Course community.  Seven Hills has a vast array of homes.  As you enter Seven Hills, there are a few hundred manufactured homes to the right, and some patio homes right on the golf course.  Then...

The ANSWER is a Classic Rock Band that has been together and playing GREAT Rock and Roll since the 70's.  I saw The Answer play in the 70's in Parker Arizona, and then found them again in 1998, playing at a concert in the park in Covina, Ca. The Answer plays nearly every Concert in the Park in Southern California, and are in high demand.  I have seen many, many cover bands play different venues, but trust me when I tell you, there is no better band than the Answer!                                                         The Answer will be playing here in Hemet this Thursaday, July 18th from 8:00 P.M. until 10:00 P.
