Figure 1 before a 203k consultant was involvedMost 203(k) consultants are presented like a football team’s offensive coordinator – a point guard that runs plays on a basketball court and a star infielder – all in one the point is working as a team!. Seem like an exaggeration? When it comes to 203(k) consultants the comparison is accurate: these professionals really know the HUD and Fannie Mae Guidelines and prove to be the most valuable member of the Renovation Loan Process that helps out when you buy a home and make major repairs with a standard FHA 203K renovation loan – also called a Consultant K* loan or the Home Style Loan.When you buy a property that needs structural repairs and/or needs repairs, you are talking about projects that may require professional experience and expertise...

  The home inspection is a visual inspection. and many of the problems will show up in the digital photos that are taken doing the inspection. As with the photo here walking on this roof will crumble this very dry roofing material and this digtal photo will more than give a idea of the roof condition.  As with all areas of the house, we recommend that you carefully examine the roof immediately prior to closing the deal. Note that walking on a roof voids some manufacturer’s warranties. Adequate attic ventilation, solar / wind exposure, and organic debris all affect the life expectancy of a roof (see for roof info). Always ask the seller about the age and history of the roof. On any home that is over 3 years old, experts recommend that you obtain a roof certification from an e...

 California Heights in Long Beach, CA - A Historical City Treasure!      California Heights is one of my favorite historic Long Beach, CA neighborhoods! If there is an area that says "lovely" this is it!  You'll know you're in California Heights when you start to see the beautifully restored antique lamp posts.  There are many style of homes to be seen in the area, such as the Tudor, 1938 Ranch and the occasional Craftsman Bungalow.  But what I'm most partial to, are the many Spanish Revival homes that feature red spanish tile roofs, welcoming terra cotta courtyards and vines growing over arched doorways.  To enchant you even further, you'll see these historic California Heights homes while driving down picturesque tree-lined streets that have trees reaching across the street to one ano...

Long Beach, Ca.  Twenty thousand State employees will receive their termination notices this week.  Considering there are over 200,000 State employees, that may not be a bad thing.  There is a great brouhaha in Sacramento as State Senators fight it out over the new fiscal budget, which will have over a 40 billion dollar deficit by next June.  Unthinkable as it seems in a recession, the State politicos want to raise taxes by 14 billion.  There is rebellion amongst certain California Counties who do not want to send the State anymore money until they get their act together.  It is like watching frustrated passengers argue over who gets which deck chair on the Titanic.   Although it has never happened, murmurs of a State bankruptcy can be heard.  This type of volatile market is forcing peo...
