Cherry Hill at Moorpark Highlands   Located just North of Moorpark, California is one of the few remaining new home tracts in what is called the Moorpark Highlands. The Moorpark Highlands is a very large area of new homes which includes a number of different tract communities built by several distinguished home developers. Ranging in ascending order of size and price these include Pardee Homes - Waverly Place condominiums (sold out); KB Homes - Sterling Heights Community of single family homes (sold out) and Toll Brothers - Country Club Estates at Moorpark (sold out).   I may be missing a tract or two, tucked away among the two massive hilltop areas, but Cherry Hill by Pardee Homes appears to be the last major new home development still actively building new 3 to 5 bedroom homes.   Cher...

Wide angle lenses and architectural photography have always gone hand in hand. The problem is that most point and shoot cameras can only shoot so wide. I found a reasonable solution is the magnetic wide angle lenses available from Magneticlenses.com. https://www.magneticlenses.com/  These lenses attach magnetically to your point and shoot camera. I have one for my Sony DSC and it works great. They will dramatically improve both your interior and exterior shots. Great for landscapes as well Rudy

We've all heard about "Phantom Inventory" and the next "Wave" of foreclosures and subsequent REO's, but right now Short Sales are the thing. In my Market, they're everywhere. About six months ago we saw a slowdown in REO's due to loan modifications, moratoriums and Short Sales. I sent query letters to all of the asset management companies that I work for to see what their thoughts were about managing Short Sales. I received a mixed review. Mostly comments like,"we've considered handling Short Sales but are not currently interested, thank you for your foresight".  Well, things are starting to change. Finally......... at least one progressive asset management company IS MANAGING SHORT SALES! Check out PMH Financial's new site! http://www.shortsaleapproval.com/index.html I applaud them for...

 First Time Homebuyer Credit Extended - NOW It's Official ! Tax Credit for Homebuyers First-Time Homebuyers (FTHBs): First-time homebuyers (that is, people who have not owned a home within the last three years) may be eligible for the tax credit. The credit for FTHBs is 10% of the purchase price of the home, with a maximum available credit of $8,000. Single taxpayers and married couples filing a joint return may qualify for the full tax credit amount. Current Owners: The tax credit program now gives those who already own a residence some additional reasons to move to a new home. This incentive comes in the form of a tax credit of up to $6,500 for qualified purchasers who have owned and occupied a primary residence for a period of five consecutive years during the last eight years. Singl...

Most of you wouldn't know, but I volunteer in my son's Kindergarten classroom for 2 hours every Monday morning and I am also the "Classroom Parent".    A month or so ago a new boy came to the class that I immediately could feel that something was "off".  Every Monday morning, I make a point to make sure that I wash his face for him, try to comb his hair,  etc. Yesterday morning while doing my weekly lessons with the class he came to my table and sat down. His finger nails were black with dirt; obviously they had not been trimmed for WEEKS, maybe months, and this morning his hair was so bad that I don't think he had been able to take a bath in at least a week. His name is Branden, he will be 6 next month.   While leaving the table to move on to the next lesson Branden's shoe fell off and...

OK - You have a listing that is full of furniture, collectables, books / magazines, CD's, pet beds, etc. and you've asked the Home Owners to "de-clutter".  The problem is, you don't want to offend your client, yet they can't seem to grasp the idea of cleaning, packing and beginning the process of moving. The real problem is that 90% of sellers cannot differentiate what is clutter and what is not; the eye becomes used to what it looks at every day. What's worse, how many times have you asked to remove furniture or "start packing" only to come back upon your next visit to find the garage now overflowing? Here is where Platinum Home Staging, Inc. can REALLY be a valuable tool and asset to make your job as the LREA that much easier.    As an unbiased third party, we will professionally and ...
