FORECLOSURE VS. SHORT SALE Being behind on your mortgage payments and facing foreclosure are two of the most stressful financial difficulties you can face. After you've spent your life working to purchase a home but due to a variety of circumstances you suddenly find yourself under water. Phone calls from debt collectors and a bank threatening to foreclose could cause anyone to lose their mind. Let's take a look at what happens to you when your home is foreclosed on and what your other options may be.    Foreclosure When your home is foreclosed on a few things happen. You lose your home, you have to become a renter and your credit plunges off of a cliff. The only benefit is you’re no longer responsible for the mortgage. Unfortunately, if you have dreams of owning your own home again, a ...

Goals for My Real Estate Career and Family in 2014      We are now in a new age, a "Modern Technology Age". Most of us now have home computers, laptops, iPads, Smart Phones, Scanners and in rare cases still use a fax machine. My goal it to continue to become more "techy" as the year goes on. I attend real estate seminars, webinars and just went to Women's Council of Realtors where I learned a lot of new technical information to do power point presentations. This is really going to help my business grow Digital Signatures are the greatest thing that ever happened in the life of a Realtor. No matter where your client is, you can email them the documents to initial or sign with the click of a mouse. I just completed a transaction where the seller had gone out of state and she received and ...

6 Steps to Selling Your Home While it may seem like a simple task to some, especially after watching so many of those home and garden shows on HGTV and the likes.  Just fix up the place with a little paint and slap on the for sale sign, viola!  Instant success, right?  No, not really.  While the television reality shows about real estate look simple, getting the results are not that easy.  Think about the many, many, many production assistants, writers, builders, film crews that make it all happen.  Ah, yes, there is a lot more involved in preparing a home for sale.  Here is a simple video that breaks down the process: Here is the simple breakdown of the video: Step One:  Hire MeThe selling process begins with calling me.  Together we can determine how quickly you need to sell and how m...

Do You Have A New Year's Day Tradition? Ours is Watching the Rose Bowl Parade We seem to do the same thing every year. We get up early and have coffee, make our orange cinnamon rolls and get ready for the Rose Parade on TV to start. I am usually never disappointed as the B-1 Bomber or the Thunderbird's do a fly over to start the parade. This year they had the Thunderbird's flying and they did 2 fly-overs (coming and going) as it is the traditional way to start the parade. This was the 61st Anniversary of the United States Air Force starting the parade with fly-overs.     Cinnamon Rolls that were so delicious and truly a Christmas morning and New Year's Day tradition in our house. Can't start the parade until we have our coffee and rolls.             Here is my chihuahua sitting on the c...

The #1 Question After X-Mas is What to Do With Those Bad Presents First of all is there such a thing as a bad present? Yes the bulky knitted green sweater for your 16 year old son, the ugliest red sweater with Christmas balls all over it, or the purple chip & dip dish and your house is in whites/cremes. Or what about a fruitcake that tastes like it has been sitting in a cabinet for years. OH Yes...they all taste like that fresh or stale! You know what gift I am talking about as we have all had them. My grandmother always used to give me a box of soaps and I have been using liquid bath gel for years but it would hurt her feelings so I would just keep it under a cabinet. I think I still have 6 boxes of soap as I didn't have the heart to get rid of them but couldn't bring myself to tell he...

2014 is the Year to Get on the Technology Train to Be Successful 2014 is the Year to Get on the Technology Train to Be Successful Gone are the days where you could run to your office and print the contracts and disclosures and get your client to sign them. File them away in the master paper file in your office and then a few days later, run over to your clients home and get more signatures. We all did this but most of us have realized that our time is more important as well as our clients. We are now in a new age, a "Modern Technology Age". We now have home computers, laptops, iPads, Smart Phones, Scanners and in rare cases still use a fax machine. We can log onto important websites to conduct business from most any computer so we can go on vacations and still stay on top of our busines...

Inland Empire is a great region of Southern California just east of Los Angeles. This area is extremely affordable and very reasonable to live in as compared to some of the prices in the Los Angeles area. Homes for sale in the Inland Empire could be a potentially savvy investment, as this area continues to expand each and every year to include the demand for new people. The area is known for its affordable housing as well as its new industrial and commercial development that has brought a lot of jobs into this area. With beautiful views of the mountains, close access to Los Angeles and a variety of different amenities.   Commuting for work is also very easy as there are a variety of highway improvements in this area that have made transportation a lot easier to the suburbs especially if...

"Frosty the Snowman" & "Yes Virginia"- Watch on TV with your Kids Tonight Be sure to watch these shows on TV tonight, December 6, 2013 from 8-9 pm on CBS. Frosty the Snowman is an animated adaption of Romeo Mueller's story. This is a story that many of us have been watching for years. I personally love to watch this every year when it appears on TV. I find myself singing the song "Frosty the Snowman" for a day or more. One great thing about this show is that it is narrated by Jimmy Durante.   Yes Virginia is the story of an 8 year old little girl who is told by her friends that Santa doesn't exist. Virginia writes a letter to the editor of the New York Sun asking if the jolly man is real. It is a wonderful story to watch with your kids or just watch even if you don't have kids. It will ...

Are You Prepared for a Natural Disaster in Your Area Are You Prepared for a Natural Disaster in Your Area   Every year millions of people in the US are affected by natural disasters such as Tornadoes, Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Flooding, and Firestorms. Would you be prepared if this happened to you?       Here are some safety tips to help you prepare for such a disaster. Keep you gas tank half to full; never go to sleep on a empty tank. You might not be able to buy gas for days. Have water on hand for you and your family and don't forget the pets. Have spare dog food available for your pets. Keep food on hand that doesn't need to to be cooked. 1 week supply is hopefully sufficient.

Give where you live! The giving season has begun and while the national and international charities will appreciate your generosity, there are many ways to give locally that will impact your community for years to come.  One organization that I have joined this year is the Junior League of Riverside.  It is a community service organization that has contributed to the Riverside for decades.  In my opinion, it is a worthwhile way to spend my time, when I am not selling real estate. How do you give where you live?
