Why does the third richest man in the world (Warren Buffett)  think that Riverside first time home buyers like you should get off the proverbial fence? Because owning your first home in Riverside is the best way to increase your net wealth! Unfortunately too many first time home buyers pay way too much attention to short-term price changes. They're so worried that prices might drop a little and feel that maybe they should wait to buy something. Of course if you think you can predict the future  then by all means roll the dice! However, the reality is that price, within reason, really should be a secondary matter in your search for a good property to purchase. In 2020 or 2022, you won’t even remember the 2012-2013 price fluctuations. You’ll just be gloating to yourself how brilliant you ...

It is still not settled even in today's climate of buying and selling this title post question of mine. I still get inquires from buyer agents and principals who just haven't tamed or answered this vital question. The right answer makes you a player and the lack of one a dreamer and a waster of timeARE YOU QUALIFIEDI ran into an agent or two the other day that when I asked if their buyer was qualified, they hesitated and stuttered. Without answering they answered. The whole conversation went another way after that. I have had principals and even investors come my way thinking that they can maneuver past this question no problemANSWERS ABOUND BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOOD ONEMy question to a buyer agent of..."how do you know they can perform" solicits different responses. I still have agent...

Southern California Real Estate The Southern California real estate market has been extremely volatile in the past few years, from foreclosures, short sales and standard sales as well. But Southern California real estate transactions are still happening in spite of the market crash and tough market conditions. While it is true that many unfortunate Southern California homeowners are losing their properties to foreclosure, foreclosing banks and lenders are not in any hurry to list their Southern California foreclosed assets for sale. Banks have slowed the resale of their Southern California foreclosures to a trickle to keep the real estate marketplace competitive for buyers and to not flood the supply. It is a great time to buy Southern California real estate if you have the resources t...

Riverside California Listing Agents – Sell My House in Riverside CA So you’ve decided to sell your house in Riverside California. There are many factors to consider when entering into such a transaction. First, in tumultuous times like these, you must first determine what type of sale you will need. Are you selling a Riverside property with equity? In another words, do you owe less than what the property is worth? If so you will be conducting a standard Riverside real estate sale. This type of sale obviously is the best scenario because you should come out of the deal with a margin between the sales price and any money owed on the Riverside CA home, minus the cost of sale. Do you owe more on your Riverside House than it’s worth? Like many Americans, the real estate market has put severe...

Corona Riverside Fixer Upper Homes and Bank Repo Homes are definitly priced below market value.  But do Buyers really realize what they are getting themselves into on these properties?  Me speaking from experience when I purchased my first home it was a fixer upper.  And because it was my first home I didnt realize how much everything costs like new carpeting, tile, even paint.  Nobody wants a moneypit but that is what some of these homes are.   You dont realize that all of this adds up and unless you have an extra, 15K or more sitting in a bank account then these homes are not for you.  Corona Riverside Fixer Upper Homes and Bank Repo Homes that need alot of work really can drain your bank account.  And is it worth it?  With the lending institutions strict guildliness on 2nd mortgages ...

Here is my weekly Wednesday Wordles from Wordle.net. Each week I am going to have a theme and make a wonderful Wordle. Tonight, my theme is “Dogs” and next week I am doing “Cats” as I adore them both and every week I will have a new theme. Last week it was all about ActiveRain, blogging and my favorite subjects like nature, birds, animals, and real estate.    Here is my Wednesday Wordles and I think it came out very nice. I edited it in Picknik to add a frame, add a title and my signature. So what do you think?   This is how I did it. I just typed in some words all relating to my theme on a word document. Plus I changed a few words color, added quotation marks and tilde(~) mark between two works I wanted to keep together, and made some capitalized and others lower case. I then just slid...

I drove past this bell which is located up on a hill. So I turned around, drove back and stopped up at the top. I noticed many visitors there including kids, families and sightseers. It is a lovely place to visit. If you get a chance, stop by and take a picture. This Korean Bell of Friendship and Bell Pavilion is located at the Angels Gate Park,  3601 S. Gaffey Street, San Pedro.   Sitting peacefully on the knoll which extends from the San Pedro side of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, the Korean Bell of Friendship attracts hundreds of visitors with its massive size and pagoda like stone structure.  This work of art was donated in 1976 to the people of Los Angeles by the Republic of Korea to celebrate the bicentennial of the U.S. independence, honor veterans of the Korean War, and to recogni...

This morning we had a big storm but by this afternoon we had a slight break. The rain stopped and the sun peeked out from behind the clouds for a few minutes. I spotted a lot of hungry birds trying to find food before the next leg of the storm came rolling in. They seemed to all be fighting over a spot on the bird feeders. I have never seen such a crowd. This bird was making a lot of noise and just before it flew off, another yellow bird showed up in the tree. They did not wait for their picture. Some more photos to share. I thought this was an owl but as I got closer I realized it was just a big Mourning Dove.                Call Kristin Hamilton at 909-557-6966 to list your home.

What is a Short Sale?   A short sale is when a homeowner sells their house for less money than they owe on the mortgage or mortgages. Short selling is an alternative to foreclosure for homeowners/borrowers who can no longer afford to keep mortgage payments current. Sometimes, to avoid going through the costs of foreclosure, a lender will authorize a short sale by allowing a homeowner to sell the home for less than the mortgage owed.     Simplified Steps of a Short Sale: Homeowner signs a listing agreement with a real estate agent. This short sale listing agreement is subject to third-party/lender approval. The home is marketed to buyers. Seller accepts a buyer's purchase offer subject to the lender's approval. Seller's lender accepts the buyer's purchase offer, which is less than owed o...
