 The San Fernando Valley: Awkward Moments during a Real Estate Showing!   Many people who do not know what Realtors do all day have a misconception and if I might say a false perception of what we do all day. In some respects it reminds me of what people think of Covert Agents for the government. It is humorous in a weird way. ( Photo to follow ) http://freedigitalphotos.net/   The parallels are uncanny: people think being a Realtor is a glamorous job, looking at homes all day, just as they think that being Spies is a glamorous job. The reality is far from this perception. On a side note  the Covert Operator does not want to be recognized and wants to blend in and there are humorous moments when they almost get noticed; the Realtor on the other hand most Realtors want to be seen and not...

For ages we have always considered our children when we purchase a home. We used to look at the bed/bathroom count appropriate for the size of the family, and proximity to local schools.  But gone are the days that Mom and Dad simply chose a house, packed up the family and the dog and said "It's moving day!"   Today we are raising a generation of children whose individuality, leadership, and decision making skills are encouraged more than ever. Therefore, parents are turning to the little ones for their input on homes which they are considering for a purchase.  Parents are putting much more weight and value on their children's opinion while making the big decision. I notice this trend increasing much more in recent years than I did when I began selling homes 14 years ago.     Kids, The...

How Well Do You Know Your Sherman Oaks Real Estate Market? Real estate competition in Sherman Oaks  or any town/neighborhood across the U.S. isin high gear.  Potential home sellers having been watching HGTV non-stop and believe they know just how to interview and pick the 'right' selling agent for their home.  So of course the minimum of 3-6 real estate agents are interviewed for the ultimate sale of the home in question.  Enter in the relative (and in Sherman Oaks EVERYONE has a family member who is in real estate) who is sure to put the ultimate pressure on this seller for the listing.  It is a real estate template I know well.  I have found that many other agents have no idea of the market or neighborhoods they are vying to list in.  Know little about flood zones or neighborhood attr...

Grounded a Coffee Establishment with Wi-Fi in Sherman Oaks, CA The landscape of Coffee shops has changed in the Greater Los Angeles area. I can remember when there were hardly any good coffee establishments anywhere in Los Angeles. Then there was the assent of the big green chain from Washington State. All of a sudden it was ‘cool’ and ‘hip’ to have a latte or a cappuccino in the Greater Los Angeles area. Now this then morphed into which neighborhoods could have the best coffee shops and competition just grew. All of a sudden business was being conducted in every coffee establishment that had Wi-Fi. On a side note I remember in the 1980’s conducting business with Martini’s with side carsJ. The good news is we do not drive to endanger ourselves nor our communities now days.  Then again s...

The Lobsta Truck: an impromptu meet up in Sherman Oaks, CA Diane and I were spending time with her dog and all of a sudden Diane was in the mood for a cup of coffee. Needless to say as most of you know I am always on the lookout for new coffee shops. I pulled in front of a Coffee Establishment (a blog for later) and Diane said did you see the Lobsta Truck? Well how could I miss it? I was focused on coffee establishments.    Five car lengths behind me there was the Lobsta Truck   http://la.lobstatruck.com/  well needless to say we had to stop all activity and head over there. Reluctantly we both decided we wanted just a quick cup of Clam Chowder before our coffee.  We have often had their Lobster Roll, clearly brings us back to our East Coast Days. The Lobster Roll is overflowing with Lo...

Greedy Home Sellers + Cautious Home Buyers = Flat Market    More & more indicating factors are leading us to a cooling off of the crazy hot market we experienced in Southern Cal for all of 2013. Recent surveys show that over 40% of Home Sellers this spring are planning to price their homes ABOVE market value! This strategy is not wise folks! Buyers in today's market have very little tolerance for over-priced homes this year and will likely pass them up letting listing after listing sit on the market stagnant until the Seller is forced to take action by lowering the price, or removing it from the market all together. Several Sellers are deciding to lease their unsold homes for the time being as well.    Greedy Home Sellers + Cautious Home Buyers = Flat Market   If Sellers do choose to o...

Affordability Vanishing in Prime Markets! If you want to live in one of the major metro areas across the country, you might be noticing that buying into the most popular neighborhoods is no longer feasible as the market has now corrected itself to the point that affordability is now becoming a major issue in many major markets. Some families have begun to dedicate huge portions of their monthly income to housing nowadays! Over the last several years when prices were up to 30% lower in some areas, people were able to purchase homes in areas they could only dream of only a few years prior. But now, as home prices have appreciated tremendously at a rapid rate, people's incomes have not increased along with property values so many people find themselves priced out of the market and begin lo...
