Attention Realtors the usda 100% loan program is back.  It is geared towards rural areas.  It is a great loan program becuase it is based on the appraised value not the purchase price so financing closing cost is still an option with this program for your borrowers than can truly afford the house but just dont have the closing cost money.  Great stuff!!!!

No matter what the market, people will continue to desire to live in Victorville, as it remains one of the most active cities within San Bernardino County. Comparatively speaking, the Victorville housing market continues to post brisk sales.  In of July 2008, 39 single family homes and a total of 0 condos/townhomes sold, down 34 from last month.  My overall view of the market is still slipping in cost per square foot while the sales numbers are stabilizing a little.

Do You have a Real Estate Business plan? Do you have a plan that will make a bank Bankroll you? Lack of clarity in business and and business plan is next to the biggest reason a business fails. I believe the first is undercapitalization. However enjoy the following. Can you identity the following in your business: Management: Who are the principals of your business, What is your area of expertise. What makes you better than your competitors. Business Purpose: What business will you do or not do. Short Sales, Reo, Traditional? Buyers only? Sellers only?  Work with teachers who are transfering to the High Desert?  How will the business benefit the community?   If you do short sales you are helping to save a family from the fallout of financial ruin.  Is there a demand for this type of ent...

The Census Bureau has released a list of the 25 fastest growing large cityies in the nation which includes 5 in California. Which Cal city is growing the fastest?

The state's fastest growing city over 100,000 population between July 1, 2006, and July 1, 2007, says the Census Bureau, was -- drumroll, please -- Victorville in the so-called "high desert" northeast of Los Angeles. In fact, it was the second fastest growing city in the nation at 9.5 percent. Read on to find out what the other 4 fastest growing cities in California are.

If you take a glass, and you fill it HALFway. Is the glass HALF EMPTY or HALF FULL??The REAL answer is NEITHER. It is COMPLETELY FULL!! The first half is filled with water that you can see physically, the second half is filled with what we CAN'T see, which is AIR.Even though that substance is right in front of our faces, we FAIL to realize it because we are focused at the substance.Likewise, in Real Estate, the is the most OPPORTUNE time to be in Real Estate. Whether you are in investing, loans, or selling properties, property management.. etc. This is the BEST time to be in Real Estate... WHY?Because all the people who wanted quick licks in Real Estate are GONE. All the chumps and all the ones who said this market is bad.. really bad are the ones who CAN'T find opportunities in the mom...

The building will be built at Ottawa Street and Hesperia Road. The exact number of jobs  for the distribution center has not been formally announced, nor has a end user.

With the wave of foreclosure barely hitting our Real Estate shores its just the beginning of a Tsunami that will be hitting the market over the next year or two. With Victorville offering some of the lowest home prices in Southern California prices will continue to drop I believe another 5-8% in the High Desert. With builders scaling back on new starts and existing homes on the market Victorville Real Estate market has been hit pretty hard on the drop in sales. I believe house prices will recover over the next 10-12 months as buyers on the sideline start to come on to the playing field and start buying. With the High Desert being one of the fastest growing areas in Southern California those who buy now are in a good position to get a great deal and move into an area that is projected to...

 We have a community in the High Desert within the San Bernardino Mountains, referred to as Spring Valley Lake. This community has around 4200 lots and was developed by a company known as Boise Cascade. There were lots divided around a lake and golf course and they started selling these lots back in 1969. Well, these lots are pretty much filled up with houses. Where can you go in the desert and find a man made lake , and golf course so close to LA.Though the people residing at this Country Club community are of different communities and different cultures they are experiencing the same situation as many of us see. The foreclosure market is hitting them the same way. One out of 41 homes have been in a foreclosure situation within the past seven months. With the crisis in the sub-prime ma...

As inventories are still stagnant and sellers are realizing that their home is not selling as easily as they might have thought. The High Desert Real Estate Market is in a battle within itself. Buyers looking for affordable housing in the high desert market our having to decide whether to buy Resale or a brand new home. Both have their pros and cons that are now being weighed out by buyers. Builders are becoming very agressive and are offering a vast array of incentives everything from closing costs to granite counter tops and landscaping packages. This puts sellers in a position to try and compete with the builders and must do something to make their home stand out in this competitive market. Pricing right is crucial and with builders having the ability to slash their prices it puts se...
