CREST 'BACKYARD' HOMES Welcomes Lenska Bracknell To Our Growing Team!As the ole saying goes "All Good Things Take Time". I've known Lenska, also an Active Rain member,  since the '08 real estate meltdown and recession. During that time I had the privilege of getting to know her not only as a real estate broker and investor but as a great friend. I had the privilege of meeting and getting to know her at some of her monthly Real Estate Rehab Field trips for newbie investors looking to get into the Fix and Flip biz. I was extremely impressed with her depth of knowledge and all the information she so generously shared with so many new investors trying to figure out how to enter what would become a construction rebound and fantastic real estate investment opportunity for so many. A few years...

Rain Is Coming San Diego. How's your Drainage? Are You Ready?   It looks like San Diego is bracing for what could be a wet beginning to our much needed and long overdue rainy. Albeit San Diego desperately needs rain and has gone without much of it for several years rain can be a real nuisance if you're not prepared for it.    Bad DRAINAGE OR NO DRAINAGE at all under and around your home can cost homeowners tens of thousands of dollars and insurance companies millions. Here's a few signs you could become one of those very unpleasant statistics.   In the photo above right  you can see a drain line leading to the storm drain system at the curb of the property.

Co-Signing Can Get You Into Trouble With Your Own Credit   I recently had a client who thought they had gold plated credit. They said they had  an 800+ credit rating and  had never been late or missed any payments on anything in their entire life. So I thought all was good and decided to move forward with them without an actual pre qual for the time being.   When we got to the offer stage on a property they wanted to purchase I told them that before we made an offer we should move forward with the pre qual. They seemed a little irritated and thought I didn't trust them but I told them that it would be bad for all parties should they make the offer, have it accepted and then find out they had a problem.   So they reluctantly filled out the credit app, submitted it to their lender who sai...
