Which matters more to your wallet? Home price or interest rate?/West Hills Ca-First Time Home Buyers-Real Estate   If you know someone who’s waiting for home prices to drop even further before they buy, you might want to clue them in to the impact financing changes may have on those low prices:     Which do you think matters more when waiting for the right time to buy a home? Is it securing a low purchase price, or locking in a great financing rate?         Most buyers become focused on purchase price when they’re considering whether or not to buy. The question you often hear is the same: “Has the market bottomed out yet?” The idea of getting “the best deal” on a home is paramount to these price shoppers, and indeed for cash buyers, this may be the primary concern.               While n...

Get protected! Get your “stuff” in the cloud-West Hills Ca- Real Estate How are you protecting your home’s possessions?    What’s your strategy for keeping a home inventory in case of a disaster?   I just came across this great idea for using “the cloud” to protect your belongings:    We don’t like to think about the unthinkable happening, but being a responsible homeowner means preparing for the worst.     One fire or burglary can send us back to square one, and getting life back on track as fast as possible becomes our top priority.     Homeowner’s insurance is there to make sure that when the worst happens we’re able to recover. One place many people are notoriously lax, however, is in keeping a thorough inventory of their home’s many possessions. Often those who do keep an inventor...

Property tax scams-West Hills Ca Homes-Woodland Hills Real Estate Just thought you might want to be aware of the property tax reduction scams that are going around these days. You can get your property taxes reduced through an appeal process with the tax assessor, but don’t fall for the rest:      Granted, the offer can be tempting. The basic pitch is this: “For a nominal fee, we’ll save you hundreds or thousands on your tax bill by having your home appraised at a lower value.” You do “nothing” but pay an administrative fee.    Don’t fall for it! If you want to try and have your property taxes reduced, you can usually file an appeal with your tax assessor. The process is often only the minor inconvenience of filling out a form to request an adjustment. (Clearly, there’s no guarantee thi...

West Hills Real Estate- Relocating? Five tips to plan your exploratory visit the right way   Are you considering a move to a new city? Maybe you’re trying to make the choice between two or three potential options. If so, how you visit your future home can have a dramatic impact on which one makes the final cut. By making a few subtle shifts in how you prepare for your visit (and how you spend your time while you’re in town), you can gain more useful insight into the community.    Tip 1: Stay a week if possible While a long weekend might be your only shot, you can get a much better perspective on a place if you have enough time to unwind. A mix of weekdays and a weekend is a great way to get a view of the rhythm of the town. If you have a long time to plan, visit the place in Summer ver...

First Time Home Buyers? Buying a home is probably the biggest financial investment you'll make in your life. Before you get started, do some homework. This handy Buyer's Guide will show you some things to keep in mind as you're hunting for that home of your dreams.     As your buyer’s agent I’ll not only negotiate on your behalf, I’ll keep your private information confidential. And that is important. When the seller’s agent knows how much money you can spend, why you’re moving, details about your life that would indicate an urgency to buy, or the fact that you’ve fallen head over heels in love with the house, your negotiating position is destroyed.   And in case you’re wondering, there’s no additional cost to having a buyer’s agent on your side. Both the listing agent and the buyer’s ag...

  If you or someone you know has recently moved, they might find this article I wrote on the “move in” garage sale helpful:   It’s common sense to have a garage sale before your big move. There’s no reason to pay movers to load boxes of items you can do without. Plus, who needs the clutter in their new home?   But have you ever considered a garage sale after you’ve moved into your new house?   It’s actually a great idea for a number of reasons:   Why did I save this stuff? When you unpack items in you new home, you’re likely to come across a lot of stuff you find you can live without. What seemed essential in the old place just loses its luster in your new space.   But I thought this love seat would fit in here! Despite our best plans, old furniture can turn out to be a poor fit in new ...

 This spectacular home is in a great neighborhood of West hills and features over 1800 square feet on a very large lot with hillside views from the back yard. Vaulted ceilings give this home a bright and open feel and the central air and heat will keep you cozy year round. Large dining area with adjacent kitchen which is bright and also has views. Award winning schools nearby including Pomelo Elementary, Hale Middle School, and El Camino High School. This house needs some TLC and updating but has great potential.

West Hills Ca-Real Estate-Woodland Hills-Neighborhood ice breakers Our neighborhoods are only as strong as the bonds we have with our neighbors.    If you’ve recently moved into a new home or have noticed someone new move in next door, it’s not as hard as you might think to reach out and make a connection.    While we all want to preserve our privacy, the benefits of being good neighbors far outweigh whatever “exposure” we might fear in the process. Good neighbors make safer neighborhoods. Good neighbors often can share tools and resources to reduce expenses and increase convenience. Finally, good neighbors can become good friends.    Here are a few ways to foster friendly connections:    Compliment and/or ask questions about your neighbor’s home. Is it obvious your neighbor has a great...

West Hills Ca-Woodland Hills Homes-Great little DIY garage project   If you or anyone you know loves to fish, I came across this ingenious little DIY garage storage tip for rods and reels. Keeps them handy, yet out of the way:      The Simple Storage System for Fishing Gear 1. Get your hands on inexpensive wire storage shelves. Buy them in short sections that you can get relatively close together (think: one end for the back of the pole, the other end for about the 3/4 mark). If you’re using deep sea poles, get more wire racks to distribute the weight.   2. Screw the racks to the ceiling of the garage, making sure to find a good stud to anchor each screw. Some racks have clip-on screw mounts. You might want to use some sort of U-bracket depending on how much weight you plan to put on th...
