Bogun Realty and Luxury Homes - Open House Extraordinaire! At Bogun Realty and Luxury Homes, we plan, implement, and enjoy the most extraordinary and successful open house events.  We simply relish the opportunity to list a home, entice the largest crowd of potential buyers that community has ever seen, and proudly present and flaunt the home in all of its delicious glory. Why do we get so excited about open houses when many in our industry simply do not host open house events and some even perceive them as time wasting drudgery?  We embark on open houses like the announcement and presentation of a precious new-born child ala “Lion King” style or the announcement and victory walk of “Ms. America” at the end of the pageant.  In either case, our open house events are highly anticipated by...

Interest Rates Are Rising - Now Is The Time To Buy Your California Home. Interest rates have recently been rising at an escalated rate.  The longer you wait to purchase your new California home, the higher the risk of you not being able to afford your intended home due to the rising interest rates.  This is based on the assumption that rates continue to hold or increase compared to the lows we had just weeks ago.  Below comparison of May 2013 interest rates to June 2013 interest rates clearly demonstrate the resulting shrinking purchase power due to rising interest rates.

  "Greatest Failure" vs “Respect for Homeowner's Privacy” -  You Decide! For its June 2013 Challenge, ActiveRain asks us (its members) to write about our “Greatest Failure” in exchange for 500 reward points.  At first blush, it seemed no amount of points would ever tempt me to publish an article titled “My Greatest Failure”.  Upon further reflection, I felt comfortable (even inspired) to write about why I had not embraced nor fully implemented one of real estate industry’s most popular marketing strategies “door-Knocking”. “Door-Knocking” is a real estate industry practice where real estate agents and brokers carve out a specific “farm” of properties (about 200 to 500 homes) and on a periodic basis (usually, once per month) show up (un-invited) at each property, knock on the door and pr...

Top Ten Real Estate Secrets That Will Save You Most Money Score You Biggest Gains Secret #12: When Buying, Always Get a Home Warranty Policy     Obtaining a “Home Warranty” policy is an important cost savings step to take when buying a home. A home warranty policy will typically cover repairs for most things that break down in the house that you are purchasing such as plumbing, electrical, dishwasher, air-conditioning, heating, roof, pool equipment, etc. Once you have a home warranty policy in place, you simply call the home warranty company when a covered item breaks down; you pay a deductible (usually around $60 per incidence) and the home warranty company sends the appropriate professional to fix the item. The annual premium for a home warranty policy could vary from $250 to $400 dep...

  Top 12 Real Estate Secrets That Will Save You Most Money Score You Biggest Gains Secret #11: When Buying, Always Get a Home Inspection:       A home inspection is the most important cost savings move to make when buying a home.  It identifies potential costly defects and gives you an opportunity to negotiate with the seller for “Repair Credits”.  Always get a general inspection, termite inspection and sewer inspection. You should get additional inspections (such as mold inspection, etc. ) if issues are identified in the general inspection that raise cause for concern.    If you are interested in selling your home, contact Bandele Oguntomilade at 818-825-6996.   Bandele Oguntomilade is a Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource Specialist, a Certified Residential Specialist and the Broker a...

Even if you have to buy a slightly smaller home or a cosmetic “fixer-upper” in a more desirable neighborhood, you are better off.  A more desirable neighborhood increases the chance of your home holding its value when the economy becomes challenging.  It also increases your chances of accruing more equity in a booming economy.

Top 12 Real Estate Secrets That Will Save You Most Money Score You Biggest Gains   Secret #9: When Buying, Amass Your Largest Down-Payment:         Having 20% down-payment will eliminate mortgage insurance.  Thus, it is prudent to amass the largest down-payment you can put together before buying a home to minimize your monthly housing payment.   If you do not have  20% down-payment, there are many lenders who will provide financing without mortgage insurance as long as you have 10% or even 5% down-payment such as Fannie Mae HomePath Program.   Finally, if you can come up with as little as 3.5% down-payment, you can still purchase a home with an FHA loan or even VA loan with no down-payment.   If you are interested in selling your home, contact Bandele Oguntomilade at 818-825-6996.   Ban...

  For California home-owners who owe more on their home than the home is currently worth, a short sale is an effective procedure to sell your home and have the deficiency (the remaining debt) wiped-out.  In the past few years, many Californians have short sold their under-water homes, off loaded their mortgage debt, and have even gone on to buy better homes at today’s affordable prices. However, in recent months, many real estate professionals have observed a decline in the number of short sales compared to the volume of short sales closed in the last 3 years.  This shift can be attributed to (i) successful modification of many mortgages, (ii) a new trend of increasing property values, and (iii) the large volume of short sales that have already been completed by distressed home-owners. ...

This is the most important election in our history.   Just two more days! We must vote if we want that our voice be heard, if we want to recover the American dream  we should never put our freedom at risk   Stay informed seek and speak the truth and get the vote out.   2012 is the year of the change. Many predictions about the end of the world I personally don’t believe that this is the year that we will witness the end of the world. It’s better to say that we will be witness to the beginning of a new era.   The year that will change the life of generations to come.   Now, I don’t want to mention any particular Party. I know the party and people I am voting for.   What I am asking you is to get out the vote and exercise your right. You probably have your own party preference and the sit...
