GETTING A HIGHER PRICE BY SELLING IN DECEMBER People typically believe that selling their home in the last couple months of the year is a big "no no". Our brokerage team believes and have seen the results in the past that are the complete opposite.  And we have been able to achieve quicker sales, more satisfied buyers and sellers, and higher prices for deals listed during the months of November and December. Here are some reasons why we have found this to be true. 1.  Alot of people that are relocating to an area due to employement will typically begin their new workplace at the beginning of the year.  They will need to lock up their new home before that time and the holiday season typically gives them some time off in order to do so. 2.  There are fewer homes on the market during Novem...

California Foreclosures Get Cancelled - A New Era? As some of you may know, California passed the Homeowner Bill of Rights legislation which, amongst other things, restricts California's lender's dual tracking of foreclosures.  Dual Tracking is a process in which a lender may be considering and negotiating a short sale or loan modification with a borrower and at the same time proceeding along with the normal foreclosure process.  While some have mixed feeling about the process, it all comes to an end on January 1, 2013 and lenders will have to choose one or the other. Due to this new law, cancellations of foreclosures in California by lenders rose 62.1% in October 2012 compared to September 2012. This is the highest spike in foreclosure cancellations since the company ForeclosureRadar h...

Agoura Hills CA Holiday Season Already? I had an odd moment today driving home through my Morrison Ranch neighborhood in Agoura Hills CA.  I wind through the streets as usual. It's dark out now, and it's only 5:30 pm. Winter time I know by the clock change a few weeks ago. I make my normal left, then right and right again. I did a double take at one of the gorgeous homes I pass every day. I actually stopped the car in the middle of the street and looked into my rear view mirror at what I just witnessed.  My eyes were squinting in the dim night, further darkened by the tinting in my car mirrors.  I had a strange epiphany. With work, clients, homes bought and sold, the kids with school, homework and sporting events I completely lost track of time What I saw that brought me to this mental ...

The Beauty of a Regular Day in Agoura Hills   While I was taking some time to get some exercise with my regular hike through the numerous trails around Agoura Hills, I stand in awe, like I do many times, at the beauty of this place, so close to the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles.   Here are just a couple pictures of what I stumbled across.  Just steps from my home. I hope you feel the same way about this gorgous landscape, especially with the leaves changing this time of year. I promise you this is not a postcard but is really what you get out here!!     The Beauty of a Regular Day in Agoura Hills

Resolve to Face the Facts! Since 2007, 8.9 million homes have been lost to foreclosure and millions more are headed in that direction. As a real estate professional who has earned the Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designation, my mission is to ensure that you or anyone you care about does not add to that statistic. The unfortunate fact is that so many homeowners who have played by the rules and never imagined that they could be facing foreclosure are now in a very tough situation. More than one in four homeowners owes more on their mortgage than their home is worth. On top of that staggering statistic is the fact that millions of homeowners are unemployed, or underemployed and falling further behind every month. Sound familiar? Rest assured you are not alone.  If you feel ...

   Enjoy the day at this enchanting place known as the Peter Strauss Ranch in Agoura Hills, California! This amazing and enchanting vision of a place was originally inhabited by the Chumash people. Then at the turn of the century, Henry Miller purchased the land as a retreat from his busy life at the automobile factory in Los Angeles.  Unfortunately, during the Depression Henry Miller attempted to develop the aircraft-engine that resulted in his financial demise. Mr. Miller lost the ranch as well as his dreams. There were other owners of the ranch as well as other visions for this amazing place! Unfortunately, unforeseen circumstances took place, until actor Peter Strauss came into the picture. Peter Strauss fell in love with the ranch while filming a movie there and purchased the ranc...

  This was taken from a friend's deck in Agoura Hills, which is about 45 minutes from LA, just outside of Malibu.  As you might imagine, you can't see a lot of stars within most urban areas.  I like being able to take a reasonably short drive and see stars (literal stars, not movie "stars").   This wasn't even that great a night for stargazing.  During the summer months you can see the dust of the Milky Way, a pretty spectacular sight.
