One of City of Burbank's jewels is the DeBell Golf Course. This venue offers a regulation eighteen hole course and a par 3 course. The layout of the Regulation Course is very tight and hilly, but enjoyable for beginners. Its ideal for the family to play. The women often play from two sets of tees on this course, while the men play from the same tees. The 18-hole course at the DeBell Golf Club facility in Burbank, California features 5,633 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 71 . The course rating is 68.8 and it has a slope rating of 114 on Kikuyu grass. The course was opened in 1959 and designed by William F. Bell, Richard Bigler and William H. Johnson.  William F. Bell was a prolific designer and is best known for the design of Torrey Pines(with William P. Bell), Bermuda D...

Bob Hope Airport, to me, represents one of the cool things about living in Burbank.  There is a nostalgic feel to the airport, not just in some of the historical and architectural elements but the fact that it's one of the few airports where you board the plane from the tarmac.  Maybe it's the kid in me, but I love that! The airport was opened on Memorial Day weekend in 1930, so I thought it would be appropriate to write a bit about it's history.   Built by United Airports Company of California (hence it's original name of United Airport), it became the primary airport for the Los Angeles region.  The airport was frequented by famous aviators such as Amelia Earhart, Charles Lindbergha and early aviation heroes connected to Lockheed Aviation.In 1940 Lockheed purchased the airport, expand...

So, before I attempt to answer that question,  what is shadow inventory? Shadow inventory refers to the housing supply that the banks have foreclosed on ( banked owned properties-REO’s) and are getting ready to foreclose on. According to First American Core Logic, as of September 2009 there was a 1.7 million supply of these homes nationally, as compared to 1.1 million a year earlier. The important thing to note about this statistic is that it includes properties that are at least 90 days delinquent and have not been foreclosed on, so technically we do not know exactly when the bank will foreclose and where these properties are. This pending supply has been much talked about for the last couple of  year as many have been expecting a flood of homes to hit the market. While it is true that...

Did you know, that City of Burbank has a composting program? The program started back in 1989 and through this program Burbank has been able to keep 50% of it's waste from making it to the landfills! Composting is the process where living organisms turn organic waste and yard waste into a rich amendment that you can use in your yard to naturally fertilize your soil. What's great is that residents are eligible to receive free composting instruction through workshops and a free composter! The workshops cover topics ranging from how and what to compost to Xeriscape(minimal water usuage) landscaping!  Trust me I did not know what the meaning of Xeriscape was either! I attended a free class that lasted about an hour and then received a free compost bin.  I started the process in February and...

The Falcon Theater in Burbank was founded by Garry Marshall, who's resume includes the creation of Happy Days, he also directed Pretty Woman, The Princess Diaries etc.  It's truly a jewel in the Burbank community as it provides a fantastic venue for the performing arts. The theater is a composed of a 130 seat performing arts stage and a smaller venue for children's shows.  There is not a bad seat in the house as it's small size allows for a wonderfully intimate experience.  Past shows have included talent such as Sally Struthers,  Stephanie Zimbalist, Hector Elizondo, Jack Klugman and most notably, Crimes of the Heart with Morgan Fairchild!

One can easily miss the tiny signs that mark entry into Magnolia Park, but the area is recognizable by its bastion of independent businesses: the landmark Handy Market grocery, funky antiques shops, vintage clothing boutiques and Eisenhower-era storef...

If you are investing in real estate as a profession or if you realize that the primary residence you purchase is an investment, you should consider Burbank. This city has everything to offer to everyone, but the potential for growth is the most appealing to someone in the market for investing in residential real estate.   Burbank has a very strong and growing economy and population is steadily increasing with that demand. With the entertainment industry jobs being created and the need for writers and animators this will be one of the most solid moving property markets in Los Angeles county.   Single family residents in the 3 and 4 bedroom range are already starting to show solid increases in sales volume and the reason is because of the general sentiment that the economy is turning arou...
