Although your home falling into foreclosure will leave a negative mark on your credit report there are steps that you can take to get your credit back on track: 1. Rebuild Good Credit- Six months after the foreclosure appears on your credit report, begin rebuilding your credit by opening new lines of credit such as major credit card and a charge ctard. Remember to pay the bills on time. 2. Take Your Time- Do not apply for a new mortgage for two years so that you will have significant time for your rebuilt credit history to show. 3. Comparison Shop for A Mortgage These are just a few ways to pick up the pieces and rebuild your credit after foreclosure.

A resounding YES is the answer to this question. I am astounded by how many times I hear clients say that they received their credit report but did not thoroughly read it. We can point to this behavior as one of the reasons we (the United States) are the richest country with the most debt. As a nation, we could really stand to do a lot better. Your credit report is your financial report card. When was the last time you let your child bring in their report card and then decided that you really didn'y need to read it? Try never! We need to apply the same zeal to our credit reports. AnnualCreditReport.com is a federally-approved website you should visit if you want a truly free credit report.  If there are errors follow the instructions to correct them. Also visit MyFico.com to learn how t...

Scent, aroma, quaff, fragrant, stench, odor--We're talking about the integral part that scents play in our feelings and sensations.

Residents are excited about the first Walgreens Drug Store slated for Chino Hills? Why all the fervor? Clearing has begun on the site where Walgreens is slated at the northeast corner of Chino Hills Parkway and Peyton Drive.  Immediately adjacent to this site is Aegis Senior Living. These residents eagerly await this project because with seniors being challenged by health issues and transportation issues, Walgreens immediately next door resolves both those issues.

Starting a new life together can put anyone in ‘whirlwind mode.' From the moment you are engaged, incessant planning ensues. With every detailed covered, the big day comes and then goes. Now what? It's normal to feel like there is somewhat a void in your life. Afterall, the last year, maybe even two years has been spent planning every single nuance of that day. But there is still more to be done. There are thank you notes to send out, name changes to be done and planning for the future. Planning the future entails making wise economic decisions. Real Estate is one of those decisions. This is not just because everyone needs a place to live, but also because sound real estate investments early on can provide for wealth in the latter years of marriage. Leveraging oneself with both short te...

Thanks to Congressman Gary Miller, $9 million for wastewater and water infrastructure was secured for Chino Hills and Chino, in addition to $200,000 for a state of the art children's area in our new library and another $250,000 to build Fairfield Ranch Road from its current end to Pine. Just when you questioned what your Representatives are really doing for you.

Good News on the crime watch front...this year's City of Chino Hills budget increased the Police contract with the county to $8.8 million. As a result, the city will add three new deputies, a sheriff specialist, two marked police cars and one unmarked car. There is a five year plan to insure that the city police keeps up with the City of Chino Hills' needs and population. Kudos to the county and the city!

The Good-Many homeowners in San Bernardino County, including 555 in Chino Hills and 118 in Chino can expect immediate property-tax reductions due to the recent drop in housing prices. The tax cuts are because the assessor's office has reduced the house's assesses value. Residents whose property values have been reduced will receive cards in the mail.The Bad-Property values have dropped.The Tax Breaks- Proposition 8, which was passed by California voters in 1978, specifies that when a house's market value falls below the value recorded the previous January 1, county assessors may reduce the recorded value to save the the owner property-tax money.  Homeowners with questions or those who wish to appeal their valuations, may call the county assessor's office at (909) 458-1300.
