Is Disneyland Over For the SoCal Real Estate Market For Awhile? We're starting to see lenders, buyers and investors doing a lot of crazy things that slightly resemble the crash of '08. I'm not suggesting there will be another crash like that. But I think it might be time to start paying attention to some of the experts.What we are starting to see over and over again are folks borrowing against their equity, some several times over, and investing in the F&F market. Interestingly, lenders are funding them.

In the meantime their equity is not only tapped out on their o...

  Difference Between A "HUD MANUFACTURED HOME"& "MODULAR HOME"  NOTE: All the information in this post is relative to California and the HUD Manufactured Home mandate. They do vary from State to State so please feel free to share your knowledge on this platform as it will help many of us better understand the many nuances that vary from State to State, County to County and City to City.  This is a "HUD MANUFACTURED HOME"       This is a "MODULAR HOME"   No, your eyes are not deceiving you. What you see in these two photos is exactly what you could see on a private lot or parcel in Anywhere, USA. Contrary to popular belief both a HUD Manufactured and Modular Home could very well go down the same assembly line in any factory and often times do.  Both are available in one and two story flo...
