  What is the difference between a foreclosure and a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure?   A lot of people wonder what the difference between a foreclosure and a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure and I understand the confusion.  A foreclosure refers either to a trustee’s sale foreclosure or to a judicial foreclosure,  a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure means that the lender has agreed to accept the title to the property and the borrower transfers title to the lender rather than waiting for the lender to foreclose.  This can only happen if the lender agrees to accept the title back instead of foreclosing.  You cannot simply transfer the title back without having this agreement. Have more questions or want to see if you qualify for a government short sale in Fresno program and receive cash at closing?  Vis...

A former home staging client of mine, a busy working mom with a beautiful home, asked if I'd be interested in decorating her home for Christmas. I hesitated for a nano second and said, "YES!" She needed me to purchase new decorations for her large, tasteful home so I inquired as to the budget. " Oh just use your judgment. I trust you." I thought I was in dreamland. I was! She wanted some good pieces that she could keep and add to over the years. Nothing too over the top. So I made a beeline to Pottery Barn ( my dream store) and Martin's, a custom decorating shop in Fresno, CA. It was fun, fun, fun and I kept it reasonable as far as price. Here are some of the results. Just enough decor to give the rustic mantle a festive look.   Handmade swags adorned dining room sconces.               ...

Are you ready to celebrate Christmas by receiving the Words of God into your spirit and your soul?  I'm sure ready for a positive inspirational message that speaks to my heart.  Today I am making and keeping a "Christmas resolution" to read my Holy Bible EVERY DAY until Christmas, following one of the simple plans from YouVersion (The Bible App).  Below is the email I received from YouVersion. Advent is here!

  Buyers Costs Associated with Escrow Our buyers always ask how much money do I need to buy a home.  In fact I just had a request to go over these costs with a buyer I am meeting today so thought I would publish this list.  This list is based on buying a home in Fresno CA.    1)       Earnest Money Deposit (EMD).  This is the amount of money you will deposit into escrow within 3 days once your offer is accepted.  Usually $1,000 or 1% of sales price.  This will do towards your down payment or if you are financing 100%, will be refunded to you at close of escrow 2)      Professional General Home Inspection:  Optional but recommended.  A home inspection is a visual inspection of the structure and components of a home to find items that are not performing correctly or items that are unsafe....

   Yesterday, while taking a break from home staging, I saw a new piece of Fall decor, new to me anyway, a cloth pumpkin. Upon inspection I found that it was made from cloth, a stick and a roll of toilet paper. So simple and so cute. I have to tinker with mine a little more to make them exactly the way I want them, but decided to post pics and directions so that other home stagers or anyone for that matter, could make them for their own holiday decorating. First: the materials- toilet paper, cloth ( try rusts, creams and browns as well as orange for variety,)    Next: fold the cloth into the center of the roll. Last: Place stick in center. And voila! A pumpkin patch! This is an inexpensive and fun craft project for kids of all ages and can be disassembled, used in other ways and reassem...

Bonadelle River's Edge Homes For Sale Fresno, CA.  93730With interest rates being at or near historic lows and the housing affordability index so high, people are flocking back to new construction.  Certain developments around town have sold out even before ground was broken for any construction.  Take the DeYoung development on Nees just west of Willow for instance.  They were sold out before any framing or digging had taken place.  Location has played into this factor as well being in the highly desirable north end of town.  The Bonadelle River's Edge development on the north west corner of Chestnut and International is no exception when it comes to location.  The MLS shows that there are three homes currently pending in escrow and only one that is listed as active.  It is possible th...

    During the past year many local real estate agents in the Fresno/Clovis area, as part of their marketing programs, have begun providing their clients home staging walk through consultations from Selling By Design-Staging. The home stager and the client walk through the home while the staging professional discusses changes that the client can make which will enhance the home. The client is free to take notes.   In this home we suggested the owner remove heavy drapes, and a large recliner, as well as move the large sofa from the middle of the room to the wall. The changes opened up the room and brought in more light.         Staging consultations have paid off big time for both the agents and sellers in quick, profitable sales. To encourage those agents, and others who would like to a...

Home Sale Trends Woodward Lake Fresno, CA.  93730Picking up a home around one of the few man made lake communities in Fresno may be more possible than ever with the current interest rates and prices.  The Woodward Lake community is one of the most highly desired areas in all of Fresno.  Consumers can buy with confidence in this neighborhood and not need to worry about the quality of the area deteriorating, etc.  This 20+ year old development is situated perfectly in the north side of town where economic obsolescence won't be a factor 30 years from now.  Looking at the sales data on paper can't give a detailed picture of the market trends as the homes on the water will have significantly different price points than any of the homes non on the water.  These stats throw all of the homes to...
