Relief appears imminent for thousands of San Fernando Valley homeowners hit with state tax bills for mortgage debts forgiven in 2009.State lawmakers said Monday they plan to cancel the state tax obligations with a vote Thursday. Shannon Murphy, spokeswoman for Assembly Speaker John Pérez, D-Los Angeles, said legislation will go before the Assembly Revenue and Tax Committee today and the Appropriations Committee on Wednesday, and will receive a full vote Thursday.A similar Senate floor vote planned Thursday would send the bill immediately to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has repeatedly stated his support.  The new bill is similar to one he vetoed March 25.  But this time it omits a part he opposed – financial penalties for businesses that routinely seek state tax refunds.  Democrats re...

If you want to be successful at managing your money, you'll need to understand the importance of developing spending plans, spending money wisely, and saving. Needs Versus Wants! You can begin by thinking about your personal needs and wants.  "Needs' are items that you must have for a basic survival, such as food, clothing, and shelter. "Wants" are things you desire but can live without, such as fashion, items, restaurant meals, or entertainment. Make a list of each and estimate the costs; then compare. Are you spending as much for your wants as for your needs?  Are you currently making payments on items that you bought to satisfy your wants? Remember, wants are neither good or bad. However, you'll want to personally balalance your needs and wants so that yu can sucessfully establish a ...

New homes sales increased in June 11% with 384,000 units sold,  the gain over the previous month was great, the number of homes sold in May was 352,000.  Sales are still 21% below 2008 level,  when 488,000 were sold according to hud. Builders are optimistic, in June they started building homes at a rate of 470,000 an increase of 14.4% over May. One of the reasons for this increase is the $8000 tax credit first time home buyers will receive next year, another reason particularly in Los Angeles County is the low inventory of existing homes, every new listing that hits the market gets multiple offers, from 8 to 50 depending on the home condition. The demand is huge and the supply is very low, I see home buyers coming with big down payment, and some are cash purchasers up to $ 600,000. New ...

This Home Owner contacted Platinum Home Staging, Inc. to give her home that "wow" factor. She was not selling her home, but was hosting her Church's Mother's Day Fund Raiser at ther home ~ in 10 days! Talk about a tight time-line, and a tight budget. She had only $2,000 to spend, and there were a few things that HAD "to go", she told us so. But WE DID IT with 2 days to spare, ALL for UNDER $2,000. INCLUDING: new sofa and love seat set, new tables, new draperies and hardware, new area rugs and a few new accessories. Everything else came from her own things. The transformation brought tears to her eyes ~ her home now had that WOW factor for when her guests arrive for her fund raiser. We hope you enjoy the transformation to! *****************************************************************...
