The stock answer given to this question is, if you rent and have cash for a down payment you can purchase a home. But what if you don't rent? Then here's the simplified version of what a mortgage broker would do with you.Step One:  Annual Salary  What is your gross monthly income from all sources? If your annual salary is $75,000, divide this by 12 and you'll see that your monthly income is $6,250.Step Two: Monthly salary x percent you want to spend. Broker and financial planners ill recommend that you spend anywhere between 25% and 6% of your monthly income on household expenses. We're going to use 36%.  $6,260 x 36= $2,250.Step Three: Calculate your debt. Add up your current monthly debt. This Includes things like a car, loan, insurance, school loans, credit cards, and any other perso...

                                         Today, the population of the world is about 7.3 billion. By 2050, the UN predicts it will be 9 billion. What does that mean for the future of housing?One thing is for certain: New homes will not be built at nearly the same rate as our population growth. That means we will have to make smarter use of what we have, and rethink the space and resources we need.For instance, consider household size in the early 1900's, five-person households were normal. Today, one person households are common. By 2050 there may be a shift to more shared housing, including granny flats and conversions of family homes to duplexes.Homes in 2050 will probably no look much differeent on the outside than homes today, because the vast majority of houses that will exist in 2...

    ‪#‎GranadaHillsSoldWATCH‬: This week, I decided to try something new... a SOLDWATCH, to let you know what's selling in your area... and I've just picked a few photos of features that caught my eye. So in Granada Hills in the past week,5 homes sold, from $417,000 - $594,900; age of homes from 1954-1959; size 1346sf -1918sf; and days on the market: 29-101. The one that had been on for 101 sold below listing price, as will happen the longer homes stay on the market. - PS Alfonso Ribeiro's home in Stallion Meadows isn't featured here, but you can check TMZ, it's a nice one! Welcome to the neighborhood, Carlton!  If you'd like more details about the next step in selling your Granada Hills home, come on over to www.SearchGranadaHillsHomes.com

Granada Hills MarketWATCH1 October 2015So here's what I know.  Blood moon came & went, and we're all still standing. YAY! It was an exciting time. Now, we're heading straight into October... how is that possible? We're a month away from Halloween, 6 weeks from Thanksgiving, and 84 days from Christmas! If you need to countdown... here's a clock What this means for you as a homebuyer is... 1) it's time to check out the neighborhoods. Are you a decorator? Do you enjoy all the trappings of each holiday, and sharing that with your neighbors?  If this is the case, you'll need to keep an eye on the different HOA stipulations. 2) You can see what the "competition" for decor is looking like and 3) you have just under 90 days to wrap up a house in a bow for your holiday gift.This year has been in...

More Things To Do With Onions 1. Remove rust and tarnish from utensils. Either shove the utensil (as in a knife) through the onion, rub the juice on with a cloth, or boil an onion in water for a couple of hours, then use the liquid to dip and polish metal.2. Eliminate odors. It may seem counter-intuitive to use an onion to eliminate odors, but onions absorb odors fairly quickly, including paint, fish, and burnt food. Cut an onion in half and leave it in the middle of the room.3. Stop pets from "going" in the same spot. By placing an onion slice in the location where your pet has had an accident, you prevent it from repeating the mistake.4. Soothe a bee sting. Cut an onion and rub it directly onto the bee sting. Let it remain for a few minutes and the sting will diminish.5. Eat them for ...
