  Maybe it was love at first sight. Possibly it was a feeling that hit you the next day. Perhaps it was the kind of love that took time to grow. However your feelings developed, a home is just like any other relationship: emotions dull over time and it takes work to add new spark. Image courtesy of digitalart at FreeDigitalPhotos.net Here are five things you can do to breathe new life into your relationship with home and feel good about it again. 1.)  De-clutter: Some of the main reasons that people get sick of their homes is that their tastes have changed and they feel that they have just run out of space. Fortunately, these are two things that can often be accomplished by de-cluttering. One of the best ways to mentally approach a de-cluttering project is to imagine that you are trying...

Escondido Falls in Malibu, CA Trailhead: 27807 Pacific Coast Hwy Malibu, CA 90265        Anyone that follows my blog knows that I love the outdoors, hiking, climbing, and sunsets - in looking for a short hike this past weekend a few friends and I stumbled upon Escondido Falls in Malibu, CA.  While it was a short hike, it was one of my more challenging (for reasons I'll explain later) but offered diverse terrain, the opportunity for climbing, and a perfect sunset on the way back.        The trailhead to Escondido Falls begins along a highway and the first stretch is on a paved road surrounded by houses - visions of suburbia may dance in your head, but at least the homes are some of Malibu's finest, so the scenery is pretty great if you have any interest in architecture.  Once you get to ...

  If you’re a homebuyer searching for a home in a hot location, such as Los Angeles, (which was recently listed in an article on FoxBusiness.com as one of the top 10 luxury markets for flipping), inventory has dropped drastically over the last year, according to the National Association of Realtors.

  The National Association of Realtors recently released data showing U.S. home sales at their highest since February 2007. In the US, the supply remains low and the demand remains high.

And we’re still seeing many multiple offer situations because of the low housing supply, so that in turn can make the prices to increase to unrealistic levels.

  At our recent Thursday 4 Malibu Real Estate Partners’networking mixer, we had three great sponsors, not to mention a great time. Nikita, Malibu’s latest and greatest Mediterranean-Italian restaurant, owned by Larry Ellison, provided superb appetizers, which were devoured minutes after hitting the tables.  A special thank you to Ashlee, Erin and Tracy who coordinated all the goods and spread from Nikita.        Our in-house preffered lender Max Byfuglin/Citibank provided lots of free swag as well as Kari Trostler with Portfolio Escrow. Kari also provided us with her homemade desserts, which were just as big of a hit as the Nikita appetizers!     Our 4 Malibu Private Events Lounge was full of great people who contribute great things to the Malibu community.

  Make repairs and get organized before marketing your home in any fashion.  This particular rule should apply whether you have already moved and your house is vacant or if you are still occupying the space.
