Boy, these fires that flare up quickly on these Santa Ana wind days are scary! It is terrible to lose your home and all your possessions in a blink of an eye with hardly any warning and it usually happens in areas where there are a large undeveloped hillsides with vegetation that carries the flames and embers quickly to another home development. I recently read on the internet a solution for home owners who are lucky enough to have their own private pool and of course a community pool, where all you have to do is add this particular valve setup and the fire department would be able to use that idle 50,000 gallons of water to Save your home. I will attach links that will allow me to share with you this interesting product. Maybe it could be of help to you and give you some peace of mind...

Just a few days ago I was asked by someone about current values and my opinions about Crystal Cove real estate. Aside from the anomaly of one recently sold property, selling prices have held slightly above $1,000 per square foot for Crystal Cove homes. In a nutshell, I think between now and the first of the New Year is an excellent time to buy. The new Obama administration has stated the economy is the top priority. What is the foundation of the economy?  The housing market. They will be doing their best to shore up the sagging housing market. As this happens, people will begin to feel more confident about purchasing a home. I think if these things happen, the window of opportunity will begin to close for our local market. By window of opportunity, I mean what Buyers are looking for now...

There are many opportunities for Deals or Bargains in the Newport Coast Gated Communities The asking price of some  homes  are not what they will settle for. Bank owned and Short Sales have no emotions involved, It is strictly a numbers game. Bank owned properties can even though Priced at $535 per sq foot can be gotten at $478 per sq ft the only things is you must try by putting in an offer Short Sales are also available...the Real Estate Agents have no idea what the lenders will accept until an offer is put in and the bank responses with a  yes or no.  They may take 45-60 days or longer just for them to give you a decision, so you can put in low offers and be the last one waiting when they come back and possibly get the home of your dreams, ocean close, for less. SO Make offers and se...

I have had a listing in Newport Coast for the past 3 months. This home is in Move In condition, light and bright, corner lot,fantastic location, close to shopping center, schools, and the beach. The reason it has not sold is because it's a short sale. Short sales usually take 2-3 months to get the bank to respond, therefore many agents do not like to show them to their prospective buyers and buyers don't want to wait. But you can sometimes get a great deal and my listing is one of them. The bank has finally responded and with any offer I should get a response in 48 hours. This home is 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths. Asking price $1,199,000. These homes were selling 3 years ago for $1,400,000 +. Please contact me for a private showing. I promise you wont be disappointed. For more information visi...
