 A Tour of Construction Zones Near Edison Avenue by Ontario        Today I took a tour of the construction zones in the Ontario area by Edison Avenue and observed that much progress is being made on several fronts. Everything from the infrastructure for the Park Place homes to the widening of Archibald Ave was observed.         Edison Avenue was scheduled to be closed from August 18th through the summer of 2015. Today however, I drove down Edison avenue to observe the construction that is going on in the area and some of the signs were on the ground and the road had not yet been closed as seen at the beginning of the video above... I took a right from Edison Ave onto Archibald. For a complete schedule of road closures in this area, go to the News Model Colony East (NMC) Builders web sit...

Ontario CA Short Sale Ontario, California real estate has seen some drastic swings in prices, conditions and inventory. First, when the Ontario housing crashed in 2007, no one could sell a house. Anyone trying to only chased Ontario home buyers with dropping prices. Then came all the Ontario CA foreclosures. This attracted many cash buyers and investors. As banks realized that flooding the Ontario real estate market with foreclosures drove prices down even further, they began holding on to their Ontario foreclosed homes. This brought a new wave to the Ontario real estate market: Ontario CA Short Sales! The Ontario CA Short Sale Yes, Ontario California has seen the rise and fall of the short sale, and this type of transaction helped many distressed Ontario homeowners reset their financia...

Ontario CA REALTORS know that the Ontario CA real estate market has stabilized and Ontario CA home values are on the rise. This is great news for Ontario home owners looking to increase their equity and sell their homes for a profit. In the recent two years we have seen Ontario home values stabilize from the market crash that began in 2007 and 2008. Now, with real estate inventory so low in the Ontario area, buyers are fighting over and over-bidding on reasonably priced homes on the market. In a "normal" real estate market, there is typically about six months of inventory on the market at any given time, but in today's Ontario real estate market we are seeing only one to two months of inventory at any given time. In fact, homes are actually selling, or going into contract, within hours ...

The short answer: The best time to sell is when you are ready, or when you have to make a move. That is, when you have outgrown the space in your current house, or you are now an “empty-nester” and prefer to find a smaller home. Perhaps your marital status has changed, which necessitates a move, or your job has relocated you.   Market conditions also play a role, as do seasonal conditions. For example, your chances of getting top dollar for your home are more likely in a seller's market, when demand outweighs supply, than in a buyer's market. Local and national economic factors also may dictate when to sell. If a major employer in your area is laying off workers, it may not be a good time to put your home up for sale. People will be cautious about buying when the future seems so unpred...

As part of your offer, you may require a termite and pest inspection. This company not only inspects for termite damage and pest infestations, but also inspects for dry rot and water damage, among other things. The company that performs the inspection is important to you as a buyer, because you want to be sure they do a good job. It is important to the seller because it is customary that they pay for the inspection and some types of repairs that may be required. You should determine which company you want to perform this inspection and make it a part of your offer. Otherwise the seller will choose. If you do not know which company to hire, your agent will make a recommendation. If you considering selling your Southern California home this Spring, you can obtain a free market update repo...

Title insurance is important because, by providing you with an Owners Policy, they insure that you have clear title to the property. If there are any problems later, you can always go back to the title insurance company and have them clear it up. Since it is customary for the seller to pay for the owner’s policy, they have an interest in which company is used.   However, you are going to pay a fee to the title insurance company, too. This is for the Lender’s Policy. The lender’s policy insures your mortgage lender that there are no liens or judgments against the property and that the mortgage will be in first position. In other words, should you sell the property or refinance it, their mortgage gets paid first, before any other claims against the property. The lender’s policy is less ex...

Is Your Ontario Home Underwater? Short Sale that Ontario House!Ontario Short Sales are nothing new. In fact, most of the Ontario housing market consists of short sales these days.If you’re struggling to make your mortgage payments on a property that is worth half the value of what you purchased it for? This is NOT the American dream. No one wants to lose their home to foreclosure. And no one wants to sell them home if they don’t want to move. But doing nothing and letting the bank foreclose, or staying with a home that is financially crushing is not the way to support your family.A Ontario short sale may be the best option for you. But how can you know without talking to a Ontario Short Sale Expert (That’s us!)? Have you considered a loan modification instead of a short sale? That may b...

California’s median home price marked a full year of annual price gains, propelled by strong sales of higher-priced homes in February, while a lack of inventory constrained total home sales for the month, the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.) reported this week. Sales in February were down 0.9 percent from a revised 420,270 in January and down 5.9 percent from a revised 442,660 in February 2012.  The statewide sales figure represents what would be the total number of homes sold during 2013 if sales maintained the February pace throughout the year.  It is adjusted to account for seasonal factors that typically influence home sales. The statewide median price of an existing, single-family detached home slipped 1 percent from January’s revised median price of $337,360 to $333,88...

A short sale is a sales transaction for which a seller’s mortgage lender voluntarily agrees to accept a loan payoff of less money than what is owed on the mortgage loan. In a short sale, the property may or may not be in foreclosure. However, homeowners may consider short sales as a viable option for avoiding foreclosure. 1. Hire a REALTOR®! Not all real estate agents are REALTORS®. REALTORS® are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® and voluntarily pledge to abide by the strict code of professional ethics. 2.Take a Proactive Approach The short sale process can take a lot of time and effort on your part, so taking a proactive approach to your short sale may help you complete the transaction as quickly and painlessly as you can. 3.

  Ontario Int. Airport Cares About Their Passengers and Provides Entertainment     Recently I was at the Ontario International Airport picking up a passenger and while waiting for the luggage, we were entertained by a talented group of kids. After doing further research, I found they were the Claremont High School Symphonic Band. It made the time go by faster waiting. I read on Facebook that there is a group of volunteers who meet monthly to plan nice events like this for passengers and their rides.   Ontario International Airport 2500 E Airport Drive Ontario, CA 909-937-2700 Facebook                                    Kristin Hamilton  DRE #014092138 Keller Williams Realty -I sell real estate in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties commonly called the Inland Empire.
