I  just completed her training as a Certified Pre-Foreclosure and Short Sale Specialist. I am one of only 150 such Certified Specialists in the State of California.  There are several alternatives to foreclosure, such as a payment modification plan, a repayment plan on late amounts, or a short sale, which causes less damage to a homeowner's credit scores. I am trained to work with lenders' loss mitigation departments, and complete the specialized paper work needed for a successful short sale. Please give me a call if you have any questions (661) 618-9444 or e-mail me @ DonnasDreamHomes@earthlink.net

Lately I have had several phone calls from distresses homeowners saying they listen to Suze Orman and she suggested that they "Short Sale" their property if they are in trouble.Well - this is a good suggestion IF you have a true hardship. A short sale is not a way to get out of your loan just because your home has dropped in value and you do not want to wait out the market. If you have cash in the bank your short sale will most likely not be accepted.The most common reasons that qualifying hardships for a short sales are:Loss of Job, bills, divorce, bankruptcy, involuntary job relocation, death of an immediate family member, business failure, military services, resetting loanSo Suze thanks for letting people know about short sales because they are great if you qualify, but please let pe...

Today was a nice day - I only worked until 2:00 pm so I could go with my daughter and her class to the Stu Miller Pumpkin Patch in Lancaster.  It was a lot of fun.  The kids had story time, they were able to play with the animals in the petting zoo, ride rides, go down a HUGE slide and jump in the bounce house.  We stayed for over 2 1/2 hours and the kids had a blast!After the pumpkin patch we went to Mulligans Family Fun Center (www.mulliganfun.com) in Palmdale.  They had a GREAT special - for $14.99 you had unlimited use of the bumper boats, race cars, mini golf and the arcade games that did not give out tickets and Laser Tag.I had never been to Mulligans (and to be honest never had any desire to go) but my family had a great time and I would recommend it for a nice family night out. ...

A friend of mine sent me an e-mail today with a few examples of recently passed legislation from other states that has been passed. I thought that California was one of the toughest states for investors - but here are a few examples of anti investor legislation which has recently been passed.These are just a few example as to why it is important that you need an experienced agent if you are doing real estate investing. You must be careful and know the laws in your state or you could unknowingly break laws and get in hot water! MARYLAND Pre-Foreclosures * Restricts fees and services investors can offer homeowners.* Seller gets 10-day right to cancel contract.*** Investor must reimburse 82% of proceeds to seller if reselling the home for profit. Landlording * All rental property must be i...

The 2008 Rose Parade Float in Palmdale needs your help.  This month the city of Palmdale is celebrating their 30 year anniversary as a city.The city informed us that they need over 500 volunteers in December to decorate their float for the 2008 Rose Parade.  The theme for the float is "Celebrate the world through reading"  The thought behind this theme is the more self confident you are as a reader the more likely you will become more productive to society.  This is Palmdale's third year in the Rose Parade.When a float is 20 feet tall how do you get it to Pasadena?  The last person I know locally was a Saugus Man who was a pulling a house along the freeway decided to take a different route and smashed the roof off the house at the first bridge overpass in Universal City!.  So how do you...

I have a real estate investor who is short on cash and is looking for another investor to help him finish his deal.  This would be a very short term loan (less then two weeks).  If you are interested or know anyone who is interested please contact me and I will forward your information on to him.
