New California Law To Require Carbon Monoxide Detectors On May 7, 2010, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed into law Senate Bill 183 (Lowenthal), a bill that will require the placement of carbon monoxide detectors in all California dwelling units. The bill also requires that the presence or absence of these devices must be disclosed when residential real estate is transfered. What does this mean for you? You will be required to have installed  "carbon monoxide devices" that are designed to detect carbon monoxide and produce a "distinct, audible alarm" when wanting to sell any dwelling unit made for humans (their words). The device may be battery-powered, a plug in, or hard-wired with a battery backup. It may be combined with a smoke dectector, but, if it is, it must emit "a...

Like I have all the answers.  If I don't know then I will find out who does and get that to you ASAP. Closing costs are a necessary part of every real estate transaction - but what are they and who pays for what?  I have put together a Title Sheet that will show you who pay's what "typically".  Real Estate transactions are all different and a lot of this is up to your agent's skillful negotiation. Here is where I linked the Actual Sheet I am referencing.

Happy 4TH of July 2010 The 4th of July is our National holiday of independence from Great Britain, as you know. The lyrics to America the Beautiful were written by Katharine Lee Bates, as a poem called "Pikes Peak," in 1895, is something you may not know.  Prior to that, in 1882, Samuel Ward composed music for a church hymn. Wards music and Bates poem were combined and published for the first time in 1910 and titled "America the Beautiful". It has become America's most beloved and popular patriotic song.   Lets also not forget those in the armed forces, past and present, who have helped us remain free.Have a wonderful day with your friends and family and be safe!

Home Buyer Tax Credit Has NOT been extended. 6/18/2010 Despite what you're hearing, the federal home buyer tax credit has not been extended beyond its June 30, 2010 deadline to September 2010. Congress is trying BUT it hasn't happended yet. When the tax credit was last modified in November 2009, Congress modified its language to read that, in order to be eligible, a homeowner must be under mutual contract for a home on or before April 30, 2010, and must be closed on said home on or before June 30, 2010. A surge in April purchase activity created back-office back logs at the nation's biggest banks and an estimated 180,000 home buyers are finding out the hard way that lenders don't always clear conditions as quickly as you'd like. 60 days between contract and close, industry lobbyists re...
