Dear Clients & Friends,There couldn't have been better news for the struggling middle class than we heard on Friday.  The Fed has decided to hold interest rates and will not raise them for now.  This is incredible news for those with adjustable interest rates, home owners thinking of selling and of course those sitting on the fence that need an added incentive to get off the fence and purchase a home.Are you thinking of buying a home?  Let us know the following and we'll send you new listings daily: Price Range Locations Number of Bedrooms Single Family Home or Town Home Age of home if it matters Direction the home faces, if it matters Special Features such as Schools, Pool, View Are you thinking of selling your home?  Let us know the following and we'll share the market value and our m...

Dear /Clients & FriendsIt is the end of a wonderful Summer and School has already begun.  Six Flags Magic Mountain & Hurricane Harbor are ending their seasons and footballs are already in the air.  Dani & I have updated the Labor Day Weekend events page, we sure hope you enjoy our efforts.The local real estate market has benefited from a steady recovery.  This is a market in which prices have stabilized and multiple offers have happened much less than they had in recent years.  Homes sales are up about 20% over 2014 and prices have risen about 10% in the past year.  Many young and potential first time buyers remain on the sidelines but are trickling into the market.  This group of buyers control the pace of sales and rise of prices.  Once the young, highly educated first time buyers dec...

Dear Clients & Friends,Home ownership is back on the top of the list for most Americans when they speak of the American Dream.  This is a positive change considering how taboo it had become just a few years ago.  Home prices in most areas are at or near the value seen in 2008 when the bottom fell out of the the real estate market.  Home prices continued rising for the next two years but sales numbers fell off the table.Homes are once again selling at pre-recession numbers as consumer confidence has returned and interest rates remain well below normal.  Many fear that another bubble has been created but if history repeats, home prices should continue to rise for another seven or so years.  The last time the real estate market crashed it dropped about 33%.  During that recovery home price...

I was just thinking, what would God want to see in a Realtor before allowing them to pass through the Pearly Gates?  I guess some of the most important criteria would be: Did you put others best interest ahead of your own? Did you show homes based solely upon the clients criteria no matter what the commission was? Did you show homes that were listed by other Realtors no matter which company or your personal feelings toward that listing Realtor? Did you work with all people that asked for your help regardless of their age, sex, nationality, religion or sexual persuasion. Did you provide service providers based solely upon their merit and the benefits they bring to your client? Did you give answers to questions and concerns that were truthful and let your client know if you did not know t...

Dear Clients, Friends & Fellow Americans, Independence Day is on the 4th of July.  Tony Lewis is an honorably discharged DAV Vietnam era Veteran.  Service to our nation was required when I was drafted in 1968.  Today the draft and lottery system are long gone.  Our your children, both women and men, need to volunteer in order to defend our nation.  We thank them each individually and collectively.  It is unfortunate that too many of our Soldiers may not be from the most affluent of circumstances and this option is much more inviting than it would be should they have other options.  This 4th of July Holiday would be a great time to truly think of their sacrifice and also to give more thought before committing our youngest members of society in harms way.  We Salute our Soldiers everyday ...

Dear Clients, Friends & Fellow Real Estate Professionals,What are the neighbors thinking? Have you noticed that new neighborhoods stay in tact until one of the original owners decide to move and then one after another the entire neighborhood begins to change ownership? Dani & I were original owners in the Saugus community near Saugus High School called Brock/Citation in 1980. This phenomenon happened in 1989. We then became owners of a new home in the Valencia Summit on Chiffchaff Ct. in 1989. Our community stayed in tact for several years but around 2004 one of the neighbors moved. We were the last to move in 2005 and bought a newer home here in Valencia Westridge. Thought this would be an interesting story. Are you thinking of Selling your home at this time? School is out and buyers t...

The Roller Coaster, Feast or Famine, Real Estate Market is now wackier that the new Twisted Colossus ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain.  These latest sales numbers indicate just how hot the current market really is.  There have been 122 Homes sold in the past 30 days in the Santa Clarita Valley, currently there are 581 active listings.  The number of homes currently in escrow is 654.  It is unexplainable how interest rates remain at such low rates.  The one tool that the government has to slow down an overheated market is to raise interest rates.  It would be wise to lock in a loan as soon as possible.  Call Us if you haven't refinanced yet.  Your loan may be one that will allow you to refinance without showing income.Let's discuss the current market value of your home.  Prices have rise...

I have access to the MLS and know the community that my new home will be located better than most people.  I've negotiated everything in my life and I'm really good at it.  Why do I need a Realtor? A Doctor has many years of training doesn't operate on themselves. An Attorney has been in court defending other his entire career yet hires an Attorney. A Teacher has taught for years yet attends classes and learn from other teachers. You don't know what you don't know.  First off, not all homes are entered for the public to see in the MLS.  Also, buying a home is not just finding a home and location, it is also knowing the home's history, the schools, the neighborhood concerns, the future value of your investment.  There are Title issues that may be hidden or a Mello Roos Bond that you are ...

Stability has returned to the real estate market as homes continue to be listed and sold in a timely manner.  Interest Rates remain extremely low and FHA loans have lowered their PMI.  Stated Income Loans are also back.  There are many home owners that have avoided going into foreclosure as home values are now rising to levels unseen since the collapse in October of 2008.Keep in mind that approximately 10% of homes will be listed for sale during a hot real estate market and the 7 years in which the market was stagnant and you'll get a good idea of what will happen once we are truly back to a traditional real estate market.  There are many younger adults waiting for their opportunity to purchase a home and also many empty nesters that will decide to downsize.  There's also an incredible ...

Dear Clients & Friends,   Daylight Savings time has begun and Spring is less than two weeks away. The rather mild Winter has started the home buying and selling season earlier than usual. Homes are selling at a brisk pace, home prices are once again on the rise even as interest rates have continued to fall.   This weeks jobs report was stronger than expected, the unemployment rate fell to 5.5%. You would think this would be great news for the Stock Market. Unfortunately stocks dropped as the strong jobs market may signal the end to the historic low interest rates. I strongly suggest, whether selling or buying a home, getting started right away. Higher interest rates hurt both sellers and buyers equally.  Home Buyers are hampered as the higher rates lower the amount of home that is affor...
