My buyers are renting a home that is in a short sale with a Trustee Sale posted: Here's my discussion with them......... I have a really nice couple with 2 kids.  They live in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles.  The husband's mother is going to be purchasing a home for them, with a conventional loan. We already have a pre-approval with direct underwriting and are ready to go. Here's the dilemma: The home they are renting is in a short sale, with a trustee sale scheduled for mid-February The landlord initially told them in December to forget about the rent, and they agreed to use the security deposit on hand as applied rent. The landlord afterwards, in January, gave them a 30 day notice to vacate (they have been living in the house for 2 years) The landlord, as of 2 days ago, h...

Pay It Forward - $10 to a single mom living out of a hotel room Earlier this week, I was driving home from my weekly meeting with my networking group, and was at a stop at a major intersection right before I got onto the freeway. There was a woman there who looked to be maybe in her late 20's on the corner with a cardboard sign that read: "Single Mom living out of a hotel.  Need help" God forgive me, but I am sometimes skeptical of the reasons why some people do these types of solicitations on the street corner. Yet at the same time, I know very well that many people are truly down on their luck, so my sense of wanting to "save the world" prevails and I try to do what I can. (which sometimes gets me into trouble as you can tell from some of my blog posts and comments) But the reason why...

Putting Zillow to The Test: My $948.60+ Adventure - Day 30 - Update Alright, peeps. So I'm 1/3 of the way through my 90-day benchmark with Zillow. Here is my activity listed on Zillow: If you look at my stats, although it shows I've had 9 contacts, I've actually had eleven contacts (not sure why?). One of those was before I became a premiere agent (Contact #3), and it was an inquiry for one of my listings (not in the zip code I have paid for). Here are my contacts thus far: Contact #1 - Another who wanted me to come to his open house Contact #2 - Same realtor wanting me to come to his open house Contact #3 - A prospect who wanted a showing on my Goodbee St. listing - non-responsive / dead end. Contact #4 - A prospect who wanted a showing on an REO property in my Zillow paid zip code (Ye...

The San Fernando Valley is famous for many reasons. Some know it as the "valley of the stars" others recognize it as the' other movie industry's center', that is the Porn Capital of the World. Different cities are vying for the title. Some of people consider it the Sherman Oaks hills. I was going on a listing appointment and the owner of the house was telling me, that two streets from her house, she knows someone who was a "neighbor" to a "studio". She assured me, that the neighbors got together and shut the operation down. I find this an interesting dilemma. When you are a potential buyer, how do you feel about this? As a Realtor in Southern California, I am compelled to disclose what I just learned. There could be extra traffic in this upscale residential neighborhood. It could bring ...
