Understand the Realities
Real estate investment, like any form of investment, is risky. Do not use money you cannot afford to lose. Careful study, understanding the market, and practice help alleviate a lot of the risks but things happen in the best of situations so don’t play with what you can't afford to lose.

Taking risks with the money you have set aside for investment is one thing. Taking risks with your family's savings, property, and other assets is another. Consider starting an LLC.

What is home staging and how will it help you sell your home? According to Earl Bonawitz GM for Century 21 Wright Staging Temecula and Murrieta homes for sale is, quite literally, setting the stage for buyers. You want the home to look good, you want it to have the right atmosphere to attract buyers, and you want the first impression to blow them away.
Staging a home can mean sprucing up the paint job, eliminating clutter, moving furniture around – practically anything that makes your home look better to the buyer is staging. Whether you decide to do it yourself or hire a home staging professional, it can, and will, help you sell your home.
Here are a few pointers on how to stage your home and how each suggestion can help sell your home faster or for more money:
How it helps: Furnished homes with just a hint of style help buyers see possibilities they can bring to the home such as a different wall color, new curtains or hardwood floors versus carpeting. The easier you make it for the buyers to see themselves living in the home, the better chance it has of selling.
How it helps: Removing your personal clutter lets potential buyers see it as their home. No matter how much you love the items, leaving personal touches is, invariably, a turnoff to the buyer. It makes it darn near impossible to see the house as anything but yours.
How it helps: Temecula and Murrieta homes for sale should feel, well, homey. Anything they can see, smell, touch or feel should be set up for maximum selling affect. Baking smells are an excellent touch.
We have been expecting the number of bank owned properties to increase in Southwest Riverside County but it has not happened. The Obama administration announced that they will be modifying the incentive program for loan officers, servicing firms, and borrowers. In the past these kinds of announcements halted the number of bank owned properties coming onto the market. This could very well be the case again. Southwest Riverside County has a shortage of available properties for buyers and this situation may continue. We have seen as many as 30 offers on one property and this is not a good sign. If you are a buyer you are probably very frustrated with the process and lack of inventory. We were hopeful that the end of May would see the inventory increase dramatically, but with the latest announcement that may not be the case. We are seeing prices exceed the listing price which is putting upward pressure on prices. The process of decreasing inventory and increasing sales has been ongoing since March of 2008. Considering the historically low interest rates and low values it would appear to be an excellent time to by in Southwest Riverside County. We are hopeful the listing inventory will increase as demand remains strong but we have been waiting since December of 08 when the moratorium was first announced.
