What not to do when buying real estate

Real estate investing can be an effective way for an individual to improve their financial stability. However, there are many mistakes that prospective investors will want to avoid when purchasing properties in California or anywhere else. It is important to have a plan of action before deciding to buy a property. Ideally, an investor will do research into the property itself to learn everything that there is to know about owning it.

Home buying myths to stop believing in

There are many myths that home buyers in California and elsewhere may believe to be true. For example, many believe that they need a 20% down payment to buy a home. However, it is possible to get a loan without making a down payment at all depending on what type of mortgage a person uses. Some also believe that they have to buy a home for the maximum amount that a lender allow them to borrow.

The basics of commercial property valuation

Commercial property can be appealing to anyone in California looking to either find the perfect spot for a business or make a profit renting out a desirable space. One of the most important pieces of information that perspective buyers want to know before investing in a commercial property is how much it's worth. There are several ways to accomplish this goal.

What to know about housing market conditions

Buying a home in California can always be quite a challenge. However, it's especially difficult for those who are looking for their first home. It is not uncommon for buyers to discover that homes in their price range are fixer-uppers that may need a lot of work.

Increased expectations for websites to be ADA compliant

As a small business owner, you understand the importance of making sure your building and facilities are compliant with the standards set forth by the Americans with Disabilities Act. If you do not make this a priority, you could face legal action and other negative consequences. Some business owners are learning that more and more people expect websites to be ADA compliant as well. 

Boomerang buyers look to return to homeownership

For people in California and across the country, the last financial crisis was often particularly devastating to their involvement in the real estate market. The financial crisis began with serious problems in the home mortgage market, and many people lost their homes to short sales or foreclosures during that period. However, a growing number of individuals who lost their homes due to the financial crisis are beginning to move again on the path to homeownership.
