Pet-Friendly Remodeling Ideas for Homeowners in Woodland Hills, CA

November 27, 2010

Majority of Woodland Hills, CA homeowners own a pet and in these household pets are family members too.  For these Woodland Hills households, a remodeling home project must factor in the needs of their furry family members.  Below is a list of pet friendly designs:

1. Avoid wall-to-wall carpet to prevent odors, trapped hair, stains;
2. Chose ceramic tile, polished stone or other surfaces that are easier to clean;
3. Install a feeding drawer in your kitchen cabinets that pulls out during meal time and closes when guests visit;
4. Keep litter box in separate storage area or inside a cabinet with access for your pet to keep smell and mess in confined area;
5. Choose stain resistance and washable fabrics to match your pet’s fur color for sofas and beds.

Happy Thanksgiving!

November 24, 2010

How do we give thanks in a year of recovery?

We re-create ourselves for the future that we desire and must attain. We are thankful that the grindstone of life polishes us up to live both the length and width of it.  We are thankful that when we go out on a limb, and having it cut off, we still are able to discover we have wings!  We are thankful for the choice to direct our every thought and action towards creating true miracles by use of courage and intelligence.  We remember, on this Thanksgiving Day, that it is not because things are difficult that we should not dare; it is because we do not dare that things are difficult!  We show our thanks by remembering that becoming what we are capable of is the only goal worth living. 

Now, go ahead, reach for the stars, and celebrate all your possibilities on this Thanksgiving Day!

Alternative Paths to Homeownership – Seller Financed, Owner-Will-Carry, Lease-Option Homes are Available Now!

November 18, 2010

Many Americans in these challenging times are now seeking viable alternative paths to homeownership.  “Seller financed homes”. “owner-will-carry” and “lease-options” certainly offer alternative paths for homeownership during these difficult times.

With the high rate of foreclosures and even higher short sales, a lot of prior homeowners who may have missed some payments may doubt their ability to acquire a new home using conventional financing.  Additionally, with the high rate of job losses, reduced work hours, furloughs, and other reduction in household income, many doubt their ability to obtain a home through traditional forms of financing.   

Despite these challenges, the desire to own a home versus renting a home is still a very strong desire amongst would-be home buyers.  These economic challenges and severely restrictive financing have caused many home-sellers to become flexible and creative in order to get their homes sold.  Some sellers will offer to finance the buyer’s purchase of their home at prevailing interest rates and as long as the buyer can come up with a decent down-payment.  These transactions are usually referred to as “Seller financed homes” or “owner-will-carry homes.”   If a buyer needs some time to save up a down-payment and maybe improve their credit scores, some sellers will offer a “lease-option” in which the buyers begins by leasing the home and eventually purchases the home. 

These alternatives can prove to be a win-win solution for both buyers and sellers in these challenging times.  If you would like a FREE list of “Seller financed homes”, “owner-will-carry homes” or “lease-option homes”, please click on the link immediately below or call Bandele Oguntomilade at 818-825-6996.

One More Hour . . “What to do?”

November 6, 2010

Daylight Savings Time ends tomorrow  and we must turn our clocks back one hour on November 7th

The big question is ”what to do” with this precious extra one-hour, 60 minutes, 3,600 seconds

Do we enjoy much needed shut-eye of recuperative sleep with this extra hour?

Do we desire a mid-course correction so we spend the extra hour strategizing for a “do-over” in a challenging economic climate?

Do we need the slate wiped clean thus spend the hour looking for the proverbial “reset button”?

Do we suddenly realize that we have ample new opportunities all around us to realize some of our fondest dreams?

What can we really achieve in 1 hour or 60 minutes or 3600 seconds?  Consider the following one-hour historic feats!

  1. Walking on the moon
  2. Winning or losing most wars
  3. Electing a new American president
  4. 9/11
  5. Seizing or freeing hostages (Iran hostage crisis)
  6. Kosovo, Waco, Katrina
  7. Birthing a child
  8. Conceiving a world-changing idea (earth flat v. round, antibiotics, the light bulb, the internet!)
  9. Winning million dollars in the Lotto
  10. 10.  Changing a paradigm
  11. 11.  Birthing a dream (Microsoft, Facebook)
  12. 12.  Changing a life (freeing Chilean miners)
  13. 13.  Changing a destiny!

 

So, as Day-Light Savings ends on this November 7, go ahead, spend your extra hour initiating your life- changing, value-adding activity or event :

  1.  Get as much sleep as you desire to recharge and recuperate from many months of hard work;
  2. “Course correct” if you need a “do-over” from overly burdensome mortgages by seeking modifications or refinances;
  3. Hit that proverbial “Reset Button” if your home has become unaffordable, under-water in debt; by embracing a graceful and dignified exit with government sponsored short sales;
  4. Get that home of your dreams by discovering that homes can now be acquired at very low prices and for very low interest rates.
