Get Your Home Covered!!@#$%^&*!!!!!

Hellllloooo My Beautiful Wonderful Bay Area…  With all the terrible devastations left by fires, hurricanes, heavy rains, earthquakes… etc… it brings to the forefront what we really need to do and the importance of carrying insurance!!

Here’s a quick checklist of what YOU SHOULD KNOW is in your policy…

KNOW how much fire, theft, wind and explosion coverage you have… most standard policies DONT include earthquake, flood or landslide… DO MAKE A DECISION whether you should carry some or not…

BE SURE TO GET… Replacement Coverage to rebuild your home at Today’s Cost/s… DO GET FULL Replacement Value at Today’s Cost.

MAKE THE TIME TO INVENTORY Everything in your home… either with a camera or video… go room by room open your closet doors, open your drawers, open your cupboards… take shots of everything… DO NOT KEEP AT YOUR HOME… Store this away from your home somewhere…

OR… check out “knowyourstuff.org” …

Be Pro-Active… take care of your home and belongings… I really really would hate for you to lose your stuff and not have any help.

Thanks for checking in…

More Help for First Time Homebuyers!

Good Morning My Wonderful Beautiful Bay Area!!….  There’s just something to be said about working with clients who pay attention to their purchase and any legislation that might affect their transaction…

First thing this morning received a call from a client in escrow… he just heard on the news that there may be another $10,000 tax credit for 1st x homebuyers specific to the State of California… was this true and could we get included??…

Personally I hadn’t heard so after checking with my local board, CAR, other sources including CAR Legal… IN CASE YOU HAVENT HEARD  … there is indeed an extension that will go into effect sometime in May of this year which will give first time homebuyers an additional $10,000 tax credit from our great state of California! In addition to the $8,000 tax credit from the federal government…  if your buyers are in contract by April 30… This piece of legislation is very very good news !!… we’re advised to wait a few days for the details to come out…

Keep checking in… Will post updates as more details roll out…

 Hope this news comes in handy for you… It’s a bright sunny day… Cheers Everyone!!

 Your comments are always welcome!!…
