Looking for LaCresta Property in Murrieta? Look No Further!


If you are looking for property in LaCresta, Ca, I am your local expert and can help you find a great equestrian property.  Most of the properties are 5 acre parcels with lovely homes on them.  There are some lots that are 10 acre plus parcels.  If you are looking for a peaceful place to raise horses, or ride your horses, then this is it.IMG_3618

This is my horse Bella on a walk in LaCresta, California.  It is so peaceful down in LaCresta, but yet so close to so many things.  You feel as though you are in a different world-like out in the country…but you are only 8 miles to the freeway which is the 15 freeway. And, you are close to restaurants and shopping.  You are even close to the Temecula Wineries.  In LaCresta the average temperature is about 10 degrees cooler than down in Murrieta because you are only about 10 miles to the ocean as the crow flies.  We get cool ocean breezes and it is so nice.

This is my daughter in law and grand daughter.  Riding horses in LaCresta, having horses in LaCresta, or just living in LaCresta is awesome.  Give me a call today so I can help you buy or sell in LaCresta.

What To Do When The Ball Is Dropped By The Loan Officer


I am such a hands on realtor that I am double and triple checking things all the time.  Every once in a while I like to share a story with my clients to help educate them when it comes to something in real estate.

Here is the deal today, what to do when a loan officer drops the ball.  What to do what to do???  It is SO frustrating to me when my buyers first of all don’t listen to me when it comes to getting pre-approved for a loan by a company that I highly recommend.  If I get an off the wall lender or someone that i have never heard of before, it can seriously cause major problems if the company is not good or they just don’t perform.  You would think the loan officer would want to do a good job so he could get paid.  After all, he/she does get paid once the loan is completed.  But, you would be surprised as to the lack of urgency on some of these companies.  

As an agent in the Inland Empire, I know I need to remove contingencies after 17 days unless we have specified another time frame in our offer or counter.  So, I know I need to have all my inspections completed and my buyer is completely satisfied with all the findings that we have in anything to do with the home.  Even the termite report if there are too many repairs or the house needs to be tented the buyer may or may not want to go forward.  So, I make sure we have everything completed BEFORE the 17 days are up so that we can move forward.  However, dealing with this bank in California they are ladidaaaaa about this 17 days.  I have called, emailed, texted to tell him we need to know for sure by the underwriter if we have full loan approval so that we can remove the contingencies.  This loan officer does not seem to care and said the loan is a tough one and he just does not know and they need more documentation.  Okay, so why did you wait until day 16 to tell me-probably would have waited until later than that had I not stayed on top of him.  So, my buyer frantically runs out to get what he needs and sends it over.  I happen to see an email from the loan processor so I follow up with her because there is a phone number on her email.  I gave her a call this morning to see what was going on and if they could submit before we need to remove contingencies today…can you please put a SUPER RUSH ON IT???? She said yes which was great!  So, I am praying we will hear something today.  I should not have to call the loan processor-that is the loan officer’s job.  I used to be a loan funder, so I know how things work.  I feel like many times, I wear many hats and do other’s jobs.  However, this is what i do for my clients.  I will not remove their loan contingency unless I know for sure because I don’t want them to lose their deposit.  I work hard for my clients.  If i can help you buy or sell, give me a call today.Inspector_300 image001 image003

Luxury Homes For Sale In Rancho Cucamonga, Alta Loma, CA


 

 

As of today, there are 41 active homes in Rancho Cucamonga over $900,000.00.  The first home that came up in my search today was a home listed at $939,000 that is 3802 square feet, has 4 bedrooms and 4 baths and is on a 38,764 square foot lot. Many of the homes for sale are in Deer Creek or Haven View Estates.  As a certified luxury home marketing specialist, I am always checking out the homes in this price range to see how long they stay on the market and what they have sold for.  There is one home in Rancho Cucamonga at the top of the price point that is listed for $3,850,000 and has 11,192 square feet with a 67,512 square foot lot and has 6 bedrooms, 6 full baths and one half baths.  This home is located in the lovely gated community of Haven View Estates.  Haven View Estates has a gate that is guarded by a live attendant and they check your license even before you come in there.  This is a top notch security system for this lovely area.  Even real estate agents have to show their ID’s and a copy of their license even to show a home in Haven View Estates.  They make sure their community is well protected.

There are 12 homes that are active in Alta Loma right now.  The funny thing is some of these homes should be put into the Rancho Cucamonga Active category but the agents did not put them in correctly into the MLS so hopefully they won’t be over looked when someone is looking to purchase a luxury home in the Inland Empire. The first home over $900,000 is a home that is $949,900 and is 4038 square feet on a 19,500 square foot lot, this home has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and one half bath.  Homes in this upper tier go to $2,480,000.00 which is a 6 bedroom 5 full baths and 2 half baths.  The home is 7175 square feet and is on a lot of 22,306 square feet.

One of the listings in Alta Loma is my listing and is a luxurious home.  The main home is 3568 and the guest home is 864 (the guest home is permitted as a conditioned exercise room) however, this guest home is fully self contained and would be great for renters, a student, grand parents, parents, etc.  This home also has a barn which holds 2 horses.  This home has RV parking, pebble tec pool and spa, covered patio, exercise room, office, formal living and dining rooms, remodeled kitchen with upgraded appliances and cabinets. Priced at only $955,000.00. Give me a call today 951-204-1864. Joan Patterson, BRE 01431647.
