Ask the person inquiring about where they got their information. Try googling your address and see if it shows a recent listing. Contact a local Realtor and have them check for you.

There is no rent control in Arcadia so there is no legal protection here.

Take a look at other rentals in the area and if you think the increase will bring the rent to above-market value you can always negotiate the increase down; losing a tenant is costly to a landlord so you may have some success. ... more

Your house is at great school district. Great location pushes up the price of listing. Give it a try! You'll find it's not difficult to sell your house at your price. By the way, if you or your spouse are age 55 or older, you may buy a new and downsized house with lesser price than your existing primary residence and transfer the trended base to your new home; meanwhile, cash out your fund for retirement arrangement. If you need a precise consulting service please feel free to contact me. ... more

If the property goes into foreclosure, there probably will not be any equity left over. If there is equity I don't know why anyone would do a foreclosure. If you do a short sale, there again there is probably no equity and as of 2014 there will be tax consequences. If you do a loan modification, you will have to qualify for the new payment agreement. You should contact a Realtor who can work the numbers to see if there is any equity so you don't have to do any of the above. Call me i you have any questions.
Hope this information helps.

Hi Steve,

Welcome to California :)

What cities / areas are you looking to specialize in? Each area has its distinct and separate flavor. The school district alone could raise the value of a house by $150,000, even if it's in the SAME CITY since some cities have multiple school district boundaries.

We have a very strong team in the San Gabriel Valley and are looking for smart and hard working people to join us. We provide mentorship, training, and give real world solutions. But, we might not be in the area you want to work in... hahaha. We only consider candidates who have the ability to problem solve and who are willing to put in the work to take themselves to the next level.

Where do you see yourself in a year, in five years?

Good luck!

I don't see myself as experienced because I was licensed before but in another State and there is soooooo much to remember, and soooooo much that can happen that it can be overwhelming.

Other than any fees to join a broker which most do not charge you have a lot of extra expenses.
E&O insurance
NAR dues and joining fee
State Board dues and joining fee
Local Board dues and joining fee
Mls dues and monthly fee
Electronic LockBox registration and monthly fee
There are a lot of extra costs involved in start up like signs, cards, advertising,
Most new agents feel lucky if they make 5-6K the first year after startup costs.
