LAKE ARROWHEAD ANTIQUE & CLASSIC WOODEN BOAT SHOW

boatshowThe 2014 Annual Antique & Classic Wooden Boat Show will take place Saturday, June 7th & Sunday, June 8th at the Lake Arrowhead Village

Antique boats will vie for trophies and can be viewed up close at the Lake Arrowhead Village docks.

On display throughout the village will be vintage woodie cars, hot rods, antique wooden boat models and early outboard motors. Antique boats will also be for sale throughout the village.

The feature boat of this year’s show will be Empress, a 1938 Gar Wood 22-foot model 915 Streamliner. Only 9 of these rare beauties were ever built. The Streamliner was intended to revolutionize the runabout market with the practicality of three cockpits forward, with seating for eleven persons in a 22-foot boat. The rear engine and V-drive configuration was very unusual in the 1930s.

The show is produced by the Rim of the World Historical Society with the assistance of the Antique & Classic Boat Society, the Arrowhead Lake Association, the Lake Arrowhead Village, the Up The Hill Woodie Club, Street Rods Forever and the Trompers.

Foreclosure market dying down for some

“10 States Hit Hard By Foreclosures
By Chris Persaud of Bankrate.com
Live in one of the 10 states featured in this slide show? RealtyTrac, a California-based firm that tracks foreclosures, compiled a list of states with the highest rates of foreclosure in November. Nationally, one in every 1,155 housing units received a foreclosure filing in November — down from a rate of one in 978 in October. Click through to see if your state made the list.”

ForeclosureI was reading an article on MSN’s internet news page this morning regarding foreclosures. The 10 hardest-hit states for foreclosure was an interesting read. Some not so surprising, like Florida, they have really suffered economical set backs for quite some time. Others were more surprising to me, like Utah. I have a Realtor friend in Utah and got her take on the matter. Here is a quote from Realtor Kaye Cundick with Chapman Richards Real Estate, “We have had many short sales over the last few years but it’s starting to slow down in that area and the market has gotten better. Last year was a great year and we plan on it being even better this year. – Kaye”

California is not on the list of the 10 worst states currently. I’d say I agree with that, there has been a definite shift. I was more than surprised to discover mountain-wide there are only seven foreclosures active in our MLS right now. This is great news for buyers and sellers. The market is a lot more stable when you take foreclosures out of the equation.

2014 seems to be a year of continued improvement in our market. If you’d like to come up to take a look at properties in our beautiful community, I’d love to meet with you. 909.838.8715 or jhgalligan@msn.com

When your property tax bill is a surprise

In April I sold a home to a lovely client and friend. She immediately got to work in remodeling her new vacation property. This house sits on an odd corner where it kind of touches 4 different streets. Three of those streets are in our countys Special Services District for road maintenance and plowing; etc. It’s close to the lake, surrounded by trees, a very nice spot. This month my friend received her semi-annual property tax bill. The bill had an assessment of $1,900, the first half of a $3,800 road assessment to repave on Special district streets. This was the first she had heard of this large sum and was shocked to say the least.

I called the selling agent, who called the sellers. Neither party claims to have had any knowledge of this assessment. I called the neighborhood organizer of this project. He gave me the phone number for the person at SB County handling it as well as the project name. He says he sent many emails to my friend letting her know how excited he was about the paving project. She says, yes, within 4 days of her closing escrow he came over and asked for her email. She shared his excitement about the maintenance and beautification of the roads. He never mentioned the cost. She never got anything from the county. He did say one interesting thing to me, however. He mentioned he was surprised this home was not exempt because of the placement, he wasn’t sure she would benefit from the project.

The county was able to disclose the mailing info (survey, ballot, results, notices) all went to the sellers mailing address. Seller says they didn’t see anything. I asked the county if this property could be exempt. Initially I was told, “no.” My friend took over with the county and worked with them. The county revisited the property and changed their minds about the exemption. So in the end my friend will be exempt from the $3,800.

My question is, should the seller have been responsible for the non-disclosure if, in fact, someone did have to pay? Are people responsible for reading their mail? The survey went out during the escrow period, the results were sent after we had closed. So, technically it was not a done deal. I think if one  has knowledge of a possible fee coming down the pike it should be mentioned. I think my client would have purchased the home anyway. Tax bills should not be a shock. Property taxes are something we check into during our discovery period based on public record. Since this was not yet enforced, there was no way of knowing for the buyer.

In the future, when I sell houses on these small roads, known to be in the Special Services District, I think I’ll give them a call and ask if there are any proposed fees. Just like I have to call the Weed Abatement department to ask if there are any outstanding notices or liens on a property. I learned a new lesson here.

Coincidentally, my partner in the office also sold a vacant lot during the same period on the same street. In her case it is not exempt and was also not disclosed. I have yet to see what will come of that scenario.
