It’s time to get READY for wildfire!

There are things you can do right now to prepare your house to prevent fire.

We have experienced four years of drought conditions along with significant moisture this past winter leading to excessive grass growth which we anticipate will lead to an above average fire season.  Wildfires spread from the wildland to homes every year in California but there are things you can do now to help prevent it from destroying your home.

What does defensible space mean?

1. Lean, Clean and Green Zone.  A defensible space of 100 feet around your home is required by law.  Clearing an area 30 feet immediately surrounding your home is critical.  Remove flammable vegetation.

2.  Reduced Fuel Zone in the remaining 70 feetSpacing between plants improves the chance of stopping a wildfire before it destroys your home.

3.  Remove plants beneath trees.  These plants act like a ladder to the fire into the trees.

4.  Remove tree branches at least 6 feet off the ground.  This will prevent small ground fires from jumping into the trees.

5.  Move wood piles at least 30 feet from all structures.  Fires that get into these piles are difficult or impossible to stop the spread of fire to the home.

Other Tips:

A home checklist is available at Readyforwildfire.org under the defensible space tab, along with other valuable information.

Burning:  Currently there is a burn ban in effect.  Residential debris burning will not be allowed until we receive significant rainfall or snow later in the year.

Utilize the Green Bag program to remove debris from your yard or the landfill supplies a debris dumpster at a reduced cost, along with free trips to the landfill with yard waste, 6yd maximum

Hire a Defensible Space Contractor.  They are pros at quickly getting your yard READY and removing debris.

If you have any questions call Paul Spencer, Prevention Officer Truckee FIre Protection District 530-582-7850.

More Home Buyers Have Renovation in Mind

Daily Real Estate News | Wednesday, June 22, 2016

As buyers face more hurdles finding their dream home because of limited inventories, some are settling for a property they can eventually mold into what they want. Over a quarter of renovation projects are being driven by recent home purchases, according to the 5th annual Houzz & Home survey of more than 120,000 respondents. Home owners say they are opting to renovate instead of buying a “perfect” home largely because they think remodeling is a more affordable option or could provide a better return on investment, the survey found.

Eye for Remodeling

New Roof Is Greatest Remodeling Value

Stay Put and Remodel — or Move?

How to Hire a Remodeling Contractor

Recent home buyers invest more in renovation than other home owners — $66,600 versus $59,800. They also tend to take on larger projects and are nearly three times as likely to renovate all of their interior spaces than other home owners, according to the survey.

Kitchen remodels are the most popular renovation projects, followed by master and non-master bathrooms. Other top priorities include the addition of home automation and curb-appeal projects, such as upgrading exterior paint, roofing, exterior doors, and decks.

“2015 was another strong year for the home-renovation market, with home owners continuing to increase investment in their homes,” says Nino Sitchinava, principal economist at Houzz. “While the majority of renovations are spurred by home owners’ desire to upgrade a home they have lived in for some time, recent home purchases are also an important driver of home-renovation activity. Recent home buyers tend to do more, spend more, and are more likely to hire professionals to help with their renovation projects than other home owners. As the churn in the housing market picks up in the near future, the home-renovation market should see meaningful growth.”

Home owners who are preparing to sell reported spending slightly over half the amount that recent home buyers do on renovations ($36,300 versus $66,600), which shows they are “prioritizing immediate return on investment and rapid sale,” the Houzz survey notes.

Existing-Home Sales at Highest Pace in 9 Years

Daily Real Estate News | Wednesday, June 22, 2016

All major U.S. regions except the Midwest saw an uptick in existing-home sales last month, the National Association of REALTORS® reported Wednesday. As tight inventories continue to plague many markets, the median sales price for all housing types climbed to an all-time high of $239,700 in May — up 4.7 percent from a year earlier — as buyer demand outweighs housing supply.

Total existing-home sales, which are completed transactions for single-family homes, townhomes, condos, and co-ops, increased 1.8 percent month-over-month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.53 million in May. Sales are now up 4.5 percent from a year ago and are at the highest annual pace since February 2007. This is the third consecutive month for gains in existing-home sales.

“This spring’s sustained period of ultra-low mortgage rates has certainly been a worthy incentive to buy a home, but the primary driver in the increase in sales is more home owners realizing the equity they’ve accumulated in recent years and finally deciding to trade up or downsize,” says Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist. “With first-time buyers still struggling to enter the market, repeat buyers using the proceeds from the sale of their previous home as their down payment are making up the bulk of home purchases right now.”

Yun says sales likely will maintain their current pace throughout the summer, assuming there are no further decreases in job growth that could prompt a pause among repeat buyers.

Here’s a closer look at how existing-home sales performed in May, according to NAR’s latest housing report:

  • Home prices: The median existing-home price for all housing types was $239,700 in May, up 4.7 percent from a year ago. That also surpasses the previous peak in median sales prices of $236,300, set last June.
  • Days on the market: Properties spent less time on the market in May, selling, on average, after 32 days. That’s below the average time on market a year ago (40 days) and the shortest time since NAR began tracking such data in May 2011. Forty-nine percent of homes sold in May were on the market for less than a month, also the highest percentage since May 2011. Short sales were on the market the longest, at a median of 103 days in May, while foreclosures sold in 51 days. Non-distressed homes took 30 days.
  • Housing inventories: Total housing inventory at the end of May increased 1.4 percent month-over-month to 2.15 million existing homes for sale. That is 5.7 percent lower than a year ago. At the current sales pace, unsold inventory represents a 4.7-month supply.

“Existing inventory remains subdued throughout much of the country and continues to lag even last year’s deficient amount,” says Yun. “While new-home construction has thankfully crept higher so far this year, there’s still a glaring need for even more, to help alleviate the supply pressures that are severely limiting choices and pushing prices out of reach for plenty of prospective first-time buyers.”

  • All-cash sales: Buyers paying in cash accounted for 22 percent of all transactions in May, down from 24 percent a year ago. Individual investors account for the biggest bulk of all-cash sales. Investors purchased 13 percent of homes in May, down from 14 percent a year ago.
  • Distressed sales: Foreclosures and short sales dropped to 6 percent of all sales last month, down from 10 percent a year ago. Foreclosures comprised 5 percent of sales in May while short sales represented 1 percent of sales. On average, foreclosures sold for a discount of 12 percent below market value while short sales were discounted 11 percent.

Regional Snapshot

Here’s how existing-home sales fared across the country in May:

  • Northeast: existing-home sales rose 4.1 percent to an annual rate of 770,000, and are now 11.6 percent above a year ago. Median price: $268,600, which is 0.1 percent below May 2015.
  • Midwest: existing-home sales fell 6.5 percent to an annual rate of 1.3 million in May but are still 3.2 percent higher than a year ago. Median price: $190,000, up 4.8 percent from a year ago.
  • South: existing-home sales rose 4.6 percent to an annual rate of 2.28 million in May and are now 6.5 percent above a year ago. Median price: $211,500, up 5.9 percent from a year ago.
  • West: existing-home sales climbed 5.4 percent to an annual rate of 1.18 million in May but are still 1.7 percent lower than a year ago. Median price: $346,900, which is 7.7 percent above a year ago.

Mortgage Rates Plunge to 3-Year Lows

For the second consecutive week mortgage rates moved lower, and are currently the lowest since May 2013.

“The 10-year Treasury yield continued its free fall this week as global risks and expectations for the Fed’s June meeting drove investors to the safety of government bonds,” says Sean Becketti, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “The 30-year mortgage rate responded by falling 6 basis points for the second straight week to 3.54 percent — yet another low for 2016. Wednesday’s Fed decision to once again stand pat on rates, as well as growing anticipation of the U.K.’s upcoming European Union referendum will make it difficult for Treasury yields and — more importantly — mortgage rates to substantially rise in the upcoming weeks.”

Freddie Mac reports the following national averages with mortgage rates for the week ending June 16:
