Ricardo the Realtor – 5 Star Review – Long Beach Homes For Sale


Long Beach REal Estate AGent

Long Beach Homes For Sale Real Estate Agent Ricardo the Realtor

“Ricardo The Realtor (aka RTR) has a ton of experience and knowledge of the Long Beach area and helped us purchase our first home as husband and wife. We had to close the deal asap over the holidays and he handled it like a pro. He was able to line up all the necessary appointments in one day (home inspector, termite inspector, appraiser, etc) and helped us guide us through the process even after we left town for the holidays. After escrow, Ricardo went the extra mile by meeting the utility company at our new home to make sure everything was set up for our move in.
Ricardo’s biggest strength is the fact that he really cares about his clients. You can trust that he’ll protect your interests during the entire negotiating process. When all was said and done, we were able to get a great price for our dream home. We can’t recommend Ricardo enough.”

Buy a home today – Long Beach Homes For Sale


We cannot tell you how many people that have been renting ask us if the time is right to buy a home. The real question they should be asking is – When is a good time to rent?

Answer: Today is definitely NOT a good time to be renting. Take a look at the Median Asking Rent Chart that the Census Bureau recently released for the first quarter of 2017.
Do you really think that you will receive a call from your landlord letting you know that they are going to lower your monthly rent? Do you think that rents are going to go down?

Look how the median rents have steadily increased over the last 30 years. It does not look to be slowing down anytime soon.


We know a way that you can lock in your payment and protect yourself from rising rents!!! Buy your own home with a 30 year fixed rate loan.
You may be surprised at your ability to buy a home this year and start builiding YOUR equity and not your landlord. Before you renew your lease or make another rent payment give us a call.
We can help you set a plan to become homeowners… reap the rewards of homeownership. We help so many first time homebuyers & we can help you as well.
Give us a call today, let us set an appointment to meet up over a cup of coffee/tea and see what we can do for you. No pressure & best thing is that it does not cost you thing other than 15 minutes.

Rents are going up Up UP!

Per City News Service / :

Apartment-dwellers in Los Angeles and Orange County can look forward to triple-digit increases in their rent over the next two years, thanks to growing demand and low vacancy rates, according to a USC report released today.

According to the study prepared by Beacon Economics for the USC Lusk Center for Real Estate, average rents are expected to jump over 2015 levels by $109 in Los Angeles County and $149 in Orange County by 2018. In the Inland Empire, average rents are expected to jump by just $84, but in San Diego County, renters can expect a $155 hike.

The rent hikes and continued high demand are in spite of more than 38,000 new apartments being planned across the four areas, according to the 2016 USC Casden Multifamily Forecast.

How much longer can you afford to pay RENT?

Here are 5 SOLID Reasons to  STOP Renting and BUY your own house.

Consider the amount of equity that you could have already built. How much equity can you build in the next 2, 5 or 10 years? Equity builds as you pay down your mortgage and your property appreciates.

The money you have been paying each month as rent is building your landlords equity. When you move, you do not see a dime of this money. Rather than pay your landlord’s mortgage each month, put the cash to work for you in your own home.

Landlords determine how much you pay each month, and they can increase the rent at their leisure. But if you get a fixed mortgage loan, your home loan payments remain the same for as long as you own that home. You no longer have to worry about rent increases, or move because you cannot afford a higher rent payment.

Super low mortgage rates will not last forever. If you have ever considered buying your own home, purchasing now can result in a cheaper loan rate and lower monthly payment. As a result you will get more house for your money.

If you have a high credit score, sufficient income & you meet a lenders other requirements, there is no reason to throw away money each month. Buying your home is not a complicated process when you are walked through the process by our team.

We can get you on the road to home ownership. We have plenty of clients that have realized their first home purchase. They would be more than happy to speak to you about their experience and let you know how happy they are that they made the decision to cut the ties of renting and bought their own home.

Top Realtor Team , California explains the process in 5 easy steps.

Buying or Selling your home? Work with the best Real Estate Agents that this city has to offer because when it comes to buying a home the process can seem overwhelming. But when you work with Ricardo the Realtor Top Team we can keep the process manageable. There are 5 steps that you need to follow. As long as we take each step in order you can avoid running into trouble and becoming frustrated.

Believe us, driving around all over on the weekends, calling on signs is not the way to buy your home. This is why, the Listing real estate agent has the duty to get the highest price for the seller of the home. After all, the current owner is their client and when we represent you we only work for you. Our duty is to get you the very best price.

So first, lets determine how much you qualify for. Lets face it, unless you are an all cash buyer.. financing is the lynch pin of property ownership. I will have our banker call you and walk you through the pre-approval process. Once you are pre-approved, you will need to select an area where you want to live if you do not already know. I will set you up with a client gateway that will show you all the homes listed in your price range that we can go see.

Next, lets get specific with your wants. With the community that you picked out do you envision your new home to be a condo or single family home? Close to work or schools? Big backyard? Extra parking for entertaining? This is really going to help us pin point our search.

Now, onto property tours. We will show you 10 homes in your price range in the area that you want to live in. I want you to focus on certain elements of each property such as:
I like the street but the backyard was to small.
It had a great kitchen but it did not have a pool.

Lastly, let us identify the one. On a an average we will inspect 10 homes over a couple of weekends and we will find the right place based on your criteria. We will prepare a CMA – Comparative Market Analysis to determine if the home is priced correctly. Based on our data we will help you determine a realistic offering price.

As your Top Real Estate Team we will guide you from contract to closing by working with escrow, title companies, appraisers, inspectors, contractors, mortgage company, termite company to secure you a smooth transaction.

If you need to sell your current home we can also help you. Many Realtors still use marketing that only worked years ago and is now obsolete. They are really out of touch with todays technology. The days of sticking a sign in the ground and posting a newspaper ad is not beneficial for todays sellers. We use technology that most agents do not even know exists. We push your marketing dollars to get you the best price.

Please call us so that we can meet and you can see first hand why having us work for you is your best choice. For all of your Real Estate needs and more… Call Ricardo The Realtor.
