January is always an ideal time to circle back to our roots, to review our long term goals, and realign with our True North. It’s a fresh new year, and anything is possible. Many people are taking a look at what needs to change, and if 2021 is any indication, we are still switching up the way we live and work in light of all that’s happened the last couple years.

As we saw people quit their jobs and aspire for extraordinary things in the year of ‘The Great Resignation‘, we also saw a huge shift in housing needs and requirements. People ‘quit’ apartments & condos, and opted for single family homes with yards. Families upgraded living space, as employment and schools had extended virtual runs. Change is still happening everywhere, and home is at the center of it all.

Homeownership Day education has been opening doors for renters, homeowners, and investors for 10 years.

With so many people wanting a new environment at the same time, the demand for housing across the country reached record heights and the bidding wars began.

This is just one of the many reasons we offer Homeownership Day on a yearly basis; things always seem to be moving fast when it comes to housing, and it’s important to stay on top of the current trends to be most successful with your real estate.

Achieving Through Real Estate

The 2022 theme for Homeownership Day is ‘Achieving Through Real Estate’, and all are invited to this free virtual event on January 29th from 10am-1pm PST. Homeownership Day is designed to be inclusive for all humans – from renters curious if they can purchase property all the way through investors looking to sharpen skills and knowledge. Our program changes up each year so you aren’t hearing the same information, or outdated perspectives.

The program is brought to you in bite-sized 30 minute educational sessions, so you can get a variety of information on today’s important real estate topics. We know you’re busy, and this event is designed to bring about awareness and build relationships with the right community to accomplish your property goals.

Challenges in the recent market have been lack of inventory, bidding wars, discrimination, sharp price increases, loan / appraisal turnaround time, and more. Sessions for this year have been based around these challenges, and offer help to overcome today’s specific real estate market hurdles.

Expect to be inspired with some innovative ideas and fresh perspectives. This is not your average real estate event.

In case you’re wondering, Homeownership Day will never try to pressure you into buying or selling real estate. The speakers have all agreed not to ‘pitch’; only to educate. This event is a public service that is put on through multiple outlets, so you’re never getting pigeon holed into the opinions of one particular corporation or company. Our speakers are industry experts, all hand selected with care, and our goal is YOUR success.

This year’s main sponsors are NAWRB & Vow2Save – both entities creatively serving the real estate ecosystem.

It’s my personal opinion that when we are all successful with real estate, we can focus on what is most important in life – the people and the places we love. If there’s a topic you would like to see covered at a future Homeownership Day event, please comment below so we can help you on your journey.

Where is YOUR happy place? Homeownership Day 2021 is going virtual, nationwide, & global.

Hi friends!

Although 2020 has been a challenging year for all of us, it has not been without some unexpected benefits. One of them is the new age of virtual employment, which has opened doors for so many to have an opportunity at homeownership. Individuals previously forced to rent in expensive urban areas are now free to move to a larger place, for less money, and have more options. We’re all about that – and Orange County Young Professionals Network is here to support your adventure!

Simple Solutions to Buying, Selling, & Investing in Real Estate

To that end, in 2021 YPN will do our annual Homeownership Day event virtually, and it won’t just be about investing in Southern California real estate. Instead, we’ll be offering local expert agent guidance in many popular cities across the United States, and actually the entire world.

If you haven’t looked at your home as an investment, or considered property as a path toward early retirement, we encourage you to attend the event on January 23, 2021 and look at your real estate in a new light. YES, it’s a place to thrive, to make memories, to customize your taste, to raise your family. But it can be so much more.

You can turn one property into a legacy, and that’s the session I teach & am passionate about. This year’s title is “Concepts to Become An Automatic Millionaire in Southern California & Beyond”; you can register for this 30 minute session by filling out the form below. I’ll educate you on a safe, secure, and timeless strategy for building up your real estate portfolio. These concepts don’t encourage you to stretch yourself too thin, take on a second job, or become a handyman; they are simple and easy to follow. And you can learn them in 30 minutes. I’ll tell you what – if you’ll just commit the time – I’m here to cheerlead you to the finish line.

Owning Property Can Change Your Future

As many of you know, I have been personally working on this strategy for over 15 years now! Because Real Estate is my full time job, we’ve taken it to the next level with vacation rentals, and the creation of Flower Den Retreats. I have found that owning property allows me to truly express myself, whether I’m creating art within, or dreaming up the next concept for a therapeutic space with the ones I love.

I want you to be able to flourish in your space too – are you? If you are, please comment what you love about your home below. Its fun to share our unique ideas 🙂 If you aren’t, fill out the form here and let’s get you on your way in 2021.

If you’re curious to hear what other previous attendees have to say, success stories, or info on the sessions we’ve held in the past, just subscribe to our YouTube Channel. We’ll be uploading new content on the regular. Here’s a video from a couple previous attendees who were able to buy a townhome with barely any money down, and now they are happily raising a family there.

Let Homeownership Day Lead You to Your Happy Place

Sometimes, change is good 🙂 To have a supportive tribe around you as you grow is so helpful, and that’s exactly what you’ll get out of Homeownership Day. Like minded people who want to learn and level up too. All the speakers are no-pressure, happy to answer questions, and excited to connect with you. The vibe of this event will be fresh, fun, educational, and there won’t be a single pitch. Promise. We’ll see you online Jan 23rd!

PS. If you know someone who should be presenting at this event, just connect us by emailing ochomefair@gmail.com & the committee will reach out to them – we love new angles of education and to connect with other professionals across the globe.

5 Benefits You Need To Know About VA Loans

To All of Our Veterans – Thank You. Happy Memorial day! 

The VA loan is a mortgage loan that is designed to help eligible veterans finance their home with no down payment – guaranteed by the US Department of Veterans Affairs.

5 Benefits You Need To Know About VA Loans

1. No down payment required!

The VA loan is a $0 down payment mortgage – available to Veterans, Service Members and certain military spouses. Conventional loans typically require a down payment that can be as high as 20%. While there is no down payment required, there is a VA Funding Fee. The fee is a governmental fee that is applied to every VA loan. This fee can change based on different circumstances and factors.

2. No Mortgage Insurance! 

Private Mortgage Insurance is a type of mortgage insurance that is required for borrowers who finance more than 80% of their home’s value. This is a monthly cost (or one-time upfront premium) that is added to a traditional mortgage loan. Because the VA Loans are government backed, Private Mortgage Insurance is not required by the banks! This is a huge savings for homeowners.

3. Easier to Qualify! 

These loans are backed by the government so that means banks assume that there is less risk involved. These loans do not have as many qualification standards as traditional home loans. These loans are easier to obtain and allow for more credit and income flexibility.

4. VA Loan Closing Costs Are Lower!

Another cost saving perk – the VA limits the closing costs lenders can charge to VA loan applicants. The average closing cost of the loan is between 1% – 3% of the loan amount. The percentage can raise to 3% – 5% if the home is less expensive. Your real estate agent can request the seller to cover some closing costs for you – reducing more costs for you.

5. The VA Loan Is Reusable! 

These loans are not just a one-time benefit. If you have earned this benefit, you have it for life! There is no limit on the number of times you may use the loan. The VA loan has accessibility to different property types, you could re-use it to buy a house, condo, new-built home, manufactured home, duplex or other types of properties It can even be used to refinance your existing mortgage.
