Trending Now: Prepping Homes for Doomsday

Fearful Citizens are Preparing for the Worst Here’s what their Homes Look Like The apocalypse has become big business. And it’s getting bigger every day In the ’50s, homeowners fearing Communist attacks built bunkers in their backyards and basements, hung up a few “God Bless Our Bomb Shelter” signs and called it a Cold War. But today, Americans en masse are again preparing for the worst—and Communists are just about the only thing not on their list. What is? Terrorist attacks, a total economic collapse, perhaps even zombie invasions. Or maybe just a complete societal breakdown after this November’s scorched-Earth presidential election. But this is not your Uncle Travis’ guns-and-canned-foods-militia vision of Armageddon preparedness. While the …

401 Newport Avenue: From Historic Beauty Salon to Gorgeous Updated Home for Sale Every Home has a Story – Here’s one of my Favorites Every home has a history, yet as a Realtor, I don’t usually have much time to stop and think about the history of the home because I’m focused on what’s there now: from the layout, flooring, and cabinets, to the roof and the foundation. Yet sometimes I’m reminded of the transformations and stages homes go through in their lives, and 401 Newport in Long Beach  is one of those times. I first saw 401 Newport when it …

Is Now A Good Time To “Move Up”?

shannonjones Featured Articles , Real Estate Leave a Comment

If You’re Thinking of Buying and Selling, Is Now A Good Time? The answer is yes! Now is a great time to move up.
