    Logic follows that the second largest city in the United States has just as many residences for its varied and large population. Los Angeles real estate is a huge industry, for a huge metropolis. There are more than 17 million people in the combined statistical area of this part of the USA. As of 2011, there were approximately 3.5 million housing units in Los Angeles County with, on average, three people per household. In those homes, 36% have children under the age of 18, 47% were married couples living together and 14% had a female householder with no husband. For a county made up of 88 different cities, that is a lot of people, and a lot of housing. The housing market has been fluctuating wildly across the US, but might see some stability in spring. The median sales price for previously owned homes has risen for the 11th month in a row. The National Association of Realtors has provided information in a recent press release that shows that homes sales rose in every region but the west for the month of January. In the west, sellers market may be developing. Los Angeles real estate might not be great for the buyer; however, when a hot property suddenly goes on sale, it might be a good option to keep ones eyes open.

    Nearly, 42% of the housing units in Los Angeles County real estate are multiple unit structures like apartment buildings. The median value for a home is $400,000 and the homeownership rate is 47.9%. Over half of the people living in Los Angeles County are renting, which is an excellent thing for the owners because that will help to reduce their mortgages. Whether you are looking to buy a home as an asset, to rent out while you live somewhere else, or if you are looking to settle down, Los Angeles real estate will have options for you throughout the entire county.

    Among the major cities of the world, Los Angeles (LA) is one of the craziest, busiest, biggest and all-around strangest in the world. Tokyo may be bigger, New York may be faster, but LA is the hub for the entertainment industry. Los Angeles real estate reflects the star-studded appeal given by many homes that are beautiful, large and state-of-the-art. Because when you make more than a million dollars a year, it is nice to have a place that reflects that income and is also good for putting your feet up.

    Coming back to the logic, if there are a many homes in Los Angeles and the surrounding area, then there will be a lot of real estate agents and companies.

    When people near the age of 60, they start thinking of moving to a new housing location. There are several reasons for the person to move to a new housing location. They might want to live near their children or their current neighborhood is unsafe for elderly people. The current home might contain a number of rooms that are located in the upper floor and to reach that the old person may have to climb up the stairs, which could be difficult with the old person’s health. After retiring, the person might be looking to live a completely different lifestyle, which may not be available in the current house.

    Various studies have come out with findings that the seniors want to move away from the city and enjoy a peaceful life in a semi urban or a rural area. There are actually a number of housing options available to choose from for a 60+ senior. There are age restricted retirement communities, which come with all the facilities required to lead a healthy life style. Some of the facilities that are available in this community include tennis courts, swimming pools, spas, fitness centers and golf courses.

    Another option that is available for the senior citizen are apartments exclusively constructed for seniors. This is different from the community in the aspect that the senior person will get to stay in an apartment rather than in an individual house. But still he gets to enjoy all the benefits that are available in the individual house.

    Shared housing is another popular option that seniors have started to explore. In this approach, the seniors will be sharing their house with another senior or one senior person can move and stay with another senior person in his/her house. Most seniors don’t want to be alone and they want to be active in their later years by communicating and interacting with a number of similarly aged persons.

    There is also the option of continuous care retirement community where the elderly person will be given the additional care like support for doing daily chores. This support can also be in the form of medical support where a qualified nurse will be at the side for providing assistance and treatment for the ailing senior person. The other options available include Alzheimer’s facilities, which are an assisted living community for the seniors who are in their early stages of Alzheimer’s.

    October 11, 2010 San Francisco, CA –

    Quantum Art announces a new market focus on Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provisioning of its proven .NET Web CMS Platform.

    Quantum Art designs, develops and manages on-demand business solutions utilizing its SaaS CMS platform. Trends in the industry reveal a growing interest in what Quantum Art previously marketed as QP7.Subscribe — a Software-as-a-Service version of QP7, their .NET-based web content management solution. Organizations are increasingly prepared to trust their vital processes and data to SaaS because of this provisioning models advantages. These include a significantly lower up-front capital cost, instant scalability, and multi-tenant efficiencies.

    “There are thousands of CMS companies, but only dozens of them that are enterprise-class with a mid-market price, and only three of those are SaaS. We are the only one of those three that would be classified as a Platform (vs. a Product) by the leading industry analyst,” writes Mark McGee, the Managing Director of Global Operations at Quantum Art.

    The Real Story Group classifies both of Quantum Art’s competitors in the SaaS CMS space as “Mid-Range Products,” whereas Quantum Art’s CMS would be classified as a “Mid-Range Platform” according to their criteriaand is unique in that category because of the SaaS provisioning model.

    According to John Austin of The CMS Insider’s Blog, a platform is a “better fit” for organizations with complex needs than a productespecially if they expect the solution to have a long life-cycle. In a ‘productized’ CMS, many important decisions have been made in advance to simplify the solution design process, eliminating the crucial flexibility that a platform like Quantum Art’s can provide.

    Since 2005, Cities, Counties, NPOs, and businesses have been running public and private sites and web applications on QP7.Subscribe, one of the earliest SaaS CMS options in the market.

    Recently, Goodwill Industries of San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin Counties launched a new site on the Quantum Art SaaS Platform. Features include an interactive donation and store locator, links to the eBay and Amazon sites, a donation module, a job board and more — helping the community with online tools. For more information about the Goodwill Industries site and others are using Quantum Arts platform to achieve their goals, visit the Case Studies section of the site.

    After disappearing from the mainstream mortgage market for nearly 5 years, stated income and no income mortgages are finally making a comeback.

    You may remember stated income loans – these are the ones in which borrower state their income on the loan application but are not required to provide supporting documentation such as tax returns, paycheck stubs or W-2s.

    Primarily used by business owners with generous write-offs up until late 2006, stated income loans are now available for both self-employed and W-2 employees. The general guidelines for stated income loans are as follows:

    Up to 70% loan-to-value Loan amounts up to $1,000,000 Minimum credit score of 700 Property must be located in California Debt-to-income ratios not to exceed 40% Property must be the borrower’s primary residence Purchase, rate and term refinance, or cash out refinance allowed Single-family homes, condominiums, townhomes and 2-4 units properties The income stated must be reasonable in relation to the position of employment No tax returns, W-2, paycheck stubs, or 4506-T are required Borrowers must be U.S. citizen or permanent residents Self-employed or W-2 employees allowed

    Unlike a stated income loan, where the borrower is required to state their income, on a no income mortgage the income section of the loan application is left blank and the borrower’s debt-to-income ratios are not calculated.

    No income mortgages are available for both self-employed and W-2 employees, and may be used to purchase or refinance a primary residence, second home, or investment property. The general guidelines for no income mortgages are as follows:

    Up to 65% loan-to-value Loan amounts up to $2,000,000 No minimum credit score required Property must be located in California Borrower may finance up to 3 properties under this program Purchase, rate and term refinance, or cash out refinance allowed Single-family homes, condominiums, townhomes and 2-4 units properties allowed Primary residence, second home or investment properties allowed No tax returns, W-2, paycheck stubs, or 4506-T are required Income section on the loan application is left blank Debt-to-income ratios are not calculated Self-employed or W-2 employees allowed Borrowers may be U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or foreign nationals

    This is the perfect opportunity for people who are unable to qualify for a traditional full documentation mortgage to purchase or refinance a primary residence, second home or investment property.
