RainingCalifornia has its fair share of natural disasters, from wildfires to earthquakes – all can damage property and leave residents with costly repairs or even homeless. We have recently seen this with the wildfires that are tearing through Northern California, displacing many residents and prompting FEMA to provide relief in the form of temporary shelter and financial assistance. But there’s another natural disaster that may be looming – severe flooding.

Experts are warning that this winter, Southern California will experience the strongest El Niño storm conditions in 18 years. JPL climatologist Bill Patzert, who has been tracking El Niño on satellites for months, said So Cal should expect heavy rainfall and storms that could trigger flooding and mudslides.

The Perks of Buying a Home in the Fall

posted on September 18th, 2015 | filed under: Buying Strategies, For Sale, Good People, Loving the Lifestyle, Market Update

2111366319_3d0064aef6_zAs we close out a summer marked by rising home prices and limited supply, we’re conditioned to expect the inevitable end-of-season slowdown.
