Autumn is the most beautiful time of the year in Rancho Cucamonga neighborhoods.

Rancho Cucamonga is a Great Place to Live!
Crowned by the majestic San Gabriel Mountains, the three communities of Alta Loma, Cucamonga, and Etiwanda voted to incorporate into the city we now know as Rancho Cucamonga.  Located just 40 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, the City's boundaries cover an area of approximately 38 square miles in San Bernardino County.

Enjoying Rancho Cucamonga in the Rain

 
It's Raining, It's pouring!  I love this time of year . . . The chilly weather,  watching the leaves turn the most beautiful colors, crunchy leaves, hot apple cider, hearing the sound of the fire in the fireplace, the smell of cinnamon scented candles, big comfy throws and all the other wonderful things autumn brings.
Today I enjoyed a lazy Saturday afternoon with KennyG, Boney James and Will Downing Jr.  I was in great company as I surfed the Internet reading ActiveRain blog posts and pinning some stunning images on my Pinterest Boards.

Who Controls the Real Estate Prices in Rancho Cucamonga



As Real Estate Agents we like to think we have some effect on the Rancho Cucamonga home pricing, but we realize home prices are determined largely by the Buyers, and to some degree, the Sellers.  It doesn’t matter how good an Agent is, or how much money they spend marketing the property, if Buyers feel like the sales price is too high, the house won’t sell!  

No amount of skill or marketing on the Agents part will entice a Buyer to pay significantly more than what … (2 comments)
