Wake me Up!!!

What is motivation? At 24 years old and a world renown producer/DJ, Avicii’s might come to mind when you see his all new 7,007 square feet home in the exclusive hills of Los Angeles. With a price of $15 million, Avicii’s home features six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, modern stylish kitchen, dining room and a lot of social spaces over looking a beautiful skyline. Not to mention, infinity pool, private theatre and garage for all the sport cars. At this point, to keep describing the 24 year old’s home, doesn’t really do justice. Take a look and get inspired…












Prequalification vs. Preapproval

Have you ever gotten one of those prequalified notifications in the mail saying you qualify for so much money towards a new home? Or perhaps you walk into the bank to make a deposit and the teller says in her most excited voice, “You’ve been prequalified for” *insert tempting amount here*?

You proudly take your prequalification offer letter to your Realtor, and for some reason they want a preapproval. Aren’t they the same?

Here’s the Difference


When you are prequalified your credit report is not pulled. The prequalification amount is based off either information that you provided or information that a company my already have for you. Because your credit report is not pulled information such as your social security number is not required.

Beware: a prequalification can be a bit deceiving. Your prequalified amount and preapproval amount could vary greatly based on your credit report.


When you have a preappoval you can shop for a home with confidence. It’s the most accurate of the two options. With a preapproval it takes into account not only the information that you provide, but also your official credit score.

If you are merely window shopping for a home a prequalification will do the trick, but when you are seriously considering a purchase being preapproved will give you the most accurate account of how much home you can really purchase.

Leonardo Sells Malibu for Home $17.35 Million

Ever since July 2012 Titanic star ,Leonardo DiCaprio, has been trying to get rid of his beachfront Malibu home. It was first attempted to rent out in July 2012  for $75,000 a month, and then with an official list, asking $23 Million in November 2012. When that price didn’t get any action they cut the price down again to $18.9 Million. Again that price cut got no bites so the price was cut down to $17.35 Million and has recently sold!

This Malibu house has  seven bedrooms, beautiful greenery, modern gym, two private guest houses, hardwood floors,  gorgeous boardwalk, beach access,  and it is in a prime location inside the body-guarding gates of the celebrity-saturated Malibu Colony neighborhood.

This house is stunning, and the greenery alone is a major selling point in my book! Lets not forget those stunning views! If you are interested in purchasing a piece of prime real-estate such as this, Mr. Real Estate will be able to assist you in the process!
