by Rob Zwemmer
google map to real pro systemsCome home to Mountain View Country Club in La Quinta, California.  Featuring both single family homes as well as a condominium community known as “The Village,” Mountain View Country Club offers considerable luxury to those who decide to relocate here.  Unlike some other residential golf clubs. The architecture inside Mountain View is distinctly Spanish styled in keeping with the history of the area.

Just as appealing as Mountain View, the city of La Quinta, California offers entertaining shopping and dining for all ages and interests.  For more traditional Spanish architecture and fabulous window shopping, Old Town La Quinta is just a few minutes away from Mountain View and features boutiques, shops, cafes and restaurants.  This charming location on Main Street runs from addresses 78 through 100 and promises something appealing for just about anyone.  Every day shopping needs such as groceries and items for the home can be found at The Plaza at Point Happy, One Eleven La Quinta and Town and Country shopping centers all located on Highway 111.  If it’s mouth watering cuisine you’re after, you won’t even have to leave Mountain View.  The dining room at the clubhouse features five-star quality entrees every day as well as fun family events like Pizza and Pasta Night.  Check it out when you come to browse Mountain View homes for sale.  There’s also no better place to hold your special event whether its an intimate group party such as a wedding shower for 10 or an anniversary party for 50 or more, the hospitality staff at Mountain View are eager to accommodate you.  If you do decide to enjoy an afternoon or night on the town, check out Arnold Palmer’s restaurant or any one of La Quinta’s delicious dining options including Desert Sage Restaurant and Piano Bar, Solano’s Bistro or Ros Amarillo’s Mexican Restaurant (less than a half mile from the club) in nearby Indio.

What Does Your Credit Report Have to Say?

by Rob Zwemmer

What Does Your Credit Report Have to Say?

Have you checked lately? Your credit report is a complete summary of your personal information including existing debts and payment history, current and past information such as names, addresses and public records. It’s a collection of information provided by credit bureaus from your creditors. The agencies compiling data can sometime make unfortunate errors that will reflect negatively on the report and influence your all-important credit score. Keep an eye on your credit report, review it regularly, and exercise your right to dispute any inaccurate information, and request to have it removed from their records. You are permitted one free annual credit report from each of the credit reporting agencies to make sure your information is complete and accurate—and you haven’t been the victim of identity theft. The agencies are Equifax, Experian and Trans Union. Carefully review the information when you receive a copy of your credit report, and check for any variations in your name, social security number, or if addresses appear that have never been associated with you. Check the payment amounts and balances due. Make certain there are no delinquent medical bills, student loans, or any collection accounts on the report. Make a note of all inaccuracies, and send a dispute letter immediately to the credit reporting agency. Clearly outline the information that is incorrect or obsolete and provide the documentation to support your claim along with a picture ID. Request the information is removed and the report updated immediately.

The Fair Credit Reporting Act allows you 30 days for a full dispute investigation. When the investigation is complete, you will be notified of the information that has been removed from your credit file, and will be provided with an updated copy of your credit history.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Canadian Retirement Visa Nears ‘A Go’

 

 

 

 

La Quinta, CA—October 25, 2011— After an over 15-year lobbying process and countless meetings with US senators, immigration attorneys and other political decision makers, ‘The Retirement Visa’ is a ‘near- go’. The visa will allow Canadians, aged 50-plus, to spend as much as 250 days annually within the United States without the worry of complex immigration issues. The bill, S. 1746, also proposes a homeownership visa allowing Canadians of any age to live within the US year-round, while saving a significant amount in income taxes. To qualify, a Canadian citizen would need to spend at least $500,000 in acquiring a home within the United States.


This visa bill is a ‘win-win’, costing virtually nothing while simultaneously serving as a job creator and assisting Canadians in tax reduction. They will have the opportunity to enjoy a lower cost-of-living experience in a warmer climate with a myriad of enriching lifestyle opportunities far away from the snow. Although Canadians will not be able to go to work on the retirement or homeownership visas, they can provide a bridge leading to a ‘work visa’ with proper immigration planning. The bill is currently working its way through Congress, and expected to become law within the first quarter of 2012.

Updates will be provided by Rob Zwemmer and Associates of the Keller Williams Luxury Home Division in La Quinta, CA.

Money-Saving Ideas

by Rob Zwemmer

Money-Saving Ideas

The past few years have been challenging times for us all. There has never been a better time to implement common sense, money-saving strategies to stay on track and on budget, so you will come out ahead on the other side.

Establish a Monthly Budget.
Add up and confirm the rock-bottom total of all your living expenses and income; then you will know the exact amount of money you have to spend—and how much will be left over to go right into savings. You will want to plan on saving at least 15 percent of your monthly income.

Assess Your Expenses and Make the Cuts.
Itemize all of your living expenses and apply simple logic when determining which items and services you really don’t need. Create lists when shopping for groceries and sundries, and stick to it; resist the temptation of impulse buying because something looks like a good deal. Taper down your household services, and downgrade to more cost-effective plans from your cable or satellite TV and cell phone providers. Give up memberships to gyms and clubs that you do not use on a regular basis.

Pay With Cash Whenever Possible.
Credit cards are for emergencies only. Keep your debit card and plenty of green in your pocket, so you are not charging up balances you will end up paying for years to come at high percentage rates.

Check for Discounts & Money-Saving Coupons.
Do your homework over the Internet and find sites offering money-saving coupons and discounts for shops and services in your area.

Conserve Resources. It’s not only great for the environment... it’s great on the pocketbook. Keep an eye on your thermostat, check run times for water irrigation systems, and keep lights and household appliances off when not in use and purchase energy-efficient light bulbs. Conserve and preserve. You will see the difference!
We work hard to obtain our money, so spend it wisely, save it wisely, and you will come out ahead of the game.

Simple Computer Tune-Ups

by Rob Zwemmer

Simple Computer Tune-ups

 Ever had that experience when you needed to download something fast, or wanted to find that webpage in a hurry, and your computer had other ideas? If your computer has started running slowly, is crashing frequently, or taking more than 90 seconds to start-up or open a software application, you are in need of a tune-up. Often times you can perform a few simple scans and file deletions yourself to optimize the computer and restore it to its level best.

Take a look at your list of programs, including the start-up items, and see how many are being used. Seek and find unwanted files and folders that act as memory zappers on your hard drive and immediately delete them. Through your Control Panel, uninstall all the programs you rarely or never use


As you surf the web day after day, a large amount of files, tracking cookies, etc., build up and get stored on your computer, further undermining its performance and reducing productivity. After you have deleted all of this excess clutter and created more space on your hard drive, you will want to defragment the hard disk. Files tend to get fragmented over time and scattered to different points of the hard disk, leading to diminished performance as well. Run the utility, Disk Defragmenter, an integrated feature of Windows OS that will rearrange the data and place it in correct order to restore seamless software operation.


A “corrupt registry” is another reason your computer may be running slow. When you download files and install various programs on your computer, it also allows useless registry entries to deposit on the hard drive. These entries increase over time, also attributing to the slow and inefficient computer performance you have been experiencing. To fix these registry errors you will need to scan and repair, utilizing

a trusted software program. Many tune-up software solutions are available as free downloads, so check out Microsoft.com or CNET.com for more information.
