California is coming for your natural gas

California is coming for your natural gas

Is legislating no more natural gas a good thing or a bad thing for Californians?

The trend is becoming impossible to ignore. More and more communities are making it illegal to build new homes with natural gas. In fact, it sounds like the ultimate goal is to eliminate natural gas all together and ultimately require home owners to replace gas appliances with electric options. This seems like an odd move when California has still not solved its electric grid issues. In fact, in the ultimate irony, California is moving power plants over to natural gas . So while you won’t be able to have it in your home, the state is using it to generate your power. Whats more, California has no hope of meeting the demand for electricity until at least 2023. Do we think that forcing more Californians to use electricity will make this better?

So today we will chat about this and consider it from a owner and investor standpoint.

Complicated houses make bad investments


Homes with “special needs” that cannot be made simple can be poor investments.

Welcome to another edition of Real Estate Realities with The RebelBroker! It is time to lay some ground truth on you! Over the last few weeks, I have had to deal with some things that would be a nightmare for any homeowner – and even more so for a landlord! We will talk about that and how some homes, for whatever reason, are just not a good choice for long term renting. Of course, if you overcome that shortcoming with a change, that could actually be a way to get the property for a better price – but some things cannot be changed. We will discuss that a bit.

We will also reflect a bit on what it takes to take those first steps as an investor.We will be literally talking about square one. Not how much to spend, or where to look for the best investment but how to get your head straight and ready to play the game!

Some Ranting About Stupid Real Estate Agents


Well, maybe not JUST ranting, but I really needed it.

It was one of those days where I wanted to get into starting our discussion about how to move forward with a good review of the year and setting goals for the coming year. What can I say, I digressed. I have been really poking around for multi unit properties lately and I was stunned by the incompetence I found. So we will chat about that and other things!

I will also include a clarification regarding my last podcast. During that show, we ran through the numbers on a sample property and I used the wrong number for my calculations. I will take a minute at the end of todays show to give you the low down on the right process and numbers.
