MSF Charity Golf Event

msfcharitygolfevent2014Today’s the day! The Mountain Shadows Foundation 22nd Annual Fall Classic Golf Tournament begins today at the Santa Luz Club with a putting contest at 9:30 am followed by a shotgun start scramble at 11:00 am.  The GoldenWest Management team will have a presence on the 14th tee to cheer golfers on and raise money for the foundation.  As described in a previous post, we will be posting pictures from the event to our social media accounts.  However, we have modified the hashtag to ‘#msfcharitygolf’ in case you’d like to check out the action throughout the day.

Again, thank you all for your support, and here’s the link to our Fundrazr campaign if you’d like to donate to the charity.

 

Mountain Shadows Foundation: Raising Awareness (and Money) for a Great Cause

Mountain Shadows Foundation LogoAt Goldenwest Management, we pride ourselves on running a values-based property management service.  Two of the values of GWM are community and charity.  We believe in helping to make our communities stronger, and to support our favorite charities on a regular basis.  Our upcoming charity event, The Mountain Shadows Foundation annual “Fall Classic Golf Tournament” is the perfect event to put both of these values in action.  Held at the Santaluz Club in San Diego, this tournament supports the Mountain Shadows Support Group of San Diego County.  The mission of this group is best described in the statement below taken from the MSF website.

Home Values Appreciating in California and Nevada

According to a report released by CoreLogic today, California and Nevada are among the nation leaders in home value appreciation.  CoreLogic uses what it calls it’s Home Price Index (HPI) to track home sales, and measure the change in value over time.  The average gains were actually very good for California and Nevada in the August 2014 report:

Including distressed sales, the five states with the highest home price appreciation were:  Michigan (+11.1 percent), California (+9.2 percent), Nevada (+9.2 percent), Maine (+9 percent) and West Virginia (+8.7 percent).

This should serve as uplifting news to landlords and property investors (and those currently looking to get into the market) in those states.
