Undeclared Dance Crew Open Enrollment!

Looking for something for your kids to do during the summer? Look no further! Keep them active and away from the TV this summer by introducing them to dance! Local Hip-Hop Dance team Undeclared Dance Crew is having open enrollment this Thursday on June 5th, 2014 for kids between the ages 4-15! No dance experience is required and it is a great program that will help to build confidence in the kids as well as introduce them to the performing aspect of dance and being social with other children their age. The program is sponsored by and takes place at the Oxnard Police Activities League (PAL) and is ran by Director Byron Bucao who started the program almost 11 years ago! With how much dancing the program introduces the kids too, it is AMAZING at how much they progress and how much more they grow as both dancers and as individuals.

For Inquiries of anything else feel free to email emanondancecompany@gmail.com

Oxnard Pal, 350 S K Street, Oxnard CA

Hope to See you this Thursday!

Update: Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP 2.0)

If you purchased your Ventura County home before May 31, 2009, I have some bad news for you, but I also have some good news for you.

First the bad news, which is probably old news,… your house may be underwater. Your mortgage amount is now more that the value of your home. Not exactly what you hoped for when you bought your beautiful new home.

Now the good news,… the Federal government recently streamlined and relaxed some its guidelines on its Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) which it initiated in April 2009 to help homeowners, stay homeowners. HARP 2.0 is an upgrade over the original program which might provide significant relief for some of our Ventura County neighbors. Under HARP 2.0, in most cases, there are no LTV (Loan To Value) limits and no appraisal is required.

HARP 2.0 may work for you, even if your mortgage balance is higher than the present value of your home.

So, if you wanted to refinance your home, but had concerns about your property value or your credit score, your might want to click on the HARP 2.0 link on the menu bar of this blog to see if you might be eligible for a HARP refinance.

This information is accurate of the date of this post.

Vote For Your Favorite NFL Team – Poll Ends Aug. 24th

Whatever happened to baseball, hot dogs and apple pie? In Oxnard, it looks like they’ve been replaced by the Dallas Cowboys, carne asada and boba drinks. Over the past few weeks we’ve seen cars lined up on Ventura Road filled with people decked out in Silver & Blue gear proudly sporting “The Star“. It looks like “The Boys” are Ventura County’s Favorite NFL team as well as RiverPark’s. Are they really, or are these people pouring into the Dallas Training Camp mostly out-of-towners?

We’re just curious. Register your vote below and let’s see if “America’s Team” is “Ventura County’s Team”.

How Does Wingfield/Orbela Compare?

The following article was posted on The 805 blog back in October 2010. As you can see, not much has changed for our local residents.

Ventura County is a fabulous place to live. The residents of The Gold Coast, as it is often referred to as, enjoy one of the best climates on Earth according to National Geographic. They also enjoy the advantages of living next to the Pacific Ocean, the Wine Country of Santa Barbara, and the metropolitan culture of Los Angeles. It is, without a doubt, one of the most desirable places to live in the world. We have it all! 

Unfortunately, this includes all of the financial pain the current Recession/Depression is causing a large percentage of families who live in beautiful Ventura County. Despite the candy-coated proclamations by some financial and political pundits who insist that The Recession has ended, the foundations of our families continue to be shaken, not by California temblors, but by the threat of losing their homes. 

A Policy Brief published by the Center For Responsible Lending in November 2009 cuts through the BS we hear from some of the Pollyannas in the mass media. The brief starts with the following: “Reckless and abusive lending practices have left California victim to a foreclosure crisis with catastrophic consequences for families, communities, and the state economy. Recent assessments and reports from policy analysts, industry insiders and the media suggest that the catastrophe is over: a bottoming of the housing and stock markets, the end of the recession, and the “green shoots” of recovery are all on the horizon. But the crisis is far from over in California. Indeed, with over one million mortgage foreclosures looming, continuing record levels of unemployment and a worsening state budget that will bring more reductions in state and local services, California is not yet out of the woods.” 

Orbela Homes

How many more people and their families will suffer in Ventura County? According to Deutsche Bank‘s Estimation of Percent of Home Borrowers Underwater (i.e. owe more on their home loan than their home is worth), 36.9% of Ventura County Home Borrowers were underwater as of the 1st Quarter of 2009. By the 1st Quarter of 2011, 47% of Ventura County Home Borrowers will be Underwater and in severe financial distress. Chances are, you are part of the 47%, and the chances are good, that you can prevent from drowning if you know where the life preservers are. 

If you don’t know where the life preservers are, stay tuned to this blog.

What Is This Blog All About?

Wingfield411 is a community blog focused on, of all things,… Wingfield! It is our hope that our fellow residents will find it as a valuable resource for neighborhood news, happenings, exclusive offers from Wingfield/Oxnard businesses, and just about anything that impacts our quality of life in this unique community. This blog should also be used when Facebook and Twitter aren’t sufficient for residents to voice their opinions, advertise their goods/services, or show off their kids and pets.

Yes, it’s true that we are REALTORS for Prudential California Realty here in Oxnard. One of us (Phil) has been with them since 2002. The other (Darryl) has been with Prudential since 2011. But we work and make our living across the street from Wingfield and obviously have an interest in the maintenance of the promise the master developer and city of Oxnard made to the first homeowner in this community. Our unique position as a REALTORS allows us to share the actual Ventura County Coastal Association of Realtors (VCCAR) Multiple Listing Data (MLS) with you on this blog. It’s not sugar-coated data you might see on other sites, or out of date, or out of area data that plague sites like Zillow or Trulia, or even the national Realtor.com site. Nope. The data we post here is the real deal, and pinpoints Wingfield area real estate exclusively.

Although we hope you will call on us if you ever have the need to sell, buy or rent real estate, Wingfield411 is not intended to be primarily a real estate page. You won’t see any Prudential logos on this blog.

In fact, we intend to distance ourselves from this blog by appointing a few of our neighbors to help edit and provide content for Wingfield411. If you have some spare time and want to help out, send us an email to phil@ac805.com
