by Brad Schmett Although we have had some world-class stars here in the Coachella Valley in concert and in shows, few have reached the pinnacle of fame that Peter Frampton has. From his birth in 1950 in England through an illustrious career that continues right up until today, Peter Frampton has become one of the most famous and best loved rock ‘n roll artists in history. His Grammy award-winning discography includes 17 best-selling albums of international acclaim. His first album was Wind of Change in 1972 followed by Frampton’s Camel in 1973 and almost annually after that. Into the 80’s we saw Breaking All the Rules, The Art of Control in 1982, Premonition in …

by Brad Schmett You just can’t separate the lowest possible interest rate from your FICO score. They are inextricably bound together and for good reason. FICO scores of 700 and above tell lenders that you are a person who pays your bills and are a good bet for a home loan. Maybe this scoring system isn’t always fair and doesn’t always make sense but it is the system that all the mortgage lenders use and we would all do well to know how it works. It really isn’t all that complicated. Essentially, lenders want to know if you pay your bills on time. But they also want to know if you max out your …

by Brad Schmett With Valley home prices increasing every year and values climbing, Coachella Valley homeowners are paying more attention than ever to their home insurance policies. Although lenders do require certain types of insurance, they don’t always insist on enough or a wide enough range of policy coverages.
