Farm Talk with Paul Ward – Chatting Real Estate With Uber Drivers

In this week’s show, Paul tells us about his recent business conference in Las Vegas. Over the course of 5 days, he utilized Uber for transportation 10 times, and during those rides, he had an opportunity to chat with each of the drivers. The info he gathered, although not statistical, was really quite interesting!

Paul learned that, out of the 10 drivers, only one was a native to Las Vegas – all the other drivers had come from different locations, and 2 had even come from different countries. They were attracted to Las Vegas for the low cost of living and were able to earn approximately $30,000 being an Uber driver.

When one of the Uber drivers asked Paul if he had any important tips about real estate, he was very happy to help! Tune in and hear what valuable info Paul shared with her – it’s great info we all need to know!

Farm Talk with Paul Ward – 4H Livestock Auction! Auction Day is August 9.

The 2019 Ventura County Fair is here!  Paul is very dedicated to, and involved with, lending his support to the 4-H kids who enter the Ventura County Fair with their animals.  They send him letters and photos of their animals!

Today, on Farm Talk, Paul reads some of the letters that he has recently received from a few of the 4H kids he has helped with his sponsorship.  Paul makes what is called an “add-on contribution”. Add-on contributions are a great way to support the 4-H participants, and help offset the cost of raising the animal.

Today’s letters are from middle school kids & upper elementary school kids.  The letters give us an idea of what kinds of kids are involved in the 4H program.

The first letter is from Clara, who is 14 years old, and is going into 8th grade in Camarillo, California. She says she has raised a lamb, named Roger, and a goat, and has recently been elected co-vice president of her club. She invites Paul to visit them at the Fair.

Tune in to hear more great stories on this heartwarming show that is sure to bring a smile to your face!

Farm Talk with Paul Ward – Zoning in Ventura County

Paul Ward

Paul Ward educates and enlightens us concerning everything we should know about zoning in Ventura County.

Did you know that there are zoning ‘categories’? Paul explains that there are 2 specific categories to be aware of: AE and OS.

AE refers to ‘Agriculture Exclusive’ which allows for most farming activities and also allows for building a primary residence, building a guest-house, a workshop barn or an equestrian barn on the property.

OS is all about ‘Open Spaces’, which you might think would be the easiest to obtain because it allows for more uses such as: a dog kennel business, Wedding venue, B & B and other businesses. The challenge is that you must have a Conditional Use Permit to obtain these businesses and those are not always that easy to get. Often, the neighboring residents get involved because of the potential increase in traffic and noise.

Paul breaks down the description of each zoning category as well as the Conditional Use Permit.

This is a very interesting episode full of excellent information.  Tune in to learn more!

Farm Talk with Paul Ward – Liquid Gold

In today’s episode of Farm Talk, Paul discusses liquid gold (or water, as it’s known in California).  Farm properties in California are all about water – not just the availability of water, but also the cost of water.

Here in Southern California, summer is the arid time of year and farming is completely reliant on transporting water long distances.  So, how we value farm properties is largely based on the cost of water.  Neighboring properties can have drastically different water costs.  One property could be low and yet the property across the street could be twice, three times, or even four times as expensive!

So when people are looking for farms, one of the primary questions is “What is the source of water?”.  If it is county water, it can be significantly more expensive than well water.

Paul explains in detail how the water costs vary, and he breaks it down so that it is very easy to understand things like “acre feet”, and what the water cost of each acre of your farm may be per year.  Water can become so expensive on some properties that it makes certain properties better for equestrian use, rather than farming.

This is a very interesting episode full of excellent information.  Tune in to learn more!

Farm Talk with Paul Ward – The benefits of using pods.

WELCOME to another addition of FARM TALK with Paul Ward.

Today, Paul tells us about a ’Moving Day secret’ which he actually used during his last family move. It made the moving process “So much easier…” he said.

The idea of using portable Pods, that specific moving companies have available, can make life a lot easier. Lets say you want to paint or remodel your new place before moving in with your furniture. The moving company will take your furniture and move it into the pods while the painting or remodel work is being done, and store it for you.

Another benefit of using pods is the fact that by keeping the furniture in a pod, there’s less chance of items being broken or damaged, due to it being handled no more than twice. It is a much safer way to store your furniture or items until you are ready for them.

 Listen here and save some time and $$ on your next move.
