The easiest way is to become a homeowner.  “The average renter in the United States has less than $5,000 in wealth.  The average homeowner has nearly $200,000, which is 40 times as much wealth as a renter… Most of their wealth is their home and they built up this wealth by owning a home instead of renting one.  The easiest way to become wealthy is to become a homeowner.  It really is as simple as that.” - Houseonomics: Why Owning a Home is Still a Great Investment by Smith, G. & M.

619.316.7445 Rachell Lara Alpine Neighborhood Specialist and San Diego Realtor® Homes for Sale in Alpine Alpine Homes for Sale Newest listings in Alpine  For the past couple of month Alpine has averaged about 43 homes active on the market. When a couple go into escrow a couple more come on the market. It wasn't that long ago that we averaged between 70 and 120 homes for sale. Right now Alpine's housing inventory is LEAN. Where there was once lots of choice currently there isn't much. There is only 2 condos on the market and that is because one of them fell out of escrow this morning. There are only 2 houses in Crown Hills for sale and one of them is a manufactured home. The Old Ranch has not one active listing and the New Ranch has just 3. It is definitely a good time to be a seller.  ...

Now technically this picture was not taken this weekend and there was no pool day. The pools still need to heat up a bit. Many of our friends did venture to the beach to enjoy the 80s. It does remind me though that pool season will be here shortly which is good since there have been bathing suits in the stores since Christmas Clearance.

Do You Know a Great Business That Calls Alpine, CA Home? Please suggest them for our new business profile.     Alpine has been my  home on and off since 1990. Of course in the early years I might not have been especially happy about it. You see my parents moved me to Alpine from Point Loma my junior year of high school (oops, I just gave away my age). I move away for a while, and then when I found out that we were expecting our third child and my oldest was getting close to attending school we knew we couldn't wait any longer to move back.

619.316.7445 Rachell Lara Real Estate Consultant & Alpine Neighborhood Specialist Homes for Sale in Alpine Alpine Foreclosures For Sale Alpine has an influx of foreclosures this month.  We haven't had very many homes on the market in the recent months, in fact we have been hovering at around 40 houses on the market instead of our usual 70+ homes. At the same time we are having this lower amount of homes for sale in Alpine we are also experiencing a higher percentage of foreclosed homes. We currently have 10 foreclosures on the market in Alpine, meaning that 25% of the homes in Alpine are foreclosures, which is a pretty high percentage in the county. Which is interesting because we also have a couple investor flips on the market that were previously foreclosures.

619.316.7445 Rachell Lara San Diego Neighborhood Specialist and Realtor® http://www.wheretobuyinsandiego.com/about/   Big Sky in San Diego's East County One of the things I like best about San Diego is the varied scenery in a relatively short distance. While San Diego is famous for our Big Bay and is usually portrayed with scenes of the bay or the Pacific Ocean. Let's not forget that there is so much more that San Diego County has so much more to offer too, including mountains and a desert too. This particular location is in far away from the Big City to the more tranquil and remote Mount Laguna Foothills near the communities of Alpine, Descanso, and Jamul in San Diego's East County.
