Or What About December 28th, 29th, 30th or 31st? You can celebrate the New Years Eve on any of these days in New Years Eve New York Style at Viejas Casino.    Now since I have not yet attended New Year's Eve in New York, I have to admit that I can't attest to the authenticity of this claim, although I am not sure that it is a bad thing. While I think that spending New Years in New York is a great thing for your bucket list, it might not be the "best" way to spend the breaking in of the new year.    I am however assuming that their will be less drunk, pushy crowds at Viejas then in New York. I am also assuming that even though the ...

Great day yesterday for mortgage rates with a whopping 36 basis point improvement. What does this mean? Consider a $300,000 mortgage with an option to pay 1 point ($3000) at the beginning of the day. With this 36 basis point improvement, that same interest rate may have dropped $1000 in cost by the end of the day with many Lenders across the country.

Alpine Polling Locations, since I have been asked several times in the last 24 hours "Where do I vote in Alpine?" I thought that I should post about Alpine's Voting Locations in case others of you are in the same boat. I remember many years ago while I was in college working at the San Diego County Registrar's Office answering the polling location question as well. Most locations stay the same but some may have changed since the last election year. To see where your polling location is, in case you aren't able to locate your sample ballot visit San Diego County Polling Locations.  If you aren't able to access the San Diego County Site the list below will get you started in the right direction or you can call (858) 565-5800 Remember Polls open at 7:00 a.m. and close at 8:00 p.m.  Here a...

How do we here in our small town of Alpine, California compare to these national statistics? Has your house increased in value $2,700/month since November 2011 like the national average? Our local statistics look a little different. Based on the Media Home Values Statistics we are actually in about the same place that we were in November 2011. But I don't think that quite tells the story either.  Since we have been floundering in lower home values and a bad economy it is generally our lower priced homes that have been selling so our larger priced homes haven't been selling and therefore haven't been increasing in value leaving our median home prices on the flatter side. Also because of our small town and great variation in price range due to the variance of our properties in general ou...

There was a big debate between my co-workers and myself the other day, brought on by the new McDonalds. I was amazed about how everybody complained about it coming, but now it always has a never ending drive-thru line and people are always putting status posts about going there. My co-workers don't live in Alpine but some do have ties and one was amazed that we would be picky about fast food places after all "Alpine did have a Long John Silver and KFC once." This was the heated debate, was there a combo of a Long John Silver and Kentucky Fried Chicken in the same location that Carl's Junior now inhabits? I was a reluctant Alpine resident in 1991 when my parents moved us here from Point Loma and during the later college years I moved away only to come back in 2005 with my own family, so...
