Loveland Reservoir, Alpine, CA Why go there? Hiking & Fishing Where is it? Less than 10 minutes from the 8 freeway when taking the Tavern Rd  exit in Alpine. Make a right on to Tavern Road and keep going until you see the sign on the right side of the road. From most places in central San Diego allow for 45 minutes drive time. Hiking Trail Difficulty: According to the Boy Scout (older than Cub Scouts, 10+ years) the trail was easy, but the parents, especially those with baby hikers strapped on their backs thought that parts of the hike were very challenging. Fishing: I, myself do not fish and we left before the others got situated for fishing, but I am pretty sure it is a good fishing spot since we always see tons of cars in the parking lot. And one time someone took pity on my kids an...

We can stuff our pipeline full of leads by following the tips below: Plant Seeds Talk to people.  People need us.  We need them.  They don’t like to be sow but they do like to know what we have that they might need. Don’t pre-judge people because you’ll never know when somebody’s become a potential client for you or a referral and just be kind and courteous to everybody. Don’t be picky because you’ll just never know, like I said, don’t pre-judge, just plant seeds.  You can’t say, this is a person that will never ever buy a house so I’m not going to talk to him about my business. Never rule anybody out.  Never give up on anyone when we go out there, and talk to buyers and sellers. Yes, we do have to screen them out especially buyers.  Everybody wants to buy a house but very few people ar...

Alpine Short Sales, Currently the lowest prices in town. Alpine Short Sale Homes as low as $169,900 and Alpine Short Sale Condos as Low as $89,000  "Short Sales"are where the homeowner still owns the house, but is selling it for less than they owe the bank for their mortgage, so the seller needs the mortgage holder's approval before selling the home. Therefore once the owner accepts your offer, you then need to wait while the bank negotiates with both parties, the current owner and you. As a result the buyer is negotiating twice instead of just once and therefore prolonging the time it takes to buy the house. Once the bank gives the approval traditional escrow times apply of 30-45 days. As a reward for your time and patience short sales usually sale less than comprable traditional sal...

Alpine is a small town community great for raising kids or just taking things slow while still being close to a metropolitan city of San Diego. Alpine has something for everyone including Kiwanis, Optimist, Women's Club, Mom's Club, artist associations and writer's groups and 3 annual parades which includes Fourth of July at Crown Hills, Viejas' Days and the Parade of Lights down Alpine Boulevard.     Wright's Field, donated by Alpine's benefactor, is a great open space in the center of town providing panoramic views and endless trails for hiking, horseback riding, geocaching or just enjoying nature. Big Sky, because of the altitude San Diego's marine layer doesn't often make it out here giving Alpine more than it's fair share of beautiful sunny days with clear blue skys.   Great Schoo...

What is a Depletion of Assets Mortgage? An Asset Depletion Mortgage allows the borrower to qualify by deriving an income from assets they currently hold. This program is not meant for a struggling self employed home buyer with no assets and no income on their tax returns. Two years tax returns are still required, and most likely significant assets will be required. But for a solid borrower with $1,000,000 in the bank, this will be a big boost. Eligible Assets for Asset Depletion QualifyingAssets that can be used for qualifying include cash equivalents, such as CD's, and funds in checking and savings accounts. Also, trust accounts and investment portfolio's. Retirement accounts like IRA's and 401k's can be used, but only if the borrower is 62 years of age or older. Example of Asset Deple...
