Hacienda Carmel is a wonderful condominium community for adults over the age of 55. Hacienda Carmel is located just minutes to the beach, shopping and close to golf courses including Rancho Canada, Quail Lodge and Camel Valley Ranch. Amenities include pool, clubhouse, library, restaurant, putting green and walking trails. Hacienda Carmel offers many clubs as well. The homeowner association dues include not just the typical outdoor fixes but also cover your utilities, replacement of your furnace and water heater. One of the many benefits is the sun. In the summer when it is foggy in town the sun seems to beam bright here making the residence of this community happy to sit out by the pool!

There's a great article that just came out in the Feb. 25th edition of Time in conjunction with CNN.  It's something to send to your buyer clients who may have been or continue to be on the sidelines interms of moving forward with purchasing a home.  Essentially it outlines that any price reduction = equity, that one might gain by waiting might be offset by rising financing costs and they give a nice example to illustrate this.  It's up to us to get this market moving!  We only have the market we're in at any given time and I would encourage you to think of today's market as being a "mindset."  You are your stiffest competition.If anyone would like a copy of the article, please don't hesitate to ask and I'll gladly email it to you for use with your clients.Happy House Sales!Frank
