San Diego " Housing Hot Spots" North San Diego County Coastal Communities and a few other hot spots in San Diego are enjoying both increases in home prices and in some areas an increase in sales as well. One of these communities is Carmel Valley. When State Highway 56 was developed about 8 years ago giving the inland areas east of Interstate 15 easy access to the coastal areas, the large stretch of land that was previously mostly used for farming was now intersected by the highway and seemed ripe for development. Carmel Valley was one of the largest underdeveloped areas of the county stuck in between  developed coastal areas and the already developed inland areas. With vistas and canyons of views to the ocean in one direction and the mountainous areas of East county in the other, it see...

I was showing a young family a beautiful home in Rancho Ponderosa, Carlsbad.  They were asking about good events that are in the neighborhood and I told them about Snores and S'more in Carlsbad.  They loved the idea so I thought it might be worth a blog!  Many of our children will be heading back to school on Monday morning, so what a great way to end the summer!  SNORES AND S'MORES Camp in the comfort of your city's own park. Bring a tent and a sleeping bag and the rest is taken care of. The night includes games, crafts, activities, dinner, popcorn, s'mores and an outdoor movie on the big screen. Wake up to a beautiful sunrise, coffee, a continental breakfast and a hike on one of the many scenic trails on Carlsbad. Contact email specialevents@carlsbadca.gov Phone 760-602-7519     Event...

As an  active full time San Diego, CA Real Estate Agent, I want to point out how a buy now or later decision effects some but not all.  Many people are moving in to the area, marrying/divorcing/expanding their family, etc and they may need to buy now regardless of what may be happening in the market.  For those that are contemplating but don't have a specific requirement, it's a question of trying to time the market similar to the stock market.  The problem with that is, the general public info lags behind on both up and down swings.  For example, previous market reports I posted, 6 weeks ago have changed.  It was slower than average as was April but Jun & early July have picked up steam again in the San Diego.  Builders have burned off some of the new home inventory that was building ...

Current mortgage rate trends improved slightly today.  The blue line going up means mortgage rates are dropping and the blue line heading down means mortgage rates are increasing. Reason:  Unemployment is at 9.1% and only 54,000 new jobs were added.  Expect to see mortgage rates remain volatile.  If you have more than 1 week to close I suggest you float as rates may improve.  Wall Street chooses to ignore the obvious fact that home prices in some of the nation's worst markets continue to fall, unemployment is still high and most business owners think our politicians are doing a poor job so they are tightening up and don't want to hire.  Wall Street investors with an appetite for high returns are in denial and think these issues are only temporary. All that being said, current mortgage r...

How we calculate mortgage insurance (MI) on FHA loans to figure out a monthly MI payment.    What exactly is PMI or MI?  You can view PMI a simple explanation for more clarification.   What you will need: A standard calculator A piece of paper/pen A little patience An understanding of MI factor  An understanding of UFMIP Here is the formula -  Loan amount multiplied by to monthly MI factor divided by 12 equals your monthly MI payment. MI factor is the number used to calculate the sum.  FHA rules change but as of now these are the guidelines. If you have a down payment less than 5% then your monthly MI factor is 1.15   If you have 5% or greater down payment your monthly MI factor is 1.10 UFMIP is a one time payment to FHA. It stands for Up Front Mortgage Insurance Premium.  Easy way to t...

Current mortgage rate trends remained flat today.  With all of the news regarding Osama Bin Laden the markets were mixed.  Initially there was jubilation about destroying Al Qaeda followed by concerns of retaliation.  All in all not much happened in the way of mortgage rates. With the economy showing signs of improving, now is a great time to take advantage of low mortgage rates and low housing prices.  It won't be long when 6% or 7% is average and houses cost 15% more than they do now.  Many will kick themselves for not taking advantage right now.

With rates at historic lows all seems well in the mortgage world - However at some point these rates will go up.  What will you do with your home purchase or sale when this happens?  If you don't already have Plan B, here are some options: Temporary buy down A temporary buydown or 2/1 buydown is when a fee is payed to a lender in exchange for a lower initial rate.  This can be done with a 30 year fixed rate mortgage.  Often times in a buyers market an agent will request that the seller help cover closing costs for the buyer.  The temporary buydown can also be included (make sure seller contibutions do not exceed lender guidelines).  The lower rate is temporary. Shorter fixed rate terms:  It is a statistical fact that homeowners refinance their mortgages for various reasons about every ...

Carmel Valley Homes for Sale - Homes for Sale in Carmel Valley Being a recent transplant from Arizona, and knowing I wanted to live in North San Diego County, Carmel Valley was right up there at the top of my list for places to live.  For starters, the location is superb.  Carmel Valley lies right at the intersections of the I-5 and Route 56 freeways.  The 56 runs east all the way to the I-15, and the I-5 runs north and south, with downtown San Diego being about 15 miles south and Orange County to the north. Here is a quick link to view all Carmel Valley Homes for Sale.   It is not just the location I liked.  A quick drive through Carmel Valley presents lots of other great amenities.  For example, there are many great schools, new neighborhoods, community parks, shopping, dining and so ...
