Current mortgage rates are improving.  The economic overreaction to the devastating earthquake and Tsunami that hit Japan is subsiding causing the stock market to improve which causes mortgage rates to increase.  The Fed auctioning Treasury notes at 1PM EST caused buyers on mortgage backed securities to drive mortgage rates lower this afternoon. However look for mortgage rates to rise this week as the stock market rebounds. Mortgage rates are still at historic lows and are favorable for first time home buyers and seasoned home buyers looking to buy real estate as a home and / or investment.  San Diego mortgages - San Diego mortgage broker.

Indeed FRAUD is an ugly word and most people would steer clear from it if they know what to look for. Mortgage and real estate fraud schemes are clever and many unsuspecting people looking for help get roped in. Elderly looking to get cash flow from a reverse mortgage, short sale fraud,  people getting money from others for down payment and not disclosing it to the lender or people buying homes for unqualified borrowers.  Some of these schemes to an average everyday citizen may seem harmless but they aren't.   Arm yourself,your  family, friends and your clients with the facts.  Here is a guide from Fannie Mae about popular fraud schemes, red flags for detecting fraud schemes and what to do.  Remember if it sounds too good to be true it probably is.

For 10 years I lived in Carmel Valley..almost to the Carmel Valley Village. I loved the relaxing drive home. The beauty is breath-taking. Some people would complain that they didn't want to live so far..well it's not that far and so worth it. The sun is always shining and air really does smell good. As a kid I spent almost every summer in the "valley" My aunt lived there and had a swimming pool. Her house was the most popular. Loved to swim and play everyday. Although I now live at Las Palmas Ranch..I have very fond memories of Carmel Valley. I still drive Carmel Valley Road to get home and it is still as beautiful as ever. It really hasn't changed. If you are thinking of moving here to the Monterey Peninsula, give me a call. I will show you around.

The answer is Yes!!!!   Looking at statistics can be tricky. We cannot always take them at face value, especially when looking at median home prices. The big numbers don’t always show you the entire picture. Every area is different. Yes, the overall market has gone down but there are sub areas (neighborhoods) that are still forging forward.   Monterey Counties Median Sales Price for June 2008 County/City/Area # Sold June 2008 June 2007 % Chg Yr-to-Yr Monterey County 282 $342,500 $600,500 -42.96% CARMEL 20 $944,750 $1,001,250 -5.64% CARMEL VALLEY 7 $1,021,000 $799,000 27.78% CASTROVILLE 4 $303,000 n/a n/a GONZALES 7 $268,000 $486,000 -44.86% GREENFIELD 18 $254,000 $475,000 -46.53% KING CITY 2 $261,500 $429,750 -39.15% MARINA 9 $425,000 $576,500 -26.28% MONTEREY 20 $567,000 $785,000 -27.7...

  If you want sun then Carmel Valley is the place for you. The coastal fog seems to burn off much faster with temperatures usually much warmer than other areas on the Peninsula. Carmel Valley has more to offer than just the sun, the lots are generally larger and you have more privacy. The village is much more laid back and people seem to be more casual than in town. There are still plenty of great restaurants, not to mention that Carmel Valley offers many local wineries, and unique shops.
