As a certified HOT BUYS specialist with First Team Real Estate, I am pleased to announce the next best system for buying a home in Southern California. The statistics are saying the only about 10% of the current inventory of homes is actually going to sell. First Team has put together a sophisticated system to analyze the current properties for sale. First Team agents search daily for new properties that come on the market. They then based on price, quality, and seller motivation score the properties to determine if they qualify to be given the exclusive designation of HOT BUYS. This program is creating such a stir that properties that are given the HOT BUYS designation are selling faster than anything else on the market, even in a little as 10 days. There is a lot of talk about how bad...

In the last year over 100 mortgage lenders have gone out of business due to the "mortgage meltdown" as most of you might now it is getting much more difficult to qualify for mortgages in Costa Mesa. The reason it is difficult to qualify for your Costa Mesa mortgage is because guidelines have changed drastically. Even reverse mortgages in Costa Mesa are getting harder to qualify for, leaving many looking for a honest mortgage company in Costa Mesa.Since many mortgage brokers in Costa Mesa are going out of business, and others are not able to get you qualified, you need to call a reputable company to help you with your home mortgage in Costa Mesa. We here at America One Mortgage Group are a national company headquartered out of Southern California. We have offices in many states and fund ...

 I am a lifetime resident of eastside Costa Mesa. I grew up here going to St. Joachim and after going to Mater Dei I ended up graduating from Newport Harbor. All three of my children will be going to Newport-Mesa schools in September with one  just starting Woodland, one starting at Ensign and my oldest will be a sophomore at Harbor. I am releasing a newsletter where I will share  money-making information about real estate and consumer assistance on a monthly basis, sign up on my website www.centralochomes.com. The housing market in my opinion is still going strong. It is still a buyer's market with 849 Single Family Residences (SFR) with a median listing price of $849,900 currently active (available) as of 7/31/2007. There were also 68 condos showing active as of the same date with a m...

Lately there has been a lot of concern about properties being on the market for a longer period of time. Clients afraid of losing large amounts of home equity have been inquiring about what their homes would appraise for in today's market. This is why I have begun compiling data for my clients in various neighborhoods in Orange County.I have created a report for Mesa Verde residents to see the trends in the neighborhood, as well as to view comparable listings and recent sales. To request this report, you can visit the following site:MesaVerdeHomeValues.comMy staff will get your customized report to you within 24 hours.Additionally, if you need a referral to a great REALTOR® who can help you find a Mesa Verde home or elsewhere, please contact me! I'd be happy to refer you to a trusted ag...

"Mamas, Grab your babies!"This year the Orange County Fair is serving up a special Old West Cattle Drive on Friday, July 27, when they will drive 300 Corriente Steer (big horns and all!) through the streets of Costa Mesa. The cattle drive starts at 10:30 a.m. at Fairview Park and will go south on Placentia, then east on Victoria, north on Harbor and east on Fair Drive before entering the fairgrounds at Gate 2 at Vanguard Way.  They should reach the fairgrounds by noon....just one question: Who's on the "afterwards clean street crew?"
