What's in it for me - The Realtor?Isn't that what it is really all about? Who cares how much experience you have or how many projects you completed, it is all about the next one, the one you are doing right now. How about closing your next 203k loan closed in short order... less than 30 days? Would that be of interest to you?If you do it by the book rather than by what you may have been told you should be able to do just that. 1. Consultant is the first person on the job. [many lenders want a bid first thinking their clock doesn't start till they get that in hand. This can quite often put a wrench in your project as the contractor doesn't always know what HUD requires such as health and safety issues, insultation requirements, caulking requirements, electrical requirements, and more.]2....

203k - Experience CountsLike anything else experience counts. I was talking with someone the other day from Sacramento when I had to think back to when we started doing FHA 203k consulting. It all started in 1994 when HUD created 203k consultants. We did about 20-30 that first year just in the Sacramento juristiction. Then year after year we did more than a hundred each year in that area and sometimes  as many as 250-300 per year just in the Sacramento area.  That is 28 years serving this community.One of the most interesting onces we did ever was a sale for about $888,000 as I recall. How does this become a 203k you may ask? The maximum loan amount for FHA in Sacramento County was about $450,000 at that time.  What we find out from time to time is that you need to think "out of the box...

Yesterday was a really delicious day! The temperature in beautiful Capitola along the California Coast boasted a perfect 75 degrees. The thought of warm sand on bare feet inspired not only myself, but my kid Jill, grandkid Macie and her friend Erin, to make the 150 mile journey to this special spot. The Capitola beach cottages always provide colorful accent.   Here's a little video I shot. It provides A broader view: https://youtu.be/D-5Nm8zkp_E

What’s the Value of My Del Mar Home? Del Mar Home Sales for April 2022 Del Mar is a small coastal town in North San Diego County, and one of the more expensive communities along the beach. The most expensive property sold publicly in the MLS in San Diego County was in Del Mar (around $48,000,000 in 2007), which sold again, for $43M, in April 2020. Up to date information on Del Mar housing market conditions is important so buyers and sellers can make informed decisions about Del Mar homes for sale. These statistics were obtained from the MLS (the data are believed accurate at the time this report was compiled, but are not guaranteed, and do not include private/non-MLS sales).  READ MORE: Del Mar – Affluent Seaside Town (A Community Profile) 15 homes sold in Del Mar in April, down 25% fro...

Colorful Pots at Armstrong Garden Center Armstrong Garden Center is a popular nursery and landscape vendor in Carlsbad near the Carlsbad Premium Outlets Mall. It's also conveniently located by the Carlsbad Flower Fields off Palomar AIrport Road and the 5. We've spent plenty of money there and at the store in Encinitas over the years. We stopped by today for some flowers for the pots on our patio and the place was quite busy. In addition to shoppers, the Flower Fields were open for their final day and plenty of people were likely biding their time while they waited to enter the Fields. I thought these blue pots (my favorite color) were quite striking and would certainly brighten up anyone's yard, garden or patio, with flowers or without.Or perhaps these?

​​Dear Clients, Family & Friends,We are in the midst of run-away inflation.  The Fed is determined to slow it down by steadily increasing interest rates.  Higher rates will lower the amount of a mortgage loan a buyer will be able to borrow.  This may not lower demand but increase bidding wars on lower priced homes.  My experience from the past shows that it will take several months or even a year for sellers to begin to lower their list price significantly.  This is a time that a homeowner thinking of selling needs a seasoned, professional Realtor more than ever.  A homeowner needs to have a Realtor that has a feel for the pulse of the new competitive real estate marketContact us to learn the current value and suggest list price for your houseBuying a house in the post-pandemic era can ...
