IT TAKES MONEY TO SAVE MONEY! Okay, you've found the home of your dreams. You've determined how much you can afford because you've already been pre-approved by your lender, and your offer has been accepted. But wait. If you're financing the purchase, like almost everyone does, you'll actually be paying more than the final sale price of the home. Many buyers don't stop to think about how much they'll really be paying for their home by the time they've reached the final payment. It's worth considering, and it makes it evident that you should shop around and get the best (0 comments)

Country Club A Local Gem - 06/04/08 11:28 PM
As Published in the Daily Pilot: Friday, May 30, 2008 Every community has hidden gems. Whether it's a locals-only restaurant, a small park or community event, they are what make every community special.Usually they are small and out-of-the-way places. In this case, the hidden gem may be out-of-the-way, but at more than 100 acres it is not small. What I am talking about is the Mesa Verde Country Club, which turns 50 this January.Many of the non-golfers in the community confuse it with Costa Mesa Country Club, which is off of Mesa Verde East but just south of Adams Avenue.
