The Seasons Are ChangingIt’s fall. School started again. My kids began their junior year in high school. Though they didn’t say anything about it and would certainly never admit it, I think they were glad at the change in their daily schedules that 6 hours of school brings. After all, school also brings their friends together, sports, and social events.
And parents’ schedules often change to accommodate school. You have to drive kids to school, to sports, and to the events. You have to make time to attend some of the school functions. You … (0 comments)

Ventura County single-family home and condominium sales were up 2.2 percent from a revised 36,287 in April 2016. On a year-ago basis, sales were down 4.7 percent from 38,921 in May 2015.
“Sales continue to be lackluster state-wide,” said Madeline Schnapp, Director of Economic Research for PropertyRadar. “Without an increase in affordable inventory, high prices continue to depress sales. Unfortunately, our 2016 forecast of anemic sales in the face of high prices and low inventory is shaping up to be right … (1 comments)

“California’s real estate market went into early hibernation starting in October 2015,” said Madeline Schnapp, Director of Economic Research for PropertyRadar. “On a year-over-year basis, sales have been remarkably flat. That’s good news because the California real estate market continues to shrug off broader national and global financial turmoil.The bad news is that resilience has translated into flat markets for the foreseeable future.”

Woke up at about 4:00 am to the smell of very nasty smoke, actually my wife woke up and had to nudge me a few times before the neuron's started to fire.
Smelled like burning plastic. The smoke detectors were not going off. They only seem to go off when there is no smoke. Walked around the upstairs and could not find anything. Then walked downstairs and saw a think layer of smoke hovering on the kitchen ceiling. 
It appears our built in microwave/convection oven was melting from the inside!
I quickly unplugged it, opened all the windows and turned on the … (4 comments)

Weekly Mortgage Rate Update Mortgage rates are affected by many different market forces. Often it is economic data and its impact on the outlook for inflation. This week, the biggest influence on mortgage rates came from the drop in the price of oil and its effects on the stock market. Stocks declined, and mortgage rates ended the week a little lower.

Ripping straight from the pages of the "those who failed to learn from history are doomed... period" book of centrally-planned desperation to maintain American Dream 'wealth' by unsustainably levitating home prices, the government's bankruptcy mortgage guarantors have just announced "HomeReady Mortgages." These so-called 'enhanced affordable lending products - provided by the US taxpayer - enable 97%-plus Loan-to-Value loans to borrowers based not on their income (which is too low) but on "non-borrowers" like extended family or children! "Whatever it takes" to maintain the illusion of normalcy and hand out more money just reached peak Einsteinian … (0 comments)

  I recently had yet another eye-opening experience that reminded me how our profession is often viewed by the general public. It was a seemingly normal night of staring off into space while my children were at the third dance class of the week. I usually take that hour to relax, check out, and have some Eric time at the local coffee shop. But on this particular night I stuck around the studio. I’m not one to mingle with the über-competitive dance parents, so I quietly sat by myself on … (3 comments)

 The housing recovery without mortgage originations is coming to its inevitable conclusion. The Fed, Wall Street bankers and the US Treasury have been able to increase national home prices by 30%, with 50% to 100% in some bubble markets, using 0% interest rates, a massive buy and rent scheme, withholding foreclosures from the market, encouraging foreign cash buying, and allowing flippers back into the market. In a real free market would home prices go up by 30% while mortgage originations remained flat for … (0 comments)

 And if Congress calls a tax a “fee,” it’s still a tax.
 Congress is trying to tax homebuyers to pay for the new transportation bill by  creating a new mortgage tax and disguising it as a “fee.” But it’s a tax, pure  and simple.
 The Senate recently passed a long-term transportation funding bill, and  included a new tax on mortgages to pay for it, calling it a “fee.”  This "fee" for … (2 comments)
