realtor: Now Begins Official Costa Mesa Deck-Ponder Season! - 03/01/17 02:12 PM
Checking the calendar, spring won’t officially kick off until March 20 when the celestial equinox happens. That same Monday will also officially signal the start of Costa Mesa’s annual real estate “hot” selling season. And although Major League Baseball’s first pitch won’t be hurled until two more weeks have passed, March 20 will also coincide with what starts today—which I designate as the kickoff to Costa Mesa’s Deck-Ponder Season (DPS).
Deck-Ponder Season is that period during which Costa Mesa’s homeowners (and even some extremely conscientious renters) take a look outside and begin weighing alternative strategies for dealing with the backyard deck. This … (0 comments)

realtor: Three Worst Ways to Go About Buying a Costa Mesa House - 09/20/16 02:17 AM

 First, a word about these Things to Avoid when you’re in the process of buying a Costa Mesa house: it’s a short list.
The reason it’s so short is because of who you are—since you’re reading this, it means you’re someone who is taking the time to delve into what’s happening with Costa Mesa real estate. That makes it unlikely that you will fall into any of the common-sense pitfalls that populate typical Top 10 Pitfalls lists. Most of them are pretty obvious to anyone who pays attention.
Less obvious are these three. These touch on areas which can be overlooked when time … (0 comments)

realtor: Young Adults Face Rising Need for Co-Signers - 12/04/12 11:57 PM

You are a newlywed couple in your late 20’s with decent jobs, respectable income, and reasonable credit.  You’ve started your search to buy a home in Orange County, but when you walk into the bank to pre-qualify for a loan, to your surprise, you find out… NOT! 
You’re not alone. The Federal Reserve studied the problem, and found that in the three years between 2009-2011, just 9% of youngsters between the ages of 29-34 were able to qualify for a first-time mortgage. It had been 17% only 10 years earlier.
It’s no wonder that many have sought alternative financing … (2 comments)

realtor: Record Refi Rates Tempt Costa Mesa Homeowners - 10/03/12 12:41 AM

Getting a mortgage refinance has seldom looked more attractive than it does this October. Ads for seemingly ridiculously low teaser rates are popping up all over the place -- and even if the closing costs are hefty (many aren’t), the underlying rates make them all but irresistible.
But do you qualify?  Some folks don’t realize that a refi can be just as tough as getting a mortgage in Costa Mesa in the first place. Or tougher. One client has a stunning property, top credit, and a guaranteed income stream that was more than adequate to fund the refi. She … (0 comments)

realtor: Hard Look at Costa Mesa Bank Owned Properties - 09/09/12 11:48 PM

Nationally, the supply of the bank-owned properties for sale has been trending down -- potentially good news for anyone and everyone with an interest inCosta Mesareal estate. Competition from the glut of foreclosed properties has had the effect of driving down home sale prices, so any drop in the number of  Costa Mesa bank owned properties will remove that downward pressure.
If the trend continues, it should also affect even the bank owned properties themselves. A drop in supply will increase competition for the bargains they represent. But this is why alert bargain hunters should keep their pencils sharpened. As … (0 comments)

realtor: Investment Training Camp - 01/16/10 01:20 AM

If you can hear the whispers below the din of panic, you know that the recent financial and housing collapses have actually created some amazing opportunities for smart investors.  Low interest rates and depressed property values have combined in an environment favorable for long-term gains.
It may not be for everyone, but if you're in the right financial position, you have plenty of options.  However, there is a right way and a wrong way to invest, and it's the wrong way that led so many to suffer in the recent housing crisis.

I don't know about you but my experience with the 92626 Post Office, the last 45 days has not been good at all!  Early in December I had 5 bills sent from the office on Adams, none of them ever arrived at the intended destination.  I went to the Post Office to voice my concern ( I really meant to yell, but that is not my nature) the nice supervisor gave me an 800 # to call to lodge my complaint.  After thinking about it I thought this was a waste of time, so I took a deep breath & got … (0 comments)

realtor: Get The Credit You Deserve! - 12/31/09 07:09 AM

Mortgage applications are being reviewed far more thoroughly now than in the past, and your credit score should be 680 or higher to qualify for the best interest rates.  So how do you determine your score, and know you're getting the credit you deserve?
Everyone is allowed one free credit report per year from the three reporting agencies (Experian, Equifax and TransUnion).  Review the reports for accuracy and act quickly to correct any errors or omissions. 
Approximately 35% of your credit score is based on the timeliness of your payments.  Make sure that no late payments older than seven years … (1 comments)

realtor: ALL IN THE FAMILY - 12/04/09 11:08 PM

Many areas of the country are experiencing buyers markets, and current tax laws make this a very attractive time for parents to help their children become homeowners.  Prices and interest rates may never be lower than they are now, so strongly consider this potential investment in your children's future.
As parents, you can provide a significant down payment, free of taxation.  Individuals may gift up to $13,000 per year, so two parents making gifts to their child and spouse can give a total of $52,000 in one year without paying gift tax!
Above and beyond the outright gift, you may … (1 comments)

realtor: DEVILS IN THE DETAILS - 11/27/09 05:00 PM

When you receive an Offer To Purchase, you are likely to focus on the price.  You might be ecstatic over a full price offer, but you should be aware how "contingencies" could affect the likelihood of success.
Almost every offer has a mortgage contingency, stating that the buyer will secure financing at a certain rate and for a certain term.  Make sure these factors are realistic.  A buyer seeking a 30-year loan at 4% with no points may be hedging their bets if your agent advises that these loans are typically written at 7% with 1.5 points.  Unrealistic terms can … (3 comments)

realtor: PROTECT YOUR HOME AND YOUR WALLET - 11/16/09 04:51 AM

If you own or plan to purchase a home, then you know that insurance is not just a luxury, it's a requirement.  While you should not skimp on certain coverage items, there are some steps you can take to reduce your overall premium.
 If you have a security system installed (and operating!), you might lower your premium by 5% or more.  You'll just need to provide your insurer with a copy of your contract or latest statement.  Also, while newer homes have smoke alarms already installed, hooking them up in an older home might also reduce your premium by as … (0 comments)
