weichman: Some Expenses Aren’t Really Avoided by Costa Mesa Renters - 07/17/19 09:36 AM
     
     That “things break down” is a truism as old as mankind—possibly preceding the invention of language itself. You can picture a furious caveman staring at the shattered remains of the wheel he’d just invented—after the first time it broke. Sooner or later, “things fall apart.”
     When area residents mull over their personal living arrangement decisions, one of the logical financial arguments for renting Costa Mesa homes rather than buying is the added cost of maintenance. Costa Mesa renters reason that they don’t have to worry about saving up for a rainy day (as when the garbage … (1 comments)

weichman: Surprise Credit Score Rise Affects Lucky Costa Mesa Homebuyers - 05/21/18 11:45 AM
 
It isn’t exactly Christmas-in-May, but for some Costa Mesa consumers, a valuable present they weren’t expecting will show up this month. The surprise gift will arrive in the form of a boost to their all-important credit score. The newly minted credit scores could be improved by as much as 30 points—enough of a jump that some Costa Mesa recipients could find themselves newly eligible for home loans with lower rates. That will happen if the increase promotes them from one credit score “band” to the next. The windfall comes as a result of a revision in the way the three major … (0 comments)

weichman: In Multiple Offer Scenarios, Last Step First Wins the Day - 05/15/18 01:30 PM
Particularly when the supply of homes for sale falls well below demand, house hunting can take more determination than usual. Since U.S. residential real estate markets have been long mired in exactly that lean-inventory situation—the accompanying publicity could discourage folks who’d otherwise already be in the hunt for Costa Mesa homes for sale.
While it can take some stick-to-it-ness to locate the ideal Costa Mesa home that’s for sale at a price that fits your budget—the truly frustrating thing would be for your offer to be passed over in favor of a competitor’s. If the other party swoops in with an over-the-top … (0 comments)

weichman: Easy Communication with Your Costa Mesa Agent—It’s Vital! - 05/08/18 12:15 PM
One of the most important yet seldom discussed factors that should rate near the top of your list of requirements for a Costa Mesa agent is how comfortable you feel in conversation with him or her. What might sound like New Age feel-goodery is actually a crucial ingredient in the buying and selling of Costa Mesa homes.
Selecting a real estate agent is more than a personnel decision—it also becomes a pivotal team-building exercise.
 Professional qualifications necessarily come first. In addition to being licensed to carry out the duties and obligations required by the California authorities, the agent you tap should be able … (0 comments)

weichman: Last Month’s Jaw-Dropper & Huntington Beach Listing Strategy - 04/02/18 09:25 AM
When it’s time to put your Huntington Beach house up for sale, one of the most important built-in
marketing tools at your disposal is the write-up at the top of its Huntington Beach listing. Ad people call short
descriptive essays like this “blurbs.” In Huntington Beach listings, its importance is second only to the curb-
appeal of the photo that appears above it.
When the blurb is thoughtfully crafted, it can shape prospects’ expectations by way of highlighting
the best features while softening the importance of less desirable details. A huge backyard could be
emphasized as “park-like”—while a tiny patio could be “cozy” or even “intimate.”
That’s why, … (0 comments)

weichman: Reports Say Lenders are Relaxing Home Loan Requirements - 03/26/18 09:13 AM
Huntington Beach readers who perused The Washington Post’s “Real Estate” section recently found a most encouraging piece of information—particularly if they were among many the younger and first-time home seekers who worry about qualifying for a home loan. And by the article’s finale, there was even one conclusion that sober-minded observers might decide had exceeded simple optimism…
The headline article— Many lenders are loosening requirements for prospective home buyers—provided ample evidence of widespread easing of mortgage qualification criteria. Apparently, there is a common acknowledgment that many of the lending guidelines that followed the housing crisis were overly restrictive.
Among the tweaks … (1 comments)

weichman: “Last Call” to Buy Your Huntington Beach Home? - 03/12/18 10:25 AM
The question posed in last week’s Realtor.com article was certainly scary enough: “Is It Last Call for Low Mortgage Rates?” If you have been putting off getting ready to buy your next Huntington Beach home, it could well have been a potent call to action. For the normally staid Realtor, it was an unusually pointed dispatch.
The article’s opening line, “All good things come to an end…” is what many Huntington Beach home loan rate watchers have known to be true enough—yet for years now, when it comes to the financial benefits that accompany low mortgage interest rates, the prospects for losing … (0 comments)

weichman: National Home Prices Jump 37% Since 2014 - 03/05/18 10:30 AM
When Fountain Valley homeowners sit down to plot out their household’s long-range financial plan, the value they ascribe to their Fountain Valley home usually deserves a leading role. As research firm Pulsenomics puts it, “changes in single-family home values can have profound impacts on consumer balance sheets.” Yet it’s often the case that homeowners assume that their home’s value is its apparent equity—the home price they paid less their mortgage’s remaining principal.
Fountain Valley homeowners will be pleased to find that using that measure is almost certain to result in a substantial underestimate. Since the historical norm is for residential home prices to rise, if you … (2 comments)

weichman: 2 Obscure Factors Influence Huntington Beach Mortgage Loan Decisions - 03/05/18 10:02 AM
Whether you are about to embark on your first Huntington Beach home search or your umpteenth, unless you’ve managed to save enough to make you a cash buyer, soon you’ll need to secure a mortgage loan from a bank or other lending institution.
To understand what lies behind any home loan decision, just do what any good business negotiator does: put yourself in the other guy’s shoes. Getting a yes (and a low interest rate) from Huntington Beach’s lenders starts with demonstrating a history of responsible debt handling. That’s been made easy by the major credit information gathering agencies, who’ve been … (0 comments)

weichman: Costa Mesa Homes for Sale Aim to Thwart a ‘Double Squeeze’ - 02/26/18 03:54 PM
 
There hasn’t been a call for “All Hands On Deck!”—but if we start seeing an influx of Costa Mesa homes for sale ahead of this spring’s peak selling season, it’s not hard to guess why. There may not have been any conspicuous heads-up for homeowners, but thoughtful deductions based on the news might prompt just such an effect.
At point is the possibility of a coming “double squeeze” for homeowners on the move. If it happens, there could be a decrease in the total number of Costa Mesa homes for sale because of what sellers face after they have given up their … (0 comments)

weichman: The L3 Real Estate- founded on Heritage & Hustle - 07/13/17 06:20 PM

We’re built on the philosophy of Heritage & Hustle. 
Historically, there are few words more synonymous with real estate than “LOCATION”. It has always been at the forefront of what is considered top priority when investing in a property. The philosophy is that the better location it has, the more premium it will command. For the most part this is true, but is location unequivocally defined by traditional ideology? It is obvious that any home with an ocean, city lights, or golf course view will always be in high demand. However, the significance of the word location can mean so many other … (0 comments)
