krista lombardi: No More Gauging Home Equity Lines - 09/27/11 04:59 AM
 
 

In ANOTHER shocking story about the big banks in the U.S., at least 1 Million homeowners have had their home equity line cut.
What does this mean?
Imagine if you had taken out a home equity line of credit to remodel your house.  You’ve already taken thousands and thousands of dollars to pay contractors and then comes the letter from the bank.
The bank shuts down your credit line, the bank does not physically appraise the property but it did do an online evaluation and the property value has dropped.  If you’d like an appraisal, you can feel … (5 comments)

krista lombardi: Warren Buffett Pumps Blood into Bank of America - 09/26/11 04:59 AM

 
Bank of  of America Corp, currently the largest bank in the U.S. by assets, announced  that it would receive a $5 billion investment from Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway. Which had a big impact on BofA’s shares.
I have to say, my first thought was, “Hey Warren, give me a call!”  My second was irritation with Bank of America.  Ultimately, someone needs to get these banks on track, better Warren than me right now.
 
Warren Buffett has long been considered a great investment resource for major companies. While he has been reliable in this sense, experts say he’s not looking … (1 comments)

krista lombardi: Foreclosure Reform? - 09/25/11 04:35 AM

 
 
It’s year 5 of a housing crisis in which more than 3 million Americans have lost their homes to foreclosure, with more still at risk.
It’s a strange time to have glimmers of optimism in this crisis.
Over the next few weeks, initiatives are coming out that are aimed at
 
reforming the foreclosure process, holding mortgage lenders and services accountable for their past abuses, and creating more effective mortgage workouts.
The complexity of the foreclosure crisis stems from the process of bundling hundreds of thousands of mortgage loans into securities and selling them to investors.
Typically, banks … (2 comments)

krista lombardi: Fun Thought Friday - 09/23/11 06:45 AM
 

 
Every day we are faced with a multitude of choices. In my opinion, one of the greatest freedoms human beings enjoy is the freedom to choose our thoughts. We can choose to focus upon and think about what's right in our world, or we can choose to focus on what's not. One of the great inspirational authors, Max Lucado<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Lucado>  "On The Anvil." The excerpt below is from his book. Today I will make a difference. I will begin by controlling my thoughts. A person is the product of his thoughts. I want to be happy and hopeful. Therefore, I will have … (8 comments)

krista lombardi: Feds Warn Against Tax Scammers - 09/21/11 05:05 AM
 

 
The Internal Revenue Service is warning Californians about a ring of scammers who take advantage of people by posing as tax preparers.
The San Jose Mercury News says the scammers target mainly Asian groups at community centers and churches. They charge up to $200 and offer to help their victims get tax credits through a program that doesn’t exist.
IRS spokesman Jesse Walter says the agency has received hundreds of reports of the scam in recent weeks from San Jose, Oakland, Sacramento, Fresno and other cities.
No arrests have been made yet.

krista lombardi: When Will Home Prices Turn Around in San Diego? - 09/20/11 08:03 AM
 

Nationwide, the U.S. housing market remains deep in the doldrums and economists expect prices to fall another 5% to 10% in many places.
Email us questions about home prices in your area at sandiegorealestatecafe@gmail.com
 
In a few of the hardest-hit areas, such as Detroit, homes have become so cheap that it no longer makes sense to rent.
In other places, like Los Angeles, price drops haven’t stopped, but they’ve slowed, and homes are selling faster. Plus, even if your area is still hurting, your neighborhood might be on its way back.
Here’s what the economists are saying, when … (0 comments)

We all know that kids and dogs can be good friends, however, dog bites are more frequently suffered by children than by adults. Lack of understanding of animals is a basic reason for dog bites. Over-excited dogs are more likely to bite. Children should not play ball, ride a bicycle or run close to an excited or nervous animal. Here are some tips on how to avoid dog bites:
Don’t give a dog to a child under six years of age and avoid the combination of young children and young dogs, which are more prone to bite.

krista lombardi: My 10 Tips For Eating Healthy - 07/25/11 06:05 AM
 
 
 
1. Cooking at Home- With the rising cost of food this is one of the most important things you can do to save a few $ AND eat healthy.
2. Do your food shopping on weekends. If you have lots of fresh food available to you during the week you will be less tempted to go out and spend money at restaurants and fast food places.
3. Shop at your local Farmers Market-    I still enjoy shopping at Whole Foods and Trader Joes. However, buying your produce is more cost effective at the Farmers Market.
4. Focus on Salads- All kinds … (4 comments)
