san diego short sales: Making Home Affordable - 07/29/09 02:52 PM
Making Home Affordable 
San Diego Real Estate Blog   
I think "Making Home Affordable" the title and the name of the web site have it all wrong, it's supposed to be "Buy a Home You Can Afford" but most things right now in the world are either upside down or just plain wrong.               
I checked out the Obama led web site "Making Home Affordable". The standard Homeowner's HOPE Hotline mantra with the HOMES of HOPE 888-995-HOPE number in red to get you to call for urgent help. This government has hijacked the word HOPE from day one and probably won't stop until they've moved on. … (4 comments)

san diego short sales: San Diego on Target for Low Prices and High Volume Sales in 2009 - 01/04/09 03:56 PM
San Diego on Target for Low Prices and High Volume Sales in 2009
San Diego is ripe for a great 2009 in the Real Estate Market. Prices are low and falling in the upper end price ranges and coastal communities. Interest rates are falling and should stay low through most of 2009. With the continuing foreclosures and the government helping homeowners and the economy out - here and there - the real estate in San Diego for 2009 should start the stabilization in the lower price ranges of single family detached homes. I'm starting to see it already and the entry … (0 comments)

san diego short sales: Comparing San Diego Foreclosures and Short Sales - 12/05/08 03:52 AM
Comparing San Diego Foreclosures and Short Sales 
Comparing Foreclosures and Short Sales is sort of like comparing Apples to Oranges. Foreclosures in San Diego will sell fast and get multiple offers if they are priced correctly and in a desirable price range. It seems that the magic number or price range for a single family detached home is anything under $400,000. Most of the time there are aggressive offers and many offers in this price range which will also drive the price up on the REO. Not only is the price important to the asset managers who will ultimately decide which … (0 comments)

san diego short sales: San Diego Foreclosure Trends - 08/21/08 04:51 AM
San Diego Foreclosure Trends
One of the trends I'm starting to see in the San Diego Real Estate Market is that buyers have been and are really starting to bid up the foreclosures. I'm starting to see foreclosures sell for more than what a comparable short sale or regular sale "although in some areas of San Diego there are not too many of those" are selling for. What also needs to be considered is that most foreclosures are in poor condition compared to other homes or condos on the market. In many cases the yards are dead, they have been partially … (3 comments)

San Diego Short Sales Gumming up the Works
The Short Sales in San Diego County are really gumming up the works. We are working with many San Diego Home Buyers and the short sales, quite frankly can really confuse buyers buying a home or condo in San Diego.

There can be 150 homes for sale in a said zip code and out of those 150 homes, 100 could be short sales. Out of those 100 … (2 comments)

Short Sales Become the Norm
After reading an article on MSNBC about short selling homes throughout the United States I found some of the facts very interesting. Here in Southern California, San Diego County to be exact we have been hit with many foreclosures and more and more homeowners that need to sell but owe more money on their home than what they can sell it for are choosing the short sale option. Right now in our office we are handling over 40 short sales in San Diego County, some in the Chula Vista Area as well and homeowners are optimistic … (5 comments)

San Diego Short Sales
What is a short sale?
Definition of a short sale is: When a homeowner owes more money to the lender through their mortgage on their home than what the home is worth. The mortgage holder or lender agrees to accept less money for the home than what the loan payoff is. In many cases lenders will accept an offer from a buyer represented by a real estate agent that is less then what the home was purchased for. This can be a better option for a homeowner than having the bank foreclose on the home. more at San Diego Real … (0 comments)

san diego short sales: Short Sale Blues - 10/09/07 07:15 PM
 
 
I'm singing the short sale blues. I'm singing these blues because it can be so very hard to get the banks to accept an offer. Many of the banks want the offers to be as high as the last closed comps in a market that's clearly trending down. I mean it doesn't take a genius to see that prices are getting lower and lower at least it is here in many areas of San Diego. Some of my favorite blues hits are:
