san diego: Investors Buying Vacant Lots in San Diego County - 3.17.2013 - 03/17/13 04:11 PM
  Buying a house can be a challenge in today's market. Source Capital can help!
I have shared in my blog before about the increase in home purchasing being done by real estate investors. Now I’m going to add vacant lots to the equation. Although, we could have assumed this, it always seems to make facts more real when specific reports are made. Below is a link to an article citing one such instance. An investment group, which includes a local homebuilder, just purchased 41 residential lots in a gated community in Rancho Sante Fe, a beautiful and prestigious area of San Diego County.

san diego: Low Inventory and a Competitive San Diego Housing Market - 3.6.2013 - 03/06/13 05:06 AM
San Diego County has so much to offer! If only there were more homes for sale!

I know a very nice couple that is desperately trying to buy a house in San Diego County. They are San Diego natives and qualified buyers, ready to spend! The problem? Low inventory and all cash buyers!
The first issue they have run up against is lack of suitable homes. They are having a hard time finding property in their area of choice that meets their needs. Then, once they find something they like, they are often shut out of deals. Sometimes … (0 comments)

san diego: The Competitive San Diego Real Estate Market - 2.21.2013 - 02/21/13 04:04 PM
Beautiful San Diego waters are just one of the many things to love about living here.

As I have mentioned in previous blog posts, the market is becoming increasingly competitive with the number of cash in hand buyers. If you have to wait for a loan to be approved and/or the approved money to be available, you are no match for those that already have the funds. This can be frustrating and lead to even the most qualified of buyers missing out on making the sale.
In keeping with this topic, I wanted to share the Fox5 article … (1 comments)

No matter how you celebrate, enjoy it!

I hope you are enjoying your Thanksgiving eve. I have had all different types of Thanksgiving experiences. I’ve spent it with family, friends, big and little gatherings and both traditional and unique events.

san diego: Remembering September 11, 2001 - 9.11.2012 - 09/11/12 01:15 PM
Today is September eleventh. I’ve found myself stopping at different times today to pause and reflect. It’s hard to believe that it has been eleven years since I awoke to the clock radio, confused by what I was hearing. Still groggy, I went into the living room and turned on the TV and couldn’t believe what I was seeing and hearing. It was 9/11/2001.

This morning, over a decade later, I walked the dogs of a firefighter while he was at work. Afterwards I sent him a text to share my gratitude. I was glad that I was … (0 comments)
