What are the rules for using Child Support and/or Alimony as "Qualifying Income" for a Mortgage Loan Application? There is often a disparity between "Real Income" (the amount of money we actually receive) and "Qualifying Income" (the amount of income that is recognized on a mortgage loan application).  With regards to receipt of Alimony and/or Child Support, this disparity is often accentuated.  Below are a few things that need to be known by all Divorcing Homeowners and/or the Professionals who serve them.  Divorce Mortgage guidelines are unique. "The Rule of 6/36" (Part 1) The first number (6) pertains to "historical receipt of income.  The idea behind this emphasis is to determine if the agreed upon payment is actually being made by the Payor in a manner that is consistent with Fanni...

Do you know how there are some businesses that most people can do and yet the way they approach their business is what makes them stand out? Then there are businesses that not only give you outstanding customer service, but they can also help fulfill your needs for specialized applications or processes. Well, this is the kind of business I want to talk about. Assembly Supplies Co. is a local business based in San Diego county in Escondido, California that supplies hot air tools and accessories for plastic welding and hot air applications. Now you might be wondering what kind of industries use hot air tools? Well, for one, the roofing industry does and this is why I want the roofers of the construction industry to know that they exist.

12th Annual Brasil Jazz Festa is Sunday March 6 in San Diego Our favorite jazz festival, the 12th Annual Brasil Jazz Festa, will take place at Dizzy’s in San Diego, on Friday March 6, beginning at 7 pm. My wife and I have a particular fondness for this event, having attended the first 4 of these festivals when they were held in Encinitas beginning in 2008, and a number of others since moving to Dizzy’s. We’ve come to know a number of the musicians, and have attended solo concerts they have brought to the San Diego community over the years. The Brasil Jazz Festa music is always wonderful, with regulars as well as guest artists, and with a relatively small audience and an intimate venue, it’s a special treat. We have been following the Danny Green Trio for over 10 years (we just attended ...

 I'm SUArta Back!  The FHA Spot Condo Approval Mortgage lenders that see a fair amount of FHA loans have, for the last few years, lamented the loss of the condominium "spot" approval.  This erstwhile shortcut would allow a single unit of a condo project to be eligible for an FHA loan even where the entire project might otherwise not pass muster.  And for FHA, it's been widely recognized since the sunsetting of the spot approval that buyers whose search requires an FHA loan and a price range that might only include condos, had real challenges ahead.  Specifically, their target inventory would need to be confined only to existing FHA-approved projects, which can be found on the FHA approved condo list. However, as of 10/15/2019, the Federal Housing Administration has reinstated a version ...

The Savina sales team recently announced they are over 70% sold. That is amazing news for this new construction high rise considering the overall market conditions. Savina seems to have way more activity than the rest of the resale condo market in downtown San Diego.What sets Savina apart is the incredible location, right at the edge of the waterfront and little italy districts where all the action is. The waterfront has over $3.1 billion in redevelopment over the next 5 years. No doubts the best investment is the SD Waterfront area. Learn more about Savina in our page dedicated to Savina San Diego Condos.

11th Annual Brasil Jazz FestaSunday March 24, 2019 in San Diego We are so looking forward to the 11th Annual Brasil Jazz Festa that takes place at Dizzy’s in San Diego, on Sunday March 24, beginning at 6 pm. (photos shared with permission)  We have a particular fondness for this event, having attended the first 4 of these festivals when they were held in Encinitas beginning in 2008, and having gotten to know a number of the musicians. We have attended a few of the concerts downtown but somehow the time of day and drive has made it harder or it has conflicted with other activities. The Brazilian music is always wonderful, with regulars as well as guest artists, and with a relatively small audience and an intimate venue, it’s a special treat. The only better thing would be attending a con...
