San Diego Homes Lead Recovery

By any measure, San Diego real estate has really been taking off in recent months. We’ve been saying for a long time that San Diego was the first to burst in the real estate bubble, and it will be the first to come back out of the hole. And now San Diego homes are appreciating […]

California Home Buyer Tax Credit!

This news is just in, and it’s great news for prospective buyers of San Diego homes!  The California legislature has acted again to provide a $10,000 tax credit to first-time home buyers and to purchasers of new construction.  It is a powerful move to further strengthen the real estate market in the state.  The $8,000 […]

Extend Home Buyer Tax Credit!

Extending the $8,000 first-time homebuyer tax credit is one government stimulus policy that makes sense. Nationwide, about twenty percent of first-time home purchases during 2009 were directly related to the tax credit.

Others are attempting to sell their homes and receiving multiple offers at a decent “market price”, only to have the appraisals come in unrealistically low. Why? The reason is the new […]

San Diego Real Estate Prices Part1

Rancho Penasquitos I cringe when I read the newspaper or hear a report on the TV or radio that gives a median home price or average house price for San Diego County. This is a large and diverse area. San Diego home sales differ between neighborhoods almost as much as the San Diego terrains and […]

La Jolla Seals Facing Foreclosure?

Almost everyone who has visited La Jolla in recent years has taken time to stroll past the Children’s Pool to take in the sight of waves crashing against the sea wall, and to watch seals and sea lions bask in the sun. The seals have become a fixture in the area for years, as more […]

San Diego Home Prices Up Again

The San Diego Association of Realtors released the May 2009 home sales statistics on June 11. These numbers have been anxiously awaited by San Diego real estate professionals. And for some reason the SDAR delayed posting the numbers on their website until June 11, but backdated the post to June 5. It seems like the […]
