San Diego Real Estate–How one woman used 20 Boyfriends to Buy her Home!

San Diego Real Estate–How one woman used 20 boyfriends to buy her home. I can’t find even one. So, I’m sitting here scratching my head trying to figure out how a woman in China was able to get 20!

Scam or not, I have to applaud her for her ingenuity. There are thousands of ways to save for a home. That got me thinking, how are we as Americans wasting our hard earned...

San Diego Real Estate–Fannie Mae is part of the Housing Crisis

Home ownership is at a 50 year low and Fannie Mae may be part of the reason San Diego Real Estate Rents and Home Prices are so out of control.  Why you ask?  Well, Fannie Mae has partnered up with a company called Invitation Homes.  It’s the nation’s largest owner of single family homes for lease. According to REALTOR Magazine–a trade industry publication for REALTORS across the United States–Invitation homes will purchase single family homes in California, Florida, North Carolina and other areas with limited supply....

San Diego Real Estate–Clearing the Bad Energy

Have you ever been attracted to someone when they walk into a room?  Not physically attracted but when they walk in you can actually feel the energy and presence that they bring.  Now ask yourself, have you ever been in a house that just felt weird?  Have you ever walked into a home and was told that it was haunted?  That’s energy.  In fact, if you know anything about physics, you know that everything is energy. You see, when we buy homes or sell homes there is an energy in each and every home.  In some cases, there is bad energy or bad...

It’s actually quite a good question.  I travel a lot, so, I’ve got this doing business thing on the road down to a science. First, most agents have a team behind them.  That means you’ll never be left in the dark.  For example, myself, I have my broker, transaction coordinator,...

No Appraisal on a Home Purchase?

It is a tell tale sign that the real estate market could be changing.  Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac both announced they will be offering property inspection waivers on some home purchases.  Why?  Well in their FAQ’s online, Fannie Mae says, “they wanted to offer borrowers a choice for efficiency and cost savings by foregoing an appraisal on some lower loan to value (LTV) purchase transactions. So is this a good thing?  I’m not exactly sure.  Scratching my head on this end trying to figure out why Fannie would do this.  It was...

Ego:  It kills real estate transactions

Ego.  We all have one.  If we recognize it, we can see it stares us in the face.  It’s that ugly little monster.  It’s also the one thing that destroys real estate transactions.  Why?  Because real estate agents have huge egos. My company operates is on the premise that every transaction needs to be a “win-win” or there is no deal.  I look at a real estate transaction as one big math problem that just needs to be solved.  So if every transaction should be a “win” for both sides and it’s really just...
