Coronado

Coronado (Spanish for “crowned one”) is a resort city across the San Diego Bay from downtown San Diego. It lies on a peninsula connected to the mainland by a 10-mile tambolo called the Silver Strand. The city is accessible from downtown San Diego via the Coronado Bridge, by ferry boat, or by water taxi. World-famous Hotel del Coronado (founded in 1888), nationally top-rated beaches, and historic homes are Coronado’s jewels. The city is also home to numerous restaurants, cafes, boutiques, two theaters, a golf course, a yacht club, and several marinas. Coronado – also known as the Crown City or Coronado Island – is one of the most expensive places to reside in the United States.

La Jolla

La Jolla (Spanish for “the Jewel”) is a hilly seaside resort community within the City of San Diego, occupying 7 miles of curving coastline along the Pacific Ocean. What started as a getaway spot for San Diegans craving sea air and stunning views, got its official start in 1887. Hollywood stars flocked to La Jolla in the 1920s and ’30s, and when the University of California San Diego (UCSD) came in the mid-1960s, La Jolla was established as a hub for innovation and scholarship. In addition to UCSD, La Jolla is home the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Salk Institute, Stephen Birch Aquarium and Museum, La Jolla Playhouse, Mount Soledad National Veterans Memorial, Torrey Pines Gliderport, and the Torrey Pines Golf Course. The community is well known for its beautiful beaches, breathtaking views, an array of water activities, upscale boutiques, import shops, art galleries, fine restaurants, elite hotels, and premier real estate.

Pacific Beach & Mission Beach

Established in 1887, Pacific Beach (aka “P.B.”) is one of San Diego’s oldest suburbs. The neighboring community of Mission Beach was developed in 1914. Pacific Beach’s namesake stretches for miles from the Mission Bay jetty to the cliffs of La Jolla. Residents and visitors flock to the 3.2-mile oceanfront boardwalk and the adjacent Crystal Pier. In addition to stretching along the Pacific Ocean, P.B. and Mission Beach border the recreational Mission Bay Park – the largest man-made aquatic park in the country. The P.B.-Mission Beach area is dotted with parks, restaurants, bars, cafes, and shops. It is home to a younger crowd, including college students, single professionals, and families. Due to rising property and rental costs the population is gradually becoming older and more affluent. The real estate includes old-style cottages, condos, as well as upscale houses with spectacular ocean, bay, and city views.

Mortgage Pre-Approval

As a prospective purchaser, it makes sense to start the financing pre-approval early on so you can get a firm handle on your interest rate and estimate of closing costs. If you do this prior to searching for your house or condo, you can shop with a greater sense of freedom and security – knowing that the money will be there when you find the property.

When you are ready to make an offer, it makes sense to negotiate from the strongest position possible. In today's market, it's not uncommon for a seller to receive multiple offers on their property. Sellers can be selective in the final buyer they choose to negotiate with. All things being equal, a pre-approved buyer will almost always win. With that said, there are things you can do to make certain that your offer is the one the seller accepts.

Pre-approval is fast, easy and free. Should you decide to take advantage of it, simply contact us and we will forward your information to one of our preferred mortgage professionals who can assist you.

10 Common Buyer Traps

Buying a house or condo in San Diego is a major investment no matter which way you look at it. For some buyers, it can be an even more expensive process than it needs to be because they fall prey to at least a few of the many common and costly mistakes. These mistakes trap them into:

  • losing the property to another buyer, or
  • buying the wrong property for their needs.

A systemized approach to the buying process can help you steer clear of these common traps, allowing you to not only cut costs, but also secure the property that's best for you.

A special industry report has recently been released entitled 10 Home Buying Traps and How to Avoid Them. The report discusses the ten most common and costly buyer traps, how to identify them, and what you can do to avoid them. Read this important report before you purchase your property.

Trading Up & Downsizing
Unlike the experience of buying your first house or condo, when you already own a property and are looking to trade up or downsize to another, there are certain factors that can complicate the situation. It's very important for you to understand these issues before you list your property for sale.

Not only is there the issue of financing to consider – especially when trading up – but you also have to sell your property at exactly the right time. The timing is crucial in order to avoid the financial burden of owning two properties or, just as bad, the dilemma of having no place to live during the gap between closings.

In answer to this, industry insiders have recently prepared a special report entitled 6 Housing Mistakes to Avoid When Trading Up or Downsizing. The information contained in this report will help you make informed choices before you put your property on the market in anticipation of moving to another. Read this report now and find out how to make your move worry-free and without complications.

Pets & Moving

Moving can be hard on everyone involved: adults, kids, and yes... even your pets! While your pet may not understand exactly what is going on, they can sense the stress (good or bad) that the whole family is experiencing. Add to that the fact that animals are creatures of habit and do not like changes to their usual routine, and you can understand why they become so confused. They can also become quite anxious when all of a sudden they see their human family busily throwing everything around them into boxes.

Naturally, we always want to keep our pets happy and healthy because we love them. However, we also want to lessen the chances of their "acting-out." Animals, just like people, can behave rather badly under stress. We need to do all we can to help them feel secure throughout the moving process.

With this in mind, we have gathered helpful moving tips from industry experts that any pet owner can easily follow. These tips can be found in a special report entitled Pet Owners: Making the Move Easier on Your Pets. Read this important report now if you're planning on moving with pets.
