Developed in the 1890s, Bankers Hill appealed to both renowned architects and the city’s wealthiest residents (hence the name). It features some of San Diego’s grandest historic homes, heirloom landscaping, and several footbridges above its deep canyons. The mostly residential community offers many classic architectural styles, such as late Victorian, Queen Anne, Georgian Revival, Craftsman, and Early Modern. Newer homes and condo towers, as well as a bevy of stylish restaurants, have joined the mix in recent years.

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:

  • paying too much for the property they want, or
  • 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.

Passing the Inspection

Whether you own an old house or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. It's critical that you identify and deal with these issues before you list your house for sale. If you wait until the buyer's inspector flags them, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your property sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away altogether. In most cases, you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you know what to look for.

According to industry experts, at least 33 physical problems come under scrutiny during an inspection. A recently released report, entitled 12 Things You Must Know to Pass Your Home Inspection, identifies the most common of these issues and what you should know about them.

Expired Listing

If your house or condo has just come off the market and has not sold, don't be discouraged. The reason it did not sell may have nothing to do with your property or the market. In reality, your house or condo may have been one of the more desirable properties for sale. So why didn't it sell?

In today's San Diego market, many properties listed for sale don't sell during the initial listing period. Owners of these properties found that there was a tremendous amount they needed to be educated on in order to successfully meet their real estate goals. Before you hire another real estate agent for job of selling your property, know the right questions to ask. Don't risk making the wrong choices and losing time, energy and money on your investment.

To help educate sellers before they sign another listing agreement, industry experts have prepared a special report entitled Expired Listing: How to Sell a Home that Didn't Sell. Read this report now and make sure your property actually sells the next time you put it on the market.

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.

Kids & Moving

Over the years, many studies have been conducted to define and rank which typical life experiences cause the greatest amount of stress for the average adult. For anyone who has had to make a move, it probably comes as no surprise that moving ranks within the top 10 of the most stressful events. Once you add children to the equation, the stress level only increases.

To help parents prepare their young children for the move, and also help them adjust to their new home and community after the move, we have compiled the best tips from industry experts. These tips can be found in a special report entitled Parents: Preparing Your Young Children for the Move. Read this important report now if you're planning on moving with children.
