Do you Understand the HUD-1?  Do you know how to Prepare a HUD-1? So you take a short sale listing... you collect the documents and send the short sale package to the bank... the bank requests a HUD-1 in order to approve your short sale... you ask the Escrow company to prepare your HUD-1, but they won't prepare it until the escrow is opened... and escrow won't be opened until the bank approves your HUD-1!  Sounds like a catch-22, right?    What's the solution?  Learn to prepare your own HUD-1 forms and get in control of your transactions.  Short Sale success depends upon many factors, and one of the most important is to prepare a HUD-1 correctly.  The bad news is that 99% of Realtors® cannot prepare a HUD-1.  We've been relying on the escrow company to prepare it.  The good news is that...

Del Mar Mud Run Tired of the same old, same old 5K runs and walks? Looking for something just a little bit different? You're looking for the Del Mar Mud Run, and I'm here to tell you all about it! The Del Mar Mud Run will take place November 13, at the world-famous Del Mar Fairgrounds: There will be military-style obstacles — this is a military town! — lots of mud, and, of course, the after-race Mud Fest on the track infield, but only after crawling through mud tunnels and mud pits, getting through the tire obstacles (muddy, of course!), the cargo nets, and the jump walls. Anytime there is mud involved — ever played mud football in college? — shenanigans are encouraged. If you're racing, well, bring your spouse. Spouse doesn't want to race? Sounds like a mud bath is in order. This is a...

Short Sale Process Explained - Del Mar California - Short Sale my Home Do you think you are in a potential short sale situation?  Do you know your options?   You do have them... Overview:   Short sales typically occur when a borrower is in a situation where the home is worth less than what is owed to the lender on the property.   In some cases depending on the borrowers situation, the lender may approve a short sale which allows the property to be sold for less than the amount owed.   In this case the lender approves the short sale and takes less, and the borrower is no longer responsible to pay the loan.   In some cases the lender can ask that the borrower take back a loan to pay the deficiancy amount between what was owed and what the property sold for.   However, in many cases, this...

The seasonal slowdown for Autumn is not yet showing in the Carmel Valley real estate months of inventory.  It is a hot, seller's market for condos and townhomes in nearly all price ranges.  Similarly, single family homes are also in high demand through about $1,250,000. Not unexpectedly, it is still a buyer's market at the high end, about $1,500,000 and above.
