San Diego Dig In and Get Prepared For Another Round of Heavy Rain   Don't become another statistic. There's another round of heavy rain about to hit the San Diego area.     Are you prepared? Have you checked around your home and property for vulnerable flood zones? Have you cleaned your rain gutters?  How about the catch basins in and around your yard.

Long considered one of the ‘Crown Jewels’ of the Southern California Beach town scene is Del Mar.

Everyone has a camera or a video recorder on their mobile phone.  People are taking pictures and video everywhere they go, so it just seems natural to want to take photos of a house you may purchase.  But you should take photos of the homes only if you have written permission from the residents.It is usually okay to take a photo of the house from the street because that is something the public can easily see.  Besides, the photo of the front of the house is probably on Google maps already anyway.However, to take photos of the interior, you should get permission from the seller.  Even if it is a vacant house, the seller probably won’t mind; but ask your REALTOR® to contact the seller and get permission first anyway.Unless you have written permission from the residents, taking photos of o...

Helpful Tips from Tom Bass, EA CTC, Fellow of the National Tax Practice Institute Because most savvy people (or at least those who have a smart tax pro in their corner  ) can decide the timing and amount of capital gains they choose to realize each year, the capital gains tax is considered by many economists to be very "elastic".And as such, the amount of capital gains we choose to realize on your behalf depends heavily on the favorability of the capital gains tax rate.As a result, over half of capital gains in this country are never taxed. They are avoided completely. But that means the effort of avoiding the tax causes capital to be allocated inefficiently in the meantime.In my opinion, this particular tax can sometimes punish growth and entrepreneurship. Were the capital gains tax to...
