OK so attack is a bit dramatic but, my husband ahem, I mean business partner, spent several hours this morning rebuilding a gate at one of the properties we own and manage. The gate that was on the property had recently been kicked in and was in need of some serious repair.  Rumor has it that it was a neighborhood teenager that wanted to get in the back yard so he could smoke his marijuana. Who knows, I'm sure we will never know who the culprit was I just hope it doesn't happen again.The tenant requested that a taller gate be installed and we obliged.  While we were honoring our tenants request we also wanted to beef up the strength of the gate significantly to try to prevent any vandalism in the future. We don't generally have issues with vandals as we try to purchase properties that a...

While most of the market was enjoying a 4 day weekend, we "quietly" had quite the devastating day for rates on Friday. Immediately after the promising numbers of the jobs report were unveiled, we opened 127 basis points worse than Wednesday's closing. As the short market day progressed, we lost an additional 72 basis points. In early trading today, we are beginning to make up some ground, but we have far to go! This daily mortgage interest rate report is designed to provide Borrowers & Real Estate Profesionals with factual data regarding where rates are at any given time and what trends are propelling current mortgage pricing on any given day.

Besides working for a property management software company and providing tenant screening I have been searching for local investment opportunities in the housing market mostly casually but at times aggressively since around 2007. In Grants Pass, OR (my locale) the housing bubble was pretty well deflated by the end of 2008, there were plenty of properties on the market, prices were very negotiable, and the competition was light. Fast forward a few years to 2011 and the number of houses on the market dropped dramatically, prices were not as negotiable, and most of the time someone would beat me to offer. Today in 2013 something very different is happening and I think I may have run out of time to find any more properties that are going to pencil as a profitable rental property. I could si...

San Diego Memorial Day Events 2013 To Honor The Fallen   "It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.  Rather we should thank God that such men lived."  General George Patton Like so many other communities in the United States, people who live in San Diego are happy to celebrate the three day Memorial Day weekend with bar-b-ques and beach outings.  But, since we have such a huge military presence, over 100,000 active duty Navy and Marine personnel, Memorial Day is especially significant here.  San Diego has the largest concentration of military in the world!  To honor those that have given the ultimate sacrifice, we will have a few very special events on Memorial Day.   La Jolla Mount Soledad Veterans Memorial: Every year,  there is a Memorial Day ceremony to honor the fallen on ...

Google’s social networking website began with a relatively slow start in 2011. Since then it has picked up the pace and was at 343 million active users at the end of 2012 which is the highest used social networking site besides Facebook.
