  First I want to start this by saying that I like Ladera Ranch, California. It's a lovely planned community. There are walking/biking trails adjacent to every home, lush parks and amenities...even a water park for the residents. But it's NOT Mission Viejo! I don't mean that as a "moral" equivalent (would you classify real estate as moral? maybe not) but as an actual location. I bring this up because often online this issue is confused. The Ladera Ranch zip code of 92694 is often listed as Mission Viejo. I have a new client who lives in Michigan and will be moving out this fall. We are doing the majority of our work via emails and listings....in fact, she will most likely write the offer based on pictures, video and Google Earth. Isn't that amazing?  Based on her concept of the perfect...

Developer KB Homes is building again in Irvine KB Homes plans to start selling many new tracts in the Irvine area. It is good to see. We know we look at the statistics we see and know that we need more inventory. Thank goodness the developers are once again helping and developing in the area. It is just one more sign that the market is going well. This is one of many developers in the area that are begining to build homes once again.  It is important because when they start selling the activity attracts more buyers to the area.  The area will sell more homes where development is at play. Thank you KB Homes for the leadership in developing more hosing for the area.

Starting February 1, 2012, Freddie Mac will give unemployed borrowers in Ladera Ranch, CA and other cities nationwide  have the  option to take a yearlong break from mortgage payments. If you lost your job and your loan is with Freddie Mac, note that the extended grace period, or forbearance of payments, operates in two steps. First, borrowers will be allowed to refrain from paying mortgages for six months without Freddie Mac's approval. After six months, Freddie Mac has the option to extend the forbearance for another six months. This year long grace period promises more relief than a former three-month forbearance granted by mortgage servicers. The hope is that the extended grace period will allow families who are facing longer periods of unemployment the chance to resolve their delin...

In a Forbearance Agreement, the bank agrees to hold back its legal right to exercise foreclosure on you. They agree to this because they come up with a plan to get you on track with your mortgage payments after giving you a certain period of time to recover. With Forbearance, your mortgage payments are either reduced or suspended for a time set by the lender.After the Forbearance period, you have to resume making the old payments together with some additional partial payments to cover the debts and eventually get the loan on track. Banks may require you to make a single, lump sum payment by a certain date to cover all the missed payments. Also, the mortgage company may be willing to grant forbearance to people whose incomes have been temporarily decrease because of specific situations, ...

The bottom of the market may have already happened in Ladera Ranch home prices. Inventory is going down because when you factor in the number of homes that can actually close escrow because they are an equity sale of a foreclosure sale, you won’t find that many homes that are available to buy in 30 days. Because of that, the trend is heading up for prices. No one really knows when the bottom of the market will hit. No bell will ring to tell you it is time to start buying. Interest Rates are extremely low and there is a pent up demand for people who have been waiting for the market to hit bottom. As of today there are only 81 homes for sale in Ladera Ranch, CA which is a community of over 6000 residences. In addition there are 161 homes in a Backup or Pending status of escrow. There is l...
