With so many different banks, brokers and lenders to work with understanding FHA interest rates has become extremely important for today's home buyer. FHA can be an ideal way to purchase a home with underwriting that is far more relaxed than typical loans and requiring less cash out of pocket than most loans (as little as .5% of the purchase price). How many other loan products will allow you to buy a $300K home with $1500(+-) and a low mortgage payment that is even lower than rent in some cases? There is much to learn but one item that is important is the FHA interest rates. Not all companies offer the lowest rates and not all loan officers offer the same rate within their own company! In order to insure you get the best rate for your scenario you need to look for a professional mortga...

Here are some tips for a first time home buyer in Poway to use when buying a home. It is important to select an agent that has experience working with a first time home buyer in Poway and has a good understanding of the Poway area. Real Estate is a process of elimination not selection. At any given time there are 18,000 to 22,000 homes on the market in San Diego. It would be impossible to go through all of those homes to determine which one to buy. The key is selection a specific area or neighborhood and start driving around. Then focus on the specific homes on the market in that area. Next, select the top 5 to 10 to view and then go look. Most people don't know what they are looking for until they find it. A first time home buyer in Poway needs to identify what the most important thin...

Mountain-Biking Home Inspector in Poway, CA Tackles Iron Mtn.     In between home inspections, one of the favorite things I enjoy is mountain biking. I recently had the opportunity to, once again, get the bike wheels rolling after a home inspection in Poway. I have driven by Iron Mtn. in Poway, CA countless times in my home inspection travels, and the place is always busy with hikers and bikers enjoying the great outdoors, but I had never stopped to see what all the interest was about.     This day, before leaving the office for my home inspection, I loaded my 27-speed GT mountain bike on the back of my vehicle and packed my riding gear. I was finished with my day's work by 3:00 pm, so I traveled east on Poway Rd. towards Iron Mtn.   The trail head for Iron Mtn. is at the junction of Ro...

San Diego Home Inspector Roof Inspection   I just finished conducting a home inspection for a client in Poway, CA near San Diego. I feel very blessed to be a San Diego home inspector where I never have to deal with snow or ice-covered roofs during a home inspection. I walk the roofs on 95% of the homes I inspect. The only time I will not go on a roof is when it is unsafe to do so, or if there are lightweight clay tiles installed (easily breakable). In that case, a limited roof inspection is done from the ground with binoculars, and/or from the roof eaves with a ladder. An experienced home inspector knows how to safely navigate a roof, and can do so without damaging the roof material.     A San Diego home inspector will find one of three types of roofing on 90% of the homes here in south...

  If you owe more than your house is worth and can't afford your payments, you might be able to sell it for less than you owe -- without having to pay the lender the difference.   If you can no longer make your mortgage payments and your home is now worth less than you owe on it, foreclosure may not be your only option. A short sale, in real-estate terms, is a sale of a house in which the sale price is less than what the owner still owes on the mortgage. It is a procedure sometimes agreed to by lenders, who often would rather take a small loss than go through the lengthy and costly foreclosure process, in which the lender allows the sale of a home for less than it is worth and forgives the rest of the note. While there are some significant negative consequences to a short sale, an ever-...

Mortgage rates started the morning slightly worse than yesterday and is currently remaining level.  News about Libya halting military action helped rally the stock market adding pressure to bonds which causes mortgage rates to rise. Signs of an improving economy is always bad for mortgage rates and vice versa. Current mortgage rate trends for those seeking mortgages in Poway San Diego are looking good if buying a home or refinance an existing home. I would suggest you take any improvement as a chance to get in during a lull because rates are headed higher. If you plan on locking in the next 7 days I suggest you float cautiously. If more than 7 days I suggest you lock. Offering FHA, jumbo, conventional and VA mortgages in Poway San Diego and throughout the state of California. We are one...
