Poway and many other communities are beginning to see values rise.  The fed is anticipated to allow the tax credit to expire and will stop buying mortgages from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.  This means mortgage rates will likely rise moderately, incentives for buying a home will expire leaving you with a more expensive transaction when buying a home. Waiting for the housing market to hit bottom?  Many reports are indicating that the housing market in San Diego County has already hit bottom and homes are being bought quickly.  You'll see values increase before the rest of the economy picks up steam due to many people sitting on the side lines and speculators waiting for reports.  The problem is that reports are a reflection of what happened 3 months ago and it may already be too late.

In April the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California announced that water deliveries to their member agencies will be starting on July 1, 2009. For the City of Poway these implications meant a reduction in overall water consumption by 8% or else residents and businesses would have faced significant penalties and restrictive measures. Even though 2 years ago Powegians have reduced water consumption in an effort to solve the permanent water shortage problem, there is still a way to go. The City of Poway and San Diego region are exploring options to diversify the water supply.   How will this affect Poway Home Owners?   For Poway Homeowners one of the solutions may be to implement gray water system. In essence, this means to reuse laundry and bathing water for landscape irrigati...

San Diego Real Estate Blog Poway Rodeo 2009The Poway Coors Rodeo September 25 - 27 2009 Poway, San Diego California.We were invited to head on out to the Rodeo in Poway by a good friend. We couldn't resist because we knew how much fun the event would be. We went up on Saturday Night on September 26 and found the tickets to be reasonably priced thanks to the many sponsors who helped out including Wal-Mart and Coors. The crowd was great and it felt like being in the mid west at a hometown rodeo. Well I would have to say Poway is San Diego's little piece of the Country in San Diego County.We arrived and took our seats in the stands  and enjoyed the bronco riding and then the Shooting Stars Drill Team. What a show! The sheep riders were having a good time riding the sheep as hard as they co...
