Not only were we in San Francisco and we went to the see the Giants well you know the Sequoias and Kings Canyon. First time we went was with my parents, then we decided to go back with friends the second time.

203k is alive and well in San FranciscoYour first thought is the home prices in the "city" are way to high for FHA loans. Let's look at that. The maximum loan limit for a SFR is $1,089,300. So You are correct for the most part however. if you consider the 3.5% down the purchase price with ONLY 3.5% down would be covered up to $1,128,808. I had a client who was capible of paying $1,500,000 all in cash but wanted to keep his cash flow available for his franchises. With a loan of $1,128,808 a purchase of $1,500,000 would require only a $371,192 down payment. Be creative with your thinking, think out of the box, tell me what you can do on your next purchase or sale.   1442 2-4-2024

The Four Horsemen of Deals Dead  My wife likes to joke that all I do for my job is talk to people.  "I hear you in there yucking it up all day..." So maybe there is always an element of the truth in jest, but an aspect of these conversations that she does not take into consideration is the near-constant battle I fight fending deals from The Four Horsemen; Delay, Indecision, Unfounded Expertise and The Unreasonable Pursuit of Perfection. When these vigilantes appear over the horizon of any real estate transaction, having a powerful defense can turn them away and save even the most vulnerable purchase or refinance.  The enemies of our real estate transactions can be real persons; buyers, sellers, family members, agents, lenders, underwriters, appraisers --- you name it.  But also, and mor...
