The home loan process today is more complicated than it has ever been. The aftermath of the housing bubble has lenders scrutinizing every loan file to make verify that each home buyer is an acceptable credit risk. When you start shopping for a home loan it’s important to know that the best loan for you is not necessarily the one with the lowest interest rate. Everyone who is approved for a home loan these days will get a fantastic interest rate, but some will be a little better than others based on down payment amount, credit profile and property type.

Is our Temecula Real Estate market changing back again to a buyer market?  I have been studing our current Temecula listing/sales data and my take on it is we are headed back to a buyers market. Why? The lack of inventory we have had in the past few months is now over. Many sellers that were on the fence have listed their homes,and many seller who could not sell their homes last year due to low values now can. Inventory is up and so are prices! The investors / buyers are now few. They have moved on to lower priced area's. The buyer who are left and there are many, are now in control and they are not biting on the many now over priced Temecula home listings.   What do I see happening? Just look at any of our popular home tracts and in the MLS you will see many price reductions. The smart...

Foreclosure is tough, really tough — but it’s not the end of the world. With careful planning, discipline and a little help you can get a mortgage and own a home again. Here are seven manageable steps you should follow:   1. Stick with your job – If you fell into foreclosure because of unemployment or a lack of steady work, your first task is to find another job and stick with it, even if it’s lower-paying.  All mortgage lenders require stable employment before considering you for a post-foreclosure loan.   2. Rebuild your nest egg – You should build a cash reserve, equivalent to at least six months of your living expenses, including mortgage payments. You have already had one foreclosure, and this ‘safety net’ will reassure lenders that you can weather any short-term financial storm, s...

Should you continue to rent or is now the right time to buy a home? There are a number of rent vs buy calculators, including those offered by Trulia.com, Realtor.com and Homes.com. They generally all make the same recommendations based on the same criteria: monthly rent, home price, how long you plan to remain in your home and property taxes. The more sophisticated of those tools factor in taxes and ancillary costs of renting and homeownership that are sometimes overlooked. On the homeownership side, those expenses include down payment, closing costs, selling costs, maintenance costs, utilities and homeowners insurance. On the renting side, they include security deposit, broker’s fee and renters insurance (the New York Times’ rent vs. buy calculator appears to be unique in factoring in ...

Market Report: Homes for Sale Paseo Del Sol, Temecula 5-2014 by Lisa Delzompo, 951-704-4559 The market for homes for sale in Temecula's Paseo Del Sol is pretty healthy!  Sales in the prior month are close in number to both Pending and Active listings, so sellers are not over-pricing homes as much in this neighborhood as of May 2014.  Those listings that linger on the market, though, are overpriced for their condition. To search homes for sale in Paseo Del Sol, Temecula, click this link or click any icon or pic in this post.  Or contact me, or my spouse Frank Delzompo of Sand to Sea Properties.
