AGE 55+ HOMEOWNERS AND PROPERTY TAXESor What is Prop 13, Prop 8, Prop 60 and Prop 90? by John Occhi, REALTOR®, SRES®, CPRES®, ePRO® March 3, 2014 Real Estate values have increased significantly across the Temecula Murrieta Valley and as a result property taxes will be going up, since many homeowners benefited from a Temporary Reduction in Value under the provisions of Prop 8. As a result of the increase in equity, many homeowners age 55+ will want to sell the homes they’ve been in for numerous years, cashing out and downsizing to a smaller more comfortable and manageable residence, enjoying the promises of their dream retirement. Ahhh, but it gets so confusing when all of the different property tax laws are looked at and applied to the sale of their current home.  So let me offer a snap...

Down payments are required on most loans when buying a home, and documenting the source of those funds is critical to the approval of your home loan. Private mortgage insurance is required on conventional loans with less than 20 percent down. Private mortgage insurance companies would, traditionally, require the 5 percent down payment to be the home buyer’s own funds, and not a gift. Related: Forget diamonds, a down payment is a girl’s best friend Recently, the private mortgage insurance companies changed their requirements on purchases of one unit primary residences and now the allow a gift for the entire down payment with no requirement for 5 percent of the borrower’s own funds. If the homebuyer did not have the cash for the down payment, he or she could get a gift from a relative and...

How to Replace Orthodontic Retainers for Less in Temecula CA 2014 The short answer is, go to Crossings Dental in Perris (951-345-4386), and save yourself almost half the cost of two retainers!  For us, that is $300!   Here's the full story: our daughter's retainers got wrapped in a napkin and tossed in the trash at our home in Murrieta before Waste Management came that day.  Unfortunately, we didn't realize the orthodontic retainers had gone into a trash bag until after all our trash was taken by WM! My first call was to our daughter's orthodonist, where I was told that they would cost $325 per retainer; so $650 for the two.  When they did the original mold, I remember being told that having that original mold would save me some money; now that the need arose, the office staff had no re...

Market Report Homes for Sale in Redhawk, Temecula as of 2-2014 You can search homes for sale in Redhawk by clicking on the pictures and icons in this blog post, or this link. Home prices for Redhawk homes for sale in Temecula have solidified at the levels they reached last summer.  Homes that stay on the market, though, are pushing the pricing a little too much, so that other, lower-priced homes sell more quickly. Most of the sales are standard sales, though; the short sales are far fewer than in the past few years.  And that bottom one is a probate. I'll include a few pictures of Redhawk homes, because I really like this neighborhood as an investment: lovely homes on quiet tree-lined streets with a Southwest flair, close to great schools like Great Oak High School, shopping and restaur...

It's Valentines Day, before you hire a skywriter or horse-drawn carriage, or wow your sweetie with diamond jewelry, be sure that you know what your beloved really wants. Because, it turns out, sparkly signs of affection may be lower down the list than you thought. A recent survey by ERA Real Estate of 1,000 people in committed relationships showed that nearly 50 percent of women would be willing to forgo a diamond ring in order to save the cash for a down payment on a house. In fact, 18 percent of those who responded said they already had skipped the ring in favor of the house. And 89 percent of those surveyed said that their love bond was strengthened by buying a home together. How Much Cash Are We Talking About? So, exactly how much house could a diamond buy? Let's use the most common...

When buying a home, many consumers make the mistake of confusing pre-approval with loan approval. Until you've been handed the keys to your new home your credit and financial profile will be scrutinized by your lender. Here are the 5 worst things you can do when buying a home 1. Go Credit-Crazy It’s almost become cliché in the mortgage industry, but the warning still bears repeating: Don’t buy a truckload of furniture until after your loan closes. The prohibition goes beyond sofas and settees — avoid obtaining credit for any major expense, such as a car, a boat or, yes, a new bedroom set. Be careful with even minor expenses. If you absolutely need to obtain new credit or accrue debt before closing, talk with your loan officer as soon as possible. Related: 2014 mortgage changes every hom...
