Do You Appreciate Gas Prices Dropping?

HELLLOOOO MY BEEEUUUTIFUL WONDERFUL BAY AREA!…

For those of us in a certain age bracket…shortly after I posted the price drop of gas by a couple dollars in our Great Bay Area… (one of the much younger than most of us)… on the move… up and coming… very brite young entrepeneurs FB friends I have… posted his own comment on why we’re silly to get excited over saving a few bucks… HAH!…

Personally I was amazed at his pompous thinking…this younger generation feel they know all things smart!…HAH! (must be nice to think its no big deal to save a couple bucks on gas per gallon) this GenXr has no idea at one time we literally raced to get in line in the wee hours of the morning ie) 3- 4-5 am (forget about 6am you would be too late)… to get gas that jumped from 37 cents per gal. to 63 cents!! Not to mention gas was rationed at one point… Call me “old” call me “silly”… Life repeats itself in so many ways… I remember vividly how my Mom would constantly remind us by example and always repeating the importance of comparing prices and saving every bit we could…

Its nice FB allows comments from all … how unfortunate some very brite folks can be “a day late and a dollar short”…!! or is two dollars short… and yes people I do save pennies too.

Buying vs Renting

Not sure about becoming a home owner? Do the numbers and the decision is real easy.

Who Says Its Not a Good Time to Buy??

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
Scott & Jen are my awesome clients who worked hard & saved as much as they could…When it was time… they were ready!… They now own a home in a wonderful treelined family neighborhood… in a location they never imagined they would call HOME!!
 

HELLLLOOOOOO My Wonderful Beeeeeeeauuutifull Bay Area… Its another gorgeous day in our Cities by the Bay!…

Lots of Buyers have been feeling down in the dumps over the rising interest rates, competing with “all cash” investors, having to make no loan and/or no appraisal contingencies, just way too many offers on just one little home… I know, I know, I know… have been hearing your thoughts and complaints, your wishes and wants… I just wish I had a magic want to get my buyer clients the home they want!… the best motto we should all stick by is “If there’s a will… there’s a way!”

I’m totally one of those who believe this thoroughly… its amazing how much power we have if we just apply this attitude…

I saw this article written by Beth Braverman at The Fiscal Times… please read and get re-energized… I’m always available to chat and discuss your real estate questions…

Homes to 9,000 Homeless Vets…

United States Department of Housing and Urban ...

HELLLLOOOO My Beautiful Wonderful Bay Area!….Today is a cooler day but soon to be warmer days… I hope you’re all enjoying our Wonderful Bay Area… Today I’d like to revisit “homeless vets”…. I wish I could find a way to truly help our vets…homeless, disabled and otherwise … for all they’ve done in service for our safety at home… we should all be so thankful and repay them in every way possible… the reality is we’ve havent held up our end of the bargain… the current sellers market allows sellers to peruse multiple offers, mostly over list price, as is, no contingency, best price and terms… the VA Loan was created to help and thank our vets… it does have certain requirements that hinder VA Loans to be looked as the best finance option in addition to a few other requirements…  if more owners who’s priority is to repay our vets by accepting their purchase offer backed by a VA loan… this would be a more ideal world… if this were true… to the contrary… owners however thankful they may be… are much more apt to accept an offer without any contingencies, with much higher down payments (VA loans dont require any downpayments), better terms and faster close times…of course they would… lets face it… if we were in that position can you honestly say you would accept an offer with a VA Loan?… (hmmmm if we were in a Buyer’s market I wonder what the climate for a VA loan would be)…which brings me to my update today…

As a reminder… here’s my posting on May 24,2012 (almost a year ago) http://bit.ly/11VtkuD

Today’s update…(is provided by RisMedia)… HUD & VA Team Up: Provide Homes to 9,000 Homeless Vets…  9000 Vets living on the streets or who are participating in the nation’s shelter system will soon find permanent homes due to extra $60 Million Dollars funded by HUD… (please read the link below)

This is good news… not the ultimate best… but definitely good… I hope we can one day find a way to erradicate this tragic situation once and for all.
