Great question, but no easy answer. Current price increases are exacerbated by extremely low inventory forcing almost auction like bidding. If inventory begins to grow that should slow. Interest rates will have a huge impact. I would think another 10% not out of the question with stability on rates and an easing of the current crunch on inventory.... more
Going shopping for a Home. It may seem backwards to shop for a mortgage before you shop for the house, but there are several reasons for doing this. Shopping for a mortgage will also help if you can get “pre-approved” for the amount you’d like to borrow. This means the lender has looked over your credit and financial statement and agreed to lend you the money. Sellers like pre-approved buyers because there’s less risk the deal won’t go through. First, you’ll find out how much you can borrow, which has a lot to do with how much house you can buy.

Ranch Bernardo Schools are great. The homes prices are great. The inventory at present is very low in the area.
Where are you moving from? How old are your dear sons?
Please let me know if I could be any assistance to you.
It will be difficult to find a furnished rental for only one month. You may want to consider other options until you can secure a yearly lease. Is it just you and your husband or do you have kids? What is your monthly rental budge? Are either you or your husband over 55?
More information is needed in order to help you. Another suggestion would be to look on Craig's List for rentals listed by owner or property management companies. (Just be careful not to send any money without checking out the property ownership first as there are scams as well on Craig's List).

Of course they do, First time buyers have a good chance if they have the right REALTOR and said REALTOR having the right offer and relationship. A serious buyer has to have all its ducks in a row:
-Letter of approval from the lender
-Proof of funds
-DU Results, Credit Report

It's actually just 14 days notice that is needed. So, if they have given you 14 days notice and you have a trustee sale date coming up, you do not have much time to figure out your options.
With such limited time to work with, every hour that passes is one more hour closer to your property being foreclosed. I specialize in helping people delay trustee sale dates even with very little time left. If you contact me directly, I can meet you tomorrow with all of the documents needed to try to get your trustee sale date postponed. No cost to you for my services.

You need FBS. Rentals are what we do. Rentals are all we do. Rentals are who we are in San Diego for more than 4 decades. We currently operate rental properties in 69 zip codes throughout the region. We have become the best center for resources essential to renters by choice as well as independent rental owners. We bring industry Best Practices to both. I appreciate the nearly 10,000 Trulia visitors that keep up with my profile as well as the 50,000 that follow Neil Fjellestad's blog. However, my perspective is only one thing that makes FBS the industry leader it is. Our unsurpassed team, our systematic approach to leasing & rendering service to our renters, our daily incorporating technologies that others are just talking about are all reasons for our leadership. But our leadership only matters when it matters to you. First, visit our website http://www.fbs-pm.com then contact our San Diego Metro Office. Start by speaking with Melissa. She'll direct you from there. Your requirement for no carpet throughout could be tough to accomodate. Be prepared as to what other requirements you could compromise. If you get involved with a rental that is planning a flooring improvement but the work hasn't been accomplished yet maybe you can negotiate something. The problem of course is that quality rentals within the 92106 and 92107 neighborhoods are in short supply and there is high demand. If you branch out to 92108 you will be within a 10 mile radius of Point Loma but have twice the selection. Let me know how you make out. Neil... more

I'm sure that within a few minutes you will have plenty of answers from many Realtors. Best bet is to speak with two or three, and make your decision based upon who you feel the most comfortable with after speaking with them.
That said, to be fair, select one, and let them do the leg work for you. Based upon your request for good schools and access to tennis, you might do a Google search as well, getting details on school statistics, as well as tennis clubs. Although, Carlsbad, Ranch Bernardo, and Poway might be a good fit. La Costa Tennis and Golf club is in Carlsbad, and a very nice resort.
Good luck, and let me know if you would eventually like information on financing.

What I am seeing in North County Inland is that rents are stable, or for those who have not made any changes in a while, they are able to up their monthly rental rates. As a general rule of thumb (of course, it depends on the location, condition of the unit, et.al), rentals are getting a solid 1.3-1.4 of the square footage. As for single family homes, wow!! Prices are clearly up with multiple offers, many well above already higher listed prices. It is funny to see human psychology and the herd mentality at play once again. As the saying goes, the "trend is your friend." Unfortunately, any time something is extreme, whether it be a substantial rise or decline in prices, I don't believe it is necessarily the best thing for the market. It will be interesting to see how this all unfolds.

Just an idea: there's a company that sells mfg homes, and if yours old really old, they'll buy your property from you so they can plop down a new mfg home on the lot and then sell it. Might be something to consider. I think it was Pacific Homes in San Marcos!... more
Depends on how well it has been maintained. Many many good solid houses over 50 years old. Just be sure to have your purchase inspected.
If you where to decide on and establish a geographical area you prefer to live in and establish a price range than see every property for sale in that area and price range you would become a very savvy home owner. Its not that difficlut of an undertaking. In my real estate years I walked hundreds and hundreds of people through the process and they were always happy with the results. There are a series for articles at Your-Road-Home.com that outline the process for you. You will also find articles on home inspection.
My advice has always been; gather information, gather information and...
Than after yu gather up all your information you will find loan officers and real estate agents on Trulia offering their services. Good source.
Best of Luck, Stephen... more
