Real Estate Termite Inspections

Real Estate Termite Inspections

Here in San Diego California where the average  residential resale prices now over $500,000, most homeowners realize the value of maintaining their property and so any landscaping maintenance or peeling paint is usually addressed quite quickly. But when it comes to one of the most destructive conditions  that face homeowners, the vast majority elect to go with the out of sight out of mind philosophy.

Sure, but I’m talking about here is termites and dry rot. These are two main things that San Diego pest control companies look for when doing a home inspection. I don’t think that there’s many homeowners who haven’t seen houses that are tented to eradicate termites. It’s unfortunate but this usually occurs because the home entered escrow and the purchaser requested a termite/pest control clearance. Read more »

California Home Hunting

California Home Hunting – The Millennial Home Buyer

This is a very humorous, and unfortunately very true ( especially here in California)   depiction of a young millennial trying to buy his first home.

I’m sure some might think this is true of our current housing market situation in California . . .  and it is!  but, the overpriced housing market in California has been around for decades!  what’s different now, is the fact that due to a shortage of available, and affordable homes in California the situation has been compounded in the last 2 to 3 years.

The last time I was working with a millennial couple looking for a two-bedroom condominium here in San Diego, it took over a year, and three different offers on properties, before we were able to close escrow on their first home.

Now, keep in mind that my first-time home buyer clients were well qualified for their price range, and with help from their folks were putting 20% down.  Yet it was very frustrating to find a decent property that did not have multiple offers on it within days of its original listing.

A unique visitor is one visit from a unique IP address  within a 24-hour period. What this means, is that if you visited this site today from your smart phone, laptop, or desktop computer, it would count your visit as one unique visit. If a few hours later today, you again visited the site from the same Internet appliance, your second visit would not be counted at all. If you visited again the following day, or perhaps I should say at least a minimum of 24 hours from your last visit, it would count you as another unique visitor. Read more »
