Want to learn more about real estate? Look at properties every day.
Let’s view at least 200 videos this year, displaying 5+ houses each.
A year from now, you will have seen over 1,000 houses in North SD County Coastal region, and be able to evaluate any house around. You’ll feel more confident and comfortable about buying and selling, and when the right one comes along, you’ll be ready!
“It’s gonna be one mixed up world for the next couple years.”
Yes, and not just in San Diego real estate.
4 acres in the Covenant for maybe $1.2M? Definitely getting interesting…
Definitely getting better stuff here at more reasonable prices (relatively speaking).
*Chuckle* JtR, re: the last few videos and banks taking back properties, you’re like a broken record: “Wa Mu, Wa Mu, Wa Mu”. I just have to ask, “What were they thinkin’?”
Thanks for the great videos jim.
From another video, Jim says: “K I’m gonna leave the truck runnin’ just in case…”
Hahahahaha. Classic, been there done that Big Jim!
Keep on keepin’ on buddy!
WaMu was just banking another way.
Slow and steady, the flood begins…
Do you work in/around the RB/Poway/PQ/4S areas?
Thanks, Jim! I needed this. I had almost resigned to pushing my home purchase back another year or two than originally planned due to all the government intervention. But, just maybe, I’ll be buying sooner rather than later!
And the water table rises…
The Fresno Bee
By John Ellis
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger was at a Fresno housing development today to call for the extension of a $10,000 tax credit on existing and new-home purchases for first-time homebuyers.
The governor said job creation is one of his top priorities and “housing is a very important part of that puzzle.”
Schwarzenegger has proposed setting aside $200 million in his proposed 2010-11 budget and said the state can afford it.
“The best way to solve the budget crisis is to bring the economy back” and a robust housing market is a key to revitalizing it, he added.
The program, which already covers new home purchases is a proven success, the governor said
Even those in the San Francisco Bay area? SD real estate has been crazy, to be sure, but we’ve been writing the definitive work on the topic up here for some time.

Dear C.A.R. Member:
A new year, and with it, new beginnings and new opportunities. Like you, I’m looking forward to meeting the challenges that invariably present themselves as we get underway.
It’s heartening to see encouraging signs in both the general economy and the real estate market in California. As is often the case, California is ahead of the nation in market recovery. The state’s median home price increased year over year in November for the first time since August 2007, sales bottomed out more than two years ago, and the median home price reached its trough in February 2009. Going forward, we expect the statewide median home price to rise 3.3 percent to $280,000 this year, with a slight decrease in sales. While no one has an infallible crystal ball, it looks like the worst is behind us, and we can move forward with confidence that better days are ahead.
Jim is now trolling on his own blog.
On that Lynwood house, it looks like the minivan is parked against the other car in the driveway, which has to be parked against the garage door. Does that stop the repo guy?
Where was that 2nd house again? It was a bit hard to tell where you said.
