Anaheim Kaiser Permanente Farmers Market I was at a Kaiser Permanente Hospital for some information(not patient related!) last Friday. As I came out of the parking structure I noticed a 'Farmers Market' going on. So went to the stalls and saw some of the healthy products only they sell. I shot a quick video of the Farmers  market vendors and location. It was fun, but I was there on business so did not spend much time there. I will go revisit soon though.   Here is one reason why Kaiser Hospital has these Farmers Market throughout... "It's not as crazy as it sounds. Eating more fruits and vegetables is part of good health. That's why we've opened farmers' markets outside our medical centers and clinics.    " More information and links.

  If There's A Will, There's A Way! Buyers Get The Deal   I woke up today ready to hit the ground running. What a week! I wrote a post about a week ago about an all cash transaction for a new client who called me after several other agents did not take them seriously? They wanted to buy a vacation rental near Disneyland. The day before the closing, we got HOA documents from the sellers and a review disclosed that that complex was sectioned into 2 different HOAs, one allowed vacation/short term rentals and one did not. The home we were buying did not! Ugh...cancellation! However..... Yesterday I had the opportunity to talk to the seller, an investor, and he was suggesting that we close anyway because there were plenty of people in the other complex interested in trading units for this o...

What will 2013 Hold For Mortgages? If there is one thing that really affects the sale of homes or any other property, it is the interest rates! As you may know, there is a buyer frenzy going on right now, there are multiple offers on homes and many homes are selling over the asking price. One of the reasons is because of the low low low interest rates. The lower the rates, the lower the payment and the affordability to own a home becomes much easier, so the buyer pool increases. Of course, the low inventory of homes is also affecting the home buyer frenzy.   What will 2013 hold for Mortgages?    For a market analysis or a snap shot of what is happening in your zip code, you can simply go here and get an instant report!

I still have a mortgage on my home -  do I qualify for a reverse mortgage?   A reverse mortgage can be used to payoff an existing mortgage and in my experience the majority of folks that I work with do have an existing mortgage (or two) to payoff.  The kicker is, will the reverse mortgage provide enough funds to payoff the existing liens?   Providing you qualify for a reverse in terms of age, occupancy and property, yes. As long as the reverse will loan enough funds to payoff the existing mortgage(s) then you are good as gold.  If the reverse does not provide enough, you have the option to kick in additional monies of your own along with the reverse to payoff the mortgage.FHA- HECM Reverse mortgages use the FHA HECM PLF tables to calculate the loan to value. Basically the older you are ...
