Homes For Sale In Coronado, CA - Coronado Homes For Sale Coronado California is one of our Premier Beach Communities in San Diego.  The idyllic beach town is only 2.3 miles from cosmopolitan downtown San Diego but seems light years removed from big city life.  We all think of Coronado as an island but actually it is a peninsula attached to the land by a 10 mile isthmus.  Most people drive from San Diego over the iconic, sweeping Coronado Bridge.  Years ago there was a fare to cross the bridge but it is free to travel now.  You can also reach Coronado, from San Diego, by ferry (take your bike and ride the 15 miles of Coronado bike lanes) or water taxi. A fairly small city, approximately 24,000 residents, Coronado is known for great schools, a charming Village with lovely shops, restauran...

Speechless Sunday's - Memorial Day Theme Since San Diego is such a huge military town (250,000 active duty, 900,000 veterans!), and we are so grateful for all they have done to protect us and our freedom, I thought I would share some military photos.  The first picture is one we took at the Century of Flight.  This was an event that celebrated 100 years of military flight training at Coronado Naval Air Station.  It was not that long after Orville and Wilbur invented planes that they were training military aviators to take off from Coronado Island!  They have come a long way in the equipment though.  Here are the revered Blue Angels.............     The next photo is of a V22 Osprey based at Miramar Marine Corps Air Station......   Happy Memorial Day!

If you owe more than your house is worth and can't afford your payments, you might be able to sell it for less than you owe -- without having to pay the lender the difference.   If you can no longer make your mortgage payments and your home is now worth less than you owe on it, foreclosure may not be your only option. A short sale, in real-estate terms, is a sale of a house in which the sale price is less than what the owner still owes on the mortgage. It is a procedure sometimes agreed to by lenders, who often would rather take a small loss than go through the lengthy and costly foreclosure process, in which the lender allows the sale of a home for less than it is worth and forgives the rest of the note. While there are some significant negative consequences to a short sale, an ever-i...

Roughly forty percent of the homes for sale on today's market are short sales and foreclosures! Distressed properties are well known for their value (a reputation which is sometimes accurate, and sometimes not), but they also have a reputation for causing buyers to become distressed, too!Transactional snafus, last-minute surprises and long, drawn-out escrows that never close seem to be par for the course. Instead of avoiding these properties altogether, get educated about the most common dramas that go down in these deals, and how you can avoid falling victim.1.  Run-on (and on, and on) escrows.  When you're buying a home (or selling one, for that matter), time is absolutely of the essence.  And buyers reasonably expect that the big time suck in real estate is in the house hunting proce...

A Client Story- Coronado Home Inspector I meet some very interesting clients as a home inspector here in southern California. Some young- some old, some first-time buyers- some veteran investors, some native Californians- some from out-of-country. Every new day is a surprise. It's what makes my occupation so very interesting. As a Coronado home inspector, I realize I am in the people business. I love meeting new people! The majority of my clients are home buyers. It brings me great pleasure to help bring clarity to them at a time when they are under a great deal of stress. Especially first-time home buyers. A real estate transaction can make them feel as if they are joining the military with all the paperwork involved. The process can be a bit overwhelming for them. A well-done home ins...

Perhaps the most important fact to understand is that in today's economy short sales are a must to sell properties. Since property values have declined nationwide at such a rapid pace, The National Association of Realtors predicted that in 2009 and 2010 over 50% of all properties sold will be short sales or REO properties. It is unavoidable.  If a house is to be sold in today's market, then a short sale will be needed to make that happen.  Short sales require hours upon hours of work, and organization is imperative in order to get them done.  Also be aware that short sales will typically take approximately 3-4 months to complete depending on which state you are in (see below for typical lender timelines), and that is simply because the majority of lenders are overwhelmed at the moment, ...

4 Reasons Why Online Home Buyers Should Consider Using A Realtor! Home shopping online has become a mainstream way for the public. But going shopping alone - without the help of a professional - can become a huge handicap for home buyers.Here are four reasons why home-shoppers need the help of a real estate professional. Searching only online means shoppers can miss some of the best alternatives. Shoppers who limit themselves to only looking at real estate Web sites will overlook some very good properties, possibly one that is perfect for them, and they won't get up-to-the minute information. Lookout for fake listings. People trying to collect page views so they can pump up their advertising returns can waste the time of real home shoppers. Using a professional to vet properties before...

Series - What Is So Great About Living In San Diego? This Episode -  Fresh Air!!! The other day I did this video because of a couple of stories I had read about how bad air pollution really is for our health.  It contributes (or maybe even causes) heart disease, asthma, brain problems and other nasty health concerns.  In addition to those stories, I read how San Diego has the lowest ozone pollution since they began testing for that fifty years ago. Why is our air so good?  Well, there are several reasons.  One is our lack of heavy industry.  No refineries, coal stacks or heavy manufacturing.  Our main industries are high tech, bio tech, health, education, tourism and resorts, military and defense contractors. Another reason for the good clean air is the wonderful ocean breezes.  The air...

Coronado, CA Exquisite NEW Waterfront Luxury Home With Seller Financing   Several days ago we attended an event for Real Estate Professionals. The party was put on by a very upscale real estate magazine and was held at a truly gorgeous, NEW, waterfront Santa Barbara style estate. Perfectly situated right on the San Diego Bay in the lovely City of Coronado the home offers spectacular views of the Bay and the beautiful San Diego skyline. We all know the most important three words in real estate are location, location, location and this fine residence certainly has that. But it also has so much more. I will list some of the wonderful, top of the line amenities but did want to point out the seller of this home is offering Seller Financing. This type of mortgage option is becoming increasing...
