Buying a home is exciting. There are many great homes available in the San Diego area - specifically in Rancho Santa Fe and La Jolla. Whether it's brand new, or just new to you, buying a home is a time for big dreams, plans and goals for the future. It's also a time for big mortgage payments and the responsibility that comes with them. Many buyers, when they are pre-approved for a loan, automatically go out and start looking for houses that are as expensive as they can possible buy. That doesn't really mean they can afford these houses, it just means their debt-to-income ratio was acceptable to the bank.
Fortunately, the trend of “buy as much as you can afford” is slowly changing. Ultimately, it's better to buy something that's slightly less than what…

It's no secret that buying or selling a La Jolla home or Rancho Santa Fe hom has gotten more difficult recently. That's largely because of the struggling economy, which led to the foreclosure crisis and the popping of the housing bubble. There have been a lot of changes that have taken place, too, and one of them deals with the appraisals that are done in La Jolla and Rancho Santa Fe area. In areas like La Jolla and Rancho Santa Fe, the high-end real estate market is not immune to lowered appraisal values that are keeping people from buying (and selling) homes.
In order to have a home financed, it has to appraise for at least the amount the buyer wishes to borrow. In many cases, it must appraise for more, because lenders generally only want to offer…

Buying a home in an upscale community place like Rancho Santa Fe or La Jolla seems like a dream come true, but it's becoming a nightmare for a lot of people. The real estate magazines say it's a buyer’s market, but many of them fail to mention that it's only a good market for a particular kind of buyer. If you want to buy and don't have good credit plus a healthy down payment, it may not be a “buyer's market” for you.
Instead, you may find that you've been shut out of purchasing your dream home in La Jolla or Rancho Santa Fe, right at a time where the prices have come down enough that you could afford to purchase in one of those beautiful areas. Many upscale buyers do not want to wait to see what prices do since they will be living in these…

Newly released figures show that the unemployment rate throughout the country is now at 9.8%. That's higher than it was in the previous month, and it spells problems for the real estate market if you're a seller or if you're just trying to stay in your home. San Diego isn't fairing any better than the rest of the country when it comes to people losing their jobs, and even places like La Jolla and Rancho Santa Fe are seeing more and more people who simply have to move because they can no longer afford the home they once easily paid for.
It's a difficult time in real estate, but all is not lost. Buyers who have good credit and a down payment are still able to purchase homes, even in high-end real estate markets like La Jolla and Rancho Santa Fe. Banks are…
