Adobe Bluffs Elementary School Celebrates Year of the Pig

Mandarin Immersion and Foreign Language School

No one in Poway Unified rings in the Lunar New Year quite like Adobe Bluffs Elementary, home of the District’s first Mandarin Immersion and Foreign Language in Elementary School programs. Dignitaries from across San Diego County attended the celebration, which included dancing, singing, and plays done by students (and staff) all in Chinese.

The school is now has an Immersion Kinder program. If you want to learn more about the program, here’s the video.

If you or someone you know that would like to move to the Adobe Bluffs Elementary area, let me know. I just not a Realtor in the Rancho Penasquitos area, but also I am also a parent of an Adobe Bluffs student. I can give you all the insights of the school, the other schools in the area and the community.

Matthew’s 2019 Economic and Housing Forecast

Matthew’s Magic Ball – 2019 Economic and Housing Forecast 

I thought this was important enough to repost. This is from Windermere’s Chief Economist – Matthew Garnder.

2019 Economic and Housing Forecast 
By Matthew Gardner, Chief Economist, Windermere Real Estate 

What a year it has been for both for the U.S. economy and the national housing market. After several years of above-average economic and home price growth, 2018 marked the start of a slowdown in the residential real estate market. As the year comes to a close, it’s time for me to dust off my crystal ball to see what we can expect in 2019.

The U.S. Economy

Despite the turbulence that the ongoing trade wars with China are causing, I still expect the U.S. economy to have one more year of relatively solid growth before we likely enter a recession in 2020. Yes, it’s the dreaded “R” word, but before you panic, there are some things to bear in mind.

Firstly, any cyclical downturn will not be driven by housing. Although it is almost impossible to predict exactly what will be the “straw that breaks the camel’s back”, I believe it will likely be caused by one of the following three things: an ongoing trade war, the Federal Reserve raising interest rates too quickly, or excessive corporate debt levels. That said, we still have another year of solid growth ahead of us, so I think it’s more important to focus on 2019 for now.

The U.S. Housing Market

Existing Home Sales
This paper is being written well before the year-end numbers come out, but I expect 2018 home sales will be about 3.5% lower than the prior year. Sales started to slow last spring as we breached affordability limits and more homes came on the market. In 2019, I anticipate that home sales will rebound modestly and rise by 1.9% to a little over 5.4 million units.

Existing Home Prices
We will likely end 2018 with a median home price of about $260,000 – up 5.4% from 2017. In 2019 I expect prices to continue rising, but at a slower rate as we move toward a more balanced housing market. I’m forecasting the median home price to increase by 4.4% as rising mortgage rates continue to act as a headwind to home price growth.

New Home Sales
In a somewhat similar manner to existing home sales, new home sales started to slow in the spring of 2018, but the overall trend has been positive since 2011. I expect that to continue in 2019 with sales increasing by 6.9% to 695,000 units – the highest level seen since 2007.

That being said, the level of new construction remains well below the long-term average. Builders continue to struggle with land, labor, and material costs, and this is an issue that is not likely to be solved in 2019. Furthermore, these constraints are forcing developers to primarily build higher-priced homes, which does little to meet the substantial demand by first-time buyers.

Mortgage Rates
In last year’s forecast I suggested that 5% interest rates would be a 2019 story, not a 2018 story. This prediction has proven accurate with the average 30-year conforming rates measured at 4.87% in November, and highly unlikely to breach the 5% barrier before the end of the year.

In 2019, I expect interest rates to continue trending higher, but we may see periods of modest contraction or levelling. We will likely end the year with the 30-year fixed rate at around 5.7%, which means that 6% interest rates are more apt to be a 2020 story.

I also believe that non-conforming (or jumbo) rates will remain remarkably competitive. Banks appear to be comfortable with the risk and ultimately, the return, that this product offers, so expect jumbo loan yields to track conforming loans quite closely.

Conclusions
There are still voices out there that seem to suggest the housing market is headed for calamity and that another housing bubble is forming, or in some cases, is already deflating.  In all the data that I review, I just don’t see this happening. Credit quality for new mortgage holders remains very high and the median down payment (as a percentage of home price) is at its highest level since 2004.

That is not to say that there aren’t several markets around the country that are overpriced, but just because a market is overvalued, does not mean that a bubble is in place. It simply means that forward price growth in these markets will be lower to allow income levels to rise sufficiently.

Finally, if there is a big story for 2019, I believe it will be the ongoing resurgence of first-time buyers. While these buyers face challenges regarding student debt and the ability to save for a down payment, they are definitely on the comeback and likely to purchase more homes next year than any other buyer demographic.

 

If you or someone you know is ready to buy a new home in 2019, give me a call or email. I would be happy to show you my superior services and get you into your dream home. Nancy Bergman, Windermere Homes and Estates – Rancho Bernardo, DRE Lic. #01893550

NO PET LEFT BEHIND: EVACUATION PLANS WITH YOUR PETS

NO PET LEFT BEHIND: EVACUATION PLANS WITH YOUR PETS

Evacuated with your pets…

As the California wildfires rage on, and thousand of people are fleeing some without their pets. It’s heartbreaking to me since my cats are literally apart of our family.
Izzy and Storm are like my children’s kids. They need to know almost every minute where they are. If we had to evacuate, we wouldn’t leave until we had them. Yet, sometimes they are scared just like us.
Therefore, it best to have an evacuation plan with your pets in consideration.

An evacuation plan is a necessity for every home, especially if you live in an area where fires, earthquakes, hurricanes, flooding, and other disasters are a possibility. Many homeowners create evacuation plans for their homes and practice them with their kids, but far fewer have considered one for their pets. Take these steps to add your pets to your evacuation plan.

Assign pet evacuation to an adult. Everyone should know how to act during an evacuation, and that includes assigning one parent or adult to the pets. This allows the other parent and the children to focus on their part of the evacuation plan, so there’s no confusion during a high-stress moment when time is of the essence.

Keep evacuation maps and pet carriers readily accessible. If you need to evacuate, you should know exactly where every important item is. If you pets require carriers, keep them in a place that you can access easily.

Practice your plan. Include your pets in your home evacuation drills. It’ll help you see how they will respond and make changes to your plan if necessary. Getting your dog out of a window may not be as simple as you think!

Be prepared in case you get separated from your pets. No matter how much you drill your evacuation plan, it’s possible that a dog or cat will run off while you’re focusing on keeping your family safe. A microchip or a GPS-compatible tag can help you find your pets once it’s safe to return to the area.

Remember to stay safe during these Santa Ana winds.

Helpful Halloween Safety Tips

Helpful Halloween Safety Tips

Enjoy Halloween but Be Save

Have a Safe & Happy Halloween! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. It is when the neighborhood comes together and families enjoy catching up.
It can also be a bit scary for children. So, here are some safety tips to stay safe on this fun holiday.

1.Tell children who will be in your care to watch out for cars and traffic. Children get so excited with the activity of Halloween that sometimes they forget the basics.

2.Tell children who will be in your care not to eat any candy until they get home and a parent has inspected it. It’s sad that this needs to be said, however safety needs to be at top priority at all times.

3.Tell children who will be in your care to not enter anyone’s house. Once again, safety needs to be a top priority at all times. If there’s a haunted house or a maze of some sort, the Guardian should accompany the child for safety and security purposes.

4. Tell children who will be in your care not to run off where they can’t be seen. Children should always be in plain view of their Guardian and not too far ahead where the Guardian is unable to react to any type of incident.

5. Tell children who will be in your care to always be aware of their surroundings. It’s never too early to teach safety and prevention methods. Halloween is a fun and exciting Holiday, but the message to children should always be safety first!

Once again, have a Safe & Happy Halloween. If you ever need any sort of real estate advice, I am just a phone call away. I am never too busy for referrals especially from family and friends.
Happy Halloween!!!

Home Improvement Envy?

Do You Have Home Improvement Envy?

You’re Not Alone Peeking over fence Have you found yourself longingly peering into the yard next door to check out their new water feature only to start drawing up the blueprints for your own a week later?

 

If you answered yes, turns out you’re just one of the many who experience jealousy—and a little competitive drive—over others’ home improvement projects.

In fact, a recent survey from The Home Depot conducted by Wakefield Research not only revealed what home improvement projects are most popular, but the motivation behind the projects, as well. Here are some of the findings: More than half of respondents feel the urge to improve the appearance of their homes when they see another home improvement project. From a landscape refresh with new perennials or an herb garden, to a patio overhaul with the latest grill and patio set, there’s no inspiration quite like competition.

Millennials are particularly home-conscious and competitive, with 70 percent admitting to feeling this pressure and nearly 50 percent responding to it by completing a home improvement project in response. Parents tend to feel the pull more than non-parents—whether that means installing a new fence and deck in the backyard or taking their spring cleaning one step further. Millennials are more likely than baby boomers to buy new furniture or refresh their décor.

Looking for a new home in San Diego – Rancho Penasquitos (San Diego, CA 92129) , Rancho Bernardo (San Diego 92128 and 92127), Poway (92064), Escondido or surrounding areas? Let’s chat. I can get you the latest and off market deals around.

Homebuyers Can Save Thousands in the Off-Season

Worth the Wait:

Homebuyers Can Save Thousands In the Off-Season Timing Is everything…

Even in Real Estate.

Homebuyers in the nation’s densest metro areas could save thousands by purchasing a home in the off-season, according to a new analysis by NerdWallet. Sale prices fall an average of approximately 3 percent, or by $8,300 on a median-priced home, September through November, the analysis found.

Sale prices, as well, tend to keep tracking downward through January and February. NerdWallet’s analysis, which dug into housing activity from the last two years as reported by realtor.com®, recognized an overall average declining trend of 8.45 percent, identifying January as the month with the most metros experiencing the lowest sale prices. The most considerable drop-offs from summer (June through August) to fall were in three distinct markets: Hartford-West Hartford-East Hartford, Conn., Cleveland-Elyria, Ohio, and Birmingham-Hoover, Ala., according to the analysis. Sale prices in each fell around 8 percent, or by $20,417, $11,450 and $13,386, respectively. In context, the median listing price in September is projected to be $250,000, a new high for the month, realtor.com recently reported. Listing price, however, often differs from sale price—of the 50 metro areas NerdWallet analyzed, the difference between the median listing price and median sale price averaged roughly $17,000 from September to November.

Given these findings, homebuyers this fall and winter can expect to have an advantage over sellers, even with record list prices. Buyers in fall may also have leverage in terms of selection. Realtor.com forecasted the median age of listings in September at 77 days, five days more than in August. With listings longer on the market (and less buyers to compete with), those purchasing past the peak summer season could have the upper hand in negotiations. Mortgage interest rates, additionally, remain low—though the Federal Reserve hinted at a benchmark rate hike this December. Homebuyers, for now, still have the opportunity to secure a low rate. Overall, these signs—and now, significant savings—point to an off-season in favor of homebuyers.Reposted from: http://blog.rismedia.com/2016/worth-the-wait-homebuyers-save-thousands-in-the-off-season/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email

Do you believe this is true? What are your thoughts? Personally, I have always purchased property from October – January. This is the when the serious buyer come out. They are ready. Sellers are also ready. Sellers are not “testing” the market in the Fall / Winter months. They need to make a move and sell.

Are you ready to make a deal? So am I… Let’s chat.
