I love seeing all these different design styles...  isn't it nice how new windows seem to make a difference?. The 203k loan program is making a difference in all neighborhoods as it should. If you have a home that needs some sprucing up then the FHA 203k loan program may be just what you need. I this case Tai Tu of Bank of America was the lead. Tai has been doing 203k loans for a while and right now they have the best rates in town for this product.

Lafayette and Orinda are adjacent communities that successfully provide a wonderful small-town atmosphere, the best schools in the region, and close proximity to world-class dining, cultural activities, and sporting events (including the 2010 World Series champion San Francisco Giants!).  The best wines in the world are made less than an hour away in beautiful Napa Valley.  Getting to and from Oakland and San Francisco is easy by car or on Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART).  Lafayette and Orinda are perfectly located to enjoy everything the Bay Area has to offer.
