Monrovia, CA Real Estate News

I will put a disclaimer on this post. We all know I am a Mortgage Consultant and see things from this side of the business. Now down to business. Rates - Rates are currently in the low 5% at historic lows. We are being pushed into lower rates thanks to the government "Federal Reserve MBS Purchase Program" of the $500 billion they are to buy so far $160 Billion have been used. In other words they have bought the lower end of the rates and once the money is done expect rates to go up. The treasury department is also issuing new bonds and with all that debt out there our rates are bound to go up. All in all the indications are the rates will increase by mid year. Tax Credit- Let me explain in very simple language "You get $8,000 when you buy a house" My last post should have explained this...

Homeowners, borrowers : ... here is the not so good news,....would be Sellers &  Buyers, here is an opportunity , please call me, ...... Real time Info from a number of Asset Managers and the statistics that they shared on loans that havebeen modified were pretty staggering. Fully 85%+ of all loans modified in the first six months of this yearhave fallen back into delinquent status. The driving force appears to be the fact that even though themortgage balances and interest rates have been reduced, continuing declines in property values havepulled borrowers back into negative equity positions. The general consensus is that we will see a dramaticincrease in short sales and a sharp decline in REO listings next year. John Vostenak, Broker http://www.johnvostenak.com CENTUTRY 21 Ludecke Inc.

Monrovia Real Estate Market & Economic &  Neighborhood Report from John Vostenak, your Monrovia Broker.The last year of 2006 Monrovia, the All American City, had the best appreciation from all cities in San Gabriel Valley. This years of 2007 it lags behind Arcadia, which bounced back from a lost of the most value in the last year.The outlook is gloomy, as the whole market in Real Estate in Southern California. However Monrovia will not be on the loosing team at the end , since it has an affluent citizenry building larger new homes, and enlarging existing homes. Homes are mostly Craftsmen style houses and estates within the city limits. Almost exclusively the largest homes are built at North of Foothill Blvd. areas.Monrovia is superficially divided and rated in to several desirability ar...
