 Join Us At The LighthouseOyster Bar & Grill Wed, April 27th 11-1 After previewing a lovely Oceanside Row House that we hope to be closing on May 1st, Janis and I decided to take a nice walk over to the Lighthouse Oyster Bar and Grill which is only about a mile walk, mostly down the beautiful San Luis Rey bike and hiking trail, to the Oceanside Harbor. Upon our arrival and having worked up an insatiable appetite and thirst we were immediately seated by a very accommodating hostess with an infectious smile outside on the upstairs deck overlooking the beautiful Oceanside Harbor Village. The New England and Manhattan Clam Chowder combo along with a nice cool glass of Chard was some of the best we've ever had this side of Boston.  It was a typical beautiful and pristine North San Diego Coas...

 Oceanside CA- Spring is Here, Go Ahead List Your Home It's springtime in SoCal and the weather has been great for outdoor activity of all kinds, it's also a great time to list your home for sale if you are planning a move this summer.  Yes, people are outside in the sunshine, playing, working, dining out and many are searching for a home now rather then wait for the summer crowds.  Life  gets going in advance these days.Interest rates are still low, the smart home buyer starts to shop early to take advantage of less buyers to compete with, the idea of knowing and not worrying about the buying process in the busy summer months start to head out looking now! As a savvy seller, nows a good time to drop your fishing line in the water so to speak and hook a big one before they are gone. Feb...

Oceanside Harbor Parade of Lights is Saturday December 12, 2015 Another fun thing to do during the holidays in our area is to see the Oceanside Harbor Parade of Lights. The Oceanside Harbor Parade of Lights will feature all sorts of boats, kayaks and dinghys, all dressed up for the holidays, and perhaps along with some Santas on a few boats.  Sponsored by the Oceanside Yacht Club, this colorful event takes place Saturday December 12, from 7 – 9 pm.  There are plenty of places to watch around the marina/harbor, including the concrete pathway, and assorted restaurants like my favorite, the Lighthouse Oyster Bar (great views year-round of the marina and sunsets from their upstairs location). I’ve read that the area by the fishing dock and the police station is an excellent place for viewin...

   Are There Really More Distressed   Properties Rearing Their Ugly Heads?     Is it my imagination or are there really more distressed properties rearing their ugly heads once again in the San Diego market? Could it possibly be time once again to start reving up the short sale and foreclosure fix and flip and buy and hold engine again?   I've been noticing some price reductions and a faint increase in foreclosure and short sale activity lately. In fact I've just bid on two of them and I'm about ready to bid on a couple more.   But yet to hear most RE professionals talk you'd think we're still in a sellers market buying frenzy. Kinda reminds me of the ole Mike Ferry Days whence when someone asked a RE Pro how biz was they would always reply    F A N T A S T I C!!!   Isn't time to start...

Custom real estate website design for Jenni Davies in Maryland. We started in a completely different direction to end up with a brand that matches Jenni's fun personality. Using IDX Broker searches, there are hundreds of links tightly organized so the visitor does not get lost. The school page is one of my favorites, along with a blog page completely unique. Hope you like it, this has been a really fun design.www.HotMarylandHomes.com

Oceanside, like much of San Diego County, has seen the real estate market returning to normal. Detached home prices were mostly flat year over year checking in around $475,000 while attached home prices did go up about 7% in the past year to $270,000. Inventory remains low at about 2 months. Volume of home sales is up significantly(25%) compared to a year ago.As more homes now have equity, sellers can put them up for sale which should help the volume going forward. And the number of short sales and foreclosure are less than 10% of sales. Homes are still selling quickly(less than 3 weeks) but with increasing inventory through the rest of the year, I do not expect to see bidding wars.Here's a chart showing the Oceanside housing market median sales price for detached homes over the past ye...
