How to close my renovation loan fast...I used to get asked this allot and not so much any more. Why is that? Lenders are always saying 45-60 days to close a renovation loan then many are taking 60-120. This is unacceptable by anyone in the business.Lets look at a couple of those that say 45-60 and longer.1) The order comes in and the uninformed lender starts gathering the information they need to get the loan in process.2) Remember they already prequaled the borrower before the offer was submitted.3) Now they push for their part of the loan process, gathering the necessary info to close the loan...4) Get a contractor bid or two.5) Once they have their stuff all together they call the consultant...6) Now for the next five to ten days the consultant is harassed quite often pushing for the...

Here are the average home prices & price changes (rounded) for many communities in Santa Cruz County - including the Santa Cruz Mountains, from San Lorenzo Valley home prices to Scotts Valley real estate and home prices in the Los Gatos Mountains.On average, single family residence prices in Santa Cruz County rose about 10% during the first quarter over the last quarter of 2015.  As you can see in the above chart, each micro-zone is moving in a different direction.   Scotts Valley had an unusually high number of million dollar plus sales in the first quarter; I expect that 20% quarterly increase to mellow as this year progresses.   During the first quarter, Brookdale only had one sale – a foreclosed home.     Ben Lomond also got off to a very slow start during the first quarter of 2016,...

Scotts Valley Real Estate Market - August 2014    & San Lorenzo Valley Real Estate Market - August 2014 The Mercury News reports the housing market is cooling off across the San Francisco Bay Area, where median sales prices rose 10% year over year.*     I consider this as a good sign, as prices have already recovered to their pre-2007 level in several counties.  Alameda is about even, but Santa Clara and San Mateo have appreciated beyond the last peak.   Continued price appreciation would be unsustainable as housing gets too expensive for the entry level buyer.    It’s the first time buyer that allows would-be move-up buyers to sell their homes and reinvest into homes that better suit their needs.   Spoiler alert – look at the charts below to see a possible upcoming change in the Scotts...
