Day in the life of Downtown San Diego Real Estate Agent Wesley Guest

What is a typical day really like in real estate? I thought I’d spend the day with you and show you my typical day as a busy real estate agent in San Diego. I start off by leaving my office in Downtown San Diego and visiting my listing in Torrey Highlands (1:06) and then a quick trip south to Pacific Beach to visit my Riviera Drive listing for sale (3:35). After that, a quick, lunch break (6:19), meet up with the dogs (5:25), and some late afternoon calls / prospecting (6:40).

Real estate is a great job but it’s really nothing like what many TV shows are produced to be such as Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing. I think HGTV’s Hunters is more realistic but still not a great view into a typical day for a real estate agent.

A Walk Through Petco Park in Downtown San Diego

Pictures do tell a thousand words. I spent yesterday afternoon at one of Downtown San Diego’s most popular attractions and home to the San Diego Padres, Petco Park. The Padres were playing away so it was an especially good opportunity to take a few superb pictures to share with everyone. As residents of East Village and Downtown San Diego, we are so lucky to have a Major League Baseball team in town to cheer on and enjoy the baseball season. Padre games are a huge bonus for Downtown residents and visitors. I highly recommend checking out a game. For seat recommendations or which days to go, contact me. I know the ball park and season inside and out.

San Diego Real Estate Market Report and Stats for November 2014

Thinking of buying or selling a home?.  Maybe you already own real estate and are curious what’s happening in the market?  These are the figures for San Diego and several micro San Diego real estate markets including Downtown, Pacific Beach, San Elijo Hills, and Mira Mesa you are looking for.  This is real deal information and statistics for what is happening right now.  Most other public data and “news” stories about the market follow the Case Schiller index and are already 2 months old (There is a two-month lag time in the data reported).  Old news is now news in real estate.

The best argument I have heard for why it’s a good time to buy real estate:  Mortgage interest rates are still a historical lows, home prices have reached a stable and sustainable level, and rental rates continue to climb and outpace home appreciation levels (rents are expected to climb 19% over the next couple years!).   A mortgage payment on a home will be cheaper in most cases than renting a home in San Diego.  Also, don’t forget that unlike stocks, bonds, and other investment entities and options, you get added utility from being able to live in your investment.  You gotta live somewhere right?  I’d like to see you move into your shares of Microsoft or Apple.  Maybe the iHome?  Sorry, a little real estate agent humor.

HOW TO BUY A SAN DIEGO HOME OR CONDOMINIUM

 

Short Sale Seasoning Requirements Will Change on August 16th, 2014

Short sale seasoning requirements will change on August 16th, 2014. You might be thinking what does this mean exactly and how long do I have to wait before I can get a new mortgage after a short sale in San Diego?

Current seasoning periods for short sales under most conventional loan programs are:

  • 7 years with less than 10% down payment.
  • 4 years with between 10% – 19.99% down payment.
  • 2 Years with 20% or more down payment.

This will change on August 16th, 2014. The new seasoning guidelines for conventional short sales are:

  • 7 years with less than 10% down.
  • 4 years with 10% down payment or more (A 2 year seasoning requirement is allowed if you can document extenuating circumstances that caused the short sale. A declining market is not considered a hardship).

So what does this mean? This means that if you sold San Diego real estate as a short sale recently, you have to wait 4 years before you can get a new mortgage if you managed to save 10% for a down payment or more. You will have to wait 7 years if you have less than a 10% down payment.

SEARCH SAN DIEGO REAL ESTATE LIKE A PRO!

Why the change from Fannie Mae? It lowers the overall risk to the mortgage portfolio’s Fannie Mae holds although the side effect will be less borrowers and buyers in the real estate market. The magnitude of this effect will soon be demonstrated.

Are there any alternative options to get around the 4 year or 7 year seasoning requirement? There will be many niche lenders and portfolio investors looking to cash in on this new restriction from Fannie Mae. There will be options but with additional risk to any investor comes higher cost and usually rates to the borrower. Whether or not the products will make sense will be decision that must be made on an individual and unique basis.
