Buying a Costa Mesa Fixer Upper  Costa Mesa Bank Owned Homes: Buying Opportunity “Fixers” Reward Patience, Prudence, and Realism   These days the words “bank owned homes” have become practically synonymous with a single word: “opportunity.”  With prices and mortgage rates this low, first time home buyers, investors and seasoned property owners alike are looking at a raft of buying options unlike any Costa Mesa has seen in a very long time.    That option of buying a bank owned home has certainly opened a viable route for those looking to own a home at the fraction of what it cost just a few years ago.

Total Eclipse of the Heart Sun - Speechless Sundays     Today, we were excited to experience a solar eclipse.  Here in Costa Mesa, the sun was approximately 78% covered by the moon.  There were areas that were 85%, and still ours was amazing. Unfortunately, the marine layer moved in about 10 minutes before the biggest part of the eclipse.  Even so, the kids and the adults found it an exciting experience.

Kids and Animals Just Delight Each Other - Speechless Sundays   These two seem to be communicating with each other just fine, or maybe my son is communicating and the donkey simply wants to get away.  It seems that they are both eyeing each other; all while not looking directly at each other.

  March 14, 2012 La Jolla, CA---The Southland housing market posted the highest number of February home sales in five years as record levels of investor and cash buyers helped spur robust activity under $300,000. The median price paid for homes across the six-county region inched up from January but dropped below the year-earlier level for the 12th consecutive month, a real estate information service reported. A total of 15,573 new and resale houses and condos sold in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, Ventura, San Bernardino and Orange counties last month. That was up 7.2 percent from 14,523 in January, and up 8.4 percent from 14,369 in February 2011, according to San Diego-based DataQuick. The increase in sales between January and February was larger than usual. On average, sales have...
