  • Logan Heights

    May 16, 16 • CarMama • Home BuyersNo CommentsRead More »

    I want to let you in on a little secret….one of the oldest areas in San Diego with one of the best locations is about to get the credit it deserves…. ! For years now, people have either not heard of Logan Heights or found it less than desirable in terms of real estate. And in my opinion, all of that is about to change. Situated in a prime location near downtown and close to the Coronado Bridge, the area of Logan Heights and Barrio Logan is finding itself morphing into the cool, underground area to grab a bite to eat and experience some of San Diego’s most vibrant culture. With places like Border X Brewing and Salud to grab local craft beer and some of the best tacos in town, this is definitely an area you should check out. And while home prices are steadily on the uptick, it’s still one of the more affordable areas, although it’s my bet, it won’t last long. There are a few homes currently for sale in the hopper, and if you are curious to know more about them, email me at: Enjoy the area while it’s still relatively unknown! -Carmen Harris, Real Estate Consultant

  • I’m A Home Buyer…Where Are All The Homes?

    If you’ve been even curious about buying a home, you may have notice there has not been much inventory in San Diego the last few months. This is typically for the winter season, as the holidays and New Years tend to cause a slow down in the market. However, things are creeping up now that we are heading into Spring. The good news is inventory is up, the bad news is that more buyer’s will be flooding the market as well. And the more buyer’s out there, the more competition which can drive home prices up. As the trend tends to go, once we hit summer, it’s a frenzy for the available homes out there. So what does that mean for you today? Now is the time to buy! If you can get yourself into a home before summer, you’ll be in a great position to find the right home for the right price. Need help? Contact me at: Happy House Hunting!

  • What’s The Point Of The Final Walk Through?

    Oct 19, 15 • CarMama • First Time Home Buyers, Home BuyersNo CommentsRead More »

    Many of my clients have asked me why we do a final walk through if we already had the home inspection so I want to let others out there know that these two steps of the home buying process are different and equally important. While the home inspection is performed by a licensed specialist and checks out the big 5: Roof, Foundation, Plumbing, Electrical, and Appliances, the final walk through is performed by the clients and the agent and is a visually inspection of the property done just before the close of escrow. Here’s what you need to know for your final walk-through: A final walk-through isn’t a home inspection. You’ve already done that by now (or should have). Take your contract with you. You might need to refer to it while on site. In many markets, the buyers and sellers never actually meet in person. But if everyone is agreeable to the idea, perform the final walk-through in the seller’s presence. He or she knows the home better than anyone else and should be able to answer your questions and provide some color on the history of the home. If the home is vacant, it’s even more important to do a final walk-through. Since your last visit, for instance, someone might have left a faucet dripping, inadvertently causing water damage. Take along a checklist of things to do during the final walk-through,

  • Vintage Flea Market

    I came across something new that I haven’t blogged about before and I’m excited for you vintage lovers out there! Coming at the end of this month, on June 28th, 2015 is the Vintage Flea Market San Diego. According to the website, “The San Diego Vintage Flea Market is a great way for folks to sell and purchase interesting vintage or vintage-inspired treasures. All vintage pieces are true to the era of turn of the century to midcentury modern. Our vendors offer home furnishings, bric-a-brac, clothing, and so much more – vintage-inspired items, pin-up/rockabilly style clothing and accessories, tiki infused items along with vintage-inspired music promotion. It’s all here at the San Diego Vintage Flea Market!” “To many, the term “vintage” is a wide range of definitions. It could be anything older than 20 years. To some if could be anything prior to the Midcentury Modern era. And to others, there are different terms coined that represent the vintage era, such as antique and retro. Vintage is your own take on it and how you would like to label it. The San Diego Vintage Flea Market is such a great way to meet other Vintage Enthusiasts such as yourself. Every one of the vendors that joins the market brings their own knowledge in such a wide spectrum to the vintage community. All are very welcoming to any questions you might have
