The University City Housing Market

Last month I spoke about homes “being gobbled up”. That is still the case and, in fact, prices are improving. That is great news for owners! Even with a qualified buyer, the trick is getting loans and adequate appraisals. Interest rates are so so low that the banks are backed up and slower than usual. With a seasoned agent (me) you can still get on-time closings but it takes some doing these days.

If you do want to sell, don’t worry, just get the right help (me). Now is certainly a great time to buy, sell or refinance. You can find me fastest on my cell, 858.775.1239 or send me an e-mail ktdunahoo@msn.com.

Buyers Pay More for Eco-Friendly Homes

As the costs to heat and then to cool your home continue to rise, homeowners are weighing the value of making the necessary adjustments.

“Green Homes” sell faster in today’s market. The major reason against them is the cost.

The major reason for doing them is two-fold: savings on your utility bills while you live in the home; and increased value to the buyer when you decide to sell your home.

According to the American Institute of Architect’s Home Design Survey, there are 7 eco-friendly changes which increase the value of your home in a Buyer’s eyes:

1. High-efficiency insulation
2. High-efficiency windows
3. Double- and triple- glazed windows
4. Tankless water heaters
5. Water conserving devices
6. Products aimed at improving indoor air quality
7. Renewable flooring products such as cork and bamboo

If you are considering making some green improvements to your home, start with one or two such as adding solar panels or changing your water heater. Then put a plan together, check to see if there are any Federal or State Tax Credits available, select an appropriate vendor and then enjoy the benefits of ‘going green’.  Looking for a green home, we can help!

4 Ways to Make your Home Safer

This summer, in addition to cleaning out the garage and planting the garden, consider these four items to keep your house safer from floods, fire and other unhappy occurrences. In combination, they will take less than four hours and cost under $100.00:

1. Check PLUMBING for leaks in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry rooms especially the hot water heater, toilets, sinks and refrigerator.

2. Inspect all ELECTRICAL cords in your home including the power strips and extension cords behind computer desks and televisions. Also take a moment to label your circuit breakers and where there are two or more appliances plugged into one outlet, think about using surge protectors.

3. Safeproof the GARAGE by putting maximum space between any gas-powered tools, portable gas tanks and paint from the furnace and the water heater.

4. Change BATTERIES in your smoke detectors and add FIRE EXTINGUISHERS in kitchen, garage and other relevant locations.

For further information, contact your insurance provider or your local real estate agent at www.411sandiegohomes.com.

Market Notes

The talk on the street is that we do not have enough homes on the market. It is certainly not what we predicted last year. As we approach summer, there will be more listings in UC but they sure are selling fast! Of the nineteen UC homes currently in escrow, thirteen of them sold in less than a week! It is not just UC with a low inventory of homes. Investors with cash are gobbling up the low-end homes and acing out “normal” well-qualified buyers. It is crazy out there and exciting too. Are you thinking of selling? Now is a great time. You can find me fastest on my cell, 858.775.1239 or send me an e-mail ktdunahoo@msn.com.

Does Selling at a Loss Give Me a Tax Deduction?

In one word, NO… The Internal Revenue Service’s Publication 523 states “A loss on the sale of your main home cannot be deducted.” Even if you reinvest the proceeds in another home, you still may not deduct the loss from your previous home.

Consult your tax accountant for details if you are considering selling your home for less than you bought it.

Renting Your Home for Summer and Winter Visitors

If you live in an area with special attractions like the Del Mar Racing Season in California or Maine’s Lobster Festival in Rockland or even one this year’s political conventions, and you have someplace you want to go, consider renting your home.

To determine how much to charge by day/week/month, look online at similar houses in your area as well as other high demand areas. You may also need to check on your city and state regulations on tourist taxes. According to the IRS Publications 527, you are allowed to rent your home tax-fee for up to 14 days a year. And finally, be sure to contact your insurer concerning the appropriate coverage.

It’s fun and is another nice way to meet interesting people from different parts of the country or the world!

Chinese Buyers for San Diego Property

Buying property in San Diego as a non-citizen could not be easier and with the current currency exchange giving many foreign money holders an advantage, San Diego has become a purchase destination for many who are looking for investment property and/or vacation homes especially if you are Chinese due to the great schools, plentiful Asian markets and restaurants, and amazing climate.

With luxury homes in premier neighborhoods near the oceans of La Jolla and Del Mar as low as $1,000,000 and up, and brand new homes with new schools and neighborhoods such as Carmel Valley, 4S Ranch and Del Sur around $500,000 and up, the selection is wide.

San Diego is also a great choice due to it’s safe and secure processes as all transactions are subject to US contract law and are handled by neutral third party escrow companies who oversee all aspects of the transaction between seller and buyer. With the help of technology, many of my clients only visit the US once or even not all during a transaction to purchase a home.

As a mandarin speaking real estate agent and Certified Relocation Specialist for Coldwell Banker, I have assisted not only Chinese buyers but also many other ethnicities with relocation and investing in San Diego. If qualified, a foreign non-citizen buyer can obtain an Investment Visa (EB-5) which can lead to a citizenship. I can help with visa, tax issues, immigration and other questions or concerns you may have. If you do not have your own legal counsel in the US, I can refer you to attorneys I have worked with in the past and have provided excellent service to my clients.
