Bay Area Real Estate: Do you agree with principal reductions?

  
  
  

Do you favor principal reductions, or are you against this government real estate "bailout"?  Recent data shows that the real estate market is showing positive signs of coming back, however, some say that the slightest down trend in any area of real estate could possibly cause the market to tank again.  And if principal reductions are going to keep homeowners from losing their homes, then this will help keep foreclosure statistics from climbing back up.  The question is, at what cost?

Homes for sale in the Bay Area, but with 40% wealth loss is now a good time to buy?

  
  
  

Homes for sale in the Bay Area, but with Americans losing 40% of their wealth, is now a good time to buy?

 

A few weeks ago, the LA Times as well as every other news outlet reported that the typical American familiy lost an average of 40% of their wealth from 2007 to 2010, according to a Federal Reserve report.  Were you hit by this fiscal loss?  I know I was, and that average percentage just about hit it on target.  I have a few friends who also have lost just as much, some more, some less.  Never the less, it put us all in the same boat, we all have lost wealth in these last few years. But who hasn't?  The better question may be, what should we do from here?

Bay Area Real Estate: Is that kitchen remodel really worth it?

Are you trying to increase the value of your home by remodeling the kitchen? Do you think you are going to get equal or more return on investment for that complete remodel of your kitchen?  During the housing boom of the early to mid 2000's, remodeling of the kitchen was on the top of the list of both buyers and sellers of homes for sale. A return on investment used to be well worth the money and time invested.  This may not be the case anymore.

Bay Area Real Estate: Which is better, buying or renting property?  We have all been there.  Pondering this question every time we are about to move from apartment to apartment, or from house to house.  If you are a renter, then the question is, if you would be better off purchasing a home.  And if you're a property owner, you may be thinking to yourself if renting would be the better option when you start packing those bags and start looking for new homes in the Bay Area.

 

Bay Area Real Estate: Location, location.... location?

  
  
  

Is location really that important when looking for homes for sale or a place to rent?  Is the location of your property within the proximity of the good schools in the neighboehood? Are you willing to pay more for good location? Like anything else, good location is in the eyes of the beholder.  One person's ordinary things can be another man's treasure!
