ScottSold in 4 Days for $6000 More Than Asking Price – SOLD  4/24/2013 For $625,000

Carlsbad – I have known Jeff for over 25 years. I just recently used him to list and sell our home and couldn’t be happier with his service and professionalism. Jeff and his team give his clients the information and guidance that they need. At the same time, he will fight for his clients whenever necessary and always looks out for their best interests. Jeff and his team are always available to answer questions and respond to clients promptly. I was very pleased with the job Jeff and his team did and how they got our sale completed in a very short time frame. They did an outstanding job and would highly recommend Jeff DeChamplain to anyone considering buying or selling a home in the San Diego area!   – Scott Lord

An article by Samuel Scott Financial Group.

As the housing market makes it’s “comeback” , potential home owners are re-evaluating their financial abilities in the marketplace once again. According to real estate research site, Trulia, buying is still financially better than renting in the top 100 major metro areas.

With home prices seeing steady rise, 7% in the last year, the sellers market is still heating up while rentals only rose about 3.2%. The good news for buyers is with Trulia’s data, obtaining a still low mortgage rate to buy is an average 44% cheaper than renting, down only slightly from the 46% of 2012.

The Trulia averages are with an assumed mortgage rate of 3.5% in the 25% tax bracket and will stay in their home for 7 years. For accuracy, the properties compared were identical and the averages were made with with maintenance, insurance and taxes being factored in. Also taken into account were price, rent appreciation and inflation as well as closing costs, security deposits and other one time costs.
