How Oil Prices Affect the San Diego Housing Market

posted on January 27th, 2015 | filed under: Buying Strategies, For Sale, Loving the Lifestyle, Market Update, Successful Selling, Uncategorized

gas pricesHow Oil Prices Affect the San Diego Housing Market

Most of us rejoice when the prices at the pump go down. To us, it means freed-up cash in our personal economy. When we’re consider buying or selling a home, however, the price at the pump can impact our bottom line in ways we don’t realize.

Local economy

When the local economy relies on income from crude oil sales, a drastic reduction in prices can depress the local market. So in places like Houston or the Canadian Province of Alberta, for example, a dip in the price of crude oil could mean fewer people moving into the area so sales to newcomers may slow down. Or, it could mean that folks whose income relies on the oil industry may decide not to move into that bigger home until things stabilize.

Conversely, communities that rely on delivery of good from other areas might see an improvement in their local economy. If your city relies on the trucking or train industries, lower prices on fuel can mean more money freed up to spend on housing. Economies that depend on air travel should also see an uptick since lower fuel prices means lower cost air travel.

Another Successful Sale | The Anderson Family

posted on October 13th, 2014 | filed under: Business Referral, Buying Strategies, Cleint Testimonial, Good People, Loving the Lifestyle, Oceanside, Successful Selling

Anderons

We absolutely love our new home!  Jeff came highly recommended by our friend Shawn Marshall, a past client of Jeff’s and also a member of Jeff’s monthly business networking group.  After meeting with Jeff we spent the better part of a year searching for a house, as we had just had a baby and our wants and needs were constantly changing.  Jeff was great through all of this.  His experience and insights were invaluable, not to mention we had fun chatting with him during showings.

Once we found our dream home we were amazed at the communication and systems Jeff has in place that guided us through the escrow process.  We were supported every step of the way and Jeff’s assistant, Jennifer kept us informed and on track until to the day we moved in.

Even after the close of escrow, Jeff and his team were there for us.  We wanted to build a custom entertainment center and Jeff referred a carpenter, Chris Walsh, from his networking group.  Chris built exactly what we wanted and it is beautiful!  You must work with Jeff and his team if you are looking to buy, sell, or update your home.

Patagonia Cardiff | FREE Event!

posted on August 18th, 2014 | filed under: Cardiff, Good People, Local Community Events, Loving the Lifestyle

423961_10150658223019559_91725514_nPatagonia Cardiff-by-the-Sea is having a screening of never-before-seen footage from surfing icon George Greenough.

Filmmaker and innovative board designer George Greenough was a pioneer in the art of surf cinematography—the first to capture a surfer’s point of view from inside the tube. He recently discovered, edited and narrated 20 minutes of lost 16-mm wave-riding footage from the late 1960s. Come see the footage and share some food and drinks.

Surfer Devon Howard will host the evening, which will begin with a slide show followed by the screening. An event poster designed by Leo Basica will be sold—all proceeds will benefit a local environmental nonprofit. Grab dinner from the Green Truck food truck and enjoy brews from The Lost Abbey.

This is a free event.
