A Beautiful Day in Southern California!!

What a great day to be living at the Beach or on the Golf Course!! I just came back from a wonderful rollerblade at the beach and am feeling very “energized”!

If you have been sitting on the fence waiting to buy….it is time to “hop off” and take advantage of the deals that are out there. I just received and email from a Countrywide rep and they have a 15 yr. conforming fixed rate loan at 4.395% and the 30 yr. conforming is 4.625%. That is amazing. Rates haven’t been that low since the 1940’s.

One of the highlights of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2009 is the first time Home Buyer Tax Credit. There is up to $8,000 tax credit for homestead buyers who buy between Jan. 1,09 and Dec. 1, 09. If you haven’t purchased a home in three years, you also may be eligible for this credit. The best part is….the credit doesn’t have to be repaid, and is taken as a deduction at tax time.

Here is a perfect golf course property to use that tax credit toward. Live in Newport Beach on a golf course for $699,000.  2 bedrooms, 2 baths with views from the living room, dining room and Master bedroom. 2 car garage, AC and association pool and tennis courts. Let’s make a Deal!!!

Another great property I want to tell you about has a little water view from the master bedroom and the deck. It is in a small gated comunity with a pool that practically sits on the Bay. Walking distance to Balboa Island, a ferry ride to the Beach and very close to Fashion Island. Wow!!

It is 2 bedrooms, 2 baths with one up and one down. The master suite is the entire upstairs. Very nice closet with lots of “built ins” . The kitchen has been upgraded and so have the baths. 2 car garage for extra storage or your golf cart and ample guest parking.  2 years ago it was priced at $1,595,000. Now..it is priced just over a million. What a “steal”

Have a GREAT Day!!!!

More beach and golf properties coming soon!

The Rain is making our courses GREENER!!

One good thing about the rain is….it makes everything look so GREEN. So, it great for the golf course (even though it may not be that great for your game!)

But it isn’t always the best thing for our Beaches. It is so sad to see how much debris washes up on the Beach after a good rain.  If we all do our part to use less plastic and styrofoam  and to recycle when we do….this will be a cleaner, greener world to live in. The cost of dredging the Newport Bay is outrageous and no one wants to pay for it. I think our neighbors who “dump” in it ought to help. Maybe then they will be more careful!

OK….back to golf!   For Sale: cute 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath condo is located on the Big Canyon Golf Course. in Newport Beach. It has a newly remoulded kitchen and Master bedroom…………..and wood floors throughout the downstairs   and amazing views. All for the great price of  $869,000.

Golf Course or Water Views???

OK….what do you prefer??  Since we have so many beautiful “views” in the OC, view properties are at a premium.

On a granader scale….approx. 4,000 sq. ft.,4 bedroom suites with a main floor master. Open floor plan with infinity pool an dspa….perched above one of the fairways!

Lets go to the water! Do you want to live on an Island??? Contemporary bayfront 2 bed with office and 3 bath home with elevator, dock and Bay view.

Looking for something smaller with a water view?? Newport Harbor, Ocean ,Catalina and coast views all the way to Palos Verde. This condo looks over the pool. Has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. A great 2nd home or beach getaway.


Another opportunity…..a little less $$ with a parcial view of the Newport Bay. A gated condo complex with boat docks available for a monthy fee.

All are walking distance to Fashion Island, Jazz concerts at the Newport Beach Hyatt, Balboa Island and Corona Del Mar.

What is happening in Golf?

It is another beautiful day in Southern California and I wish I could be on the golf course! The weather is fabulous! Warm and sunny with a gentle ocean breeze. Just Perfect!!

 Now…the golf courses right now, that is a different story. It is that time of year and many are under repair and some are even closed for a couple weeks. As you know….this is all good in the long run but not so much fun to play on right now.

The Big Excitement is The Villas at Pelican Hill and the Hotel are frantically trying to tie up loose ends so they can open toward the end of November. It is really beginning to look fabulous and the views of the Ocean and the Courses is amazing! I’ll try to get some pictures to you soon!

In the mean time…….hit them long and straight and keep that putter working!
