Saturday Fishing & Jackpot Winning

On Saturday we went out and got a few rock fish. The best fish of the day was for Ryan’s guest Adam. It was a good thing. We had a small MDRAnglers jackpot tournament and Adam took first place with a good sized fish. Another guest on our boat took third place, Jeff. Now we are ready to Win more stuff in the MDR Halibut Derby. Which would be very Cool.
Weather was nice for the most part. Some "Lumpy" waves though. A little unpleasant and hard to go faster than 8 knots.

loan news... What a big week we had.

In the News: Bonds and home loan rates wildly rocketed higher and plummeted lower on a daily basis throughout the last week. In the end fixed home loan rates ended up improved by about .25% for the week

The big news from the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO), who announced that they lifted special capital restrictions that had been put in place for both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. This will allow these firms to pump $200 Billion into the mortgage market by way of buying Mortgage Bonds. The anticipated increase in demand was very good news for Bonds and home loan rates, which immediately improved on the news.

Starter homes in Los Angeles

What is a starter home here in West Los Angeles... $600,000 to $700,000.

If you want a lot of land (dirt) and not just living space (condo) it is possible to get a single family home now that there is inventory and the buyer has a little bit more ability to negotiate where you are not forced to be over $700,000.

There is one nice little Los Angeles home on the west side priced just under $600,000 and it has a very good sized lot for our area. Over 6,000 sq feet. At the end of a culdesac. Ask me about it.

Others range from $675,000 with a nice little 2bedroom 1 bath and 5,000 sqft lot in an ok part of town. To a Westchester home in a area not to far from the airport or the freeway but with good amenities. Options. Options. Options.

What is a "Starter Home" in your part of the country? Leave a comment.
