With more than a decade of successful experience with two of the largest residential real estate brokerages, the Vincent Morris Team has joined Real Living Lifestyles in San Diego.
“Vincent is ranked in the top 2% of all realtors nationwide with more than 500 transactions,” stated Diane Hogencamp, Carlsbad manager. “We couldn’t be more pleased that he is now a vital part of our company.”
He approaches the job of selling a home as a ‘marketer’. “It’s my job to get as many potential buyers through the front door as possible,” Morris says. “It’s important to use all avenues to get the word out there about the home’s unique features. By reaching the right buyers, I will sell that house quickly and at the best possible price.”
One of his goals is to make the home buying or selling process as seamless as possible. “By using a team approach, we are certain to pay attention to all the details, and we don’t miss any opportunities for our clients,” he says.
His business background includes CEO/President of a retail chain, VP of Sales for a manufacturing company, as well as restaurant ownership – all serving as a strong foundation for his extraordinary customer service in the Real Estate industry.
Morris is the Founder of a local BNI (Business Network International) Chapter, a local business – global networking organization which helps members create long-term, meaningful relationships with quality business professionals. “This affiliation ties in nicely with Real Living Lifestyles’ local ownership which shares a global reach through Brookfield Residential Property Services, leading provider of real estate and relocation services and technology,” he said.

Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway
With interest rates at the lowest level we’ve ever witnessed, this might be the right time to say “I’m getting off the fence and into my own home.” First time buyers have an opportunity like never before because of the cost of money and affordable housing.
At a time when we seem to be facing many challenges in the real estate market, fear can start to creep in. We all have these feelings at one time or another and the way people cope with it is to focus on taking positive action to remove the negative.
In an article published by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), it stated that for the second straight week, mortgage rates reached a new milestone, with 30-year and 15-year fixed-rate mortgages hitting record lows again, according to the Freddie Mac weekly mortgage market survey.
Something that buyers should consider when working with their Realtor is the change that is expected effective October 1, 2011 when FHA high balance conforming loans are reduced to $546,250, down from $697,500. Your agent will be your liaison with the mortgage and finance world so you won’t need to navigate these waters alone.
As Todd Pianin, President and Owner of Samuel Scott Financial Group, stated earlier this month, “Interest rates are the lowest in our lifetime, which makes this a great time to get into a mortgage.”
Here are the rates for the week ending Sept. 15: 30-year fixed rate mortgage averaged 4.09 percent; 15-year fixed averaged 3.30 percent; both are down from the prior week’s record lows. If you qualify, a VA loan is still an amazing source of funds with lower downpayment and cost.
The California Association of Realtors (C.A.R.) just released the figures for August sales. According to C.A.R. President Beth L. Peerce, “August’s median price marked the highest since December 2010, signifying that prices may be stabilizing in some market segments, as investors and first-time buyers continue to see value and opportunity in the market.”
A 2011 Pew Research survey shows that our Nation has high regard for homeownership with 81 percent feeling it is the best long term investment. With some encouraging news, we can face the hurdles ahead of us and not just survive these challenging times but choose to thrive in them.

More Answers Than Questions
By now we’ve all heard about the unprecedented downgrade to the U.S. credit rating, which ultimately led the stock market to take a week-long roller coaster ride. You may feel that you have more questions than answers and are not quite sure where to turn.
How might this financial news affect our mortgage rates and Real Estate market? Many were concerned that it might cause the interests rates to increase. Others considered just the opposite might take place. None the less, it has been a volatile time for Wall Street and the overall U.S. financial markets.
For questions involving the real estate industry, whether you are selling or buying, your Realtor has the education, experience and desire to provide you with the answers you need so you can make the decisions that are in your best interest.
As an article last week in the Washington Post pointed out, the recent stock market sell-off created ultra-low interest rates. Fortunately, the Federal Reserve pledged to keep its benchmark interest rate at a record low at least through mid-2013, representing the biggest effort since November to spark the U.S. economy and revive confidence. This is good for the housing market and will help to encourage some of those from first time buyers to long-time investors to take advantage of the current home prices and remarkable interest rates.
According to an AP article in last Sunday’s Union Tribune about the ups and downs of Wall Street, it said “Investors can’t make up their minds, it’s not time to sell, but it’s probably not time to pour money into stocks either.”
With record low rates this week, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 4.32 percent; 15-year fixed averaged 3.50 percent, 5-year ARM averaged 3.13; and 1-year ARM: averaged 2.89 percent, making real estate another good solution for cash investments.
When we think about home ownership, several things come quickly to mind: it is still one of the greatest aspects of the American Dream; the long-term investment is quite positive; the “pride factor” is high as it adds to our lifestyle satisfaction.
In a survey conducted by the National Association of Realtors to renters nationwide asking why home ownership matters to them, the respondents indicated stability and safety as the top reason. Long-term economic reasons such as building equity followed closely behind.
