Hundreds of canines roamed the beach in Del Mar on Sunday September 25th to enjoy the 6th Annual Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon! The event, which is the largest surfing dog competition in the nation, raised more than $100,000 for the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe.
Eighty dogs competed in the surf contest bringing over 4,000 human spectators to ‘ooh and ahh’ over their 4-legged friends. More than 70 company booths lined the entrance to the beach including Real Living Lifestyles Real Estate brokerage in San Diego County.
“My wife Mary Lou and I brought our dog, Olivia, to cheer for the ‘pros’,” said Steve Rodgers, President & CEO of Real Living Lifestyles. Our company

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.
