San Francisco, Jobs, Google, Housing, YIKES~!!!!

San Francisco, Jobs, Google, Housing, YIKES~!!!!

In what could be one of the largest game changing real estate deals in business history in the Bay Area, Google has been talking about a gazillion square feet at Hunter’s Point Shipyard in San Francisco. Yes, Google needs space but are they just trying to leverage their deal in Mountain View or can they take all the space they can get? Hopefully, the latter for economic development but the question again comes, where are you going to put everybody? There are many ideas, more opinions and no ironclad solution. It’s time to regionalize housing solutions and mass transit. The Bay Area is about as progressive an area as there is, but it’s time to get a definitive plan for the region. http://m.sf.curbed.com/archives/2015/06/15/google_in_talks_for_space_at_the_sf_shipyard_in_hunters_point.php?utm_campaign=issue-37742&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Curbed+SF Fred Glick Share this:TwitterFacebookGoogleTumblrLinkedInEmailPrintPocketRedditPinterestLike this:Like...

August 1, 2015…a Day You Will Hate Forever

8/1/15 may become the worst day in the history of residential real estate and mortgage banking.  That is the day the new CFPB inspired Dodd-Frank disclosure rules come into effect. Because of them, the days of the 30 day close are over.  One tiny little move in fees and you wait, one little change of a closing sheet could cause a 3 day delay, you will have to wait much longer to even order an appraisal. By my calculations, not many people were desperately ripped off or hurt by the current system, but the CFPB felt different.  Did they just need to do something? Well, whatever, it’s not going to be delayed and it’s going to stay around for awhile so get used to it.

Why Can’t We be Friends? Insurance versus Mortgage Versus Real Estate Brokers

Why Can’t We be Friends? Insurance versus Mortgage Versus Real Estate Brokers

Insurance companies.  Insurance Brokers.  Love them or hate them…. If you are in the mortgage business, you hate them. Example?  Today, I am doing a refinance for a customer and need the Association’s insurance policy. We called the current broker and they said that the current policy expires on Friday and they have not picked a new company to bind coverage yet. Problem?  Yes!  My customer’s rate expires and needs to close.  The lender needs to know that there will be coverage and what that coverage is. The insurance broker won’t return calls, is out to lunch and doesn’t give a hoot. Also, the Homeowner’s Association is not aware that this is an issue and they don’t care either. CAn’t we all just understand who needs what and when?  It’s no skin off anyone’s back to communicate and understand the situation. Working together is important.  As real estate and mortgage professionals, it’s time to educate Associations and Insurance companies about the fact that they are making people miserable and...
