  For a few Fountain Valley mortgage applicants, next week may see a one-time favorable change in how they are viewed by home loan lending institutions. It’s a technical change that could amount to a significant difference in the results they get when they apply for Fountain Valley home loans.

The first evidence of what the Washington Post calls “a surprise boost” will be triggered on Saturday, which marks the July 1 beginning of a changeover in the information gathered by the three national credit bureaus. Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion have been working with a number of states to handle an awkward technical problem: many states have outmoded computer reporting systems that result in “troubling error rates” in official public records.

  Last week, following the Fed’s hike in the rates they charge banks, you might expect a matching rise in mortgage rates for Fountain Valley home buyers and refi applicants. If the experts are right, that’s far from a done deal.

The Washington Post headline said it all:

Mortgage rates move slightly higher but could be headed back down again.” 

Mortgage News Daily reported the same: a slight nudge upward, then back down:

By holding flat, rates remain very close to the best levels seen in more than 8 months.”

The consensus was all but unanimous, with even Freddie Mac predicting that “mortgage rates are likely to follow” Treasury yields—that is, downward.

When the Fed raises the rates banks must pay, it’s only logical to expect the move

  As has become traditional on the third Sunday in June, Huntington Beach fathers can look forward to being honored and fussed over. For most families, Father’s Day in Huntington Beach is considered to be every bit as important a celebration as Mother’s Day. At least that’s what most families pretend. But there are two basic reasons why it’s usually an uphill battle.

  First, there’s the checkered history. Then, there’s the reality.

  HISTORY: Mother’s Day got the jump on Father’s Day because, starting in 1905, its zealous originator (Anna Jarvis) wouldn’t give up on the idea. Because the holiday was dreamed up right at the start of the 20th century, men were exclusively in charge of the calendar and holidays. Since they were men and

    The science of pricing a house in Newport Beach isn’t really a science.

    The thing about science that makes it reliable is that its findings can be confirmed experimentally. If Galileo drops a feather and a lead weight from the Tower of Pisa to prove something about gravity, anyone else can trot right up there and repeat the experiment. If the results are always the same, we’re in the realm of science.

    Pricing Newport Beach houses may not be pure art, but it’s a cinch it’s not science, either. You can’t repeat a pricing experiment because no two Newport Beach houses are exactly alike (even the same models in a development are situated differently). And even if you sold the same house two times, the pool of possible buyers is changing all

 The reason “Top 7” lists draw such universal attention is their value as time-savers: you can skim down the bold-faced items to spot topics of interest, needing to read further only for those that can use further explanation.  When it comes to home selling in Fountain Valley, common flubs would be of interest if you’ve just been through a sale or are beginning to entertain the idea. Knowing the most common missteps certainly can’t hurt.

It has to be noted that home selling blunders to avoid are compiled for the benefit of For Sale by Owner do-it-yourselfers. The target readership are those who for some reason have fallen prey to the undisputed flub #1: failing to hire a licensed California real estate agent such as (to pick a name at
