Or maybe a workout room – oh there is the 1 car garage for that… Hmm… the possibilities of any business or hobby, a display of your passions and interests. The bonus room is set off of the center courtyard, one of the major highlights of this home.

The nighttime view shows off the curb appeal of this property. The brick tower, wrought iron gate into the front door reception, the fountain, and casing around the windows demonstrate the superior craftsmanship in comparison to other homes at this price point.

Before rolling out to all 91,000 agents, there were early adopter ‘test’ groups who have had access and able to utilize the full suite of products for several months. This allowed KW technology to work out many kinks prior to the release. While not all 91,000 agents have full access yet, it’s coming.

The Google Business suite is just another compliment to the tools already offered by Keller Williams Worldwide. eEdge is the software currently operating the back-end of Agent websites.

How you can use IRA money to invest in Real Estate

Direct your IRA $$$

San Diego 2nd Home — Part of Your IRA?

Some San Diego Retirement Portfolios Include Second Homes

San Diego Second Homes: Legitimate IRA Investments?

Investors are still shaking off the memory of watching what happened to their IRA stock portfolios during the nightmarish global financial crisis. Even the groggy recovery that’s been under way ever since has featured the kind of stomach-churning drops that drive investors to the Pepto-Bismol.

So it’s not surprising that some have been searching for alternative assets that could grow tax-free within their retirement accounts. And lately I’ve been hearing from more clients who are asking about the possibilities in real estate, including San Diego second homes and even vacant acreage.

You read that right: real estate is a little-publicized yet entirely legal vehicle for IRAs! Right now, when prices are at bargain-basement levels, investing for the long run in what many see as the most ‘real’ of all holdings certainly is an opportunity worth looking into. Nevertheless, there are some big cautions.

First off, let me emphasize that my area of expertise is real estate — not financial advice. Anyone who is serious about placing real estate in their IRA will absolutely need expert financial and tax advice. Yet, if what you read below makes sense, you should call me about rental property opportunities in San Diego.

They will explain that traditional IRAs can not include real estate; only ‘self-directed’ IRAs are eligible (although they are fairly easy to open or steer existing IRA assets into). Despite the fact that some extra freedom is granted such accounts, when you ‘self-direct’ an IRA, you are subject to some very firm prohibitions. In the case of a real estate investment, just one of those is that you can’t use the investment (for instance, if you purchased one of our San Diego second homes) for your own benefit until you retire. In other words, your pretty little cabin by the lake can be rented out, but you or your family can’t spend the weekend there. You also can’t hire yourself (or a company you own) to manage it. And if brother Fred wants to vacation in it (even if he would pay rent for the privilege), you have to tell him no.

The general idea is the same as with any IRA: you or family members cannot benefit from account assets until you retire. That makes perfect sense, because the funds used in it have been contributed tax-free, and any gains are appreciating tax-free. Still, if you can secure a non-recourse loan, that might allow you to effectively double your investment dollars.

The penalties for not following the rules make that not worth even thinking about. That means that most everyone will probably want to use an administrator or custodial firm with real estate experience. But for those who find second homes or other income-producing San Diego properties, the prospect of building a tax-free revenue stream within a self-directed IRA is certainly intriguing. It could mean the Pepto-Bismol stays on the medicine shelf.

I hope you will think of me whenever you decide to discuss the current prospects for any San Diego real estate investment. I’m standing by!

Summertime is the perfect time for a Home Once-Over

Your Summer Home Maintenance Checklist

Santaluz Homes Can Use a Summer Once-Over

Your Busy August May Get Even Busier

August tends to be a busy month in most Santaluz homes. If you have kids who are out of school, it’s up to you to dream up new ways to keep them out of trouble (and away from non-stop video gaming). Even if kids are not at homes, you probably have to get twice as much done anyway – you want to be ahead at work and around the house so you can relax and enjoy your vacation. Or recover from it.

And then there is the likelihood that in the back of your mind is the knowledge that you’ve been putting off what should be an annual maintenance once-over. All homes have areas that need looking after, and August and September are the best time to get at them.  On dry days that aren’t too blisteringly hot to work, it’s prime time to fix areas that the year’s wear and tear may be turning into future problems.

Warm weather is perfect for conducting a timely energy audit. Any gaps or cracks around doors or windows – the likely culprits if heat leakage raised last winter’s energy bills  – can most easily be filled in warm weather. Other possible spots where heat can leak is the junction between different materials, and around fireplace dampers. If you’re a dedicated DIYer, grab some caulk or other professional-grade material and get filling. If you’re less handy, the energy audit may suggest a call to an appropriate professional. A review of the year’s energy bills will tell you whether that makes dollars and sense.

This is the time to pay attention to the big one: the foundation. It’s prudent in all Santaluz homes to clean visible concrete surfaces. Sidewalks and steps can be cleaned very effectively with the same pressure washer you use to clean your car. When it comes to the foundation, be sure to check for cracks, water or mold.. If mold or water is present, a trusted contractor or structural engineer will be able to recommend a solution that prevents real trouble later.

Summer is also a good time to take a look at your home’s deck or patios.  Standing water rots wood. The solution can be as simple as slipping planter “feet” beneath outdoor flower pots. As long as water is able to flow around or under stationary objects, the underlying wood will benefit.

These are only a few examples of what you can make part of your summer home maintenance checklist.  Call me anytime with home and maintenance-related questions, if you need a recommendation for a reliable local contractor or service provider, or if you want to check on the status of the Santaluz homes market in your neighborhood.
