Renting a home more costly than buying one

With all the real estate choices available nowadays, California residents contemplating a move may be wondering if they should buy a home or rent one. While purchasing a home may seem more expensive, considering rising interest rates and inflation, studies have shown that renting is actually more costly in the long run.

Opportunities and challenges for the CRE lending sector in 2017

Strong performance in major California markets like Los Angeles, San Diego and the San Francisco Bay Area contributed to a good overall year for U.S. commercial real estate in 2016. The Mortgage Bankers Association released a report that put the amount of commercial property loans originated in 2016 at more than $500 billion, and robust economic performance contributed to healthy increases in property values and rents in most major American cities. Experts are generally fairly optimistic about the outlook for 2017, but concerns about rising interest rates and looming regulations linger.

Tech startups help modernize California real estate industry

Historically, the commercial real estate industry has not embraced many of the technological changes and advancements that have helped drive growth and efficiency in other industries. However, a number of new technology companies spurred by investments by venture capital firms are making improvements in the way that the real estate business operates in California.

Finding the best mortgage

For many people living in California, buying a home is the most significant purchase they will ever make. For that reason, finding the right mortgage is extremely important. Residential real estate mortgage terms vary widely, making it important for consumers to read the fine print before applying for a loan.

Issues regarding real estate closings

California residents who anticipate selling or buying a home may face unexpected problems that could hinder or delay the closing. One major hindrance to the closing process is problems with the property's title. In order to acquire title insurance, the home buyer has to get a title search to make sure the property is clear of problems such as a state or federal tax lien, a lien by a contractor or any claims from relatives or a co-owner.

CRE is an attractive proposition for Chinese investors

Overseas investors have been snapping up commercial properties, and much of this spending has been done in bustling California cities like Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco. Chinese investors alone have sunk more than $300 billion into American real estate, and many financial experts expect this flood of Asian money to grow even stronger in 2017 and 2018.
