How mortgage rate increases can impact home buyers

In Los Angeles and other parts of California, it is not uncommon for home sellers to receive several offers from buyers. This is partially because there are fewer homes available on the market. Higher mortgage rates could make it even harder to find an affordable home in markets throughout the country. The interest rate on a 30-year fixed loan has climbed to 4.42 percent from 3.95 percent at the start of 2018.

Knowing when a mortgage can be transferred

When a home is sold in California or anywhere else in the United States, a buyer must usually get a new mortgage to pay for it. The seller will use the proceeds from the sale to pay off the mortgage he or she currently holds on the property. However, there are situations in which a mortgage can be transferred from one party to another.

Does your hotel's pool comply with the ADA?

More than likely, your hotel already complies with aspects of the Americans with Disabilities Act. You may have ramps, ADA compliant rooms and other accommodations for your guests with disabilities. After all, these guests deserve the same opportunities to enjoy your hotel as anyone else does.

What to know about California short sales

Homeowners in California who are struggling to pay their mortgage could avoid being foreclosed on. For those who qualify, a short sale allows a home to be sold for less than what is owed on a home loan. Short sales are usually only an option for those who have shown that they are experiencing long-term financial issues and are unable to refinance their loan.

The benefits of investing in commercial real estate

Higher interest rates and increased volatility in the stock market may signal the beginning of the end to the current bull run. Therefore, some analysts suggest that California entrepreneurs should reduce exposure to stocks and put their money into other investment classes. One potential investment alternative is the commercial real estate debt and equities markets within the United States. Doing so could provide stable returns while providing income at the same time.
