Rental Scams in San Diego

by North Park Real Estate Expert-Metro San Diego

 

Warning

Rental Scams are occurring in many neighborhoods in San Diego far too often. It is hard to keep up with them. We, as listing agents in North Park are always scouring different websites such as Craigslist, Zillow, Trulia and several others to see if our listings are showing up on these sites as rentals. Many times they do as there are people who steal our photos and information from our actual websites and other Real Estate sites, copy and upload them as rentals. It is very easy for them to do as these sites allow people to post Homes for Sale and Homes for rent for free. I believe that if these sites charged people to upload each listing, there would be a lot less than what there currently are.

Whenever we have found, our listings posted we immediately contact those websites and demand that they take them down. Most of the time they do come down but by the time they do, I wonder how many people have been caught in this trap. Hopefully none at all.

If you are searching for a rental online, please be very careful. If the prices seem too good to be true, they usually are. Do a google search and see if the same house pops up "For Sale". If so, contact the listing agent and ask questions. This will save you a lot of aggravation.

North Park, A Great Place to Live

by North Park Real Estate Expert-Metro San Diego

 

North Park is a great place to live in San Diego. This is where I have called home for the past 14 years and where I will continue to do so for many more years to come. There has been tremendous growth and opportunity and, of course, the weather in San Diego is one of the best in the world, which is why so many people love to visit and never leave.

Most of the homes in North Park are from the early and mid-1900’s. Many people are restoring and remodeling them, which keeps the neighborhood beautiful and shows true pride of ownership.

With so many restaurants and different shops opening up in North Park, it is hard to keep track of them all.  I  just came upon a local blog (http://mysocaldlife.com/a-hipsters-guide-to-24-hours-in-san-diego/#comment-1557)  which is a great resource for those of you looking to explore North Park and other parts of San Diego.

Buying a Home in North Park

Buying a Home in North Park

When Buying a Home in North Park , South Park, and most of our Metro Neighborhoods in San Diego things can sometimes look a little scarier than they really are. Most of the homes in our neighborhoods were built in the early 1900’s and although some have been restored or remodeled when you get into having a home inspector check every nook and cranny, things do and will come up and should not be blown out of proportion.

One question to ask is “Is it a major thing, or is it a minor thing?”  One item that is typical in our homes is knob and tube wiring. Some people come across this in a home inspection and make it a bigger deal than what it really is. If it was installed properly and it has not been improperly disturbed, most electricians will say that it is still safe. With this being said, if you are planning on adding modern day conveniences such as and AC or modern day appliances, you may want to consult with a licensed electrician about upgrading.

     

What about cracks? Here in the San Diego Metro Neighborhood it is very common to see cracks on some walls, especially around window corners or doorways. You should not be too worried about these but always look into it if you see that they are becoming larger at a fast pace. Hairline cracks typically occur over time from settlement of the home.

Buying an older home is a lot different than buying a newer home in a newer development. It is important to work with a Realtor who is very experienced with selling these types homes and knowing what to look for. He or she should have connections with vendors such as electricians, foundation experts, and plumbers that are extremely experienced with older homes and not the contractors that are only used to working on newer homes. This is critical as it could cause you from buying a perfectly great home in a great neighborhood. It can also cost you financial stress if it turns out that the home has major issues with it that you were not aware of.

Luckypup Dog Rescue

by North Park Real Estate Expert-Metro San Diego

Selling Homes in North Park and the Metro Neighborhood of San Diego is what love doing. When we are not selling homes, we spend most of our time with our all of our rescue dogs and supporting animal rescue organizations. 

One of our favorite organizations is Lucky Pup Dog Rescue. They started out in North Park and were finally able to have their own little place so that they can help more dogs in need find their forever home. With the goal of opening their doors by Aug. 15th, they are needing a little help. If you would like to and are able to, please check them out. If you have time instead of $, they can use that as well.
