Pleasant Hill Home for Sale – Now Is the Right Time to Buy

Pleasant Hill Homes For Sale

Pleasant Hill Homes For Sale – Simple Tips For Buying A Home

 

Use these tips if you’re thinking about buying a home in Pleasant Hill

 

By Pleasant Hill Times

 

Now is the perfect time to buy a Pleasant Hill Home For Sale because, mortgage interest rates have decreased to just 4.25% for a 30-year fixed mortgage loan (lowest since 2013).

 

This means you can save hundreds of dollars per month on your mortgage payment, compared to waiting another year, and thousands over the lifetime of your mortgage loan.

 

In today’s post I’ll break down home buying tips which will give you the edge over other buyers who are searching for a Pleasant Hill Home for Sale.

 

Tip 1 – Establish a Real Budget

 

Before searching for a Pleasant Hill Home for Sale you should establish a budget and determine what you can really afford to pay when buying a home.

 

Buying a home isn’t all about the payment; you will need to consider the additional costs of home ownership like homeowners insurance, taxes and possible Homeowners Association fees which will come with owning a home.

 

Tip 2 – Get Pre-Approved For Buying a Pleasant Hill Home for Sale

 

Although the common home mortgage ‘buzz word’ these days is pre-qualified, you will want to get pre-approved for a mortgage loan because, pre-approval means your lender will have taken more steps to confirm that you are really able to buy a home and have a down payment, credit score and job history to be approved for a home loan.

 

Tip 3 – Stand Out From Other Buyers

 

Last of all, but most important, as a home buyer your goal should be to stand out from other buyers by doing simple things like:

 

  • Work with the seller on their schedule and consider options like rent back if needed.
  • Write a personalized letter to the seller to tell them your story.
  • Agree to the seller’s timeline and don’t be unreasonable with setting your own tight time frames for building inspections and or finance conditions.

Designer Shoe Warehouse Set To Open In Pleasant Hill on October 23rd

Designer Shoe Warehouse Pleasant Hill

Designer Shoe Warehouse Pleasant Hill Will Be Opening October 23rd!

 

Learn More about the Latest National Retailer to Call Pleasant Hill Home

By Pleasant Hill Times

Last year the Pleasant Hill Dome was finally demolished after years of many attempts from movie lovers to save the landmark but in its place other businesses have planted roots in Pleasant Hill including Dick’s Sporting Goods and the soon to open Designer Shoe Warehouse.

About Designer Shoe Warehouse

Founded in 1991 Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW) is one of the most well-known shoe retailers in the United States because they sell a huge selection of both designer and brand name footwear.

Since their start in the early 1990’s DSW has grown to well over 400 stores across the USA, Canada and Puerto Rico.

DSW DESIGNER SHOE WAREHOUSE

21,788 Square Foot Store

Thanks to the resurgent economy more people are buying brand name and designer shoes across the United States and Designer Shoe Warehouse has been expanding at a rapid pace.

Their Pleasant Hill store will sit on the spot where Pleasant Hill CineArts dome was once located.

Long Time Coming

Once Designer Shoe Warehouse finally opens in Pleasant Hill, this will complete the redevelopment of the shopping center which had seen a variety of delays in its redevelopment over the years due to efforts from local historians to save the Pleasant Hill Dome and the recent economic recession.

Although the Pleasant Hill Dome is gone it’s not forgotten, developer SyWest has commemorated the beloved landmark by creating a tile mural of the dome and installing eight concrete pavers which have the theater’s iconic dome near the entrance to Dick’s Sporting Goods store.

San Francisco Giants Head to NLCS

Giants Baseball

San Francisco Giants 2014

 

Club Beats Nationals 3-2 and Prepares For A 2012 Rematch with the Cardinals in the NLCS

 

Baseball is alive and well in the Bay Area and it couldn’t have gotten more exciting last night with the Giants 3-2 win over the Nationals.

 

What’s great about their win over the Nationals is that the Giants were once again called the “underdog” and they defied the expectation of every Baseball writer by beating the Nat’s and will once again be in the post season in spite of the difficulties they had during the regular season.

 

Counted Out, but Not Out

 

For Giant’s fans there was never any doubt they would make it back to the Post Season but for National’s fans, baseball analysts and writers across the United States, everyone thought the Giants would be kicked out of the post season as the Nationals were thought to be a stronger team but the Giant’s defied expectations once again.

 

What to Expect in the Playoff’s

 

Now is a great time to be a baseball fan because, every team steps of their efforts a notch including the Giant’s.

 

As a baseball fan what’s great about the post season, besides having the Giants in the playoffs, is that there’s going to be plenty of great players to watch, including veterans Tim Hudson, and Jake Peavy, plus rookies like Joe Panik, who will be competing in the biggest games of their careers.

 

Baseball Isn’t Won On Paper

 

Giants fans know better than anyone how players like Ryan Vogelsong did in September but with everything on the line, and the instincts of manager Bruce Bochy to start him, Vogelsong no-hit the Nationals on Tuesday night during the first four innings.

 

Maybe it’s having everything on the line that brings out the best in players like Vogelsong, or it’s the quality of competitors who call the Giants home during the 2014 season, regardless of the reason one thing is for sure, the Giants are back in the playoffs and may be going for their 3rd World Series ring in 5 years.

 

What are your thoughts on the Giant’s facing the Cardinals in the playoffs? Feel free to leave us a comment below.
