Pasadena CA Real Estate: What Are Real Estate Closing Costs?

When you buy or sell a home in Pasadena, California, you will incur closing costs. Real Estate closing costs are generally expenses associated with buying or selling your property.

Pasadena Home Seller Closing Costs usually include:

  • Real Estate sales commission - usually the biggest chunk or expense. Each real estate agent and company sets their own real estate commission fees generally based on the services that they provide. Pasadena Real Estate agents market properties differently, belong to different real estate boards and each has their own streangths and weaknesses. Interview your real estate agent carefully to find the right one for you.
  • Escrow Company Charges- each escrow company has a fee schedule. I prefer to use Shamrock Escrow in Pasadena. Tammey Bazinet of Shamrock Escrow is an excellent and knowledgeable escrow officer. She is certified by the state of California since 1993. Shamrock Escrow charges $200 standard fee plus $2 per each thousand of the home sales price. Price your escrow companies. Each has a different fee schedule and a lot of escrow officers are NOT certified.
    • Additional escrow fees include public notary charges, loan tie-in fees, document preparation and messenger fees.
  • Title Company Charges - each title company has their own fee schedule. The fees are based on the sales price and vary significantly from one company to the next.
  • Loan Pay Off Fees: banks usually charge fees when you pay off your loan including reconveyance fees, recording fees and demand fees.
  • Pasadena Occupancy Report - City of Pasadena charges $139.05 for Pasadena condo, townhome or single family residences inspections. A city inspector will come out, perform an inspection and provide a report. These fees usually go up once a year and most likely will be increased this summer.
  • Home Warranty for the buyer: it is common practice in Pasadena to provide a home warranty plan for the first year of home ownership for the buyer. A home seller does not have to provide this plan, but most do.

Pasadena Home Buyer Closing Costs:

  • Mortgage/Lending Fees: the most significant closing cost for the buyer would be lender charges including points, application and processing fees.
  • Appraisal Fee: if financing is required on your home, the lender will request an appraiser to provide an appraisal report. In the past, desk appraisals were acceptable by lenders, but recently a full appraisal is required by most lenders. A full appraisal will include the appraiser visiting your Pasadena home and taking pictures of the interior and exterior and providing comparable sales in the area for the last three to six months. Appraisal fees run anywhere between $350 to $600.
  • Escrow Company Charges: both buyer and seller pay their own escrow fees. See above escrow fees for information.
  • Title Company Charges: same as above.
  • Inspection Fees: recommended minimum home buyer inspections include a physical inspection and a sewage line inspection. Roof inspections, mold inspection, structural engineering inspections are also available. Make sure that your inspector is a CREIA inspector.
    • Physical inspectors charge based on the size of the house and can be anywhere between $250 and $600.
    • Sewer line ispectionsusually run $250
      • Send me a quick email or comment below if you'd like to get a list of local Pasadena inspectors.
  • Permit Fees: I suggest that buyers go down to city hall to pull permits on the home that they are buying and talk to the city building inspectors. This is the best way to research the history of your new home and understand what kind of improvements or changes can be done in the future.

Luxury Home Expectations in San Marino California

My last post identified the price point for luxury homes and estates for sale in San Marino, California.

It is clear that the top 10% of the San Marino Real Estate market is for homes costing $3,000,000 and above. I wanted to take a look at the 13 luxury homes in San Marino that were sold in 2007 and see what affluent San Marino home buyers expected to get for their money.

Below is a list of amenities and features of almost all the San Marino luxury homes reviewed:

  • LOCATION: All of these San Marino estates were North of Huntington Drive in close proximity to the Huntington Library or Lacy Park.
  • LARGE LOTS: Affluent San Marino luxury home buyers can expect at least 1/2 an acre of land. A lot of these homes had an acre of land or more.
  • FIVE is an IMPORTANT NUMBER: Almost all these San Marino estates had five or more bedrooms and offered more than 5,000 square feet in living space.
  • FORMAL DINING ROOM and FAMILY ROOM: All these San Marino homes had a formal dining room and a family Room

  • POOL & SPA: Most of these homes had a pool and a spa
  • FIREPLACES: All San Marino estates had fireplaces.

Surprisingly, the following list of features that you would expect be necessary for most of San Marino home buyers were NOT a given in the luxury San Marino market place.

  • LARGE GARAGES: Most of these San Marino homes had a two to three car garage
  • TENNIS COURTS: Only 3 out of 13 estates had tennis courts.

Luxury Homes in San Marino California

An average price of a San Marino CA home for 2007 is $1,750,000. With San Marino Real Estate prices being so high, are all homes in San Marino considered luxury homes?

It's hard to come up with a definition of a luxury home. What's luxurious to some is just average to others.

Real Estate Agents in San Marino California and the rest of the country usually agree that a luxury home is usually at the top 10% of the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) prices for a particular area.

Looking at the last 136 home sales in San Marino, it's clear that if we apply the definition above, the luxury price point in San Marino starts at $3,000,000.

Currently, there are three luxury homes in San Marino California that fall into this category:

Oxford_Road

1390 Oxford Road, San Marino

Offered at $2,980,000 (a little below the $3 million point, but by just a touch.

The Memorial Day 2008 Super MEME

Happy Memorial Day everyone!

I woke up this morning to an email from Laurie Manny of Long Beach Real Estate informing me that I've been tagged for the Memorial Day 2008 Super MEME.

Read Laurie Manny's MEME here - Laurie's Memorial Day 2008 Super MEME

A MEME is an idea, a contest, a survey, a fun fact that is repeated from person to person. Yes... it is sort of like a chain letter. This particular MEME is a way of to get to know the person being MEMEd by having them answer questions about themselves.

This Memorial Day 2008 Super MEME was started by Mary McKnight of RSS Pieces. She decided on a MEME with a theme of 8. I agree with Mary, the number 8 has been a powerful number throughout history. If you lay it on the side, it signifies infinity and has been associated with the myths around the Knights Templar and other historical figures. Katherine Neville wrote a book titled The Eight - a fascinating read!

Read Mary McKnights's MEME here - Mary's Memorial Day 2008 Super MEME

Given that I can't say no to Laurie and I still have a few minutes before I have to make breakfast for my kids, here we go:

1. Who is your favorite musical artist? (post a youtube video)

This one is easy. Don't laugh now, but I LOVE ABBA! It's a European band that has been on the number 1 charts all throughout Europe for years. It hasn't been as popular here in the states.

There is nothing like being 17 and discoing the night away to ABBA.

 

Of course, with Mamma Mia, the musical and the upcoming Mamma Mia, the Movie, I'm in heaven!

2. Who is your favorite artist (post a flicker photo)

Vincent Van Gogh

I was fortunate enough to visit Vincent Van Gogh's museum last year in Amsterdam. His work is just breath taking. His colors and compositions are spectacular.

 

3. Who is your favorite blogger?

It would have to be Seth Godin.

4. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would it be and what is the most interesting thing about them?

I'll have to pick two people. I can change the rules, can't I?

The first one would have to be my grandfather. He died pretty young, before I was born and I always wondered what he would be like. I'd love to have a conversation with him and talk about his life and his challenges. Why he married my grandma? What he wanted to accomplish in his life, etc.

The second person would have to be Robert T. Kiyosaki of Rich Dad, Poor Dad. I love the way he challenges the conventional thinking and approach towards money by the wealthy vs. the average Joe. Fascinating! Hopefully, one day I'll have an opportunity to meet him.

5. What did you want to be when you grew up?

I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Seriously though... I wanted to be a great traveler. I wanted to have the freedom to travel around the world and see how people live, meet new people, try different foods and just have fun.

6. What is the most interesting piece of trivia you know?

I find the similarities between J.F.K and Lincoln fascinating. Below excerpt taken from www.USATrivia.com

ONE HUNDRED YEARS
Abraham Lincoln was elected to the House of Representatives in 1846; John Kennedy, 1946. Lincoln failed to win the vice presidential nomination in 1856, Kennedy in 1956. The republican conventions of 1860 and 1960 were held in Chicago. Mr. Lincoln was elected to the presidency in 1860, John Kennedy in 1960. Lincoln defeated Stephen Douglas, born in 1813; Kennedy defeated Richard Nixon born in 1913. John Wilkes Booth, the assassin of President Lincoln, was born in 1839, Lee Harvey Oswald, the accused assassin of President Kennedy in 1939.

Both presidents had vice presidents named Johnson. Andrew Johnson served in the House of Representatives in 1847, Lyndon Johnson, 1947. In 1860 and 1960 both VP's were serving as Senators. Andrew Johnson was older than Lincoln and was born in 1808, Lyndon Johnson, born in 1908, was older than Kennedy. Even though Lincoln was a republican, both vice presidents were democrats. Andrew Johnson was defeated for re-election, Lyndon Johnson elected not to run for a second complete term. Andrew Johnson died of a stroke; Lyndon Johnson a heart attack.

OTHER SIMILARITIES

  • Both presidents won their respective elections with less than fifty-percent of the popular vote.
  • Each was concerned with the issue of civil rights.
  • Both presidents while in their thirties, married women in their early twenties.
  • Both wives suffered the death of a child while in the White House.
  • Lincoln and Kennedy repeatedly spoke of, and had dreams regarding, assassination attempts.
  • Each was subsequently warned by advisors not to attend the events that led to their death.
  • Lincoln and Kennedy were shot from behind, in the head.
  • They were killed on a Friday, and in the presence of their wives.
  • The assassins, Booth and Oswald, were southerners who favored unpopular ideas.
  • Booth shot Lincoln in a theater and was captured in a barn, a warehouse. Oswald allegedly shot Kennedy from a warehouse, the depository, and was arrested at a theater.
  • Lincoln was killed in Ford's Theater, Kennedy was killed in a Ford automobile; a Lincoln.
  • Both Booth and Oswald were killed before going to trail. The popular belief is that the two presidential tragedies were conspiracies with subsequent governmental cover up.
  • The names Lincoln and Kennedy contain seven letters.
  • The names Stephen and Richard, their political opponents have seven letters each.
  • The name Johnson contains seven letters.
  • The fathers of the presidents, Thomas and Joseph respectively, each have six letters.
  • The names Andrew Johnson and Lyndon Johnson each contain 13 letters, as do the names of their wives, Eliza McCardle and Claudia Taylor.
  • The names John Wilkes booth and Lee Harvey Oswald both total 15 letters.

7. If you could live in any point in history what would it be and why?

I've always been fascinated by Egypt and Cleopatra. I'd live - just for a day - mind you in Cleopatra's time around 45 BC.

8. What is the most interesting job you have ever held?

Okay, this is totally off what you would probably expect my answer to be, but I'd have to say being a MOM. Since both my kids were born, my outlook on life has changed. It opened my eyes to the mysteries of life. So... yes... it would have to be being a "mom." Pretty boring, I know.

Now... it's the time to nominate the next 8 unsuspecting victims. This means that you are required as Mary McKnight says by "meme law" to answer the same 8 questions above and then tag 8 more bloggers.

San Marino California Real Estate - Corner of Twin Palms and Sherwood

Twin Palms and Sherwood

Today, I want to focus on a beautiful pocket of San Marino, California behind Huntington Middle School - the corner of Twin Palms and Sherwood. Earlier this month, we looked at the "San Marino real estate home prices". Average price per square foot in San Marino is currently running at $593.

 

The San Marino real estate around Twin Palms and Sherwood seems to be on fire. A few homes came up on the market recently and sold within a manner of several weeks.

Here's the activity within a 1/4 mile radius of this intersection:

Address: Bed/Bath List Price Sales Price $/Sq.FT Date Sold
1845 Carlisle Dr, San Marino 4/3 $1,495,000 $1,535,000 $655 04/17/07
1806 Twin Palms, Drive, San Marino 4/4 $1,925,000 $1,700,000 $551 11/29/08

1841 Sherwood Drive, San Marino 5/4 $2,185,000 $2,100,000 $628 05/15/08

One home in the area is currently available for purchase and just had a price reduction. This San Marino home can be found at 1846 Lorain Road and is offered at $1,950,000. It has 4 bedrooms/4 baths and is close to 3,300 sq. ft. per assessor.

This San Marino pocket is very desirable since it's right next to Huntington Middle School, Valentine Elementary School and the new San Marino Public Library - Crowell Library.

It's also just minutes away from the local Starbucks, The Ice Cream Shop and a variety of San Marino restaurants.

San Marino City Hall and Fire Department are also minutes away making this corner of Twin Palms and Sherwood a very desirable San Marino location.

FHA Advantages and Disadvantages

To continue with my series of FHA posts, today, we're going to look at advantages and disadvantages of getting an FHA loan.

ADVANTAGES:

  • LOW CASH OUTLAY - Pasadena buyers can get an FHA loan for as much as 97% of Pasadena home purchase price. Only 3% down, not a bad deal.
  • FHA LOANS ARE FULLY ASSUMABLE. Yes, you read it correctly. These loans are assumable as long as the new buyer qualifies and is not an investor.
  • FHA LOANS DO NOT HAVE A PREPAYMENT PENALTY. FHA loans do not have penalties for paying off all or part of the loan before the scheduled term. This feature also gives the FHA buyer the opportunity to refinance the loan to lower interest rates if rates decline (with some additional costs involved in refinancing).

DISADVANTAGES:

  • SOME SELLERS FEAR FHA APPRAISALS: There are some sellers and real estate sales people who would prefer not to sell their homes to buyers seeking new FHA loans. This stems from past appraisals which were lower than the sale price or had extensive repair requirements. While the appraisals still may be a roadblock in some areas of the U.S., FHA now uses independent "fee" appraisers rather than FHA "staff" appraisers, which has eliminated many of the discrepancies.
  • LOAN PROCESSING TIME: FHA loans generally take about 2 weeks longer to process and close than conventional loans. Normal FHA processing time is 4-6 weeks, compared with 2-4 weeks for conventional loans. However, many FHA lenders are now approved for automatic loan approvals which can speed up processing substantially.

Pasadena California Sellers: What you NEED to know about FHA loans

FHA loans have been in the news recently due to the increase in the FHA mortgage limits, up to $729,750 for single family homes and the fact that buyers can get an FHA loan with a much smaller down payment - as low as 3% down.

READ MORE: Distressed markets and FNMA announcement

If you are a Pasadena home seller, it is critical to be aware of the following:

  • Pasadena home buyer with less than 20% down in almost all instances will need PMI insurance (Property Mortgage Insurance.)
  • PMI rates are going up quickly and making it more expensive for home buyers which in turn makes the home that they want to purchase NOT affordable. Most home buyers are not aware of these changes in the lending/mortgage industry until they are already in escrow.

FHA loans have very specific requirements for home buyer expenses. These fall into allowable and NON-allowable expenses. Non-allowable expenses are usually paid by the SELLER!

To qualify for an FHA loan, Pasadena home buyers can NOT pay for the following expenses:

  • Sub-Escrow Fee to Title Company
  • ALTA Endorsement Fees
  • Some Inspection Fees
  • Recording Assignment Fees
  • Processing Fees
  • Document Preparation Fees
  • Tax Service Contract
  • Any Messenger Fee including Overnight Delivery
  • Loan Tie-In Fee
  • Bring-Down Fee
  • Title Binder
  • Tax Stamps/City Transfer Tax Charges
  • Homeowner Association Transfer Fees
  • Repairs or work required on FHA appraisal (unless approved in advance by lender in writing)
  • Home Warranty Program - (unless stipulated in escrow instructions and approved by lender in writing)
  • Photo Fee/Photo Inspection Fee
  • Reconveyance Fee
  • Preliminary Change of Ownership Report
  • Commission
  • Transaction Coordination Fees

If you are a Pasadena Home Seller and you receive an offer from an FHA home buyer or are in escrow with an FHA home buyer, please be aware that these fees will most likely come out of YOUR pocket.

FHA loans offer a very viable financing option for many buyers and I think that we will see more home buyers with FHA financing in the coming months, but Pasadena home sellers need to understand the financial impact to them.

Make sure that your Pasadena Real Estate Agent provides you with an estimated closing costs statement so that you know your home sale bottom line.

Wall Street Journal declares that the Housing Crisis is Over

Here we go again... another media proclamation - The Housing Crisis is OVER!

Read all about it HERE

A quick excerpt from the article:

How can this be? For starters, a bottom does not mean that prices are about to return to the heady days of 2005. That probably won't happen for another 15 years. - CYRIL MOULLE-BERTEAUX

I said it before and I will say it again - REAL ESTATE ACTIVITY is LOCAL!!!!

So my questions are?

  1. Do we have a housing crisis now? If so, from whose perspective buyer's or seller's?
  2. And, do you believe that Cyril Moulle-Bereaux's opinion about the market bottoming out applicable to Pasadena real estate?

I'd love to hear your thoughts.

San Marino CA: Crowell Public Library - Before and After

I love the new San Marino Public Library, now known as Crowell Public Library.

Living in San Marino, one of our family's most favored traditions has been our Saturday morning visit to the library. I have to admit that we do not go each Saturday as we used to when the kids were little, but we still try to go as often as we can.

The library always offered a world of never ending mysteries, travel, romances and answers to any questions that I had as a kid and as an adult. Finding a book to read and the anticipation of the read is just one of those little pleasures in life. My hope was to relay my love of reading and the library to my kids and I think I did a pretty good job of it. :-)

As I get a lot of questions from home buyers looking to relocate to San Marino, I thought that it would be great to share a couple of great videos SCBarr about the San Marino library - the old and the construction of the new one.

It's really mind boggling that our new library was built so quickly in just a year or so.

Here's a couple of videos that I think you will enjoy.

This first video was posted on YouTube only a year ago - May 11, 2007. Take a look, it has some nice history of San Marino, as well as some aerials. A nice reminder of the library we had before. Way cool and Kudos to director.

This video captures the Topping Out of the San Marino Library.

Unfortunately, we don't have a video of the new Crowell San Marino Library, but for now here's a photo courtesy of www.Flickr.com and Daryl Chan.
