Knowing the Right Time to Buy is when you find your dream and have the assets and credit to do so. Don't risk losing the right home trying to estimate the prices vs. rates and market fluctuations. When preparing for your home search find your Buyers Agent and Mortgage resource.
Focus on the needs and wants of the buyer, yourself, getting many 3rd party opinions can sometimes slow down the process, but definitely get major decision makers involved when buying.
Plan ahead by finding areas within reason of your budget and needs and wants. Do your research along with asking your buyers agent to help with research and pricing strategies. The buyers agent goal is to find you something in your budget.
Don't wait until the last minute to get paperwork in order, when house hinting you will want to be ready to write the offer, show proof of funds and have pre-approval.

There is no doubt these days having drought tolerant plants is the trend and almost the law. Now with watering restrictions in San Diego it is time to think about drought tolerant landscaping for your home or garden. Increasing the home values can be done by having a professional do your entire landscape with a nice upgraded drought tolerant theme.
San Diego real estate includes several different types of terrain and yard types, so check with your association for rules if you have one. Also this would be a good time to look at making your home and boundary fire safe! Two in one!
Native and drought tolerant plants are important for this region, not just because they are water efficient, but because they are the cornerstone of biological diversity and the foundations of the native ecosystems. Using “California-friendly” plants for everything from backyard gardens to wide scale re-vegetation is a positive practice that will benefit the local habitat and all residents who live here.I've included some links for you guys to check out involving drought tolerant landscaping ideas for San Diego real estate.
With our current climate conditions of increasing warmth and less moisture, more and more Californians are becoming interested in replacing high-maintenance, lawns that require a lot of water and fertilizers, with water-conserving plants. These can be anything from ground covers to a field of meadow flowers to stately oak trees – they all provide the benefits of lower water needs, reduced maintenance requirements, restored soil health, increased diversity that attracts birds and butterflies, as well as the aesthetic beauty of blending in with the natural landscapes.
Here is Lowes version of drought tolerant landscape ideas and pretty good, plus you can get most stuff there!
This gardenista lady I found also has a pretty cool blog and I included her ideas there in that link!
Pintetrest also had a lot of photos which helps plan your garden or style.
I hope these were some good ideas to help with your drought tolerant styles and making your home a nice water friendly environmentally sound place!
