Trends in Real Estate – Second Home Reasons to buy a vacation home

Who are the buyers?
Traditionally, there are two demographic groups that purchase vacation properties. The first is families with young children, who choose sites that combine relaxation and recreation possibilities for adults with fun activities for the kids.

The second group is that of people with grown children and grandchildren. They often start spending  more and more time at their vacation place, where they enjoy a more comfortable weather  than in their primary residence place, and the company of their families that come to visit. “Ironically, I see my children and grandchildren more often when are here in Santa Barbara, than in the city where we all live. Whenever we are here, at least one of our children comes to visit for the weekend with their families. The kids swim in the pool at Bajamar, the gentlemen play golf, us  ladies  go for breakfast to Ensenada. ”

Million Dollar Savings at Palacio Del Mar

A look at places such as Vancouver Canada, Miami Florida, and downtown San Diego’s luxury developments and cost of living compared to Baja’s Palacio del Mar.

Million Dollar Savings At Palacio Del Mar

Million Dollar Savings At Palacio Del Mar

Luxury can be found with any landscape as a background, it all depends on the individual’s preferences, extravagance and needs. Granite countertops, high ceiling windows, hardwood floors, concierge service spacious closets among other details give luxury residences the finishing touches.

Every luxury development offers a certain combination of amenities which sets them apart from the rest, some of which now seem to be standard are: pool whether it be infinity or indoor, workout facilities, event rooms, steam room and Jacuzzis. In addition to these, Palacio currently offers several other amenities resulting in a combination not easily found elsewhere: tennis and basketball courts, full service spa, business center, game room, movie theater, lobby library, bistro, convenience store and beach access and best of all, a shuttle that will pick you up from San Diego airport, drive you to Ensenada, take you grocery shopping and even drive you to Tijuana.

Several luxury developments in Vancouver such as The Qube and Harbourside Park, present fewer amenities than Palacio, though they offer storage; with Harbourside Park also having guest suites. The Beach Club, in Miami Florida, has cabanas, event catering and beach and poolside service. The Metropolitan, Park Place, Meridian, and Electra in downtown San Diego offer fewer amenities than Palacio but with different combinations, as an example they may have a movie theater but no tennis courts. Every development will have a different view for their resident to enjoy, in downtown San Diego there is the bay, Petco Park or street view, Vancouver has the marina, the Pacific and probably a view of the mountains depending on preference and location, Miami has also street view and the Atlantic; Palacio offers the majestic Pacific with beautiful sunsets telling the coming of the end of the day.

Baja California Mexico moving ahead with new border crossing. Compilied By: Miguel Sedano.

While U.S. funding to finish the expansion of the San Ysidro port of entry is not yet allocated, Mexico appears on track to complete its new southbound border crossing.

Mexico is to finish construction in 2012 of the crossing, known as El Chaparral, as well as new bridges that will be needed for the transborder traffic, said Mexican Congressman Gastón Luken on Friday during the 21st summit of the South County Economic and Development Council.Mexico New Border 2012

Luken, who represents Baja California, said that Mexico has allocated $55 million to finish the project as planned. The funds came from fees collected at Mexican commercial border crossings.

“The expansion project should be seen as an investment not an expense,” Luken said about the San Ysidro expansion.

The remodeling and expansion project is to be done in three phases, which together are to cost $577 million.

Phase one is under way which involves the demolition of the existing port of entry building and expansion of traffic lanes from 24 to 62.

The second phase, which is to start in 2013, involves improving the pedestrian processing facilities.

And in the third phase, the I-5 southbound lanes will be shifted to accommodate the expansion of northbound lanes. The new southbound lanes are to connect to El Chaparral.

The total San Ysidro project was to be completed by 2016 but that date is now in doubt because the U.S. Congress has not yet funded phases two and three. When pressed as to what a potential funding delay means, project managers say that the expansion will be finished, but later than planned.

What’s more, a potential delay would also affect the planned U.S. expansions of the Otay Mesa and Calexico border crossings.

The annual summit drew about 400 people to the San Diego Convention Center to hear a variety of leaders and analysts discuss the region’s economy. One panel featured elected officials from all levels of government in California, as well as Luken, speaking about “The Future of the Border Region.”

They all spoke about the importance of securing the funds to complete the San Ysidro project.

“Reducing the wait times should be the priority,” stressed Assemblyman Ben Hueso, D-San Diego, during the panel discussion.

He said that reducing wait times by one hour per day would generate an additional $7 billion in revenue per year for San Diego County.

For his part, San Diego Councilman David Alvarez said he recently visited Washington, D.C. as part of a regional delegation that included officials from both sides of the border, including Luken, to lobby members of Congress to approve the funds to complete the expansion.

“There are no funds yet, but we must make the effort to raise awareness of the importance of transforming the San Ysidro border crossing,” said Alvarez, who represents District 8.

U.S. Rep. Bob Filner, D-San Diego, said, “many people would die to live in a region like this one.” That’s why an investment should be made to make traveling between both countries easier, something that would spur economic development in both countries, he said.

Sales Start With A Bang At Santa Barbara In Bajamar

By Julia Simms

Two Homes Sold in Santa Barbara in Less than One Month

Since taking over sales and marketing at Santa Barbara in Bajamar less than one month ago, Baja Real Estate group has notched two home sales, according to Broker Max Katz.

Katz says the timing is right to reinvest in Baja and the coastal development of Santa Barbara as retirees are starting to look at Northern Baja once again as the place to retire.

“We are bringing a renewed vision and new home prices to the development just as real estate sales start to pick up in the Baja region,” he said. “Homeowners love the exclusivity of Santa Barbara and the lifestyle that Baja allows them to live  – one they wouldn’t be able to afford in the United States.”

Santa Barbara is a 104-unit condominium development within the gates of Bajamar, a 600-home planned community and golf course fondly called “Pebble Beach of the South” by American expatriates living in the area. Bajamar is 15 minutes miles south of Rosarito and 35 minutes north of Ensenada in the Riviera Baja region.

“I am not surprised that the first two homes sold so quickly at Santa Barbara,” said real estate agent Roy Warfield, who has been actively selling real estate in San Diego since 1995 and in Northern Baja since 2007. “I see the opportunities that Baja has to offer for people looking to live on the water at a fraction of the price of the United States.”

One of the Santa Barbara buyers, Tim DeBerry, agrees.
