Greetings from Jennifer
Ross - Realtor
just returned from a trip to Cabo San Lucas. We stayed at The
Grand Mayan Resort located at the tip of the Baja Peninsula on
the Sea of Cortez. We were pleasantly surprised at the tiny
town of San Jose del Cabo with much more authenticity and within
walking distance of our resort. The Bisbee Marlin tournament
concluded during our stay with the Grand Marlin weighing in at
407lbs. The overall purse for the winners was $2.9
million, with second place winner taking home nearly $1 million for
his catch! Snorkeling was spectacular, with a wide variety of
fish. A fun trip overall!
Que le vaya bien,

News & Views
We all know how lucky we are to live in San Diego. Well,
that was verified in a new survey from Men's Health magazine, which
selected San Diego as the luckiest town in the United States. The
magazine ranked 100 cities on a number of criteria including the most
lottery and sweepstakes winners, the most hole-in-ones on golf
courses, fewest lightning strikes, the least amount of deaths from
falling objects, and the lowest debt due to playing the lottery and
The confidence of homebuilders in the West region rose
significantly this month, rising to the highest level since August
2007. "Builder confidence regained some ground in October due to
modest improvements in buyers' interest in select markets where
economic recovery is starting to take hold and where foreclosure
activity has remained comparatively subdued," said Bob Nielsen,
chairman of the National Association of Home Builders, which released
the report. Other regions saw modest growth well below what we saw in
this area. Welcome to the world of economic cycles. It is just a
matter of time -- I think sooner rather than later -- before we start
to see measurable increases in home buying activity and prices.
Another positive sign for the housing market comes from
the BuildFax Remodeling Index, which rose last month to its highest
level in history. The index has slowly but steadily increased for 22
consecutive months. "As mortgage rates hit record lows, it is
apparent that millions of Americans are refinancing their homes and
using some of their new monthly savings to reinvest in their homes
with remodeling projects," said Joe Emison of BuildFax.
Also out this morning is news from the Commerce
Department showing new home construction activity rose by 15 percent
in September, rising to a 17-month high. The biggest part of the
increase was in the area of multifamily construction, such as
apartment building, where activity jumped 53.4 percent, the highest
level in three years. Construction of single-family, detached homes
rose just 1.7 percent. This is in line with recent forecasts
suggesting density will be the trend for home construction for years
Immediate Home Improvement
through Feng Shui
you're looking to make some quick improvements to the environment in
your home, the following list of practical Feng Shui cures
is at your service:
- Place an energetic fountain near your
front door. The flowing energy of the
water symbolizes cash, which helps more of the green stuff come
your way. Get ready to enjoy more cash flow and connections with
key people thanks to this simple cure.
- Clear the entryway to your home. Let
the chi (energy) flow right into your home and life by ridding
your home's front entry of obstacles. Such things as looming
plants or vines, old newspapers, bikes, and toys in your front
path may limit the amount of energy entering your home. Clear
out anything behind your door for even more benefits.
- Make sure your home encourages learning. Put
books where you can see them when you come in the front door to
stimulate learning in both you and your children.
- Get rid of unwanted frustrations by fixing
broken objects. Make sure your front door is
in good working order. It shouldn't scrape the floor or squeak,
and the doorknob, hinges, and locks should all be secure. This
cure allows you to release your frustrations and anxieties and
smoothes your life path.
- Spice up your love life with plants in the
bedroom. Place three or nine new
plants in your bedroom to enliven the energy of the room, adding
hope and cheer. (If the plants have pink flowers, this cure will
be even stronger!)
- Position your bed to feel safe, loved, and
great. Place your bed in the Commanding Position
of your bedroom. This spot is the one farthest from the door but
where you're still able to see the doorway and anyone
approaching while you're lying in the bed. Placing your bed in
the Commanding Position allows you to be stronger, calmer, and
- Block drains to keep dollars from draining
out of your pockets. To keep your funds from being
drained, keep your bathroom doors closed, hang full-length
mirrors on the outsides of your bathroom doors, and keep your
drains closed when not in use (cover the sink drain, stop the
tub, and keep the toilet lid closed).
- Encourage helpful people in your life by
hanging a pleasant-sounding wind chime. The
sound of a metal wind chime hung in the right-front area of your
home, office, or bedroom activates more people to help you and
gets you more help from the people who are already at your side.
- Boost your career with a better desk
position. Position your desk
cater-corner to and facing the office or cube door (even if you
don't actually have a door in your workspace). If you can't turn
your desk to face the door, arrange a mirror on your desk or
wall so you can see who's coming. This adjustment helps you
encounter more opportunities, go further in your field, and lose
