The Internet giant is increasing its stake in the solar home power business with a $75 million “initial investment” to buy and own solar-panel generators on roofs of thousands of homes, The Wall Street Journal reports. 

Google is investing in Clean Power Finance, a start-up company that matches solar-panel installers with investors willing to buy rooftop solar-panel systems. “With Google’s investment, solar-panel installers can find home owners who want solar panels on their roofs but don’t want to have to pay several thousand dollars to own the system,” The Wall Street Journal article notes.

If you are thinking of buying, current rates combined with the last several years of falling house values have affordability at all-time highs!

Southern California’s real estate market remained geared towards home buyer's in the month of September. Prices have trended down slightly over the last couple of months, but it appears that prices over the last few weeks have stabilized, at least temporarily.  We are hopeful this trend will continue and establish a floor for Carlsbad home prices.

As of Sept 22, 2011, the median price for a single family residential home in Carlsbad held at $699,900, with an average of 144 active days on the Carlsbad real estate market.  While home prices have held just below the $700K point, the days on market are beginning to climb; which is not a receipe for continued pricing strength.  While Carlsbad home price action has been essentially flat,

Daily Real Estate News | Monday, September 19, 2011

While lenders have resumed foreclosures after putting them on hold as a result of an investigation into "robo-signing" a year ago, snags remain in the process.

1010data Inc. and CoreLogic Inc. report a drop in the number of foreclosed homes liquidated to 3.6 percent in June from 5.7 percent in August 2010. The number of homes entering the foreclosure pipeline tops the number being sold by banks.

The delays help home owners hang onto their properties longer and aid the economy in the short term, but make it difficult for new buyers to close on foreclosed properties.
