Nothing lights up the Christmas season like the glow of holiday lights as you drive down the street. And when neighbors get together to deck the entire block, it is really a sight to see. Keeping with the holiday tradition, neighborhoods throughout San Diego country coordinate their decorations and provide visitors with stunning spectacles.

San Diego County has been previously listed on real estate data site Redfin’s list of the best cities for a holiday drive. “Christmas Card Lane” in Rancho Penasquitos is just one example of an entire community embracing the holiday spirit.

Fairway Village in Carmel Mountain Ranch ha a collection of over 85 homes decorated to the nines. El Cajon, Fallbrook and Mission Hills all have beautiful Christmas light drives. In Poway, “The Griswald’s” (of the famed Vacation movies) is a major attraction in the area as well.

This Christmas, conforming no-point 30-year fixed mortgage rates are averaging 4.625 percent, 15-year rates near 4.0 percent and the 5-year ARM averaging 4.375 percent.

Santa Baby

Posted by Mehran Aram on Mon, Dec 24, 2018 @ 05:12 AM

Santa baby, just slip the papers under the tree;
For me;
Been an awful long escrow;
Santa baby, so hurry to the notary tonight;

Think of all the open houses I've missed;
Think of all the deals that I did resist;
Next year I could be as good;
If you’ll just check off my repair list;

Santa baby, I want a good rate;
So really, don’t wait;
Been an angel all year;
Santa baby, hurry and lock in that rate tonight;

Santa honey, one little thing I really need;
The deed;
To my brand new home;
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight;

Conforming no-point 30-year fixed mortgage rates are averaging 4.625 percent, 15-year rates are near 4.00 percent and the 5-year ARM is averaging 4.375 percent.
