Old San Jose Single Family Homes Plan
Old San Jose Single Family Homes Plan

There are more choices for luxury living on the St.Johns at Old San Jose. Single family homes will be built on north side on the entrance road, with condos and townhomes currently selling on the south side of the site. The new single family home offerings will make Old San Jose the first fully diversified development on the river since the Epping Forest community was established. Waiting lists are starting to form, as the prospect of living on the St. Johns in a planned developmnent has been the province of only an elite few up to this point. In particular, the waterfront sites with docks will be highly coveted property. The new site plans presents 26 single family home sites with five of those directly on the river, with the option of a boat dock/lift.

Assumable Mortgage

An interesting idea comes to the surface from the “Mandelman Matters” blog, in a posting by Attorney John Deal: Make more mortgages assumable

Deal suggests that this freeing up of existing mortgages to be assumed so new buyers can enter the market could open up the floodgates and add possibly trillions of dollars of liquidity to the housing market almost immediately. Essentially, it’s recycling for mortgages. One legislative change that would have to take place is to amend an old piece of legislation called the Garn-St. Germain Act, which would result in the suspension of enforcement of due-on-sale clauses in residential mortgages.


Hope for Architecture - The Adams House

Hope for Architecture - The Adams House

If you bought a 2,500 square foot home that cost you $400,000, you’ve bought into the American dream at about $160-per-foot. If you‘re in your forties, there’s no way to tell what your home will look like down the road, but you can be assured that by 2052, if the house is still standing, just about everything about your home will have changed or been replaced.   You’re home may be beautiful and functional, but it was not built to be “sustainable”.

“Contemporary” is a state of mind. “Modern” all depends on which decade you happened to be in, or perhaps which decade you were born in.

Traditional means “elegant” to some of us, or just plain “old and decaying,” depending on your outlook on houses, and perhaps your outlook on life, Dr. Freud would say.  If you had real money in the 80s, you lived in a 4000 square foot angular split level, with real wood siding. That was contemporary.
