  • Chickens YES! Goats NO! Welcome to Coastal San Diego

    Posted Under: General Area in Carlsbad, Property Q&A in Carlsbad  |  March 24, 2013 9:06 AM  |  385 views  |  No comments
    A friend of mine has Chickens, Ducks, & a Turkey on his land in Carlsbad, CA!  

    GOOD: Good news is that most locations in North County San Diego let you have birds such as Chickens, Ducks, & other birds!   

    BAD:  I found an house with goat door knocking!  Sorry  Encinitas 92024 does not allow goats!

    UGLY: Driving to Palm Springs for Odyssey of the Mind (creative problem-solving competition for kids), I saw small home with one very large Bison.  You always need to check to see how many horses, cows, chickens, other birds, and animals are allowed.  

    BOTTOMLINE: Check with me or your local government about rules about animals.  Contact: JD.Morris@KW.com or call/text 858-869-9483

    UT San Diego: Chickens are part of the family! Families are finding that checkens can be sweet, low-key pets. Read More: http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2013/mar/21/chickens-pets/

    If you need any information about Calrsbad 92009 / 92011, Encinitas 92024, Solana Beach 92075, Del Mar 92014, or Rancho Santa Fe, CA let me know!

  • o Remodel or Not to Remodel: Seven Questions Homeowners Need to Ask Before Commencing Construction

    If you live in San Diego, let us share with you how a 203k home loan can help you remodel. Contact me at 858-869-9483 if your a talker or my wife loves e-mail at SMorris@LuxeGlobal.com anytime.

    And now for some good information on remodeling:

    “Remodeling isn’t for everyone, and many times it could be a downright bad decision,” says Dan Fritschen, founder ofRemodelormove.com. “It’s well worth your time to pause and consider what your proposed project entails, and whether the it’s worth the time, energy, and money you’ll end up pouring into it.”

    The “Should I Remodel?” Online Calculator can help you make that determination. It asks 15 questions and provides a recommendation based on the homeowner’s goals.

    The calculator can be found at http://www.remodelormove.com/should-you-remodel and takes only a minute to complete – and is free to use.
