    One of downtown San Diegos neighborhoods filled with culture, charm and a sense of community is the Little Italy neighborhood at the northern edge of San Diego Bay. Once the place of industry for fisherman and the home of many Italian families that fished the waters, Little Italy today is now a village teeming with specialty shops, dining, art galleries and more. Hanging proudly over India Street, is the recognizable Little Italy sign that residents and tourists alike enjoy as a delightful accent to the areas landscape. Amici Park, lined with cypress trees and featuring a bocce ball court, adjoins the rebuilt Washington Elementary School, providing a playground for students and open space for the community. The neighborhood also hosts a variety of annual arts and holiday festivals, including ArtWalk and Festa. In addition to the recreational opportunities, Little Italy also offers plenty of options in living including condominiums, apartment complexes and single-family homes. A handful of new condominium projects are planned for the area. India & Beech, with a planned height of 29 stories and 50 residential units

    with one, two and three bedroom floorplans, is also expected to have nearly 10% of the building space dedicated to retail space. Another smaller condominium development with plans for just 40 units is the Riva Trigoso, designed by Martinez + Cutri architects. With 50,000 square feet dedicated to residential and 11,000 planned for office space, it may be a good option for a live/work lifestyle. Pier, a larger development with 247 units, will offer studio, one and two bedroom floorplans. An estimated completion date for these three developments hasnt been announced yet. In addition to housing, two other projects are planned for the Little Italy neighborhood. Monarch School, an educational facility, and Waterfront

    Park. The park is a visionary plan to transform the parking lots near the County Administration Center into a lushly landscaped area filled with trees, grass and a fountain.

    MORTGAGE PAYMENT RELIEF FOR ELIGIBLE MILITARY To aid and support military families struggling because of a death or injury of a service member, mortgage giant Fannie Mae has announced a program to give these families a reprieve on their mortgage payments.

    Fannie Mae says it will reduce or suspend the mortgage payment for up to six months. They also announced that they will suspend reporting to credit bureaus for up to six months in an effort to minimize the impact of the borrowers credit score. Fannie Mae is the largest buyer of our nations residential mortgages. Its estimated that they own, or are guaranteeing, over $3 trillion in home loans. To learn if theyre eligible for the program, military members or surviving spouses can call 877.645.4566.

    MAKING REAL ESTATE HEADLINES: RESALE FEES A bill has been introduced called the Home Equity Protection Act of 2010. In it, is language seeking to amend the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) currently in place by prohibiting the collection of Resale Fees.Many condo and high-rise developments add a Resale Fee into the sales contract. Typically, its a fee thats due from the seller to the HOA when the homeowner sells. Funds to the HOA are used for common-area maintenance or for the associations reserve fund either one benefitting the HOA and thus the property value. However, there are some new developers that are adding in a Resale Fee, typically calculated as 1% of the sales price, every time the house is sold. Often for up to 99 years. The problem is, this new Resale Fee isnt used by the HOA for upkeep or improvements. Its simply money paid to the developer to boost their revenues for years to come.In addition to the Home Equity Protection Act of 2010, the

    Federal Housing Finance Agency is also working to stop the use of such Resale Fees. In their proposal, they outline a plan to keep Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the two largest mortgage companies, from insuring or purchasing mortgages that include such fees. If youre considering buying or selling, be sure to talk with your REALTOR and learn if Resale Fees, and who they benefit, will be an issue for you.

    FORECLOSURE BILL VETO President Obama plans to veto a bill using a process known as a pocket veto. This will be the first veto of his administration. The veto of the bill is intended to make it harder for banks to foreclose on homeowners, giving borrowers an opportunity and more time to work out their loan default issues.
