452 Peninsula Dr.
Lake Almanor, Ca
By Melissa Wynn
Since the first pioneer yelled “TIMBER” in the woods log homes have dotted the landscape. Strength, superior insulating qualities and ease of construction made these dwellings the obvious choice for the first non-native inhabitants of the forested Sierra Nevada mountains. Proof of the durability of the log home is often found by hikers who chance upon small log shacks slapped together by the 49ers of the gold rush in the 1800s but still standing today.
Don Sabin, of the now ghost town known as Seneca, built his log home in the summer of 1947 with his buddy Duke. They fell the trees on site with hand saws, notched them with axes and lifted the higher tiers in place using a home made block and tackle system. Mr. Sabin lives these rustic digs year round to this day.
Modern day log homes come in all shapes, sizes and degrees of luxury. Rick and Vickie Nelson live in a shining example on the pristine bank of Lake Almanor’s East Shore. Built in 2002 by Cal Thurber of CST Construction & Electric Inc. Lake Almanor, in conjunction with Precision Craft Log Holes of Meridian Idaho, this 5000+ square foot beauty with lake view deck and built in generator is sure to be impressing passers by a hundred years from now.
The best mountain traditions never change, living simple, lakes and log homes.

Home Ownership Essential to Job Growth and Economy, Say Realtors®
Testifying before a Senate panel last month, National Association of REALTORS® President Ron Phipps told members of Congress that sustainable home ownership must be the goal when considering future federal housing policies.
Phipps said the housing market is starting to see signs of recovery; however, the real issue facing the nation right now is that many Americans can’t find meaningful work to support their families, and housing is essential to creating jobs.
“Home ownership is a pillar of our economy; our research suggests that home sales in this country generate more than 2.5 million private sector jobs in an average year. For every two homes sold, a job is created,” Phipps said.
He added that, while housing alone may not pull America out of this stalled economy, hampering its recovery will severely and negatively impact the nation’s recovery.
“Owning a home contributes to the strength of the nation’s economy and is still one of the best ways for individuals to build long-term wealth; therefore, we need public policies that support home ownership. Making it harder for families to afford safe mortgages does not further the goal of a housing or economic recovery,” he said. “Home buyers need a wide variety of traditionally safe, well-underwritten products with flexible down payment
requirements, said Phipps. “Overly stringent requirements will turn away 10 to 15 percent of otherwise qualified buyers who have a demonstrable ability to repay – that’s approximately 500,000 home sales that won’t happen, further delaying the housing and economic recovery.”
“We need to keep housing first on the nation’s public policy agenda to ensure that housing and national economic recoveries are sustained, and that anyone in this country who aspires to own a home and can afford to do so is not denied the opportunity to build their future through home ownership,” Phipps said.

Raising the Stakes to Reduce Whose Risk?
Some creditworthy borrowers may not be able to obtain mortgages, if Wells Fargo & Co. gets its way. The nation’ s largest mortgage lender is asking U.S. regulators to set a down payment standard of 30 percent for loans that would be exempt from a risk-retention requirement.
Banks would have to retain 5 percent of any loans with down payments of less than 30 percent if those loans are securitized.
To put this in perspective, a 20 percent down payment on a $300,000 home is $60,000. At a level of 30 percent, a borrower would need to produce $90,000.
Banks could still make loans to borrowers with less than 30 percent down, but borrowers with lower down payments would ultimately receive higher interest rates for loans that would be perceived as more risky.
• Taking advantage… According to the 2010 NAR Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, the typical recent home buyer made an 8 percent down payment. Talk to a Realtor® about how increasing down payment requirements could affect home buyers in your area.
Home Ownership: The Right Move According to the results of an NAR survey conducted by Harris Interactive, a substantial majority of home owners as well as renters agree that owning a home is a smart long-term decision.
In fact, 95 percent of owners and 72 percent of renters believe that over a period of several years, it makes more sense to own a home. Of those home owners surveyed, 93 percent are happy with their decision to own, and would buy again.

Does It Cost Less to Live in Rural Areas?
It costs about 16 percent less, on average, to live in rural rather than in urban areas. This implies that the official poverty rate overstates rural economic hardship compared with that in urban areas. This study uses data on food insecurity and hunger collected by the Census Bureau for USDA to estimate differences in the cost of living between rural and urban areas and is reflective of the 2000 census.

In November, the National Association of Real Estate reported that average interest rates for long-term mortgages had risen for the first time in two months according to the U.S. Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp.
For the week ending Nov. 18, the average interest rate for 30-year fixed-rate contracts climbed off a record low of 4.17 percent to 4.39 percent with 0.9 points, while average interest rates for 15-year contracts rose from 3.57 percent to 3.76 percent with 0.7 points.
Rates for 15-year fixed-rate mortgages a year before stood at 4.32 percent. Rates for 30-year mortgages a year before averaged 4.83 percent.
Freddie Mac Vice President and Chief Economist Frank Nothaft said rates rose along with October’s retail sales report, which showed gains twice what economists had predicted. “The housing market is showing some potential gains as well,” he said, with builder confidence rising in November to the strongest level since June.
