California Housing Market Picks Up In June

In Southern California, housing sales jumped up 11.7% percent from the May numbers which is about twice the normal bump up for the spring escrows that finish in the summer.   Prices for that same area edged up almost 2% for the month, but are still down compared to last June.

“California’s sluggish housing market showed some signs of life in June, with both Southern California and the Bay Area notching sales increases from May to June. June sales in the state increased 9.7% from May, with 38,975 newly built and previously owned houses and condominiums bought by shoppers, according to San Diego research firm DataQuick.

That figure was down 11.3% from June 2010, the last month to experience a surge of deals fueled by the now-expired popular federal tax credit for buyers.”

What is my home worth? And how do you know?

Yesterday I showed property in the Lunada Bay neighborhood of Palos Verdes Estates.   We viewed property priced from $1,400,000 to $2,200,000.   The prospective buyers especially love the Lower Lunada Bay area with its flat streets and close proximity to the Pacific Ocean.   After showing six homes my business partner and I then previewed homes for another client.   Last weekend we showed 14 homes.   Last week another buyer viewed nine homes.   When a seller asks me what his home is worth I’m able make my guesstimate based on up to the minute knowledge of the local market.

When it is time to move beyond the “guestimate” and zero in on a list price I consult the comparable sales.   Since I have personally viewed them, either from showing or previewing, I have detailed information about the condition, floorplan and other amenities.   The appraisers who establish a value for lenders do not have as much information as an agent who is out in the field traipsing through home after home on a weekly basis.   We know whether the remodeled kitchen was a do it yourself project or a high-end professional job.   Appraisers call me on a regular basis to ask questions about sold comps they can no longer view.

One of the chief values of a real estate agent is market knowledge.   If you do not know the market, and this means more than knowing the numbers, it is difficult to establish value.   Seller need their agent to possess intimate knowledge of sales in their neighborhood.   Buyers need their agent to advise them on     neighborhood values and recent sales.   This is not information that can be assimilated by driving by a property or studying the numbers.   It is accumulated knowledge.  

Yes, we unlock doors, but making sense of the nuances of the market and providing clients with invaluable knowledge is the key to selling smart and buying wise.

It May Not Be Spring, But the Housing Market is Heating Up in Palos Verdes

Interest in Palos Verdes properties is picking up.   Last week Norma Toering & Team opened escrow on a Redondo Beach property.   Next week we will close escrow on a Redondo Beach condo.   The weekend found us busy showing Palos Verdes and Torrance properties.   Today there was a mad dash to Long Beach to drop off keys to an upcoming listing and then off to show a view home in Rancho Palos Verdes.   We have the South Bay area of Southern California  covered!

Two new listings should be ready to hit the market in late February or early March.   One buyer is heading back to China and another one will arrive South Africa in a  few weeks.   Thank heavens for my Google Calendar and comfortable showing shoes!

 If you’re thinking of buying this spring, don’t wait too long to hop off the indecisive fence and begin your house hunting odyssey.    With the right guide, it will be an enjoyable journey.  Consumer confidence is on the rise, and interest rates and home prices may very well follow suit.

We’ll make a great team:   You know what you’re looking for, we know the market and where to find what you want.   Let’s get together and make it happen!

FAQ in Real Estate–How Will I Know When We Hit Bottom?

How will I know when we hit the bottom?”   That was my client’s question as he mulled over the pros and cons of submitting an offer.   “You won’t know until after it happens,” was my response.

It will take months for the numbers to be totaled, tallied and analyzed. Graphs and charts will pinpoint the low by the year, month, and probably the day it occurred.   Meanwhile, the home that was perfect for his family, his commute and within walking distance to the elementary school for his children will house another family.

The waiting game is a gamble.   Yes, maybe the prices will drop.   Yes, maybe a better house will come on the market.   Yes, maybe the interest rates will go down.   But life changes drive the real estate market.

My top five clients at the moment are stirring up my real estate activity due to these life changes:

  1. Birth of twins!   Suddenly the romantic cottage is no longer an option.   Up-sizing is a necessity.
  2. Career advancement.   It’s an opportunity of a lifetime in another state and will require uprooting and moving.
  3. Retirement. Can travel be far behind?   I’m searching for a condo and she’s checking out cruises.
  4. Divorce.   Need I say more?
  5. Debt.   His company was sold, and he’s unemployed and saddled with a large mortgage hit each month.

Change is constant and it is a powerful force in the real estate world.   Life does not stop for a down market.   The investors may be taking a break, the lenders may be restructuring their loan policies, the flippers are not as plentiful, but to quote the familiar, life goes on.
