Colorful Ocean Holidays - Speechless Sundays     We've had gorgeous colors in our sunsets the last few days of the holiday.  Unfortunately, I got to the beach just a little later than I would have liked to for this sunset picture.  Still, I really enjoyed it and hope you will too.   Happy New Year!

 You’ve been handed an offer.  It’s so close to your desired price, but not quite there.         What now?  How do you negotiate your way to the deal you’re looking for?         If you’re using a REALTOR®, they will guide you though the negotiation, providing support documentation and other helpful back-up to justify your price.  But if you’re going it alone, you will have to hone your negotiating skills.         The first step to a successful home negotiation is when you priced your home to begin with.  If you set a fair asking price, you should have the confidence to justify it.          If you overpriced your home (remember…  “so I can come down in the future”), you will have trouble convincing a bona fide buyer to up their offer.         Now, the second step for negotiating is to KN...

 Here’s another moneymaking marketing fact you need to know…   The Way Your Live In A Home, And The Way You SELL A Home Are TWO Very Different Things!         When you’re showcasing your home for sale, it’s going to look very different from the way it looks when you’re living there.  Here are a few tips for showcasing your home for sale:   Ø  First impressions set the tone for a buyer visit, and they’re LASTING!  Approach your home in your car like any buyer would.  Examine the outside as you’re approaching.  How does it look?  Are shrubs away from the home?  Oil in the driveway?  How does the grass and landscaping look?  Cluttered looks detract from the architecture of the home.  A clean, polished landscape says your home is valuable and well-maintained!   Ø  Take a look at your actual...

        I want to reveal four marketing secrets that can help you make thousands more profit from your home.  And the first one is this…   Purchase Decisions Are Emotional, Not Logical         Think about that.  People never buy homes because of logical reasons.  If they did, one four bedroom, two bath home would sell just like any other.   But they don’t.         They don’t because people discriminate by nature.  One home will always appeal to them over another based on their DESIRES.         They buy homes because of the FEELINGS the home gives them.  Nearly everyone buys a home thinking of the LIFESTYLE BENEFITS they’ll get by living there.         Lifestyle benefits are the memories of watching your children play in a safe area.  While getting a good education at local schools.   Wh...

Short Sale vs. Foreclosure In Huntington Harbour, CA One of the toughest decisions facing homeowners in Huntington Harbour these days is whether or not to do a short sale. Most homeowners don’t understand the process, but what’s even scarier is that most real estates don’t either. Many agents tend to shy away from short sales because they don’t understand how they work. #1 – SELECT THE RIGHT AGENT Like all other professions, real estate agents are not created equally! A Huntington Harbour short sale is a very complicated and arduous type of transaction, and most agents just don’t not where to begin. As a seller, YOU MUST SELECT YOUR AGENT CAREFULLY! Choose an agent that is familiar with the process and who has successfully completed at least a couple of short sales preferably with multi...

      Every seller wants to realize as much money as possible when selling his or her home.  The natural inclination is to price your home high, thinking you can always come down in the future.          But a listing price that is too high can be a disaster, and frequently nets the seller LESS money then they ever anticipated—even after paying a real estate commission!          Why is this?          Because buyers will reject your home in favor of other homes in a reasonable price range.  And if that doesn’t frustrate you, think about this: Buyers will use YOUR home to compare and justify the purchase of a similar, but correctly priced home.         But the problem gets worse…         It’s a fact that 96% of all homes are sold by REALTORS®.  So whether you sell your home yourself, or th...

Zip Codes: 92646, 92647, 92648, 92649 People and clients alike keep asking me what’s going on with the market? Is it a good time to buy? Of course all this depends on their situation, but yes, this could be a great time to buy. Interest rates are at historic lows, and home prices have come down to what many people feel are more affordable. Let’s check the facts directly off the MLS.   There were 321 SFR and 201 condo active listings as of November 30, 2011. There were 102 closed sales for both SFR and Condos in November with an average 101 days on the market. How does this compare the same time last year? There were 116 closed sales for SFR and Condos in November with an average of 92 days on the market. 35 properties that sold in November were a result of a distressed state, (NOD, Fore...

Zip Code: 92708 People and clients alike keep asking me what’s going on with the market? Is it a good time to buy? Of course all this depends on their situation, but yes, this could be a great time to buy. Interest rates are their lowest in years, and prices have come down to more affordable levels. Let’s check the facts directly off the MLS. There were 82 SFR and 21 condo active listings as of November 30, 2011. There were 17 closed sales for both SFR and Condos in November with an average 101 days on the market. Last year at this time, there were 24 closed sales with an average of 85 days on the market. It appears that homes are taking longer to sell, which may be the result of many factors. I believe that uncertainty in the economy and employment on shaky footing may be causing reluc...

        One of the biggest mistakes people make when selling homes is they rely solely on “local neighborhood market analysis information” to determine the right price to list their home.         Your local real estate agent shows up with a “canned” analysis they took right off a computer screen.  They typed in a few parameters, and out popped a report showing the homes that sold in your area.          They put it into a fancy folder with their “Colossal Real Estate Company” name on it, and try to pass it off on you.         In most cases, they didn’t view the homes.  They didn’t call anyone.  They don’t know WHY one home sold for $105 a foot, and another sold for $89 a foot.   They don’t know how construction materials, siting, location, or other features have affected each home they j...
