Ladera Ranch real estate has been experiencing a surge in buyers over the past 3 months and although prices are not yet pushing upward, multiple offers are surfacing on a number of homes.  When markets hit bottom, this is a normal occurence that signifies buyers feel there is value in their minds for the homes at these lows.  That is exactly what has begun in markets under the $1,000,000 range.  In the guard gated community of Covenant Hills, the verdict is still out these luxury homes.  Lots of inventory is still available in the higher price ranges, with little movement.  These homes should push downward on prices some more with foreclosures in this area closing at rock bottom numbers and many short sales available. Where we go from here is anyone's guess at this time.  With inventory...

Incentives are nice.  They are dandy.  Sometimes they are effective, right?!?  So the question I have for bloggers who want to comment on this post is - "What incentives do you offer that truly distinguish you from the competition in your local marketplace?" I recently saw in an Orange County CA home magazine a builder giving away a $78,000 BMW 650i with the purchase of a home.  It caught my eye, but it didnt make me want to buy the house.  I was actually thinking about how its kinda dumb to finance a $78K car over 30 years. At my firm, Homemade Design, we strive to offer incentives that: are appropriate for the target audience (deliver real value) are novel in the marketplace (good attention getter) make an emotional connection with the buyer (beyond dollars and sense)  Please comment ...

A Ladera Ranch Orthodontist is thinking outside the box and I dig it!  Dr. Harold Barkate is hosting a candy buy back program from 3 to 5 p.m. on Monday, November 3rd.  For every pound of candy a child brings in, Dr. Barkate will pay $1. Go to his Ladera Ranch office at 800 Corporate Drive, Suite #260.  The candy will be donated to military families stationed at Camp Pendleton.  Hopefully it will be spread out so we aren't destroying their teeth either. Not sure if I'll get my kids to bite off on the idea but I'm going to give it a shot.  I may have to do my annual pilfering of their stash before we take it in though.  :) Originally Posted on OC Real Estate Voice

With the extensive media coverage, I'm surprised that I'm having an issue with the level of patience I'm experiencing on my Mission Viejo Short Sale.  Both the agent and the buyers are disappointed that I can't give them a firm response time - really?!  Come now. I listed the property and within 4 days, I had 4 offers.  I promptly put it in back up (I hate listings that sit collecting offers and still show 'Active' but that's another conversation).  We submitted with the bank.    It's been 6 weeks - the appraisal was just completed.  It's likely another 30 days before we hear something.  Sometimes they go faster - sometimes they don't.  Sometimes they never close. For example, over the weekend I pulled Short Sale history in Ladera Ranch.  Currently there are 40 Active Short Sale listing...
