In just the last few weeks, the higher end of the real estate market in Newport Beach, Corona Del Mar, and Newport Coast has just gone flat!  In lower price ranges, it's a Seller's Market with multiple offers and bidding wars.  But in the over $1 million price ranges it has become an extreme Buyers market with several months supply of inventory.   Even with painful price reductions, the Buyers just seem to have gone away. Activity was at it's peak in February through April this year.  Inventory was extremely low and demand was extremely high.    That was the time to sell.   So if you're left holding the house you wanted to sell, it might be a good time to Lease it out and wait to Sell during the next rise in the market. $7000 to $10,000 per month is the sweet spot for our area.   There ...

Balboa Island Summer 2016 is HOT STUFF in California with Lauren Selinsky Realtor (R) It was a beautiful day in Downtown Balboa Island, an area in Newport Beach. What's so great about our beautiful town of Balboa Island?  is there is so much to do! FOR STARTERS: You can go sit outside and have breakfast or lunch at Wilma's Patio. You can even sit at the counter area by yourself or with a friend and order a mimosa. I did today- at noon, when I met up with a friend, Christie. I was actually on hold with the BRE (Bureau of Real Estate to check on license date for Brokers exam while parking and arriving at Wilmas-that's another blog) and finally had an amazing lunch to go with that mismosa. Then, walked over an hour, close to 3 miles. Amazing how much walking  you can do when you are in goo...

The Young Open House Visitors Who Made My Day Today, I hosted open house at my nice listing on 16 Canyon Island in Newport Beach when two young ladies whose combined age was probably a couple of years shy of twenty, walked in and asked if it was okay to see the open house.   I said of course.  They politely asked if I wanted shoes off or for them to wear shoe covers.  I answered and they toured the property.  They gave me feedback on the property and compared it to others they'd seen.   The young ladies were more polite and thoughtful than some (or many) adults who visit open house. I'd given each of the girls a pop-up calendar, which they really liked.  They left the open house and returned a few minutes later with a friend.  I asked if they needed another calendar.  "Yes, please."  Th...

I was showing property yesterday at the beach, and the sun had almost gone down, so after I was finished, I wanted to see if I could see Catalina Island in the distance. It was still very pretty, and there were many on the beach enjoying the sunset. It was cool and windy.This photo was taken at 43rd Street, in Newport Beach. I have a listing there for lease at 123 43rd Street, and it is in a great location.I take photos, and then I look backto see what I have taken. I used my iPhone 6, and have it set up to automatically import to my computer which is rather convenient!Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!

Are you considering selling your home? Prior to selling it is ideal to get your home in tip top condition. Be sure to address any past maintenance items, or any deferred maintenace. Very important considerations are plumbing items, water leaks can lead to other issues that any buyer would want to know about that.What is the condition of the roof of the house? Has it been replaced, repaired? If so, by who and when, having those documents in order will be helpful to any buyers who may have questions about the roof.Do you have any pests? It is very common in California to see termites, so that inspection is often done. Termites can also be very destructive and if there is active infestation, that may need to be remediated prior to selling.Buyers often ask about the square footage of the ho...

Not everybody excels at setting goals much less achieving them, and part of the problem with that, I suspect, is they don't know how to develop their imagination. Or maybe they're just too busy doing stuff to think ahead and wonder what might come next or ponder what they would like to do. I've always been one of these people with a creative imagination, and I often develop scenarios in my head that manage to come true, which is what I call achieving my goal setting. Goal setting is a personal challenge to me, and I love meeting challenges, winning them.It starts usually with small goals. This morning I'm thinking about when I drove from Colorado to Newport Beach to live in the 1970s. I carried images in my head of what life would be like moving from the mountains to the ocean. One of t...

The following are some considerations for protecting your home whether or not you lease a property, or you are the owner. There are some who watch for signs that a property has been left, or when people go on vacation.1. If you are posting you vacation on social media sites, you might want to wait until you come home, or have someone staying in your property in your absence. Otherwise you might be alerting others that your property is vacant.2. Review your home owner's insurance policy, and determine what is covered.3. If you lease your property, make sure you have renters insurance to cover the contents.4. Neighborhood watch programs are really important and if your neighborhood does not have one, you can establish one in your area. Also, let neighbors know if you are leaving. You can ...
