SAN DIMAS REAL ESTATE MARKET WATCH - AUGUST 6-12, 2011    Market Watch       New Listing (14)   Price Change (16)   Back On Market (5)   Backup Offer (2)   Expired (4)   Pending (5)   Sold (7)         Okay, so I truly thought that SAN DIMAS would be as slow as some of the other neighboring cities.  I reasoned that maybe people are getting a bit nervous because of the issues with the federal budget and the downgrade in our nation's credit rating.  The financial institutions have been hit as well and I think people are unsure of what will come of all this in the near future.  It makes sense for yet another slow down, if you think about it logically.  (YA, metrying to be logical!) Anyway, there were 14 new listings on the market.  Moving along at a great clip.  Seven have sold which means ...

HIGHS AND LOWS - SAN DIMAS , AUGUST 10, 2011 Okay, so here are the SAN DIMAS Highs and Lows for today, August 10, 2011.   SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCES: LOWEST:                             $189,900 HIGHEST:                             $1,850,000 AVERAGE:                           $399,900 # LISTINGS:                         139 ON MARKET SOLD THIS WEEK:               6 What this means to you: You have more information so you can make an informed decicion on whether SAN DIMAS is a good decision for your family and if the prices are within your grasp. The other thing you can take away from this is the saturation rate.  The saturation rate is determined by the amount of sale in a week and the number of listings on the market.  So in this case, there are 139 homes currently listed.  If you divi...

LA VERNE REAL ESTATE MARKET WATCH - JULY 23-29, 2011    Market Watch       New Listing (14)   Price Change (15)   Back On Market (2)   Backup Offer (3)   Expired (2)   Pending (7)   Sold (7)     Okay, I have made a decision.  I know this shocks and surprises you (LOL NOW!) but I actually have.  The HIGHS AND LOWS series that I started will be seperate blogs because there was so much content.  It would be way too long if it was all in the same blog.  So Friday's will be the same REAL ESTATE MARKET WATCH and the beginning of the week will be the HIGHS AND LOWS. So here we go again, and let's start with the most important thing - THE PRICING!  Yet again, there are many price changes (fifteen is a lot!). I can't believe that people are STILL using agents who don't know what they are doing!...

HIGHS AND LOWS - SAN DIMAS , JULY 22, 2011   Okay, so just another addendum to the REAL ESTATE MARKET WATCH segments I've been doing:  In the future, this will be included in the MARKET WATCH blogs.     SINGLE FAMILY HOMES There are 104 Active Homes today in SAN DIMAS. Highest Priced Home -  $1,850,000 Lowest Priced Home - $199,000 Average Home Price - $350,000   CONDOS AND TOWNHOMES There are 21 Active Listings in SAN DIMAS today. Highest Priced Home is $398,000 Lowest Priced Home is $160,000 Average Priced Home is $274,000 You can see from this pricing that there are amazing parts of SAN DIMAS, and then there are middle of the road portions.  But the upside is - THERE IS SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY in SAN DIMAS!     SAN DIMAS LIVING!

SAN DIMAS REAL ESTATE MARKET WATCH - JULY 16-22, 2011   SAN DIMAS REAL ESTATE MARKET WATCH JULY 16-22, 2011       Market Watch New Listing (11)   Price Change (12)   Back On Market (4)   Backup Offer (5)   Expired (1)   Pending (4)   Sold (6)       Okay, so this week in SAN DIMAS is moving along pretty well!  There are eleven new listings, so people are still selling and moving.  Maybe one of those eleven will be the house for you! So, let's start with the PRICE CHANGES.  There are a tremendous amount of PRICE CHANGES.  Twelve is  quite a few for such a short amount of time.  As always, I caution you to make absolutely sure that you use a Realtor who KNOWS how to price right the first time!  Naturally, I do or I wouldn't be stressing the issue so much!  LOL  But seriously I know how to ...

SENIORS GET IN ON THE ACTION! Okay, so the active senior residents of CLAREMONT PLACE took a tour of the facilities at LeROY HAYNES CENTER in SAN DIMAS.  They heard about the amazing 65-year tradition of the center's help to children.  The seniors were treated to a presentation by some of the residents who told of their goals for the future. And the Residential Program Director shared just two of the many success stories that come out of LeROY HAYNES. The seniors then decided to collect 100 backpacks filled with school supplies for the children at LeROY HAYNES.  Donations of school supplies or back packs must be received no later than August 12.  You can read more about it here.

{EAV_BLOG_VER:ea9387d14e0f23e3} SAN DIMAS VETERANS MEMORIAL  Okay, so I'm always passing this sign at the SAN DIMAS post office. It's one of those thermometers that shows the progress for collecting funds in SAN DIMAS for the up and coming Veterans Memorial.   As I have stated before, I am nothing if not totally patriotic.   So this progress has really got me excited!   This article in one of our local papers caught my eye and so, naturally, I have to write about it.  It says that they have raised more than half of the estimated $200k to complete this project and therefore they are planning to start construction within the next two weeks!   Again, so exciting! I love the way SAN DIMAS has chosen to honor it's veterans.  And because I work here, it makes me all the more proud!  The monum...

SAN DIMAS REAL ESTATE MARKET WATCH - JULY 9-15, 2011      Market Watch   New Listing (11) Price Change (13) Back On Market (7) Backup Offer (7) Expired (2) Pending (7) Sold (8)     Okay, so, here is the SAN DIMAS REAL ESTATE MARKET WATCH for this week. There were eight closed sales.  That's good as it looks like more homes in SAN DIMAS are actually getting new families.  But when you consider that there are seven back on the market and eleven new listings, that's not really a lot.  This means that more homes have been put into the inventory.  And the inventory is not selling at the same pace as they are coming into the home market. And once again, I cannot say enough about using a Realtor who prices their home correctly - THE FIRST TIME!  I reblogged a segment written by my friend Ilona...

ASK THE MAYOR COMES BACK TO SAN DIMAS! Okay, so the City of San Dimas has just brought back their "ASK THE MAYOR" TELEVISION PROGRAM after a year long vacation.  With this new launch of the program, you can now email your questions in so they can be answered by the Mayor himself!  Before it was a call in show and questions were answered as they came in. The new email feature was given so people could be more specific (they call it flexible) in asking the questions of the Mayor and his guests. I guess it also gives the Mayor more time to pick and choose his words and choose which questions he will answer and which ones he won't.  Hmmm, interesting! The Mayor, Curt Morris, said that the show has been on two times again with a slower response than usual.  He believes it may be due to the ...

 Market Watch   New Listing (9)   Price Change (12)   Back On Market (2)   Backup Offer (0)   Expired (0)   Pending (9)   Sold (6)   Okay, so here it is, the chart for San Dimas this week. Obviously we had nine homes come onto the market in the last seven days.  Of those nine, five are standard sales, two are bankowned and two are short sales.  It would seem that the days of standard sales are coming back again. Not so bad on the price changes this week.  Twelve price changes is starting to come down from last week's number.  Again, it still really matters that you use an agent who knows their STUFF when it comes to home pricing.   And only two went back on the market.  Maybe this means that things are starting to close and escrows are being completed.  Speaking of escrows, nine went i...

 Market Watch   New Listing (13)   Price Change (16)   Back On Market (4)   Backup Offer (6)   Expired (1)   Pending (12)   Sold (1)   Okay, so it's that time of the week again!  Market Watch is something I do for the cities of San Dimas and La Verne so you can get a feeling for what's happening in the area with regards to real estate.  It also gives me a good feel for home pricing and other factors that enable me to do my job better for YOU. So, without further ado... MARKET WATCH!   SAN DIMAS seems to really be moving a lot more than La Verne at this point.  La Verne only had seven new listings compared to San Dimas with 13.  I think this is due to the fact that certain parts of La Verne are more expensive than San Dimas. Four homes fell out of escrow and went back on the market, but...

Okay, so the City of San Dimas is once again having it's SUMMER CONCERT SERIES at Civic Center Park on Bonita Avenue.  It's being held in conjunction with the farmer's market every Wednesday evening at 7PM starting this week.  The schedule can be seen HERE. Conspicuously missing this year is the popular band, THE ANSWER.  This is personally sad for me because I ALWAYS make sure I can go when the are the band.  They play all sorts of CLASSIC ROCK and are sought after all over Southern California.  The Band's website (click above) says that they are going on a big tour in 2012 and are resting and gearing up, which we can all understand.   Anyway, this year's lineup handles everything from the San Dimas High School Band to The Beach Boys tribute, to The Blues to Classic Rock. If you are lo...

 Market Watch   New Listing (8)   Price Change (10)   Back On Market (5)   Backup Offer (2)   Expired (2)   Pending (7)   Sold (7)   Okay, so, I find it interesting. Last week in San Dimas we had nine backup offers and three that actually went into escrow.  And yet, five of those are now back on the market.  To me, that is a huge amount, almost 50%. And yet we continue to get new listings.  Eight more homes are now on the market, and most of those are standard sales, not short sales or REO'S.  The standard sales mean that either homes are coming onto the market that have enough equity not to be upside down or that investors have bought the homes and fixed them up and are now selling them. So, this week seven homes actually made it through escrow and became sold.  Seven families are now...

 Market Watch   New Listing (10)   Price Change (17)   Back On Market (9)   Backup Offer (9)   Expired (2)   Pending (3)   Sold (7)   Okay, so here we are once again to review the real estate market in The City of San Dimas. Seven of the homes have actually sold during the week which is pretty good lately.  And there are ten new listings which is a pretty good sign that people are jumping back into the market.   Once again, there are quite a few price changes.  Seventeen seems like an awful lot to me right now what with the big picture of real estate.   I hate to keep harping on this but it means the market is still sliding down.  Either that or there are some agents out there who simply don't know how to price their listings correctly in the first place or they tell the client what th...

 Market Watch   New Listing (12)   Price Change (14)   Back On Market (5)   Backup Offer (4)   Expired (2)   Pending (6)   Sold (3)   Okay, so once again, WOW!  I wrote the blog for La verne first this time and was surprised how many new listings there were (14).  The City of San Dimas is a close second with 12!  This is really exciting news because it means the movement is NOT only in one city, but it seems to be in the entire area. And just like in La Verne the majority of listings are standard sales. Personally I think San Dimas is copying Laverne, I'm just saying... Once again, this is good news for buyers and sellers alike.  Sellers can now jump back into the market without fear as they see things moving.  And Buyers can get those really good deals on homes without having to go th...
