Ojai & Oak View Real Estate Market Trend 2012 - 02/29/12 02:23 PM
The data illustrated below shows the Ojai and Oak View Real Estate Market Trend inching its way up, with inching being the keyword here. After the huge gains shown in 2006 & 2007, the Ojai and Oak View Real Estate Market suffered price depreciation like most of the nation, but has weathered the storm well and I think that is because it is so desirable. Interesting to note for the last 3 years the amount of Ojai and OakView Single Family Homes sold has been consistent and if the numbers for January can be projected for the next 11 months, then 2012 may (0 comments)
Camarillo Real Estate Market Trend 2012 - 02/29/12 02:11 PM
The Real Estate Market Trend illustration below shows that Camarillo Single Family Homes sales have declined from the high levels recorded in 2005-2006. The Camarillo Real Estate was not excluded from the Real Estate meltdown, however Camarillo has a higher price point than a few of the other close in proximity cities to it. Camarillo has a declining inventory, especially in the lower price range and the demand is high, therefore keeping Camarillo Single Family Homes quite stable for the last few years. Camarillo does have a higher percentage of Single Family Homes price $500,000 to $749,999 and Single Family Homes priced $750,000 (0 comments)
Oxnard Real Estate Market Trend for 2012 - 02/29/12 09:34 AM
The sold statistics illustrated below show Single Family Home prices for the city of Oxnard are showing signs of stability. Oxnard was particularly hit hard when the real estate market fell apart. You can see by the number of Oxnard Single Family Homes sold in 2005 and 2006 at the height of the subprime lending fiasco, that it would only be true that most if not all of these subprime loan purchased homes would fall back to the banks or third party investor flippers. The Oxnard Homes that were purchased with subprime loans have washed through the system for the most (4 comments)

The New Libbey Bowl in Ojai has began to fill the 2012 Performance Schedule.

Ventura Real Estate 2012 Trend - 02/28/12 06:16 PM
o where are we in this Real Estate Meltdown? Below is an illustration of the Ventura Real Estate Trend since 2003. This data was collected for Single Family Homes only and the ocean front homes were excluded. It is important to remember that these are average sold prices and the higher priced homes can skew the average a bit, however it still gives us a good insight into the Ventura Real Estate Market. Overall, the trend shows on average the Ventura Real Estate Trend maybe fighting to head in the upward direction, however I do believe the growth will be slower (4 comments)
Seabee Museum in Port Hueneme - 02/27/12 11:25 AM
My husband and I toured the new Seabee Museum in Port Hueneme last week. It officially opened on July 22, 2011 and is a vast improvement of the old Museum that we visited back in 1995. It is not completely finished, as it depends on contributions to continue with its development. The Seabees are the construction aspect of the military..their motto is "We build, we fight". From the island hopping of World War II and the cold of Korea, to the jungles of Vietnam, to the mountains of Bosnia, and to the deserts of Afghanistan and Kuwait, the Seabees have built entire (2 comments)
Thousand Oaks Real Estate Market Absorption Trend for January 2012 - 02/21/12 12:39 PM
The Thousand Oaks Real Estate Market Absorption Trend for Thousand Oaks illustrates that the average home price is in the mid-range range of home prices. This mid range home price range does not have the buyer competition that the $50,000 to $350,000 price range does, so property does take a bit longer to sell and generally list prices have some wiggle room to move down. However, the data does show that while there is some wiggle room the average list to sales price stays consistently in the high 90% bracket. See the links below the chart to see homes for sale (1 comments)

Camarillo Real Estate Market Absorption Trend January 2012 - 02/07/12 08:56 PM
The Camarillo Real Estate Market Aborption Trend January 2012 illustrates that the average sales price for the last 3 months is only 3.4% down from the average sales price of 2010. And while that is not reason to raise the roof in celebration, it does show that prices are beginning to stabilize. The inventory in Camarillo of lower priced property is pitiful, which does often times create bidding wars and buyers are told to bring their best offer in first!
