Newport Beach Real Estate Update - 11/30/09 09:56 AM
This week the median list price in the 92660 zip code of Newport Beach is $1,675,000. Inventory is decreasing in Newport Beach and homes are selling quicker than they were. One reason for inventory decreasing could be that this time of the year many sellers rather not sell. Some take their homes off the market and some wait until after the holidays to list. As far as homes selling quicker than they were, could be due to low pricing and record lows on interest rates. Remember, you also receive a tax credit if you buy a home now. Because home sales have been out selling the (0 comments)

Balboa Island Bayfront Home For Sale - 11/19/09 07:58 PM
As I was looking over my preview list this morning I noticed a home that I had been watching for months, it was being built on Balboa Island.
I couldn't wait to get in and see what the interior looked like, because I was intrigued by the exterior. It's not often I see a plantation style home in Newport. When I do, I always admire them. This home I admire in particular because of it's spectacular location on the Little Island. Lots of folks don't even know about the Little Island, because it's tucked away.
This is the view from the front (1 comments)

Should You sell your home over the Holidays? - 11/11/09 10:46 PM
YES! You should sell your home over the Holidays. Although you may think that the Holidays are not a good time to sell, you could be wrong. Take a look at the benefits: Currently inventory is running low. There is massive buyer demand. The tax credits avaliable today are getting buyers to step up. Low interest rates are incredible! Extremely low prices. Your home looks its best when it is decorated. Less competition, other sellers are taking their homes off the market. Who knows what will happen in January!!!! Any time is a good time to sell as long as your property is (7 comments)

Take a look at Newport Beach prices right now compared to 2 years ago. I constantly get asked what is the market going to do? I don't know, I wish I had a crystal ball. What I do know is that in Newport Beach, Real Estate is a great investment. I remember back in the late 1990's not being able to buy investment properties and boy did I regret it! I know the same thing will happen again. Take a look at the chart above and you will see an increase recently. Today the median list price in Newport Beach (1 comments)
I never thought condos in Newport Beach would be affordable. Now they are! Take a look at this beautifully remodeled Westcliff Villa condo in Newport Beach. Located in a very quiet location, this "Villa" is just a short walk to the community pool, spa, and BBQ area, as well as the local shops, restaurants, and services. Truly resort living nestled within a charming neighborhood. I don't want to forget to mention it's just a short bike ride away from Balboa Island and the Ocean!
This home features 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2 garden patios, new ceramic stone floors, new carpet, (0 comments)
