orange county real estate: Orange County Real Estate by the Numbers - 12/07/16 02:29 PM
I am kinda a numbers geek. I wasn't really great in math in school. In fact, I will never forget a Algebra teacher told my mom, it is OK if we went on vaca cause I was never going to get Algebra.  Not my recommendation of how I would teach, but maybe that is what gave me an eye for numbers.
Though there are a lot of emotional and intangible aspects to Real Estate in major sense it is a numbers game.  So yesterday we were sitting in a sales meeting and reviewed the current status of the Orange County market by the numbers.. Take … (1 comments)

orange county real estate: Orange County 2015 Year End Real Estate Snapshot - 01/12/16 06:14 AM
As a professional real estate agent, I believe it is important to understand the overall market of Orange County in addition to the local communities I regularly serve and practice business in.  Though Orange County is a pretty big county, that offers a variety of opportunities for real estate.. you can pretty much get to each side of it in about 30 minutes from anywhere in the county.   
So though Anaheim real estate sales are going to be different than say Lake Forest,, the overall trends should be somewhat similar.
A few highlights on the overall market that are important to look at..
