As soon as you begin to plan to sell your Costa Mesa home, you’ll soon find one thing everyone agrees upon: the need to de-clutter. But where to start?

huntington beach: Last Month’s Jaw-Dropper & Huntington Beach Listing Strategy - 04/02/18 09:25 AM
When it’s time to put your Huntington Beach house up for sale, one of the most important built-in
marketing tools at your disposal is the write-up at the top of its Huntington Beach listing. Ad people call short
descriptive essays like this “blurbs.” In Huntington Beach listings, its importance is second only to the curb-
appeal of the photo that appears above it.
When the blurb is thoughtfully crafted, it can shape prospects’ expectations by way of highlighting
the best features while softening the importance of less desirable details. A huge backyard could be
emphasized as “park-like”—while a tiny patio could be “cozy” or even “intimate.”
That’s why, … (0 comments)

huntington beach: 3 Strategies for Setting Your Costa Mesa House’s Asking Price - 03/12/18 11:02 AM
Selling your Costa Mesa house for the best price sometimes involves a certain amount of luck, but it’s the kind of “luck” that’s a lot more likely when you’ve set out the welcome mat for it. In addition to strategic home preparation and a solid marketing push, selling your Costa Mesa house for the best price also has to do with where that price starts out: that is, the asking price.
Once you have a clear idea of the professional opinion of its market value—that is, a price that aligns with the latest comparable sales data for similar Costa Mesa homes—you have … (0 comments)

huntington beach: “Last Call” to Buy Your Huntington Beach Home? - 03/12/18 10:25 AM
The question posed in last week’s article was certainly scary enough: “Is It Last Call for Low Mortgage Rates?” If you have been putting off getting ready to buy your next Huntington Beach home, it could well have been a potent call to action. For the normally staid Realtor, it was an unusually pointed dispatch.
The article’s opening line, “All good things come to an end…” is what many Huntington Beach home loan rate watchers have known to be true enough—yet for years now, when it comes to the financial benefits that accompany low mortgage interest rates, the prospects for losing … (0 comments)

huntington beach: 8 Great Reasons Why you Should Short Sale your Home! - 12/24/09 05:21 AM

Reason Number 1 - Because You Can!
Several years ago short sales were unheard of.  Asking a bank to do a short sale would have resulted in a laugh and a click at the other end of the phone.   But banks now realize the scope of the problem.  Heck, even they needed a bail out.  And you may too!  Do you want to be the guy taking all the arrows and holding up the weight of the universe like Charles Atlas, or does it make sense to restructure now while you can.  I guarantee when all of this mess is … (1 comments)

huntington beach: LITTLE STEPS UP TO THE LEAP! - 12/22/09 02:19 AM

As you've already read here, conditions are ripe to become a homeowner, and it's time to determine if you're ready to make the leap.  While the price of the home is the largest factor, don't forget about loan fees and closing costs, which add to your total financed amount. 
Since banks are stricter in their lending, Step One is to polish up your credit report.  A higher score gives you more power when it comes to negotiating terms and interest rates.
Similarly, a larger downpayment will positively affect your mortgage terms and reduce the amount you have to finance.  If … (0 comments)

huntington beach: DEVILS IN THE DETAILS - 11/27/09 05:00 PM

When you receive an Offer To Purchase, you are likely to focus on the price.  You might be ecstatic over a full price offer, but you should be aware how "contingencies" could affect the likelihood of success.
Almost every offer has a mortgage contingency, stating that the buyer will secure financing at a certain rate and for a certain term.  Make sure these factors are realistic.  A buyer seeking a 30-year loan at 4% with no points may be hedging their bets if your agent advises that these loans are typically written at 7% with 1.5 points.  Unrealistic terms can … (3 comments)
