placentia real estate agents: Why Realtors are Worth Their Weight in Gold - 04/21/17 02:29 PM
The Difficulty in Pricing a Home Accurately
How Realtors Price Homes, A Quick Scenario with John, Rob & Judy
  Realtor John Doe walks into 123 Main St. and sits down with Rob and Judy Brown.  Realtor John does a walkthrough of the home with the sellers, where he assesses the home for condition, upgrades, amenities, and is also secondarily assessing how the home "shows" (whether items need to be removed or if staging is needed).  John brings what most Realtors bring with them - paperwork to sign for listing the home (agreement and disclosures) as well as a detailed list of homes … (2 comments)

placentia real estate agents: Z-Estimate vs. Nic-Estimate - 02/05/16 03:30 AM

Here's what I think - Zillow is Huge, people want to know one thing - What is my Home Worth? Zillow is the only big website that claims to do that. But, since they are based in Seattle and don't have access to your interior and upgrades, their "Zestimates" are horrible. Trulia is a little more accurate and Redfin has the best user-friendly search tools. Want the best? I pay good money to have access to the MLS (Multiple Listing Service). People often find a home they like on Zillow and ask me to give them more detail on the property. … (0 comments)

placentia real estate agents: Should I Buy a Condo or a "Home Home"? - 08/07/09 06:43 AM
I've come across several buyers who deliberate on whether they should buy a condo/townhome or a traditional single family home (you know, the kind that usually have bigger back yards and are NOT in an association).
So what exactly are the pluses and minuses of owning a condo/townhome and owning a single family residence?
Condos (which include townhomes as far as the MLS is concerned) are good for the following reasons:
Most are "low maintenance," meaning the yards (if it has one) are usually small, less grass to cut, less weeds to pull, less greenery to water, etc.  This is attractive … (0 comments)

Best Time to Buy in Three Years???
C'mon Nic, you're just saying that because you're a real estate agent and you want me to list my house!  Let me give you the facts of what has happened the last 3 years and what has happened the last 3 months.  I noticed the downturn hit when I listed 325 New Hampshire back in June of 2006.  We started at $660,000 and ended up chasing market down to $585,000.  The same thing happened with 218 Massachusetts which I listed in June of 2007.  We started at $549,990 and ended up chasing the market … (1 comments)

placentia real estate agents: Why Even Use a Realtor? Top 5 Reasons from a Yorba Linda Placentia Realtor - 04/26/09 07:11 PM
A Placentia Yorba Linda Real Estate Agent's Top 5 Reasons to Use a Realtor:
I was noticing from talking to my clients that people don't like to sit around when they're ready to buy a home....they are actively looking online themselves.
The problems with this is that you have people looking on and and and finding homes that are often already off the market, in escrow, or sold.  Also, these websites do not let the consumer exclude or include features or special conditions (e.g. "short sales").  So, I will often get emails from my clients with MLS #'s saying … (0 comments)

placentia real estate agents: When Cometh the Bottom? April 6, 2009 - 04/06/09 08:14 AM
Isn't THAT the million dollar question...
Well, no one has the crystal ball, but we all have our sources of knowledge and expertise to try to gauge when we'll see the up-swing.
Some are saying that the bottom has already come.
Some are saying that we won't see it for some time.
I say, I don't know for sure, but what I do know for Orange County, CA is this:
The Below $500K Market is already there.
