yorba linda homes: 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)

yorba linda homes: Hi-Ho, the Derry-O...the Farmer in the "Sell" - 12/05/14 06:14 AM
Why Realtors call Advertising "Farming"
 
    Most people know that Realtors call geographical advertising "farming," but why is this an appropriate term?
 #1  The Principle of Sewing and Reaping
    Traditionally, farmers would sew seed in the earth.  They would usually pray, fertilize and irrigate and the seed would germinate creating wonderful wheat, barley, corn crops that would be harvested at peak season when the grain, fruit or vegetable was fully ripe.  In Real Estate, Realtors "sew" the "seed" of their advertising pieces (notepads, postcards, calendar magnets, etc.) sometimes say a prayer, and one day they receive a call or … (3 comments)

yorba linda homes: Yorba Linda Homes Total City Market Update March 5, 2013 - 03/05/13 08:22 AM
Yorba Linda homes search as of March 5, 2013:
84 ACTIVE listings and 152 homes in ESCROW ... that is jaw-dropping. 
That is a 64% ratio of homes in ESCROW to TOTAL homes on the market.
 I tracked these numbers back in 2005/2006.  Guess what the ratio was back then for Yorba Linda? 
  20%  The ratio today is TRIPLE what it was back in a slow market in 2006.
Are homes selling right now?  You better believe it.  Homes are selling fast and often, for more than asking price.  The casual newspaper or online news reader is usually a little behind the … (0 comments)

yorba linda homes: What I've Learned from Placentia and Yorba Linda Open Houses - 08/31/12 09:15 AM
Well, let me start off by saying that I'd rather be out meeting people than couped up in an office all day typing at a computer (wait, I'm couped up typing right now : 0 )   But, what I mean is, when given the chance, I'd rather be out talking to people in person about real estate.
The Primary Purpose of an Open House is to showcase the listing, to allow prospective buyers to see the home "in person," in short - to sell the home.  
   However, there are some ancillary results from holding a home open, including the opportunity … (0 comments)

yorba linda homes: Short Sale Tips - 06/14/11 06:14 AM
What is a Short Sale?
A short sale occurs when the seller’s lender decides to accept a discounted payoff to relieve an existing mortgage. A seller does not need to be in default before a lender considers a short sale. A lender may consider a short sale if the value of the home has fallen
Do Your Research
Make sure to do your research and check the public records before making an offer. Your agent can find out who is in title, whether a foreclosure notice has been filed and how much is owed to the lender. This will help you … (1 comments)

yorba linda homes: 5 Things to Scare Away Any Potential Buyers - 06/13/11 07:17 AM
1. Odors
Lingering odors such as cigarette smoke or pets will be one of the first things buyers notice upon entering your home. These first impressions can make or break a potential sale. You may have grown used to some odors in your home and therefore should ask someone who does not live there to give it a sniff. Make sure to completely get rid of these odors; don't just cover them up with sprays or perfumes.
 
2. Pets
Pets that are free to roam the house may frighten buyers and scare away those with allergies. Buyers may perceive the … (0 comments)

yorba linda homes: Market Update for Placentia Brea Yorba Linda Homes for Sale : October 11, 2010 - 10/11/10 04:21 AM
THE #1 QUESTION I am asked by people when I talk to them on the streets, in the grocery store, at open houses is.....well, you probably already know:  "How's the real estate market?"  That's not an easy question to answer since my answer is conditioned on the following: 
1.  What exactly and where are they referring to?  Placentia homes?  Yorba Linda homes?  Brea Homes?  Northeast Orange County homes?  ALL of Orange County?  That is my first question back to them, because it matters - each geographic area and even neighborhood is unique and it's own micro-market.

yorba linda homes: Is HAFA "half the" way there for Placentia real estate and Yorba Linda real estate? - 03/25/10 08:57 AM
On April 5th, a new government program will be implemented to help distressed owners stay in their homes - HAFA.   HAFA stands for Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives.  This plan is for homeowners who failed to qualify for HAMP (Home Affordable Modification Program) and is a new program under the Treasury-created HAMP umbrella.  (Watch a short video on HAFA at my website)
According to HAFA guidelines, distressed borrowers will be given $1,500 to be used for relocation.  This is an added incentive for the borrower to short sale their property as the program outlines that the borrower should short sale their home using … (1 comments)

yorba linda homes: Interested in Interest Rates? How They Affect Your Next Home Purchase - 01/28/10 04:27 PM
January, 2010  In Your Apartment somewhere in Orange County
You're looking at buying a home in Orange County for $500,000.  You have 20% to put down, and you have managed to maintain a good credit score of 690.  Your friendly Bank of America loan officer (we'll call him Paul) says today's interest rate for you with good credit is 5%.  "Not bad," you say.  Of course, you ask the million dollar question: "So, what would my monthly payment be?"  You hear Paul tapping his calculator throught the phone. "$2,147 which includes principal and interest."  You scratch your chin and think about how … (3 comments)

Boo!!! - Is the End of 2009 Going to Be Scary???
 

This chart shows the US unemployment rate for the last 30 years. It is good to look at a larger span of history since a cursory glance at year-over-year since 2000 would be scary. But looking at the "bigger picture," we see that we're actually in a normal cyclical pattern of job loss and jobs gained. Interestingly, the peaks for unemployment were 1983, 1993 and 2003...ever 10 years, on the money. We see dips in the unemployment (job gains) in between those horrible peaks. Now in 2009, … (4 comments)
