yorba linda realtors: 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 realtors: 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 realtors: 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 realtors: 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 realtors: 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)

yorba linda realtors: 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)

yorba linda realtors: 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 Zillow.com and Realtor.com and Redfin.com 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)
