sell: Labor Day Weekend, the End of a Sad Summer - 09/02/20 08:08 PM
​​Happy Labor Day,
 
What a sad year for all of us. We have been forced to live life as if we were a third world nation. Masks, home-bound, no indoor eating at restaurants, small businesses going bankrupt, many businesses hanging on by a thread, hospitalizations and loss of life is hurting our American Spirit. The Stock Market and Real Estate Market remain strong.
Labor Day Weekend, just like Mother's Day, Father's Day, Memorial Day & Easter will not be as enjoyable of events as we usually enjoy. We, as Americans, will keep our eyes on the future knowing that better days are ahead … (14 comments)

sell: Election 2020 Is it time to sell? - Summit Real Estate Group - 07/23/20 09:47 AM
Dear Family, Friends & Clients,​​
There are three main reasons that a home doesn’t sell within three months at this time. Two are avoidable and I can solve the third one. The number one reason by far is not listing the home at a price that will bring in the maximum number of highly qualified buyers. The second is not having a quality Virtual Tour and Photos. The third is not hiring an Experienced, Knowledgeable, Professional Local Realtor. We have been listing and selling homes since 1996. We know that reaching our fellow Realtors is the key to bringing in the most … (6 comments)

sell: Looking towards the future, Tony & Dani Lewis Summit Real Estate Group - 05/02/20 09:08 PM
​​Friends, Family & Clients,
The future is uncertain due to the pandemic and home sales in California will most likely fall due to the corona-virus. However, home prices may stay at or near current values or even rise due to significantly lower interest rates. Stock prices and economic uncertainty is a cloud hanging over all of us. Our hope is for a V or U-Shaped-Recovery. Each day, week and month ahead will inevitably lead to significant changes. People returning to work, stay at home order ending and returning to a more normal and stable life will give all of us much needed … (1 comments)

sell: What Dave Ramsey (Debt Free Guru) won't tell you. - 01/12/20 06:50 PM
The quickest and safest way to become a millionaire is through home ownership. The secret to becoming a multi-millionaire is by getting into debt. The reason is simple. It is called leverage. We can buy a primary residence of $500,000 with a $15,000 down payment. Real Estate in California traditionally appreciates around 6% to 7% per year. This is a great return on your investment. However, that is not the benefit. Consider that you have only invested the original 3% your return over ten years may rise to well over $250,000. This is a return of about 17 times the original … (5 comments)

Happy Easter, Easter begins the unofficial start of the home selling an buying season.  This is the time of year when buyers come out of the woodwork, competition for well located homes increases and we begin to see multiple offers.  This is a great time for those of you looking to make a move to prepare your home for sale.  The least expensive improvements include landscaping, painting and cleaning or replacing the carpet.  Declutter your home as a home looks more comfortable with less furniture.  Cleanliness is essential.  No dirty clothes on the floor or dishes in the sink.  Buyers judge how … (2 comments)

sell: Rent Control - Good or Bad? 4th of July Events 2018 - 06/24/18 05:26 PM
Family, Friends & Clients,
There seems to be differing views of what is right or wrong when it comes to the real estate market.  Ask someone if they like rent control and the answer from home owners and investors is polar opposite from those that are not home owners.  Rent control makes owning an investment property a bad investment.  Take the career of a Realtor such as us.  We have no pension and could never survive on savings or social security so we have invested in rental properties as a way to secure our financial future.  Prices rise every year and the … (3 comments)

sell: Schools Out For the Summer & Starts August 16th (Father's Day Events) - 06/13/18 07:12 PM
Homes sales are slowing down for several reasons. Prime reason is lack of inventory, followed by rising interest rates and then homes being listed at a price above what a will buyer will pay. We are now seeing price reductions often in all areas of the Santa Clarita Valley. Home prices have risen significantly since the start of 2018 and with higher prices and interest rates the average days on market has continued to fall. The Median Price with all areas of the Santa Clarita Valley included stands at $544,425. The average days on market is about three weeks or less. … (1 comments)

Dear Friends, Fanily & Clients,Halloween marks the beginning of the traditionally slowest real estate market of the year.  The slow season run through the holidays until near the end of January or up to mid-February.  This by no means indicates that it is not a good time to sell or buy a home, in fact, this could be the ideal time to be both or either. Finding a home at this time of year is beneficial to buyers as there is much less competition.  A seller may be more willing to compromise than at they might be at peak season.  This doesn't … (0 comments)

sell: What's Unique about real estate in the Fall? - 09/25/16 08:47 AM
The Fall in Southern California is an incredible time in real estate due to the perfect storm.  Sellers have reached the peak pricing for the year and buyers are able to purchase a home with less competition.  This is that time of year when both parties are happiest with making a deal. 
Selling a home and buying another at the same time is more beneficial at this time as well.  The home they are selling, if priced and promoted properly, should sell in a timely manner.  The home they hope to purchase will be much more apt to accept an offer … (1 comments)

sell: Will your decision today change the future? - 03/20/16 04:11 AM
Spring of 2016 enters with a shortage of housing.  Rising prices and the potential of the rise of interest rates will make it more difficult for first time buyers to compete for a home.  Pent up demand with many buyers sitting on the fence continues to fuel the unlimited supply of buyers for the dwindling inventory.  Compound this with the fact that Millennials, about 83.1 million, now outnumber Baby Boomers.  The housing market has recovered since the start of the recession in 2006.  However prices are still below the prices at the peak of the market.  There are more qualified buyers … (2 comments)

Dear Clients & Friends,
Halloween - Evolving from the ancient Celtic holiday of Samhain, modern Halloween has become less about literal ghosts and ghouls and more about costumes and candy. The Celts used the day to mark the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter, and also believed that this transition between the seasons was a bridge to the world of the dead.  Over the millennia the holiday transitioned from a somber pagan ritual to a day of merriment, costumes, parades and sweet treats for children and adults.

Dear Clients & Friends,
There couldn't have been better news for the struggling middle class than we heard on Friday.  The Fed has decided to hold interest rates and will not raise them for now.  This is incredible news for those with adjustable interest rates, home owners thinking of selling and of course those sitting on the fence that need an added incentive to get off the fence and purchase a home.
