tony lewis: Are We in a Real Estate Bubble? Prices on the Rise Few Homes For Sale - 02/06/21 09:17 PM
​​Dear Friends, Family & Present and Past Clients,
It has been quite a while since our last Newsletter due to the uncertainty we have been facing due to rising prices and Covid-19 concerns.  A bubble can burst instantaneously once prices surpass value.  This is evident in the stock market with what happened last week with Gamestop.  However when it comes to home values the value is based upon the prices that a willing seller and able buyer agree upon.  The value has nothing to do with real value, just perceived value.  There are too few homes for sale for the amount of … (3 comments)

tony lewis: Thankful on this Thanksgiving - 11/17/20 02:04 PM
Thanksgiving is that specific day and time of year we reflect upon people, places and things that have enhanced our lives over the past year as well as our lifetime. Dani & I have been through so many adventures together in our lives. Some were incredible and others were heartbreaking.
We first began our real estate career together in 1996 after owning and operating a market, deli and pizzeria for over twenty years. We were forced into a new profession due to the 1994 Northridge earthquake, the recession and family health conditions which force us to end our partnership with our family.

tony lewis: 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)

tony lewis: 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)

tony lewis: Are there troubled waters ahead? - 03/31/20 09:39 AM
Dear Family, Friends & Clients,​​ We are now in a recession and the hope is for a V-Shaped Recovery.  This means that the economy goes down sharply and bounces back just as sharply.  This is not a time to act out of fear but it is also a time to protect ourselves should things end up worse than hoped for or expected.  Home ownership is highly desirable.  There is no need to panic unless you are not able to make payments over the next six to eight months should you lose income or ability to pay your mortgage.  This might be a … (4 comments)

tony lewis: How will the Corona-Virus affect our Lives and Real Estate Market? - 03/15/20 11:15 PM
Friends, Family & Clients, Consumer confidence is being impacting as panic has taken a grip on society.  Fear is warranted and real.  Future Generations will look back at this time as our version of the Roaring 20's.  This Pandemic will be recalled in the same manner as the Spanish Flu.  The Major Affects will impact us for four to six months and gradually cooler minds will prevail.  The Stock Market will recover, grocery shelves will be full again, people will be able to meet in large groups and sporting events will brings us all back together cheering and booing our favorite or … (4 comments)

tony lewis: Do you realize that we can not avoid going into a recession? - 03/11/20 04:04 PM
It is already too late to avoid a worldwide recession.  Too many jobs have been lost, events cancelled, paychecks missed, mortgage paymense unpaid and net worth devastated.  Talk of a cure being at least a year ago has shattered consumer confidence.
This post is not meat to create fear but prepare you for a rough ride ahead.  Protect your finances.  Be careful on your spending and warn your friends, neighbors and family of impending turmoil.

Friends, Family & Clients,
"Same Time Next Year" This is the same message sent every year for the duration of our 23 year career. It is going to be the best time of year for buyers beginning at the end of October and runs through to the middle of February of 2020. Buyers put home purchasing on hold until Springtime comes near as they are preoccupied with School and Holidays. The News and Media will continuously bombard us with information about the slowing real estate market. This slowing is due to this annual phenomenon.
Homes that will be on the market are being … (1 comments)
