The Changing Orange County Real Estate Market

Laguna BeachLadies and gentleman, as I am sure everyone is aware by now, the real estate market all around the nation and especially in Orange County, CA is not the same as it was just a short time ago.  No longer are the days when you (yes, pretty much anyone) could go out buy a home, wait a short amount of time, and turn around to sell it for a substantial profit and then go do it all over again.  Real estate investing made many people a fortune especially in Orange County, CA.

Today, as we all know, this is not so easy.  With the market changing, unpredictability, fluctuating interest rates, and uneasy homeowners, today it is more critical than ever to be aware of the market you live in and stay on top of local real estate news and trends.  As a home seller you must be aware of the "7 common home seller mistakes"

  1. Failing to analyze why you are choosing to sell
  2. Not preparing home for the buyer's eye
  3. Pricing their home too high
  4. Selling your house too hard during showings
  5. Signing a long term listing agreement without a performance guarantee
  6. Too difficult for buyers to find information on the home
  7. Failing to obtain a pre-approval letter for the new homeNewport Coast
Today's Orange County real estate market has made it all the more important to stay on top of market conditions and understand the selling process that will help you maximize your profits, maintain the control of the process, and reduce the amount of stress that goes along with selling your house.

Remember, before deciding to put your home on the up and down Orange County real estate market to focus on these steps...
  1. Clearly understand why you are selling; and keep that to yourself
  2. Study the market before setting a price
  3. Research previous sales in the neighborhood
  4. Decorate your home from a buyer's perspective
If you have any questions regarding the value of your home, market conditions, or any other real estate related matter, please do not hesitate to contact Kevin Simshauser or a member of his team for assistance.
