As of today Brea has a total number of 89 homes/condos    (re-sale) for sale. Of those 10 homes are foreclosed bank repos, 9 are single family and only 1 condo. Actually as a long time Brea Realtor myself, this is the most I've ever seen at one time!

  • Prices today for single family bank repo homes for sale in Brea begin at $375,00 and range to $775,000.
  • The only bank owned condo in the City of Brea is listed at $315,000

However it's important to note approximately 40% of the homes currently for sale in our city are identified as a "distressed" sale, meaning a short sale, foreclosure or in the process of foreclosure at this time.

Today's priced combined with great fixed interest rates make home ownership more affordable now that we've seen in decades.

Hi Lynda,

Has your Spring market  started to heat up yet? We have what seemed like a lot more activity since mid March but it seems to have flattened down some in April. There is increased an increase in distressed  properties coming to market but not accompanied with the matching Buyer activity. Certainly seems like a great time to take advantage of lower prices and still low mortgage costs.

Wow 40% is a very large number Lynda. With that high a figure it sounds like it could be years before you see any noticable appreciation in housing.

Hello William ~ Most of our activity is in the "entry level" price ranges, meaning under $500,000 in my area. The overall number of closings for the the month was down 13% from 2010. I've not yet completed my entire market report, so I'm just not sure yet of the pricing differential.

Bill ~ The 40% figure includes everything otherthan a standard sale, Meaning, short sales, those currently in the default/foreclosure process & bank owned foreclosures for both condos & single family homes alike. 60% of our sales are "standard" usually meaning equity sellers. As for appreciation, I'd imagine that would also depend on inflation in general.
