Brendan and I would like to send a warm greeting to all of you, in hopes that both your families and businesses are doing well for each of you.
We have been blessed and have been plugging away in our lives with our family and business, and with much growth on both sides! We are excited to bring to you our new website www.bwinans.com, where you can navigate some of our listing along with direct search options into the Bakersfield and Los Angeles MLS's. Our goal is to offer fresh and accurate information as we have discovered that many home search websites do not update the properties, therefore many homes that we have sold several months back are currently showing active. We are also promoting various companies or local vendors each month, feel free to contact us directly if you are interested in advertising your business next month as this reaches hundreds of business contacts.
Recently the market has been identical to our weather "HOT! HOT! HOT!". This month we listed several properties, a few of which were income properties, the others being regular sales or short sales. All properties had multiple full price offers within 72 hours of hitting the market. We are meeting or exceeding our sellers' goals thanks to the buyers market holding strong and our marketing plan. Also, regarding buyers, we are definitely finding great opportunities as the inventory has opened up a little more during this quarter. Noted below is a quick glance on approximate numbers regarding housing activity here in the valley:
Sold Properties from 6/1/11-6/23/11 = 419
Active Properties = 1839
24 Hour New Listings = 56
We feel it is very important to stay connected with businesses and to support one another. I would like to thank those who continually support and trust us by referring business and this is one way that we would like to give back. Noted below are a few businesses that have the same heart as we do. They are geared toward honest, hard working, service oriented practice.
