The Perfect Storm

Hi all I was at a seminar the other day and learned some interesting facts that you wont hear on the news. I already know the market is getting better, but did you know we are expecting a housing shortage in the next 18 months? This is also the first time in 30 years the house prices are down and the interest rates are as well, but you say how the news says the sky is falling. So I say listen to your local Realtor as to what is happening you will be suprised the answer you get. Stay tuned for more interesting facts or contact me with any questions. Hope you had a great St. Patrick's day I did I went to Swami's in Encinitas to soak in all the beautiful views California has to offer

I am still here are you?

Hi all it has been awhile since my last post. As they say life happens, but I am here to tell you I am still doing Real Estate and I hear to tell you if you been on the fence thinking the market is going to plummet more I think you should re think that. I am seeing the market turn around and if you were thinking of buying now is the time to jump in with both feet. For the last 8 months we have seen the market go up every month. People do not want to engage in short sales because they take so long (2 months if your lucky and up to a year) Yes I said a year. So when a bank owned property comes on the market or a regular sale up to 450,000 it is gone the 1st day and there are multiple offers and bidding wars, and I am not talking about 4 or 5 offers I am talking more like 22 offers. I bid on house for my clients and they were 1 of 43 offers!! I know this seems hard to believe but it is what is going on. I welcome you to call me or email me with any questions I can help with. My email is Bridget@SellingNorthCounty.com or my cell is 760 533 4551. Take Care, Bridget

No News Is.....

“For most folks, no news is good news; for the press, good news is not news.”

– Gloria Borger

Dear Friend,



You hear the bad news everywhere you turn. It’s on the television, the Internet, the radio

and in print headlines. What you don’t hear is the good news about the real estate market.



Bad news sells newspapers and gets high television ratings; therefore, the media has no reason

to report the upside of today’s real estate market to the average American. This is where I

come in. For example, did you know that approximately 30 percent of homeowners own

their home free and clear?



The current market also affords some great opportunities for those looking to purchase a

home. First-time homeowners, move-up buyers and investors can all benefit from low home prices, large selection and historically low interest rates.



In addition, the government recently approved a First Time Buyer Tax Credit, up to

$8000, that does not require repayment if the borrower resides in and maintains ownership

of the property for at least three years. Regulations do apply and can be reviewed at www.federalhousingtaxcredit.com, or just give me a call and I will be happy to discuss

it with you.



Call me to hear more about the good news in today’s housing market. I can’t wait to share

it with you.

Staggering Numbers

If you follow my blog you will find I post these statistics often. These numbers show you how the Sandicor MLS, Multiple Listing Service of homes on the San Diego Multiple Listing service for one week. Our inventory has dropped to an amazing low which would explain why last week when I wrote an offer for my clients we were 1 of 42 offers. If your thinking of listing your home now would be the time especially if you own your home. Many buyers are trying to steer clear of short sales due to there response to buyer offers. Bank owned or foreclosure homes are quicker to receive a response but the competition is staggering as my above example. Please feel free to contact me to assist you with any questions you may have in regards to buying or selling in this market.
