Rancho Bernardo Market Trends for 92127,92128
All the newspapers had the same message today…last month home sales were down. The market is very specific for neighborhood and zip code. We are still seeing short sales and bank owned properties come on the market. The difference I have seen is that now limited partnerships and individuals are purchasing some properties at auction. They do what I consider limited improvements such as paint and general cleaning. They put them on the market (flipping) as quickly as possible to minimize carrying costs. One recent example was a large home in Santaluz that was purchased in the low $800′s. It was a popular floor plan on a good lot. They was repainted and did some basic cleaning and repair work. It went on the market for $1,075,000 and had multiple offers!
I am also noticing short sales coming back on the market. These are representing fantastic opportunities. They have been in escrow 4-7 months and when the bank finally agrees to the sale the clients change their minds. I just had this happen on one of my listings. Now someone can jump in and not have the long waiting period for approval. This occurs of the offer made is a mirrir image of what was approved. I watch the “back on the market” properties daily to spot opportunities.

Santaluz Seller Shares a Positive Testimonial for the Pagnotta Team
“Our house in Santaluz had been on the market for 6 months with no activity. We then listed the property with Gretchen and Alan Pagnotta and within 30 days we had 3 offers. Alan provided comparative data to help us establish a sales price as well as financial data detailing the financial results of a sale at various prices. Gretchen helped my wife “stage” the house so that it would be attractive in all respects. Both were very proactive including handling all aspects of the sale while we were out of the country on a previously planned vacation. Gretchen and Alan also showed us a number of properties which accomplished our goal of reducing our housing expenses, while finding a home that fully satisfied our needs. We could not be more pleased with their professional and proactive efforts to assist us during a difficult real estate market. The results could not have been better!” Ron and Dede Carlson
Real Estate is a challenging field especially with the current market conditions. It makes all the hard work worth while when we can help people accomplish their goals. There was a time just a few years ago where a home practically sold itself. Today all efforts need to be taken to prepare a home, market the home through all advertising and internet sources, price it correctly and then to follow the ups and downs of the escrow process. Lenders are making things very challenging with their strict guidelines. It is critical in today’s real estate environment to select a Realtor with experience, negotiating skills, and creativity to accomplish both a sale and to represent you as a buyer.
We are so very thankful for the people that have put their trust in us over the years. We truly share in our clients enthusiasm when we find them a home that meets their requirements when representing them as buyers. In addition we breathe the same sigh of relief when call to confirm a closing on a property they have sold. The opportunities today with low interest rates and a wide assortment of inventory make this a great time to consider a change in residence if your needs have changed.
Refinance Your Home
I just refinanced my home which I purchased last September. It was beneficial for me to grab a lower interest rate which will pay for itself immediately since there were so few fees involved. Interest rates are at a record low so if you have been considering a purchase or a refinance now is the time to contact a reliable lender and see if you and your home qualifies. It saved me $250 a month in payment..that is a considerable amount that can go into my retirement savings. For people saving for college for their children that is $3000 a year which puts a small dent into the total cost. Boy, glad those days are behind me.
Huge Values in Luxury Home Market in North San Diego
The values in the home market especially in luxury homes are at such attractive levels if you ever thought of “moving up” top a luxury home now is the time. Luxury homes are selling below replacement costs and the selection is incredible! Seasonally this is also approaching the very best time for a buyer to purchase. The market slows down in the fall months with people busy with back to school activities, the holidays and just not in the “I want to buy a home mood.” The homes that have been on the market all summer will have price reductions as sellers become disenchanted with showings and lack of offers. What a great time to negotiate for a home!
Lowest Interest Rates Since 1970!
According to a recent Wall Street Journal Article the interest rates for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages are in free fall, averaging just 4.44% on Aug. 12, according to Freddie Mac. Not only was that down from 5.07% in January, it was the lowest since Freddie began keeping records in 1970. So what are you waiting for? For the rest of the article go to: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703723504575425734198113348.html?mod=WSJ_RealEstate_LeftTopNews.
San Diego First Time Buyers Have Great Opportunities
Although the credits for first time home buyers are not available the drop in prices can more than make up for any credits. Sellers are willing to help with closing costs and again the values are no longer at the very bottom but are still very attractive. San Diego is a very desirable city to call home and we will see a recovery. You will be glad you jumped in and did not ignore an opportunity.
Where the Best Home Values are in San Diego
Where are some of the great values…??? Luxury homes in Santaluz, Rancho Santa Fe,Del Mar and Encinitas…are at unbelievable prices. There are homes that have been built to accommodate large families with actually living quarters for 2 families.
