How Our Guaranteed Home Sale Program Works

Many people are at a loss when deciding whether they should buy their next home first or sell their current home first. Our guaranteed sale program is designed to help you decide which option is best for you. There are three steps involved in the program. First, we do a thorough market analysis to determine the value of your home. Next, we come up with a sale price, which we guarantee. Finally, we market the home for sale, and if we attain a higher sale price than what was agreed, you keep the difference. If you feel like this program will take the stress out of your transaction, don’t hesitate to give me a call so we can talk more about how it can benefit you. I look forward to hearing from you.

3 Strategies For Getting Top Dollar For Your Home

If you want to earn top dollar for your home, follow these three tips.
Profitable deals are possible at any point in the year for home sellers in our market, but it takes careful planning to achieve these kinds of results. 
Here are three key strategies you can use to get top dollar for your home, no matter the season:
1. Sell a lifestyle. Every property has unique features and assets, so play yours up. If your home has a great back yard, perfect for entertaining under the stars, make that a selling point and do your best to target “outdoorsy” buyers. If your home has a huge kitchen, make that a key feature of your marketing. It’s all about identifying the kind of lifestyle your home facilitates, then reaching out to buyers who would be interested in that way of living. 
“Every property has unique features and assets, so play yours up.”
2. Stage your home. Telling buyers what kind of life they could lead in your propert. ...

The Difference Between Short Sales and Foreclosures

Short sales and foreclosures are not one and the same, and today we’ll explain the difference between the two. 
Despite what some may assume, short sales and foreclosures aren’t one and the same. 
To give you a better idea of how these two things differ, let’s start by defining each. Foreclosure is a process by which a lender can recover the loan balance when a property is in default after the borrower has stopped making payments. 
A short sale is a settlement negotiated with the lender in order to avoid foreclosure. 
However, short sales and foreclosures aren’t the only options available to homeowners in distressed situations. You can also ask your lender about a loan modification agreement—which allows you to change the terms of your mortgage to compensate for financial hardship. 
“Today’s lenders would much rather help you stay in your home.”

Will San Diego's Economy Crash in 2020?

Now that we’re a few months into the new year, how has San Diego’s economy fared in 2020?
First, let’s look at the Case-Shiller Home Price Index (refer to 0:32 in the video above for a visual representation), which illustrates home pricing trends over time. Prices rose sharply during the period between 2005 and 2009 (when the market crashed) and then began to stabilize in 2013, leading to a steady increase thereafter. That’s certainly reassuring, but that data itself is not the only reassuring aspect of what’s happening in our markets today.
Next, let’s look at the monthly construction starts we’ve seen  (refer to 1:04 in the video above). Compared to multi-family unit construction, single-family home construction has remained relatively flat since the market crash. If we look deeper into the numbers, this tells a scarier story for San Diego’s housing.
On average, there are between 200 and 225 new single-family ! ...
