There has been a lot of buzz this week about lenders starting to foreclose on properties.  AMERICANS BRACE FOR NEXT FORECLOSE WAVE I have been hearing this for a long time so who knows how this will play out. What I do know is the prices are low here in Southern California and interest rates are low for the moment. Here is a sales report I prepared for Aliso Viejo Real Estate Sales for the month of March 2012. I will keep track of any increase in shorts sales and foreclosures. SALES REPORT FOR ALISO VIEJO REAL ESTATE As a Realtor in Aliso Viejo, it is important to keep track of current trends in my community. If you have any thoughts or comments please feel free to leave them here or on my website www.mikerebroker.om   Thank you,   Michael-Edward Cruz

Some of the statistics of the Aliso Viejo Real Estate Market are absolutely amazing! As of March 1, 2012, the Aliso Viejo Market Time is the lowest I can remember!  According to Steven Thomas, Aliso Viejo's Market Time has dropped to 1.06 months!  That means that Everything (that's not Priced 20% over Market Value) Sells in 1 month! The rest of the time is consumed by trying to close the escrow. Ask anyone who's bought recently... It doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure this out. There were 125 new escrows opened in  Aliso Viejo over just the last month.  And there are only 133 residences for Sale in Aliso Viejo, without on accepted offer. Therefore we're Selling almost everything every month!  That is astonishing!  If you are considering Selling your Aliso Viejo Home anytime in 2012,...

What Are Homes in Camden Park AlisoViejo, CA. Selling For? As of March 2nd, 2012 there are two homes in the Camden Park Community in Aliso Viejo that are currently on the market for sale. Both of these homes are the 3 bedroom 2 bathroom 1390 sq. ft. floor plan. One is a short sale listed at $303,900 the other is a bank owned foreclosure listed at $369,900. In my professional opinion from what I have seen homes sell for in the area the foreclosed home that is actively on the market right now is overpriced by about $30,000-$40,000. Let me explain why I feel that way. In the past 6 months 6 homes in that community have sold.  Prices ranging from  $260,000-$320,000. The 3 properties that sold under $300,000 were the 2 bedroom 2 1/2 bathroom 1200 sq. ft. units. Those sold between $260,000-$2...

February 19, 2012 - - - - Sales of Aliso Viejo Real Estate fell big time in January to only 51!  That is well below our norm of 70 Sales per month.  I believe this was partly due to the high volume in December - 96 Sales - and the usual January Real Estate slump.  I expect Closed Sales Volume to pick up sharply since there were 130 new escrows in Aliso Viejo between Jan. 18 and Feb. 16! The Average Aliso Viejo Median Sales Price dropped slightly from $372,500 to $372,000 (August thru January).  January is usually a weak month for Closed Sales Prices.
