Claremont Summer Concerts in the Park 2012 Okay, so Claremont is an amazing city and a beautiful place to live.  There are trees everywhere and it is nestled in the foothills like the other cities I cover.  From beautiful views, to the Claremont Colleges and local public schools with high test scores, it is certainly a place to consider when moving to the area. Naturally, the City of Claremont also has concerts in the park - just like all the surrounding cities.  This year's concert series starts on July 9th with the Ravler's Band.  And ends with the BEST, the ANSWER which is another classic rock band, but in my opinion the very best one. Monday's are certainly a different night to hold your concerts, but perfect as this may be a night when you are looking for something to do.  This als...

Claremont Real Estate Market Watch - May 14-20, 2012         Market Watch       New Listing (4)   Price Change (5)   Back On Market (4)   Backup Offer (6)   Expired (1)   Pending (7)   Sold (9)   Okay, so this is another exciting week for real estate in Claremont.  Four new listings and nine sold.  As you can tell, the homes are getting sold and the inventory is shrinking.  So if you are thinking of buying a home, it's time before they all get gobbled up.  There have been quite a few articles recently about low amounts of homes for sale in certain areas.  And even more articles about bidding wars being back.  So if you are thinking of selling your home, well the laws of supply and demand come into play.  Lower supply, larger demand raises those home prices just a bit for you.  Just seve...

Claremont Real Estate Market Watch - April 17-23, 2012 New Listing (8)   Price Change (7)   Back On Market (10)   Backup Offer (6)   Expired (2)   Pending (10)   Sold (10)   Okay, so here are Claremont Real Estate Market statistics for this week - and they seem to be picking up! This week there are eight new listings in the city.  Ten sold this week in Claremont, and that number is moving along quite nicely.  The same number, ten, went into escrow which means that in approximately 30-60 days we should have ten more that sold.  Looks like the Claremont Real Estate Market is starting to move and shake. (A HA, move and shake, get it, California, earthquakes...!) Ten homes were also placed back on the market and six have moved into back up status.  Usually the homes that go back on the mark...

Claremont Real Estate Market Watch - March 9-15, 2012 Market Watch       New Listing (6)   Price Change (5)   Back On Market (1)   Backup Offer (6)   Expired (0)   Pending (11)   Sold (7)                 Okay, so here are Claremont Real Estate Market statistics for this week - and they seem interesting! This week there are six new listings, which doesn't seem like an awful lot for this peak selling time of the year.  Tis the season and all that!  However, seven sold this week in Claremont, and that's an okay number when compared with the amount of new listings. Eleven went into escrow which means that in approximately 30-60 days we should have eleven more that sold.  Looks like the Claremont Real Estate Market is picking up but the inventory of homes in going down.  If you want to live ...

Claremont Contest Introduces Students to Construction Okay, so I was reading an article and I thought this was a fantastic idea!  The National Association of Women in Construction came up with a great plan to introduce children to the creativity of building and construction.  On February 15, 2012 the group held a building block contest at Sumner Elementary School in Claremont.   The contest consisted of 36 third graders who used 100 blocks and had 40 minutes to create buildings such as a hospital a power plant and other choices.  The kids could also use items such as string and foil to help with the project and the creativeness.  The hope of this contest is to encourage children to enter construction as a profession later in life. You can read more about the contest, the winner and the ...

This week there are sixteen new listings,which indicates that confidence is coming back.  Only one sold this week in Claremont, and that's not really a great sign.  Four went into escrow which means that in approximately 30-60 days we should have four more that sold.  Again, not a great number for the Claremont Real Estate Market. Six homes were placed back on the market and three have moved into back up status.  Usually the homes that go back on the market are homes where the buyer has eithe...

Claremont Continues with Redevelopment Projects Okay, so here's a bit of good news from the City of Claremont, CA.  The Claremont City Council voted unanimously to continue some projects even though the $3,000,000 they usually receive from the federal government has been halted.  It's like this for every city since the disbanding of the Redevelopment Agencies. Some of the projects they have agreed to continue are Friday Nights Live - a program directed at teens and lowering the deaths and injuries caused by teens who are under the influence of one substance or another. Also a senior unit subsidy for Claremont Senior Villas which helps seniors afford their housing in senior communities within the City of Claremont.  You can read more about it here. The amount set aside by the Claremont C...

Claremont Real Estate Market Watch - January 6-12, 2012  Market Watch       New Listing (7)   Price Change (12)   Back On Market (5)   Backup Offer (2)   Expired (3)   Pending (4)   Sold (1)     Okay, so once again we are starting a new year.  Happy New Year once again to all of you.  Here is this week's Claremont Real Estate Market Watch - and we're off and running! This week there are 7 new listings which is a good sign that people are getting more and more confident in the real estate market.  Only 1 sold and 4 went into escrow.  That's 1 homes that have new owners and 4 that will hopefully in a few weeks.  So home sales are happening in Claremont but it's not a really strong start to 2012. There are 5 that went back on the market and 2 that have gone into backup status.  Usually th...

Claremont Colleges Complete Their New Construction Projects Okay, so the world-famous Claremont Colleges have completed Phase 1 of their building projects.  The reason they are doing this is that they are seeking LEED certification - Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.   LEED is a four-tier system ranking for high performance green building by the U.S. Green Building Council. (Really, I never knew we had a council like this!)  I do know that the City of Fontana has all new homes being built with solar power, but I digress.  The completion of Phase 1 indicates a GOLD ranking, the highest available at the time this all started.  Phase 2, which is scheduled to be completed in 2013 will make them qualified to achieve the Platinum ranking which is now the highest ranking available...

Highs and Lows - Claremont, CA, December 14, 2011 Okay, so here we go with the statistics in CLAREMONT, CA.  I think for this month we will skip a lot of the explaination as it has been in all of the other past months and you can always call me with any questions. Short and to the point is not something I usually am, but let's pretend for now, shall we? SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCE HIGHEST LISTING  $  4,000,000 LOWEST LISTING  $     170,000 AVERAGE PRICE$     409,000 ACTIVE LISTINGS 115 SOLD THIS WEEK                     2 NEW THIS WEEK                     4 Short summary:  If you compare this months highs and lows to last month, you will learn that the average price has dropped from $499,000 to approximately $409,000.  And last month there were only 6 sold during the week last month where w...

CLAREMONT REAL ESTATE MARKET WATCH - SEPTEMBER 24-30, 2011    Market Watch       New Listing (7)   Price Change (15)   Back On Market (5)   Backup Offer (6)   Expired (1)   Pending (7)   Sold (6) Okay, so here flows the information.  Seven new listings with six sold.  Looks like inventory is still strong in CLAREMONT.  As a buyer this means that your choices in CLAREMONT are picking up a bit.  Sellers, it means that the pricing of your home is extremely critical at this time.     We have discussed "back on the market" before, but I think everyone could use a refresher on this subject.  These five homes have either been labeled as pending which means it was entered into escrow, or as back up offers only which means it had an offer that the bank was thinking about.  Like we have said perv...
