The Rorschach (or inkblot) test is the one where a psychologist shows you a series of picturesthat seem to be random black-and-white splatters. The shrink asks you what you think they looklike. What you “see” in the inkblots tells something about who you are—how you look at things.If someone were to create a pack of inkblots to test for who would be best suited for thetasks facing Mission Viejo homebuyers, they’d be designed to pinpoint character traits that comein handy during a typical homebuyer’s quest. I don’t know how Dr. Rorschach came up with theshapes he chose (what was he thinking?)—but at least four characteristics to look for would be:1. Low financial anxiety. One trait that’s common among those who are well preparedto go after their first Mission Viejo home is command of the...

When it comes to the reality of pricing a home in Mission Viejo, it’s natural that buyer’s andseller’s points of view reflect their different roles and objective. In a way, they are mirror imagesof each another.From the seller’s point of view, pricing their Mission Viejo home starts out from the realitycheck of the “comps”—the prices registered in recent comparable neighborhood sales. From there,the pricing decision revolves around the tradeoff between maximum asking price versus the desirefor a speedy sale. Even if there is no time pressure at all, serious sellers will still set the askingprice below a level that indicates disregard for current market realities. Rather than communicating“this place is worth more than what people are willing to pay,” overpricing only serves toneedlessly...

The attachment we build to the places where we live is an easy-to-understand humanemotion. Almost everyone who has ever moved away from a family home has experienced a senseof loss that can be quite profound. But that’s only one of the emotional connections that come intoplay where real estate is involved.Even though we tend to think of such important decisions as buying and selling MissionViejo real estate in more hard-headed terms, a host of complicated human factors can play animportant role.One of them is becoming more prominent—and is likely to grow more so as we advanceinto Mission Viejo’s peak spring and summer real estate selling season. That is the hard-to-pin-down factor of general well-being: the nebulous—but real—sense of optimism or pessimism that isshared by the public at ...

It turns out that the run of admirable national and Mission Viejo home sales advances have been pulled off despite a couple of strong countercurrents. At least that’s the theme that emerges from last month’s Aspiring Home Buyers Profile report, which supplied one obvious and one not-so-obvious widespread beliefs among would-be future homeowners.Mission Viejo home buyers are always a mix of current homeowners (who will usually also be selling) and first-timers. Among the latter group, a major drag on their willingness and ability to invest in their own Mission Viejo home is the student debt phenomenon. Enough has been written about that in recent years that it’s hardly a surprise: 39% of non-owners cited student loan payments as a primary reason they weren’t planning on being able to buy...
