Newport Beach Real Estate Sales Are Up 14%!  Thats what  Data Quik reported for late April and first week of May 2012. I have recently been seeing multiple offers, homes selling for asking price or close to it, and buyers and Realtors are scrambling trying to find homes for sale. This really is happening pretty much everywhere, and definitely in Newport Beach. In the Dover Shores community where I specialize in, there are only 22 homes for sale today. The average asking price is $1,894,177. There are 13 homes in escrow and 21 have sold in the past 90 days. You can see that inventory is really low. If no other homes came on the market it would take 2.3 months to sell all the inventory in Dover Shores. This is called absorption rate. A 6 month absorption rate is normal, more than 6 months...

You may be wondering what is going on in the Dover Shores Community these days in regards to sales. Well, I am happy to say that unit sales are up. I love to do research so I researched sales back to 2002. Guess what, we are selling a lot of homes! Looking at the first 3 quarters of 2011 compared to every year all the way back to 2002, sales are pretty good! Today we have sold just as many homes for the same period of time as in 2005! Folks this was the peak! I believe that buyers are getting wise and are taking advantage of today's pricing and the incredible interest rates available. Do you know that you can buy in the Dover Shores Community including Baycrest, Westcliff, and Harbor Highlands at about $498.00 a square foot? It was almost $700.00 a foot at the peak of the market. For mo...
