Well, it has been 6 months since my last update for Rancho Del Oro(RDO) and a lot has happened since then. The lenders dropping many loan programs in July 2007 caused almost a halt of sales for RDO in the next couple months causing a 10% drop in prices in those 2 months. And sales have remained relatively slow since then. 100% financing is limited to sales prices less than $417,000 and buyers for more expensive homes that actually have a down payment are few and far between. Foreclosures have become the driving market force. Many REO(bank owned homes) are now on the market and generating sales, but the lowered prices have hurt all sellers. Successful short sales are practically non-existent, so it means more foreclosures lie ahead.As of 2/20/08, the good news is there are only 45 detach...

Baby Boomers have never been the silent sort, and more and more we are hearing their wishes in unison. Disclaimer: The San Diego real estate market is not like Las Vegas, or Tucson or Asheville or Biloxi and our home prices, though far more reasonable than a couple of years ago, are still quite high–because of ongoing demand. Blame that on our incomparable balmy climate, stunningly beautiful ocean and mountain views, great golf courses that can be played year round, a vibrant San Diego downtown area and a series of unique seaside villages across the San Diego Bay and up the San Diego County coast. We work with a number of baby boomers who are either moving to or within the San Diego area--and so do many of the bloggers on Active Rain. Many of those already invested in the San Diego real...

The inventory of Active listings in Oceanside's Rancho Del Oro tract home community of about 1700 homes currently sits at about 48 single family detached homes. In August of 2007, that number was about 80 and for Jan-May 2007 it stood at about 55 homes, when sales were brisk with prices steady. This community is considered mid-priced within Oceanside and gives a good indication of the overall health of the market.Many sellers have taken their homes off of the market due to the holiday season. However, if those sellers decide to wait out this market, or have turned their homes into rental properties, this lower inventory level can help stop the freefall of prices we saw August to November. For much of Oceanside, the bank owned properties(REO) are controlling the market. Short sale listin...

I wasn't able to post my video testimonial under my Testimonial section of my profile, so I am posting it here. Our team creates all sorts of video for our clients - both buyers and sellers. For sellers, we create video home tours of every one of our listings. I just finished the home tour of my most recent listing, and it will go up on my web site, http://www.OceansideVista.com, in a few days. For buyers, we will go into a property of interest and create a video and mail you a DVD home tour that you can watch on your big screen TV!

Not a short sale! This charming 4 bedroom, 2 bath home has a 2 car garage, is priced to sell and most likely the most home you will find for the money. Very nice neighborhood with pride of ownership close to shops and just blocks to the 76 freeway. The private back yard backs to open space.

A quick update on the final sales price of the auction home at 4309 Deer Valley Way in Oceanside, California's River Ranch Community:This had a sales price of $463,000 and $10,000 was credited to the buyer with closing date October 29, 2007. So with $453,000 going to the seller and $20,000 in upgrades, and $30,000 for buying and selling costs, the seller probably lost a couple thousand dollars, and they got off easy! Since they paid cash, they only had to cover property taxes, insurance, HOA, and utilities during their time of ownership and they were able to sell it quickly.Had their $435,000 investment money($415,000 purchase price plus $20,000 in upgrades and buyer's closing costs) been sitting in a Washington Mutual savings account or similar earning 5%, they could have made at least...

Douglas Crossing built by Centex Homes (http://www.centexhomes.com/) in 2003 consists of about 179 homes in 5 models, two of which are single story. Lot sizes average 6500 square feet. The homes range in size from 1833 to 2860 square feet and were originally priced in the mid $300,000s. Today's values are low $500,000s.

HOA is about $100 per month and shares the community facilities of Arrowood including the Luiseno Park. This may have been the first Arrowood community built, hence the presence of Mello Roos fees of about $2000 per year. Arrowood is also sometimes referred to as Morro Hills.

Mission View Estates by Fieldstone (http://www.fieldstone-homes.com/) was constructed around 2003. Three two story homes ranging in size from 2990 to 3516 square feet were available with original pricing in the mid-$400,000s. Many of these same models were available in the northern half of the River Ranch community also built by Fieldstone. The biggest difference between the two communities was location. River Ranch has no views and is right next to Hwy 76, while Mission View sits high on a hill with over half the homes having great northern or other views. Mission Terrace is also a Fieldstone community in this same area built around the same time, so as a company, they did very well during the boom years. Fieldstone generally tries to make the secondary bedrooms a decent size, and all ...

Panorama Ridge is by Heritage Pacific Homes (http://www.heritagepacifichomes.com/home.htm) and located in the east part of Oceanside near Melrose. As of 2/20/08, it appears none of the Heritage Pacific websites are working. For now, you can call the Panorama Ridge II sales office at 760-630-9090.Panorama Ridge I was 25 homes constructed in 2004. A lot of interest was generated by these homes due to a nice combination of floorplans, lot sizes, and view lots. Sizes ranged from 2590 to 3321 square feet in the 3 models. Orginal pricing was from $500,000 to $650,000 depending on home size and view. The streets are Panorama Ridge Rd and Panorama Vista Drive.With only 2 resales completed and 2 currently listed, this looks like a neighborhood where folks will stay for a while. HOA is currently ...
