There are many communities throughout San Diego County that benefited drastically from the recent San Diego real estate boom.  One of those areas happened to be our northernmost coastal community of Oceanside.  The difference is that Oceanside had a lot of catching up to do.  So while Oceanside homeowners and investors are yelling "Are we there yet", SD Malkin Properties has at least mapped the destination.  Where others had failed in the past by not getting along with the locals; Oceanside's dream of having a resort located at Pacific Street and Mission Avenue, looks like it will come to fruition with a completion date set for 2nd quarter of 2009.  Will a 302 room $187 million high end resort hotel and timeshares make the difference to bring Oceanside up to snuff with her sister city o...

Anyone who likes big band and swing music in the area likely knows about the Oceanside Big Band Bash at the Beach, especially with this year being the 11th annual concert. If you live in Carlsbad, this is an easy event to get to and, per past reports, very much worthwhile.This event was held today in the Oceanside Pier Amphitheatre, with an admission price of only $5 which, in addition to music, got you a hot dot, chips, fruit and soda. Now where else in this day and age can you get a deal like that?This annual event attracts folks from all around, and while immensely popular with those who grew up in the big band era, has become increasingly popular in the last year or two with the younger crowd who enjoy swing dancing perhaps as much as the generation or two further removed.This year'...

Does This Second Lender Foreclosure Home Auction Show the Direction We are Heading?San Diego County Lender Foreclosure Home AuctionConducted by Real Estate Disposition Corporation August 18, 2007San Diego Convention Centerwww.USHomeAuction.comThe first auction conducted by REDC in May which I researched contained 3 Oceanside, CA properties and 1 in Carlsbad. This time around there were 14 in Oceanside and 1 in Carlsbad. Certainly that trend seems consistent with the housing market in these 2 adjacent cities as foreclosure activity is increasing significantly and prices declining rapidly in Oceanside, while Carlsbad is faring much better on both fronts.I have sales data for 6 of the auctioned Oceanside homes and note a few interesting facts:1. All were purchased as non-owner occupied and...

Buyer Activity Anaylsis for East OceansideWith lender guidelines now more restrictive, a jump in interest rates on jumbo loans(over $417,000), and distressed sale properties(short sales and bank-owned) more plentiful, buyer activity on non-distressed sale homes has been slow in East Oceanside since the start of July 2007. To see if there is a seasonal effect that may or may not determine sales in the next two months, I looked at what has happened with single family tract home sales between July and October for the past 4 years in East Oceanside, California. I have eliminated any homes in senior communities or those built after 2004 to be reduce some potential data skewing.Here is a graphical representation of those numbers:Notes for the above graph:-data taken from Sandicor MLS and is b...

As of 8/20/07, there are 77 detached homes actively for sale in the Sandicor MLS in the Villages of Rancho Del Oro(including the Beachwood community). This represents the highest inventory we have seen this year. At the start of the year, there were about 55 active homes, and we held that number steady until about May when it started to gradually increase. In 2006, for much of the year, we had about 90 active homes in this same area. Then starting at the end of summer, since homes weren't selling, they were either pulled off the market and not sold or turned into rental properties and very few additional homes were listed which allowed the inventory to decrease. In retrospect, 2006 seemed to be a harder year for Rancho Del Oro home sales since prices were falling, and the slowing of the...

My Analysis of the Real Estate Disposition Corporation's Residential Home Auctions for Oceanside and Carlsbad http://www.ushomeauction.com/I have many clients, and also realtors like myself, looking at auctions as a potential way of finding properties under value. The trustee sale auctions which occur at the end of the foreclosure process seem to be frequented by professionals of the auction business who are able to pay cash for purchased properties. The average buyer does not have the knowledge or capital to compete at this level. And it seems these days, even the professionals are not buying homes like they once did, so lenders are being forced to take back homes as REO(real estate owned: properties now owned by a financial institution). These homes often come show up on the MLS once ...

June 30, 2007 is a momentous day for Oceanside, CA. Not because of any sort of historic event.Oceanside is growing, and as a result the post office is having problems with their equipment and can no longer efficiently sort the mail to over 32,000 folks living in the 92054 zip code.So, as a result, Oceanside is getting a new zip code.The 92054 area (the west side of town) will be split and there will be a new zip code of 92058 as of June 30, 2007. Thus Oceanside will then have 4 zip codes - 92054, 92056, 92057, and 92058.The boundaries of the new zip code are:on the west - Interstate 5the south - Mission Avenueon the east - North Douglas Driveon the north - Camp PendletonAccording to the post office, both sides of Douglas and Mission will be in the same area code.So, residents of this ar...

Oceanside, CA is a great place to spend a weekend, a two-week vacation, or a lifetime. It offers a great coastal location, broad sandy beaches, relatively affordable homes, condos and townhomes, and lots of activities for all ages.First-time visitors to Oceanside marvel at the downtown building and activity. High rise condominiums, such as the newly-constructed Oceanside Terraces, are reshaping the  skyline, while the historic Oceanside Pier continues to draw fishermen, sightseers or those out for a lengthy stroll. For those seeking museums and missions, Oceanside has much to offer. The California Surf Museum at 223 North Coast Highway is a surfer's mecca. Not only do they have displays showing the evolution of surfing, they also have a large display of surfboards, ranging from single-f...

The Oceanside Pier, in the northern end of town, is an intriguing place to visit, as most piers are. Unlike the famous Santa Monica Pier (near Los Angeles) with its carnival rides, restaurants, and a wild collection of residents and tourists whenever you visit, the Oceanside Pier is more conservative. There are no frills (although there is a restaurant at the end – Ruby’s – which offers great views of the ocean, sunsets, and the coastline in a 50’s-style diner atmosphere) and not much to see except the ocean, folks fishing, seagulls begging for handouts, pelicans diving for dinner, and perhaps marveling at the vastness of the sea. Halfway out the pier are restrooms, a bait and tackle shop and the lifeguard station.   The Oceanside Pier, at 1954 feet, is the longest wooden pier on the W...

Here are the summary statistics from the MLS for Oceanside for the month of December 2006.Most notable was the drop in inventory from the previous month - 18% fewer homes were on the market in December than in November (this was likely due, in part, to the holidays). The prices in Oceanside are remaining pretty stable currently, although attached homes saw a decline from the prior year of 3%, while detached homes rose 1% from 1 year ago.Oceanside offers a wide range of homes in a variety of price ranges. You can choose to live in a newer home in a gated community, a recently built home near or on the golf course, or select one of the pricier properties near the beach or even with ocean frontage. There are also a number of 55+ communities. The town remains the least expensive community, ...

Here is a summary of the market statistics from the MLS for Oceanside for the month of November.The data show a drop of 10% in the inventory since the previous month, likely due, in part, to the time of year. Again we see that the median price for attached homnes is down 2% from 1 year ago, whereas the median was 1% higher for detached homes than a year ago. There was about a 7-month inventory for attached homes as of Nov. 30, and approximately an 8-month supply for detached.AS OF NOV. 30, 2006ATTACHED HOMESDETACHED HOMESActive456789Sold in Last 6 Months371604Sold/Pending In Last 6 months477770Absorption Rate (Solds)221 days235 daysAbsorption Rate (Solds Plus Pendings)172 days184 daysAverage Days on Market6662Median Price Change From 1 Year Ago-2%1%Median Price$335,822$537,000Chg. in MD...

The San Diego Chargers appear headed to the Super Bowl and the San Diego housing market appears to have found it's bottom. Forecasting what will happen next is anybody's guess however homes that are a) not condo's and b) not cookie cutter, seem to be selling faster and close to or even above asking price. Today is Monday, December 11th and the interest rate decreases we've been seeing over the past two weeks may be driving some of the recent activity.As an active, full time real estate consultant with listings and buyers, I can speak from my own experience in saying that business has picked up however, I wouldn't start crowing about it like this unless I was hearing the same thing from the other professionals I interface with at the office, at open houses, on caravans and on the phone. ...
