Placentia Ca: The Placentia Chamber has been growing stronger over the past year in membership and support. The people resonsible for this growth has been its dedicated Ambassadors being led by Membership Director Michele Severson. Randy Tovar has been a dedicated Ambassador for several years. The Placentia Chamber  is now including a spotlight of an Ambassador or Board member who has been exemplary the past week. The very first Ambassador to be spotlighted is my husband Randy Tovar. I am especially proud as I served as an Ambassador for The Fullerton Chamber of Commerce for 8 Years. It is difficult at times to juggle our real estate sales business with our voluenteer work for the Chamber,but it is so worth it!  The CIty of Placentia is a great place to live, work and enjoy. You will fi...

The Difficulty in Pricing a Home Accurately How Realtors Price Homes, A Quick Scenario with John, Rob & Judy  Realtor John Doe walks into 123 Main St. and sits down with Rob and Judy Brown.  Realtor John does a walkthrough of the home with the sellers, where he assesses the home for condition, upgrades, amenities, and is also secondarily assessing how the home "shows" (whether items need to be removed or if staging is needed).  John brings what most Realtors bring with them - paperwork to sign for listing the home (agreement and disclosures) as well as a detailed list of homes that have sold in Rob and Judy's neighborhood and nearby neighborhoods.  The "Comps" (short for "comparables" or "comparable homes") John uses usually have photos and always the specifications - Number of Bedrooms...

Attention Placentia Condominium Homeowners: You are leaving cash on the table if your Condominnumim or Town home community is not  approved for FHA or VA home loans.   As of February 7th, 2014 there are No Condominium or town home communities approved for FHA Financing in the city of Placentia. This means that properties being offered for sale will have far less opportunities for potential buyers.   Fewer buyers usually equal sellers not being able to obtain offers at market value.     It is not very difficult to obtain an FHA Approval for your community. There are certain guidelines that The Department of Housing and Urban Development has set as minim requirements. The 2 key elements are The HOA budget is healthy and the rental to owner ratio. These 2 items should be checked before you...

LISTINGS AND REAL ESTATE SALES BOTH DROP IN PLACENTIA CA In September 2013, the number of homes for sale in Placentia, California decreased 6.3%, compared to the previous month. However, on a year to year basis, active listings increased more than 36%. Even with this large, double digit jump in Placentia real estate listings, inventory remains very low, and is still far below the number of listings that sat on the market throughout the foreclosure crisis. In addition, distressed listings are now almost non-existent in Placentia, and homeowners have regained a great deal of their lost equity. Pending home sales slipped 2.8% month over month in Placentia, and fell nearly 41% when compared to one year earlier. The drop in pending real estate sales figures can be attributed to the significa...

LISTINGS AND REAL ESTATE SALES JUMP IN PLACENTIA CA Like many surrounding north Orange County cities, the number of homes for sale in Placentia, California rose by 25% between July and August 2013, and the year over year increase was 42.9%. Yet and still, an inventory shortage remains, which encourages buyers to participate in bidding wars, and pushes sales prices higher. Another contributing factor to the price hikes is the dwindling distressed listing market; Since August of last year, foreclosure listings have fallen 75%, and short sale listings dropped 50% in Placentia, due to the rising number of homeowners with regained equity. Pending real estate sales fell 15.3% in Placentia, on a month to month basis, and tumbled 40% when compared to August of last year. The drop was inevitable...

REAL ESTATE SALES DOWN BUT PRICES UP IN PLACENTIA CA Although real estate listings rose 33.3%, on a month to month basis, by the end of July 2013, the number of homes for sale in Placentia, California remained nearly 5% lower than the figures posted one year earlier. Real estate inventory is still incredibly low in Placentia, which continues to spur multiple offers and bidding wars, when a desirable property hits the market. As a result, home prices have increased at a steady pace, over the past several years. In addition, and due to the rise in values, fewer and fewer distressed listings have come on the market in Placentia, with foreclosure listings completely vanishing, and short sale listings falling 64.7%. Month over month, pending home sales posted a slight gain of 2.4%, but fell ...

REAL ESTATE LISTINGS RISE, BUT INVENTORY SHORTAGE PERSISTS IN PLACENTIA Although real estate listings shot up 77.8% on a month to month basis, the number of homes for sales in Placentia remained incredibly low in June 2013. Additionally, when compared to one year earlier, there were still 23.8% fewer properties for sale at the end of June. This is very unusual for this time of year, when real estate listings are typically at their peak. The extremely low inventory level in Placentia has caused home prices to rise rapidly over the past 12 months, as potential home buyers continue to compete in bidding wars for desirable properties. Pending home sales were relatively flat between May and June, but reflected an increase of 10.6% year over year. Considering the low number of homes for sale ...

PLACENTIA CA REAL ESTATE LISTINGS HIT A NEW LOW The number of homes for sale in Placentia, California fell to the lowest level in the past 17 months that I've been tracking these figures. As of the end of May, 2013, there were just over 2 dozen total properties for sale in Placentia, and only 7 of those were condos. Attaining an entry level home in Placentia has become nearly impossible, and prices continue to push higher due to the lack of inventory and ensuing bidding wars.  A decrease in inventory is extremely unusual at this time of year, and I would have expected to see more summer sellers entering the market, especially with the recent surge in home prices. Pending home sales were virtually unchanged between April and May. However, pending sales figures in May 2013 reflected a 37....
