Selling a fixer upper in San Marcos - San Marcos fixer upper I recently met with a man who's thinking of selling a fixer upper in San Marcos. He's lived in this home for 40 years and obviously hasn't spent a lot of time or money keeping up with the home because there were quite a few deferred maintanance issues that were easy to spot. He's met with investors because they knock on his door. The last investor who he allowed in his home wasn't very nice. In fact, they suggested just throwing stuff out when it's obvious this homeowner has a lot of attachment issues to his belongings. Are you a homeowner or relative considering selling a fixer upper? Here's some things to keep in mind.  If you're short of extra money every month you probably won't have the funds to be able to make the necess...

San Marcos Pool Homes - Pool Homes in San Marcos I love pools! There's something magical about San Marcos pool homes, especially when entertaining at night or with the endless views from the hills. Many homes in San Marcos have homesites high in the hills overlooking Carlsbad, the city and even the islands of Catalina. Infinity edge pools really present these epic views with style.                                   Buying a pool home in San Marcos is a great idea because buyers today can capitalize on owners expenses.

The builders are busy right now. San Elijo hills has new homes for sale.  The estates at San Elijo are all sold out. Altaire is wrapping up. Sanctuary has its model homes in place with views all over North County San Diego even into downtown. They have single story homes for sale and their homes start at $800,000. They've broken ground all the way up San Elijo road over by the fire station and new elementary school being built. I took a walk up to Double Peak park the other day and took a video of new homes being built. It's pretty exciting watching these homes get built so fast and the quality of the models at least were amazing.

Located in North San Diego County, San Marcos is east of Vista and west of Escondido and south of Bonsall. Geographically, San Marcos lays claim to 24.4 square miles, yet claims a population density twenty times higher than neighboring Bonsall. Since San Marcos is an integral part of our marketing area, trends are extremely important. In this case, I will be reviewing the trends for only single family homes for the periods of August 2013 and August 2014. Here is what the numbers compiled from the Sandicor MLS numbers: ·         The median sales price of SFR properties in San Marcos for 8-2013 was $448,500 vs. $460,000 on 8-2014. ·         The percentage of the List Price captured in 8-2013 was 98.7% vs. 95.7% for 8-2014. ·         The average price per square foot for sold homes was $2...
