Vista, CA Real Estate News

5 Affordable tips that could help you sell your home quick and for top dollar in Vista, California!    I have been fortunate to work with investor groups who have completed dozens and dozens of successful remodels over the last few years. Many of these remodels cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in many cases.  While being involved with these, I have noticed some trends.  Many of the things future home buyers point out when looking at these remodels that they like the most, actually aren’t that expensive and give the home some major POP and a WOW factor when selling.   I have listed 5 items that cost roughly $5,000 if you did all 5 that would spruce up and give your home the true WOW that could help sell your home quick, get you top dollar, and in many cases double the $5,000 investm...

Experts say 2013 might be the year to finally buy a home for many Americans. From what I've been seeing, the numbers certainly support the notion. As noted in a recent Wall Street Journal article, the number of homes for sale in the United States fell to a 13-year low in January, leaving many buyers chasing a shrinking supply of homes. And according to the National Association of Realtors, there was an average of just 4.8 months of supply of existing homes for sale in 2012 Q4 (in other words, it would take approximately 4.8 months to sell off the amount of inventory at the current pace). The normal supply of existing homes for sale is usually around 6 months worth. It's definitely safe to say there is a shortage of homes for sale in North County San Diego, which is also why 2013 is a go...

     What Is An Accessory Dwelling Unit       aka "ADU?   As a Real Estate Broker, General &Manufactured Home Contractor, Manufactured Home Dealer & Developer we are often asked about the many misunderstood and confusing  synonyms that will help clear the air for the average layperson seeking information  about this subject.    We hope the following list of synonyms will help you should you ever need to inquire about having one constructed or installed on your property.   Probably one of the most commonly used and acceptable synonyms for an "ADU"  is "Granny Flat". But it doesn't end there. There is a flurry of acceptable words to substitute and frankly they may be more commonly accepted and understood.  There are also: Mother-in-law Flats Granny Room Granny Annexe Inlaw Flats Casitas C...

Folks, there isn't much you can't do these days on the Internet, and real estate is no exception. I recently read some interesting statistics on how the Internet plays a role in buying and selling a home and I thought I'd share the data with you. According to a recent CAR (California Association of Realtors) survey, 96 percent (yes, 96 percent!) of all home buyers use the Internet during their home buying process. As you can see by the chart to the left, previewing homes was the most important thing to do online for home buyers. This was followed by identifying specific homes that buyers wanted their agents to show them. Another recent study showed that 75% of all home sellers also found their agent by looking online. By the looks of it, everyone is using the Internet when it comes to r...
