La Jolla Real Estate Market Report for Homes and Condos, May 2013

Summary:  The real estate market for Downtown San Diego condos continues to accelerate faster than Vin Diesel in the latest fast and furious.  The latest talk on the town pertains to re-entering yet another real estate bubble.  The current climb in demand and prices is different this time around.  The sub prime loans and shady lending practices of old are gone.  This is an absolutely sustainable rise in prices.  Buyers are buying homes and condos they can actually afford.  We live in a capital market, cycles are assured but…  In this Downtown San Diego real estate broker’s opinion, anyone waiting for this current bubble to burst could be waiting for years.  Even when the eventual price decline does happen, you are most likely looking at a soft cyclical decline and likely no where near the low levels we experienced the past few years.  It’s the right time to sell or buy, don’t get left in the dust!

Staging Approach Helps Downtown San Diego Condo Sellers

Home-Staging-Sample PicWe all know the feeling – the one where guests are due and you haven’t had time to clean the Downtown San Diego Condo or San Diego Home.  You shove all the…well… stuff into the back bedroom and shut the door (you’d lock it if you could).

Now imagine that feeling times 10.  If you are trying to sell your home this spring, and you have rooms full of that…well…stuff — you’re in for exactly that.

You can prevent it all with just a touch of the staging approach for your Downtown San Diego Condo.  Not everyone has $5,000 or more to spend on professional staging, but then again, you can’t offer your home in “lived in” condition and expect to have buyers racing to write you their high-priced offers.

Real estate is in large part an emotional selling proposition – beyond their basic housing requirements, buyers want to see themselves living a better life in their new Downtown San Diego Condo. The quickest and easiest way to make that possible is to simply get rid of that same stuff!

Here’s an easy example: while a messy home office – one stuffed with papers and files – will cause many potential buyers to think too cramped for me, a well-staged home office helps them imagine their own paperwork in control. To achieve a look that’s clean and simple, box up your files and clean out the dust bunnies.  If you have allowed extra furniture to accumulate (like that folding table in the corner that holds last year’s tax records), go ahead and UN-accumulate it!

Staging of any kind may not be your first choice for how to spend an afternoon, but selling your Downtown San Diego Condo is a business transaction, and when you approach the process confident that a little elbow grease will go a long way, your pocketbook will register the difference.

The Best Day for Listing Your Downtown San Diego Condo is…

human trying to make the right choiceMansion” is the Wall Street Journal’s entry into the high-end real estate magazine world. Well, not quite a magazine — it’s an extra section they run on Fridays. It’s a nice diversion for those who want to read about really rich people selling their properties, some in Downtown San Diego.  More than that, it could actually be an important source of information if you decide to buy a vineyard in the middle of Los Angeles (Bel-Air, actually — that one was featured last week).

It was another article that caught my eye on Friday, though; one that dealt with a topic we agents have long debated. The article was headlined “THE BEST DAY TO LIST A HOME IS…”.  It summarized an elaborately executed study by a national brokerage revealing hard statistics on which day of the week is best for launching your Downtown San Diego listing. The author, Sanette Tanaka, brought up several ways to look at the question. While her focus was, of course, national, the unspoken allure was to zero in on which day will maximize our Downtown San Diego listing results.

Tips for Selling your San Diego Condominium or Home

I bet you want to know the answer, so here it is: …(drum roll, please) —

Friday. Houses listed on Friday spent the fewest days on market (2 fewer than Thursday, 7 fewer than the most ho-hum day for listing, Sunday).

But, reading further, there is a problem. Listing on Tuesday brought in the most requests for house tours — by 8 thousandths of one percent over Thursday. For drawing house tours, Friday faded into the pack…

All of which points to something experienced Downtown San Diego agents already know: statistics are helpful, but not to the point where they detract from getting the job done.  The best day to publish a Downtown San Diego listing is as soon as it’s ready – the instant it’s ready! Buyers are constantly combing the listings, and the ideal prospect may be long gone if we hold off for any reason.  It is better to rely on solid marketing such as on of my real estate video tours and consistent advertising.
