Lack of San Diego Real Estate Inventory in 2017

Lack of San Diego Real Estate Inventory in 2017

Low inventory has caused the number of home sales in February 2017, which are completed transactions nationwide to drop 3.7% from January 2017. The properties counted in this analysis include single family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops. Although Realtors have been reporting a strong buyer presence wanting to purchase real estate, the problem is the lack of inventory of resale homes for sale. First time homebuyers made up 32% of the total sales in February 2017 compared to 33% in January 2017. All cash sales made up 27% of the real estate transactions in February 2017 and 23% in January 2017.

Freddie Mac reports that the average commitment rate for a 30-year, conventional, fixed-rate mortgage is slightly up in February to 4.17 percent from 4.15 percent in January. The average commitment rate for all of 2016 was 3.65 percent. So the interest rate from last year is up about ½ a point and the home buying demand is still strong. The Federal Reserve has said that they will be raising the interest rates again in 2017 so if you’re buying a home and want a lower interest rate acting sooner than later to purchase a home is recommended. Call The Lewis Team and let’s get started.

National Association of REALTORS - Sales Drop in February as Shortages Persist

The lack of inventory in the San Diego real estate market has been an ongoing problem continuing from 2016 and most of us knew that 2017 would be no different. Buyers far outnumber homes and condos available for sale in the San Diego Market. When homes are price right and are in good condition they get multiple offers and sell fast. There are some homes on the market with long DOM – Days on Market – due to agents who have the properties listed overpriced. These properties will sit on the market but will receive no or few offers until the home is priced to match its true value. 

If you’re buying a home or selling a home in 2017 you will want a real estate team that understands the real estate market in San Diego. Please give The Lewis Team a call so we can make sure that your transaction is the best it can possibly be.

Coronado House Value Check

Coronado House Value Check

Coronado is located in Central Coastal San Diego. Coronado’s most well-known attraction is the Hotel Del Coronado or “The Del” as us locals call it. Coronado Island is rich in history both military and civilian. ThereCoronado San Diego Real Estate Values The Lewis Team are 2 Navy Bases on Coronado which are Naval Air Station North Island and Naval Amphibious Base Coronado. The other San Diego naval bases are also within driving distance and are; Naval Base San Diego, Naval Base Point Loma and Navy Broadway Complex. We’ve helped many military and military families relocate to and from all areas of San Diego. To the south of the Hotel Del are the Coronado Shores High Rise Condos which are highly desirable on the Coronado Real Estate Market. I’ve lived in these condos before and it’s a very special place to live.

Coronado sits across from Downtown San Diego and Point Loma and is just north of Imperial Beach. Coronado, being that it’s a coastal community has very fair weather and not very hot in the summer like inland areas of San Diego County. Coronado is one of the top five most desirable communities to live in San Diego and home and condo prices reflect this exclusivity. Coronado is Zip Code is 92118.

Home Values in Coronado California

Are you interested in knowing the value of your Coronado home? We have a great House Value Tool that will give you a quick home value of your Coronado Real Estate. Many of my clients like it better than the Zillow Zestimate. They say it has more accurate data and is more thorough and complete. My Coronado House Value Checker will show you all of the comparable properties that it uses when calculating your home’s value. That way you can reference which properties the Coronado House Value Calculator is using.  Why not try it? It’s FREE.

Even if you’re not selling your home in San Diego County right now it’s important to know where your home is on the home value chart. For most people their home is the most expensive and important asset they own. Every once in a while, usually quarterly, I will look at my 401k and other investments to see where they are at. Keeps me in the loop on where my investments are and allows me to make any changes I need to stay on track. Knowing your home’s value is one of those quarterly, if not yearly checks that I believe is a good idea.San Diego Values for Homes and Condos by a local Realtor

If you are considering selling your home in the next 6 to 12 months now is the time to get a free home value analysis. We would also suggest that you take advantage of our on-site “CMA” Comparative Market Analysis. This is where Mike and Dawn will do a full professional value check of your Coronado Home. We will spend some time with you over the phone asking you important questions about your home like; condition, improvements, additions and other value related questions about your home. We will then compare your property to other homes in your Coronado neighborhood that are similar to yours. We will make a list of active homes on the market, homes in escrow and sold homes in Coronado to come up with the proper valuation of your home. This is something a computer generated report just can’t do, and it’s 100% accurate because it’s a snapshot of the current real estate market in your neighborhood specific to your home. We offer this for free because having an accurate home value from a local real estate expert is priceless. We also want to make sure you know the real value of your Coronado Real Estate. 

During this visit we can also give you suggestions on improving your home for the sale, what to tidy up, what to paint if needed, staging advice and so much more. We would also be at your disposal for any real estate questions you have, and we would also enjoy meeting you.
