Real estate is a local phenomenon, so what you hear
on the news may not always apply to your specific area. In this
section, we will
continue to bring you local, up-to-date market conditions!
Be sure to check back often!
Although the California housing market has actually posted a decrease
in median value over the past 2 months, homes in San Bernardino County
have continued to appreciate. Despite a slight increase in housing inventory recently, homes are
still selling in about a month on average, but often MUCH faster!
If you've recently considered selling your home or are just curious
about how much your home is worth, contact us today
for a FREE
valuation! You may be surprised at not only how much your home is
worth, but also how fast we can sell it!
The days of abundant foreclosure listings have all but disappeared,
while short sales and standard sales make up most of the market. Some
of the standard sales are investor rehabbed homes that have been updated
and upgraded, while many of them are everyday homeowners that are
seeing equity again and taking advantage of the current market!
year fixed rate mortgage
interest rates continue to stay in the low-mid 4% territory, but many
analysts and experts expect to see 5% by the end of 2014. Considering a
historically "normal" rate sits at 8-10%, today's
rates are still extraordinarily LOW! This is still prompting many
prospective home buyers to take action in an effort to achieve the
ultimate American dream of owning a home! Rates will NOT stay this low;
it is a great time to save hundreds of dollars on your monthly payment
by locking in a GREAT interest rate!
Short Sale Update!!
some of the most exciting news of 2013, both the IRS and FTB recently
updated their position on short sales in California. Neither of them consider the
"forgiven debt" of a qualified short sale to be "taxable income"
anymore! This is big news and adds to the already HUGE incentives
to short sale your home rather than leave it to foreclosure!
If you are one of many homeowners who have found themselves struggling
to maintain your mortgage payments, a short sale is one of several
options and in some cases, can be the best option. If you have
determined that a short sale is right for you, we'd be more than glad
to help you start on the road to recovery by perfoming a short sale
