Get Moving: July 4, 2012 has Fireworks in Real Estate?
The latest news as we head past the mid point of 2012 in real estate locally in San Diego shows increases in values, currently pushing the validation of the second quarter statistics even further forward as we settle into the hottest selling season of the year. Interest rates are at historical lows below 4% fixed-rate for a 30-year mortgage, so if you are thinking of buying but are still on the fence, GET MOVING! And if you are wondering if it is time to explore moving up or scaling back from your current space, let me repeat myself–GET MOVING!
Every real estate transaction, whether on the buying side or the selling side, is unique as far as the situation. Because of that, your experienced real estate agent or broker should assist you, as the client, in the appropriate direction. If there is any hesitation of what the best course of action is, it may be time to interview another agent. If this is the case, I would like to interview for the job of being your agent now.
My latest experience involved me selling a rehab home for the out-of-state owners, who owned it free and clear. I was able to reap, I am proud to say, the highest value for the zip code! This, on top of the fact that the comparable properties had depressed values and the neighbors were skeptical, but who are now thrilled because I just raised their value considerably. The market is on the way up, thus making it the perfect scenario for you as a buyer or seller to GET MOVING!
For two other clients of mine that I am in the process of helping buy homes; one listed to me, accepted my advice, and is under contract–while the other wanted to veer away from my recommendations and, sad to say, they are not happy because they did not get the property. It is not all about price, it is the big picture; including: getting repairs done and even new appliances put in the property–but I will get you the best shot at the best results! In obviously over-priced homes, there again is nothing to worry about, because I know how to weave through that. All situations are different when buying or selling; however, when you have an agent who has over 20-years of full-time experience in this industry, then your odds of winning always go way up. Wouldn’t it be in your best interest to HIRE the BEST of the BEST?
NOW is the time to GET MOVING and make sure your back is covered!! I am available now; you can search current properties on my website: www.JohnSilva.com–and give me a call to schedule some showings!
In closing, my sincerest wishes for a safe, blessed and happy 4th of July to you and yours, and especially thanks for our forefathers whose example we continue to emulate with the True Heritage of this great nation called America, lest of all we best not forget our military–past, present, and future who contribute in sacrificing their body, spirit and ultimately their lives for US ALL! God bless!
