Agoura Hills is an interesting Southern California community. It is located in the "Conejo Valley" of southern California, a mostly planned community located at the Los Angeles and Ventura county line. It is situated within the Los Angeles County side, but is closer in nature and stature to the communities of Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks than to the "San Fernado Valley".  30 miles from downtown LA, 30 miles from Ventura Harbor, 60 miles from Santa Barbara, yet only 10 miles from Malibu. It is a very old community which was originally on the pony express corridor, a stagecoach stop and originally part of the Las Virgines Mexican Land Grant. The population is about 20,000. There are hiking and biking trails, protected open space AND protected species! It is part of the chaparell and...

Why Are Home Sales A Bit Sluggish? We have seen almost a 20% increase in home values over the last 18 months. Equity has partially come back into the pockets of a bunch of Americans. Depending on where you are, there is massive lack of inventory and huge buyer demand. A great equation for quick home sales for your client. However, in some areas, such as Agoura Hills CA, why are home sales a bit sluggish? You can talk to 100 agents and get 100 different theories. I will be agent number 101! Interest rates are incredibly favorable with the 30 yr fully amortizing conforming loan rate dipping under 4.20%. People have the perception that the economy is back and are spending a bit more than they have before. People seem to have a little bit of cash back in their bank accounts. There is massiv...

We have this great place in Agoura hills called "The Canyon Club". Lots of really hip and wonderful performers have played here. It's a seriously small "dive" located at the Wizen's Center in Agoura HIlls, along the 101 Freeway. We have seen some super great performers there: Howie Mandell (who made much fun of the the "Whizen's center" aspect"), Craig Shumaker (the funniest comedian on the planet), B B King, Queen Nation, Ted Nugent, Kenny Loggins, just a few of the wonderful performers who are willing to come to "the burbs" and bless us with their music. This weekend we have: (are you ready for this) JEFFERSON STARSHIP!!

We May Be In a Stabilized Home Selling Market With all the news about huge increases in home selling prices, there is a weird thing going on. In the Agoura Hills CA area of suburban Los Angeles for instance there is an approximate 3.6 months of inventory on the market right now as we are knee deep into Springtime. As we know a solid stable market usually runs between 6-7 months of inventory so one would expect under the current conditions that homes would be flying off the shelves. However, there are signs that we may be in a stabilized home selling market.   Don't get me wrong. Home are selling and selling well, however they are taking some time. We have found that buyers are looking for substantially move in ready condition homes and have an eye towards value. Homes on busier streets,...

The Hidden Gems in Your House in Agoura Hills CA Well, the news is in.  Activerain (a blogging forum for real estate agents and others in that line of work) conducted a survey and had 1,500 responses from agents posing certain questions pertaining to hidden gems that may be part of a home which are not necissarily part of the purchase price. Some of the top choices are to be expected, such as neighborhood quality, green space and amazing views. The top choices seen here are really the hidden gems in your house in Agoura Hills CA.  Most are very applicable to our gorgeous mountain and oak tree backdrops.  It is like they took the survey about Agoura Hills, even though it was from around the country. What is a bit interesting is the lack of value agents put on a corner lot and closets.  C...
