Buyers lose Control, Sellers Take Charge   in Newport Coast   Home Sellers Take the Power Seat Daily Real Estate News | Thursday, May 30, 2013 The housing recovery has “transformed the mind-set of many buyers and sellers who grew accustomed to the buyers’ market we saw for years,” says Rick Davidson, CEO of Century 21. "Buyer confidence is building back up and demand is strong... sellers are now in a more favorable position." Eight-five percent of 365 home buyers recently surveyed by the real estate brokerage said they are willing to make compromises when buying a home in order to get a transaction complete.  Tighter inventories of for-sale homes have prompted more buyers to get less picky and to realize that they'll face competing offers when trying to purchase a home.  The Century 21 ...

A Visit to Crystal Cove in Southern California and Lunch at The Beachcomber Cafe   A visit to Crystal Cove is a step back in time, where the beach and the historic cottages remain much like they were in the 1920s and 1930s.   Now a state park (since 1979 with 2400 acres of woodland overlooking the ocean) and 12-acre historic site, north of Laguna Beach and south of Corona del Mar and the Newport coast, Crystal Cove is a special place to enjoy  - a gorgeous beach, a bit of history,and the Beachcomber Cafe.   Crystal Cove has been a popular beach resort area for generations, and many Hollywood films have used the site as well. These historic cottages are available for rent (except those in the 3rd phase of refurbishment) and have spectacular ocean views and charm.   Access to historic Cry...

Is now a good time to sell my home in Newport Coast?   It really depends on what’s going on in the homeowner’s life. Your personal needs and desires take precedence over trying to time the market. If the conditions in your life are such that you want to sell or need to sell, then there certainly is no reason to wait. In fact, this is the best time to sell that we’ve seen in years. The market since the beginning of 2013 has been unseasonably active. Buyers didn’t get the message to take off the period between Thanksgiving and Super Bowl Sunday.     Here are a few reasons why it might be a good time to sell your home in Newport Coast:   Inventory of Homes is Down   There are fewer homes for sale in almost every housing market across the country.

Should I Sell My Home in Newport Coast or Rent It Out?   I have a home in Newport Coast and I can't decide if I should just sell it or rent it out. Help!   For many homeowners, renting out a home is simply not a viable option: they need to sell in order to raise the capital necessary to buy their next home. And owning two homes requires cash reserves. Consider, for example, that there may be periods in which you have no renter or when a tenant may skip one or two months rent. The mortgage payments still have to be paid.   Becoming a landlord is not for the faint of heart. What happens if the roof leaks and you’re away on vacation? There’s always the risk that a tenant could damage your property or cause problems that lead to an eviction.   On the other hand there are also excellent reas...
