Discount brokerages/shops are becoming more and more common these days,
but today I’ve got an important message to share about their services.

As many of you may know, the real estate market is changing. For those of you who have thought about selling in the next few weeks, months, or the coming years, you’ve likely noticed the impact of these changes first-hand during your preliminary research.

Discount brokerages/shops have been popping up all over the country and here in San Diego County. They promise dramatically decreased commissions and a quick sale. As someone who’s passionate about a great deal myself, I understand this completely.

However, what these brokerages don’t tell you is that discounted fees will also mean discounted service and ultimately the price they get for your property. You may save a few thousand dollars in commission, but the diminished level of service/marketing/contacts/negotiating skills will potentially cost you tens of thousands because it’s not what they do. True professional Realtors fight to get you as much money for your home as possible.

In the age of the internet, online services can serve as a convenient alternative to more traditional methods of securing goods or services. However, is the supposed convenience actually worth it when it means your bottom line will be drastically lower?

Online and discount services like these are driving home prices and values down all over the country and San Diego County which is why certain communities around the country are going so far as to try to ban them.


Are you really saving money with the
discount shops and online brokerages?

The bottom line is this: These services may initially sound like a good deal, but they’re actually very harmful to the industry and to your success as a seller.

Traditional, full-time agents like me will have the knowledge, experience, and track record you need and deserve when it comes time to sell your home.

When it comes to real estate, you get what you pay for. Don’t trust your success to a discount brokerage/shop that can only offer discounted results.

If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Your June 2018 Real Estate Market Update

Home prices are increasing, but inventory is shrinking in our San Diego market. If you are a buyer, buy now—do not wait any longer.

Ok, so we’re halfway through 2018... so what’s happening in the market today?

1. New homes coming on the market are up about 4%, which is great for buyers but still lower than we would like.

2. Homes entering escrow are about the same—again, everything sells in San Diego.

3. Home prices have increased 6% - 8% depending on where you live in San Diego County, which is exactly what I said a year ago. And for you renters, if you were looking to buy a $500,000 house last year and decided to wait, you just lost $40,000 in equity.

 

Stop waiting to buy—there is not
going to be any major crash.

4. Total homes for sale is down about 2%—inventory is continuing to shrink and the number of days a home is on the market is continuing to shrink as well. This is great for sellers, but tough on buyers, but if you have a good agent/broker who can package your offer correctly, you will get a house.

5. Most activity seems to be with the move-up sellers and buyers—lots of activity for smaller homes/condos/townhomes and less competition for more expensive property.

So don’t waste any more time—move up. And you renters out there, stop missing out on $40,000 a year. Call me and I will help you. It’s what I do.


If you have any more questions about our market or you have any real estate needs at all, please reach out to me. I look forward to speaking with you.

Do you have private mortgage insurance? If so, here’s something very important that you should know.

I know a lot of you out there are paying for PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) which can be as much as $400 a month. Private Mortgage Insurance is a premium you are charged because when you purchased your home you didn’t have 20% of the purchase price to put as a down payment. This protects the lender in the event you (borrower) stops making payments.

If you haven't noticed, housing prices have been on the rise for several years and many of you now have 20% equity -- And what a shock— your lender isn’t telling you this.



You can save yourself $200 to $400 a month.

You need to call me right away!! I will run comparables (comps) based on recent sales in your neighborhood and give you a good idea if you now have 20% equity which will potentially save you hundreds of dollars a month. If you do, contact your lender straightaway to have them run an official appraisal to validate your current equity and eliminate your PMI!! Start saving $$$$$$$$ today!

If you’re curious about this or have questions about the value of your home, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’m here to help!
