How Do I keep My Clients Informed?

In my opinion there is nothing more important than keeping the lines of communication open during the process of buying and or selling.  It is a top priority to always make sure that my clients are informed on whatever situation is at hand and provide them with all the information needed to make a sound decision.

On the buyer’s side – there are a couple ways I can keep you in the know about the market. I’m constantly checking my “hot sheet” throughout the day, almost every hour, which instantly gives me updates about the market: what is new on the market, what has gone into escrow, what has sold; ultimately furthering my knowledge as to benefit my buyers.  If a new listing comes on the market, not only will I be notified, but you also receive an email from an automatic search I’ve set up for you based you your parameters. Once we find a property and make an offer, I always want to develop good communication with the listing agent so they would feel comfortable working with me and ultimately accept our offer.  Once we have an offer accepted there are strict time lines that the buyer has to follow as part of the purchase contract.  During the escrow period is the most important time to keep my clients informed as to what is next!

On the selling side – I feel that it is important to provide my clients with bi-weekly updates, (if not weekly), as to the showings and feedback data. Additionally, every 30 days I provide a detailed market analysis, informing you about the market conditions, any recent sales, a detailed breakdown of the analytics, and a complete report of all showing logs, feedback from other agents and prospective buyers.  In addition to maintaining open lines of communication via phone calls and emails, these updates are the best way I can keep you, as a seller, informed about the status of your property.

In summation, there are many moving parts that are happening during a transaction and there is nothing worse than keeping someone in the dark.  Therefore, keeping in touch and updating my clients on the process of selling or buying is a top priority of mine.

Is the San Diego Area Growing or Declining?

     I have seen the San Diego area continue to grow. It is expanding almost upwards north as far as it can go and outwards east as far as it can. There is not an abundance of vacant property now to be developed, although, Scripps Ranch is a great area that is growing. The city is moving east toward Santee and those areas are highly desirable, with more custom homes. The San Diego market area is growing and hopefully we can continue to see jobs increase and sustain this growth. I think we are currently in a very healthy market, however, in 2005 (the “boom”) it was $0 down and 100% financing where one could get in their home then refinance to a regular loan rather than an interest only loan. Now, on the flip-side in 2014, we’re in such a healthy market where you can put money down, (typically) get in with equity, and many appraisals are coming in over purchase price which is a very good sign. In San Diego as a whole, there are lots of sales and the sale volume is there. In addition, the prices are creeping upward. Not at such a vertical rate, which I’ve seen in the past, it’s more of a steady climb. In the upper end properties we’re seeing bigger sales, waterfront sales, $16 million sales, $24M sales – even in La Jolla, Del Mar and oceanfront properties. That market range is usually the last to fall, so when those properties start selling and those prices are attained, that’s a very good sign for everyone in the lower price ranges. With that being said, I believe our market is strong and will continue to thrive.
