COVID-19 Real Estate Accommodations

We Are Here For You

Buyer & Seller Video Consultation

To practice social distancing, we have made all necessary accommodations !  Our team has the technology capabilities to have consultations via webinar or video for all buyers and sellers consultations. Anyone still curious about the Real Estate Market currently? Schedule your consultation today ! Call Todat -714 203 6877

I just want you to know I’m here to help…

My phone number is 714 203 6877

My heart goes out to our families with children with schools shut down, our seniors in assisted living, our neighbors at the hospitals, our local businesses struggling and anyone impacted by this pandemic.

I’ve been selling real estate for years here in North Orange County and Los Angeles . I’m fortunate to know people who may be able to help you out for a trip to the grocery store, watching children, or even getting bills paid.

You’ll be surprised how many good people are here i happy to help you. Call me, again, if you need anything. My number is 714 203 6877. It does not need to be about real estate. It can be a personal issue. I'll see if I can assist in some way.

Of course, I’ve been asked “How do I sell my home at this time?”

Homes are still selling. Our Federal Reserve just dropped their interest rate to near zero to keep the money moving for people buying homes. It’s quite unprecedented.

We can video conference, if you prefer, instead of an in-home selling consultation. I’ll likely have enough information to list it for sale with a quick tour on your phone, tablet, or laptop.

I’ll even guide you how to shoot photos, if you prefer, to keep a photographer out of your home. You'll be surprised what we can do with Photoshop and an iPhone these days.

We may be able to sell it without showings, too. There are individuals and companies who will buy your home outright. I can refer you to those companies and shop the offers.

If we do need to show your home, I’ll provide a hand washing station and anything else the CDC recommends to lower everyone's risk of infection. Safety is my #1 priority for you.

Some of the top Google searches now in real estate are “home prices dropping” and “home prices falling”. That’s not the case at this time. I'll keep you updated on this.

I’m here to guide you and make fact-based, researched decisions if you need to sell your home (or buy one) since life must go on for those in situations who need to move.

That may be you or someone you know. I have your back.

I’m here to help if you need anything. Let me know.

My number is 714 203 6877

11 Critical Home Inspection Traps to be Aware of Weeks Before Listing Your Home for Sale

Socal Home - According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale.
Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That's why it's critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away.
Altogether. In most cases, you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you know what you're looking for, and knowing what you're looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones.

  Homebuyers Want to Know Your Home Inside And Out While homebuyers are as individual as the homes they plan on purchasing, one thing they share is a desire to ensure that the home they will call their own is as good beneath the surface as it appears to be. Will the roof end up leaking? Is the wiring safe? What about the plumbing? These, and others, are the questions that the buyers looking at your home will seek professional help to answer. According to industry experts, there are at least 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection. We’ve identified the 11 most common of these and, if not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. In most cases, you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you know what you’re looking for. And knowing what you’re looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. 11 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection When you put your home on the market, you don’t want any unpleasant surprises that could cost you the sale of your home. By having an understanding of these 11 problem areas as you walk through your home, you’ll be arming yourself against future disappointment. Things You Need to know To Pass Your Home Inspection Not intended to solicit property currently listed for sale. 

Here are 3 of the 11 that you should know about right now.

1. Defective Plumbing Defective plumbing can manifest itself in two different ways: leaking, and clogging. A visual inspection can detect leaking, and an inspector will gauge water pressure by turning on all faucets in the highest bathroom and then flushing the toilet. If you hear the sound of running water, it indicates that the pipes are undersized. If the water appears dirty when first turned on at the faucet, this is a good indication that the pipes are rusting, which can result in severe water quality problems.
 2. Damp or Wet Basement An inspector will check your walls for a powdery white mineral deposit a few inches off the floor, and will look to see if you feel secure enough to store things right on your basement floor. A mildew odor is almost impossible to eliminate, and an inspector will certainly be conscious of it. It could cost you $200-$1,000 to seal a crack in or around your basement foundation depending on severity and location. Adding a sump pump and pit could run you around $750 - $1,000, and complete waterproofing (of an average 3 bedroom home) could amount to $5,000-$15,000. You will have to weigh these figures into the calculation of what price you want to net on your home. 
3. Inadequate Wiring & Electrical Your home should have a minimum of 100 amps service, and this should be clearly marked. Wire should be copper or aluminum. Home inspectors will look at octopus plugs as indicative of inadequate circuits and a potential fire hazard. 4. Poor Heating & Cooling Systems Insufficient insulation, and an inadequate or a poorly functioning heating system, are the most common causes of poor heating. While an adequately clean furnace, without rust on the heat exchanger, usually has life left in it, an inspector will be asking and checking to see if your furnace is over its typical life span of 15-25 yrs. For a forced air gas system, a heat exchanger will come under particular scrutiny since one that is cracked can emit deadly carbon monoxide into the home. These heat exchangers must be replaced if damaged - they cannot be repaired. 
So there are 3 of 11 in an effort to draw attention to the very important topic. If you'd like to see all 11 of the most common inspection traps. I have put together a free report entitled " 11 Critical Home Inspection Traps to be Aware of Weeks Before Listing Your Socal  Home for Sale"  which explains the issues in greater detail.

Housing Crash Predictions?

California’s Housing Market Forecast

In the midst of the unexpected Corona Virus pandemic, buyers are wondering if housing prices will fall and stay lower throughout 2020. Others are wondering about a full housing market crash.

Prices have risen in January and February in Los Angeles

According to a fairly pessimistic view from Capital Economics, US home sales could fall by 35% compared with the last quarter of 2019. This would the lowest sales since the beginning of 1991.

With a work shutdown in effect in California (and UK, Australia, Germany, and Canada), the answer is obvious, home sales will freeze. Home prices will fall. Californian’s can’t buy homes if they can’t get to a showing. All sales activities have come to a halt.  And young buyers may lose their down payment or even their job due to the virus outbreak. Consumers drive the housing markets.

When the virus passes, buyers may find finding and buying a home is affordable.  With mortgage rates at ultra-low levels, this could be an opportune time to buy a house or condo at a bargain price.

How Far Could Housing Prices Fall?

How far will prices likely fall? Experts seem to be of the opinion they won’t drop far. It would take an extended period before buyers give up, and where mortgage defaults occur. New construction was rolling along nicely, but this has likely been slowed considerably.

China’s battle with Covid 19 is coming under control. They’re reporting few new cases of the virus. If the US follows a similar timeline, it might be only a month until the disease passes.

Housing Crash Predictions?

Hoards of millennials, working poor, and homeless people are praying for a California housing market crash, but prices aren’t crashing.

With such strong demand driving the whole California housing market  it’s unlikely a crash will happen. In fact, with the extra economic activity spawned by housing construction and household formation, there is upward price pressure. And the US economy as a whole is booming and we could be looking at an even longer run of economic prosperity.

Interest Rate Goes Up now, why?

U.S Mortgage Rates Surge Again as Lenders Look to Tank Demand

Mortgage rates continued to defy gravity in the week ending 19th March, with 30-year fixed rates rising for a 2nd consecutive week.

 

Despite the continued spread of the coronavirus across the U.S and risk aversion, 30-year fixed rates surged by 29 basis points to 3.65%. The upside in the week was attributed to a lack of capacity to meet an even greater surge in demand for new mortgages and refinance applications. Lenders cranked up lending rates in yet another bid to curb applications.

 

California Home Prices 

Los Angeles County has seen it’s prices rise 7.8% month to month, and 9% year over year.   

The Real Story of California’s Real Estate Market

The real story of California’s housing market is a persistent lack of supply, something that may never be remedied. That means overall home prices and perhaps rent prices might flash up in 2020.  And this is despite recent high home construction numbers reported across the country.

Active listings fell for the 5th straight month, down 22.5% from last November. This was the 3rd consecutive double-digit drop and the largest since April 2013. Unsold inventory index dropped from 3.7 last year to this November’s rate of 3.0.

 

Will California Real Estate Recover in 2020?

Will real estate recession come?

新冠病毒疫情会把美国加州房产拖入衰退吗?

美股重挫一方面是新冠病毒疫情在全球的蔓延。

目前所发生的就是经济冻住了。就这么简单,人们不愿意彼此接触,无论是坐飞机、住酒店还是开会,”他说,“现在的情况是全球经济快速下行,而且速度非常快。”

政府将会与国会商讨几项措施,以缓和疫情对经济的冲击。这可能包括下调工资税和针对时薪工人提供帮助。受其影响,美国三大股市星期二全面反弹,但距离高位仍有很大距离。

但最终全球经济能否渡过难关仍取决于疫情能否在在几个月内得到控制。目前,中国的疫情看上去似乎得到了控制,包括武汉在内的全国确诊病例数量和新增疑似病例数量都在稳步下降。中国疫情或许得到控制的另一个迹象是中共总书记习近平310日突然前往武汉视察。这是此次疫情爆发以来习近平首次前往武汉。星期二,武汉14家方舱医院的最后一家休舱。

但在中国以外,新冠病毒疫情尚没有出现好转迹象,韩国、意大利和伊朗等国的确诊人数仍在持续增加。中国工程院院士、著名呼吸病专家钟南山最近表示,全球疫情将至少持续到6月份。

如果疫情能够在56月份得到控制,那么今年全球经济有望避免陷入衰退。“如果是这样的话,那么全球经济有望在第二季度实现反弹。

如果全球经济在第二季度实现反弹,你现在准备好了吗?反弹后一切会回到正常轨道,即使这段时间股票大跌,但南加州房屋市场没有太多的衰退迹象。

投资的机会往往是在其他人大量采取行动前,你已经先采取了行动。如果大部分购买者在观望,不敢下手,也许是买进的时机. CNN 报道,美国的搜房网站在这些日子里浏量大大增加,来自亚洲的浏量增加了400%,来自澳洲的浏量增加了200%,来自英国的浏量增加了100%,来自中东和其他国家的浏量也增加了100% 以上。 美国房产,特别是加州房产相对来说是一个避风港。
