Looking at the data from April of 2013-April of 2014 the first item of note is in Newport Beach, Huntington Beach and Costa Mesa the number of new listings is much greater then 12 months ago. On top of that the number of homes for sale (supply) has increased in most of these cities as well. Also of note the average price of homes has increased very nicely in all cities. Overall the market looks much more healthy then it did at this time last year. We are noticing some sellers pricing their homes a little high in some areas. Make sure check out the comparables homes priort to making any offer. Too much supply and there is less appreciation while too many buyers makes the prices rise too fast.

Selling a home can sometimes be complicated, and when it involves extended family, it's always complicated. This was the case with the home our family put up for sale in the Los Angeles area. Once Dave was involved as our realtor, however, our experience became over the top excellent. He made sure to be in contact with us daily, and gave us advice on everything from an appropriate list price to how to stage the home to what offers to accept from potential buyers-and everything else in between. Plus, he made sure to keep all extended family in the loop and was always reachable any time day or night. I can speak for all of my family when I say that once he came on board as our realtor, everything went so much smoother. Dave and Coastal Real Estate are the smartest, most effective real estate group out there. Whether you live in Los Angeles like I do, or anywhere in Southern California, use them to help sell your home. -Jennifer M
