You never get a second chance to make a first impression, so anything you can do to wow a buyer as they come through your home is a plus. I have put together 10 of the most common mistakes sellers do when listing a home.

1. Take down all personal photos.

Selling your home

While you and your family might be very photogenic (and apparently love the grateful dead) buyers want to see themselves in a home of their own, not inside YOUR home. Take down any photos of friends and family and only leave wall art that is for lack of a better term "generic".

2. Show off the best features of your home.

You probably remember walking into your house and loving a few things about it. Maybe it was a view of the staircase or it was the master bathroom, whatever it was try

2014 is starting off GREAT! Today we closed on 19292 Hickory Ln in Huntington Beach. This highly sought after home was very difficult to get into and the buyers walked in with equity. This large Huntington Beach home is over 1800 square feet with 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and a nice size yard. Located near Magnolia and Yorktown this gem will be a great long term home for this young couple.

Another home in escrow for Coastal Real Estate Group! Brand new construction in Costa Mesa right off Victoria between Newport Blvd and Harbor Blvd. Construction is still in Phase 1 of 4 and there are more homes available! Both models are 2 bedroom plus an office with 4 bathrooms! They are tri-level single family homes with 2 car attached garages and both models are in between 1700-1800 square feet. These are great homes in Costa Mesa with low HOA dues and are priced starting in the high 500's. Here are a few photos.

Its almost the Thanksgiving and from now until mid January shopping for homes is usually not a top priority. According to the National Association of Realtors the pending home sales index is 1.2% lower then at the same time last year. This is the first time in 29 months that we have actually seen a dip. The good news for buyers is now is the time to get a deal! Homes are sitting on the market a little longer making for some opportunities for motivated buyers.

Most national economists still expect prices to rise in 2014 albeit at a slower pace. Historically the pending home sales

Newport Beach is an amazing place year around. With Halloween around the corner I thought it would be fun to show some great pictures from 2012 of how some Newport Beach surfers get into the Halloween spirit. Most of these were taken at Blackies by the Newport Beach Pier.
