Its always important to know your market so here are some stats from a few cities in Orange County from July of 2013. I have illustrated the change from July of 2012. Green for an increase and Red for a decrease.
As you can see from the data above prices have been on the rise in Orange county for the last year. Looking at the decreasing number of homes for sale in Newport Beach and most cities you can expect prices to be on the rise for the foreseeable future. What's the basic rule of economics, low supply equals higher demand?
David is a great realtor. He helped us buy our first home. It was a short sale and was quite a process but David kept in regular touch with the banks and seller's agent and helped us complete the process. Very happy in our house. David is also very patient which is a great trait considering my wife and I ran him ragged on many of days looking at numerous properties, sometimes multiple times. I would and have recommended David to other friends looking for a realtor. Steve E
