Vicki Lloyd is a Realtor who lived and worked in Lake Forest, in South Orange County, California.
The Lake Forest real estate market is tough right now - for sellers, for buyers & for agents! While there are a lot of listings active on the MLS, when they are divided up by size, price, and locations, there really isn't much to choose from. Today, out of 344 properties on the market, 58% of the...
For my sellers in Lake Forest, Rancho Santa Margarita, Mission Viejo, and other South Orange County areas, here is a list of important, but not totally obvious hints to follow when your house is on the market. If you have an answering machine - turn the volume to either "off" or "0″.  You don't w...
I have some good news & bad news about the Lake Forest real estate market.  Today, there are 74 homes in escrow!  That is more than we have seen for quite a while, so there is hope that the "spring market" is actually coming alive!  Hopefully, with the new loan limits, and the Fed pouring money i...
I just spent several days this week inspecting South Orange County REOs. The quality, condition and pricing run the distance from "Wow - pretty nice!" to "Gag - what's that smell?"   I saw a lot of REOs back in the mid-1990s and sold more than a few at that time. They also offered a wide range of...
Total sales volume of homes in Orange County, California, for 2007 was off about 28% from the volume of 2006, but it was off 56% from our record year of 2003!  This includes all residential transactions for homes and condos priced above $50,000 (to avoid erroneous data like time-shares, mobile ho...
The Lake Forest market, as well as surrounding cities in the South Orange County area, seem to be picking up the pace a little now. The inventory has shrunk some, as many sellers have taken their homes off the market for the holidays, and the prices are now noticeably lower than last summer. I ha...
After posting my list of interesting (and potentially profitable) properties that are foreclosed, bank-owned, REOs, I checked back to find that 7 of the 9 have already sold.  While I had really thought that these represented the best values in that category, it was still nice to see my insight co...
There are currently 494 properties in the Orange County MLS that are coded as Bank Owned, REO or Foreclosures.  There are probably more that aren't coded correctly, but I'm not going to sift through all 17,700 properties that are currently on the market to find them.  Most of these are priced ver...
Lake Forest Real Estate Market Conditions - October 2007 Like many areas across the country, the Lake Forest, California real estate market is chugging along at a snail's pace!  Between the mortgage availability issues and the fear of price declines, buyers seem to be sitting on the fence and it'...
The current market is very slow now, but it is typical for this time of year.  Traditionally, August and September are the months when people's attention is focused on vacations, returning from vacations, or back-to-school activities, and football so this is not unusual.  Next month should pick u...
