Monthly Real Estate Market Reports may vary as you surf the internet from one real estate website to another.  The phenomena can be attributed to the timeliness of the information being distributed.  Using a local real estate agent is always a good way to get the most current information.  Here are a few of the local stats for March 2012, as provided by Escrow Junction's Market Condition Report - March 2012 Supply of homes on the Market:  294 Percentage selling in the last 30 days: 61% Average Days on Market:  71 Median Ask Price:  $139k Median Close Price $115k These stats are believed to be accurate but not guaranteed.  They detail the resale market only.  The numbers are intended to be generally descriptive, not definitive.

A happy buyer and a happy seller makes for a VERY happy REALTOR! 8448 Milpas in Apple Valley, a house that sits on top of the world, well at least the valley has a new owner and is ready for new adventures. The new owner loves the sun room and watching the sun rises from the house in the morning. It was the end to a happy day when Eric the new owner and Mary, the seller and I met at the house to officially pass the keys over and welcome Eric to his new home. In CA we do not, "table close". So many times the buyer and the seller never met. I'm not recommending every transaction work like this, but in this case the seller was there for all the inspections and was able to assist the buyer with and and all question that the buyer had.   The key exchange   Flowers from the buyer for the sell...

Hello to everyone reading this. This is my first ever blog post anywhere.  I joined Active Rain back in June as a paying member.  I have been a Realtor for more than twenty years.  I started with Century 21 in 1991.  I stayed there for several years and after two franchise name changes, I moved to Re/Max where I stayed for more than 15 years.  I obtained my Broker license in 2006 and left Re/Max in 2009 to work for myself as Action Realty. In future blog posts, I plan to include useful information about my local market and the areas I serve. Good luck to everyone in the new year. Matthew Sturkie

A client and his wife were looking to buy in our area, she had gone back home to be with the kids and the husband stayed here to go to work and find a house.   He and I were looking all afternoon and it was getting late and I was hungry.   I checked in at home and my husband said that he had made ribs, which translates to lots of food at my house.  I asked him if he would like company for dinner.   So I bring my client home to eat.   We are just visiting and getting to know each other and casually mention that there is a house around the corner, maybe we can walk over after dinner and look at it. but it's only 3 bedroom and they wanted a 4 bedroom for their 6 kids. So after dinner I put my flip flops on (I normally work in heals), put the dogs on their leashes, grabbed the hubby, and my...
