Below is a graph illustrating the Real Estate Activity for Camarillo Single Family Homes, not including  the Santa Rosa Valley Area Homes. The sold numbers represent Camarillo Single Family Homes that sold in June, 2012.As you can see, the inventory levels, especially in the lower price range is very low.  As of this writing, there are only 40 homes active homes for sale under $550,000. This low inventory often creates multiple offers.  Buyers should be prepared to bring their highest and best offer price when looking at purchasing homes in the lower price ranges.In Camarillo, we are seeing less bank owned properties coming on the market and this trend should continue for the foreseeable future.The good news, is most of the lenders and or servicers of short sales have streamlined their ...

Below is the illustration of the Camarillo Real Estate Market Absorption Trend.  This illustration shows that the average list to sales price was consistently in the 96%- 97% range from 2010 to present.The average sales price did appreciate by approximately 1.5% in the last 3 months from the prior six months.  And the average list price appreciated .712% in the same period.The most startling fact presented by the data is the amount of Camarillo Single Family Homes for sale, excluding the Santa Rosa Valley homes.  Currently, there are only 78 Single Family Homes for sale in  Camarillo, and that translates to approximately 1.3 months of inventory which by definition of the Market Absorption Analysis model would put Camarillo Single Family Homes in a sellers market.This lower inventory of ...

Interesting statistics to note from the data illustrated below for the Camarillo Real Estate Market for the month of February 2012 20.8% of the Active Listings are distressed properties (either Short Sales or Bank Owned) 74% of the Under Contract Listings are distressed properties 60.8% of the Sold Listings are distressed properties. Days on Market for Active Listings is 116. Days on Market for Listings under Contract is 139. Days on Market for Sold Listings is 116. This is not on the chart below.....however it is an important aspect of the Camarillo Real Estate Market, so I do want to mention it,  of the 149 active listings in Camarillo only 41 properties are priced under $350,000.  Not a lot of inventory in this price range, more demand than supply which is keeping the prices at the m...

The Real Estate Market Trend illustration below shows that Camarillo Single Family Homes sales have declined from the high levels recorded in 2005-2006. The Camarillo Real Estate was not excluded from the Real Estate meltdown, however Camarillo has a higher price point than a few of the other close in proximity cities to it. Camarillo has a declining inventory, especially in the lower price range and the demand is high, therefore keeping Camarillo Single Family Homes quite stable for the last few years. Camarillo does have a higher percentage of  Single Family Homes price $500,000 to $749,999  and Single Family Homes priced $750,000 and above, so this needs to be remembered when looking at data using only average Camarillo Single Family Homes. It does give a good insight to the overall ...

The Camarillo Real Estate Market Aborption Trend January 2012 illustrates that the average sales price for the last 3 months is only 3.4% down from the average sales price of 2010.  And while that is not reason to raise the roof in celebration, it does show that prices are beginning to stabilize. The inventory in Camarillo of lower priced property is pitiful, which does often times create bidding wars and buyers are told to bring their best offer in first!

Rasak, SFR               The theory behind short sales seems simple enough: If a homeowner owes more money on a house than the house can sell for, and the homeowner is struggling to pay the mortgage, the lender will allow the house to be sold for less than is owed. For obvious reasons, lenders are not big fans of short sales and often make it a complicated process. More and more we are finding that lenders are getting on board as they realize the over 80% of the few loan modifications they’ve granted end up in default.             In April 2010, The Home Affordable Alternatives Program ...
