In the continued market recovery the amount of home inventory has declined for the last 18 months. This is great news, especially for homeowners concerned about their equity. With inventory low, buyers compete more and more for homes to buy. {Corona Short Sale Agent} Here's a graph that visualizes the market trend of late. This graph is of Corona Homes and the Days on the market they last.

VAST MAJORITY OF REAL ESTATE SALES CLOSE ABOVE ASKING PRICE IN CORONA CA There was a 16.9% jump in the number of homes for sale in Corona, California, on a month to month basis, and a 5.4% increase, when compared to July of last year. Although available inventory has crept up in the past several months, it still pales in comparison to the number of real estate listings that were on the market throughout most of 2012. In addition, the supply of homes for sale remains very low, considering the size of Corona, and multiple offers are still common and widespread. This is the primary reason that home prices have continued to rise this summer, in spite of inventory and interest rate increases. Pending home sales decreased 6.4% month over month, and fell by a remarkable 48.6% year over year. T...

CORONA REAL ESTATE LISTINGS JUMP NEARLY 28 PERCENT IN JUNE 2013 The number of homes for sale in Corona, California jumped 27.8% between the end of May and June 2013. However, the year over year listing stats still reflect a drop of more than 24%, and the lack of Corona real estate inventory continues to drive home prices upward. Another factor driving the increase in prices is the major decline in distressed sales. Compared to June of last year, foreclosure listings fell 29.4% and short sale listings have plummeted over 84%. Pending home sales showed very little change month over month, but dropped by 46.2%, when comparing June 2013 to one year earlier. This drastic change was inevitable, given the incredibly low inventory level of available homes for sale in Corona. Closed real estate ...

The Difference Between Success versus Failure     The truth is that the difference between success and failure is only by a “Slight Edge”. I was wondering what some of the secrets are to a successful life. What made one succeed and another fail. What was the slight edge that successful people have over those who fail?     I picked up “The Slight Edge” by Jeff Olson and once again could not put the book down.  New revelations, knowledge and renewed vision started to pop off the pages. Reading the book again brought out a newer and better understanding of what slight edge really means. Each page is filled with the secrets to a successful life and career.     The difference between the 5% of the population that made it from the 95% who are still on the wrong path has truly to do with their...

July is Ice Cream Month in Eastvale CA   Do you know who invented the ice cream cone? Was it Charles Minches or do you believe the credit goes to Italo Marchiony, who has a patent for the "ice cream bowl"? No matter, I am just thankful that I can enjoy such a tasty treat without having to use a bowl and spoon. July is the month set aside as National Ice Cream month. It was first proclaimed as National ice cream month in 1984 by President Ronald Reagan. So to honor this great celebration, we should all taste a different flavor of ice cream every day of the month. Anyone up for the challenge in Eastvale CA?

Eastvale Firework Safety Tips           July 4th is right around the corner. This is the day that we set aside to celebrate the birth of our precious Nation. On Thursday, we will be celebrating 237 years of freedom with City parades, picnic at the parks, BBQ's, and fireworks at night.   As we enjoy the festivities, one important warning and alert is to let the professionals handle the fireworks. Too many injuries occur every year unnecessarily. There are even risks with consumer fireworks, such as sparklers and firecrackers. Did you know that the tip of sparklers can actually cause third degree burns? Why not sit back, relax, pull up a chair, grab an apple pie, sip on a cold drink and just enjoy the festivities.     Have a Safe and Joyous July 4th Celebration!   Eastvale Firework Safety...

July is Ice Cream Month in Eastvale CA     photo by: literatureviewed.blogspot.com     Were you aware that President Ronald Reagan designated July as the National Ice Cream month? Did you know that the 3rd Sunday of July is designated as the National Ice Cream day? President Reagan called on all citizens to observe these festivities. I am beginning to feel a special closeness on our late president. I have a feeling that he must have had a sweet tooth...first jelly beans and now I discover that he loved ice cream.       It is said that over 90% of our national population enjoys ice cream. Now whoever doesn't enjoy this delightful treat, please raise your hand. Don't think we will see many hands going up, especially in Southern California.
