Coto de Caza, CA Real Estate News

For its last move in an action-filled year, the Federal Reserve announced it will begin buying its pledged $500 billion in mortgage-backed securities next month. For home buyers, the timing couldn't be better. Because December 31 is one of Wall Street's most thinly-traded days of the year, low volume is exaggerating the announcement's impact on mortgage markets. Mortgage rates are lower this morning. However, you may not have much time to act.  Few mortgage lenders permit after-hours rate locking and bond markets close at 2:00 PM ET for the holiday.  If you miss today's Fed-fueled low rates, markets re-open Friday for your second chance.

The story of Coto de Caza It took twenty years for Coto de Caza's market to arrive. When it first opened in 1976 as a master-planned community, it was an isolated corner of Orange County, 12 miles inland and 18 miles southeast of Irvine, in the canyon lands east of Mission Viejo. In the ensuing years, during market downturns and ownership changes, the vision of a woodland-filled, environmentally attuned master-planned community has never wavered. Now that population and employment centers and road access have expanded to its doorstep, Coto de Caza's homesites are nearing buildout, with just a handful of custom lots still available. Coto de Caza (idiomatically translated from the Portuguese as "The preserve of the hunt") originated as a working ranch in the 1700s, with a hunting lodge an...

Not all markets are hurting.  Coto de Caza has seen some tough times in the under $1.5 million price range but the higher price points seem to be hanging in there. Ken Bowen with Remax recently sold this home in Coto de Caza for $19,500,000 - $4.5 million over the last highest sale ever recorded in Coto.  I actually showed this home well over a year ago to a client.  It is a stunning property, but WOW.  On the market for 582 days.  Worth the wait I'd say.  Congrats to Ken.
