Here is my 3rd simple Monterey home sales chart for 2011 closed sales. As you can see these numbers are based on just 65 home sales in Monterey, California and is broken down by the different areas of the city of Monterey. Those of you that are familiar with Monterey will recognize the names and know the areas.    Again, this is just 3 bedroom and 2 bath single family homes in Monterey, California.

Another simple chart of the "average" days on the market and sale price to list price ration for the year 2011 of single family homes that are 3 bedroom and 2 baths. My take on the sale price to list price ratio is that homes are selling at close to the asking price because homes in this market are being priced at market price, interests are low, and buyer confidence is up. Average days on the market DOM is not bad either when you consider that about 1/3 at least of the market is short sale/foreclosure or some type of distressed sale.

Above is a very simple look at the all 2011 closed sales of single family homes that are 3 bedroom and 2 bathrooms for Monterey, California. When I look at this it doesn't seem right because the market feels so much busier to me.  You will notice that the larger numbered middle column is a combination of Actives and Pendings and a large market of homes sales in the Monterey area are foreclosures and/or short sales that do take longer to close. Monterey, California is just one city that makes up the Monterey Peninsula and I chose to use only 3 bedroom 2 bath homes for the sake of ease. There are lots of good homes buys in Monterey at this time and with rates at an all time low, now is the time to make the decision to purchase a home here on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula! Thanks Donna...

LAW AGAINST SHORT SALE DEFICIENCIES EXPANDED In a major victory for REALTORS®, Governor Brown signed into law today a C.A.R.-sponsored bill, Senate Bill 458, prohibiting a deficiency after a short sale for one-to-four residential units, regardless of whether the lender is a senior or junior lienholder. Effective immediately for transactions closing escrow from this day forward, both senior and junior lienholders cannot require a borrower to owe or pay for a deficiency in a short sale. This law also prohibits any deficiency judgment to be requested or rendered for senior or junior liens after a short sale of one-to-four residential units. Any purported waiver of this rule shall be void and against public policy. Although a lender cannot require a borrower to pay any additional compensati...

We moved recently--just across town. I am a super organized person and prior to the move, I contacted all utilites, friends, movers, everyone that is remotely involved with my move..I planned well in advance--as I do for most things in my life! I packed, planned, sold things in advance, lots of cleaning out and letting go of things! We have been in our new home about 7 weeks. Today our dog, Charlie had an appt. at the vet and all of a sudden it hit me...I had not changed his records on his microchip. So if he had become lost or somehow gotton away from us at our new location and was found--all of that contact information would not have gotton him returned to us. So I had him scanned at the vet to confirm the chip number and they gave me the website and telephone number of the service so...

Don’t miss Nationwide Open House Weekend 2011 this weekend! This weekend, Saturday, June 4, and Sunday, June 5 is Nationwide Open House Weekend. With interest rates at yearly lows and housing affordability at its highest level in 20 years, thousands of real estate professionals across the country are teaming up this weekend to hold open houses in their communities to spotlight home ownership.  I am not a huge fan of holding open house. I think that there are so many other ways to market and expose a home that is for sale. But, I like the idea of a Nationwide Open House! Ask your REALTOR® how you can view properties participating in this nationwide, or look for signs and balloons in your neighborhood alerting you to an open house participating.

A day at Carmel Beach with the kids                     No matter where you are, as long as there is a beach, a day at the beach is a good day! We took the kidsto Carmel Beach yesterday right after we bought them new bikes for their birthday. One of the twins just started to ride without training wheels and the other is almost there. Carmel Beach has a scenic trail along the street and above the beach that I thought would be a good place to ride as well as take in the beautiful scenery. Of course, lots of other people had the same idea....the girls enjoyed their ride and were able to manuver thru the joggers, walkers and various dogs along the way. Sunshine Freestyle Surfabout Then we stumbled upon the 31st annual Sunshine Freestyle Surfabout and stopped to watch the surfers compete. I ...
