In Honor of all Veterans on Veteran's Day 2009I would like to take this opportunity to honor all the Veterans, both past and present who have served on behalf of our country. The Veterans have made many sacrifices and endured many hardships on behalf of our country, and these sacrifices have ensured our freedom. I want to express my gratitude to them.My thoughts and prayers are with those at Fort Hood, Texas  who recently lost their lives as a result of this senseless shooting. And my heart is with their friends and families who may have a lost a loved one or sustained an injury during that shooting.I am very grateful for all who have served on behalf of our country, and today is a day to remember our Veterans and honor them. Newport Beach has a tribute, which is a large flag at Veteran...

 Take a look at Newport Beach prices right now compared to 2 years ago. I constantly get asked what is the market going to do? I don't know, I wish I had a crystal ball. What I do know is that in Newport Beach, Real Estate is a great investment. I remember back in the late 1990's not being able to buy investment properties and boy did I regret it! I know the same thing will happen again. Take a look at the chart above and you will see an increase recently. Today the median list price in Newport Beach is $1,950,000. That doesn't mean that's what the median price sold will be. With 476 single family homes for sale and the average days on market being 222, the market is trending to be a little slow. This is typical of this time of the year. If you are a seller the depletion of inventory c...
