Many of you have been waiting to buy real estate when you see the market bottom out. Unfortunately the media does not publicize this information until a few months past the bottom. It happens all the time. Take a look at the chart above and notice the price decline in Newport Beach. I don't have a crystal ball so i don't know for sure when the bottom will hit, but I do know that if you see a home that you love and you can afford it, you should probably buy it. Interest rates are extremely low and chances are they will be going up. To get an idea of what homes are available please contact a local Newport Beach Realtor and have them show you around. They should be able to advise you on the current market and wether homes of interest to you are priced properly.

It seems it's that time of the year again when buyers are out looking to buy. Interest rates are low, and yes they will go up, and prices of many homes are at a substantial savings you can't afford to pass up. It's no secret that real estate has been down these past couple of years. But lately our open houses are swamped. Multiple offers are happening daily and inventory in many areas is getting slim. If the allure of living in Newport Beach is your desire, then take a look at what real estate is doing here.

I have not had time to write much about Balboa Island lately. Myself and everyone in my office are very busy. It's spring and interest rates are low and buyers are out shopping. I got this new software where I can make virtual Tours of whatever I desire. There are so many wonderful shots of balboa Island I feel like I need to share them. It's not perfect but I would sure love to get your input. Would you like to see more Newport Beach communities? Are there any particular areas of interest. Just let me know and I will go out and shoot for you. Please take a look at my Balboa Island Tour. CLICK HERE for a VisualTour of Balboa Island.
