San Marcos 3-Bedroom Townhouse Condo SOLD Near Cal State University Congratulations to the sellers of 824 Almond Road on the sale of their beautiful 2004 3-bedroom 3-bath townhome in the gated community of Coronado Ranch just a few minutes from the California State University San Marcos campus. The sellers did a bang-up job getting this home ready to show in very short order. They staged it…on their own… and we hit the market with great anticipation.  Buyers and agents flocked to the property almost immediately and the home went into escrow at full price in 6 days after several offers. We just closed, 30 days after offer acceptance. Both parties did a terrific job from start to finish, and the buyer agent was fantastic to work with from the beginning.  Congratulations to my sellers who ...

What’s my Escondido Home Worth? Escondido Real Estate Market in March 2015 Escondido is an inland community, about 17 miles from the coast and just east of San Marcos. Like its neighbors, San Marcos, Vista and Oceanside, Escondido has seen fairly significant changes in the real estate market with a large number of short sales and foreclosures, although that has shifted in the last couple of years in a much more positive direction. As a buyer or seller in the housing market in Escondido, understanding recent trends and current market conditions is essential so you can make informed decisions about buying and selling Escondido homes; media reports focus on general market conditions and do not provide an accurate picture of the local Escondido real estate market. READ MORE:  A Tour of Esco...

Reprinted from Home Value Leads blog https://www.homevalueleads.com/dont-need-no-stinking-badges/: “How’s the real estate market?” asked the elderly gentleman in line behind me at the grocery store.  At first, I was taken back by his question.  Why would a random stranger talk to me?  How does he know I’m a real estate agent?  And then I remembered:  Duh, I’m wearing my name badge! “The market’s continuing to rise, but a bit slower than this summer.  It’s probably going to level off in winter.  Why, are you thinking about selling your house?”  I asked with a grin. “Not right now.  We’re downsizing to a retirement home in about 2 years, so I’m trying to time the market for the best time to sell,” he answered. “Would you like me to send you some stats about your local area?” I asked.  “I ...

Construction could be strong for 10 years, labor shortage possible Oh those sweet sounds. Brings music to my ears. How long has it been since we've heard that there could be a labor shortage in San Diego? Judging from this article the construction industry should be booming for the next decade.   Bycor contractors upbeat for 2015.   But be you an architect, engineer, builder or an owner of one of these  forthcoming construction projects don't become a victim because you didn't plan and prepare your project properly or you may end up spending a lot more money down the road by having to deale with a company like ours to provide a very costly foundation retrofit or repair a cracked or settling slab and foundation.   Go that extra distance and make sure the professionals you hire do all the...
