People ask me every day how the market is doing. As I have said before, the market can only be evaluated on a location and price point basis
. The one thing I do know for sure that can be applied to all price points is that San Diego is currently in the middle of the single greatest move up market we have ever seen.
Surprised? Simple math will demonstrate that you shouldn’t be.
Let’s assume that back in 2007 you owned a home that was worth $700,000 at the time. Now let’s assume that your true absolute dream home had a value of $2,800,000. That means that you were $2.1 million dollars from the home of your dreams.
Fast forward to today and your home that was once worth $700,000 may be worth $500,000. Seems like a bad thing on first glance, but the beautiful thing about it is that your dream home that was once worth $2.8 million is now worth only $2 million, which represents roughly a 30% drop...
It's a funny market we have today. Some homes are fought over as if they were the last shelter available on earth and others sit on the market for a very long time. Granted this is mainly a price point issue, but the problem is that sellers and their agents are making one of the cardinal mistakes of real estate marketing. They make the assumption that each property is to be treated the same. The truth is, not all homes are created equal.
In today's market sellers and agents need to be ahead of the curve. They need to be innovative and have progressive ideas that will get properties sold. Not every property can be sold in the same manner and not every marketing method has only one application. This is especially true as the price of the home starts to near or exceed $1,000,000.
Auctions are a great example of the above. Whenever anybody thinks of a property being sold at auction they automatically think of a bank or distressed sale. Well I have news for you....that...
