Fifty Homes and Counting, Will Yours Be Next?

I am extremely excited to say that we already have 50 homes under contract in 2016. To give you some perspective, in all of 2015 we closed on 122 homes. If we keep up this pace we’re going to smash our old record. But what does this mean for you and your family?

We are doing fantastic work right now, but why does this matter to you? Well, everyone seems to ask about when the best time to sell a home is. This is a difficult question to answer in San Diego because we have a year-round market.

I recommend that you forget what month it is when you decide to sell your home and focus more on the levels of supply and demand. It’s that simple. Wait until there is low inventory if you want to capitalize on a home sale.

You can sell a home in January just as easily as you can in July, but that doesn’t mean you’ll have a top dollar sale. Pay attention to the market if you want to sell for top dollar.

Free Job Course Being Offered to Young Adults

Once students graduate college, the pressure of finding a job can be a rather exhausting and frightening experience. The San Diego North Educational Foundation is aware of just how stressful this post college job search can really be, which is why they are now offering Strategies for Success, a new, free program designed to help high school seniors, community college and vocational students improve their presentation and leaderships skills in order to increase their chances of landing a job.

Strategies for Success was created to address students’ specific needs identified by employers, institutions of higher education and research efforts by the San Diego Workforce Partnership. These organizations have come to find that recent high school graduates or trade certificate holders have technical skills; however, they lack certain life skills that allow them to be an asset to employers and ultimately become successful. Last month, the North San Diego Business Chamber first offered this curriculum to their member organizations as an all-day Leadership Academy course for a fee. The feedback and registrations were so successful and the employees were thrilled to get back to their jobs and use the skills and tools they learned in the course.

When asked what the students should expect to get out of this course, Brandie Erbe, the North San Diego Business Chamber Communications Manager, explained that “After attending these classes, participants will walk away with practical tools that give them an inner confidence on the job, elevate their ability to work well with others and provide a polished presentation to employers.” The...
