Here's an overview of what prices have been doing nationally. Check with your local trusted REALTOR to get the scoop on your local market as the picture may be different. Here in San Diego County the median sold price in Q2 2015 was $527,000, up 6% over the median for Q2 in 2014 at $497,000. Our local community median prices vary considerably
Some Highlights: The national median home price for Q2 is up 8.2% to $229400; The income needed to afford the median home in each region is directly impacted by the amount of the down payment. The larger the down payment the lower the income needed to pay the monthly mortgage payment.

I thought this was a pretty good tool for buyers to give them answers to many questions they have about houses - plumbing, AC, electrical, fireplaces, the roof, and so much more
Quick answers to the questions buyers ask. Tool for home buyers and sellers, real estate agents and brokers.

+Janis Borgueta Thanks for stopping by. Buyers can easily be overwhelmed with the questions about owning a house and how to care of it

Good article to really explain where house values are now compared to the record in 2006, and the WSJ headline about the new house price record
Last week, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) released their Existing Home Sales Report. The report announced that the median existing-home price in June was $236,400. That value surpasses the peak median sales price set in July 2006 ($230,400).

There have been several recent reports about the significant increase in first time buyers in the housing market for May, although this no doubt varies by location because of the wide variation in prices. Some markets are not very first time buyer friendly due to the increasing prices

Story
Tagline
Former East Coast Boy, Proud Dad, Loving Husband, NEW Grandpa, Blogger, Foodie, Chocoholic, Art Lover & Collector, Carlsbad California REALTOR
Introduction
Former Boston-area East Coast boy now living the Southern California life and selling homes in Carlsbad, CA.

OK, here is some of the "usual" about me stuff...I have 16+ years of corporate Human Resources experience, graduate degrees in psychology, have bought and sold 10 primary homes and 2 vacation homes in 4 different states, am a former art gallery owner, and have had 4 major relocations, most recently from Boston to Carlsbad California.

I really love living near the Carlsbad beaches and truly enjoy helping buyers and sellers achieve their real estate dreams. That includes providing different ways to search for homes for sale in Carlsbad and in nearby coastal communities.

I spend a lot of time learning about the Carlsbad area, the housing market, connecting with local businesses, and more so I can be as helpful as possible to people who are moving to the area. But I just plain like knowing as much as I can about Carlsbad and enjoying all there is to do.

I am a big fan of technology and use it extensively in my business and communications. But I keep learning new stuff every day and at conferences and webinars I attend.

I enjoy writing and sharing what I know about the area and the Carlsbad real estate market here in Southern California - check out my real estate blogs, but don't hesitate to ask me anything. If I don't know the answer I will have fun finding out for you:
 

These blogs provide a wealth of information that consumers want and need about Carlsbad and nearby communities and the real estate market in general - market reports, neighborhoods (e.g., condo complexes, subdivisions, master planned communities), things to do, restaurants, homes for sale in Carlsbad and nearby, and so much more.

I love taking photos and videos so you will see a lot of these in my on-line marketing and in my real estate blogs so you will gain a good feel for the Carlsbad lifestyle and Southern California in general.

I am a big art fan, so you will often hear about art-related events in my area that I attend. My wife and I collect art and have for years, plus we owned an art gallery for 3 years in Cambridge, MA (across the Charles River from Boston) for 3 years before I got into real estate.
Bragging rights
Left the East Coast, became a Left Coaster; got my daughters married; became a new Grandpa; loving the Southern California life and having family nearby

I LOVE this product and have gotten rave reviews from the people I have given it to when attending REALTOR meetings and conventions around the country. The staff was great to work with and created my design, with logo, branding, etc. quickly. Who DOESN'T need a screen cleaner for their phone?
