We are so often asked the same question, "when is a good time to buy?". Without a crystal ball, it's hard to give a definitive answer for that question, but what we like to say is that the best time to buy is simply when you are able to buy. With home values still on the rise, there is a lot of talk that there will be an increase in mortgage rates with the year - so if you were thinking of buying in the next year or so, you should try to do so sooner than later to avoid facing higher monthly payments!
* Pro Tip: Speak with a lender to help determine what monthly payments you are comfortable making.. Don't have a Lender? We have some great recommendations!
Sellers are seeing their homes sell with multiple offers in a very short amount of time, and for Top Dollar! We are in a HOT Sellers' Market - Sellers carry most of the control here. With more pressure on buyers to make the purchase, buyers might be willing to make more concessions to help you accept their offer and seal the deal. You may be able to ask to rent-back the home for a short period to give you more time for moving and/or make your home sale contingent upon you first finding a new place to live.
* Of course, the best approach to help optimize your home sales return is to simply have the right agent in your corner. Be sure to find an agent that is dedicated to you & deliver your best results!

Who Said the Market Slows Down During the Holidays???With the holidays
"We recently purchased our first home in Oceanside. Mr. Arendsen made the process a wonderful experience. If we had any questions or concerns, he responded right away with answers or updates. He had a wide range of homes to view and made sure we viewed all options of what was available, where we wanted to live. We knew what we wanted and he delivered it. I'm from Oceanside and was very impressed with his knowledge of the schools, neighborhoods and local places. Our purchase was negotiated with everything we wanted and in a timely manner. His knowledge and expertise are the best and we highly recommend him."
