RE/MAX At The Coast Newsletter – October 2016

RE/MAX At The Coast Newsletter – October 2016

Welcome to my Late-October Newsletter

Halloween is just around the corner, but San Diego won’t give up on summer.  We’re still enjoying 75-80 degree days under the beautiful sunny San Diego skies. Visiting San Diego in October or November is always a very good choice.
After our hiking adventure in Italy, we have stayed close to home for the past month.  We have enjoyed some local theater, seeing King Hedley II by August Wilson at Cygnet in Old Town.  I also resumed my volunteer work with Ocean Discovery Institute, helping to facilitate a session to help our Seniors start on their college admission essays. One of my students from last year, Empress El-Aton, now starting her second year at UC Santa Cruz, was back in town for a fun dinner get together. And finally, we have hosted parties for the first two political debates; thank goodness it’s just two weeks and counting until election day.
RE/MAX At The Coast just keeps changing and moving forward. After two years of subletting our upstairs space from other people, we finally have it all for ourselves.  So we are reconfiguring the space, switching offices, changing the main space, and making the whole upstairs warm and inviting. Our final big change is that we are so excited to have hired a new Office Administrator, Michelle Sanchez.  Michelle has years of administration experience in residential real estate.  She is a licensed agent and can work as a transaction coordinator.  One of our new agents has her first escrow after so much hard work, and I am working with a new VA buyer (referred by Brent and Julie Anderson, my wonderful client/friends) who is ready to buy his first property. It’s all such a good feeling to continue moving forward.
Are you a buyer who wasn’t able to buy anything this summer? Don’t lose heart; there are many reasons why the fall is the best time to buy.
  • Sellers who weren’t able to sell their homes over the summer usually consider price reductions in the fall. Sale prices fall an average of approximately 3% in September through November.
  • As a buyer, you won’t be as likely to be involved in multiple-offer situations in the fall.  You will have fewer buyers to compete with, and you will have a larger selection to yourself.
  • You can enjoy year-end tax breaks such as the mortgage interest and property tax deductions.
  • And finally, mortgage interest rates remain low.

So if you’ve backed off making the decision to buy, you may want to reconsider. This is a great time to do it!

Enjoy the World Series, Halloween trick-or-treating, and election night, all coming up in the next two weeks. And when you come to see San Diego, please see us at RE/MAX At The Coast; we love to see you and always appreciate your referrals.
