My buyer has a Coronado Island (San Diego) vacation condo, possibly furnished, 2 bed 1 bath 1,000 sf with 1 car garage in the heart of the Village, just reduced to $699,000. She is looking to sell or to trade for a comparable home/condo in Incline Village. Property trades can be fairly simple and easily handled between buyers and sellers, I can help you through the process.

“Completely turn-key condo just blocks to the Pacific! Remodeled in 2005, over $50,000 in upgrades. Convenient to downtown San Diego by bus, ferry or car. Rather be at the beach? Five short blocks and you’re on world famous Coronado Beach with miles and miles of white fluffy sand underfoot. Enjoy this quiet oasis in 10 unit building with an elevator and underground parking. In unit laundry, bamboo floors, custom cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless appliances, this condo has it all! Ideal vacation or starter home.”

Let me know if you are interested! This is a gorgeous unit in a very desirable, central location!

While the housing market in general continues it’s downward trend, there are locations faring much better than others. In areas like Tampa, Phoenix and Las Vegas where speculative buying was rampant, now high vacancy rates have driven down prices. In markets where home building far exceeded occupancy demands such as in Reno and Sacramento, home builders are reducing pricing to fill the surplus in supply.

What does this mean for home buyers and sellers? In Incline Village, the deficit of buyers coupled with stable list prices means longer time on the market and a decrease in sales under $1 million. We have seen buyers refusing to make offers on homes they feel are overpriced, rather than submitting a low bid. The state of the market can be used as a good bargaining point for buyers, and many sellers are very eager for offers at any reasonable price.

I have compiled a collection of news sources reporting on market conditions around the US:

Spotting Market Bottoms in 2008, Strategies for Home Sellers
Real Estate Journal- January 1, 2008

Steve McLinden of Bankrate.com agrees that home values will “stabilize again,” but it will be a rocky ride until they do — especially for home sellers, he says. For buyers, he recommends not waiting to pounce on good deals, as the housing market may be “at or near bottom,” and using the glut of homes on the market and sellers’ anxiousness to sell to bargain more effectively…

America’s Most Stable Housing Markets

Seattle has experienced strong price appreciation over the last six quarters, and that’s expected to continue in the new year, though at a slower pace. Also primed for a stable year are Pittsburgh, Columbus, Ohio, and Dallas. They follow Seattle in our ranking of the country’s 10 most stable markets. All are projected to have median home sale price increases next year, thanks to a combination of factors including lower-than-average inventory levels, little price volatility and high job growth.

Nevada is the Fastest Growing State

Wednesday, December 26th, 2007

Source: The Associated Press, John Dunbar (12/26/07)Nevada regained the title of fastest-growing state with its population increasing by 2.9 percent to 2.6 million through July 2007.

Nevada had held that title for 19 years in a row before being dethroned by

Arizona last year. Arizona is the second-fastest-growing state according to the current estimate, with a population increase of 2.8 percent to 6.3 million, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s annual estimate of state population changes.

Florida saw the sharpest fall off in population growth. Florida grew 1.07 percent, only slightly faster than the

U.S. growth rate of 0.96 percent and the slowest growth rate in the state since 1990, making it the 19th fastest-growing state.
The only two states in the country to lose population were Michigan and

Rhode Island.

Michigan lost 30,500 residents, a 0.3 percent decline.

The 10 fastest-growing states in order are:

  1. Nevada
  2. Arizona
  3. Utah
  4. Idaho
  5. Georgia
  6. North Carolina
  7. Texas
  8. Colorado
  9. Wyoming
  10. South Carolina
