423961_10150658223019559_91725514_nPatagonia Cardiff-by-the-Sea is having a screening of never-before-seen footage from surfing icon George Greenough.

Filmmaker and innovative board designer George Greenough was a pioneer in the art of surf cinematography—the first to capture a surfer’s point of view from inside the tube. He recently discovered, edited and narrated 20 minutes of lost 16-mm wave-riding footage from the late 1960s. Come see the footage and share some food and drinks.

Surfer Devon Howard will host the evening, which will begin with a slide show followed by the screening. An event poster designed by Leo Basica will be sold—all proceeds will benefit a local environmental nonprofit. Grab dinner from the Green Truck food truck and enjoy brews from The Lost Abbey.

This is a free event.

posted on June 17th, 2013 | filed under: Buying Strategies, Cardiff, Carlsbad, Del Mar, Encinitas, For Sale, Leucadia, Loving the Lifestyle, NoCo SD Market Conditions, Rancho Santa Fe, Solana Beach

In certain houCal Housesing markets, it seems homes are selling like hot cakes. Buyers in California are feeling the heat more than anyone, with four of the top five fastest-moving housing markets in The Golden State.

Orange County, San Diego, Sacramento and Los Angeles topped the list, with Las Vegas coming in at no. 5, according to data from ZipRealty.

In Orange County, the median days homes spent on the market dropped from 52 to 15, a 71% decrease year-over-year in March. Additionally, 29% of homes in Orange County sold in seven days or less. Conversely, the median home price shot up 27% year-over-year o $495,000.

San Diego saw a similar change year-over-year, with the median days on market dropping 59% from 49 days to 20 in March. One-quarter of San Diego houses sold in seven days or less, and the median home price jumped 22% to $390,000.

Market Update: Home Price Surge to Moderate

posted on June 14th, 2013 | filed under: Buying Strategies, Cardiff, Carlsbad, Del Mar, Encinitas, Loving the Lifestyle, NoCo SD Market Conditions, Rancho Santa Fe, Solana Beach, Successful Selling

Last month we saw that the decline in the number of distressed home sales, bank-owned and short sales, has been the main driver in the recent surge of prices.

What we didn’t explain was why there were so few distressed property sales.

When the market was reaching its nadir in 2009, institutional investors poured in with big money and purchased bulk foreclosed properties from the bank, which they then turned around and rented.

That’s why the “shadow inventory” every pundit was trumpeting a few years ago never appeared.

Well, guess what? Those same investors are now fleeing the market.

According to Businessweek’s interview with Bruce Rose, hedge fund manager and one of the first to put money into buying bank-owned property, “we just don’t see the returns there that are adequate to incentivize us to continue to invest.”

What does that mean for the rest of us? First, we’ll be seeing more bank-owned properties come to market. Second, price increases should moderate.
