Frequently Asked Questions (SELLERS)
Most homes listed in our local area in April, May and June have the best results. Many people with school age children prefer to be settled in to a new home over the summer so they are ready for the school year. This is when the market heats up.
In today’s housing market the internet has allowed consumers to educate themselves. The best approach is to market it at a price reflective of recent sales, taking into consideration your property’s location and other factors unique to your property, to attract serious buyers. I will make sure that I highlight location, upgrades or anything that makes your property stand apart.
I will make sure in advance that does not happen. I know very simple techniques to make your home viewable as a future home for discerning buyers.
Do not worry, most buyers and sellers are not going to allow that to be a deal breaker. Many times, sellers can negotiate an actual move out/in date.
Frequently Asked Questions (BUYERS)
Your lender will be able to tell you exactly what you can qualify before you ever begin to look. It is almost a given nowadays to have a pre-approved loan in place when making an offer. This is most attractive to sellers, especially in this day and age when sellers get multiple offers shortly after listing.
Typically, closing takes 30-45 days.
With the internet, you will most likely see hundreds of homes online before you ever make an offer. But the average actual properties buyers physically visit before making an offer is around 9 or 10. I like to preview properties for my clients so I can report back to them any possible red flags, thus saving them time.
Generally, 5% lower will not cause a stir. But if you are looking in an area where a certain price point is garnering multiple offers, you may reconsider that if you have found your ideal home.
That’s what I’m here for, while there are not a lot of “great” deals in this marketplace, you should always get a fair deal.

Sharon is a delightful realtor. Being a strong member of the Rossmoor – Seal Beach – Los Alamitos community, she is very familiar with many aspects of the community, businesses, resources and people. She is very professional and always has her client’s best interest in mind. I could go to Sharon when I had a question regarding the sale of our home and she did very well in assisting us through the process. We intend to use her should we look for investment property in the Long Beach and North Orange County areas.
