Real Estate Misconceptions May Keep You From Buying a Great Home in Redondo Beach

There are a lot of assumptions about the housing market, but some of those beliefs may be causing you to miss out on a great house.  Here are a few of the biggest misconceptions that home buyers have.

Do School Systems Make a Big Difference with Real Estate Values – Absolutely

It’s no real secret that good schools help drive real estate values in certain neighborhoods and communities.  Buyers with kids want to be in areas with good schools and that higher demand helps keep values up.  Even those without kids greatly benefit from a strong school system.  The stronger the schools the more insulated a market is from any downturns.  That was very evident in Redondo Beach that saw home prices drop during the recession and housing crisis, but only a very small amount compared with other local areas that do not have as strong a school system.

A recent CAR study showed that 47% of home buyers said good schools were very importan, 23% said that they were somewhat important, 11% said not very important and 19% said that it was not important at all.

The 19% may not realize just how much of an influence schools play on values and demand.  Good elementary schools are often part of a good community and without question most buyers would like to live in a good community.

The Redondo Beach Unified School District is highly ranked and that creates a very high demand, especially for families thinking of living in this coastal community.

The study also conclued that 43% of consumers age 34 or under believe highly rated schools are very important.  58% of consumers earning more than $100,000 a year think that highly rated schools are very important.

$1,245,000 for an 1,880 sq foot Tall & Skinny in the Golden Hills? WOW

It looks like the market in the Golden Hills of Redondo Beach may not have peaked just yet if the home at 1809 Goodman is any indication.  Listed at $1,249,000 and closing at $1,245,000.  This appears to be a new record high sales price for anything of that size built prior to 2005.

View the current homes for sale in the Golden Hills of Redondo Beach

The home was beautifully remodeled with a warm coastal feel and just about every aspect had been converted from it’s original 1983 built finishes.  Although relatively close to busier Artesia Boulevard, the home was across from a very rare open area and enjoyed tree top views most wouldn’t think possible in the neighborhood.

The only recent sale similar in age and price was located at 1411 Clark and sold at $1,235,000 back in August.  The average home price for similar homes with 1750-1950 sq feet and built before 2000 was $1,150,000 for 2018.

5 Essential Steps that Some Home Buyers Don’t Realize are Needed for a Mortgage

There are a number of things a buyer needs to do to get a mortgage and the earlier these are done in the process the less stressful the process.  Knowing about your financing abilities eliminates many hurdles that may come up in the home buyer process in Redondo and the loan process for any Southern California home.  Here are 5 essential steps:

  1. Get pre-approved:  In a highly competitive housing market, it’s imperative to be pre-approved to give yourself the best chance of an offer being considered.  Most realtors and sellers won’t even consider an offer with financing if a preapproval letter isn’t included.
  2. Choose a realtor that can help mitigate appraisal problems.  A good realtor will meet the appraiser with the most current information in hand.  As a local real estate expert often knows more than the appraiser, the realtor may have insight and information not readily available to the appraiser.
  3. Know your credit score:    It’s not only important to have good credit and know your credit score, but equally important that your credit score stays the same throughout the escrow process.  No big purchases, no opening numerous new credit lines and no late or missed payments.
  4. Make it through underwriting:  Before you get loan clearance and final approval, your mortgage has to go through the underwriting process.  Be ready and supply the underwriters with all requested documents quickly to avoid the stress of needing to ask the seller for extra time.  Most loan contingency periods are 21 days or shorter so time is of the essence in the loan process.
  5. Review the closing disclosure forms or CD.  Due to regulations, lenders must provide you with a closing disclosure at least 3 days before closing in order to see fees, details, etc.
