The Ventura County real estate market is constantly changing. Inventory levels are increasing but they are still in short supply relative to demand. Market segmentation is key to knowing which homes are going up in price and which are not. While mortgage rates remain low by historical standards, they are continuing to move higher is small increments. And, when the FED decides to end its stimulus program, rates are poised to increase significantly thus increasing the cost of home ownership.
Buying a home requires more research, more analysis, and more planning by home buyers than ever before. It is essential that home buyers in Ventura County properly select a real estate agent to represent them and their interests through the home buying process. Home buyers must have a clear picture of what they are looking for in their next home and be decisive when a home that suits their wants and needs is found. An organized methodical approach to home buying will ensure that the home buyer is a well educated client that understands the process and acts confidently when presented with opportunity.

Key considerations for serious Ventura County home buyers in today's real estate market are:
a) Register for email listing alerts so that you'll be among the first to know when a new listing that meets your requirements hits the market. The most desirable homes sell very quickly under the current market conditions. You need to be on top of new listings before the others who are searching for the same type of homes.
b) You absolutely must be pre-approved for financing. Your offer will not even be looked at unless you have been pre-approved with a reputable lender. Even pre-qualified is inadequate. If you'd like to know the difference between being pre-approved and pre-qualified call me.
c) Have a really good sense of where the true market value of a specific home listing is for today's market regardless of its listed price. I can assist you here with my 29 years of appraisal experience.
