Are You Looking to Purchase Your First Home or Condo?

La jolla real estate

It is a happy day.
It is one of the most stressful things you have ever done on my own, but in the end, the process was totally worth it!! The picture that you posted of yourself holding the real estate sold sign in front of your new condo is a memory of one of your happiest days. The fact that you were blessed with gorgeous weather for the week you planned to slowly move into your new place makes your decision even better.
Looking at condos for sale for the first time can seem like a daunting task, but with the help of a knowledgeable realtor you should be able to successfully navigate the process. In some parts of the country the number of condos for sale can be limited and a tight market can make for a little more stress, but with patience and perseverance you should be able to find what you are looking for.
Often, the secret to finding the house or the condo that you want comes in working with the right group of realtors. A group that knows the area well, understands your finances, and takes the time to show you the properties that are the best fit.
Consider some of these facts and figures about some of the latest real estate trends and the impact these trends have on the U.S. economy:

  • Statistics from March of 2016 show that the average home sale price
    in the U.S. was $186,000.
  • One fact that should be a surprise is that 52% of home buyers indicated that finding the right property was the most difficult part of buying a home.
  • Leasing or renting are good options for many people, but some people who know that they are going to stay in an area for more than seven years often find the purchasing a home is a good investment.
  • Digital access has definitely affected the way that most home owners approach finding a property. In fact, real-estate related Google searches increased 253% between the year 2009 and 2013.



  • Some realtors specialize in finding condos for sale for their clients, while other realtors spend just as much of their energy on selling houses.
  • In many instances, homeowners can get a 100% return on investment (ROI) on the money they spend on the curb appeal of a home.
  • Getting into a school district can often affect the price of your home. In fact, the value of a home can be affected as much as 20% based on the quality of the school district.
  • New home owners especially rely on the advice of a real estate agent to make sure that they understand the process of purchasing a home or a condo.

Whether it is your first home or your third, the excitement of taking your picture with a SOLD SIGN never gets old. In fact. on almost any given day there is someone somewhere who is celebrating the fact that he or she is a new property owner. Will you be one of them soon?
