I took this picture from the Second Street bridge going into Naples.  What a wonderful night for a walk, nice and warm.

Have a nice day!

They are making another episode of Dexter on Mothers Beach this morning in Long Beach.  I have watched this show a few times and I think it is scary.  I had a friend tell me that her daughter really likes it and tries to follow where they a filming.  I hope she see this.  Let me know what you think of Dexter?

Have a nice day!

The strandI have many of my clients asking me if it is a good time to buy or sell real estate today in Seal Beach. I always tell them if you don’t have to sell don’t, but if you do have to sell it is a great time. There are not to many properties on the market in Seal Beach right now or any where else for that matter. There are a lot of buyers out there trying to purchase to get the lower interest rates. As a mater of fact I have not seen interest rates this low ever since I started in Real Estate in 1979..

I would say sell,  especially if you have a unusual property, or you just really need to sell;   it is the best time to sell and there are multiple offers on almost everything.

If you need a “Free Market Evaluation” please give me a call.  I have sold a few homes this year with out even using the multiple listing service.  So if you want to sell confidentially let me help you.

Don’t forget this Friday December 3, 2010 is our Seal Beach Christmas Parade. Come by my office at 311 Main #16 in Seal Beach for some Holiday Cheer. The parade is always so much fun for everyone… Yes, we have a really nice Christmas tree this year!

DQNEWS ( www.dqnews.com ) released its February sales results.  By sales, we mean the number of transactions.  February sales were down about 1% from January but up over 40% from February one year ago.  Southland sales were up over the previous year for the eighth consecutive month – primarily due to foreclosure transactions.

In Seal Beach (zip code 90740), the median sales price was $708K, down almost 12% from February one year ago.   The average price per square foot was $514 – up from the previous month’s $375.  Seal Beach’s average was the fourth highest in Orange (1 zip code in Laguna Beach and 2 zip codes in Newport Beach were higher).

The adjoining area of Belmont Shore (zip code 90803) had a median sales price of $550K, down over 45% from one year ago.  The average per square foot was $464 – this compares to last month’s $438.

I have a list of some months in 2008 for comparison purposes.  You can view it on my website at www.pathaleonline.com.
