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!

We all know that summer is almost here when the Dragon boat races are in town at Marine Stadium in Long Beach CA.

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.
