REMINDER….. all cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sales calls.


To prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone: 888-382-1222.
It is the National DO NOT CALL list It will only take a minute of your time.. It blocks your number for five (5) years. You must call from the cell phone number you want to have blocked. You cannot call from a different phone number.

HELP OTHERS BY PASSING THIS ON .. It takes about 20 seconds.

Please forward to family and friends.

If you need to know what is the current housing trend for the month of May, follow the link below. I also included a quick link to preview properties for sale in Seal Beach. Let me know if you like it?

I have been in real estate over 30 years and haven’t seen anything like this market.  If you are a first time buyer and buying a home in the $300,000 to $350,000 range, be ready for five to ten offers on just about everything in the Long Beach, Lakewood and Garden Grove areas.  I am so surprised that everything is moving quick in that price range.  I see higher prices sitting on the market for  longer, even though there have been  a few properties in Seal Beach that went for over 1 mil with several offers on them also.  I guess if you see a home you really like you better buy it before someone else does.  You will probably live in your home for such a long time this kind of market will not matter in the long run.  This happens every ten years or so.  I paid $10,000 for my first house in 1970.  I though it was a lot of money at that time.

According to, September sales in the Southland were up almost 6% from August and up more than 65% from one year ago.  Here are some statistics for our local area.

In Seal Beach the median sales price was $762K, up 4.2% from one year ago. The average per square foot was $567.

For comparison purposes, in the Belmont Shore (we used zip code 90803) the median sales price was $1,200K, up 15.9% from one year ago. The average per square foot was $459.

The prices are up in our area over a year ago and the average per square foot is better in Seal Beach and down a little in Belmont Shore.
