Marina Del Rey, CA Condominium Market Report for February 2012
Recent data suggest that the worst may be over and that the housing sector has begun to stabilize. This was on MSN.com a widely read portal on the internet.
"While we still have a long way to go back to normal, the latest numbers are one more indication that housing is slowly turning the corner," Bob Nielsen, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders, said recently. David Crowe, the association's chief economist, added, "We anticipate continued, slow improvement in housing starts and sales through 2012."

Marina Del Rey Condominium Market Report for January 2012
The Marina Del Rey Condominium Market report is a bit late this month. Nevertheless the information is important and close to two months ahead of the Main Stream media’s reporting of the information.
While the short term economic picture may be mired with uncertainty many indicators point to the financial strength of most companies, hence that will translate to consumer confidence and ultimately will reduce the high unemployment figures. That of course will help the Real Estate Activities. That in turn will help the economy.
So with that said let me recap … (15 comments)

Marina Del Rey, CA Condominium Market Report for the month of December 2011
As we closed this challenging year in Real Estate and in the overall Economy, I am truly glad we can start a New Year. So let’s review, we had the fear of a double dip recession, European crisis in Italy, Greece, Portugal to name a few. Then we had the Japanese Tsunami and the various other catastrophes around the world. All this has impacted the housing market. Let’s keep in mind that the debt crisis at home and in Europe will continue to linger on in 2012. Ironically … (14 comments)

The Global Economic volatility continues and Europe’s problems are visiting every part of the world. The roller coaster ride of will China bail out Europe or not and will Greece take the offer of saving their as well as the rest of the Global economies or will they turn it down? It was a busy month for all. Hence if you are an investor would you want to invest in Europe and specifically Greece? The answer is clear to me, if you are an investor you need to … (2 comments)

The Marina Del Rey Condominium Market Report for the month of September 2011
Every month as I am about to write my Condominium Market Reports, I am a bit nervous and wondering how the particular pocket of the  area fared, since I am unable to gage the activity based on the news media’ s observations. I am confident based on the activities of the past couple of months that we are heading in the right direction.
Interest rates are at an all time low and the Stock Market has been a Roller Coaster Ride, hence a perfect recipe to go to … (1 comments)

Marina Del Rey, CA Condominium Market Report for the month of July, 2011Finally the Debt Ceiling cloud is resolved for now and buyers and sellers of luxury Condominium in Marina Del Rey can return to what we call the ‘normal real estate market’.

Marina Del Rey Condominium Market Report for June 2011

The month of June was very active for me, many listing appointments, and a lot of viewing of my listings. Hence I am a bit late with my Market Report. As most of you who read my Market Reports consistently will notice that my focus is always on the Trends.
I have been reading a great deal about higher interest rates being on the horizon. This is based on the premise that, the Federal Reserve's second round of quantitative easing (QE2 that it is referred to) has ended with the close … (2 comments)

Marina Del Rey Condominium Market Report for May 2011

As most of you who read my post consistently, know I am a firm believer that you have to look at a Real Estate Market Report not just as a snap shot of the previous months activities, but rather as what the Trend is. If we observe and monitor the trend, than we can make educated predictions of activity for the near future of the Real Estate activity in a particular pocket.
Unfortunately there are events that are beyond our control that will impact the local Real Estate activity. Last month … (7 comments)

Marina Del Rey, Condominium Market Report for December 2010. Well here we are and 2010 is in the history books and we are well on our way into 2011. So let us look how last year fared with an expanded explanation.
There were 155 Condominiums listed for Sale this is almost identical to the numbers in December 2009 it was an increase of 2 % which is very interesting. On the other hand expired listings increased by 29%. What this tells us is that it takes a lot longer for a Condominium to sell compared to a year ago. This is … (2 comments)
