Selling a Home in Lake Hills Reserve
Kristal Wilson, Making your real estate transaction kristal clear! (Keller Williams Costal Properties)

Selling a home in Lake Hills Reserve is a strategic/creative process. Timing, marketing, presentation and negotiation are a few on the components considered when placing your home on the market. lake hills reserve sign

Now is a great time for selling a home in Lake Hills Reserve. Inventory levels are low - California has four months of inventory according to California Association of Realtors. (More than 6 months is considered a buyer's market while less than 6 months is a seller's market.) Interest rates remain low and buyers have decided to get off the fence and purchase now. Bidding wars, multiple offers and above list price offers are becoming common for well-priced homes throughout the Inland Empire. 

Marketing, while selling a home in Lake Hills Reserve, is very important. I like to work with the seller's to create a house story. Why did you purchase this home, how have you lived in the home? These types of questions allows the agent to target the marketing to a specific buyer. A buyer seeking the lifestyle your home represents.

blue sky, trees, parkThe presentation of your Lake Hills Reserve home is critical and consists of more than curb appeal, although this is very important. Seller's in the Lake Hills Reserve are competing with other standard equity home owner's, distressed sales and new construction within the community. I like to recommend seller's visit the Model homes at Richmond America Homes Cielo community. Notice the curb appeal as you walk up to the home. Colorful planting, clean porches extend a welcoming invitation. 

Seller's need to take a critical look at their homes. (A Realtor will provide the guidance and make suggestions for improvements.) Windows should sparkle, the home must be decluttered and de-personalized. You will be moving soon so now is a good time to begin packing up seasonal clothing, books, bedding, etc.

rolling hillsHomes are selling in the Lake Hills Reserve during the month of May ten homes closed - 9 Standard sales and 1 Short Sale. If you would like to take advantage of a great opportunity to sell a home in the Lake Hills Reserve call me to discuss a synergistic partnership with a Realtor experienced in your area.

Lake Hills Reserve is a beautiful hill top community of new and newer homes. The 750 acre masterplanned reserve is set among the rolling hills of west Riverside bordering on the city of Corona. Boasting a new elementary school, community pool and several parks the community combines a rural type living (expansive lots, natural scenery) with easy access to Orange County and the Inland Empire.

Pending Sales: 8 (2 Standard Sales, 4 Short Sales, 2 REO's- bank owned)

Closed Sales: 3 (1 Short Sale, 2 REO's)

What does this mean for you?

The average price per square foot for homes in the Lake Hills Reserve - $108. This number is important as it provides a base for calculating the value of your home. However views, size of lots, amount of upgrades will also impact the value of your home.

FHA Loans continue to be the most widely used loan with seller concessions (the amount of money the seller credits to the buyer for closing costs) ranging between $7,000 - $10,000.

blue sky, trees, parkThe highest priced home to sell in the Lake Hills Reserve for the month of December was $486,000 with $10,000 seller credits. However the home was on the market 148 days and had 3 different buyers. For various reasons buyers may be unable to qualify for a loan, pre-approval letters and cross-qualification are critical to keep a transaction moving forward, or may change their minds - agents need to have a through knowledge of contractual obligations.

Homeowners interested in selling their Lake Hills Reserve home will require an experienced agent who has studied the real estate trends. My monthly Lake Hills Reserve Riverside Real Estate Report contains up-to-date information for buyers and sellers.

Kristal Wilson, Making your real estate transaction kristal clear! (Keller Williams Costal Properties)

Lake Hills Riverside Real Estate Update - November 2011Lake Hill sign, trees, blue sky

The Lake Hills Reserve is a 750 acre masterplanned community nestled in the mountains of  eastern Riverside bordering the city of Corona. Conveniently located near the 91 & 15 freeways providing easy access to Orange County and Los Angeles.  Panoramic city views, rolling hills and 500 acres of dedicated open space are features of this beautiful community. The community consist of homes built during two different time periods. Older homes built from 1985 and phase 2 - newer construction built during 2004 forward.

Active Listings: 9 (6 Short Sales, 2 Standard Sales, 1 REO bank owned)

Pending Sales: 4

Closed Sales: 3 (2 REO's, 1 Standard)

 

What does this mean for you?

The numbers reflect continued real estate activity within the Lake Hills Reserve. The number of short sale transactions has increased which also reflects the average number of days a home is on the market. The current reality of real estate often reflects longer days on the market. Which maybe an advantage for standard sellers. The average days on the market (DOM) for the standard sale was 36 days versus the average 169 days for short sales.

Also important is the List Price (LP) to Sold Price (SP) percentage. During the month of November the closed sales averaged  -.50% of list price.

Understanding the current fair market value and pricing the home accordingly results in fast sales for well priced, well maintained homes in the desirable Lake Hills Reserve, Riverside, CA.

Lake Hills Reserve Real Estate October 2011

The Lake Hills Reserve is a 750 acre masterplanned community nestled in the mountains of Riverside. Conveniently located near the 91 & 15 freeways providing easy access to Orange County and Los Angeles.  Panoramic city views, rolling hills and 500 acres of dedicated open space are features of this beautiful community. The community consist of homes built during two different time periods. Older homes built from 1985 and newer construction built during 2004 forward. This report is based on MLS data for newer & new construction homes.Lake Hill sign, trees, blue sky

 

Active Listings: 11 (6 Short Sales - 2 REO's - 3 Standard Sales)

Pendings: 7

Closed Sales: 2

New Construction: 4

Average price per square foot: $112   Average Price: $414,000  Average Days on Market: 145

 

While touring the Lake Hills Reserve for new listings the foggy morning slowly dispersed as the rays of the sun burned through the pea soup haze. A new listing was generating a buzz. A standard sale on a large corner lot this home offers a Tuscan exterior with a stone facade and turret. Extensive upgrades are evident throughout the home - granite counters, stainless steel appliances, etc. This home should generate multiple offers quickly.

Richmond American Homes has a new single story back on the market (Single-story homes are often requested but due to building cost are rare.) The 180 degree view is spectacular, while the lot backs up to open green space of the undulating hills. The warranties offered by builders are definitely a value-add feature to be considered.

blue sky, trees, parkWhat does this mean for you?

Sellers: the peak buying/selling season has passed however as proven by the two new listings sellers continue to list homes during fall into the holiday season. But it is important to show your home in the best possible light to generate the best offers. Curb appeal, fresh paint, clean carpets, decluttered and depersonalized are minimium standards to be met by eager sellers.

Buyers: have the opportunity to purchase two single story homes;  a resale home offering wonderful upgrades (fireplace in the master bedroom) and a brand new construction home with unbelievable views.

If you would like additional information about these homes or others in the Lake Hills Reserve give me a call.  I assist buyers and sellers in the Riverside area.
