January has often been a month when Costa Mesa homeowners decide to get serious about projects they’ve put on hold during the past year. It’s only logical: most of us tend to regard the annual calendar changeover as a kind of mental departure point. “Out with the old! In with the new!” is more than just a greeting card motto: January has long been a month for committing to major initiatives.

Deciding to sell your Costa Mesa home can be such a project—and when you combine that January milestone idea with the popular acceptance of spring as the key home-selling season, you might think that right now—in mid-January—is the ideal time to begin preparations. In the past, that was often the case. But if the National Association of Realtors®’ latest

In most reports about the gang-busters records set during the just-finished holiday shopping season, a lot of attention was given to the shifting nature of buying and selling. Bricks-and-mortar businesses did alright—but most of the gains in commercial activity were set online. No surprise, there—at least not to the shops and big-box stores who’d seen it coming and built websites accordingly.

Those of us who labor in Costa Mesa real estate have long since adapted to the technology that empowers consumers so successfully. It had once been argued that, by opening free public access to multiple listing data and asking nothing in return, Realtors® were giving away the keys to the kingdom (and to our own livelihoods!). When everyone can easily canvass

No doubt about it: this year’s holiday atmosphere has now so thoroughly blanketed Costa Mesa that any of our Scrooge-tempered neighbors will have had to retreat homeward to avoid being overwhelmed by the good cheer. From the Christmas trees brightening shop corners everywhere to the sound of carols and the growing number of newer holiday pop classics monopolizing Costa Mesa loudspeakers indoors and out, the holidays have indisputably seized center stage.

For a while there, given the early onset of holiday ad blitzes, it might have seemed possible for any adult so inclined to ride out the season behind a gruff, ‘these holidays are just a merchandising gimmick’ attitude. But the undertones of goodwill and generosity, supercharged by relentless

Santa Surprised

There is a shift underway—an unexpected one—that may affect the supply of Costa Mesa homes for sale. Experts project housing needs based upon measurable data. But sometimes, unexpected trends materialize…

The frequently cited nationwide housing shortage is largely ascribed to a falloff in builders willing to enter the market—a phenomenon that’s backed up by housing starts statistics which continue to register feeble readings. But now there is another phenomenon—one that has more to do with a cultural shift linked to the growing population of senior citizens.

That demographic bulge has been long expected—it triggered a considerable wave of nursing home construction. Yet those nursing home facilities are beginning to experience something totally
