It may sound paradoxical, but one proven way to sell your Costa Mesa home is to make it boring…or at least, a little bit more boring. The principle here stems from buyer psychology—specifically, the difference between a house that would make a great tourist attraction and one whose first impression is more apt to lead to a sale. At first blush, the flashy version might seem to be not only memorable, ¬¬¬but more valuable as well. But that’s not typically true. A potential buyer can remember your house in two different ways. One memory might be of striking red walls and purple tile that call to mind images from an architectural magazine. That sort of memory will be vivid, but it doesn’t necessarily help to sell your home. A different type of memory

When is the best time for selling your Costa Mesa house? Is there even a best time? If the change in residence is triggered by some inflexible external factor (like a transfer at work), the answer is foreordained: NOW! That can be right now, or in November, or February—since you will be making the move, to avoid paying for two homes, there really isn’t a choice. The sooner it’s listed, the better. But if the timing of a move is completely at your discretion, the “when” can be troubling. More than one Costa Mesa homeowner has worried so long and hard about the issue that years pass. When the For Sale sign does eventually go up, it’s probably because the cost of inaction has become apparent. The true answer to the question about the optimal time for

The text that accompanies your listing as it appears in the Costa Mesa MLS listings is called upon to do more heavy lifting than you might think. If it reads something like: THREE BEDROOM ranch style Costa Mesa charmer with 2 ½ baths, attractive kitchen, and fully landscaped backyard… —then it will only be serving half-duty. A blurb like this does succeed in emphasizing basic nuts-and-bolts details, but every Costa Mesa listing already includes the number of bedrooms, bathrooms and the rest. What’s missing is the story part of the story—the human element that strikes a chord with a reader’s own personal experience. It’s the pathway to emotions that astute marketers strive to reach. Successfully employed, it adds power to any Costa Mesa listing. One

With home prices and interest rates on the rise, you’re likely to assume that the cost of that next Costa Mesa home you’re thinking about buying has made it a financial stretch—especially compared with “the good old days.” But news stories tend to omit the effect of rising incomes and actual inflation on the real cost of a home in today’s market—which turns out to be something of a bargain! A recent calculation may not hold true for everyone, of course—nor does it apply to the cost of every Costa Mesa home—but the details make sense when you think about them. The comparisons are from a study by Zillow Research on housing affordability across the U.S. Researchers were looking into how much havoc the rise in U.S. mortgage interest rates has wreaked on

The experts seem to have gotten it slightly wrong. Costa Mesa real estate observers always expect a surge in activity when the spring buying season gets underway—an annual phenomenon that’s frequently accompanied by an uptick in prices paid. Because of optimism about the national economy and the ongoing nationwide shortage of homes for sale, a continuation of last year’s gradual rise in residential prices had been what the experts expected. Last week, if CNBC’s Realty Check has it right, those predicted “gradual” price rises took an abrupt lurch upward. “Home prices just took the biggest jump in four years” was the headline, backed up by the new numbers: a surge in March’s U.S. median home prices of 8.9% compared with last year. Costa Mesa homeowners
