    As the traditionally fast-moving spring real estate market nears, Costa Mesa sellers who will be listing soon have multiple grounds for optimism—with the scarcity of available properties being the most widely publicized. Now it appears that the long-standing national shortage isn’t just continuing: it’s widening.

    According to the latest quarterly report from the National Association of Realtors®, buyers in nine out of ten markets they tracked could find 8.5% fewer homes for sale than had been available just one year before. That was in addition to the host of sunny economic conditions (a “soaring stock market, good economy, and low interest rates”) that were further motivating prospective homebuyers. If the number of local listings echoes

    Across the U.S., the numbers quieted even the most pessimistic observers. What it will mean as Costa Mesa enters the traditional peak home sales months is something we will have to wait to see. But if the likelihood for a surge in nationwide activity is any indicator, last week saw green lights flashing. A sampling of what was being hailed from virtually all quarters:

No sooner has Sunday’s Super Bowl brouhaha begun to fade from public attention than another mega-sporting event prepares its entrance. This one will draw less Supercharged ratings, but that doesn’t mean it won’t claim equally rapt attention in many Costa Mesa households. Next week will see the celebration of America’s beloved four-footed athletes: the Westminster Dog Show—since 1877, the pinnacle of American canine achievement (considerably more important than Sunday’s Puppy Bowl).

This year, the proceedings will expand to four days—the culmination of which will be next Tuesday’s Best in Show finale, televised from Madison Square Garden. You can bet that scads of Costa Mesa TVs will tune in to see which of the canine contestants (alongside their

The importance of “curb appeal” as a factor for selling Costa Mesa homes has never been questioned. It’s as important as packaging is to breakfast cereal makers—or to any manufacturer whose products compete for shelf space in a supermarket. “Curb appeal” produces a potential homebuyer’s first impression—and that has a way of influencing a lot of what follows.

Yet just exactly the degree to which curb appeal determines any Costa Mesa home’s sales success is—like most of the other factors that go into the art of selling—not something that you’d think would lend itself to scientific study.

Not so, as the slogan on the masthead of the Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics proclaims. The editors of that periodical take an opposing view:
