How Is the New Construction Trend Impacting Our Market?

Something is happening in our market. In the past year or so, we’ve had a number of new homes in the Serra Meadows Development come onto the market.

These homes are very nice, and have been taking up virtually half of all home sales each month.

A similar trend recently occurred with a condominium development called Avivo. It was difficult for those selling condos to stand up against these Avivo condos.

But let’s get back to today. Right now, we’ve got the largest increase of new home construction I’ve ever seen in my 26 years of business.

Toscano and Righetti Ranch both have a massive number of homes already for sale or coming soon to the market. There are many other developments as well. Avila Ranch has 720 new homes planned and San Luis Ranch has 580 new homes planned.

Between all of these developments, there are 1,920 potential new homes coming on the market in the next couple of years.

So, what does this mean? Last year we saw 600 homes close. This year we’ve had about 424. This means that those 1,920 potential new homes would amount to about three years’ worth of inventory.

So, if you’re considering a real estate transaction in the next six, 12, or even 18 months, you may want to let us help. We can answer any questions and help guide you through the process.

If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Meet the People Behind All of Our Success

It’s interesting how seemingly unrelated factors can have an influence on our real estate market.

The record heat we’ve seen so far this September here in San Luis Obispo, the storms in Houston and along the coastline, and other factors across the country have all had an impact on our market.

Despite everything going on, we’re still busy with showings and offers. Even as our temperatures reached a record-breaking 114 degrees, things have been going steady in our local market.

This really goes to show what a strong, popular area we have. Working in this area is great, but what I do wouldn’t be possible without the help of my team.

Today, I wanted to take a moment to introduce you to the people I work with every day. I’ve worked with Lindsey Harn, for example, for nine years. Lindsey is an incredible agent who helps almost every buyer we have and can handle any difficult situation that arises.

My listing manager Sharon Benedik, is another great asset to the team. She helps with marketing, sales, and overall making sure that our sellers are well taken care of. Her parents were in real estate and she’s truly a wealth of information.

Melody Avant is our escrow manager and recently celebrated her fourth year working on our team. She’s closed well over 650 escrows in her time with us.

One of our newer members, Ben, works on the tech side of things and is always extremely willing to help.

I appreciate every member on our team and know that they’re a big part of the reason that we have so many great reviews on websites like Zillow.

I also want to thank all of you, our supporters, for letting us serve you.

If you have any other questions or would like more information about anything, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
