Aliso Viejo Foreclosure-Who is giving this advice?

by keithwatts March 9, 2012 Latest News

When Aliso Viejo Real Estate Real Estate turned south a few years back the term “Short Sale” was a new concept to people who were not real estate professionals. Now, five years later it’s rare to come across a buyer or seller who is not familiar with the term. I think it’s safe …

Is this house falling down the hill?

by keithwatts September 29, 2011 Buyers

Great question, especially if you’re interested in buying the house and it’s probably not the right question.  They should be asking, “Is it going to slide down the hill after I buy it?” On many Aliso Viejo Listings, Laguna Niguel Listings, and Laguna Beach Listings the main attraction is the view so I don’t ever …

But I thought Summer time was a busy time?

by keithwatts June 30, 2011 Latest News

It is. Well, at least we sell a lot of homes in August. The rest of the summer is busy in other ways. I think that most people decide to buy a home during the summer, start their search in June and then finish by August. Summer is a very busy …

When there is nothing for the Housekeeper to clean, have them run in place.

by keithwatts June 22, 2011 Latest News

Why not?  You’re paying the maid regardless of whether or not the house needs cleaning.    This is my theory about open houses.  I’ve never sold a home at an open house.  I’ve spoken to countless Realtors who built their entire business on sitting open houses and only a handful have actually sold the home they …

Don’t you have an imagination?

I currently have, and have had a few Bank Owned Homes in Aliso Viejo.  All of my listings in Aliso Viejo seem to generate a lot of interest from buyers online however my Bank Owned Listings in Aliso Viejo always seem to disappoint the buyers due to their condition.  Most buyers in today’s marketplace are …

Can I qualify for a mortage on a home in Aliso Viejo?

by keithwatts June 17, 2011 Buyers

Most shopping in Aliso Viejo can qualify for more than they shoul borrow. 

 I’m amazed at how aggressive people are when it comes to buying a home, especially in the midst of our foreclosure storm.  On every Aliso Viejo Real Estate Listing I service I always require potential buyers to submit a pre-approval letter from their lender along …

Does this house have Termites?

by keithwatts June 15, 2011 Banked Owned Homes

Of course, if the house is made of wood.  The real question should be, “How bad is the termite problem”?   If you’re buying a house the next question will be, “Who is paying to get rid of them”? 

The first question can be answered by obtaining a professional termite report.   An inspector walks around the property …

Do you sell homes in Irvine?  Of course I can, but I really shouldn’t.  Let me rephrase that, I’m not an expert in Irvine and you would be better off with an agent who is an expert in Irvine Listings.  For the record I recommend Paul Conti at Prudential.  I know the argument against what …

Bees in Aliso Viejo

by keithwatts June 15, 2011 Banked Owned Homes

In the seventies there was a terrible horror movie called “The Swarm” with Michael Cain.  If you haven’t seen it you’ve got to look it up.  Henry Fonda had a bit role and the entire premise was a swarm of Bees terrorizing the land.  I saw it when I was five and maybe its fate …
