Got an Ugly Duck Property to Sell?

Posted on October 26, 2016. Filed under: Home Seller Tips, Informed Investor Alliance, Making Life Easier, OC Property Profiles, Orange County CA Foreclosures, Orange County Real Estate |

red-tagged-house

It’s common knowledge that you’ll get the most for a property when it’s upgraded, staged, and correctly marketed. But for some Orange County home sellers, this isn’t an option. Sometimes there was a problem insurance didn’t cover, sometimes the property was inherited and needs 40 years of updates, or other times there is a divorce or a death that requires a fast move. Whatever your case may be, there are buyers out there who want to exchange your ‘problem child’ for quick cash.

This week, we interviewed one of our investors to learn a little more about the types of property she targets. She told me “Angie, we buy other people’s problems.” Here’s a deeper look into those problem homes and how an investor or all-cash buyer may be your solution to avoid headaches.

Southern California Hoarder Homes

If you’ve got a hoarder home on your hands, definitely consider your time and cost to clean it out. The process can take weeks, even months, especially if you have an emotional connection to any of the items inside. On top of that… under all the clutter is probably some deferred maintenance waiting as well. Rather than going to market with today’s buyers who all like everything clean and new, it may be best to strike a deal with an investor who will take the home as-is.

The Family Property

You’ve had Thanksgiving & plenty of holiday parties here, and over the years your parents haven’t had any garage sales, and they have kept every memory packed away in the attic and 4+ bedrooms. Now it’s time to move them to a condo or assisted living facility, but what to do with all this STUFF?

It’s not a problem for an investor. She says:

“…We purchased a property earlier this year. It was from an agent who had a client that she knew the whole family, and the mom had to go into a home. The kids did not want to deal with all of the stuff in the house, they just came and took family photos and a few things. We bought it as she left it – full of her things. We donated belongings to charity and then proceeded with the work.

As a matter of fact, the last several we have bought have been similar situations – that the agent knew the family and they just wanted a quick cash sale. It made it easy for both sides to sell before the house ever hit the MLS.”

The Money Pit

Ever tried to be an investor and failed? Ran out of money, time, or resources before the flip was done? It happens, more than you may realize. Especially with all the flipping shows out there right now! If you’re ready to throw in the towel on problems with the city, or a red tagged, unfinished construction, you’ll probably NEED to find a cash buyer or investor. Lenders won’t typically loan on partially completed construction.

The Get Me Out NOW Divorce

Sometimes, you just want out. You have other things on your mind. You don’t want to deal with a buyer whining about repairs, or people traipsing through your home when you’re trying to pack up and move out. And you definitely don’t want to sit with your future in limbo waiting for the lender who promises the world… but delays at every corner. Nasty divorces are a perfect fit for a cash sale; we’ve all got a story on that one. Sometimes it’s best to cut your losses and move forward on a new path. Like now.

crazy_cat_lady_4The Residential Zoo

Ever walked into a home with too many animals? Barf. Ever try to sell a home with pet smells? Good luck! Homes that had a lot of animals living in them, that were not taken care of, can require a lot of time and attention to air out. Plus, you’ve got the unfortunate situations that have feces inches deep on every surface including walls…damage to doors and baseboards from scratching… definitely a candidate for the investor buyer.

The scenarios are endless, but for every home there is a buyer. It just may not be the traditional kind. If you’ve got a challenge on your hands, give the AskAngie team a call at 949-338-7408 or fill out the form below to schedule a consultation on the best way for you to sell without headaches.

Balboa Peninsula, Newport Beach – Best Deals on Property Duplexes

Posted on October 3, 2014. Filed under: Balboa's Best Property Deals, First Time Buyer help, Informed Investor Alliance, OC Property Profiles, Orange County Real Estate | Tags: , , , , , |

Balboa Peninsula views

Standing at the end of the Balboa Pier, a Newport Beach coastline pic.

Gorgeous Newport Beach, CA – an ideal retirement and vacation spot for so many.  Balboa Peninsula is seeing lots of changes this year – a new marina going in, lots of new restaurants and shops, multiple properties adding 2nd and 3rd stories – the area is truly in a ‘build up’ phase similiar to what we saw with Huntington Beach 10-15 years ago.For many, the “Newport” lifestyle is far out of reach.  Currently there is only ONE lonely condo on Balboa Peninsula under 1 million dollars, and it’s HOA is almost $800/mo – OUCH!  Is there anything affordable?  Are there any opportunities?  There sure are.  Lots of times with the higher end areas, buyers will opt for a multi-unit property as a stepping stone to get up to their McMansion.  They live in one unit, and rent out the other(s) so that the mortgage becomes affordable.  Many property owners keep the multi-unit forever, because rental rates on the peninsula can be insane.  Newport Beach vacation rents range from $150-1000 per NIGHT, so you can see the potential a second unit could have on your mortgage payment!  If you don’t like the vacation rental crowd, you can still rent on a 6 month or 1 year lease for a minimum of $2000/mo, even if the unit is the size of a closet without a garage or parking.  Ya, Newport Beach CA is that expensive and exclusive.

Here are the 3 best property duplex deals on Balboa Peninsula right now:

1.  Balboa Peninsula Duplex - Balboa's Best property deals211 34th St, Newport Beach CA 92663

$1,378,000

2 BR/1 BATH Lower unit
2 BR/1 BATH upper unit
1,900 sq ft
2,666 lot size

Situated in the bustling area of the peninsula, this duplex is walking distance to shops, beach, harbor, nightlife, and a ton of restaurants.  It is only one block to the sand.

$1,295,000

2 BR/1 BATH Front unit
2 BR/1 BATH Rear unit
2,119 sq ft
2,178 lot size

Harding is a quiet, interior peninsula street (rare!) walking distance to the Balboa Ferry, Fun Zone, harbor, beach, shops, bars, Sunday Classic Car show, Catalina Flyer and Balboa Pier.  Such an ideal location.  A tear down recently sold a couple doors down for about the same price.. so this property also offers big opportunity.

 

3.  Newport Beach duplexes1627 W Balboa BL , Newport Beach 92663

$1,495,000

2 BR/2 BATH unit
3 BR/3 BATH unit

The only available peninsula duplex that offers units with more than 1 bath, this cottage style property is on the ocean side of Balboa Blvd with bigger units than the first two options.  It’s the closest listing to the new marina under development, and it’s still close to the Newport Pier, harbor, shops, restaurants and nightlife.

Orange County Real Estate Appraisals – “Ask The Appraiser”!

Posted on September 25, 2014. Filed under: First Time Buyer help, Home Improvement Ideas, Home Seller Tips, Informed Investor Alliance, Lenders & Loan info, OC Property Profiles, Orange County Home Improvement, Orange County Real Estate |

Orange County CA Real Estate appraisals

Frustrated with OC real estate appraisals? Contact the professionals at the AskAngie team to learn tips and tricks to find a more accurate appraisal estimate!

Appraisers…..we love to hate them.  They scrutinize your house, call your ‘baby’ ugly, and they tell you it isn’t worth as much as you would like.  But they are a critical part of every real estate transaction when you’re getting a loan, so we have to learn to speak appraisal language.  What does an appraiser do, anyway?  In a nutshell, appraisers determine an unbiased price your property is worth at any particular moment in time.  They do this by pulling ‘comps‘ or comparable properties near you, and then factoring in upgrades and features to nail down a property price.  The bank hires an appraiser to confirm the loan they are about to give you is on a safe, solid, properly priced property. This week we had the pleasure of hearing long time Laguna Beach appraiser Mary “Vicky” Wilson tell us how we can get closer to the right numbers.  As an agent in the business 11 years, some of this info was totally new to me!  I’m sure you’ll learn a few things too – so read on 🙂

First off, appraisers take a completely factual and non-emotional approach.  So to get on the same page with them…you’ve gotta use your head, not your heart. Every price adjustment and comparable property needs to be validated with a series of facts behind it, not just thoughts or feelings.

Basic guidelines Orange County Real Estate appraisers follow:

  • **Appraisers do NOT NOT NOT use a price per square foot average.**  Don’t even try to value your property like this.  You may be able to justify it to the buyers agent, buyer, and yourself, but the appraiser isn’t buying it, and they give the bank the green light needed to lend the money needed & close this deal.  Now, lots and land are an exception to this rule, but the main dwelling is NOT.
  • Comps must be reasonable substitutes. ie single level properties vs 2 story properties are NOT comparable.  Read that again because it takes a minute to sink in.  SERIOUSLY??  The 2 story that is 3 doors down is not a comp if you’re a single story???  Notsomuch in the eyes of the appraiser. Be careful not to price a less desirable model in a neighborhood the same as the most desirable if they differ in stories.
  • To follow along these lines, lenders don’t want an appraiser to compare properties that are 15% plus or minus in size.  If you are the smallest model, you may not be a comp with the largest, and vice versa.
  • Lenders require 4 closed sales AND 2 backup or pending sales that support the value opinion & your price tag.  Pay attention to active, pending, & backup listings because the appraiser is!  They are looking for upward or downward trends in your local market.  One high closing in your area won’t help you, remember FOUR closed properties are needed, plus 2 more that are under contract.
  • Did you know there are only 17-20 line items on an appraisal?  Appraisers stick to the cold, hard facts.
  • L O C A T I O N is the #1 consideration.  Location also trumps distance from property.  So if you are the only ‘ocean view’ in your community, an appraiser may go to a neighboring community to pull other ocean view comps instead of other non-view properties in your same neighborhood.  Same would go for a ‘corner lot’ or ‘end unit’ location.
  • Time is of the essence.  Appraisers like 3-6 month old closed comps, not more than 1 mile away.  Pull up this data before you price your property so you are in line with the realities of today’s market.
  • No, your converted detached garage, pool house, or Mother In-Law suite is not part of the square footage of your property.  Ever.  Rule of thumb: If you have to walk outside the main structure and have air or water or wind touch you then it’s not part of the square footage 😦  Furthermore, to be considered square footage, permitted improvements must be above soil grade & under the main roof.  Sorry, but your cool casitas or underground grow and wine rooms can be appraisal line item adjustments, but NOT included in the square footage.
  • .75 bath (toilet, sink, shower) is counted as a full bath in appraisals!!!!  .5 baths with no tub or shower, on the other hand, are only noted as .1….so if your property is 5 full and 3 1/2 baths… it’s a 5.3 on the appraisal; not 6.5.
  • Appraisers only have 48 hours to send their appraisals in, and they get paid less than $500 per report.  Banks have high expectations and short timelines, so this is where a good agent comes in to assist your appraiser in understanding your home’s true value, quickstyle.  More agent tips coming if you keep on reading….
  • The market will *usually* pay back 50-60% of what you spent on upgrades!!!  Sellers who try to add the entire price of remodels or upgrades into a purchase price always end up disappointed.  Remember this ratio and come to terms with it now.
  • If you do have an unpermitted addition, appraisers will ask:  Does it have intrinsic value to the property? Is the addition positive or negative to the overall home?  How is the condition?  Remember, non-permitted additions won’t count toward square footage, ever, but it can be added as a line item to the overall valuation.

Tips for Realtors and homeowners to better work with appraisers:

  1. Be present at the appraisal appointment with a comp packet. Or email it early.  The appraiser is in the field NOW, not in 3 hours when you get back to the office and your email.  Don’t expect appraisers to drive back to see your comps.  Make sure to support upward and downward trends with comps and a possible market report, too.
  2. Inform – appraisers need to know what was upgraded and how much was spent. Readily offer full access to everything.
  3. Don’t approach an appraiser negatively or with an attitude if you don’t agree with their valuation. 
  4. Don’t say: “You should have no problems with the value”.  Famous last words.
  5. During follow up: don’t ask the value, they can NOT tell you the number directly.  Instead ask: “Did you find any problems with the home that may be an issue?”

  • Pending – implies all contingencies have been removed on this listing and its only a matter of time until close.
  • Closed – entails the buyer’s loan has funded, and title has officially recorded in the new owner’s name.

There are a few other status’ you may see:

Great Deal on Laguna Niguel Condo

Posted on January 16, 2010. Filed under: OC Property Profiles, Orange County Real Estate | Tags: , , |

Laguna Niguel Condo Has It All

If you’re seeking a slice of the good life in Orange County, this Laguna Niguel Condo could be exactly what you’re looking for. This is a wonderful listing that you definitely should have a look at. It’s a single story condo with two bathrooms and two baths creating the perfect space for a single person or a small family. Located in prestigious Laguna Niguel North, a community known for its excellence and charm, this residence is in an exclusive gated community that offers both security and a relaxed, inviting atmosphere.  Individuals seeking a perfect blend of affordability and luxury will find this property irresistible, with an asking price of only $225,000. This is an incredible price, considering the first-rate location of the property.  The only drawback is that the neighborhood is not FHA approved.

A deal this good won’t stay on the market long, so I encourage interested buyers to get in the game early.

Laguna Beach homes – WOW whatta view!!!

Posted on January 11, 2009. Filed under: Informed Investor Alliance, OC Property Profiles, Orange County Real Estate |

We love selling Laguna Beach homes!  Today is absolutely GORGEOUS, and I am sitting at 637 Loretta Drive in Laguna Beach.  The view of Catalina island is completely unobstructed… I can also see South Laguna, North Laguna, and Newport Beach from the wrap around balcony.  Its so beautiful, I promise my treo pictures don’t do it justice but I will post below anyway.

Alright, alright.  I’m big on views.  I’m sure you want to know about the property…  Its immaculate 🙂  The trilevel offers 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 car attached garage and 2700 square feet.  EVERYTHING is upgraded, Hardwood floors, granite counters, a nice corner fireplace and wonderful dining/living area to entertain, patios and balconies off of EVERY room, master bathroom with a perfect view of the ocean…definately somewhere you would want to check out.

Laguna Beach is ON SALE right now, there’s 3 active listings on Loretta alone.  One is going for 4.2M, the other for 1.6M, and the one I am holding open today is asking 2.4M.  What a range, huh?  This is one of the reasons its so important to work with a Realtor, we can help you understand why the house next door is twice as much. 

I’ll be here for another hour if you want to come and check it out – or I can schedule an appointment to show you any afternoon.  I recommend to come check it out around sunset…it will be spectacular 🙂
