Get More Oceanside Housing Information

Okay, so you are beginning to see that knowing the neighborhoods, the homes, their listing prices, their sold prices, and information about prices per square foot are important to you as you make decisions about buying or selling your Oceanside home.  This probably isn’t big news to you, but in my many years of experience it is often the number one reason homeowners fail to get their asking price, and the really big number one reason buyers are perplexed about valuation.

Make sure you’re using all the features of my site to help you out with this.

What Is Your Oceanside Home Worth?

First stop on the train of success is to find out how much your home is really worth.  Believe me, your brother-in-law who sells one home a year to a relative isn’t going to be much help here.  Neither is a listing agent who is dying on the vine and would promise you any price if you’ll just list with him/her.

Instead, do you own research.  Take advantage of good statistics about YOUR home, and YOUR neighborhood, and YOUR valuations.  I’ll get you the information you must have to value your home.  Just do it!

If you’re searching for homes, then in addition to registering and getting daily updates on homes in your price range, please also take the big picture approach and learn what the Oceanside Housing Market is doing across many of the areas there.

Our Oceanside Market Statistics Page is exactly what you’ll need for this.  Spend some time over a period of weeks so that you can see for yourself the trends and economics behind the home you want to purchase.

 Today’s Oceanside Housing Market Report Takeaway

The biggest takeaway for me was the DOM or Days on Market.  We did go through a period when homes were being purchased after just a few days on the market.  Snap…they were gone.  But reason set in, as did slightly higher mortgage rates and the fiasco in Washington, and now homes have begun to settle into what is a more typical time on the market.  Yes, 57 days is very typical of a strong market, with plenty of time for buyers to gauge each property against others.  Take advantage of this selling timeframe now to get what you want without rushing.
