NSDCC Open Houses This Weekend

I went through the NSDCC open-house list and these are my favorites based on price, location, DOM, and agent. They start in La Jolla (four on the oceanfront!) and go north up the coast as you scroll down.

Let me know if you’d like me to create a personal collection for your search!

Working the PQ

I had 100+ people attend the open house today, which is a great response.

One of the attendees asked how I did it, and I said that I’ve been here before. When the market gets soft, you have to have both a good-looking property AND an attractive price.

Most of the houses you see for sale has one or the other. This property has both.

When buyers see an attractive listing online, they come running. I literally inputted this listing onto the MLS about 8:30 this morning. At noon we had three couples waiting.

There’s nothing wrong with the market – it’s fine! What’s wrong is your price or condition.

Open House Report

A guy yesterday said he was going to wait-and-see how the drone bombings in Saudi Arabia are going to affect the market.  But isn’t there always going to be something?

Won’t there always be a headline that makes you wonder?

Regardless of what actually does happen, the government is much more involved with interfering with the natural market forces, so the likelihood of dramatic swings is remote.

Either your life is on hold, or it’s not.

Lock Up

Yesterday, I whipped into the City of Carlsbad maintenance yard where they have all the realtor open-house signs locked up.  They have been diligent in their enforcement efforts!

When the city first threatened to do something, we realtors didn’t take it seriously and failed to get out in front of it.

As a result, the city imposed a rule that requires our open house signs to be inside of the right-of-way, which is tough around Olde Carlsbad where there are no sidewalks and in many cases, no place to put signs that are ten feet from the street.

Not only are they collecting the signs every weekend now, but their driver has an attitude too, especially when he is on patrol with his girlfriend – which has to be against city policy for her to be riding along.

I asked about political signs.

They explained that those have a ‘special’ permit so they can be put anywhere. Politicians give themselves special treatment!
