San Diego home sales improve for new and resale properties alike


By Patricia Kramer & Patricia Lou Martin

New home sales throughout California are finally on the rise, according to a recent report from the

Los Angeles Times

, with numbers improving over last year’s figures across the state. Here in

San Diego, home sales

are seeing an increase as well, with both new and resale properties experiencing a boost in consumer interest. For prospective buyers, the time is ripe for great real estate deal. However, when it comes to shopping for new homes, it can be tough to know whether or not a purchase is in your best interest without help from an experienced and unbiased real estate agent.

San Diego County boasts so many stunning properties for homebuyers to choose from, ranging from stately landmarks to brand new developments. In today’s market, reduced prices have inspired some buyers to pursue previously owned homes in well-established areas, while others find themselves looking to get in on the ground floor in a new or up-and-coming neighborhood. Homes in the latter category have the advantage of current, trend-driven characteristics, such as energy-saving features and sparkling new amenities. However, they are also more likely to have agents on-site with the express intention of winning over buyers and securing sales – meaning that buyers who walk in without an agent of their own may wind up working with someone who represents the interests of the developer, as opposed to those of the client.

Choosing the best representation: why it pays to pick the right real estate agent

Wandering through a beautiful new housing development, buyers may be tempted to take advantage of convenient on-site real estate services for more information on the properties for sale. But when you hire an experienced – and unbiased – San Diego real estate agent whose allegiances lie with you alone (as opposed to the seller or developer of a group of properties), you get a value that far exceeds the convenience of proximity.
