Marina Del Rey, CA Condominium Market Report for the month of July, 2011
Marina Del Rey, CA Condominium Market Report for the month of July, 2011Finally the Debt Ceiling cloud is resolved for now and buyers and sellers of luxury Condominium in Marina Del Rey can return to what we call the ‘normal real estate market’. When I say ‘normal’, I am referring to the new “normal” in today’s turbulent economic times.
The long term ramifications are unknown at this time. Once thing is clear there will be an economic slowdown for a number of reasons. One important reason is the Economic uncertainties in Europe, particularly Greece, Spain and Italy. You might be wondering, what effect will this have on the Marina Del Rey, CA Condominium Real Estate Market?
The answer is very clear Mortgage Rates have been falling dramatically and we are back to historic low interest rates. Hence the historic low prices coupled with the historic low interest rates create a fantastic opportunity to step into the Marina Del Rey, CA real estate market.
This in turn is creating not only for first time buyers’ great opportunities, but for investors who understand, that during uncertain times more people tend to lease and this high demand for leasing will increase Rental Rates in the long run.
I know that there has been a lot of concerns that the Fed has been downgrade, because it holds AA+ debt, please do not fall into the trap of what I call “headline-panic”, there are countries such as Ireland, France and Japan to name a few who’s dept is much worse than the US and they still have AAA rating. This is more favorable to Real Estate, because it will drive many investors out of the Stock Market into safer long term investment such as Real Estate. Hence be prepared this will increase Demand and might even fuel the Real Estate Market from a buyer’s market into a seller’s market.
Currently there are 175 Active Condominiums on the Market available for purchase. The least expensive one is One Bedroom of approximately 525 square feet of living space for the asking price of $269,900. At the other extreme, the most expensive Luxury Ocean view Condominium is a three bedroom and three and a half bath with 3,848 square feet of living space for $3,950,000.00.
There were 4 Properties in Backup-Status, where the buyers still have not removed their contingencies. There were 9 Condominiums in Hold Status; this is an indication of Short Sales, where buyers and sellers are waiting for Lender Approval. Interestingly there are 15 Properties that are Pending- Status. This is where the buyers are just waiting for funding and Escrow to close. The Sold statistic consisted of 15 Condominium that closed during the month of July.
