San Diego Existing Home Sales
San Diego County detached home sales for January 2017 where the highest since 2013! When compared to January 2016, the San Diego County detached home sales were up just slightly by 49 homes.
The real big news for existing home sales in January was that on a nationwide basis, they hit a 10 year high!
The National Association of Realtors (N.A.R.) reported this week that existing home sales jumped 3.3 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.69 million units last month. That was the highest level since February 2007!
Not only in San Diego, but for most of the major regional metropolitan areas, there’s been a persistent shortage of available homes for sale. It is this lack of housing inventory that many in the real estate industry believe is the major cause of the escalating home prices even in the face of increasing mortgage rates. Read more
San Diego Real Estate Site for Sale
18 year old San Diego California real estate is for sale. This site www.brokerforyou.com is now for sale!
Most search engine optimization optimization specialist agree that older sites rank in the search engine results much better than newer sites. Also sites that concentrate on one topic and have a large amount of unique content rank better in the search results when compared to smaller sites.
Just take a look below at ourmonthly unique visitors to this San Diego real estate website! we no longer have an MLS search function on the site nor do we have a lead capture page. With these two upgrades made, with the huge directed San Diego real estate traffic that this site generates it would be hard to believe that at least a few completed transactions could not be directly attributed to the website.
Here in San Diego the average residential home price is over $500,000! Just as an example, let’s say just one new sale per year could be attributed to this website. Also, let’s say that the generated real estate business was a listing and the sale was generated by a cooperating broker. That would mean, that the owner of the real estate site, naturally assuming that they are a California licensed real estate broker, would receive half of the commission. Again to be ultra realistic let’s say that the commission on this one generated real estate transaction was just 5% and that was split 50-50 between the listing office and the sales office. Well, at a $500,000 sale price, this example would result in a $12,500 commission!
It’s not only the unique traffic that’s important to this site it’s that this site is totally focused on generating traffic specific to the San Diego real estate market. Personally I’d say with this type of unique traffic, www.brokerforyou.com has to be one of the busiest San Diego real estate sites!

www.brokerforyou.com – Website Traffic
For last month, www.brokerforyou.com, received over 27,000 unique visitors!
For those of you who may not know the difference between unique visitors and hits, there is a tremendous difference. Unique visitors are one visit to the website counted per unique IP address in a 24-hour period. Website hits, are just the number of individual image or graphic segments that load when a page is accessed. So, if you look at the chart above, you’ll note that for December 2016, www.brokerforyou.com received 27,437 unique visitors! If you look over on that same row to the last column that’s titled ‘hits’, you’ll see that we had 151,510 hits for December 2016. The huge disparity here is because if one page has 20 or 30 graphic elements that load when the page is accessed, you may have one unique visitor for that day, but, it would show that you had 20 or 30 hits. This is why the amount of hits that a site gets, is really irrelevant. Read more

2017 San Diego real estate forecast
Just yesterday the stock market was up over 297 points continuing the post-election stock market rally. Also, interest rates and home mortgage rates have been increasing and the 30 year home mortgage hit 4%, the highest since July 2015.
In a recent report by Realtor.com, their ‘Realtor.com®’s 2017 Housing Forecast – Top 100 Metros’ of the 50 United States top metropolitan areas, when based on a combination of home appreciation and sales increases, this report forecast that San Diego California will be number 15. Realtor.com in this 2017 housing market forecast is showing that San Diego is projected to have 6.5% housing price increase.
*Note – the above 2017 housing forecast is just that, a forecast or outlook. So, this could be way off from the way the 2017 real estate market actually plays out. A good example of how what many thought was an accurate forecast, and actually the majority view can be totally off was just prior to the election, many forecast the stock market would crash and the economy would tank if Donald Trump was elected. Well, just like the majority forecast of Clinton win up until 9 o’clock or so of the election night, their forecast about the economy and the stock market has been exactly opposite of the reality! so even though this forecast is by a respected leader in the national real estate market, doesn’t mean that you should act on it without first consulting your own legal and financial advisors.
