Buying and Selling in Orange County

We are thrilled to bring you our Moving to Orange County Guide sponsored by Impact Properties Heather Moulden + Stephanie Brannon

moving to Orange countyBuying in Orange County will vary in experience based on area, market conditions and availability of homes. Some neighborhoods in OC have buyers flocking in droves to each new property listed, while others experience a softer market with slow property sales.

Each buyer’s experience varies, but there are some common things to check out for each home you consider for purchase.

  1. Does the property have a Homeowners Association?
  2. Is there Mello Roos?
  3. What is the property tax rate?
  4. Determine traffic, zoning, crime rate and schools
  5. How far away are local amenities? (Parks, shops, and restaurants)

All of these things can make big differences in your mortgage, commute, and lifestyle.  That’s is why it’s so important to have a dedicated REALTOR® by your side!

If you’re thinking about selling your home, there are a ton of “you should try this” articles that will help you get your home ready to sell, but the best advice we can give is to contact an expert.

Would you want brain surgery by picking a name randomly from a list or would you want to know you’re choosing the most qualified surgeon to operate? Now before you say “well this isn’t brain surgery,” hear us out.

This is typically one of the biggest financial decisions you’ll ever make in your life. It requires expertise in contract negotiations, finesse in working with multiple parties involved in a transaction and accurately bringing your home to the market with the utmost professionalism and care given for your particular scenario.

No two homes are identical, nor are the people who reside in your home, and therefore by reading someone else’s success story, it won’t necessarily translate the exact same for your specific needs. Selling a home takes time, dedication and a lot of decisions along the way before you ever have a “For Sale” sign placed in your yard. Our goal is to empower our clients to make informed real estate decisions beyond just the sale of the home, and ultimately that requires an expert to guide you through the process.

Here are a few ideas to help you sell your home for top dollar!
