Orange County Market Update

As we approach the summer selling season of 2013, the Orange County real estate market continues to improve even though there is very limited supply.  The real estate market is still dominated by distressed sales, both bank foreclosures and short sales.  Mortgage rates continue to be at or near historic lows which has created a great demand for Orange County Homes and condos.  The great demand coupled with fact that banks have been slow to process short sales and even slower to foreclose on Orange County properties has led to a very limited inventory of Orange County Homes for Sale.  This low level of inventory is most concentrated at the lower price points as many first time buyers look to take advantage of the lower prices and historic low mortgage rates.  While the low inventory is most apparent at the lower levels, limited inventory is a true issue at most levels of the Orange County Real Market.

Due to the very low inventroy and the great demand for Orange County real estate from both first time buyers and investors, Orange County Real Estate Values have increased over the past year.  These increased Orange County home values provide a great opportunity for those sellers that sat on the sidelines over the past few years to sell their properties.  It still remains a great market for both first time buyers and move up buyers to take advantage of the historic low mortgage rates. 

Looking forward this limited supply should continue for the balance of 2013.  Due to the limited supply there will continue to be multiple offers on properties priced corrrectly.  At this point most Orange County homes listed in the local MLS are selling with the first two weeks of being on the market.
