Prudential California Realty was Voted the BEST

Prudential California Realty was recently voted San Diego’s Best Real Estate Brokerage in the Best of 2010 poll.  More than 100,000 readers took the time to cast a nomination for their favorite businesses in San Diego during this year’s poll, which was conducted by the San Diego Union.

“Every member of our team, from our agents, managers and support staff, to the professionals in our marketing, relocation and technology departments has contributed to our success and the winning of this award,” said President and CEO Jon Cook. “We are very proud to receive this distinction and would like to thank our San Diego North County clients for their years of loyalty and support.”

Cook also acknowledged that Prudential California Realty’s commitment to offer clients relevant information about the condition of local real estate markets had been a key factor in the company’s ongoing success. “To facilitate the goals of our clients, we ensure that they receive practical advice and useful insights about all of the communities we serve,” he said. “Having 58 locations allows us to provide local-based representation for clients with a broad spectrum of needs.”

Prudential California Realty also offers professional and comprehensive representation throughout San Diego County,  Southern California and the Central Coast. A Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, Prudential California Realty is one of the top five brokerages in the nation.

Prudential was also recently named the leading brokerage for satisfaction among home sellers, in a survey conducted by J.D. Power and Associates. The achievement is especially impressive in light of the fact that the condition of the housing market has been more favorable to buyers over the past year, and seller satisfaction rates are typically low when the economy reflects a buyer’s market.
Prudential California Realty is an independently owned and operated member of The Prudential Real Estate Affiliates, Inc.

Did You Miss the Bottom?

Prudential California Realty - Gary Harmon

San Diego North County real estate market heats up.

San Diego is one of the five California real estate markets that turned positive in April or May.    San Diego home prices appreciated as much as 3.1% to 3.9%  since hitting lows in the previous year according to Zillow.  But missing the bottom doesn’t mean the opportunity is gone for North County buyers.  San Diego North County homes values are still down 30%  to 36%.   They still make a good investment for North County property buyers.

North County Realtor

The San Diego North County real estate market is considered being balanced when there are six months of inventory on hand.  Market conditions are favorable to both North County buyers and North County sellers.  A buyer’s market is characterized by conditions such as falling prices, high inventories, concession by sellers, and incentives among other things.  A North County seller’s market has low inventories of North County homes for sale, increasing prices, and real competition between buyers, including multiple offers on many properties.Escondido Real Estate
