Testimonial from clients of Ron Buck

Testimonial from clients of Ron Buck Ron was wonderful to work with he’s very knowledgeable and knows his industry very well. The bonus working with Mr. Buck is his team of professionals that help to get the job done. We were selling and buying at the same time which was very stressful. Mr. Buck’s professionalism and calmness was comforting since we had a quick close on both ends. If you’re looking for a great realtor® he’s the guy!!! Pacific Hills Chiropractic, testimonial Our home buying and selling experiences could not have been better, and we owe it all to Ron. We highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Orange County area. We met Ron at an open house in 2011 and used him as our agent on a 2012 home purchase. When we decided to sell our home in 2017, we knew without question that we would use Ron as the listing agent since he is an “area expert” in Laguna Niguel. He found us a great buyer in just a couple of weeks, and the transaction was very smooth. He walked us through each and every document, explaining everything as only an agent with 20 years of experience can do. Ron also found us our dream home, one that had slipped by our individual searches, and represented us in the purchase – and this transaction too was extremely smooth. He takes a no-nonsense approach to the entire process, and his deep knowledge of real estate matters is extremely comforting, especially if you haven’t gone through the process before.

Housing Market Shift?

Housing Market shift?? To be or not to be? Many buyers are hoping that home prices are coming down. Are we seeing a housing market shift? If they are seeing anything to support that scenario at this time it is the normal seasonal pattern. The heaviest listing months are March, April and May. The peak inventory hits every August. Overpriced listings will either come off the market or reduce their price by the fall. When overpriced listing reduce the price and eventually sell it gives the appearance of falling prices. For Market Info Click Here. That being said, interest rates have been climbing since the election. Partly due to the shift of investor money from bonds back to stocks. Interest rates have moved from the high 3’s to the low 4’s. As long as the economy improves a quarter to half point should not be a problem but if the rates go up much more many buyers will be left in the dust and the market will slow down. Orange County and CA in general has some of the worst affordability charts right now. Only about 12% of the population can buy a median priced home. The last report I got from economist Steven Thomas, said to expect only a 2% appreciation in the housing market in 2017. That was before the current interest rate hike. To sum it up many of us are worried about the affordability ratio in our area and certainly if the rates go up a full point then we are expecting a HOUSING MARKET SHIFT with longer selling times and possible price drops. Buyers should still buy while they can get the low rates because a 1% rise in interest rates is equal to a 10% shift in price. So if you are payment driven buy now!
