Real estate pricing is cyclical, so every few years the trends change. House prices have been relatively low from 2010-2013 or so. The market was bound to change and since then we've seen a gradual increase in home prices to the point where they are almost to pre-recession prices; in other words, a general upswing.

The other factor is basic supply and demand. Home inventory levels have been at or near all-time lows for quite some time now, and more home buyers want to jump into the market. This in turn causes multiple people to make offers on the same property and sometimes turns into bidding wars. Homeowners can then pick and choose which offer to accept which is usually the one that will yield them the most money in their pocket.

There's also another factor that starting to take hold, and that's interest rates. It doesn't take an expert to tell you that mortgage interest rates have been at or near all-time lows, but those have started to creep higher. With the fed expected to raise interest rates in September, and some people are speculating 5% or more. Higher rates have the potential of taking buyers out of the market, so home buyers are trying to beat the rush and get in before the rate hike takes effect. More buyers coupled with inventory levels that already low exacerbate the supply and demand factor.

Under the right circumstances, this situation can be prime picking for both home buyer and home seller. Hope that helps!

Dear Tdc,

Without knowing your specific needs and preferred qualities, it is difficult to give you a concrete answer to your question. However, if I were looking for a large home in an area that I consider a safe environment for the best value I would choose Corona or Eastvale. You can pick up a 3,600 sq. ft. home built in the early 2000's in the $300,000 range.

If I were choosing the best overall location for a community which offers large homes with less regard for value I would choose North Alta Loma, North Upland, San Antonio Heights or Claremont. You can pick up a 3,600 sq. ft. home built in the 80's to late 90's for $700,000 +.

The word "best" is a relative term. Are you looking in the Inland Empire, Riverside County, San Bernardino County, High Desert, Low Desert, Orange County or simply by the largest population of "large" homes? I'd love to help you if I understood your needs. Contact me anytime. Good luck to you!

Diane Wheatley, Broker

don't spend that much for rancho. only buy something in that range north of the 210 and east of haven, the old alta loma area - especially near day creek. the old homes up there were old horse farms and are over inflated - and anything south of the 210 is old. also, the stuff near victoria gardens is all newly built and people payed at the market peak for these homes. I no I one that got raked over the coals.
the city is turning into a bunch of heavy handed bureaucrats. they're going crazy with zoning enforcement warnings and such. plus it's not conducive to new businesses especial those they deem "not family friendly" - what ever that's suppose to mean. Uplands ok but be careful of some areas. Not as many new homes there, a lot of 15+ yr old homes that look dated.

Looks like they did! Short term I believe it is beneficial, long term I am not so sure.

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- Senators have struck a deal to extend a popular tax credit for home buyers beyond those buying their first house, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's office said Wednesday.

Legislators also have agreed to extend the tax credit through the end of April, according to a Reuters report.

An $8,000 credit for first-time home buyers is set to expire at the end of November. Under a compromise reached by senators, the credit would be expanded to those who have lived in their home for five consecutive years, a Reid spokeswoman said.

The credit for repeat buyers would be $6,500.

The credit reportedly would be available for individuals making up to $125,000 a year and couples earning up to $225,000 per year, up from the current income limits of $75,000 and $150,000, respectively.

Reid wants to attach the tax-credit measure to a bill that would extend unemployment benefits.

Senators agree to extend tax credit for first-time homebuyers, expanding it to repeat buyers
The Associated Press

Senators have agreed to extend a popular tax credit for first-time homebuyers and to offer a reduced credit to some repeat buyers.

The tax credit provides up to $8,000 to first-time homebuyers but is set to expire at the end of November. A spokeswoman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said senators agreed Wednesday to extend the existing tax credit for first-time homebuyers while offering a reduced credit of up to $6,500 to repeat buyers who have owned their current homes for at least five years.

A congressional aide said the tax credits would be available to homebuyers who sign sales agreements by the end of April. They would have until the end of June to close on their new homes. The aide, who spoke on condition of anonymity, was not authorized to publicly discuss the deal.

Marcell Harris answered:
At this time it is great to buy anywhere as long as your realtor is showing you the greatly under priced properties in your area. As well there are programs who can help provide buyers with up to 6% down payment as a gift which never has to be paid back. So with under priced homes and gift funds for down payment, this is a great time!! ... more
