HI Angeofmk:

I am happy to assist you in your request to have your property taxes reduced. 4 homes in St. Augustine have sold within the past 6 months, in fact they have sold in the past 3 months which means that they more accurately reflect today's market. The average price per sq. ft. of these pool homes is $244.24 and I list the details below:

1. 3/3 - 2,659SF - $209.85SF - $558,000 (bank owned)
2. 3/3 - 2,525SF - $257.43SF - $650,000
3. 3/3 - 2,525SF - $271.29SF - $685,000
4. 4/4.5 - 3,125SF - $238.40SF - $745,000

Needless to say, some of these homes were more upgraded than others, which is reflected in the sales price. Similar homes currently on the market are priced even less in most cases. If you would like more information, please contact me. I am a Rancho Mirage specialist and would be delighted to assist you or anyone else interested in Rancho Mirage real estate.

Hi Gregory:

Here is a link from last Friday's Desert Sun newspaper that talks about the current status of the Ritz Carlton. Be sure to print it today since they only have a 7 day archive for viewing past articles. If you can't access it I can email you a copy of the article.

Hello Eldon:

Of homes sold at the Springs over the past 6 months (which gives a more accurate picture than using one year sales) the average price per sq. ft. is $226.92. However, that is skewed due to the fact that one home was an REO and at the other end of the spectrum, one was highly upgraded/remodeled with incredible fairway views. As you can imagine, the price of these homes is very dependent on their condition and location. I list below the sq. footage and sales prices of recent sales:

3BR/3BA - 2,561 sq. ft. - $450,000 (bank owned)
3BR/3BA - 2,694 sq. ft. - $500,000 (private pool/spa)
3BR/3BA - 2,908 sq. ft. - $500,000 (on golf course)
3BR/3BA - 2,950 sq. ft. - $600,000
3BR/3BA - 2,475 sq. ft. - $985,000 (upgraded/remodeled - magnificient golf course views)

If you would like to contact me, I will be delighted to provide more detailed information on the different models, HOA dues, golf club membership etc.

Denise Canell answered:
Hi Cheryl: A few things: Are you on the multiple listing system for your area? Also, do you have a lock box? A lock box is very important in this market. If there are 10 homes in the area on the market , and nine have lock boxes, and one says "must make appointment with seller", that listing may be put on the back burner. Have you asked your agent what he/she thinks the home has not sold? Are you getting regular showings? Also....you may be lower than the comparables...but are the comparables selling? Even though you are lower, you may still be too high for the current market. ... more

You need air to live, but just how much depends on where you're at and how hard you're working. And the same is true in real estate.

The deposit is required in CA in order to make the agreement a contract. So, technically, your deposit can be $1. That being said, Sellers look at the deposit as a measure of how serious you are as a Buyer. Some will tell you to put 3%, but there is no hard and fast rule.

Consult your agent for advice as to how best to construct your particular offer. I usually ask my clients to put at least 1%, but every situation is different.

Please be sure to know your rights as they realte to contingency periods, arbitration, and liquidated damages too!

Thanks for the opportunity to answer your question. If you need anything else you can reach me directly at 951-571-9229 or sean.giorgianni@gmail.com

Hi Royce!

As with everything here in The Desert, the price per sq ft for New Construction varies.

There are two kinds of New Homes Construction. You can either find a lot in an area that you like and get your own private contractor or there are quite a few New Home Developments that are currently being built.

I will do a little research and get you some detailed figures that break down these costs.

R....

The best bet is to view the property. If it was previously listed their may or may not be inspections reports that might be able to be picked up. Unfortunately with bank owned property there is not much information. They usually acquire the property thru foreclosure and do not have disclosures or inspection reports. ... more

Susan London answered:
If you are thinking of renting seasonally, turnkey furnished, you should look for a golf/tennis development with pools, spas, fitness center, etc. Our winter tenants come for the weather and outdoor activities that they can't find at home this time of year. If you hope to use the unit for your own pleasure at times, this is the best option. If you choose long-term, unfurnished, you have the advantage of receiving monthly income versus income for only three to four months per year. Which is best for you? You need to crunch the numbers including down payment, HOA dues, taxes, insurance. How many months can you carry the unit or have the unit vacant? Once you have this figured out, I can better help you with locations.

I own investment property in the Desert and it all depends in what area the condo is located. Is it in a country club community? Is it on fee or leased land? What are the HOA dues? Rancho Mirage is a great community...there is a lot of inventory on the market....making it a great time to by.

I see ouare from Canada.....are you considering buying for use "in season" only?
