The market in Orange County has recovered and homes are selling in a somewhat timely manner. If your home seems to be a little more difficult to sell than your neighbor’s home, it’s time to gain a broader perspective on what the market means for your property.

Current Property Values in Orange County

The average home value in Orange County are $659,700, and this average comes from a vast array of properties. Values span from the low-mid $300,000s to well above $1,000,000. Orange County is largely dichotomized when it comes to property styles and standards of living, and if you live in a luxury neighborhood, you probably already know.

Homeowners may be excited to see the sums these top dollar homes are going for, but they’re more so the exception than the rule. The high priced homes in North Tustin and Villa Park are few and far between, and don’t necessarily represent an average that’s indicative of Orange County.  In fact, they largely skew it.

The majority of homes in the area are valued under $500,000, with the Laguna Woods average being largely representative of what Orange County homeowners can expect to fetch for their properties. It’s worth noting that these averages are for the kinds of homes that buyers are genuinely making offers on.

Homes that are worse for wear may not even come close to what a homeowner may expect. The same goes for homes that haven’t been updated in a long time. A retro style kitchen certainly has charm, but a lot of potential buyers may not see that. This can affect what a homeowner can reasonably presume they’ll receive in terms of an offer when looking to sell their property.

An Overview of Orange County's Current Real Estate Market

Orange County property values went frighteningly low in 2011, and didn’t truly begin to recover until 2013. While the market is reasonably healthy and stable, it isn’t in a continual state of growth. It’s been growing and continues to be projected to grow at less than 0.5% per year. While this is a good indicator that home values are safe, it also means that the ascent is finished. The value your home currently sits at won’t change much over the next decade.

This means that the time to sell is right now. The average listing time is at 68 days. While this is not the best, it’s better than many other areas of California. Though over 18% of homes are selling at a price cut, they’re still selling in less than 3 months. Less than 8% are selling for less than their previous sale price, and while this number may seem high, it’s important to remember that it compares to 15% in some areas of the country.

If your home has listed for 80 days or longer, and price cuts aren’t making it more attractive to buyers, this is undoubtedly bad news. Homes are being bought, and the average buyer is more than likely uninterested in your home. If you find yourself in this situation, it’s time to start thinking about other ways to sell your home – especially if you’re attempting to sell within a limited time-frame.

Relisting is likely to lead to more of the same, and with the amount of price cuts you’ll likely face, you’ll be wasting both time and money. You may be able to attempt to dress your home up, but certain factors, such as undesirable neighborhoods, may render your efforts virtually useless.

What if You Haven't Been Able to Sell or Need to Sell ASAP?

Sometimes, the issue is the neighborhood. If you live in Santa Ana, you’re probably struggling with the sale of your home. There are a multitude of reasons why many buyers are looking to stay away from the Santa Ana area. The city has a less than impressive rate when it comes to safety, with violent crimes and robberies being significantly more prevalent than its surrounding areas.

Though it isn’t nearly as bad as it used to be, the city still leaves a bad taste in the mouths of many families. If it isn’t the neighborhood, the reason your home isn’t selling is related to the property itself. If you haven’t had the time or the money to keep things well maintained, buyers are quick to notice. They’re more likely to overlook your property in favor of a similarly priced home that needs little to no work.

If your home looks like it’s stuck in the past, buyers may feel the same way. A lot of buyers are sold on sight of a home, and tastes change over time. If you have a few thousand dollars to invest in your home, it may help it sell. If you don’t, you might find yourself in a seemingly inescapable position. There’s a lid for every pot. Someone will be willing to buy your home regardless of its condition, and they’ll be willing to do so in a timely manner. If you haven’t already considered the option, working with a home investor is always on the table.

Why Sell Your Home to a Real Estate Investor?

Working with an investor requires virtually no preparation. Investors love homes that are hard to sell, and they’re willing to commit themselves to the laundry list of work these homes will need to be made attractive to traditional buyers.
