Video Review: Downey Gateway - "Things To Do In Downey, CA"

by Southern Californias Top Producing Mother & Son Te

I know we wrote about this place a couple of blog posts earlier but we wanted to give a live experience of the place (Downey Gateway) because it's the newest place in Downey to hang out and grab a bite.  There's actually a Cross Fit in the same complex so you can get your work out on before stuffing your face with all the good food there is to offer.  One of the places that I'm most excited about was "Fresh Cutt Carving Grill."  The menu concept is practically identical to Chipotle's but it's take to a whole other level offering not only a choice of Burrito, Tacos, or a bowl, but even Pizza, wraps, paninis and a few other options.  That is definitely a go-to place.  Unfortunately we didn't go there to eat this time.  We went to Waba grill witch was actually also pretty good.  Enjoy the video and if you're thinking about buying or selling your home in Downey, CA, you know who to call!  (562) 883-1003.

As expected home values according to SoCAL MLS reports are showing another increase in sales prices from April to May 2013.  The average sales price in May was $436,153, a small jump up from April of about $3,000.  It’s not a huge jump by any means but it is showing a continuing momentum in the upward direction for home values in Downey and surrounding areas.  We are now up approximately 16.2% in average home sales values for 2013.

The picture we created above explains everything.  As we mentioned before, simple economics tells us that when Supply is low, demand is high.  And if demand is high, well when it comes to real estate we’re talking an increase in home purchase prices!   Only $1,205 Listings came Active on the market last month which the lowest amount of homes to come on the market in 4 years!  Look to your right and you’ll see that the same amount of homes is selling each month.  This means one thing; people are still buying homes at the same rate but the selection from which buyers have to choose from is limited.  This is why it’s a great time to sell your home!  With a limited supply and with not as many homes for buyers to choose from, your home is extremely desirable and is very well a hot commodity at this time.  Sellers will most definitely get the most bang for their buck if they sell now!

Now this is not to discourage buyer’s… Although interest rates have climbed up since the beginning of the year, overall compared to the boom of 2004-2007, they are WAY, WAY, WAY LOW!  Right now according to interest rates in California are around the 4.15% area.  If you’re a buyer, know this, property values are going to climb higher and interest rates are projected to increase by the end of the year.  So if you want to buy a home, waiting to make a move is not in your best interest.  Make a move now!  We can help you!   Call us 562-883-1003!

Downey Gateway is NOW OPEN!

by Southern Californias Top Producing Mother & Son Te

Being active and always out and about in the Downey area on our listing appointments, showing property and passing out marketing material, we’ve always wondered when the Downey Gateway  was going to finally be complete.  It was at times a major bummer seeing the Yogurtland sign on those hot days when we were doing an open house and not being able to go and get a cold treat as it was still under construction.  We are happy to say that the Downey Gateway is now officially open just in time for summer.  Yogurtland, Round Table Pizza, Waba Grill, Pacific Fish Grill, Subway, Starfish Sushi, Burger City Grill, Noodle World, and the one I’m particularly excited to try, Fresh Cutt Carving Grill are pretty much up and running now aside from Starfish Sushi and Noodle World. 

We encourage you to go and check it out.  In the next week or 2 stay tuned to our blog because we are going to take our camera there to give you a better look at this great new addition to Downey!  This really is going to be something that unifies Downey.   People always need to eat and what better way to unify a city than to have all these wonderful places to lounge and eat, not to mention the amazing Porto’s Café and bakery right across the street.  It doesn’t get much better than this!
