COMMUNITY - The First Mother & Son Real Estate Scholarship

by Southern Californias Top Producing Mother & Son Te

This surely was a night to remember!  Recently we awarded a very deserving young lady from Downey High School a scholarship to help fund her education this fall at UCI.  We partnered with our company Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, California Properties to offer the very first Mother & Son Real Estate Scholarship.  This scholarship is awarded to a student who is part of a single parent home and has the aspiration to continue their education.  One of our goals for 2016 was to give back to a community that has given so much to us over the years.  

Maria Palacios provided for her 2 sons running a small beauty salon for 20 years in the city of Downey before switching careers and diving into the real estate world.  Once Chris graduated college he decided to partner with his mother and establish their family team in Downey.  12 years later they are running a successful business and it's all because of the support from the wonderful community and residents of Downey and surrounding cities that they are where they are at today...  Learn how your child can earn this scholarship.  
See the video that talks all about the scholarship opportunity:​

Home Values up again going into Summer

by Southern Californias Top Producing Mother & Son Te

We are now at the 2nd highest average sales price in the past 4 years.  June 2015 shows the highest point in the past 4 year at an average sales price of $561,968 which seems to be more of an abnormal spike in prices.  Looking at the big picture though, we can see the consistent upward trend being displayed on the graph.  Year to date we are already at a 5% increase in average sales prices.  Let’s zoom out a little more… January of 2012 to date we are at a 39.3% increase in average sales prices! 

The market is definitely moving and right now we hit the summer months which theoretically is the most ideal time for families to make a move.  The demand for homes is still astronomically high in Downey and surrounding areas like Bellflower, Norwalk, Lakewood, Paramount and even South Gate and Huntington Park. We are seeing a lot of people upgrading to better areas and neighborhoods because now is the perfect time for sellers to take advantage of that 40% increase in their equity as mentioned above. 

We are seeing homeowners that purchased in 2010 who have grown their equity past the 40% mark wanting to make a move.  With Britain making their exit from the European Union and with the election around the corner we don’t think there will be any drastic changes in interest rates at least through the summer so if you are looking to buy or sell, there truly couldn’t be a better time!  Take advantage of the low interest rates.  Sellers make use of the equity to upgrade… If you’re a seller you can even downsize buy something smaller, less expensive than the home you own and pocket the majority of your equity.  It really is a great time in the market.

What Linda & Edgar had to say . . .

We are so excited for this wonderful family and their future. We upgraded them from a 3 bedroom home in Compton to a wonderful location in North Downey. Here's what Linda and Edgar had to say about working with us.

"If you find your self looking to sell and buy, this is the team to choose! We knew it would be tough going through this process but Maria and Chris did an amazing job making things go smooth and on point! Their entire team is great making things easy for you to understand! We will definitely use them again for our future purchase and will highly recommend them to our friends and family!"

We may be getting our own show on TLC or HGTV!

Here's a clip of our interview with Naomi Channel of Curve Media based out of London.  They are the same company that produced property brothers on HGTV and many other shows on TLC as well as other cable networks.  There was a call out for a family real estate show and The Mother & Son Real Estate Team seemed to fit the criteria.  

The funny thing is, we never looked for an opportunity like this.  We've always been focused on serving our clients and working really hard in our community, and somehow through the internet presence that we've created in Southern California as the Mother & Son Real Estate Team she found us…   Toward the end of the clip you can hear Naomi say that she's going to pitch us out to TLC and HGTV to see if we can be a part of a show on their network.  

We're really excited for this opportunity, but in the meantime if you could think of anyone we can serve reach out to us.  We're always here for you, your friends and family!
