Summer 2023 Home Buyer Guide

Summer will be here soon! But if you are thinking about buying a home, my Summer 2023 Home Buyer Guide is ready. And you can easily download it for FREE.

If you are planning to sell a home, check out my 2023 Summer Home Seller Guide, too! I would take a look at this important article as well – Planning to Sell – Where Will You Go?

The housing market is competitive, and changing, and it’s essential to be educated about the home search and buying process. That’s true in Carlsbad, and elsewhere in North San Diego County. It’s challenging to buy a home these days because of the local market conditions including low inventory!

There are new things to learn even if you are an experienced home buyer. This is particularly true if you have not bought a home for a while! Furthermore, the housing market conditions keep changing and these affect inventory, pricing, and competition. Let’s talk about how.

It’s important to be as educated as possible, in order to navigate the home buying process successfully, and achieve your real estate goals.

While the 2023 SUMMER HOME BUYER GUIDE doesn’t cover everything you should know, it will help you better understand the following issues, and more. And the Guide might raise questions you haven’t even thought about that we can discuss:

1. What’s Happening in the Housing Market?

2. The 3 Factors Affecting Housing Affordability Today

3. Top Reasons to Own Your Home

4. 4 Tips for Making Your Best Offer

When we work together on your home search and purchase I’ll explain everything you need to know. Plus I’ll answer all of your questions, including those you didn’t even realize you had!


HOME BUYING TIPS AND ADVICE is a playlist of 23 short videos on my YouTube Channel. This series covers important things to know about when buying a house. The videos do not cover everything that you should be aware of. But you’ll learn more about what to expect, and get answers to some essential questions.

If you are also planning to sell, my videos on HOME SELLING TIPS AND ADVICE will help prepare you. If you would like more information about the local real estate market conditions, the home purchase process, life in Carlsbad and North San Diego County, getting pre-approved (unless you are paying cash), and related matters, please get in touch with me by calling or texting (760) 840-1360.

Do you need to get pre-approved for a loan? It’s critical to have this in order to make an offer. Also, some sellers and listing agents want to see a pre-approval letter even before confirming a showing. And you want to know what your buying power is in this market, don’t you?!

I can provide several recommendations of lenders I know personally that you can speak with. Please call directly, or text me, at (760) 840-1360 and we can discuss what you need and how I can help!
