Dick Clark’s “Flinstone House” Sells In Malibu After 3 Years on Market.

After 3 years of being on the market, the famous home of the late Dick Clark nicknamed “The Flintstone House” is finally sold for $1,777,777 which is roughly half of what the home originally listed for in 2012 ($3.5 mil).

This home was  a “getaway home” that Dick Clark and his wife built in the 1980’s. The property is 23 acres amid protected land and trails in the Santa Monica Mountains Promontory.  “I came up with the idea that if the house looked like a rock formation, the park conservancy would let us build on top,” architect Phillip Jon Brown told CNNMoney.

The only way you can reach the property is by a three mile drive along a canyon road. The seclusion and feeling of isolation was immense. The unbelievable view that is 360 degrees, including the Pacific Ocean, Boney and Santa Monica Mountains is the ball dropping feature of this rock era enclave. The property is specifically designated for equestrian use which gives it even a more “one with nature” feel to it.

The iconic television personality, who died in 2012 at 82, hosted American Bandstand for more than three decades starting in the 1950’s as well as other game shows.

Clark and his wife Kari were married at 7pm on July 7th, 1977 on 7/7/77 in a ceremony that was rumored to last 17 minutes and had only 7 guests. He is also said to have a post office box numbered 7777.

San Diego Home Prices Gain and Outpaces U.S. Real Estate Sales.

San Diego Real Estate Sales prices surge and reach higher than United Sates Real Estate Sales.

 

San Diego Home Prices Outpace U.S.

San Diego Home Prices Outpace U.S.

The pace of U.S. home-price increases began to slow by mid-year but not in San Diego County, where values took their largest annual jump in more than eight years, the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index showed on Tuesday.

San Diego home prices in June rose 19 percent from a year ago, which marks its largest year-over-year hike since March 2005. The latest data also shows San Diego is outpacing national home-price growth, which was 12 percent when tallying all 20 areas in the index.

All 20 major metros in the Case-Shiller report showed price gains in June’s report, but fewer cities saw faster growth this month than last month. In this report, six fit that bill. In the previous report, it was 10. Also, more than half of the areas in the index showed weaker month-to-month gains.

The sudden uptick may have pushed some on-the-fence buyers into the market but also may have priced out others.

“Home buyers may be discouraged and sharp increases may be dampened,” said David M. Blitzer, chairman of the index committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices, in this month’s analysis.

The significant drop in local foreclosure resales also may explain why the county outpaced the nation in home-price growth. Foreclosure resales, which tend to carry discounts, made up 7 percent of home sales in June, down from 20 percent the previous year.

Home prices are rising in part because an increasing number of real estate investors are putting their investments on the market, typically refurbished and going at a higher price, said Lea, with San Diego State University.

San Diego County’s median continues to hover at a 5-1/2 year high.

 10 Reasons for Selling Your Home During The Holidays.

Selling your home during the Holidays can be an advantage!

Selling during the holidays can often be easier.

Selling during the holidays can often be easier.

1. People looking are generally more serious buyers.

2. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from, the seller has less competition to sell.

3. Houses are especially appealing with holiday decor.

4. After holidays the supply of listings increases substantially which lowers the demand for your home.

5. Buyers tend to be emotionally motivated at year-end.

6. Buyers have more time to look with less constrained work schedule than non-seasonal time.

7. Many people will purchase by year-end for tax-purposes.

8. You can still be on the market, but have the option to restrict showings to 6-7 days during the holidays.

9. Sell now, and specify a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year.

10. Be selling now, you have an opportunity to buy during the spring, when many houses are on the market.

Happy House Hunting or Selling!
