St. Patricks Day
WHERE IN ORANGE COUNTY TO LIVE LIKE A LOCAL


Looking to #LiveLikeaLocal and need to know #WhereInOC to go find “The LUCK of the Irish"? You can count on Echelberger Group to keep you informed with what is happening locally. 

History of St. Patrick’s Day
A day of green – St. Patrick’s Day is filled the brim with Irish culture, both authentic and borrowed. This original day observance marks the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. However, around the world, a religious feast begun in the 17th century has transformed into a variety of festivals with parades, special foods, music, and a whole lot of green.

One thing has always been true, merriment has always been abundant on 17th day of March. For over 1,000 years, Irish families have

Protect Your Home
Whether you’re buying a house or even thinking about it, you’re probably hearing a lot about insurance and how you need it. But there are so many kinds and you’re not really even sure which ones do what and if you actually need them all.

Car insurance was a breeze, there’s only the one kind — it’s either going to fix the car you run into or that car and yours, too (basically), but with home-related insurance, there are a lot of strange specialties, and other things that aren’t quite insurance, but act like insurance.

How will you know which you really need to protect your home and which are just a waste of your hard-earned cash? Let us walk you through it.

Through a Buyer’s Eyes
Selling your home is one of the most tricky parts of owning a home, really. There are always little projects that you meant to get to and didn’t, and things that probably weren’t perfect, but didn’t bother you enough to fix. You can’t possibly do everything to make your house like new before putting it on the market, but there’s a minimum level that most buyers will expect.


How many of those things left on your “to do” list absolutely need to become “to dones?

Getting Ready to Sell that Home Sweet Home
Before you get too serious about selling, it’s a good idea to have your Realtor over for a quick walkthrough. They can give you a punch list of items they think should be updated, fixed or addressed in some other way before you sell your home. You never know…

There have been far fewer homeowners selling their homes annually ever since the start of the Great Recession.

Lack of Sellers: In the face of massive home appreciation and excellent conditions that have favored sellers for years now, fewer homeowners are opting to sell.

Orange County Housing Market Summary: 

  • The active listing inventory increased by 197 homes in the past two weeks, up 5%, and now totals 4,178. Expect the inventory to increase from now through mid-Summer. Last year, there were 4,460 homes on the market, 282 more than today.
  • There are 26% fewer homes on the market below $500,000 today compared to last year at this time and demand is down by 12%. Fewer and fewer homes and condominiums are now priced below $500,000. This price

SAN CLEMENTE CELEBRATING 90 YEARS

As our beloved “Spanish Village by the Sea” celebrates its 90th anniversary, our team at Echelberger Group is grateful to be a small part of its rich, vibrant history. Like San Clemente’s founder, Ole Hanson, we share the vision of a healthy, happy community where residents can live, work, play and, most importantly, create cherished memories that will last a lifetime.

Investing In Your Home
You’ve lived in your home a little while and you think you sort of understand how it should flow. You’re starting to see the warts and little bits of rough that people tend to gloss over when the neighbors pop by to borrow the lawnmower. It’s not that these things make your home flawed — all homes are flawed, they’re made from flawed materials, after all — it’s just that your home could be better and like a skilled craftsman, you’re starting to see places where you could bring out greater potential.

But, which projects make the most sense to do first? Will any of them actually pay for themselves in gained home equity, or are these changes things you’ll have to consider sunk costs in your home and investments strictly in your own enjoyment? And furthermore,…
