And then there were None – 0 Active Listings in Fusion to Start February

By Keith Kyle

There’s low inventory and then there is NO inventory. Unfortunately that’s where we are at in Fusion with the last of the active listings going into escrow. As it’s an ideal time to sell, it’s unusual to see so few homes on the market. In general the market picks up in February but with inventory having been so low for so long….we’ll just have to wait and see.

What Aren’t More People Selling in Fusion South Bay?

By Keith Kyle

With sky high prices, intense buyer demand and clearly a sellers market….why are so few homes coming on the market in Fusion?

That’s certainly a good question with no simple answer.  Perception is certainly a part of it as many homeowners think that if the value in their Fusion home $100,000 in the past year, why wouldn’t it go up another $100,000 in the next year.  It’s tough to keep in mind that there is a ceiling at some point and the rise in interest rates will, inevitably, slow the market down.

Another challenge for both buyers and sellers is the attempt to time the market.  This means sellers selling at the absolute peak and buyers buying at the low point.  In very rare cases this works for a lucky few but most don’t get so lucky and often times waiting can cost a lot of money.

While the bottom line is important to both buyers and sellers, each should focus on the motivations and reasons.   Selling a home is a big decision and there are factors equally important to maximizing profits.  As we’ve seen in the last few years it doesn’t take long to switch from a buyers market to a sellers market and then back again.

Whether you are interested in selling or just curious on the value of your home in Fusion South Bay, we would be happy to provide a free, and no obligation, value analysis on your home.

Suddenly Some New Home Inventory in Fusion South Bay

By Keith Kylefusion-pool-spa

It wasn’t long ago that we were wondering if the market would ever slow down in Fusion.  We also wondered if list prices had gotten too high and whether some very excessive list prices would start to slow things down a bit.  It appears as though that might be the case as we are now beginning to see some price reductions and some list prices we thought were well out of line (keep in mind we’ve thought that before only to see yet a new record sales price) are starting to come down.

As of October 27th there are 4 homes on the market with several having been on for quite a while.   If you want to keep current on the real estate market in Fusion, fill out our request for to receive FREE email updates whenever a new home in Fusion comes on the market.



Rare Short Sale in Fusion

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a short sale in Fusion (or anywhere else in the area for that matter) but one just 5 patiocame on the market.  The reason short sales are so rare these days is that with values in Fusion rising so rapidly it’s hard to understand just how anyone could be underwater.  Having said that it does still happen on occasion.  The current 3 bedroom unit is price well below the current market at $650,000 but whatever number is accepted has to be approved by the bank and that’s always the challenge.  To learn more about short sales and foreclosures visit our South Bay foreclosure information page at

2 Record Breaking Fusion Sales in July 2016

By Keith Kyle

July 2016 saw 2 record breaking sales in Fusion South Bay with no real end in sight.  The first home was at 5507 W 149th Pl #3 and was a 2 bedroom “F floorplan” that sold at a whopping $725,000.  That is a number that hadn’t even been seen on 3 bedroom homes a year or so ago.

Fusion South Bay homes sold in July

The second home was located at 5402 W 149th Pl #17 and was a smaller D floorplan that sold for $700,000.  Those are well beyond peak prices and both set new records.  Each unit was very nicely done and had some great finishes but these were both prices that would have been absolutely unthinkable a year ago.
