Photos taken while previewing real estate and new homes in Cielo

Since yesterday morning the surf report said 1-2 foot, I decided to be a 100% Realtor for the day. There was a broker caravan in Cielo, Rancho Santa Fe, of 6 homes for sale in Cielo, priced from around 1.6 to 5 million bucks.  I figured this would be a great time to get some great photos and keep up-to-date with the Cielo real estate market. 

These are completely random photos I took while I had a few seconds, I spent a lot of my time using my drone and these photos are from my iPhone. I like to compare iPhone photos vs my drone photos, which yo can see here in a separate post about Cielo Homes Rancho Santa Fe.

I have some great footage of this home below using my drone. Very contemporary home with open indoor outdoor space.

This one is a great buy in Upper Cielo for just under 1.6 million.

Unique Challenges In Selling Rancho Santa Fe Luxury Homes


Unique Challenges In Selling Rancho Santa Fe Luxury Homes


If you own a luxury home in Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar, Carmel Valley or areas like Santaluz in San Diego,  this will be good to know: according to researchers at DataQuick, the number of homes sold at more than $1 million rose nationally by 37% in the first half of 2013. Two weeks ago, the Wall St. Journal headed its Mansion section with “the recovery in high-end real estate,” and Bloomberg reports that luxury home prices in the biggest four cities that had fallen nearly 46% during the downturn have now more than doubled.

If the formerly-missing luxury home buyers have been buoyed by record-breaking Wall St. returns, it’s not surprising that they’re now ready to come out of hiding to buy Rancho Santa Fe Real Estate. For some owners of luxury homes in Rancho Santa Fe, Fairbanks Ranch, The Bridges, Cielo, The Crosby, including Olivenhain and nearby areas, that’s what they’ve been waiting for.

Of course, marketing a luxury home in Rancho Santa Fe California takes a deft hand. Selling any product in the luxury category requires some familiar skills: since the price tags are top-tier, the buyers require service and goods to match. The ‘customer’ is a successful person; someone whose time is important; who is likely well-schooled in discerning quality that goes beneath the surface and who won’t hesitate when it comes to making important decisions about buying or selling Rancho Santa Fe Property.

To appeal to discriminating prospects, you need first class marketing, which is why I’m a Realtor with Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty in Del Mar & Rancho Santa Fe. Briefly, here are some of the technical points I advise my clients to keep in mind when I list their luxury homes:

We will be targeting a very narrow segment of the population. Our advertisements need to be placed on websites and in luxury publications that those buyers frequent. It’s important to realize that placement in elite publications will enhance a property’s perceived value by association.

When people purchase a luxury property in Rancho Santa Fe, they aren’t just buying a house, they are reinforcing a preferred way of life. That means the community should be a prime selling point when buying or selling Rancho Santa Fe Real Estate. You have insider knowledge of your community—knowledge that I as your agent can use in marketing. When potential buyers have a sense of being in the know, it allows them to more confidently picture life in their new community.

Successful people usually regard themselves as standouts because, well…they are! It’s hard to find the luxury home buyer who wouldn’t choose a distinctive property over one that, even though luxurious, isn’t special in some way. That’s why we carefully identify the points that make a luxury home in Rancho Santa Fe unique—then tell that story!

If you are preparing to sell your Rancho Santa Fe luxury property, it’s also important to team with a local Rancho Santa Fe real estate expert with the contacts and networks that keyed to that segment. For a completely confidential Rancho Santa Fe property evaluation, contact me today to see what your luxury home might be worth in today’s market!
