CNBC published a survey taken from Coldwell Banker Real Estate of nearly 2,000 markets and ranked Malibu, California as the priciest market. Malibu is one of the nation’s most beautiful housing markets and the most expensive. The report identified 20 markets where a four-bedroom, two-bath house costs more than $1 million and eight markets where a similar home lists for less than $100,000. Thirteen of the country’s 25 priciest markets are in California. International moguls and movie stars alike have long considered Malibu a getaway, but that may be changing. ”With its laid-back yet star-studded lifestyle, Malibu is undergoing a transformation from a seasonal destination to a year-round locale,” Madison Hildebrand said in a release. Hildebrand is an agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Malibu and one of the stars of Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing.”

NAR’s 2013 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers includes survey responses from 8,767 people who purchased a home between July 2012 and June 2013. Just over 4 in 10 buyers started the homebuying process by looking for properties online, followed distantly by those whose first step was to contact a real estate agent. Online websites and agents tied as the most common information sources homebuyers used in their search with 89 percent using each. Yard signs followed at 51 percent.
“While the vast majority of buyers use the Internet during the homebuying process, the Internet does not replace the real estate agent in the transaction. In fact, buyers who used the Internet were more likely than those who did not use the Internet to purchase their home through an agent,” the report said. Among both buyers and sellers, the most common way they found their real estate agent was through a referral from a friend, neighbor or family member. Among sellers, 25 percent used an agent they had used previously to buy or sell a home. For buyers, that percentage was cut in half. Buyers were twice as likely to find their agent through an online website than sellers. Among the skills buyer respondents valued in a real estate agent, the most valued skills were honesty and integrity; knowledge of the purchase process; responsiveness; knowledge of the real estate market; and negotiation skills. More than 86 percent of buyers said those skills were “very important.” By contrast, only 46 percent said “skills with technology” were very important.
