When Jon Marchese, the owner and television producer of Choice TV Radio approached me several months ago to be a guest on his show I was excited. I knew immediately that my topic would be luxury real estate advertising! With my extensive magazine background in the luxury real estate and lifestyle arena what else would I offer his listening audience? I thought “Oh boy this is going to fun!” Well I was absolutely correct about the fun part.
So as the next couple of weeks flew by I started to think, what would be an interesting story for Jon Marchese’s radio show? The answer came to me in a flash. I was going to invite Newport Beach’s luxury real estate agent Linda Ginex on the show with us. Linda Ginex happens to be one of Newport Beach’s go to movers and shakers in her Coldwell Banker office. In addition to Linda’s luxury real estate track record Linda was also, the woman who helped us map out the business plans for Home & Realty Magazine from our very beginnings back in 2009. Well this story has a lot more to it and Jon Marchese did a wonderful job asking us all the right questions and taking the stress out of our being on the air!
Choice TV Radio is an excellent medium to get your company’s message across in a most fun and exciting surrounding! Yes this is a testimonial and a heartfelt one at that! Thank you so much, Jon Marchese for inviting Linda and I on your show.
We hope everyone pours a beverage and relaxes to our above audio! Learn how luxury real estate advertising is now being integrated with Choice TV Radio and the digital pages of Home & Realty Magazine to help our agent friends who specialize in the world of luxury real estate!

A big jump in mortgage rates over the past two months may start to cool the rapid rise of home prices in the second half of the year, The Wall Street Journal reports.
Mortgage rates have shot up from lows of 3.59 percent in the beginning of May, to 4.58 percent during the last week of June, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association. Rates are at their highest levels in two years.
“A rule of thumb holds that every one percentage point increase in interest rates reduces affordability by 10 percent, so the recent move in rates just made homes about 10 percent more expensive to buyers who need to finance their purchase,” The Wall Street Journal reports.
Still, economists say mortgage rates at 4.5 percent or 5 percent is still very affordable by historical standards. Some economists see rising mortgage rates as a positive. John Burns, chief executive of John Burns Real Estate Consulting, says that rising rates produce more sustainable price increases. “I don’t think it’s the end of price increases, but I think they’re going to moderate significantly,” Burns told The Wall Street Journal.
Generational Home Buying Trends
According to National Association of Realtors and their Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends report: at 31 percent, Gen X comprises the largest group of recent home buyers. Gen Xers were followed in numbers by Gen Y buyers (28 percent), and then younger Baby Boomers (18 percent), older Baby Boomers (14 percent), and the Silent Generation (10 percent). The Greatest Generation, also known as the G.I. Generation, represented less than 1 percent of recent buyers.
The report — a compilation of survey data from 8,501 recent home buyers — also shows that 80 percent of buyers who are aged 57 and younger bought a detached single-family home in 2012. Buyers over the age of 57 are increasingly purchasing townhouses and condos.
The report also found that among all generations of home buyers, the first step in the home buying process is looking online for properties for sale.
Older buyers are less likely to finance their home purchase in comparison to younger buyers; when they do finance, the share of the home they financed is typically smaller.
Survey respondents cited benefits from working with a real estate professional. Among age groups, younger buyers are more likely to want their agent to help them understand the process as they are more likely to have never purchased a home before. Additionally, younger sellers are more likely to use the same real estate agent or broker for their future home purchases than older sellers.
When it comes to selling, Gen X is the largest group who are recent home sellers followed by both younger Baby Boomers and older Baby Boomers, the Silent Generation, and Gen Y. The G.I. Generation represented less than 1 percent of recent sellers.
Home Prices Post Biggest Jump in 7 Years
Home prices are moving up at a quicker pace, rising in May by their largest annual amount in more than seven years with more to come, according to the latest report released by CoreLogic.
Home prices increased 2.6 percent in May over April and have shot up 12.2 percent compared to last year’s prices. CoreLogic economists are predicting that home prices will rise by another 2.9 percent in June, making the yearly price gain 13.2 percent year-over-year.
Tight inventories of homes for sale across the nation have pushed home prices higher, according to CoreLogic.
“Home price appreciation, particularly in much of the western half of the U.S., is increasing at a torrid pace,” says Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic. “Across the country, pent-up demand and continued low interest rates are fueling strong demand for a limited inventory of properties. We expect that trend to continue to drive up prices throughout the balance of the summer months.”
When including distressed sales, the following five states have seen the highest home appreciation in the past year, according to CoreLogic:
