It is a Seller's Market on the North Peninsula of the San Francisco Bay Area

There is a lack of homes for sale on the market today. There are few foreclosures and not many short sales to bring down the value of your home. This might be the time you were waiting for. Prices are inching up ever so slightly and well-priced homes in clean, decent, condition are selling quickly with multiple offers above the list price. I think it might be time for you to talk with your Real Estate Consultant. Sunday Open Homes are over flowing with buyers. They want to buy now with the lowest interest rates ever. With the low interest rates they are approved for a higher priced home than previously. We are going into the prime spring and summer selling season. Please feel free to contact me to discuss the market, your home’s value, and your options. I also help homeowners owing more than the home is worth. I am a certified Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource.

Please look at these numbers. I don’t run these numbers often. I am in the market every day and I am amazed at these numbers and the major change from last year. A 60% decrease in the number of homes for sale. An average of 13 days for a home to sell! WOW!!!
