Is the real estate market improving?

It seems like the market is improving.  Sales have been increasing and here are 8 areas that are showing signs of a recovery.

I have been experiencing a market that resembles the last seller’s market not a buyer’s market.  There is not a lot of inventory available for all of the buyers here in the Bay Area.  I have a property for sale in Pacifica, Ca, listed at $338k and received 6 offers and all above the list price.  I have been also representing buyers and making offers to purchase, but have been in bidding wars.   In San Mateo county, it would take approx. 4.1 months to sell all of the homes that are on the market compared to 4.5 months same time last year.  Where are all of the bank owned properties?
