Buyers are still optimistic of being a homeowner

Half of the year has gone by and the real estate market is still pretty hot, especially here in the San Francisco Bay Area.  If you’re planning to sell your home now or in the future, there are buyers ready to purchase your home now and in the future.  A lot of buyers are very practical and will purchase a home in a good school district as oppose to having a other benefits the home may offer.

If you’re planning to sell your home, you want to make the home appeal to what the buyers are looking for in a home.  Don’t wait too long, there is a forecast that says home values are going to peak in 2016.

Properties are selling like hot cakes!

Last year, in 2013, more then half of the homes sold were on the market for 6 weeks or less.  This was the shortest time on the market since 2005.  One of the reasons why homes sold so quickly was due to lower then normal inventory levels.   In this type of market, sellers are seeing more and more offers over the asking price.  In 2013, 50% of the properties that sold last year, sold over the asking price. Most of the sales, almost all, had multiple offers to buy the property.  When this happens, buyers have no choice but to participate in an auction type situation.  The situation is changing and the inventory levels have increased, providing buyers with more choices.  As prices increase, sellers are more willing to make a move.

This is still a good time to purchase a home.  A couple of things to think about when buying a property, you might want to know how the neighborhood will fit in your lifestyle and since we are in a drought, how will the property help you conserve water.

California prices are up!!

If you’re thinking about selling your property here in California, now might be a good time for you to do so.  Median home prices are up in most, if not all of the counties in California.  Locally,  San Mateo and Santa Clara counties have low inventory, but is increasing, so there would be more buyers for your home and you’ll get a higher price for now.  It’s been about approx. 7 years since the great recession and finally we see an improvement for our state.

If it’s the right time to sell, don’t forget to use a REALTOR.  You’ll be glad you did.  There are so many things involved in a sale, you need a REALTOR to help you get the best price for your home, with least amount of stress.  Believe me, if you don’t know what you’re doing, it will cost you in the end.  The fee is still tax deductible until the government takes it away.  Remember when commercial property mortgage payments and your interest paid to credit cards were tax deductible ?  Well not anymore.

What do the buyers say?

HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYBODY!!!  It’s that time of the year when real estate sales starts to slow down and everybody is shopping for gifts instead of homes.  However, there are still buyers out there looking to purchase a home before the year is over.  If you’re thinking of selling, find out what buyers want and don’t want.  This could help you get your home sold faster.  If you live in areas that have increased in value, you may want to cash in now.   If you’re having problems keeping your home, at least you will not be responsible for paying taxes on the loan you didn’t pay off.
