Welcome to John Briscoe Homes
Newsletter Update - March 2017
We finally got a lot of the rain this state badly needed in the last few months. Hopefully this will sustain us until next year. I can't remember so much rain in such a short period of time and that one particular Sunday was crazy. Anyway, the views of the mountains and downtown LA skyline were good to see so clearly once again. The local real estate market is experiencing a tremendous velocity, and it definitely reminds me of 2006. I don't know if that is a good thing but something to pay attention to as the year unfolds. It's been basically the same old story of low inventory and high demand combined with low rates. The interest rates are not as low last year but the inventory is even less than last year and demand seems to have picked up as well. This all leads to multiple offers and one particular property in West Torrance had over 20 offers on it. Of course it depends where you initially list the property, and once again all cash is king, winning over financed offers even with heavy down payments.
