Newsletter Update - Aug 2017
As we wind down the summer months, the local real estate market continues to heat up. Typically after the Fourth of July the market slows down a little, but because buyers are so anxious to purchase, the few properties that hit the market are still selling quickly. I recently l listed a home that needed a lot of work (kind description) and it sat on a corner lot that was next to a fairly busy street. I received 10 offers on that property and it is in escrow $76,000 over asking price. Amazing! It just goes to show that owning property here in the South Bay is truly a blessing and it allows for some many other things to happen down the line. You can refinance and remodel, take out a reverse mortgage and stay in the home, or sell it at a high price and live comfortably just about anywhere else in the country. On the flip side it's a tough market for buyers as they are competing with so many other buyers and often find themselves outbid on most offers and "out financed" as many of these homes are being purchased all cash. You don't find too many kids of local homeowners able to buy in the same neighborhood where they grew up.
