Who’s Got Your Back?

Two words alone have, rightly, loomed large in discussions about California’s housing market this year: inventory and affordability. A tight supply of homes available for sale has helped to keep strong upward pressure on home prices, which in turn has caused further deterioration of affordability in the state.   As housing becomes more expensive, and the cost of living between expensive central areas and outlying counties expands, people begin to make decisions on the trade-offs between living farther out (and in larger houses) and commuting longer to their jobs.  For your next purchase or rental who’s got your back?  Subscribe and/or Follow me on Twitter for strategies to navigate the housing market!

California April 2016 Home Sales Report

Take a look!  Home pricing is getting MORE expensive!  The median price of a home has now reached over $500K statewide!  What is driving the growth in pricing?  Take a closer look!  Sales of single family homes DECREASED from last year and the previous year!  From my conversations more homeowners are staying put, making housing more scarce and driving prices of existing homes higher.  Many homeowners are taking advantage of lower property taxes by holding onto what real estate they have instead up trading up or down.  Questions?  Email me for more assistance on how to buy or sell a home in this market!
