Buyer Tips—Buying in a hot, Multiple-Offer real estate Market
My last column dealt with multiple offers from the homeowner’s perspective. What about you Buyers? The big difference between the Seller and Buyer is the SELLER will reach their goals in quick order-attracting an offer(s) and selling their house. Buyers, however, may be making an offer on their 5th property.  Let us explore some strategies and tips we use with Buyers.

buyers for real estate: Not all home sell! Good news for Buyers--Reality for Sellers. - 10/17/16 11:55 AM

Let’s analyze the current real estate marketplace in Sonoma County. The inventory of homes is not gaining traction. Our biggest month so far this year was March for … (2 comments)
