The rains are starting again. Yay!!! This is great news for California. It is not always great news for Santa Cruz home sellers. 
Many Silicon Valley rental property investors go to Santa Cruz when the sun is shining and the temps are in the 70's, see what a great place it is, discover how high the rents are and how relatively affordable the Santa Cruz housing prices are, and decide to buy a Santa Cruz rental property in the summer, along with the everyone else.

silicon valley investment properties: How To Live In Silicon Valley When You Can't Afford To Buy Here - 01/01/18 10:35 AM

 
Many young, well paid Professionals and Tech workers come to the Silicon Valley for good jobs, its wonderful weather, and incredible cultural and family friendly amenities. But they get here and find that the cost of Silicon Valley housing is prohibitive, or impossible to buy buy to the competition in their price range.
Another issue that comes up all the time is that a young buyer can afford to buy a home, but does not want to live where or in what he or she can afford in the Silicon Valley.

Silicon Valley Home Prices are on the rise. Inventory is low, and there are plenty of buyers out there making multiple offers the norm, not the exception. Investors have been a big factor in the market since the crash, but now it may be time for a change if you are an investor.
