los angeles: The Competitive San Diego Real Estate Market - 2.21.2013 - 02/21/13 04:04 PM
Beautiful San Diego waters are just one of the many things to love about living here.

As I have mentioned in previous blog posts, the market is becoming increasingly competitive with the number of cash in hand buyers. If you have to wait for a loan to be approved and/or the approved money to be available, you are no match for those that already have the funds. This can be frustrating and lead to even the most qualified of buyers missing out on making the sale.
