Is it a Buyer's Market or Seller's Market?????

Real Estate Agent with Mountain House Real Estate

Great information for buyers and sellers in Mountain House.

Is it a Buyer's Market or a Seller's Market?  This questions was recently asked me via a "Twitter"

My answer is YES! YES! YES!

This is especially true in my local area of Tracy, Mountain House and the Central Valley of California.

The buyer opportunities are amazing, interest rates are the lowest they have ever been in history.  Prices are at an 15 year low.  Why shouldn't buyers be buying?

As to Sellers, there are so many opportunities for buyers that many buyers are buying.  This leads to fierce competition for well priced, maintained 'tier' one properties.  Sellers are seeing multiple offers on properties, over asking price is common, and most properties are selling within the first 30 days on the market.

So the SIMPLE answer is YES!

If you're not in the "game" why not?  What are you waiting for?  If you are a seller looking to sell,  Sell LOW, BUY LOW_- you'll make up the difference in what was and what is in no time.
