Selling before buying can be really tricky in a market like this, but you do have options. Let me help by first
filling out this form so I can get started on pricing your current home, and then we can discuss options to prevent a double move, or worse, not being able to buy the replacement!

FORECAST: The next few months will be challenging for buyers as many sellers are going to take their home off the market for the holidays. If you have a unique property to sell now may be the best time for it to come onto the market. As a buyer I would be concerned about being priced out of these markets if you don’t get into something soon. If you are thinking about making a move call me so we can discuss your specific situation.

RECAP: Santa Clara County
New listings for the month of January are even less this year than last. Buying opportunities will remain limited until more people bring their home to the market.

RECAP: San Mateo County
San Mateo County inventory rose faster than Santa Clara County’s, however, demand is still outpacing supply. CALL ME IF YOU NEED ANY SPECIFIC INFORMATION.
