Market Update | Prices Keep Rising

posted on July 18th, 2014 | filed under: Buying Strategies, Market Update, NoCo SD Market Conditions, Uncategorized

Trends at a Glance - July 2014The median price of single-family, re-sale homes reached its highest level since November 2007.

Since the beginning of the year, the 3-month moving average median price has gained 6%.

The rise in prices is pulling home owners out from under water. We can see this in the large increases in active listings over the past two months.

Rising inventory has ameliorated the rise in prices. After 17 out of 18 months with double-digit price increases, year-over-year, the last three months have produced only single-digit price increases.

Price increases should continue to slow for the rest of the year.

Another Successfull Sale | Investment Property

Azuaga

Jeff managed to make a real estate investment purchase transaction a stress free, positive experience, all in the time frame that was available to u.

As my husband was out of the country, Jeff provided me guidance and educated comments based on his experience, to allow me to better weigh the deciding factors and keep with our goal. He made things much easier by being responsive, anticipating questions and being overall proactive. Jeff visibly put a great deal of his time and efforts into our project daily, working with me and all players involved in the transaction as necessary along the way. He made the difference by keeping connected and reaching out to me throughout all stages of the purchasing process. Jeff showed very patient during the decision process.

Jeff’s demeanor is very professional, unemotional, yet approachable and friendly. I felt confident with the team of professionals that Jeff suggested as well, whom I found competent and reliable (including Jeff’s wonderful assistant Jennifer who made sure there was no administrative loose ends until after the close of escrow!)

Jeff’s other notable qualities: graciously adapts to personal and business necessities that arise during research or negotiations; gets actively involved in seeking prospects or solutions in the best interest of his client; shows true, fundamental business values and human qualities.

Finally, in the short time frame that was available to me, Jeff was able to make things happen timely but also safely. Thanks Jeff! I would definitely use Jeff for future real estate investments.

After our daughter was born, we quickly outgrew our apartment. We knew we had to move, but didn’t think we could afford a home on the coast until a friend recommend we call Jeff.
