Make Your Hard Work Worthwhile 

You will hear me say over and over again that San Diego is a unique market.  San Diego is America's Finest City, that is our slogan.  San Diego is a desirable place to live and housing prices reflect accordingly. The San Diego market can be dictated by the number of homes on the market and the number of buyers out there.  The San Diego market tends to have very low inventory.  When the housing bubble hit San Diego housing prices were very high and it has taken a long time for prices to reflect what people owe - seller's have been holding on for longer to be able to sell.  Because seller's are holding on - it leaves the market with low inventory.  

According to Homesnap.com San Diego Metro area real estate home sales were down 10.9% to 2999 in the last 30 days as of 9/14/2016. The median sales price rose to $500,000 over the latest reporting period from $496,414 in spite of the decrease in sales.  Because of a 3 month low inventory our area is a sellers market. 

If you have a home that is well maintained and priced appropriately it will be likely that the home will receive multiple offers. Buyers will flock to the property as they are looking for a good deal.
