If you hear someone say the Real Estate Market here is dead.. Trust me, they are “mis-informed”..!
It seems just about every time I find a property a buyer I’m working with has an interest in, we’ve had to compete with other buyers to get 1st in line.
A home we listed “for sale” at 2925 North Platte Way, Sacramento just last Thursday, has generated 5 offers…! This home is located in the North Natomas area where there has been a flood of foreclosures and short sales the last several years.
No matter, there was an offer on the property the next day after it posted on the Multiple Listing Service. Folks… this is nothing new and almost any Real Estate Agent or Broker in the area will verify what I’m saying here.
Even the rough ones, the “fixers”, are selling. You go back a couple of weeks ago to a blog post I made regarding a unique investment property over in the Fair Oaks area that had 23 offers…!
Bottom line…? If you are in the market now, chances are you will experience this for yourself… that is, having to compete against other buyers for the same opportunity. You might even have to bid on several properties before you finally get the right one. So don’t get discouraged. It’s just the market we’re in now.
Make it a Great Day…!
