In Contract! Congratulations to our new homebuyers in Alameda!

Lynne MacFarlane Homes - In Contract 1825 Shoreline Alameda, California

 

It’s been a hot real estate market in the SF Bay Area, multiple offers on many properties, nevertheless my buyers were tired of paying rent and believed it was time to start building their own wealth by investing in real estate. We searched in Los Gatos, Mountain View and all the good school districts as they have two twin boys. We were able to locate the properties in desired school districts and check out only the ones with specific schools.

Know Why Tech Hubs in the S.F. Bay Area / Silicon Valley Have Edge in the Housing Recovery

Tech Hubs, such as #SanJose, #Sunnyvale, #santaclaracounty may have the edge in the housing recovery. “New supply” and “pace of sales” remained below during COVID19/SIP January, but in the West Coast, by June 21, it surpasses and continues to lead the recovery with the overall index now visibly above the pre-COVID benchmark.

What’s Driving Our Recovery?

1) Weather 2) COVID-19 containment 3) Economic resilience are three key factors driving regional differences in the housing recovery.

Realtor’s previous study about the spread of COVID-19 is closely linked to the housing slowdown, with markets with higher cases per capita more likely to see a bigger impact on supply and the pace of sales. It found that the speed and sustainability of the reopening, and each market’s ability to contain COVID-19, are dictating the speed of recovery across the regions.

Resilient economies may have an edge in the housing recovery, and areas with strong job markets before COVID-19, especially those with thriving #tech sectors, are seeing buyers and sellers reconnect faster than the rest of the country.
