Wishing For a Crystal Ball

graph-1 graphI wish I had a crystal ball to show what the real estate market in the Tri-Valley was going to do.  In reality, nobody has this magic ball, but we are able to intelligently guess what is going to happen by considering a variety of indicators and subjectively concluding a predictable future. If you believe that markets actually do have cycles then it’s pretty darn simple. Expect for Livermore and the surrounding market to plateau over the next 18 months and then gradually hit a down cycle. If you are an investor, now is NOT the time to buy for cash flow in Livermore and the surrounding area.  Most pricing is just too high in the detached market. Muli-units need to be viewed independently.

If you are first time homebuyer or a move-up Buyer and are considering a long term purchase, now is the time to buy.  Holding long term will weather any market decline. A long term strategy makes people wealthy with real estate.  If purchasing for a shorter duration,  lets say less than 4 years, you may want to consider a 5 or 7 year variable rate loan, and make sure you get a good deal when you purchase.

In the short term as we enter the August, 2014 Tri-Valley market, we will see increased market days, higher inventory and return to a more balanced real estate market.  Sellers will pay a heavy price if  they over price their homes.  Nicely priced homes will still sell fairly quickly. It’s critical for Sellers to understand pricing dynamics and trust their agent with pricing recommendations.

Buyers have suffered enough over the last 24 months while trying purchase homes here in the Tri-Valley, especially in my backyard, Livermore, CA. If you are a Buyer, it’s time to dry your tears.  A new kind of real estate market has arrived. We have seen a shift to longer market days and price reductions. We have returned to a more “normal” market.

What does a more “normal” market bring? It brings the contingent Buyer. With less competition a Buyer can now make an offer on a property and not have to compete for the home. Good news!  I’ve been in sales now for 9 years and just had my first back to back to back contingent sale process.  There are so many things to consider during the negotiation process.

This market still requires a professional. Do you need one? Please call us today. We are happy to help you navigate.
