#1 Reason to Buy Now

Prices continue to rise and we have not seen interest rates follow suite. Act fast because once interest rates take off, we will see the market dip just like we did in August and September of 2013.  We probably have another year and a half of upside so Buy now!

Is It Time To Sell?

Yes, and here are 5 good reasons to sell now:

1. Price increases have brought your equity back.  2013 brought some of the largest gains in decades. Most owners in the Tri-Valley now have plenty equity in order to complete a non-distressed sale.

# 2. If a planned move-up is in your future, do it now! An anticipated 10% rise in prices means your current, less expensive home, is appreciating less dollars than the larger, more expensive one.  The sooner your move up happens the better.

# 3. Increased competition means that your home will mostly likely sell closer to list price and on average, over list price in the Livermore Valley.  If you trust my expertise on pricing and list with my team, you should expect to sell at 103.5% of list price.  That’s my average. ( That’s above the Realtor average in town. I will always give you my honest, professional opinion on pricing an explain my proven pricing strategy.)

# 4. Get on market before others! Beat the competition to market. Prepare now and reap the rewards later with a higher return on your investment.

# 5. We have tremendous pent up demand for people to move.  Sell easily now and with the help of my team, use a proven strategy to ensure you find the perfect home in a timely fashion.

New Loan Limits For FHA in 2014

In counties that currently have a loan limit of 729,750 for 2013 will be reduced to 625,500.  These counties include Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, San Francisco and other counties to be considered High Cost counties by HUD.

Although the bulk of Buyers are in lower price ranges, any change in the loan limit will have some measurable effect on purchasing in California high value markets.

If you are considering a purchase using this kind of financing in a high price market area, you will want to find that home by the end 2013, otherwise you will need to consider other financing options.

For any questions or to get started on your home search now, please call me.   925-580-9829
