A brisk market with rising final sale prices. Buyer demand for homes is strong in 50 neighborhoods of Oakland, Berkley and Alameda. Remain flexible, and leaving room for competitive offers is key.

Sale to List Price 122% (+5%)

Patty: Sale to List Price rose 5% over last month as more sales were made, yet still limited inventory under $1.2m means bidding remains competitive nudging up final sale pricing across the board.

SOLD $1,285,000 (+$267,000)

Patty: The $1.2m - $1.7m price point is the most active with homes flying off the market within 7 days. Competitive bidding is making final sale prices rise, 6% in the last 30 days. Think of purchasing in higher $$$ areas off-season or be prepared to compete.

Take advantage of my nearly 40 years of real estate experience to find the right “modicum of charm” home or provide expert listing representation for your referrals in the San Francisco East Bay.

Let’s help our clients have a smooth transition by making great agent recommendations.
