Right now cash is king. Homes are consistently going for over list price with multiple offer scenarios being commonplace.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
The San Francisco market is seeing a great seller's market. Multiple offer situations, cash in hand, and homes going to market earlier to meet buyer demand.
Business Insider reports, "Going into 2013, home prices are expected to rise 6 percent driven by steady demand, lower bank-owned (REO) sales, and lower inventory of unsold homes. This is according to CoreLogic's latest report. The CoreLogic Home Price Index (HPI) increased 6.3 percent in 2012, the largest increase and highest level since 2006. And year-over-year home price increases were more widespread. This increase in home prices across a broader geographic spread is expected to continue in 2013."
“Right now cash is king. Homes are consistently going for over list price with multiple offer scenarios being commonplace. Cash buyers who don’t have to deal with the financing world are winning.” Says Dahle. “A 6% increase for the year is a very promising number and we're looking forward to a great 2013.”
