San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 08, 2016
After three years of dizzying price increases, it seems as though the San Francisco market has reached a plateau. Tim Gullicksen of the Gullicksen Group has shared with homebuyers, shoppers and others throughout the Bay Area that now is the time to check out the housing market, as prices have settled for the first time in months. Condo prices in the second quarter of 2016 are unchanged from a year ago, and the median single family price rose just two percent (Bloomberg.com June 17, 2016).
This slight increase is rare for the Bay Area and those who are shopping in the market are encouraged to take advantage of this rarity.
Housing inventory remains quite low, so demand is robust, but the mania of ever-increasing values has subsided. The buyers that Gullicksen is currently working with are very pleased that the market is stopping to catch its breath, he said. The prospect of a period of flat values is welcome news to them.
The cooling off appears to be more pronounced in the higher end of the market. Those looking to spend $1.5 million or less should expect to see multiple offers, as well as overbidding. The difference now is that the recent comparable sales are a good indication of what the home should sell for.
