Our market continues to cooling as our absorption rate continues a slow march up.

Here’s a note to buyer’s~~~just my opinion~~~you better make sure your agent knows the market! The highest priced Sold this week was a short sale all cash and again in my opinion that buyer paid about $100,000 over market value for it. I sure hope he couldn’t live without it!

The market appears to continue to slow. Cash buyers continue to right low ball offers and asset managers on bank owned properties continue to counter them back at full-price. Not sure who is more out of touch. That’s my soapbox for this week!

Wow! For some reason it feels like the market has fallen off a cliff…..Whatever cycle the market is in there is still a micro-cycle within and we are in what I call the dregs of summer! That being said…our absorption rate for the San Benito County has reached 1 month. We have not seen this number in probably 2 years. Interest Rates remain historically low i.e. around 4.5% but lending standards are tougher than we’ve ever seen. The economy seems worse than what we’re hearing in the news…..Our market values have come down about 58% from the peak so if you can make a purchase…it is an awesome time to buy!
