Sales are still holding up as we sail through October towards winter! It will be interesting to see how the holiday season, which is nearly upon us, shapes up this year since the buyer frenzy does not seem to be slackening at all. Multiple offers are the norm on properties in our average price range of $300,000 and less. Makes a person wonder how the elections will impact our local market. Here are the results of the market activity in the Santa Maria Valley during the week of October 14-20, 2012!
A total of 49 new sales over 44 the week before. Not bad for a time of year when sales traditionally slow down! But when interest rates are under 4% for most purchase loan programs, it could be expected, and prices are still very favorable, it’s game on!
If you are a buyer, be sure you are prequalified and even better, preapproved, for your loan. It’s very competitive right now, and it’s no time to think you can put an offer in without your lender being behind you. Get your team together before you jump in the game or you won’t stand a chance of winning. I”m happy to help you with that, just give me a call at (805)937-5777 or send an email.
