Some people might say that there is no inventory in Santa Rosa right now, but I would say that depends on the price range you are looking and what your criteria is. What is surprising is that there is a lot of inventory, it just goes fast. If you are a home buyer you need to be ready for this market to make an offer because homes do not last in Santa Rosa, and for that fact in Sonoma County. The real estate market is hot and if the home is priced right than it will sell fast. There are plenty of home buyers out there right now, some have been looking for several months and are waiting for the right house or have been beat out of the market.
There are a lot of ways to capitalize on this market if you are selling or buying. Interest rates are still low and it is important to get pre-qualified so you know what you can afford. Sellers want to make sure you are approved or they won’t even give you a second look in this market. Make sure you have proof of funds ready as well to show that you have the money available for your down payment. This will make you look like you are ready to buy, you are financially stable, and that you are a serious buyer.
It is still a great time to buy and to beat out the competition you need to be prepared and ready to go!
