There is absolutely no correlation with free coffee and the housing market but since Peet's Coffee & Tea is giving away free coffee on Mother's Day, we thought we would share it with you.

From your mobile device,  just show the coupon above to your favorite barista.  By the way, Peet's Coffee & Tea would be a great place to meet your favorite Realtor (us perhaps) for a cup of coffee and start your home search. 

The market has been extremely strong through spring so far with little improvement in inventory. Buyers are still scrambling to get in while rates are still at historic lows. That dynamic is still driving multiple offers on many properties. Properties in turn key condition are receiving multiple offers consistently. As I mention to my buyers, "If you love it, there are going to be at least eight others who love it as well".
The real opportunities can be in the homes needing a little bit of TLC as many buyers will back away from any post escrow work. On a promising note, June and early July can represent some of the best buying opportunities as many buyers step away from the market to attend graduations and take early vacations once the kids get out of school. Keep an eye out on more inventory, less pending sales and very likely some good price reductions during this time frame. We are already starting to see price reductions in many markets. Just this week there were 125 reduced across the East Bay market. You can view all active listings in our markets on the links by city below:
