Government Shutdown Induced Market Breather
The pace of value increases year over year is 30%+ in some East Bay cities but that appreciation level cannot be sustained. As I mentioned in previous blogs, the move up in prices in the bay area was a hyper-correction bringing us off the bottom and back to the norm of historic premiums for California real estate. This current pause in the market from my perspective is much needed and will provide for a longer term healthier market. Spring market of 2014 will be robust with much more inventory coming to market and a much better buyer / seller balance. Inventory will spike a bit more than normal due to the fact that many bay area home owners are moving above their underwater mark and now with equity can make a move.
