The exciting world of real estate saw a bit of a slow start during the first quarter of 2017 in the East Bay Area. With a new Presidency comes concerns whether warranted or not. There was also HUGE delays due to the massive amounts of rainfall in our area. Getting landscaping, exterior painting and other maintenance done during storm season is near impossible. Many of our listings were put on hold due to weather. Buyers were anticipating open houses and tours, and agents were clamoring to get into listings before they went live on the MLS. Once the winter storms settled and the economy proved stable, sellers were ready to go live. With so many buyers and such high need in March and April alone we closed 4 massive transactions in record timing—one off market!
Our market has been highlighted all over the news as it surpasses that of our neighbor across the Bay. San Francisco real estate is seeing a slow down while the East Bay continues to flare up. Below, we detail our significant sales thus far this year. From a quaint yet super chic Upper Rockridge cottage to a massive Piedmont mansion, we are seeing success across the board.
