Buying Homes for Sale in the Bay Area In Today’s Market


If you are in the market to buy a home for sale in the Bay Area area, you are no doubt aware that you have company.  The market has shifted to a full blown seller’s market for most price ranges. The combination of record low interest rates (still), lower prices, and an improving economy have combined to add strong demand to a market already constrained by low inventory.


The reality of current market conditions has complicated the process of securing a home.  Aggressive buyers are overbidding for homes for sale in many of the local markets, and the increase in competition makes it imperative that buyers have a sound strategy for dealing with competition from other buyers


Competing in a Multiple Offer Environment

There are many unique factors that buyers must consider in a over-heated seller’s market, including:

  • What is a reasonable range of value for this property?

  • How many other offers does the seller have or expect?

  • What are the issues that may arise from the appraisal should it come in below the sales price?

  • What can we do to increase our chances of getting our offer accepted other than raise the offering price?

  • What is the best way to deal with inspection issues that may arise?

  • What are your financial constraints?

  • What is your comfort level with the property and what it might take to secure it?
