Just a brief bit of info and it's all good. The latest unemployment benefits filings nationally are down, now around 360,000, the lowest in 3.5 yrs! Also, in California, jobless rate is down to single digits (too high, but moving in the right direction), and here in Marin in the mid-7%'s! These numbers, coupled with continued historic lows in interest rates, mean that the market is great for buyers. A buyer can afford to pay more for a home as the monthly payment won't be as bad at these rates. For Sellers, although things have slowed a little bit for the holidays, in another couple of weeks, buyers will be back on the market, cash in hand and looking to buy! Don't disappoint them! There is not nearly enough inventory available to keep even a small portion of the buyers happy, and with rates helping them out, what better opportunity to sell your home! Call us for any assistance you may need!
Finally, Hanukkah is here; Christmas arrives in 35 hours and 40 minutes; and the New Year follows in a week. Jane and I want to wish all of our valued friends and clients the happiest of holidays and a healthy and prosperous New Year!
