Hello, hello! Looking out the office window...sunshine! Every other day the sun comes up a minute earlier and every evening the sun goes down a minute later until we reach Summer Solstice, which is the longest day of the year (see the tip re: Sunrise Times app below). I bring this up because as the days get longer, buyers have more time and enthusiasm to look at homes. Interestingly, I heard from a colleague in San Jose whose clients wrote an offer, but the prevailing buyer went $130k over the list with no contingencies. The seller received 38 offers and accepted one that was ten percent over list price.

The goal of this newsletter is to give you context for what is happening in the Davis market. Using the example above, perhaps that property was underpriced, maybe the buyers' ailing parents live next door, or the situation was an outlier of some type. With 38 offers, the property was obviously in HIGH demand!

In Davis, there are 28 active properties on the market. Twelve new listings hit the market over the past two weeks with 3 of the new listings going pending. Of the total pending transactions, MLS indicates that five were multiple-offer situations. Apply skepticism because three indicated multiple offers after 27 to 61 days on the market which causes me to raise an eyebrow. Perhaps, the listing agents are including consecutive versus concurrent offers which is not the intention of the data point. In any event, five listings closed with two properties squeaking over full price. Not bad for the middle of winter. Of the five closings, three were cash.
