Even though there are more homes on the market and we are entering the spring selling season I have been feeling like more often than not when making offers for our clients we are coming up against other offers. This was confirmed when I read a recent report on a survey conducted by real estate company Redfin. They surveyed 22 markets across the country, looking at offer made in January. If you want to see some interesting findings check out my weekly real estate column, “Bidding Wars: Home Buying Competition Heat Up,” over at Rocklin & Roseville Today.

As the housing market’s busiest season approaches, escalating values are spurring more listings as homeowners regain equity lost in the worst crash since the 1930s. With more sellers looking to cash in on rising prices, would-be buyers likely will have more choice and therefore, relief from the bidding wars of last year.
Our local Roseville and Sacramento housing market has been very active so far this year and we hope it continues to in 2014. For more information, check out my weekly real estate column, “Optimistic Local Housing Market” over at Rocklin & Roseville Today or Sacramento Today.
