Homes Sales are up from Last Year


 Are you ready for some good news? The National Association of Realtors (NAR) just released some news about existing home sales and the numbers are made of things we dream of – a 10.4% increase from the same month last year. Yeah, you read that right! The home inventory is increasing and home sales are up. Time to come out and look at what is available in the Sierra Foothills.

great news for Bay area people that want to sell their homes and move to the country.

While there are many variables that go into this increase in sales (i.e., improving economy, jobs market loosening) there are some mortgage-related changes that that might help you sell and/or buy fast:

Specialties: Real Estate Horse Property Specialist, Buyer's Agent, Listing Agent, Consulting Also Reiki Master, Shamanic Practitioner, Life Coach Consultant I have been developing and selling real estate since 1976. I am a lifetime top achiever and member of Remax Hall of Fame. I specialize in Horse and Ranch property. One of the most important things I have learned over the years, is to LISTEN to the needs of my clients. I do not try to sell them a home; rather, I try to help them find the home of their choice. A home is one of the most important decisions you will make in your lifetime and finding the right agent to help you do it , is most important, after all you are trusting them to help you with this decision. I know it is more than just seeing a home on the internet, it is feeling the home in your soul. It is about how you feel when you walk through the front door and the way you can instantly envision your life unfolding there. I tell clients to drive around different areas first to see what area feels good to them. Then we can find a home in that area. My clients are most important to me and seeing them smile makes me smile. This is about more than real estate. It is about your life and your dreams.It is my sincere pleasure to help Diane
