Case-Shiller: New Jump In Bay Area Home Prices

The new S&P Case-Shiller Home Price Index for April 2014 came out today and it showed another bump in home prices for the 5-county San Francisco Metro Statistical Area. For homes in the upper tier of home values – as most of San Francisco’s are – prices are up approximately 17% in the past 12 months and up 41% since the recovery began in early 2012.

Based upon what we are seeing on the ground in the market, we expect another bump in the May Index, which will come out at the end of July.

USA is through to the next round!!  (Sorry if you had it recorded and I just spoiled.)

Bubble Pop?

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the pattern here:

When will this recent frenzy of overbids, multiple offers, and crazy price appreciation end? Will it end? Will it pop or just fizzle? Will you get out “on top”?

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…if you’re on the fence about selling, you might want to seriously consider getting off that rickety old fence.
