The Best Time To Sell Since San Francisco Real Estate Went Bust…Is Now

I’ve often said, if you can’t say it better yourself, just plagiarize. Or something like that. 😉

Even if it means sharing information from a “competing” brokerage. Mark McLaughlin is the CEO of local real estate company Pacific Union. His recent article pretty much sums up my thoughts exactly. Especially, if you live in Cole Valley.

I asked him, “Do you have any data that might suggest how poor earnings of the investment banks and the capped bonuses of the investment bankers impact the luxury goods and real estate markets in the San Francisco Bay Area?”

His response was fairly simple and as follows: “No data. I would think the Apple, Google, Facebook etc. income gains would swamp any losses in the finance sector in the Bay Area.”

It is very important to remind our sellers that the both the buyer demographics and the traditional selling season in our markets have, in fact, changed – and for the most part, our markets are supply-constrained. We have more motivated buyers than we do properly improved, located and priced properties for sale.

Put another way, now is the best time I’ve seen since 2007 to list your property for sale. Demand is through the roof.

Wall Street vs. Apple, Google, Facebook, etc.
