The first quarter of 2017 is in the books, so what happened?
Well… the market has outdone everyone's predictions. We are seeing month over month price increases, we are seeing buyer activity at an all time high, and we aren't seeing any signs of this slowing down. Why? Because we don't have enough inventory. I think this is due to the common concern I keep hearing from potential sellers… they are concerned if they sell, they won't be able to find their next home. (If this is you, read our Sellers Advice in 2 weeks)
With all that being said, here are the stats to back this up:
Closed Sales decreased 0.8% for Detached homes & 14.1% for Attached homes, however inventory decreased 29.9% for Detached homes and 34.7% for Attached homes which caused the Median Sales Price to increase 7.9% to $565,000!
DOM (Days on Market) decreased 13.6% for Detached homes & 17.1% for Attached.

"My husband and I highly recommend Joseph, he is honest, and straight forward. He won't let you move into a place that is in a bad location. So thankful for that. He isn't just some realtor trying to get a sale. He honestly cares about where his clients are going to live and for that we are so grateful.
We just bought a condominium in Vista, and we absolutely love it. It's in the exact location that we had wanted from the beginning. Joseph is always working hard to make sure you get exactly what you want. When we made an offer on the condo, we were not sure what was going to happen. (We had made an offer on two other houses before this one and both turned down or got better offers.) Well they excepted and we couldn't have been more thrilled. Joseph was in constant contact to make sure that everything was going smoothly and that we were doing everything we needed to do. His assistant Tracey was extremely helpful as well. Answered my calls late at night because I had a question. The process went so smoothly, I kept thinking we had to do something else. We closed less then a month later and were just in awe at how well it went. We will recommend Joseph to everyone who is interested in buying.
Thank you so very much for all your help Joseph Arendsen & group."
