As Markets Cool, Buyers Gaining Power in Hot West Coast Metros

https://www.zillow.com/research/major-metros-cooling-23228/

The cooling of the housing market that started last year — more of a normalizing than an actual correction — is actually the third time the market has slowed since it bottomed out in 2012. The first came in early 2014 and early 2016 — and this most recent national cooling began in May 2018.

This research is looking backward. I suspect the Bay Area market will heat up again this year.

Up up and away. Prices to increase 20+% across the board by end of year.

:-1: I am not done buying… :cry:

Poor you. Should have done a better job back in 2011… :smile:

You have cash to buy :scream:

SJ market started to show 2-3weeks of listing to pending period just like previous years. I heard that multi offer bidding started as well a couple of weeks ago. We can have more accurate info in a few months but i guess start of hot season shifted from January to March this year.

You have a few 100k to spare? :cry:

Where are you buying? What type of property are you interested?

Ask the wrong person, my wife controls the purse strings. Should ask @wuqijun and @harriet :neutral_face:

Are you begging for money now? Where’s the dignity?? :rofl:

My dignity is for sale. Give me 200K and it’s yours. :smile:

That’s a cheap price. I would’ve imagined it should cost at least a couple million… :rofl:

Mine is available for the highest bidder :slight_smile:

Yours are pretty much worthless because no one here will pay even a penny for that. Why put yourself through such shame? :rofl:

You’re not a match!
