Sales out-number listings! Again!

Are you having a hard time finding your dream home?  Does it seem like the few that are listed vanish into thin air (or where-ever)?  Perhaps the numbers below can help  us understand why.

How do you compete in today’s market place?  Offers are coming in over asking price, and often higher than the appraisal will support.  Investors are grabbing up homes.  People with cash pulled from nonperforming stocks or other investments are buying.  How does today’s home owner compete with this?

Talk to your Realtor®.  He or she should be able to write offers that are strong.  If you have recently submitted offers that are not being accepted what is the reason?  At Encore Real Estate Services (Encore RES) we know how to get the job done.

In fact, with over 400 agents belonging to the Sutter-Yuba Association of Realtors® and more than 200 non-Realtor® agents in the area, we were responsible for 3 of the 41 closings this week.  If you would like to be among the successful, contact us today.  Call 530 315-2808; email; click on or
