How’s the market? How many times have you asked a Realtor that question? Probably more times than you can remember, right?
As a local San Luis Obispo Realtor I get asked that question more than 50 times a week. What most people don’t realize is how broad that question is and that we, Realtors, can’t properly give you the educated answer unless you tell us more about what you mean by that. Do you mean the California state market, the regional Central Coast market, the San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara county markets, the Pismo Beach market, or how’s the market for your specific property that you are looking to sell?
So next time you get to that place where you’re about to drop my favorite line, think to yourself what is it that you really want to know, so that I can give you what it is you really want to know. My goal is always to help you be informed, educated, and confident in your decision to buy, sell, or hold onto your current home or investment property.
If you are still curious about how the market is, here are some stats from March 2016 here in the city of San Luis Obispo for Single Family Homes.

THE WRAP UP
Homes sold faster and at higher prices despite there being more inventory for sale last month here in the city San Luis Obispo. All signs are pointing to a seller’s market and a highly competitive environment for buyers.
Interest rates remain at historical lows (under 4%) so if this is the right time for you and your family to look at buying a home make sure you are prepared by having your loan qualification and closing funds in place and ready to go.
