Our housing market sucks. NOT!

Happy news here.

Someone I know, who hates when I talk about him and would be even less thrilled if I blogged about him, just bought and sold houses. He and his family shall remain anonymous in this post.

Don't listen to those people who say it's a terrible time to buy or sell. This family proved them wrong in the highly competitive Bay Area housing market.

They first bought a larger house in the neighborhood they currently live. Then they listed theirs. They house they bought is dated but not unlivable. And the yard is incredible. In the five years' they'd been in their current house they'd remodeled the kitchen and one of the two baths. They thought it'd sell fast because it's a small house in great shape and affordable by Bay Area standards.

Sure enough, they had one offer before it went on the MLS and two after. It ultimately sold for over the asking price.

Email me if you want the name of their agent extraordinaire. He is their new BFF.

I'm so happy for "that guy!" I can't believe there is a real estate agent out there who actually knows how to earn their money.
