Can you believe we are coming near the end of 2022? What a year it has been in terms of market shifts and mortgage rates, yet owning a home is still the greatest asset most people will have and a goal most people want to achieve.
With the state of the housing market quickly changing I can see how confusing it can be if you are a seller or buyer trying to decide if NOW is the right time to buy or sell. I am here to let you know what’s happening in the real estate market here in the Oakland Berkeley East Bay Area, so that you can make the best decision when it comes to probably one of your largest assets … your home!
