Cutting Through the B.S. of Real Estate
Practical Tips for Buyers and Sellers of Today’s Market
Buyers and sellers alike are placing a lot of belief, optimism and capital into the City’s real estate market. This makes sense of course. San Francisco is at the heart of the technology and data-driven economy with precious little developable land, a diverse population, mild climate, proximity to Asia and Latin America, access to nature, wine, world-class universities and much more.
And we are a market flush with cash — tech-derived, international or borrowed thanks to low mortgage interest rates. All of this wealth is being funneled into our neighborhoods. Demand continues to far exceed supply but it could be worse. Compared to other international cities San Francisco properties are still only priced a third or at half of a Paris, London, New York or Hong Kong.
Buyers and sellers regularly ask me and my partner Jonathan about how they can make the most out of this market. Our experiences representing both buyers and sellers has given us some perspective that may help you.
