Thanks for visiting the Dave's Open House!
We know that finding a home, much less getting an offer accepted, is a challenge in our persistently low inventory environment. For this reason, we have provided a variety of resources below for your use. Please be aware that we do not work for the seller of the open house. We work for the buyer only.
Eventually, you will choose a buyer agent work with - naturally, we hope that you choose us to help you find a home and then get your offer accepted. But even if you don't use us - feel free to use all the resources on the site and to reach out to ask questions (seriously, the only thing we three agents know about is real estate, and it feels good to have our expertise used).
If you would like similar reports to the ones linked below built custom for you - an email from you specifying which neighborhood(s) you are most interested in is all that is necessary to get a permalink built for you.
The video below is Dave's take on where home prices are headed and more importantly WHEN they will get there - want to know about the timing on the bottom of the market? It's in the video. He's pretty smart about this stuff and we flatter him by allowing him to put videos on this landing page.
UPDATE: Rates remain unchanged in December and the Fed has hinted at 3 rate reductions in 2024. This will collapse the spread between the 10-year Treasury bond and the 30 year fixed mortage which will lower interest rates in excess of whatever reductions the Fed does. This likely puts us on the 5s in 2024 and the 4s in 2025. Everyone will be refinancing in 2026. Some of our lenders are even offering free refis if done within a few years.
Some people are interested in "price-reduced" listings. These are usually homes that were overpriced to start with and the seller is tired. We often go in with bids on these and win as the seller is more malleable and we present evidence to them that the home is worth what we are offering and no more.
PRICE REDUCED LISTINGS
Here are all the homes for sale in San Francisco. Want to refine the list (different city, specific price range, condo only or single family home only)? Hit the REFINE RESULTS key and change the homes to whatever criteria you want.
Better yet, become a client (that means a phone call with us - that's about it) and we'll switch you to our Zenlist Platform. That platform has about 20% more listings than any of the national platforms - it even has COMING SOON homes (which are not on the internet yet) and the private listings (which will never be on the internet).
Here are some additional buyer resources for you - answers to many of the questions that buyers have:
