As you've probably been reading and hearing, the real estate market has "shifted." In the past few months, we've seen the market change from a sellers' market towards a buyers' market. Home prices climbed very high last spring, and sellers were receiving multiple offers. But then, things "shifted." In September, we saw the market times for houses on the market climb, and the prices also started to go down. And for us, this has meant fewer listings and sales. In September, we closed a short sale property near the beach, and this month, we just closed a property in Cardiff with a beautiful ocean view. We have other properties in escrow waiting to close, and we are starting to get a few more listings. It's an interesting time! We did do a really fun thing in the business last month. One of our agents, Dave Hyman, played "Jimmy the Greek" in a production of Guys and Dolls at the Star Theatre in Oceanside. We dressed for the occasion, and went out to dinner as a group before attending the performance.
