4:38 am
cash.(maureen)while that sales price might be mind boggling to some, local realtors familiar with this market didn't bat an eye. they say that's the new reality..especia lly here in fremont's mission san jose neighborhood.it's small change for homes selling in mission san jose because of the schools , the reputation the schools have people like living in this area because it's close to 680 and 880, we can go to pleasanton we can go to south bayi would say that's part of the marketing conditon right now, there's limited supply people are looking at different avenues to get into a property and this may be the one avenue that they can presue because they've been bid out on so many other levels. so when they see this they don't see a condemned home they see maybe there will be less competition and maybe they can get in and not spend 400k over asking or 300k and 200k is a smaller price to pay especially if i have to compete with 30 people, maybe i only have to compete with 15. both agents saying they don't expect to see the cool down on this red hot market for some time to come.maureen kelly kron4 news.
