WHAT THIS MEANS FOR GOLD COAST REAL ESTATE BUYERS

It’s still a buyer’s market, but you don’t have nearly the choices that you had a year ago. You won’t be able to negotiate as much since there aren’t as many sellers competing against each other.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR GOLD COAST REAL ESTATE SELLERS

Given that the market appears to be forming a bottom, I don’t recommend selling unless
1. you really need to
or
2. you want to move up to a more expensive home (It’s probably come down more in value in the past few years than your current home.) As always, if your home is priced right when it goes on market, it will sell in a reasonable amount of time.
