If the Economy only grew 1% Why did housing Prices rise 7.3% This week

We helped a client buy into Ardenwood community in Fremont 2 wks ago for $885k. Yesterday the same home sold at $950k+.

 

What I hear is that frustrated buyers from the Peninsula are moving their search to Fremont and applying the same aggressive tactic to buy here in Ardenwood that they used in Palo Alto, Menlo Park & Cupertino.

 

If you are thinking of selling my advice is to take advantage of this exuberant interest.
