Investing in Pittsburg has the benefit of location for workers. The commute for people is eased a little due to the bart station and highway expansion to Railroad. Also the city has done and continues to complete major improvement projects to the city to enhance the value of properties. The Old Town/downtown area is a great example. There are also two new schools under construction as well.

In this market we are getting multiple offers. If it is a "Short Sale" it is up to the Seller to choose and offer. The agent will set a time to present offers to the seller. This time is set by the agent and the seller. If it is an REO the agent will collect offers and present to the bank at the time set by the bank. The Bank will choose the offer. If it is a regular sale the Agent and Seller will decide when
to present the offers. At which time the seller will choose the buyer.
