General inventory is still well below historical norms. Over the past 15 years the average inventory of available homes in Alameda & Contra Costa counties has been around 4500, today we are sitting around 2000.

In 94707 area, there are a number of variables that greatly influence the appraised value of a SFR, besides the normal sf,br/ba,..... does it have a full view / partial view (this may add $10,000 - $25,000 to value. Comps are difficult, but you can find them. So many of the houses in this area are one-of a kind, no "tract" homes. ... more
