Ripon/Manteca homes are in demand and prices are on the rise. It's very common to see multiple offer situations, and homes sell at or over asking price. Now is the time!

Home prices are on the rise most everywhere. Many homes have gone up north of $30,000, Ripon and Manteca areas are in demand especially with easy freeway access. While interest rates remain low, and inventory levels down, we can expect prices to continue going up especially in the Ripon/Manteca areas.

Homes are going up fast, and sometimes the bid method is used. Im most cases they sell at over the asking price If you offer about 30% of what you would have for the same home in Sept-2012you stand a chance. You can email me at and we can set a time to chat. Now is not the time to wait really Molly Mooney

There are different ways to purchase a home on some its a bid sytem ie: a hud home On some it the typical offer and counter offer system and yes prices are going up all over the state. In most cases ona straight sale it goes over the asking price, and we are in a sellers market inventory is low I can send you a market trend if you supply me with the area email me at

Hi Yesenia,

We are experiencing a shortage of inventory in most cities and especially if the areas that are highly desired. When these factors are in play, this creates competition and buyers are willing to pay more. When people are paying more seller are able to list properties at higher prices.

I have noticed between 5-15 offers on any given property... even on short sales!

I wish you luck with your home search!

Homes that are desirable recieve multiple offers and in almost every instance over asking price. The reason for this is, supply is very low especially in Ripon and demand is very high. Be prepared to compete and adjust you max price mentally when you're looking. There are several caveats to purchasing a home in today's market. So make sure you take your time and select a credentialed Realtor or Better yet Broker.

Hi girlie,
We are dealing with a sellers market right now and unfortunately for every one home there are anywhere from 5-15 buyers. Depending on how long the home has been sitting on the market and rather you are asking for closing cost or not will your agent should be abole to tell you what is a good idea to submit. I definetly recomend that you take into consideration that there arent very many homes out there right now in comparison to buyers which means you will be competeing according to price. good luck on your home purchase and if you need any further help feel free to call me

Hi Yesenia.

Yes prices have risen a little. Just to give you an example. At the beginning of summer average price of a home in Modesto was $130,000. As of now median price is about $142,000.

To answer your question, If a property is listed as Active, Active Short Sale, they are available and accepting offers until it is listed as Pending or Pending Short LAppro. :0)

Houses in Ripon & Manteca are receiving multiple bids. The homes are selling at asking price and sometimes over asking price.
