Ardenwood has it's fair share of inventory right now and between the prices of $545k-$750k there are only 4 pendings in the entire 94555 zip code, so if you are selling a house I would wait until March/April. The trends are easy to see if you keep in constant touch with a realtor. Good luck.

If youa re going to put a house on the market in the first quarter, do it NOW! Buyers who were on hiatus over the holidays begin lokoing now and that momentum grows moving into the summer post school season buying time. Thing pull back through February and pick up again in March. If you have a good house and a non short sale one at that. Your golden either way.
Typically January and February are very slow months, and this year is likely to be no different, especially since interest rates are bumping up a bit. But...in March BOTH inventory (homes for sale) and buyers tend to increase quite a bit.
My suggestion...interview agents now, both for CMA (to see what your home is approximately 'worth') and what things need to be done to make your home stand out when you do put it on the market. I know it's crazy, but timing can be everything...list the first week in March and it can sell in a flash, list the last week in March and there's usually lots of competition, and it can linger. Buyers tend to start looking in March so they can move in June, get settled before the start of the next school year.
Good luck, and please check out my webpage http://www.sidewalkhomes.com and contact me if you need any assistance.
