It depends on your need to move. If you are being relocated, then you really have no choice. But by the sounds of your description, your home sounds very desirable and it should not matter when you list your home for sale. As you probably know, Lamorinda is a very desirable area to live in. With the state's top rated school district and close proximity to everything, demand is still strong in the area. I have been selling brand new homes in Lafayette the last year and half (prices in the $2.5M and up) and haven't been affected by this "slow down." If your property is priced well and shows well (which I am sure it does), then you should have no problem selling it, no matter what is going on in the surrounding areas. In addition to the new homes in Lafayette, we sold three new homes in Orinda off of Moraga Way a few years back and had little difficulty selling those. We have another home coming on in April and have had numerous inquiries from relocation agents as well as people sitting and waiting for that perfect home to come on the market. New(er) construction, great schools, and neighborhoods sell, no matter what is going on the market. Yes, you have buyers that sit and wait, but you also have buyers that know what they want and will buy on the whim, if it meets there needs.
If you would like me to do a CMA to let you know what I think your home is worth, feel free to contact me.
Happy New Year!
