Here's what I've noticed lately in the market: The homes that are selling are not only the ones attractively priced (that's an absolute given), but the ones that stand out in terms of condition, curb appeal and location. Most homes that are selling are staged to show their best. If you're looking at 10 different 2700 sf homes in San Ramon, chances are 1 or 2 of them will appeal to lots of buyers, a few more will appeal to a couple of buyers at most (a home that is otherwise perfect but backs up to a busy street - that will kill the deal for most buyers in this market, but not necessarily all), and the rest will sit while buyers who lose out on the 1-2 top homes wait for more similar ones to come on the market.
