Yes, we are currently in a seller's market. This is the 'definition' of a sellers market: There is less than a three-month supply of homes for sale. The market is tight. This puts the seller in a better negotiating position, making it a great time to sell.

You'll see multiple offers above asking and home selling quickly in this type of market.

Hi Swanny,

I just had a foreign buyer with only an F1 Visa. I dealt with a lot of loan agents to try and find one who could make a deal work. I kept hearing no's until I talked with Richard at the Loan Story.
(Richard@theloanstory.com).

As to your question on the 1 BR's, I really recommend you get an agent. We can tell you not just the amount something sold for but also the factors that influenced the price such as unit location. We can also make sure we are talking about the same units (For example, 255 Rengstorff has one bedrooms of very different square footage and the price between these two size units is also very different).

Good luck!

It is difficult to give a good answer to a short question. Marcy has given you raw data. More raw data for recent Mountain View home sales can be viewed at
http://julianalee.com/mountain-view/mountain-view-home-sales.htm

You really do want to work with a real estate agent to understand and make the best purchase. Mountain View home prices have been rising.
http://julianalee.com/mountain-view/mountain-view-statistics.htm

Google has been hiring affecting rental prices and sales prices. There are environmental issues which you should understand before making a purchase.

City $3.30 per $1000, paid 50/50
County $1.10 per $1,000 paid by seller

Two sites for information:

Besides expected expenses there are often questions about things such as fences not being on the property line. See http://julianalee.com/reinfo/property-ownership.htm

Paz Bar-am answered:
As most people say the most important in Real property is Location, Location, and Location. A home is defined by four major categories. The first category is the location, which city or neighborhood the house is located in and on what terrains. The second is how much funding a buyer is looking to put into the purchase of the home. The third is lot size. The fourth is the home specific features which include the interior, # bed, # bathes, home size, etc. The fist three are not changeable by the new owner but the fourth option is changeable. Which means that you can buy a house in good school district, on a smaller lot somewhat dated and by a method of compromising you can find a house in that location that will be affordable and in the future with some investment you can change it to the house of your dreams.
Let me know what you think,
Paz

Matt,
Currently there are no 10+ unit apartment building listed on MLS. There are 2 on Loopnet.com which is a commercial real estate site. Unfortunately only have data for 2 is not really going to give you a lot of information on a range. You might do better looking at sold GRM's to get the info you are looking for.

Good evening Brian,
You made a wise decision, you bought for the right reason and you are set for the long term on your purchase. If the fundamental reason(s) that you've bought have chaged, diferent story. But as Mr. Iverson said, making a move now will only cost you money that you don't need to spend. And even when your mortgage resets in 2013, you will likely be locked into a similar rate then for a year as you are today (it's a little known secret how ARM mortgages are priced, and I am happy to share with you that secret. But here's a hint: the investor is betting on the fact that the rate at adjustmet will be the same as it was at commencement).
And regarding a 30-year fixed mortgage, it's kinda like buying Whole Life versus Term insurance: you"ll pay a lot more for it if very long-term security is what you need, but Term is likely more appropriate.
Mounain View is a great city with the best values in the Bay Area, and I echo again Iverson mentions about Mountain View: 1. city is well run, downtown is transformed, parks are the cleanest that I've seen on a consistent basis, schools are improving consistently, city knows how to lure the right business', etc. I lived there for ten years before moving to Palo Alto, and I have the fondest memories of living in Mountain View.
Kindest regards,
Eric
