You may be enjoying curiously looking at real estate websites to get a handle on the market. During your investigation, you came across this house on Trulia.com and inquired as to its availability. That of course is one of the reasons that Trulia.com posts this information â€“ to urge questions from those who see the posts.
This is also a classic example of why you need the help of a Realtor if you are serious about buying a home â€“ especially in this fast moving market in which inventory is very limited and buyer interest is strong. By the time you find a house posted for sale on Trulia.com â€“ and many other websites â€“ and you inquire about it, the house will likely be Pending. There are some websites which have more up-to-date information but I will refrain from naming them in this forum out or respect to our host.
Bottom lineâ€¦if you are a serious buyer or you think that you will soon be a serious buyer you owe it to yourself to associate with a local Realtor who can bring houses to your attention that meet your criteria before everyone else has already seen them and submitted offers. Your Realtor will do much more than that. Find your Realtor, sit down with your Realtor and have an in-depth conversation about how the process works.
The Livermore market is moving very fast, as inventory supplies are exceptionally low.. The most desireable and well-priced homes go pending within a few days of coming on the market, many with multiple Offers. This partcular one went pending within 10 days. Aligning yourself with a buyer's agent who will keep you informed with the latest available properties and the current buying climate, may help you succeed in this highly competitive market.
