Century 21 Hometown Realty has been working with consumers on short sales and with banks to liquidate foreclosed properties for the past 5 years. It is with a deep sigh of relief that we see stability returning to the marketplace. With every foreclosure is a family that is being asked to move – something that breaks our hearts and the hearts of our community.

There are many economists that are theorizing what caused the turn around in housing, but in reality – it is likely a combination of many factors: low interest rates; changes in lending standards; population expansion, government policy, and so on. For us here on the central coast, we see inventory as the driving factor. As you can see from this next graph, there have been fewer sales.
