After moving to Southern California in the fall of 2011 and renting a place to live, my husband and I decided in January 2012 to begin the process of
looking for a home to purchase. We didn’t feel a big rush or pressure to make a quick purchase as the home market had been soft for some time and we
were still in a buyers’ market – or so we thought! We found a place we liked and after multiple showings decided to purchase the property. Imagine our
surprise when at the last minute we lost the property to another bid. In fact, two other bids came in on this property and it sold for full asking price.
We quickly realized that real estate in desired areas such as ours was making the turn – and there was no looking back.
