Quick Recap: Average days on market are shrinking, and multiple offers are becoming more common for the million to 2 million dollar range homes. Bay area and Tahoe agents are talking about a slump in their sales, whereas Pebble Beach and Carmel show no signs of slowing down. Remember all real estate markets sale trends are unique, never base buying decisions on national trends, and get the facts from an real estate market expert!
