Published On April 30, 2018 | By Nicole Gruen | In the Neighborhood, Real Estate

For the third month in a row, the number of properties sold in Emeryville was down compared to the same month last year. Higher prices, tax changes and rising interest rates are all attributed to this slow start.

That said, there are currently 20 properties pending and 15 properties for sale in Emeryville. We expect to see a substantial increase in April.

Further insights or shopping for an agent?

If you are considering becoming a homeowner, one of your first steps should be getting pre-approval from a lender. Lenders generally require the last two years of tax returns. You might qualify for more than you expect. The sooner you know, the sooner you can strategize on how to become a homeowner and stop subsidizing your landlord’s mortgage. Building equity in your own house is a great investment.

About The Author

Born and raised in Germany, I moved to Emeryville (Hollis Corridor) in 2012 to escape the bad weather of San Francisco. Living on the greenbelt in one of Emeryville’s ‘painted ladies’, I take advantage of the walkability of the neighborhood and am known to stop dog owners to have lengthy petting sessions with their pooches. After a successful IT career and being burned by the stock market, I invested heavily in real estate. The transition to become a realtor seemed natural. I love helping buyers and sellers yield optimal results. Just as in IT, my goal is to stay in budget, scope and time and to leave my clients happy.
