Leverage: Sellers Still Have it, and Here's Why


Although the Walnut Creek, Brentwood and Discovery Bay areas are seeing a bit of a shift in the frenzied housing market, most homeowners still possess an edge in the housing market – also known as “leverage” should they decide to list their homes.


Here’s why.


Buyers are really in search of three things:


1. They want to secure the home of their dreams with the best offer.

2. They want to secure the home of their dreams before mortgage rates rise higher

3. They want to secure the home of their dreams before home prices climb higher.


These three buyer needs give Sellers an amazing advantage—also known as leverage—when they place their house on the market.
