San Ramon & Danville California Foreclosure & Short Sale Trends

Foreclosure Update – Danville & San Ramon, CA

Foreclosure properties are sitting on the market longer in both Danville and San Ramon, California.

It’s no surprise that San Ramon has a more active foreclosure market than Danville. The lower price point in San Ramon is more attractive to investors. In fact, we saw several successful quick flips in San Ramon this past summer.

Weakening demand and high inventories of unsold homes could put renewed pressure on home prices in San Ramon and Danville this summer. Homebuyers anticipating further price drops may stay on the fence until several months of data accumulates showing more stabilization or increase of value with home prices – thus, missing out on a stronger bargaining position or their home of choice.
