CALIFORNIA IS NOT SILICON VALLEY

The Market Statistics fiasco

I’m continually answering client’s questions about mass media, or on line reports (Case Schiller etc) which claim to give “information” about the California Real Estate Market and which contradict the information I give them.

Here’s the reality:

REAL ESTATE IS LOCAL

Data covering the whole of California is totally useless to anyone considering Buying or Selling property in Silicon Valley.

To get useful information about a specific area why not go to a source which deals ONLY with that area, and has ACCURATE and RELEVANT information on it.

A competent and tech savvy Realtor has direct access to all relevant data bases and can easily provide accurate and current data for individual homes, neighborhoods, Cities, and Counties within minutes, at  no cost to a Client.

Much of this data is either not available to the general public, or costs inordinate time and money to an individual.
