Sound Off: What are the pros and cons of waiting to make a major real estate transaction at the moment?

A: The volatility of the market and unknown length of this crisis has led to apprehension to invest in local real estate. However these factors have created an unexpected opportunity. For buyers in the market, there now exists a unique and possibly short-lived window to put forth an offer with terms that a seller may not have considered just a few short weeks ago, and likely will not again once we have emerged from this crisis. Real estate professionals across the Bay Area like our team at 181 Fremont are open and welcoming of the opportunity that this creates for buyers. Unlike the 2008 financial crash, as the virus is contained, we suspect the recovery will be swift and San Francisco real estate will again be perceived as a safe and stable place to invest.

Compounded by increased construction costs and a shortage in the new construction pipeline, San Francisco real estate will continue to be a very attractive investment option. Tom Gasbarre, 181 Fremont Residences, 415-254-8389, tom@181residences.com . A: Pro: The interest rates are very low & many sellers are pricing at a price they want, and many are accepting contingencies. Run the numbers. Con: Is this your dream home? Can you picture spending 10 years or more there? The answer s/b yes. Is your income source essential or stable? The answer should be yes. Is your lender tightening their lending requirements? Double check with your lender. Pro: Do you need to right-size? Do you need a smaller home, a larger home, or are you wanting to move outside...
