Realtor.com reports that SAN JOSE, CA ranks #1 where Home Prices have fallen the most, in their findings, dated May 20, 2019. Most recently, the real estate market has experenced a shortage of available homes for sale to balance the demand of Buyer’s needs. Combined with super low interest rates, the results were that the Bay Area housing sales prices escalated at record-breaking speed from years 2011-2018. This year has delivered a “cooling-off” phase, in some areas, such as San Jose, CA as prices have softened and inventory has increased.
Houses priced right are still selling quickly, and some “over-asking.” The market is relatively balanced, and favorable for both Buyers and Sellers. The mortgage interest rates are low and there are more homes to choose from.

This is particularly prevalent on sites like Craigslist where unsuspecting renters and home buyers go looking for great deals and ideal properties.
