And Then There Was One….Low Inventory in 360 South Bay

The lack of new listings continues to be a big problem for buyers in 360 and Fusion. As of February 15th there is only one home for sale in 360 and one in Fusion. While there are some upcoming listings we’re aware of, it’s fairly unbelievable that more owners don’t want to sell in such a favorable market. Prices are at an all time high due to the limited number of homes and the continual demand for homes in these gated communities.

Until more homes become available on the market it’s going to remain a very tough market for home buyers.
