Looking back over the 2021 real estate market is mind boggling. From mid-March when we were told to “shelter-in-place” to the rapid acceleration of the market in May and continuing throughout the remainder of the year we experienced a ride we never saw coming.
Frantic Buyers looked for properties in areas where they never dreamed of living before because of the transition to virtuality. With working from home becoming the norm, new possibilities opened, and Buyers rushed to snatch up more rural or country homes. The Wine Country was a first choice for many residents of Silicon Valley, San Francisco, the East Bay, and the Peninsula.
Predictions nationally see real estate prices appreciating only 5.7% in 2022 as opposed to the 15% appreciation of this past year, but the Wine Country could well be an exception. The lack of inventory and the lure of the country keeps calling, making North Bay prices continue to look inviting and worth the prospective battle to win.

Check out our website for all that we offer at www.Sunpacificmortgage.com or Call Sun Pacific Mortgage at 707-523-2099 to examine the private money loan programs available for hard-to-fund properties or Borrowers. With 34 years of experience behind us, we have seen it all and have found ways of helping thousands of our clients find the mortgage program that works for them.
Lately, one of our more requested loans is for a Bridge Loan, allowing the Seller/Buyer to purchase the new property before selling their present home. In the tight market we face today, contingency offers are less likely to be considered by Sellers. This is a short-term solution for Buyers.
