The second rule of real estate after Location: Timing. Buyers and Sellers need to understand the time trends in the market. 

Sellers need to be aware of how long it might take to sell their home. Many variables affect this time, not the least of which is list price.

For the buyers, it is important to understand how fast you have to move – not just in responding to a home you like, but in how frequently you need to check the market and how quickly you need to make arrangements to view the home. 

The majority of Alviso homes have been selling in two weeks or less, down from 4 weeks or less a year ago, indicating strong demand.

Understanding Price is imperative both form the Seller’s and Buyer’s perspectives.

For the seller, pricing too high can be disastrous. Buyers will focus their attention on lower-priced listings first. So can pricing so low that buyers wonder what is wrong with the property.

Much the current Silicon Valley Market is deliberately priced low to spark interest, often resulting in multiple offers driving the price up as evidenced by the ratios over 100%. 

The graph presented here shows that bidding wars are prevalent in Alviso in the highest price points of newer homes adjacent to North San Jose.
