“The share selling above list price was almost three times the trough in January 2008 and represented more than one-fifth of total sales.”Many markets in the western part of the country and around major cities are experiencing higher shares of homes selling above list price.
“San Francisco had the largest share of homes—76 percent—that sold for at least the list price, and Seattle and Los Angeles followed with 63 and 51 percent, respectively. Miami had the lowest share—16 percent—of homes selling at or above the list price.”Increased demand during the spring and summer months, the traditionally busier seasons for real estate, will no doubt influence how many homes continue to sell over list price. This should not be seen by sellers as permission to overprice their homes, though. Buyers are becoming more and more educated, especially those who have been searching for their dream homes for a while now while waiting for new inventory to come to market. Realtor.com gives this advice:
“Aim to price your property at or just slightly below the going rate. Today’s buyers are highly informed, so if they sense they’re getting a deal, they’re likely to bid up a property that’s slightly underpriced, especially in areas with low inventory.”
Bottom LineIn Napa without a large wave of new listings coming to market, buyers will continue competing with each other for the homes that are available. If you are thinking of selling your home, now may be the time to do so before more competition comes this spring. Let’s get together to determine the demand for your house in our Napa Valley.

Senior Tennis in Napa
The Napa Country Air must be particular healthy. Here at the Napa Valley College is a whole group of people in their eighties still playing tennis. The oldest person is 88 and he still plays at least three times weekly (lloyd Fox.)Even more reasons to move to Napa.
Christine was very professional not only did I find a wonderful broker I feel I made a life time friend. I had bids soon after my open house and before I new it I was in escrow. Christine was always easy to reach when I had questions and if she did not know the answer she would find out and get back to me in a timely manner. Once my car was not working and there were papers that needed signing and she went above and beyond by driving me herself. Now she is helping me to buy a home and she has my best interest at heart. I would recommend Christine as a really good professional and knowledgeable real estate broker.
Why would be Napa the perfect place to live? “For many reasons” say our local tennis players. ” In Napa you find people everywhere to play with in many different levels and ages. Each facility has clubs and people playing together for many years.” We have great tennis instructors. Rick Hannover and Rebecca Thompson have been teaching here for decades. At the Napa Valley College Rebecca Thompson, PhD, is been teaching college students in any age since 1995. Rick Hannover used to teach at the Napa Valley Country Club and is now teaching at any court her in Napa. No wonder we have such a strong “Tennis Society.”

Napa Valley Country Club has a rich history dating back to its founding in 1915. The private club has nine tennis courts, eight of which are lighted, along with two Har-Tru ClayTech courts.
The 2013 USTA Pro Circuit season will deliver nearly $3 million in prize money and award the valuable ATP and WTA Tour ranking points that players need to ascend to the next level. There are only 15 events in the Challenger series throughout the country.
This Series is the largest developmental tennis circuit in the world.
