Real Estate

Not always easy turning an offer into a contract

By From page C3 | September 07, 2012

Finding the right home in El Dorado County isn’t getting easier as the number of available homes for sale continues to decline. As an example, if you were in the market to buy a three-bedroom, two-bath home priced less than $350,000, there are only 245 in the whole county to choose from. A year ago there was about three times that number. Let’s say that you only want to consider REOs or short sales. Well, there are 50 REOs and the number of short sale listings in that price range is less than 40.
