Where San Francisco sellers are moving in 2022

Redfin published an interesting (if not a little bit suspect) list of where San Francisco home sellers are moving in 2022. The real headline should probably be more about where they have searched rather than where they actually end up going, because frankly, some of the cities on this list seem like a stretch. In any event, we will do a quick review of this list of locations – they may spell opportunity for saavy buyers or investors.

Home Buyer Sentiment 11 Year Low

Home Buyer Sentiment At 11 Year Low

The last time home buyer sentiment was this low it was 2011. Things were NOT good in 2011. We were still right in the middle of the last real estate downturn and huge inventories.
