Ortega Waterfront in High Demand-Market Heating Up!

sold_sign_houseOver the past four weeks, five Ortega Waterfront Homes have been put under contract. Four of them had been on the market for a long time (over a year). The fifth one is a private sale (one of the agents in our office was working with a waterfront buyer and knew of someone who was willing to sell). She contacted the person, got permission to show the house and, voila, a deal was made!

All of these sales are active contingent which means that there’s something left to do before the status gets changed to pending. This could be home inspections or financing approval.

All five transactions had either Prudential Network Realty as the listing agent or the selling agent.

If you’ve been thinking of buying Ortega waterfront, you might want to hurry, looks like the inventory is coming down!
