We’re ecstatic to announce that longtime Aptos native, Jason Flynn, is joining the EF Homes team as Director of Sales / Realtor. His extensive experience in the areas of both real estate sales and real estate management, he’ll be a great addition to the team as we create more services, in more areas, to help more clients.


And as we turn to the Market Watch part of the show, Jason has jumped into the stats between him and Erick, a lot is shared in this edition. Specifically, that 6-month wait for what happens over the hill in Silicon Valley to hit our Santa Cruz County market has now started. Specifically, we’re seeing more competition for the relatively few homes that are on the market. Not as competitive as we saw in early 2022, but there are still far more buyers in the market than homes available to buy. 


With that said, sellers, you’ll want to pay attention as our Ready to Sell program that we’ve talked a lot about lately, is your way to achieve that move in-ready status. Essentially, hand us the keys, we take care of contractors that might do a new roof, new landscaping or even kitchen & bath updates…all the billing is taken care of through escrow, no checks to be written. 


We hope you enjoyed this edition of Market Watch. Have you checked out our library of resources, including our READY TO Sell program allowing 0% financing for 12 months to fix up bathrooms, your roof, landscaping and so much more so you can sell your home at top value. Plus, our Mortgage & Home Value Calculators will help you crunch your numbers.


Don’t forget to sign up for our e-newsletter so you don’t miss out on all our news, trends and market information to keep you in the know too as it’s released each week.


Thank you for letting us be your real estate resource!
