Key reasons why 2016 is a good time to buy a home -
 Key economic indicators and changes to the mortgage process could make 2016 a promising year to become a homeowner. Firstly, rental rates are continuing to rise, and there are no signs that increases will stop in 2016. Secondly, interest rates are still historically very low. Thirdly, new mortgage terms make the process clearer for the purchaser, which could be of great benefit to first-time buyers.


Coldwell Banker Real Estate Releases Most Extensive Home Listing Report In U.S., Ranking Average Home Price In 2,700 Markets -  
Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC, the original Silicon Valley real estate startup founded in 1906, released its annual HLR, revealing that half (50) of the top 100 most expensive markets in the United States are in California, with Newport Beach topping the list where the average listing price of a four-bedroom, two-bathroom home is$2,291,764.


'It's starting to feel a little bit like 2007': Why Oakland risks missing out on the boom - 
Oakland is seeing some of the strongest market conditions in years, with residential rents climbing to the fifth-highest in the U.S. and its office vacancy rate shrinking to about 5.4 percent. But some longtime Bay Area developers have seen this momentum in previous cycles, and they're anxious that the party will end before the city adds much-needed housing and office for more jobs.


Milpitas council to review future housing, retail near Great Mall - 
Up for review will be changes to three projects: the McCandless Drive proposal for 83,842 square feet of retail, a hotel with 175 rooms and a 423-residential unit building; a Centre Pointe Drive proposal for 241 units; and a Houret Drive proposal for 114 condominiums along Houret Drive and Houret Court.


Quicken Loans: Perception Gap Between Homeowner and Appraiser Valuation Narrows Slightly - 
The difference between what homeowners perceived their homes to be worth and what appraisers valued them decreased slightly in October, Quicken Loans reported. Average appraised values in October were 1.98 percent lower than what homeowners estimated according to the national Home Price Perception Index (HPPI). This is the second month the gap between appraiser opinions and homeowner expectations narrowed, although October marks the ninth consecutive month owners overestimated their home’s value.
