Homes in Pleasanton are selling for significantly more than their list price and in record time.
Is this sustainable? One local real estate expert says yes.
“Every time I think there’s going to be a little bit of a break, you hear more stories of crazy multiple offers,” said Pleasanton Realtor Jennifer Branchini, the 2021 treasurer for the California Association of Realtors. “Unless we get a ton of inventory, the fierce competition is going to persist for a while longer.”
