Way to find properties for your buyers.  I love the idea.  There certainly is low inventory all over the place.  Hopefully you will find something for these buyers.

I'm having the same problem in the Phoenix Metro Area Lottie, ready willing and able buyers and the lowest inventory in a decade. I hope you find a home for each and every buyer.

Great way to find listings for buyers!  I'll give some thought to the Los Gatos needs.  I might be able to help with that one.

Jane, interestingly, I received an email from someone who read this post. He/she told me about a house that's coming on the market this week. Nice that they responded; I'm checking out the house, you can believe.

It sure would be nice if we could have a balanced market for a while, wouldn't it Nancy? Best of luck to you and your clients in Phoenix.

Roger, sooner or later there will be something for all the buyers--just wish those elusive houses would make their appearance SOON!

Bryan, if you keep my Los Gatos needs in mind, it would be AWESOME! A single-story townhouse might work, too. Rinconada would be perfect. Let me know how I can help you!

Lottie - What a great way to let sellers know that the market is hot and you need homes to sell.  I hope you get a lot of calls!

Good morning, Laura -- I did get one email as a result of this post. I also sent out an emailer to about 100 people who get the electronic version of my newsletter; 2 people have replied. Next week it will go out to about 500 with my printed newsletter. It can't hurt, and who knows???
