Home Buyer Bidding War Rate Drops To Lowest Level Since January | The market has slowly begun to cool down, steadily becoming a more palatable environment for buyers: low mortgage rates, a higher supply of homes, and, finally, fewer bidding wars!

Welcome, Samantha!

We are so excited to have Sam join our team as a Listing Coordinator! Before joining us here at Strock, Sam was working in property management and oversaw upwards of 800 units! We don’t have quite that many listings going live at once (not yet anyway), but there is no doubt that she is a stellar multitasker. Sam, so glad to have you on the team!

Time stops at this mid-century modern stunner, located in the treetops of Day Valley. Not only are the classic lines reminiscent of simpler times, but they’re striking: soaring ceilings, huge windows, & a sunken living room rooted in place by a large fireplace. The refreshed kitchen opens up to the massive deck, which has been entirely rebuilt. You could host any size gathering on that deck alone, & why wouldn’t you? Everyone will want to enjoy glimpses of Day Valley from your perch on the hilltop.
3 Bedrooms | 2.5 Bathrooms | 1,820 SF | 1.28 Acres | $1,350,000
Live the sweet (and salty!) life on iconic West Cliff Drive. This is a rare property positioned right on the ocean: think unrivaled views of the surf and a playlist of the crashing waves on repeat. This cozy coastal cottage has plenty of space. The main house has 2 bedrooms, the backyard is huge, and a completely separate guest house is the perfect space for a killer office or rental! Plus, your front yard is pretty dang endless too – you know, with the Pacific Ocean and all.
2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom | 776 SF | $3,000,000
Location squared: this stellar duplex is twice the space in Midtown – need we say more? TWO, one-bedroom, one-bathroom units, a garage, and a separate studio with its own half bath mean the opportunities are endless. With all of those options, you may want to make this an investment property – but with that location, you may want to keep it all for yourself.
Total: 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms | 1,544 SF | $895,000

Thank you for your kind words. We loved working with you!

“Finding a home in a new area is stressful and challenging. The Strock Team was awesome in helping us find our Aptos home. They were super informative in their approach, helping us learn about each neighborhood and how it matched our lifestyle and budget. They brought a positive attitude to each step of the way and made it fun! We love our new home and are very thankful to Ben, Sarah, and the whole Strock Team!”
