In our recent episode of Capstone Conversation, we had the pleasure of discussing the real estate market in the greater East Bay with David Schubb from Contra Costa and Edwin Legaspi representing Northern Solano County. With their extensive experience in the industry, they provided valuable insights into the current state and future trajectory of the market.

David Schubb, a seasoned veteran in real estate, shared his perspective on the evolving dynamics of the market. He emphasized the challenge posed by the shortage of inventory, coupled with high demand for housing. Fluctuating interest rates further impact affordability and competition among buyers.

Echoing these sentiments, Edwin Legaspi highlighted the critical role of inventory in shaping market trends. He emphasized the need for adaptability in response to even minor fluctuations in interest rates, which significantly influence buyer behavior.

Affordability emerged as a central concern, with many Californians facing obstacles in purchasing single-family homes. Complexities in local policies regarding rent stabilization and eviction add further challenges for both landlords and tenants.

Despite these hurdles, there is optimism for the future. Efforts to address issues such as capital gains tax exemptions and property tax reforms offer hope for unlocking inventory and easing affordability constraints.

In conclusion, the insights shared by David Schubb and Edwin Legaspi shed light on the multifaceted factors influencing the real estate landscape in the greater East Bay. As stakeholders navigate these challenges and opportunities, staying informed and adaptable will be crucial for success in this dynamic market.
