Antioch, California (EastBayDaily) — Contra Costa County continues to be a top relocation destination in the region despite the recent economic downturn—this is indicated by its continuing rise in population, which has made it the ninth most populous county in California for several years now. According to seasoned Contra Costa County Realtor Chris Stuart, who’s also the founder of real estate firm Buyer’s Broker, Contra Costa and neighboring Alameda County remain popular among homebuyers because of their proximity to San Francisco and the Silicon Valley, as well as their excellent school systems and high quality of life.
“What’s more,” says Stuart, “home prices in both Contra Costa and Alameda counties are currently exhibiting a downward trend, making now an excellent time to invest in real estate here. Buyers looking for bargains will also want to look into the market for Contra Costa County short sales and foreclosures.”
According to Clear Capital’s most recent Home Data Indexâ¢ (HDI) Market Report, the home prices in Contra Costa County are expected to decline even further in 2011. The report forecasts a double-digit percentage decrease by the end of the year.
Stuart and her team at Buyer’s Broker are exclusive buyer’s brokers and agents, having represented only homebuyers since the firm was founded in 1986. “Our focus is completely on homebuyer representation,” says Stuart, “we don’t market properties or communities.
