SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Olivia Hsu Decker of Decker Bullock Sotheby’s International Realty was featured in the Real Estate section of San Francisco Business Times, in an article titled "Clients of Olivia Hsu Decker have a different view of the Bay."
An excerpt from the interview is below:
How is your luxury homes market looking right now? I sell the most homes in Belvedere and Tiburon, where the sales continue to be strong. Last month, a newly built spec home sold in one week for $13 million, with a $13.5 million full-price backup offer. The month before that, I sold a $4 million teardown home in Belvedere. I thought both were overpriced, but they sold quickly.
What do you tell clients who are nervous about a Bay Area downturn? I tell them we are very blessed in the Bay Area because this is one of the most desirable places to live in the world. We have local buyers from our tech industry, which will always be here. We also have a steady stream of buyers from outside the U.S. Last year, I had $71 million in sales to international buyers.
What trends are you seeing in terms of what clients are looking for in luxury homes? Today’s luxury buyers prefer newly built contemporary homes with the latest technology. They want to control and monitor their home systems via smart phone anywhere in the world. They also like bright, light and airy open floor plans and interior colors in white and various shades of grey.
