Happy 4th of July. It is time to party and BBQ with family and friends. I hope everyone can party responsibly as we celebrate the nation’s birthday. I did see a car flipped over on the 405. I really wish that everyone can exercise a little bit more patience and kindness this 4th of July weekend. I did an open house in West Hills this weekend. The response was overwhelming. The lack of inventory in Los Angeles is really making it tough for buyers. Of course, this will benefit sellers greatly. I don’t see this trend in the housing market changing for the second half of 2017. Buyers should write the best offers they can if they really want a home.
