    Ranch home in Burlingame for which my clients wrote an offer. The Open House we attended had a LOT of interested people. Sellers received a total of 8 offers, and the terms went way above expectations, even though there were conditional items for the home. Shows there's still a huge lack of inventory in some neighborhoods, like Mills Estates! #MillsEstates #Burlingame #Peninsula #SanMateoCounty #SanFranciscoBayArea #hothome
