Doug Reynolds, a Sacramento Area Realtor, discusses the latest market stats for Sacramento.
This month Doug focuses on the reason why the September stats are misleading and not reflective of the current October/November Sacramento Real Estate Market. The local market is slowing down and he also talks about the best strategies for sellers and buyers in the current Market. Since the market is heading into the normal Fall/Winter slow down, there's a few things both sellers and buyers can (and Need to) do in order to take advantage of the market.
Just Sold 10/3/14 in Midtown/New Era Park!!! Congratulations to my long time friend Rob and Mary Ann for getting their first home. This is a beautiful craftsman on a full size lot. Tons of space for family expansion in the future :).
óIn September 2014, the median price increased from $270,000 to $275,000. The median is 7.8% higher than one year ago.
óThe available housing inventory has been slowly increasing each month and is up to 2.5 months. I expect to see that number slowly increase more as we continue through the fall/winter. A “normal” or “balanced market” is around 4 months.
óThe homes that are priced right, show well and have a high quality marketing plan are still getting sold fairly quick. However, the properties that are over priced are sitting with little activity until the list price is in line with the true market value. The overpriced properties are having price reductions to try and get more attention. The current market is the most “normal/balanced” market we have seen in the Sacramento area in over 10 years.
óHigh Demand and Low Supply/Inventory had driven the market prices up in 2013. The market is finally at a balance and seller’s power of the past 2 years is now equal with the buyers due to the increased inventory of homes for sale.
