The simple economics of supply and demand continue to drive the Sacramento Market on an upward trend. For the foreseeable future, as long as interest rates remain low, the demand shall continue to be high. The “price sensitive sellers’ market” is still in effect. The properties that come on the market much higher than true market value and do not show well are sitting. But the homes that show well and come of the market at a good price are being sold within a few days, at or above list price with multiple offers.
