Sacramento Real Estate Market update - July 2013

Real Estate Update

July 2013

 ó In June 2013, the median price increased to $245,908.  That is 44.5% higher than one year ago!!!
ó 29.9%  of the purchases in the month were ALL CASH.   That number is slowly starting to decrease.  Since prices have increased, a lot of investment properties are no longer making financial sense for many cash investors.  That is good news for the First Time Buyers that have been having a tough time competing with investors in the lower price ranges of $250,000 and below.
ó The available housing inventory is up to 1.1 months.  I expect to see that number slowly increase as the year goes on.  A “normal” or “balanced market” is between 4 to 5 months. 
ó The homes that are priced rightshow well and have a high quality marketing plan are still receiving multiple offers but the buying frenzy has died down a bit since interest rates jumped up at the beginning of June.
ó High Demand and Low Supply/Inventory has driven the market prices up in 2013.  I am starting to see signs that the market is slowly beginning to find a balance and seller’s current power may shift to be more equal this fall and winter.
