Tale of Two Markets - Sacramento Real Estate update in Winter 2015/16



Doug Reynolds, a Sacramento Area Realtor, discusses the current real estate market in Sacramento:

A "Tale of Two Markets" I call it.  There's an interesting dynamic going on in the Sacramento Real Estate Market right now.  Properties are either being sold for at or above list price within a few days of hitting the market with multiple offers OR they are sitting for a long time with very little activity and having to do price reductions to chase the market.  There's not a whole lot going on in the middle right now.

Check out the video for a bit more detailed info.


PS - Sorry, the audio near the end starts to get off a bit.  I have no idea why other than technology just sucks some times.  Thanks for pushing through :-)

Interesting World of Sacramento Real Estate - 11/27/2015

Since i became a full time Sacramento Real Estate agent, i have seen and heard many strange/funny/odd/weird/interesting things.  A lot of times i get to see things many people would not in their job since i am inside of so many homes and interacting with some many different people from all walks of life.  Here's a quick look at my latest interesting "thing."

#InterestingWorldofRealEstate: This week i wanted to share some photos from a house i showed in my neighborhood of #CollegeGlen.  This was about a year ago but a very interesting/cool feature i had never seen before.  The house backed up to the HWY 50 so there was an extremely large sound barrier/block wall in the backyard.  The prior owner was an avid rock climber.  They installed indoor rocking climbing holds on the large wall.  This turned the wall into a feature for fun and exercise, for all ages.  If my daughter had been with us, she would have stayed out there all day.  A really fun "thing" i wanted to share this week.  #BelayEquipmentIncluded #3bed2bathWithaRockClimbingWall #Sacramento #SacramentoRealEstate

Sacramento Real Estate Video Market Update November - December 2015



Doug Reynolds, a Sacramento Area Realtor, discusses the most recent market stats from Sacramento County.  

The stats have been pretty stead for the past few months but right now the market is split in half, some sellers are sitting on the market with no offers and other sellers are getting their home sold for top dollar right when they come on the market. 

Sacramento is typically a cyclical market so the volume of sales and pricing will most likely taper off a little bit in the fall/winter. 

Find out why it's not a bad thing to be a buyer in the market right now.  And also how you can have success as a seller during the slower winter months.

Sacramento Real Estate Market update - November 2015

Sacramento
Real Estate Update



November 2015



ó In October, the median price stayed the same at $290,000 compared to Sept. 2015. The median is 6.6% higher than one year ago.
ó The available housing inventory is at 1.8 months. I expect that number to increase a bit as we approach the winter.                           A “normal”or “balanced market” has been redefined over the past decade & is now considered about 3 months.
ó It’s a price sensitive market right now.  The homes that are priced right, show well and have a high quality marketing plan are getting sold.   The overpriced properties are having price reductions to try and get more attention. The summer market was strong with balance for both buyers and sellers but Sacramento is typically a cyclical market.  So, the volume of sales and pricing will most likely taper off a little bit in the winter.

Interesting World of Real Estate - 11/12/2015

#InterestingWorldofRealEstate: This week it's just a very odd thing.  I was recently showing property in #Carmichael and my client and i were heading into a vacant property.  We first walked into the kitchen and then we went down the hall and turned the corner to see this.  So weird to see a dirty/rust shovel in the corner of a bright lime green room.  I felt it was so odd i just had to snap a picture.  By the way, this house has been on the market for over 6 months and is over priced.  Huh?  That's weird the #ShovelStaging is not getting it sold.  Not to mention there was also about 7 different types of flooring in the 1100 square foot house.  #Sacramento #SacramentoRealEstate
