Sacramento Real Estate Movement and Fun.

Back in the days of the worst foreclosure problems of the early 2000’s, I started extrapolating numbers from the Sacramento Area Real Estate market. How many homes were Foreclosures, Short Sales, how many sales were there, how many listings? It was a great education in just how the market was shaping up with home sales. …

Too Many Good Things Real Estate!

I have recently run across way to many great things in the Sacramento Real Estate market. Oh, how will I edit my blog??! Big discussion in our weekly meeting at REMAX Gold. Is it a seller’s market or a buyer’s market? Big Dog Realtor Boy, says, “oh it’s a buyer’s market for sure” (meaning Sacramento…

New Year, New Opportunities!

I always like hearing what new laws come into effect with the New Year. For instance, this year, chickens in California get to live much better-A state law that took effect Thursday requires egg laying hens have enough space to fully extend their limbs. And In New York, taking selfies with tigers is banned by…

A Look At Stats At The End Of 2014

Ahhhhh…the battles can be grand! The naysayers who gather at the water cooler, to tell you how BAD the market is in the fall and around the holidays. The know it all over the backyard fence, who tells you that “your Realtor is wrong, ignore them and list higher–you’ll get your price”. Yes, sometimes I…

It’s Always A Buyer’s Market

Had an interesting conversation with a buyer over the weekend. She was pretty sure the Sacramento Real Estate market was a “seller’s” market, and after looking at several nice properties, she wanted to ‘wait ’till prices come down’. After I picked my jaw up from the floor, I had to put on my educator cap…

Crazy market, hot market, Gulstan Dart, Edie Lambert….it’s the talk of the town and the media. And it’s true, we have a very active and busy market. Good news is that there are more homes for buyers now than 3 months ago. We’ve gone from about 1200 homes to over 1500. Still, many homes enjoying…

Sacramento Real Estate Market Stats

I pulled some numbers, wanted to see what’s going on in Sacramento, beyond what I experience everyday of using the Metrolist, showing homes, and doing property valuations. Please note I use single family residences-homes, condos and that includes homes on acreage. It doesn’t include mobile homes, empty lots, more than 1 home on a lot,…

Crazy Real Estate Market! Arrrgh!!

This Sacramento Real Estate market is crazy!! Eldo, Yolo, Sacto, and Placer Counties combined have only 2325 homes available (houses and condos)!! Down from 3380 six months ago, and 4500 one year ago. Tough times for buyers-there are record numbers of offers on listings. Values flying upwards in some areas, steady but slow climb in…

CHDAP Suspends Assistance Program

Very sorry to report that CHDAP-CALIFORNIA HOMEBUYER DOWN PAYMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM, has been immediately and temporarily suspended. If you were using this program for downpayment assistance with an FHA loan, and you’re already in contract to purchase a home in the Sacramento area, check with your lender immediately. You may be ok. If you are…

More Listings than Pendings!?

Tuesday morning, and just did a quick search on the Metrolist–a quick stats analysis, I am always measuring the market and activity. Looking for multiple examples of trends changing, bringing us to the next market. Given the MLK Holiday, it looks almost like a slow down. Thank goodness for being able to take a breath….
