Trends in real estate are ever fascinating. Just as a flock of birds in the sky suddenly move in a different direction altogether, seemingly for no reason. The momentum in real estate is too omnipresent. Some people think greed and emotion have always driven the markets and real life in general. I think the driving common denominator of the two is desire.
July 2020 Sacramento County housing market update written by Josh Amolsch, is a terrific post, very informative, ENJOY!
Come January 2021, we may look back at the year 2020 and conclude that “unprecedented” was the word of the year. I can think of a few more words too, but that would be for a different blog. That word comes in to play for the July 2020 Sacramento housing market update in a couple of areas. But the driving factor here is nothing new. Inventory is the culprit of rising prices. Take a look at the Month of Inventory for July 2020. I could not find one instance in the last 15 years when the Months of Inventory was at .7 months except for July 2020. Unprecedented. This is down 46.5% from July 2019. Sacramento’s real estate has proven to be very strong during the COVID-era. Stronger than ever, in fact.

I know shopping for a home today is hard work and very frustrating at times. Inventory is low, and demand is high – It may take many offers, and a few tension-filled bidding sessions, before you land that home. Buyers can quickly get discouraged and say, “I am tired of this. I am just going sign a new rental lease instead and try this again in 6 months to a year”.
June 2020 Sacramento housing, just another year, same old routine. Well, if the Sacramento housing market was a person, she may be saying those things. Since achieving my real estate license and subsequent membership with the Sacramento Association of Realtors in 2012, the Sacramento housing market has outpaced itself every year.
This year has been no different. The Pandemic no doubt affected real estate, but it has been quite the opposite of what everyone was thinking. Well, not the opposite of what the smart, experienced Realtors were saying. Sure, there were and still, are, some price adjustments happening, but look at the numbers below. Numbers never lie.
Don’t believe the news. Or at least don’t believe a majority of it. You might think real estate is going the way of Blockbuster or disco if you watch the news these days. I can tell you with full certainty that it is not. In May, 1,556 homes went into escrow and that is 98% of the inventory that was available in Sacramento County in April 2020. The turnover rate in our area is incredible! Overall, pendings are up 46% from April 2020 and new listings are up 12.1% according to the May 2020 Housing Report for Sacramento County.
