home selling sacramento
I’ve noticed a slight difference in the Sacramento real estate market this week. It’s a sign, I believe, that the market is struggling to head north instead of south. I wouldn’t say we are headed for full-blown appreciation by any stretch of the imagination but it is a positive signal that we might be pulling out of this real estate slump in Sacramento. It’s the piece of evidence I’ve been watching to emerge and have not yet witnessed until this week. We’ve monitored small median price change increases in year-over-year monthly stats, but not this.
Would a seller take this to sell a house? Would a seller take that to buy a mouse? Would you, could you, in a car, take them, take them, here they are? This is what it’s like putting a home on the market in Sacramento today. Offers falling out of the woodwork and from all directions. I tell sellers that I’m almost afraid for them because I know what will happen, and they do not. Sam, I am. I am prepared. But sellers are freaking out. I know it before it happens.
There is a long parade of offers coming my way today. Thinking ahead, I had mentioned to a seller last week that we should go on the market on Monday so we can all enjoy a relatively quiet Labor Day Weekend. Meaning her home will probably be sold by this Wednesday, at the latest. What is a little bit wild are the calls and emails that I’ve been receiving from buyer’s agents. They all want to know what the seller will do and what the seller will accept.
