An encouraging real estate trend in Elk Grove

Is the real estate market improving? While I’m not overly optimistic about the economy, it’s good to see a general trend throughout the market as seen in the table below. The percentage of foreclosures in the Sacramento area has seen a decrease over the past few years, while the level of short sales has seen an increase. Moreover, the overall percentage of distressed sales has seen a decline too.

What do you think this means?

95757 Zip Code Market Trends for Short Sales and REOs

The following graph was added as a result of a great question by Jeff in the comments section. “What were property values doing during this time?” was the question asked. It looks like the 95757 zip code has seen a clear decline in property value over the past three years. Yet at the same time it’s important to note the rate of decline has slowed down from previous years.

    Hey Ryan,
    I see a significant difference from the first year, less from last year to this year, although there is still a change. Just curious, other than the types of sales, what were the values doing?

    Thanks for the post.

      Thanks Jeff. After your comment I added a trend graph to show what property values were doing over this same period. They declined overall, though the rate of decline is much lower than it was in previous years (not a total “ski slope” decline we saw in years past). It seems this market has been flirting off and on with stability in property values in recent times too.
