I’ve been talking quite a bit lately about “layers of value” or things that impact the real estate market. Values increase or decrease based on many factors. Let’s look at the image below to see some of the bigger influences for the Sacramento market.

Yet at the same time, it’s still good to see visuals like this to reinforce what we know and also anticipate what the future of the market will look like as current trends unfold. As you can see in the image above too, there is definitely a stabilization of values that occurs toward the end of each year as the colder months ensue.

The only thing I ask is you link back if online.
