Do you want to see the market? Let’s look at some specific price ranges in a few local counties. I know many readers are outside of Sacramento, so I’m curious if these trends are anything like your market. Overall inventory declined this past month, which is common during Spring. Properties are still selling quickly, though definitely not as fast as last year.
Quick: I suggest scrolling down to your primary county and taking a minute to digest the latest trends. Or check out my video with commentary here or below.
Talking Point: Inventory is very thin in Sacramento County right now and properties under $300,000 are tending to sell more quickly than higher-priced listings. Remember too there are many more listings and sales in Sacramento County each month compared to many surrounding counties.
Talking Point: Inventory is a tad higher in Placer County compared to Sacramento County, though it is still very low. There really isn’t much for sale under $300,000 when looking at the entire market. High dollar homes are definitely taking longer to sell than the lower half of the market (which is normal).
Talking Point: The higher the price, the longer it took to sell last month (generally speaking). Listings below $200,000 are definitely shrinking. Have you noticed how the quality of homes available at the low end has really changed over these past months? Options for first-time buyers to get into a good quality home under $200,000 have definitely diminished lately.

More Placer County by Request: I’ll be sharing a bit more Placer County trends in light of many requests. I’ll also be taking a wider focus at times to discuss the overall market in Sacramento, Placer, Yolo & El Dorado County. Graphs will always be clearly labeled. Sound good?
