For quite some time now the Rohnert Park/Cotati market has been heavily weighted with bank owned/REO's (foreclosed homes) and short sale listings.  This market isfollowing suit with a majority of the rest of the county having be a larger number of short sales in escrow but the numbers generally turn around when we count the closed escrows.   Since the Bank Owned inventory has been bought up and not as many coming on the market we are seeing a higher percentage of available short sale listings.   We believe that the trend of a heavy short sale market will continue but that we should start to see a bit more inventory of Bank Owned listings coming on the market in the not too distant future.  

What Does All This Mean?

Currently we have 191 listings, we have been consistently selling approx 48 listings a month, at this rate Rohnert Park/Cotati has about 4 months of inventory.   As we break these numbers out further, we have about a 1.6 month inventory of Bank Owned homes and a 13 month inventory of Short Sales.

Upon Request I am happy to adjust these stats to a more specific neighborhood within the Rohnert Park/Cotati area or to your own criteria such as certain number of bedrooms and bath or single level to name a few.
