    Median Home Price Falls In 95765

    It’s been a tough year for real estate values in some areas of the Sacramento region, again.  Efforts by the government to stop the slide of foreclosures and the seemingly constant bleeding of home values has only served to slow the 2009_average_median_home_price_by_quarter_inevitable. (boy I sound bleak this morning!)

    Are we at the bottom of this downturn?  Many economists, including those at CSUS, don’t think so.  I tend to agree based on more variables than there is time to cite and have been covered aptly here and elsewhere.

    In Rocklin, unlike the below $250K price range in Sacramento where sales price averages have gone up, values are still going down.

    This year, the median home price bottomed out at $299,500 for a 4 bedroom, 3 bath, 2350 square foot home in the third quarter.  Incidentally, per quarter, the characteristics of the median home fit this description.

    In the last quarter of 2009, the median home price rose to $314,000.  I don’t see that trend continuing but what happens is up for debate and to be perfectly honest, it’s all speculation.

    If this downturn has taught us anything it’s that the experts only have a vague idea of what the future holds and as one of my clients says, “only people new to the industry and fools try to predict the future”.  I agree with this completely.

  • Underwater Mortgages: Should you walk away?

    Over 1/3 Of California Mortgages “Underwater”

    homes-under-water I was surfing some of my favorite blogs today and ran into an article by Lori Turoff from HobokenRealEstateNews.com.

    Lori does an excellent job on her site and I’ve gotten many great ideas from her and used them here.  Go by and visit sometime.

    The article, from the NY Times Online,  click here,  is about how it used to be a moral question as to whether or not a homeowner, hopelessly “underwater” on their mortgage, should walk away from their home or continue to pay on an asset with little or no hope of recovering equity in the near term.  (The term “underwater” means that the borrower owes more on the home than the home is worth.)

    Typical Summer Slowdown

    stanford-ranch-homes-for-sale Home sales in Stanford Ranch, Rocklin have slowed down to a snails pace over the last 2 weeks.  Only 8 homes have closed escrow since the 29th of June.  That’s not many but is reflective of a time when most folks are vacationing.

    August could pick up depending on the weather but it’s not typically a barn burning sales month.

    There is still an adequate number of homes available for sale, 77 homes as of this writing.  The selection is very nice but still seems a bit overpriced considering the pace of sales and the sales statistics.  I think there are still good opportunities to get a better than average deal in Stanford Ranch.

    Here are the averages of the homes for sale in Stanford Ranch:

    Beds & Baths: 4 / 3

    Square Feet: 2704

    Nice Week of Home Sales in Stanford Ranch

    stanford-ranch-homes-for-sale 5 homes closed last week in Stanford Ranch, Rocklin.  This is a nice week for a market where homes aren’t moving very quickly.  Part of it is that the market is over priced and the other part is that mortgages aren’t easy to get in this price range.  That said, there are buyers closing homes in this area as we’ve seen.

    Currently, there are 76 homes actively for sale and 22 homes in sale pending. Of the 76 homes on the market in this area, 58 are regular real estate or bank owned homes and 18 are short sales.
