I'd be happy to preview the home for you and take some interior pictures! Call me 707-357-1801.Or email me
If my memory serves me, it's older style home, and is a little out of date. I can't answer why the listing agent hasn't put any interior shots in the listing. Some of the agents around here, want you to come see the inside for yourself. I believe in putting as many views in as I can. As I know a lot of people are looking in our area from out of the area. ... more

There are many factors that are affecting home sales in our area. The #1 reason right now is that inventory is so low. I believe this is because homeowners are reluctant to sell their property for less than they feel it is worth in this market, and are waiting for prices to go back up. Which they are, so we may see more listings in 2013. Another reason is that our economy here is basically tourist driven, so for the most part, people do not purchase here because there are jobs. They purchase here because it is a wonderful vacation designation. They typically purchase a home in our area as a vacation get away, sometimes with the intention of eventually retiring here. And, of course, even though interest rates are at an all time low, funding is more difficult as the criteria is so rigid for qualifying for a loan.
All that said, homes ARE selling here. The biggest problem that I see is lack of inventory.

I just saw your Price Range, it can happen but usually that price range is bank owned they come on the market, and sell quickly. Often times they need some work.

That seems odd to me. Since this is a small area. And there seems to be less crime than
the bay area (where I lived prior to 2005).
I'm wondering what stats this was based on.

As a frequent visitor to Fort Bragg and with an interest in real estate I can give you a fairly educated opinion as to why housing seems slow to sell at present.

The jobs that could qualify you for a $300,000+ loan are not there today. The Ft. Bragg ecomony was largely based on blue collar workers and alot of those jobs have gone away, many of them for good. Arcata has HSU, Eureka has some of that spillover and other industry but they are not doing much better than Ft. Bragg which has a less vibrant economy.

The cost per sq. ft. for a home in Ft. Bragg is too high. The days of $400 sq. ft. for a home in town are over. In the push for the highest commission possible the real estate industry ( with the blessing of the wishful homeowner turned real estate investor ) has done the homeowner a terrible disservice by pricing homes for far more than what they should realistically be selling for. Collusion between these ' professionals' and appraisers has led to a glut of homes that sit unsold driving prices down even further.

The qualifications for a loan to buy anything, much less an overpriced home using a Jumbo Loan, have tightened. I saw people using 5% down to buy $650,000 homes less then 3 years ago. No lending insitution today would even look at you if you came in the door with that proposal. If someone sells a home today that they have owned for less than 5 years ( in California ) they may be lucky to get out of it what they initially put into it and for many this means their 5% initial down payment. You will need 20% down and a good job to get a loan today.

Fort Bragg is isolated, there is not much there to bring in outside buyers and California retirees today are looking elsewhere. Oregon, Texas and the midwest are winning out over the North Coast. Without this influx of new buyers prices in Fort Bragg are most likely going to decline for the foreseeable future.

If you are a potential Ft. Bragg homebuyer be patient, better deals will come. If you are a homseller try to look at the big picture. Price your home relistically, get it looking the best you can and get it sold. There will always be other opportunities.
