James Tan MBA Broker/REALTOR - Bethany Real Estate & Investments – Elk Grove
Since March 2020, the US Department of Homeland Security had included Residential Real Estate in its list of essential services. As such we as realtors are allowed to show properties to prospective clients. Of course, we take al lthe necessary precautions for the safety of our clients. Despite COVID, the market has been very strong. There is very little inventory, hence well priced desirable properties, are getting multiple offers, bidding the price up by tens of thousands of dollars. It is a great time to sell. For our sellers, we can list and market your properties. Our listing package includes 3D Hi-Definition Walk Throughs, Videos, Beautiful HDR pictures and Drone shots of your property, and aggresive marketing through social media. In the current market, we are certain to get top dollar and multiple offers. Please contact us for further details at 916 230 5250.
Welcome to our website.
2022 had been another tremendous year for real estate. Prices continued its upward trend. In 2022, the Greater Sacramento market including Elk Grove became sizzling hot until August. For a thorough discussion on the Sacramento market trends, click here to read an analysis by Ryan Lundquist a well known analyst in this region.
Since late 2022, the Greater Sacramento market had shifted. It is no longer a sellers market, often times, sellers had to mark down their prices, and adjusted their expectations. According to the Sacramento Association of Realtors, Median sales price increased 2.9% from $500,500 in March to $515,000 in April 2023, a 9% decrease from April 2022 ($565,500). However, starting March, the market conditions improved, especially at the lower end of the spectrum. This was partly due to the “first time buyers” down payment assistance programs from the CA Government, and partly due to interest rates which came down a little and perhaps due to the Spring weather as well. At the same time, people from the SF Bay Area continue to migrate to the Greater Sacramento region. If you are thinking of selling your home, this presents an opportunity to sell. Feel free to call us to get a thorough assessment of the market, a free CMA and honest advice whether you should sell your property now.
The video below tells the story on channel 3 of the CALHFA “Dream For All” shared appreciation loan/down payment assistance program for first-time homebuyers, and how it ran out of money in 11 days.
