RESALE HOME MARKET KEEPS CHURNING

10/11/17 by Lyon Real Estate

The Greater Sacramento region does not appear to be in any hurry for a seasonal slowdown. The 2,663 new open escrows reported in September marked a 7 percent increase compared to the same month last year. That pace also left the 4,541 homes available for sale at month end a mere 1 percent greater than August and 7 percent below September of 2016. This market information is presented by Lyon Real Estate based upon data provided by Trendgraphix Inc., a Sacramento-based reporting company. 

Price stability however, after months of upward pressure, continued to follow the same pattern as last year. The average closed sale price of $426,000 and median of $385,000 for September, both marked the lowest totals in these well watched market indicators since April. Regardless, the key metrics still reflect slightly more than an 8 percent increase year-over-year. Closed escrows were on the market an average of 30 days and received approximately 98 percent of original asking price. These numbers remained very consistent with those of the strongest sales months over the past year.

The upper-end market -- homes priced above $750,000 -- told a very interesting story for this time of year. While the inventory level ended September at 4 percent higher than last year, 173 new open sales were 45 percent greater over the same period. The sold and closed properties total for the month was 16 percent higher than last year. This significant jump in new opens will certainly produce elevated closed sale results in the upper-end over the coming months.

“While overall sales in the market remain very strong, opportunities for buyers in the entry level continue to evaporate,” says Pat Shea, president of Lyon Real Estate. This is clearly evident as the amount of inventory priced below $350,000 was 22 percent lower at month-end compared to September of last year. Consequently, closed sales for the month were off 25 percent as well.

“Positive and sustainable sales results are very exciting when you look at the market as a whole,” says Shea. “We are fortunate to see strong job numbers and some upward pressure on wages that boost market momentum in the move-up and upper-end. Entry level buyers will need to be creative, resourceful, patient and lucky however, in the coming years if they are to enjoy the benefits of home ownership. Assistance from family and friends will likely be their ticket.”

RESALE HOMEBUYERS REMAIN UNDETERRED

09/14/17 by Lyon Real Estate

During the month of August, 3,058 resale, residential properties were placed under contract across the 4-county Greater Sacramento region. The surge in new open escrows reflected a 15 percent jump over July sales and a 10 percent increase compared to August of 2016. The new open escrow total for August also marked the highest number in any calendar month since May of 2012. 

Consistently strong open escrow numbers over the previous few months also generated a notable 2,706 closed sales during August. This number represented a 5 percent increase versus July and also delivered the third highest closed sale month in the previous twelve. Market information is presented by Lyon Real Estate based upon data provided by Trendgraphix Inc., a Sacramento-based reporting company.

Resale housing supply watchers throughout the region witnessed a modest gain as August listings produced a 3 percent increase in standing inventory compared to July. The 4,532 available properties however, still left the market 9 percent short of last year at this time.    

“The move-up and upper-end price points are providing extraordinary evidence that the region’s over achieving sales trends will continue into fall,” says Pat Shea, president of Lyon Real Estate. He added that “the $450,000 to $750,000 price range saw a 29 percent increase in new open escrows last month compared to August of 2016. Above $750,000, there was a remarkable 67 percent spike when comparing the same time frame.”

Regardless of the flurry of sales, price stability appears to be evident due to a few additional metrics. The average closed sale price of $432,000 for August remained within the recent 4-month trend that has toggled between $431,000 and $437,000. The median of $390,000 followed suit staying with the 4-month range of $389,000 to $398,000. Both the average and median sales prices for August exhibit approximately 8.5 percent increases versus last year at this time.

 “All current and relevant market metrics and trends suggest that sellers are appropriately pricing and positioning their properties to sell and eager buyers continue to write compelling, good faith purchase offers,” says Shea. “The strong local economy and favorable mortgage lending environment continue to boost consumer confidence and encourage buyers to take full advantage of the tremendous home values throughout Greater Sacramento.”

HOUSING INVENTORY BEGINS SEASONAL CLIMB

08/15/17 by Lyon Real Estate

HOUSING INVENTORY BEGINS SEASONAL CLIMB 

Listings reach highest level since September of 2016

On July 31st, 4,405 residential properties were posted as active and available for sale throughout the 4-county Greater Sacramento region. That number marked a 10 percent increase in supply when compared to June, but remained 12 percent below July of last year. Currently, the region enjoys its highest inventory level since September of 2016. This market information is presented by Lyon Real Estate based upon data provided by Trendgraphix Inc., a Sacramento-based reporting company.

During the month of July, 2,481 properties were reported as sold and closed. This represented a 17 percent fall off versus a very robust June. “Due to protracted escrow periods and the number of business days in a month, it is best to look at longer periods to accurately assess trends,” says Pat Shea, president of Lyon Real Estate. “For instance, if we compare unit numbers from May, June and July combined, closed sales were up 1.4 percent versus last year.”

The rate of new open escrows or pending sales, support expectations that closed sales will remain strong in the coming months. New escrows opened in July were up 3 percent compared to June. They also stand 5 percent higher over the past three months compared to last year at this time.

The average closed sale price of $433,000 and median price of $392,000 posted in July were both more than 9 percent greater than last year. Sellers received 99 percent of their original list price and were on the market an average of 24 days prior to accepting a contract. Below the one million dollar price point across the entire region, there remains a meager 1.5 months of inventory based upon the current rate of sales. A seller’s market is typically viewed as anything less than 4 months.

“All of these key market metrics further reflect the stability and sustainability of the Greater Sacramento real estate market,” says Shea. “Expect inventory to climb slightly over the next few months but sales to remain very steady. All of the news surrounding our Northern California and local economy is good and consumer confidence is quite high. It’s still an excellent time to buy or move-up, all throughout our region.”

HOMES PRICES RISING PERSISTENTLY IN THE TIGHT MARKET

07/11/17 by Lyon Real Estate

The number of new listings entering the housing market just cannot keep pace with insatiable buyer demand throughout the entire 4-county Greater Sacramento region. Standing inventory at June 30th rested at 4,014 homes active and available for sale, 15 percent below the same time last year. Meanwhile, a total of 8,708 new open escrows were posted during April, May, and June, representing a 5 percent increase over the second quarter of 2016. This market information is presented by Lyon Real Estate based upon data provided by Trendgraphix Inc., a Sacramento-based reporting company.

The median price for closed escrows in the month of June hit a recent milestone of $400,000. August of 2006 was the last time the region enjoyed that number, and the market was surely moving in a different direction with the impending great recession. The four-county region was staring at an astounding 15,437 homes for sale on the market at that time.

“The elevated home values across our region have led to significant increases in owner equity. Fortunately, the financial benefits are constructed on a solid foundation of more stringent loan programs and years of record low mortgage rates,” says Pat Shea, president of Lyon Real Estate. “Stability is further strengthened by the number of cash buyers prevalent over the past several years.”

The lack of entry level housing has become a major challenge throughout the state of California, and Greater Sacramento is no longer an exception. The steady growth in our local economy and relative affordability compared to the San Francisco Bay Area continue to attract more buyers.

Houses selling at less than the recent median price of $400,000 are scarce, as the number of available properties below that figure on the market in the four-county area shows:  Sacramento 965, El Dorado 212, Placer 162 and Yolo 67. 

Shea states, “the move-up market -- homes priced between $400,000 and $750,000 -- does offer some potential with 1.5 months of available inventory based upon the current rate of sales. More choices are also available for prospective buyers in this price range, courtesy of new construction opportunities. Steady move-up activity remains absolutely mission critical for our region to offer the prospect of home ownership for first time and returning buyers in the entry-level.”

NEW LISTINGS QUICKLY DRIVE SALES FOR HOUSING MARKET

06/14/17 by Lyon Real Estate

Voracious buyer demand throughout the entire 4-county Greater Sacramento region is maintaining a tight squeeze on the peak selling season for our housing market. At the end of May, 3,547 homes were left active and available for sale. Even though this marked a 12 percent increase over April’s standing inventory, the resale housing stock remains 17 percent below last year at this time.

The seasonal influx of new listings entering the market during May were rapidly consumed by a 25 percent month-over-month surge in open escrows. The region is now left once again with slightly more than one month of active and available homes for a steady stream of eager buyers. This market information was presented by Lyon Real Estate based upon data provided by Trendgraphix Inc., a Sacramento-based reporting company.

As is typical, Placer County saw the highest average list price at $755,000 and the highest average sold price at $507,000. There were 647 closed sales in Placer during the month of May. Nearly 20 percent of the available listings were in the luxury price point of $900,000 and above yet fewer than 5 percent of the closed sales occurred in that price range. Below $900,000 the Placer market remains very tight.  

Sacramento County logged 1,618 closed sales with the lowest average sales price for the region at $383,000. Even though 2,202 new properties entered the market in May, the more favorable price point and highest buyer demand led to 2,002 new open escrows. Standing inventory for the county rested at 1,761 homes active and available at month-end.   

El Dorado and Yolo Counties experienced $520,000 and $509,000 average sales prices respectively. El Dorado County closed 252 properties and had the highest remaining inventory at 2.1 months based upon the current rate of pending sales. Yolo County logged 186 closed sales for the month and had 245 homes available for sale or 1.1 months of inventory, at month end.

The news around affordability, growth and development for Greater Sacramento continues to fuel Northern California and national media outlets,” says Pat Shea, president of Lyon Real Estate. “Even with the prospect of upward pressure on mortgage rates later this year, look for this to be a summer to remember for home sellers and buyers throughout our region.”
