Web Site Design and Blogging Support - 12/17/07 07:49 PM
Long before I got into real estate I was a software developer. So it was pretty natural that within a short time after getting into real estate I'd start to really get interested in Internet marketing. I was the first Realtor in Sacramento to publish a blog (back before ActiveRain), and I've done fairly well with my various web sites in the local market. From time to time I've taken on a contract or two in software, but other than that, I've been doing real estate full time since 2002. Of course, I say doing real estate full time, but much of (9 comments)
Placer County Real Estate Market - 12/11/07 12:24 PM
November's numbers in Placer County reflect the general slowdown in the real estate market, but compared to the numbers for Sacramento County, Placer County is holding up fairly well. In November, 228 units sold in Placer County, down 31.1% from last November's 331 units. The average home sold in Placer County for $424,415, down 14.8% from last November's average of $497,946. This year's homes were slightly smaller on average, however. As a result, sold price per square foot feel off more modestly. In November, 2007, the average sold price per square foot in Placer County was $201.05, down 12.1% from the (2 comments)
Roseville Real Estate Market Update - 12/11/07 12:19 PM
The numbers are in for Roseville for November, 2007. The average home sold in Roseville this November for $383,605, down 17.3% from last year's average of $463,647. However, at least some this drop was due to this year's average home being 1976 square feet versus 2051 square feet last year. As a result, the average sold price per square foot dropped less dramatically (well, a little less dramatically, anyway, but we'll take what we can get). Sold price per square foot for Roseville homes in November averaged $194.13, a 14.1% decline from last November's average of $226.06. The number of foreclosures (0 comments)
Take Pity on The Sacramento Bee, The Real Estate Market Did It! - 12/04/07 01:33 PM
This is a story about blaming the real estate market for whatever else is wrong. This is also a tale about a bit of ugly sheudenfreude on my part. The other day I was reading Sacramento News and Review, and there was an article in there about the Sacramento Bee’s stock prices. While the average Sacramento County home owner’s investment lost 20-30% of its value over the last two years (1st chart, below), the average investor in McClatchy Stock (Sac Bee’s parent company), saw the value of their investment fall 75% (second chart, below).
