jessica wallace realtor: What Does Proposition 19 in California Do - 04/29/21 10:28 AM

Hi guys! It’s Jessica Wallace, your Santa Cruz REALTOR. I wanted to tell you briefly today about Proposition 19 in California and what it can mean for you and your family.
One of the things that Proposition 19 will do is that if you are over 55 and you own a home and you sell it and you move somewhere else in California you get to keep your property tax basis with you.
A lot of people that are older in California have owned their homes for decades sometimes. They have very low taxes, property taxes, and now you could take those property … (0 comments)

jessica wallace realtor: Santa Cruz Housing Market Update: February 2021 - 04/28/21 07:50 AM

Hi Guys, it’s Jessica Wallace here, Santa Cruz REALTOR. I wanna give you a brief update about where we stand in February, 2021 in the Santa Cruz housing market.
This is the most extreme seller’s market I have ever seen. What’s causing that is high buyer demand and also very very low supply of homes.
We are at one of the lowest I’ve ever seen, at 135 homes currently active on the market in the entire Santa Cruz County. What this is causing is home prices to rise dramatically.
In January, 2021 our average home price reached $1,244,000 in Santa Cruz.
A year ago, in … (2 comments)

jessica wallace realtor: Is the Santa Cruz real estate market shifting? - 11/28/18 10:48 AM
Is the Santa Cruz Real Estate Market Shifting?
There has been a lot of talk over the past 6 months about a change in the market, not just locally in Santa Cruz but also in Silicon Valley and nationally.  The rate of appreciation of home values has slowed down, homes are taking a bit longer to sell and we are seeing more price reductions locally in Santa Cruz.  Does this mean the sky is falling and we are heading for a crash?  I don't think so, certainly nothing like we saw in 2008-2011.  
We have been in the midst of an extreme seller's market … (1 comments)
