.... so says an article in today's Fresno Bee. And its true, and I have to admit that I have been behind the curve on market reporting but hope that will change.  Its actually difficult to blog all that you would like when you're busy transacting business.  Don't get me wrong, I haven't been THAT busy, but the beginning of the year is off to a much better start than last year.

statistics: Fresno Ca --- 24 Hour Market Update - 04/30/09 07:25 AM
Stats show home sales picking up.  In the last 24 hours we have 56 New Listings and 19 Back on the Market.
Thats 75 properties on the SELL SIDE
During that same 24 hour period we are showing 24 Contingents and 71 Pendings.

statistics: Fresno California -- 24 HOUR -- Market Snapshot - 11/13/08 05:00 PM
These brief snapshots really help you get a feel for what is going on in the market. what you are seeing are the numbers for the last 24 hours on the Fresno MLS.
As you can see from the numbers in the graph below the ratio of price increases to price reductions tells the story as to where prices are going. We had 124 price reductions compared to 10 price increases. This is an imbalanced market and tells us that prices are continuing to be adjusted DOWNWARD.
We had 85 new listings and 44 back on the market for a total … (0 comments)

Here are the 24 hour market stats for the Fresno California Real Estate Market:
Its fairly a apparent from the stats (as in Price Reductions) that prices continue to decline but you have to understand that many of the listings with price reductions were WAY over priced to begin with and either the banks or the owners are just figuring it out.

Our monthly sales figures are improving.  As priced drop buyers continue to move into the market.  I just closed an escrow for a first time home buyer and have an offer out for another young couple seeking to … (0 comments)

Get-rich real estate books also hit a slump Which is somewhat ironic because usually when these books are flying off the shelves and everybody is in a real estate buying frenzy you’re probably near a market top.
I am a real estate investor and a stock investor.  I have done fairly well with most of my real estate investments but I’m going to tell you a little secret - Lazarus has made far more money investing in stocks than in real estate.  There are several one-liners that I have heard about timing stock trades over the years which have stuck with … (3 comments)

statistics: Official beginning of the Recession… - 01/14/08 04:22 AM
I am marking today’s date, January 14th 2008, as the official beginning of the recession.  I’m certain it is because just a little while ago I was headed to Starbucks to buy some coffee for the office and just when I would have turned left to go into the SBUX lot I turned right instead and went into Savemart - yes, you heard me right: Savemart.  I decided I would buy some Folgers instead.
Gosh, how long has it been since I have bought Folgers?  So long I didnt even recognize their new packaging.  I remember a metal can; now its … (3 comments)

statistics: Fresno CA Real Estate Market Update - 01/13/08 05:28 PM
Well I just saw a news report that said the the median price of Fresno homes in December was $249,000.  In the update for November the median price was at $255,000 so the market saw another dip ~~~~~YAWN~~~~~ .
As a reminder the peak was June of 2006 with a median price of approx $314,000 so prices are down approx 22% from the highs.

THE GOOD NEWS:
According to the information provided by The Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO)
in their LAST REPORT
Property values in Fresno CA increased 97.52% in the last 5 years.  Fresno is actually way up there in the ranks for home appreciation [ mostly because prior to the run up prices were so depressed]. 
THE BAD NEWS:
According to the same report Fresno Housing Prices gave up 2.62% in the last quarter and 5.74% for the year.  Those numbers, however, conflict with the those reported in the Fresno Bee, Sunday DEC 2, 2007 (Real Estate Section - page D2) where numbers from … (2 comments)
