vallejo: Prices In Benicia & Vallejo Up 10% To 19% In One Month - 12/13/09 03:10 AM
Before you fall off your chair, that headline's not a misprint.
I just posted November's home sale statistics for Benicia, Vallejo and the rest of Solano County on our web site and I must admit, even I was surprised to see the numbers climb that much in one month.
Based on everything I've seen happening in the marketplace in recent months, I expected to see another rise in the median price, particularly for Vallejo.
But when I saw a 10% increase in Benicia's median price -- from $374,000 in October to $410,925 in November, I was amazed.
And yet that … (0 comments)

vallejo: Solano County’s Weekly Home Activity Reports For Feb. 23 - 02/24/09 11:47 AM
As has been the case for most of the past six or seven weeks, all of the cities in our Solano County market area except Benicia have fewer active listings today than they did a week ago.
For the first time this year, Vallejo is under the 800 mark, with 796 active listings, thanks to a 25-home decrease from a week ago. In the last two weeks alone, Vallejo’s inventory has dropped by more than 5 percent.
Some of the recent decrease, no doubt, has been due to the moratorium on foreclosures, first by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and most … (0 comments)

vallejo: January Home Sales Off To A Good Start Throughout Solano County…How Did Your Community Fare? - 02/05/09 05:24 PM
January Home Sales Much Stronger Than A Year Ago Throughout Solano County
January got off to a much better start this year than in 2008, at least if you judge it by comparing the number of homes sales. Whereas 2008 got off to a rather tame start amid softening prices and looming economic worries, 2009 took off right where 2008 ended, with much more robust sales activity, particularly in the county’s most affordable cities.
Last January, for example, there were 164 home sales countywide. This January, there were 153 closed sales in Vallejo alone — further evidence that enough home buyers … (0 comments)
