Well the holidays are over and its back to our scheduled programming! I figured that it was a great time to start the New Year with some updated statistics on the Redding real estate market and where its been over the past 6 months with our ever-changing market.
You'll notice that the number of available listings has been steadily decreasing since July when there were over 1,500 available properties...with January increasing over December from those listings that had been taken off for the holidays and then re-added in January and those that waited for the "New Year" to list. What does this number mean? Well...there are fewer homes currently available than the last few months which is good for buyers but there is still quite a bit of inventory for buyers to choose from. It is a good time to list a home (with less competition) than there was a few months ago and the tax credits are making it good for both first time and move-up buyers while helping provide an incentive that sellers see helping to get more homes sold.
Available residential listings as of January 4, 2010: 1,304
December 2009: 1,258
November 2009: 1,332
October 2009: 1,396
