The number of homes in escrow, claiming a pending or back-up status, doubled during the months of November and December. More transactions, more buyers and more sellers! Prices continue to increase as closed homes ranged from $205,000 - $405,000. In comparison the active listings range from $260,000 - $499,000.

Buyers seeking a home in Orangecrest Riverside are able to select from new construction homes found at Mission Grove built by Standard Pacific Homes, standard resale homes and distressed sales.

Sellers may consider listing their homes early in the year as they will have less competition. By utilizing a few staging recommendations to enhance the curb appeal and a well maintained interior, sellers should receive solid offers for the purchase of their home.
