News reporters may be trying to bring you accurate news about the housing market, but unless they're reporting facts and figures for real estate sales in Santa Rosa and Sonoma County, what they're saying could be completely inaccurate regarding our market.
Even if they're quoting agents in your general vicinity, they could be wrong.
For instance, I recently reviewed four real estate articles written about the market in cities within about a 200 mile radius. Three articles said the market was booming, with only 2 months' worth of inventory. The fourth article talked about the slump in sales and the number of vacant homes still unsold.
The real estate market is always local, so while it may flow along following national or regional trends, it may not. It depends a great deal upon the economy in any given community and it may also depend upon how many new homes were ready for occupancy when the market crashed.
Two cities just a handful of miles apart could be experiencing completely different real estate markets.
So how can you know the truth about the market here in Sonoma County?
Easily – just ask me.
In short, it's a snapshot of the market as it is today, right here in Sonoma County.
