Which Types of Sacramento Homes Are Actually Selling?

Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

Agents I've been talking with and sharing our listing experiences all pretty much say the same thing. We have a perfectly average house, a nice home, but once the buyer flaked and fell out of escrow, nobody else is making an offer. It sits. Why did the buyer flake? Most likely because they could not believe their eyes after a home inspection and freaked, a few probably can't qualify for a loan despite the worthless preapproval, but others found a house they liked better.

Since buyers can cancel escrow for any reason during inspection periods, they can cancel because another house became available. So they flit off. It's not ethical nor necessarily legal but they manage to do it. Leaving the seller of a perfectly good home in the dust.

Fortunately, there are HOT homes selling in our Sacramento fall real estate market. But what kinds of homes are they? Read more in my personal blog today at this link: What Types of Homes are Selling in Sacramento?

The same situation here, Elizabeth. It's a new day. You are on top of the nuances of your market and sellers need to follow your lead. You are the one to get their homes sold.

Oh, it's so frustrating but, taking on the challenge of putting the marketing back together in full-force can definitely get the job done for those poor sellers who find themselves back on the market. 

Hiring someone like you that will make it happen a second time is key, Elizabeth!

Hi Elizabeth... same thing here... always amazes me how despite the differences in various marketplaces there are always big similarities, as well.

Elizabeth, our market is dreadfully slow.   One or two showings now for the weekend - what a difference!

After more than two years of having a hot-hot-hot seller's market, things have significantly slowed.  It may take some getting use to by current sellers.
