Yes, my prediction for today is December real estate sales in Sacramento could be much stronger than you might expect. There is a lot of doom and gloom talk going around, and I see the numbers, too. Sure, interest rates are climbing, sales prices have appreciated, and now we are moving into a more balanced market.
As with every year, I also move my business home base operations to Hawaii. There are not a lot of face-to-face meetings toward the end of the year, so it's easy for me to sell my listings no matter where I am physically located. My phone is attached to my wrist. Makes it very handy when grocery shopping except when Safeway shoppers wonder why I'm talking to my wrist. They shake their heads: those crazy old haole (white people).
I make this prediction for December based on the unusual uptick in showings and offers at the end of November. Quite unexpected. Nice end-of-year momentum.
