Bank-owned (REOs) and Short Sales Lead Sacramento's Market

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

Here are a few charts from Trendgraphix that I thought you would find interesting. It shows the amount of homes on the market, the number of pending and the closed sales as of October 2008. The big chart directly below is the non-REOs for sale in Sacramento county, and you can see how the inventory is falling as more sellers remove their homes from the market:

Non reos in Sacramento

The charts below show the tri-county region of REOs and bank-owned homes on the left versus non-reos on the right. You can easily see where the interest is in today's market. But it doesn't mean that the non-reos aren't a good deal because many sellers are pricing their homes to compete with REOs and short sales. It's definitely a good time to be a buyer in Sacramento.

If you are interested in pursuing a bank-owned home or a short sale, please feel free to call or email me. I have my own inventory of short sale listings and provide expert negotiation for buyers of foreclosures and short sales.

Looks like inventory overall is going down which is a good thing.

Those foreclosure/bank-owned figures are astounding, aren't they Elizabeth!

Thanks for stopping by, C, Terry and Myrl. The nice thing about the inventory declining is it leaves the serious sellers who are competing with the foreclosures. Hmmm . . . should a buyer buy a turnkey home from an owner or a home in need of repair from an REO when both homes are priced the same? No brainer.
