Here we are in the beginning of a new year. The housing market has been trending upwards for quite some time now, roughly 2012. There has been some inadvertent bumps and hiccups, but we're continuing to see a positive growth in values. Most predictions are bringing 2017 within a 4-5% increase, year over year. So far, this year is certainly showing this to be the case.
Typically this time of year the market is soft. Not many people are looking to move during the winter and rainy season. The supply and demand are both low right now but the demand is still higher then the supply. I've been telling most sellers that are thinking of selling, not to wait. Usually I would be telling folks to maybe ride it out and wait until spring to get top dollar, but right now we're seeing properties selling fast. There are buyers just waiting and looking at MLS daily for something new to come on. The last house I listed in Roseville sold as soon as I put the sign in the yard. I was still working on the marketing...
I have 8 different properties that I'm currently looking to get on the market. They are scattered around the area from Lincoln to Fair Oaks. If your a buyer, you might want to contact several brokers and see what new they have coming. We have over 80 agents in our office in Roseville and we're constantly updating each other about new properties via our intranet.
2017 is already off to a good start!
