December 2017 - End of year - Roseville real estate update

Several things going on in our crazy world.  Feds just raised the rate a quarter point.  This was to be expected, 3rd time this year they've raised it.  Our economy is doing well and expectations are positive.  There's mixed reviews and feelings about the tax bill about to pass.  I'm optimistic that this will stimulate the economy even more, create new jobs and better opportunities for people.  The simple idea of more jobs is great, but more good paying jobs is the key.  It will probably take a year for us to see the effects of the tax cuts.  2018 is going to be a very telling year for the Trump administration. 
Now, back to our local economy and real estate market.  It's a slow time of year for escrows.  I have a half dozen active buyers; however, they've either seen everything out there or there's nothing to show them.  The sellers I have are mostly waiting for spring to list.  Last year I recall everything kick started early, right after the superbowl.  I'm telling my sellers to be on standby.  As a seller, a low inventory is going to help attract a higher sales price.  I'm looking to get several new listings on mid feb.  I have a great one in Folsom, right behind Broadstone for 450K, and another one in Orangevale that will be ready for 350K. 
I hope everyone has a good holiday vacation, a good Christmas and new years.  You'll get another update from your Roseville Real Estate Agent come the new year.
