Sacramento Home Sales – Year Over Year

Local Real Estate Trends

Year over year, home sales in Sacramento have seen dramatic improvement. It appears as if the regions market conditions have returned to pre-bubble conditions. Homes appear to have returned to the same prices as before the real estate collapse of 2008.

It’s All Good News, Sacramento Home Sales Are On The Rise

The latest report from CoreLogic show the median price for home sales in Sacramento County approaching $300,000. The last time it was that high was in the fall of 2007, after which prices fell by nearly half over the next five years. Put even simpler, housing values are smack dab back to where they were in mid-2004, before easy credit and rampant speculation fueled a titanic 25 percent surge in prices by mid-summer 2005.
A similar trend is going on right now in El Dorado, Yolo and Placer counties, where median home prices are also at mid-2004 levels. By 2013, we finally experienced a recovery as prices of undervalued homes values jumped by about 30%. While that trend has cooled, home sales in Sacramento are up! Prices since have been still been steadily rising, generally by almost 10% annually, since the middle of 2014. This trend looks to continue throughought the rest of 2016 into next year.
