The reading of these pages should start here then move to each page in the above menu. This analysis incorporates most market data to help understand and explain the Sacramento metropolitan real estate market trends. Data is from Sacramento, El Dorado, and Placer Counties. Within this area are many sub-markets which are affected by market forces (below) in similar ways but result in different prices, supply levels, and housing demand. Where most forces are predecessors TO market behavior (notwithstanding recursive effects), the trends are based on results FROM that behavior. The analysis is documented so client decisions are supported. Collection, analysis and reporting on the market data is an attempt to understand where we are going, where we were and what is happening. Markets get disrupted mostly by events, seasons, psychology, and chance. The data I collect is for 3 Counties and 52 Zip Codes.
Under all is the dirt. The Sacramento Metropolitan real estate market covers a lot of dirt. The Metrolist (MLS) system I use to expose and search includes many different parts of California.

Ongoing collection of data and the presentationi of that data is based on “how I would be able to understand AND agree with potential future trends”.

Comparisons are made to last month and last year for most indicators.
Mortgage rates, buyer and seller confidence, new home permits, and employment exert extreme forces on the supply and demand for resale homes.
Cash or Loan, what did buyers use to purchase homes. This is important to know if we want validation of how motivated the buyers are.
