Our market for resale, residential real estate is explained in the pages represented in the Market Menu . This analysis incorporates most market data to help understand and explain the Sacramento metropolitan market trends. Data is from Sacramento, El Dorado, and Placer Counties. Within this area are many sub-markets which are affected by market forces 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 in those Counties and Yolo.

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.
