Percentages of Recovery in Sacramento Housing Market

Until I took a peek in MLS at the number of short sales available in Sacramento County, I did not realize how few there actually are. I mean, for a while there, I sold more short sales than any other agent in a 7-county area. In fact, I might still hold the record, don't know. But right now, we have only 13 short sales on the market, with an average days on market of almost 60 days. Thirteen homes out of 2,746.

What a difference 12 years makes! Or does it?

Because you would think all areas of Sacramento have rebounded from the height of the market in June of 2006. The statistics, though, tell a different story. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Wonder if Median Prices of Sacramento Homes Have Recovered from 2006?
