The Stats for February 2019 Sacramento Housing Market

When looking at the statistics for the Sacramento housing market in February of 2019, it is hard to find silver linings, which is what most brokerages try to do. They look for strong signs and focus on those. Which makes me think everybody will be talking about the pending sale numbers, but I laugh at that. I see how many buyers flake in escrow and the number of sales that fall apart.

Overall, we have more inventory than last year, sales are down, and I don't believe the vast majority of those sales in escrow will close. For example, in January, our pending sales were up by 35%. However the closed sales for February were up only 7.9% over January. True, we have fewer days in February but not everybody went into escrow at the end of January.
