Number of homes for sale is crazy low.

Posted on Updated on



Hi everyone,


I wanted to talk a little about the crazy low number of homes for sale in the area. Commonly referred to as “inventory” by Realtors. I was curious the other day about how many homes were for sale in the Placerville area and in the MLS system. What I found was astonishing. In all of Placerville there were only 120 homes on the market in the MLS. Now this chart refers to only the 95667 zip code and is for January of 2016, (See graphic).

So, I ran those same numbers and here is what it is as of this post…..112. This is very low inventory historically. Now would be the time to list your property for sale and not to wait until everyone else lists their homes for sale. Again see the chart and notice that the inventory increases dramatically in the months of May, Jun, July, etc. Don’t be caught up in the trend but rather set the trend.

If your home is not within the 95667 zip code and you would like this information for your specific area call me and I would be happy to get that information for you.
