Seller's Market or Buyer's Market Varies by Price Range

Seller's Market or Buyer's Market Varies by Price Range

Inventory of single family homes in El Dorado Hills has jumped 145% since January 2013 but looking at the overall picture we are still in a Seller's market with 3.9 months of inventory.  If only things were that simple. As you will see by the following charts, whether it's a seller's market where sellers have the advantage or a buyer's market where buyers tend to have the advantage, varies depending on the price range.  A couple things to remember: below 6 months of inventory is considered a seller's market, above 6 months of inventory is considered a buyer's market.  The months of inventory mean that if no other homes came on the market, it would take that long to deplete the current number for sale.  It is calculated by dividing the sales into the listings. 

All Price Ranges

 

All Price Levels

 

Homes Up to $650K

Homes in the price range up to $650K accounted for roughly 58% of the total homes for sale last month and 80% of the total sales for the month.  That equated to 2.9 months of inventory - clearly a seller's market.  

 

Home Prices up to $650K

 

Homes $650K up to $900K

Homes in the price range from $650K up to $900K accounted for 20% of the total homes for sale and 16% of the total sales for the month.  That equated to 5 months of inventory - still a seller's market but very close to a neutral market

 

Homes $650K to $900K

 

Homes $900K and over

Homes at $900K and over accounted for 22% of the total homes for sale but only 4% of the total homes sold.  This equates to 22 months of inventory - clearly a buyer's market.  

Homes $900K and over

 

So what does all this mean for you.  If you are selling you must take this into consideration when setting your listing price as this is your competition.  If you have a home to sell in El Dorado Hills in the lower price ranges there is more demand (more buyers) and the chances of getting your list price are much higher.  If you are buying a home in the lower price ranges again there is more demand so you may run up against multiple offers and may even have to offer over the list price.  Either way, make sure your agent is showing you where you stand based on your price range.

DeeDee - This is a great example of why buyers and sellers need to look beyond the headlines and talk to a local agent to find out exactly what type of market their property is in.  Not all markets and price points are the same.  Great information!
