It’s February 2017 and once again VALLEJO CALIFORNIA is the #1 Hottest Real Estate Market in the USA!

The National Association of Realtors just released the list of

America’s Hottest Real Estate Markets for February 2017

Once again the Vallejo California area (with Fairfield right next to it) is at the nation’s top spot. There are several factors are affecting this such as low inventory, relatively low prices compared to neighboring areas like San Francisco, Napa, Sonoma, San Jose, etc. of Northern California in the SF Bay Area and as says the median days on market. Homes are selling fast, over the listing prices and getting multiple offers. Buyers are often times forced to agree to higher earnest money deposit funds, shorter (or no) contingency periods such as inspections, investigations, appraisals or loans, if possible, in order to beat out other offers.Image titleTiming is a key factor in today’s hot market so if you’re really serious about purchasing your home, you better be either proving that you’ve got the cash to do it, proving that you’re pre-approved, and ready to move fast with a fair or even excellent offer that is sometimes way over what the sellers are asking.

I know it doesn’t make sense to many and it’s hard to trust, but I’ve put in 19 offers for one client (most of which were great offers over asking) due to other offers higher and/or better than theirs. This is especially true in the lower priced homes, such as those in the $250,000-$450,000 price range. Other homes in the higher price ranges typically take more time to sell for various reasons.

In the luxury real estate market, most tend to sit one the market because there are fewer people able to purchase in those price ranges, depending upon the area. In San Francisco they are still selling pretty fast, but in the Vallejo – Fairfield area there are a lot more homes in the lower price ranges. The luxury markets of Solano County are spread out and there are some nice places in Vallejo (like Hiddenbrooke and a few others) but one of the best is in Fairfield, in a gated community called Eastridge, in Green Valley. There are a couple of builders that have done some of the custom luxury homes there and one has just sold pretty much all of their homes and are just about ready to sell their final one along with their model home. They were typically ranging from 3000-6000 square feet, offering little in the way of landscaping, pools, etc. Other homes built in the last 10-15 years in the area offer more mature landscaping and some have pools, hot tubs, pool houses, basketball courts, etc already.

One of my featured listings in the SF Bay Area is 5240 Sunridge Drive, Fairfield, CA 94534. Here is some more info about it and this highly desired area of Northern California. Fairfield is just east of Vallejo, and is often included in the hottest market with Vallejo (Vallejo-Fairfield-Suisun City).
