I am surprised at the average days on the market. Hope it improves .

Hi Gita - the average days on market around here typically varies between 150 - 250 days in each of the various towns.

What we find is that an overpriced home - even overpriced by just 10%, will sit on the market forever.  Typically those homes on the market for a year or more were overpriced by 20% or more.

Don - it is interesting to see different areas in this group and what the average prices are and average DOM.  I feel really lucky suddently, although our prices in Sacramento, CA have continued to decline, our average DOM has gone down considerably.  Last year at this time, in some areas in Sacramento County we had almost a 2 year inventory of homes; in those same areas this year we are down to 2-3 months inventory.  Things are improving here!

Lori - Glad to hear the Sacramento market is improving! Is that due to sales or homes being taken off the market?

Ridgefield is a sought-after town with high prices.  With about a 5-6 month supply of homes, the town is not doing badly.  Other local towns have well over a one year supply.

The nice thing about this area is you can still find some starter homes in the $300,000 range, as well as move-up homes in the multi-millions.  There's something for everyone!
