Caravan 4 January

The Caravan this week was run by Linda in our office, and it was a pretty good Caravan because she collected some back listings that were left off previous Caravans for various reasons.

It happens once in awhile that people want extra time to prepare their homes before Caravan, and by the time the real estate office gets around to having a Caravan it has been so long since the listing that it has been forgotten as a “new listing.’

Fortunately, Linda tracks such things (she is well organized), so she has recovered some of those and added the newly added homes.

Consequently, we may have several Caravans this month, but we can also expect rain this month.

There were some interesting homes this past Thursday, but the two on Sandhurst were probably the best, although I like the home on Grassy Way for its location and the one on Meadow Glen Way East was the best priced.

ADDRESS BDRM BTH SQ FT YEAR PRICE $ per SQ FT DOM  
                 
28021 Grassy Wy 3 2 1766 1978 $435,000 $246 85

Week Ending 1 January

Once again we have a week in which there were more homes coming on the market than going off the market – a big change from the past many months, and not a good sign particularly but fairly normal for this time of year. If that continues after March – we will be in trouble.

We had 19 new listings in the Zip Code, and 14 homes went into Pending. Thirteen homes went into the SOLD (final) list.

The Meadows has two new listings:

Price Address Est SF Beds Bath Story Yr Blt #Ac Mkt Time $/SqFt

665,000 26064 Mesa Rock Road 2665 3 4 1 2002 1.77 3 250

749,000 9829 N North View Court Ct 3184 3 4 1 1997 5.45 1 235

Two Meadows homes went into Pending: One at 26855 Cougar pass and one at 29059 Meadow Glen Way West.

No homes in the Meadows closed escrow this past week.

Our office is in charge of Realtors Caravan this next month, and Linda in our office is working on this next Thursday. I suspect we can put at least three together, possibly four, and generally we have one Caravan a month these days.

My guess is that we may have two this month.

The press continues to stress the rise in home prices, but that is a suspect statistic caused by the sales of SLIGHTLY more homes of SLIGHTLY higher prices. That certainly does not mean a particular home is worth more this month than last.

Additionally, the top third of home in price, are still not participating in the housing “recovery.”

Generally, the recovery is at the bottom end – the investment/rental market, there is stability in the middle third, and stagnation in the upper end.

Hidden Meadows is in the stable to stagnant market – still awaiting a major movement.
