Quick Facts









Inventory remains the key component to rising prices and demand. Our SOLD properties are down -40.4% month over month to 267 in January 2022. This is down -26% from a year ago. One would think with our sold properties number being down double digits that our inventory would be catching up. This is not the case. Our. inventory was at 167 homes in January 2022 which is down -2.3% month over month  and down -15.7% year over year. Inventory levels remain -62.6% below our 2020 pre pandemic numbers of 444 homes listed in January 2020.

While we sold -40.4% less homes in January than we did in December our prices continued upward to $587,000 which i a +0.7% month over month increase and +7.3% increase from January 2021. Active listed prices continue to outpace the sold prices with an increase of +9.3% year over year and a whopping +25.6% increase from pre covid January 2020. Our average price per square foot rose considerably to $346.00 which is a +14.2% increase year over year and represents the highest per square foot price paid in Solano County history. (*at least as far back as our data goes). Price per square foot rose +4.2% month over month even as lenders have begun to adjust loan rates. We are currently near 4% which is up more than 1.5% year over year.

We traditionally see a slow down in sales and days on market in November, December and January. This year is no different as you can see from the chart above our DOM is at a 12 month high at 37 days on market. This means a seller could expect a home to sell if priced and marketed correctly to sell within 37 days. (See not all home sell in three days with 30 offers above asking…LOL). 

The real story is interest rate hikes across the board. The average mortgage is now costing between 3.75% and 4.25% which means buying power is dwindling. Buyers waiting to buy are finding themselves battling high prices and being priced out of the home they had been looking at just a few weeks earlier. The Fed and the market over-all are expecting even more increases and we could see a 5% loan by the end of the year. If this happens we will see home prices drop to meet buyer demand. Our estimate if as much as -15% by years end. Of course we will need more inventory for all this to really come to fruition. Sellers… NOW IS THE TIME!

Mike Martin and The Elite Partners were a great help in finding our first home , he answered all our questions and was honest on what he could and couldn’t do. When we contacted him he got back to us within a few hours which was great , it made the whole process less stressful and fore the most part pretty easy. We love our new home and would happily recommend Mike and the RE/MAX Elite Partners.

Steve Cohn is an excellent realtor. When my wife and I were buying our first home he was eager to help. He knows and understands the process of buying a home as well as the market very well. Steve and the RE/MAX Elite Partners were responsive and helped us out the whole way through. I will surely use him in the future and have recommended him to a number of people already.

-Melissa & Steve

It was a pleasure to work with Victoria to sell our first home. She was very knowledgeable and helped us through the hole processes. She made sure we understood what was happening and what we needed to do as sellers. If we were staying in the area we would have helped her find our new home as well. She and The Elite Partners were able to refer us to another great agent when we purchased our next home. I highly recommend her if you are looking to buy or sell your home.
