January 2013 Closings, The Sandi Bauman Team at Chico Homes Real Estate Sales

The Sandi Bauman Team Stats for January

Everybody says January is a slow month for sales. We beg to differ. See below.

Many potential sellers have been waiting for the distressed market to run it’s course, so that property values would stabilize and begin to recover. If you’re one of those homeowners, the Chico real estate market finally has good news for you!  Chico prices have improved by about 5.7% in the past 12 months. Combine that with super low interest rates and reduced inventory, and we might be looking at the exact opportunity that many homeowners have been waiting for.

One of the most important decisions a seller has to make, aside from timing, is which Realtor they should entrust to list, market, and negotiate their property.

What is important to consider when partnering with a professional? Do you need a big box, commercialized brand that feels familiar? Will a fleet of agents working for the company instill a sense of confidence? Should the Realtor have the shiniest car in the lot?  Open houses all weekend?  Is their website the deciding factor?  A snazzy name tag?

The Sandi Bauman Team at Chico Homes is a little non-traditional. Some would say that we buck the system a bit. Truth be told, we kind of like it that way, because it works for us and our clients. Because we think outside the box, our compact team packs a serious punch. With one dedicated listing broker, three committed buyer specialists, and three top notch transaction coordinators, we often out-perform the offices with agent counts of 30 or more. We’ve chosen to focus our skills, streamline our systems, and dedicated ourselves to providing a refined service. Perhaps most importantly, we truly CARE that we are doing the best possible job that we know how to do for our clients.

Ready to list?

Year to date, we’ve outperformed our competiton 3 to 1 on the listing side. It would be our pleasure and privilege to make YOUR story OUR next success story.

Chico Is A Seller’s Market!

Historically low interest rates (3-4%) + low inventory = A SELLER’S MARKET.

As of this morning, there are only 153 active single family homes in Chico. Only 34 of those are under $200,000, which is a highly sought after price range. 79 homes sold in December 2012. 22 of those Chico homes sold for under $200k. We only have about 6 weeks of inventory available for buyers, which is considered LOW.

If you’ve been on the fence about putting your property on the market, now might finally be the right time. Lack of inventory in some price ranges is creating multiple offer scenarios on many properties. We’re finding it difficult to get some of our buyers into homes due to the competition with cash offers.

Considering selling? Call Sandi Bauman, the Top Chico Listing Agent for guidance. In 2011, Sandi Bauman and her Team sold more than 170 properties. The average Chico Realtor sold 5. It would be our pleasure and privilege to discuss your unique property. Call 530-864-5407 or email [email protected]
