Misery loves company, or so the saying goes. It’s the only explanation for the dismal outlook many folks have when discussing the Chico real estate market. While it’s true that prices have come down from the record highs of 2005 and 2006, it’s safe to say that we fared pretty well compared to many of our California neighbors. If Chico Realtors have said it once, we’ve said it a million times: REAL ESTATE IS LOCAL!
