California Real Estate Value

With the real estate values in California steadily decreasing in today’s housing market, now is the time to buy property in the Golden State.

Are you wondering “what’s my house worth?”

A few years ago, things were quite a bit different. Real estate in California was increasing ALL THE TIME. Today, it does not look like real estate values in California will stop dropping anytime in the near future.

If you want to find your property value in California, you will definitely want to consult a local real estate agent before deciding whether or now is the right time. If you purchased your home well before our country got involved in the “housing bubble,” you could still make out pretty good on a sale. Temper your expectations, of course… this isn’t 2005! But real estate values in California are definitely higher now than they were 10 or 15 years ago.

To get a better idea of where property values in California currently stand, work with a local real estate agent. Only real estate agents have their finger on the pulse of the current real estate market in your area of California. While online services can provide pretty charts and comparables value ranges based on recent sales and tax data, they don’t know what’s happening in your personal house.

Now that you know more about California home values, you will be able to make a better decision as to whether or not you want to sell or buy property, and whether to do so now or later. Think about it, talk to a real estate agent, and do not jump right into a decision.
