SENIOR REAL ESTATE SPECIALIST~With a full Concierge of Services...While I just received the SRES Designation recently...I can't help but to laugh-as it isn’t as though any of this is foreign to me-Given that I am also a member of the 50+ club!! :) and a Caretaker for my older family members...though now, I can call myself a Specialist-it was quite an intense class, if I do say myself.We all know-there is quite a bit to consider as we Age... talking to some of my friends about it-I found, some of us prefer to just swipe it all, right under the rug...Myself included…some-times…Which is part of the reason I wanted to take the Course...Now I don't have to-and now I can share my expertise-with YOU!I learned more about all Generations, and “Life Stages”, about 21st Century Retirement, about t...

This year started out hot but with the increases in interest rates, as with the rest of the country, it has affected us here in El Dorado Hills as well.  Here is a look at what was selling in El Dorado Hills in October 2022 with the high and low home sales along with sales statistics for the month.  Keep in mind that numbers and statistics used here reflect MLS sales only. Very few of the new construction homes come through the MLS.  Highest Selling Home - The highest selling home in El Dorado Hills for October 2022 was a beautiful custom-built two story home on Corsica Dr. in the Bella Lago neighborhood at the Promontory. It was built in 2022 on .56 acres with approximately 5005 sq. ft., 7 bedrooms, and 5 bathrooms. It offered 12' coffered ceilings, a huge gourmet kitchen with a butler...

A RECESSION DOES NOT EQUAL A HOUSING CRISIS FOLKS!!!I know this looks a bit long winded-but it is packed full o’ facts-I hope you will take the time to read 😊I have been asked a few times recently, “Where is the Market headed?”Many, are concerned by what they have been hearing on the news…I hope to put to rest, some-if not all of your concerns-Right here, and now 😊#1-A Recession does NOT equal a Housing Crisis-No need to fret over what is nothing more than FAKE news, or just know-It simply is not the complete message.I have seen, and personally experienced many “ups” and “downs” in the more than 3 decades, that I have been a Realtor/Real Estate Counselor…I make sure to do the appropriate research-and have access to the right people (Top Local Economists/Appraisers), so as to properly co...

It's been a while since I've done a post on looking back at our market but with all the concern that we are heading into a market like the catastrophic market of 2007 and 2008, I thought it was time.   Keep in mind that these numbers do not include new construction listings unless they have been listed on the MLS. Active, Pending and Sold ListingsAverage Price Per Square Foot of Closed HomesDay on Market - List/Sale Price RatioAverage Price For Sale and Sold Months of InventoryAs you can see, things are not even close to the same. If you have questions on any of this or would like to get an idea of your home's value, please reach out!

Before you decide to consider the likes of Open Door, Zillow, or ANY other Online entity, that offers to buy Your home-with NO stress, NO repairs-Oh, and with you doing nothing but hold your hand out for your proceeds...Call your Local Realtor…Not a bad idea to call one that has been in the business for more than 3 decades either 😊Seriously folks…YOU deserve to get everything possible, out of the sale of your home…after all, you only have one opportunity to do it right…YOU owe it to yourself, to be sure you have all the facts, before making such an important decision.If one really saves thousands of dollars in commissions-Don’t you think, more Home Sellers would choose this option?  Yes, they would…There is a reason, they are not. Before you make a decision to consider this route-Please...

The top news stories start with the word “RECESSION” lately…well, not today-Today, the top news is whether or not our President can ride a bike! Ha 😊 And apparently the answer is Nooooo—Now onto this conversation of a looming Recession in the housing market in 2022.Seriously folks-nothing happening in our market today is anything like it was prior to 2010…let alone into 2012.  This is not where the market is headed-please talk to a Professional, before you take yourself out of the market-even if that Professional isn’t me…Wendi-Mae Video Part 1 on Recession? of 2022KEEP IN MIND WHEN YOU LISTEN TO THE NEWS-SOME OF IT IS HYPE, a lot of it is Nationwide, NOT about your Local marketplace-and that makes a difference-Keep in mind when the subject is about a recession...SOME AREAS WILL NOT BE ...

The mortgage-bond giant said it expects the new pool to be available in October.The pool must also be authorized by the Federal Housing Agency and other agencies whose programs are the basis for loans through Ginnie Mae, said Michael Drayne, Ginnie Mae acting executive vice president, in a press release.“We have begun the work to make this security product available, because an extended term up to 40 years can be...

Inventory in El Dorado Hills has been slowly dropping over the last few years but what's new for all of us is the demand that has risen since the COVID shut down in March 2020. Here is a look at our market stats for January 2021. I send these out to my clients here in El Dorado Hills every month.  When I send them out, I also break them down by price range as it does vary. If you would like to be on my list to receive them, email me at driley@golyon.com. A few more things to note:* If you are interested in your home value, I am here to help and can easily do a property review for you.*If you are thinking about making a move, call me and let's look at your options.*Interest rates are below 3% so if you have a rate 3.75% or above you should talk to your lender and see if re-financing make...

It was a heck of a year for real estate across the country especially with the uncertainty of the shut down in March. Things slowed for a few weeks but came back with a fury. The 2020 Real Estate Market for El Dorado Hills ended with 61% fewer homes for sale and the average home selling price up over 30% compared to December 2019. Here is a look at our year end stats and what was selling in El Dorado Hills in December 2020  with the high and low home sales along with sales statistics for the month and a look back at 2019.  Keep in mind that numbers and statistics used here reflect MLS sales only. Very few of the new construction homes come through the MLS.  As long as our total inventory remains low, I believe our home prices will continue to rise in 2021. Our demand far exceeds our sup...

 Prop 90 may just be coming back to El Dorado County-Maybe even State wide!Now called “The Home Protection for Seniors, Severely Disabled, Families and Victims of Wild Fire or Natural Disaster Act"-ACA 11. (Short version/title is the "Prop 13 Tax Portability Act".)The CA. State Legislature has passed a strong Bi-Partisan Measure (Assembly Constitutional Amendment 11) Co-Sponsored by the California Association of Realtors (C.A.R.) and the Professional Firefighters that is poised to be placed on the November ballot.This Act builds on CAR’s original initiative, Prop 5, that unfortunately did not pass the majority vote…this new Act strengthens the provisions CAR/My Association cares about most-Incorporates dedicated funding for fire protection and emergency response, to safeguard millions o...

LOOK NO FURTHER!! I HAVE JUST THE BROKER FOR YOU...INSURANCE CARRIERS FOR EL DORADO COUNTY!!! Finally! I have been a Realtor/Broker and Real Estate Counselor for more than 30 years, of which I have resided in and primarily worked in El Dorado County, for the last 20 of those years.  It has become increasingly difficult to find Insurance in our fine County-and often times, you find a policy, just to have them drop you soon after, or try to tack on the "Fair Plan"...Many have had their policies triple in cost upon renewal, or have been dropped.I don't know about you, but I don't feel there is anything too "Fair" about that plan...thankfully, eventhough Farmers Insurance told me I would have to apply for the Fair Plan through the State-I was able to drop them-and said Plan, and have been B...
