Santa Cruz Shelter in Place 2020: Day 61
Yesterday was day 61 of the Shelter in Place here in Santa Cruz and it seems like the real estate market is really picking up! There was a couple houses that I was going to show this weekend and they went pending before I even got the opportunity. So, if you are considering putting your house on the market, or if you’re getting ready to look for houses, don’t hesitate to start now, cause things are really moving.
Also, I just wanted to remind you, that if you wanted to attend my free virtual home buyer’s seminar, with two other industry leaders, Ryan Buckholdt, a lender, and Leslie Alvarez, an escrow officer. We are going to be conducting the seminar THIS SUNDAY from 12-2pm! It should be very informative and will get you feeling confident as your start your journey toward home-ownership!

To reward myself for working so hard on my computer all morning, I went on a social distancing walk on West Cliff with my cousin! And holy macaroni, was it a beautiful day in Santa Cruz! Of course, I couldn’t leave the house without wearing my surgical mask. Since I might go perform surgery at any point along my walk. Disclaimer: I sell real estate in Santa Cruz. I do not perform surgery. I do not even like blood. If Ellia were to get a cut, I would send her right to Danny and he would have to deal with it. I get queasy. And yesterday before Ellia had to do her distance learning, she went outside and rode her skateboard, while Danny commentated. It was pretty entertaining to watch.
Alright, I hope you guys are well! Stay tuned for Day 62 of the Shelter in Place here in Santa Cruz!

Real Estate Update Time: We’ve seen quite a few new listings come on the market this week. We are about 2.7 months of absorption rate. Which means that it would take 2.7 months for all of the inventory that’s on the market right now, to sell. So, that’s still considered a seller’s market. But despite all that, my client who owns 4300 Soquel Drive #226 is wanting to sell now! And we’ve reduced that property to $379,000, which is a really good deal. It’s in Alimur Park, which is a resident owned park, and the home is absolutely stunning with high ceilings, and it’s light and bright. Check out the Queen Bee Home Tour video of this home, which was entirely my daughter’s idea.
If you are currently wondering what the Santa Cruz Housing Market is doing during the Coronavirus Pandemic, feel free to reach out to me. I’d be happy to answer any questions that you may have. But on March 28th, President Trump updated the essential business list and added Residential Real Estate. Meaning, that Realtors are allowed to continue working, while exercising extreme precautions, as mandated by the CDC.
With that being said, if you are currently looking to Buy a Santa Cruz Home, during the Shelter in Place, I would love to assist you in your Santa Cruz Home Search. There is not the usual amount of inventory as we normally see at this time, but mortgage rates are historically low. Now may be a great time to buy, as long as you’re willing to be patient for your dream home to come onto the market.
If you are currently thinking about Selling Your Santa Cruz Home during this Shelter in Place, now may be a great time to put your home on the market. With inventory being low, the demand increases. Meaning, that some homes are seeing multiple offers and bid wars. I’d love to schedule a complimentary and confidential consultation with you to see how Fox Realty Group INC. can creatively market your home!
