**Two Active Listings on Market**
and record-high Sales prices...
I'm proud to have listed and SOLD this fantastic 4BR+office,
for $125,550 OVER list price,
Under Contract on its First Weekend on market:
I'm equally proud to have Listed and Sold
SIX other Shadow Hills properties
in the last 18 months:
In every case, the positive reactions from Buyers were Strong, Immediate, and backed up by Fantastic offers.
I'm proud to say that all of my clients received multiple offers,
and CLOSED for well ABOVE their list prices, sometimes far exceeding their expectations.
The key to realizing the greatest return from the sale of your home is positioning it so that it wins multiple offers from competing buyers. I'm proud to have helped my clients here in the neighborhood achieve just that.
In Shadow Hills,
The Numbers Speak for Themselves:
15 Properties have Sold
with a staggering Average Price of
and an unprecedented Median Price of
and closing, on average, over 7% ABOVE list price at time of contract.
While the trend has been pushing upward for the last three years, it seems that price stability may now suddenly be upon us, making the correct positioning and marketing of a new listing crucial to achieving the best possible outcome, as we head into Autumn 2022.
I'm proud to call Shadow Hills home myself, and always happy to talk with neighbors about the market,
and help them understand how it relates to their plans for the future.
By now, everyone's heard that we're in a Seller's Market...
...but what does that mean to you?
as we transition into Autumn, we come off over two years of a Seller's Market without precedent
Shadow Hills is a prime example of what can result when there's a convergence of
increasing buyer power from oft-desperate buyers with record-low interest rates,
and low inventory from which to choose.
Now more than ever, though, it's crucial that homeowners have
an accurate gauge on what's happening in their neighborhood,
...which is why I'm proud to provide this as a resource not only to my neighbors here in Shadow Hills,
but to those who'd love to make their home here too.
Your Shadow Hills "Dashboard"
as of 18OCT2022:
It's been an unprecedented run for Sellers
in Shadow Hills recently;
Sales prices have climbed to new heights,
and demand from Buyers is still strong
TWO Homes listed ACTIVE
ONE under contract
The Key Takeaways from the most recent Market Activity
specific to Shadow Hills:
The unprecedented shortage of available homes has pertained through the year--
For the overwhelming majority of the last 3 Years --
there have been two or less Active listings at any one time, out of a neighborhood of approx 575 existing homes,
That's truly remarkable. Shadow Hills experienced more days in 2021 and 022 when there have been ZERO active listings on market, than we've had days where there've been ANY.
That's almost three years running when buyers--many of whom are focused on Shadow Hills as a priority-- have had almost nothing to offer on, and when they do, very little time to decide.
And this in a period of unprecedented demand, with well-qualified (and some "cash-heavy") buyers from everywhere, hoping to find a home in the Foothills, and Shadow Hills in particular.
What's the result? For the majority of those years, it was that
Multiple buyers were making strong, competing offers in the first days on market.
Of the Seven sellers that I've represented in Shadow Hills over the past two years, ALL of them received multiple offers on their first weekend on market, with ALL closing significantly above their original list price.
While that kind of result seemed almost "normal" in 2021 and 2022, there's been a shift, of late, where more and more foothills properties are sitting on market, and in many cases dropping price, before finding a buyer.
This change is inventory-driven, as rising mortgage interest rates and economic uncertainty over the Summer have combined to take some (but not all!) energy out of previously-manic buyers.
Overall, though, with so few great homes to choose from, there are still Buyers out there who will be eager to offer on well-presented properties in a neighborhood like ours... and still opportunities for Sellers to realize great value when the time is right.

For Buyers interested in Shadow Hills,
the best way to even have a chance at getting a home when they come available
is to have an agent working to show listings as soon as, but ideally even before, they go live to the public.
The competition is just too strong to leave it to chance.

Though this is a Seller's Market--and this point cannot be over-emphasized--it's not as simple as just taking some photos and "putting the sign out."
There's an art to maximizing value and minimizing time on market.
Notably, though, of the 55 homes that sold in Shadow Hills since the start of 2022, 14 of them sold for less than their original list price (some significantly less), and the one property under contract at time of this writing having dropped price before going under contract ... acheiving your best possible return is more Art than Science, and never just a matter of putting a sign out and "hoping for the best".
Marketing your home to key buyers onto its best attributes, and pricing it to maximize its potential value in the market quickly are more art than science. Price too high and you're likely to miss your chance at your best offer, too low and you'll be leaving money on the table. You only get one chance to get it right.
