Prices continue to appreciate at a steady rate, from October 2014 to October 2016, home values appreciated 24% or 1% per month, that is an incredible rate of return. Part of the reason for this dramatic increase is the lack of inventory. From October 2014 to October 2016 the inventory of available homes for sale, decreased by 50%.

We are definitely in a seller’s market and sellers are receiving multiple offers and some offers are over the asking price. The available inventory is down to 1.6 months, a decline in inventory from Sept 2014 of 58%.

With interest rates at historic lows, there is a very strong demand for housing in the Merced and Atwater area.  The vacancy rate for rental homes and apartments is less than 2 percent.

In conclusion demand is very strong, for both Single Family Residences, to purchase and properties to rent.
