I have been sharing with you that the forecast for the year is fewer sales but slightly higher prices. Well, the Napa Register reported today that is exactly what we saw in the month of April. As real estate was deemed an essential business and Realtors got back to work, there have been fewer sales but prices remain higher than a year ago. I am seeing multiple offer situations for specific neighborhoods and price ranges. Many listings are holding firm on their prices while taking a bit longer to sell. Buyers hoping for pandemic bargains are finding just the opposite.
I am proud to have my listing at 1441 Sycamore St. featured in this article. It highlights the outstanding work of my team: Sergio Guerrero, Contractor; Lori Bitter of Dalia Staging and Darren Loveland, Photographer. It helps that the seller and I priced the house at Napa County’s median price for April of $675,000. ;)

The local real estate market continues to be on fire! This week I launched this turn key 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom house in an ideal location in downtown Napa.
The savvy downtown buyer will be thrilled with this corner lot in a central location. This idyllic home offers all the character and curb appeal of Old Town yet boasts updates to enjoy the comfortable, effortless Napa lifestyle. This is a turn key home: newly painted interior with hardwood floors, new windows, granite countertops, & new ductless HVAC system. The exterior has been completely renovated with a brand new roof, new paint, new fences, and all new landscaping including concrete work, irrigation and drainage.
Offered at $765,000.
I also handed off the keys to first time home buyers who wrote an offer site unseen during the initial lockdown. Our offer beat out two other hopeful buyers who had never seen the house. The day after the offer was accepted, shelter in place orders allowed the showing of vacant properties and luckily they still loved it. Their local lender, Scott Whitlock, and I saw through this sale during unprecedented times. We were all thrilled to celebrate together!
Now that you have spent more time than ever in your home, perhaps you are thinking about making a change. Let’s talk through the options.
The last two weeks in Napa real estate have been intense. A deluge of buyers have descended with minimal inventory since the shelter in place orders were revised to allow Realtors to show occupied properties.
My listing at 1441 Sycamore St. launched last Sunday and we accepted an offer with a back up in just three days! Buyers came from the south bay, San Francisco and locals too. Are people seeking homes in less densely populated cities?
While showing property to out of state clients on Saturday who are moving for a new job, it became increasingly difficult to make a plan as properties were sold even the day they went on the market. Bidding wars are back and sellers are holding on to their desired prices.
If you would like to see a snapshot of activity in your neighborhood, direct message me and I will send you the latest. Thinking of selling or right sizing your home now that you’ve spent so much time in it? Let’s discuss what makes sense.
Growing up in Napa I learned the value of community. I strive to serve the neighborhoods that I grew up in and the people who desire to make Napa their home. I help people connect to the community of Napa with a focus on continuing to build the unique community of Napa and my belief that home is where your story begins.
