Million Dollar Homes in 55 plus retirement communities in Roseville CA???
I had another question after this – and I was pretty sure I knew the answer, but wanted to check. Sure enough, April 2022 was when Sun City Roseville cracked the million dollar ceiling! According to the MLS, the first million dollar Del Webb Sun City Roseville CA home sold on the MLS was in April 2022!
Of course, that led me to one more question…
We are so close to Sun City Lincoln Hills. Often, when I have clients house hunting in our retirement communities in Roseville CA, we also visit Sun City Lincoln Hills, at least once.
So when did Sun City Lincoln break the million dollar ceiling? They do run a bit higher than Sun City Roseville. They left the $400,000s behind in January (not counting their condos) and in April, their lowest price was $510,000 in May, though in April the lowest was $535,000. But what about the Million Dollar mark?
Interestingly, jump back in time with me to November 2005:
- 1 house sold for $1,050,000 in November 2005
- 1 house sold for $1,055,000 in 3/23/07
- 1 house sold for $1,100,000 in 5/13/08
- Then NOTHING over a million sold UNTIL…
- October 16, 2017 when one sold for $1,051,000 (The dates match the market crash/recession).
- After that a couple more broke the million dollar ceiling – for a couple years, then none for a couple years, then several sold for over a million in 2021 and 2022 – including the most recent one on 4/29/22 for $1,050,000.
Over all those years, the highest prices have been two different homes for $1,400,000 – one sold in 2018 and one in April, 2022. Makes me appreciate real estate. It is cyclical. So it can go down. But most of the time it does eventually keep climbing up. Way better than my shares of Kmart stock that are totally worthless!
It also definitely makes me appreciate Roseville and their prices of all our Roseville CA 55 plus communities! How about you? 😊
*NOTE – when it says they didn't get any offers that means they accepted the first one they got. Some were 2 or less days on market, so the odds are good there WOULD have been more offers but the buyers made a great offer from the get-go and the sellers chose not to wait.
So far, prices are still going up although, as expert appraiser Ryan Lundquist has said, there does appear to be some softening now that interest rates are going up, which is making for a challenging market for buyers mixed with a hint of hope.
And it can also be a scary market for many sellers as they wonder, where can I move to? BUT for many other sellers, it can be a GREAT market. This is especially true for many of the sellers I specialize in – boomers and seniors, some of whom are wondering:
- how to downsize my home in our Roseville area and get rid of the stairs
- selling my Roseville area home to move near elderly parents and help them
- Selling my Roseville area home and moving near kids and grandkids so I can help them and/or they can help me
- and more…
And that's especially true for those thinking of moving to less expensive areas!
I would encourage those with family or health needs to seriously consider selling now before inflation, not to mention other issues, turn our sellers' market into a buyers market similar to 2008 – 2017! When you are ready, call me. I would be honored to help you with all your real estate needs and questions.
For those of you looking to buy and ready to retire in Roseville CA, check these out 😊
