(SACRAMENTO, CA) – Selling season remained in full bloom as Sacramento, Placer, Yolo and El Dorado counties logged a combined 2,769 new open escrows during the month of May.

This information was provided by Trendgraphix and reported by Pat Shea, President of Lyon Real Estate.
The median sales price closed out May at the post-recession high of $312,000 compared to a meager $185,000 at the end of 2011. “Distressed properties and investor activity were still the norm back then,” said Shea. “Approximately 85% of the current sales transactions are equity sellers looking to buy again.”
