Being a Realtor and a long time fixture in the Town of Yountville for nearly the past 40 years, the number one question I get asked by friends, acquaintances and many people I get introduced to is how is the real estate market here. I know the numbers fairly closely from my day to day involvement in real estate, but I felt it was time to do an factual analysis from the actual numbers reported in my MLS, BAREIS.
Below is a six year comparsion for Yountville residential sales comparing apples to apples. When looking at the decrease in number of sales and median sales price from the highest year for both, the number of sales is down 21.7% from 2007 and the median sales price is down 23.8% form 2005. Not bad for compared to many other areas in California where these numbers are closer to 50%.
