Sacramento County resale home sales fell year-over-year for the seventh consecutive month in November.

But the median sales price for all homes in the Sacramento County in November rose 6 percent year-over-year, according to new data from real estate analytics firm CoreLogic.

Sacramento County’s median price was $360,000 for all homes, including condos and new construction. The median for resale homes was $350,000.

In the four-county region, several neighborhoods saw moderate declines in home prices from the previous year. The largest decline in the median sales price for neighborhoods with more than 10 homes sold was in Arden Arcade. Prices dropped in the 95864 ZIP code 23 percent compared to November 2017. The median sales price was $425,000, down from $550,000.

Most of the region’s neighborhoods saw modest year-over-year increases in median home price.

Of the 61 neighborhoods with 10 or more escrows closed in November, 47 saw increases in the median sales price compared to the same month in 2017, although 35 of these increases were less than 10 percent. Fourteen saw declines, only two of which were decreases of more than 10 percent.

The 96161 ZIP code, which includes Truckee, had the largest year-over-year increase. The median resale home price there rose to $1.3 million in 2018, an increase of 27 percent from $1 million in November 2017.
