I am working on a purchase loan in Sacramento for about two weeks. And the value is 10k lower. It's about 4% lower than purchase price. It was so hard for us to get most of the conditions cleared when the borrowerswere on the cruise. Now It's up to the buyer/seller to decide this transation.
Another purchase loan in stockton, the value is 7k(about 5%) lower. Borrower wants to ask seller to lower the price; Another in Sacramento, appraisal value 4k lower, seller lowered the price.
Seems like the value trend in Sacramento, Stock areastill going down, maybe for another year.
It's hard to tell whether lower value is good or bad. For those whoes seller willing to lower the price isgood; for others, borrower will either havemore down payment or back out the deal.
