Napa Valley Real Estate Report October 2018

Napa County’s own economic forecast projects a 3.5% annual population increase through 2022. This means that housing needs are increasing every year, and yet the number of new housing units has grown by less than 1% annually for the past 9 years.

So, the sales price appreciation we have experienced in the City of Napa over the past three years is due in large part to demand outstripping supply.

Single family home prices have risen 5.1% over the past three years while condo/townhomes have risen 5.2%.

Buying property in Napa continues to be a very smart long term investment and personal wealth building opportunity.
