Sellers did much better in Saturnia in 2019. A total of 29 homes closed for the year. There are only eight homes left for sale at this writing, down from 20 in early July.
The highest price of the year was $790,000 for 19196 Natures View Court, a 5-bedroom. Five other homes sold above $750,000. Most of these top priced homes have around 4700 square feet. In 2018 the highest sale price was $735,000.
At the bottom, two homes on Skyridge Circle sold at $495,000, and $500,000. The latter, described in the listing as a fixer-upper, is a 5-bedroom with over 4000 square feet. This is also an improvement from 2018 when the lowest prices were $465,000 and $470,000.
The most interesting transaction was 19565 Havensway Court, which sold for $775,000 with just 3500 square feet. The house has been beautifully remodeled and sits on a cul de sac lot.
Two more homes sold over $700,000. 19492 Saturnia Lakes Drive went for $745,000 with 6 bedrooms in 4700 square feet. The smaller 19594 Saturnia Lakes Drive, selling for $725,000, has 5 bedrooms in 3600 square feet.
Seven homes sold for prices from $640,000 to $670,000. Five of these have around 3200 square feet. The two others with 4700 square feet each included a bank-owned home and a short sale.
With the low inventory at the moment and improved pricing compared to 2018, it looks like 2020 should be a much better year for sellers.

It’s not all good news. The highest active listing is priced at $785,000. The 4700 square foot home at 11827 Bayfield has been on the market for over three months in its current listing. It first went on the market in 2017 for $929,000. It’s a beautiful home in a great location, but for some reason it just doesn’t seem to sell. It might sell quicker if the bathrooms were remodeled.
11788 Bayou Lane is the lowest priced home for sale at the moment at $510,000. It has four bedrooms and three baths in 2800 square feet with another good lot location. Originally listed at $565,000, it has been on the market for four months.
