The first lots to reach the market since the October fires swept through Mark West Estates, Larfield Estates, Berrybrook, and the golf course subdivision appeared on the MLS near the end of November. The first two lots are both in the Berrybrook subdivision west of Old Redwood Highway and south of Mark West Springs Road. They are in the closest subdivision to Sutter Hospital. A long standing rule of thumb in real estate has been that the lot represents about a third of the value of the finished house. Obviously, this will vary according to the size of the property and the neighborhood, but it’s a useful starting point. Nobody was certain what the fire would do that guideline, but these first lots are in the ballpark.
