It used to be that Riverside was just like any other bedroom community. Its quiet location, proximity to San Diego, and strong school system make it an ideal choice for local commuters, but that just tells a part of the story. Unlike many other of these bedroom suburbs, Riverside is effectively a large city in its own right. That means that Riverside residents rarely need to rely on the services and utilities of a nearby metropolis to support its residents. It also means that more and more young professionals are coming to call Riverside their home. In fact, that centralized location makes Riverside a well-positioned base camp for anyone who wants to explore greater South Carolina more closely. While a number of residents of Riverside do commute, there are plenty of job opportunities within the city itself. Riverside even has its own suburbs in the form of communities like Rancho Cucamonga. Riverside is also a college town, and so it has a healthy community of younger residents and the types of amenities and nightlife necessary for a college town to function. Residents in their 20s won’t have to worry about moving to Riverside and then having to drive hours to find something to do on the weekend.

Questions About Selling a House in Riverside

What’s the housing market like in Riverside?

Also spurring growth among younger people is the reasonably priced real estate in Riverside. The average house sells for just shy of half a million dollars. That puts it well above the national average but actually makes it comfortably affordable for the larger region of southern California. That said, affordability is a trend that looks like it could be shifting. Houses are becoming more expensive, and that signifies a few things. The upside for homeowners looking to sell is obvious. With a 13% rise in overall sale price and a 12% spike in the cost of square footage, there are strong signs that the market will be shifting in the next few years to support more well-heeled inhabitants. Of course, there is a decent sense of variety in a city as large as Riverside. The city is broken down into a number of important neighborhoods, and each has distinct advantages that make them well suited to specific communities. The rural expanse of Arlington Heights and the cosmopolitan downtown juxtaposes the experiences that Riverside offers in clear and discreet terms.

How old are the houses in Riverside?

Riverside’s been around for around 150 years, and the city has done a great job of preserving the historically important houses. Over a half dozen different neighborhoods have been designated for historic preservation, and the sort of architectural styles they cover is vast. These historic houses cover a span of time from the 1880s to the 1930s, and there’s an enthusiastic level of variety in the houses that have been preserved. But not all the houses in Riverside are old. Outside of the historic districts, progress continues at a steady pace. And with its population steadily rising, Riverside will continue to prominently feature new condos and apartments that can better suit the budgets and needs of a variety of residents.

How long does it take to sell a house in Riverside?

The process of selling a house in Riverside is actually a little quicker than the national average. While a typical house will sell within about 30 days, the average for selling a house in Riverside is just 27.5 days. Just keep in mind that isn’t necessarily taking into account complications like renovations. If you really need to sell a house quickly, services like Sundae can give you an advance nearly immediately and get you paid for your home within ten days.

What is the best time to sell a house in Riverside?

Sit on your house for the front house of the year and sell it in the back half. That’s good advice for most real estate markets but particularly salient to Riverside. On average, a house sold in the first six months will sell under market value, while a house sold in July through December will sell over the valuation. If you really want to maximize your money, the ideal dates fall in the front half of May, and the most promising day is Friday.

What taxes do I pay when selling a house in Riverside?

The amount of taxes you have to pay will really depend on how savvy you are—and how much money you make. Federal, state, and city taxes are levied in a home sale, and some of the biggest expenses come from capital gains. Fortunately, the IRS tends to be sympathetic to capital gains, and some buyers will be able to write off capital gains completely.

What’s the fastest way to sell a house in Riverside?

The fastest way to sell a house is to call in a professional who understands both the local market and the real estate business at large. If you really want to sell your house as quickly as possible, consider services like Sundae, which will buy your house as-is and deal with all the risks and complications personally.

“The sale off the house went just like they said it would. There associates were friendly and helpfull. Could not ask for much more thank you”

Hayes Galitski

Claremont, CA

“From our first contact through closing, Sundae was upfront, transparent, and professional. Ben Ginsberg was personable and thoroughly explained the process and basis for the offer he was authorized to extend to us - on the spot! This was after he toured our home, taking approximately 60 pictures and forwarding them to Sundae's design/sales/assessment team in realtime. The offer was reasonable, we didn't need to make any repairs or improvements, and we were able to negotiate our closing date to accommodate our needs. In short, the process was simple and straightforward; exactly as described by Sundae. If you're thinking of selling your home and don't want the hassle of listing, making repairs, and having showings, check out Sundae - you've got nothing to lose!”

Miles Beauchamp

LaMesa, CA

“We needed to move mom to an assisted living center and so many things were going on with the planning etc. The last thing we needed was to try and sell a house. Sundae made it simple and easy, transparent the whole way, and it worked seamlessly.”


Lincoln, CA

“Transaction was clean. Not happy with the lowball bid, based on an old listing, then they sell it above market, but that is the cash/flip business. Was a little disappointed with communication during the transaction, but they met all agreed timelines. You should consider them, if your economic needs dictate this type of transaction. They are really pretty good with follow through.”

Renee Reyes

Los Angeles, CA

“I'm so happy I choose Sundae to sell my house to. They were very friendly & easy to deal with. Very straightforward & made the whole process simple. Kevin kept me posted throughout the entire process. I felt I got the best offer for this kind of sale. Not having to deal with open houses or doing any repairs was exactly what I needed. And not having to pay any fees at all was fantastic, especially in the middle of a pandemic.”

Amparo Navalta

“Reliable & accommodating”
