California Home Sales Stuck in the Doldrums

doldrums

  • Sales are down 13.1% from July
  • Median price falls 1.2%

I have excerpted this from Property Radar. I’ll give you a link at the bottom so you can read the entire report.

CALIFORNIA, SEPTEMBER 22, 2015 – California single-family home and condominium sales fell 13.1 percent to 36,733 in August from 42,261 in July but were up 3.1 percent from 35,613 in August 2014. Driving the increase in year-over-year sales was the 6.4 percent increase in non-distressed property sales.

“While we had a couple of strong months this year, August sales are a clear reminder that CA sales are still quite weak,” said Madeline Schnapp, Director of Economic Research for Property Radar. “Year-to-date sales volumes are lower than 4 of the last 6 years, only slightly better than 2007, and far below pre-crisis volumes.”

California Median Home Prices and Sales Retreat in May

said on June 24th, 2015 filed under: Localism, Market Trends

I am pasting this market update from “Property Radar,” a newsletter I have subscribed to for years.

California Median Home Prices and Sales Retreat in May
Median Home Prices Fall 1.8 Percent to $396,750,
Sales Down 3.5 Percent

“With the exception of a few counties, price increases have slowed considerably. You cannot defy gravity. The environment of rising prices on lower sales volumes was destined not to last. Higher borrowing costs since the beginning of the year and decreased affordability was bound to impact sales sooner or later. We may also be seeing the fourth year in a row where prices jumped early in the year, only to roll-over and head lower later the rest of the year.”

This is exactly what I have been seeing lately in Nevada County and Lake of the Pines.

The Real Estate AVID

Can the findings from the AVID be used by the buyer in negotiating a Request for Repairs? Answer at the end of the article. continue reading…
