This week’s Almaden Valley real estate market numbers are virtually unchanged from last week. The total number of available properties on the market dropped from 65 last week to 64 this week, while the percentage under contract dropped slightly, from 38% to 37%.
Traditional (ie non-distressed) properties remained unchanged, with 54 available properties and 30% under contract. As we enter the last month of the year, it is likely that this trend will continue through December as we pass through our traditional, anticipated holiday market cooling period.
The number of listings on the market in Almaden Valley dropped from 72 last Monday to 65 this Monday, while listings under contract increased from 34% to 38% during the same time frame. Traditional (ie non-distressed) listings dropped from 63 to 57 and the percentage under contract increased from 28% to 30% from last Monday.
The Almaden Valley real estate market continued to decrease slightly in what is most likely the normal seasonal slow-down we see every year at this time. The total number of single family homes for sale decreased from 74 last week to 72 this week, while the percentage of properties under contract dropped from 35% to 34% over the same time. Traditional (ie non-distressed) homes experienced the same trend, from 65 single family home for sale last Monday to 63 today, and the percentage under contract dropping from 29% to 28% over the same time. The interest rates offered by some banks dropped slightly. Although buyers are still being lured by the historically low interest rates, it remains to be seen if the rates will motivate buyers to act during the holiday season when we usually see a slowdown in sales.
This past week saw a slight improvement in the Almaden Valley real estate market from the previous week. The total number of single family homes currently for sale decreased from 80 to 77, while the percentage of properties that are under contract increased slightly, from 35% to 36%. The number of traditional (ie non-distressed) single family homes currently for sale dropped from 71 to 68, and the number under contract remained at the 30% we saw last week.
Interest rates from some banks edged upward slightly, but still remain an attractive incentive for buyers to make the jump from looking at homes to purchasing them.
