So Cal Wake Up Call!
The holidays are over and so is the hang over, if there were one! And real estate is kicking butt.
Real estate buyers and sellers are picking up from where they left off before the holidays. Active listings are up by 2% in the 6 counties we monitor and the new listings (7 days or less on the market) are up by 23%. The more encouraging data is highlighted in yellow on the table and that is the ratio of new listings to the active inventory, meaning more listings coming to the market than leaving the market by going under contract or cancelling / expiring. The graphs below show the market trend for activities in each category.
Active Inventory has started a swing in the upward direction at a slow pace.
New Listings Inventory has kept its upward trend from the week before. A good sign for buyers, as it may affect the prices to their advantage.
Older listings’ curve, Listings 100+ Days On The Market, has flattened. Another advantage mark for buyers. With the interest rates as low as they are, those who are thinking of buying, may want to consider taking action now.
Coming Soon Inventory has also shifted upward, a third advantage for the buyers. The bigger inventory on the market, the more competitive sellers will have to be to move their properties.
Closed Listings inventory has gone up slightly compared to the week before. If you notice, it’s the closed transaction that gets the x on all columns on the Advantage Table above, that means, everyone wins when a deal closes. Congratulations and thank you to all parties, sellers, buyers, realtors, lender and the supporting cast, escrow, title, etc.
