Market Stats at 5/20/16

Happy Saturday to all.  Today I am sharing updated market stats for both Santa Clara and Santa Cruz county real estate markets.

Curious what is going on as we round the corner and head into the end of May 2016?  Take a look.  Inventory remains tight in the Santa Clara County market while Inventory levels have increased in the Santa Cruz County Market.

Graphs show inventory and pending sales for Single Family Homes as one category/color combinations (Hot Pink/Navy Blue) and Condominiums/Townhomes (Yellow/Light Turquoise) as the other.
