Weekly Stats – 8/25/16 Santa Clara County and Santa Cruz County

Greetings everyone!  Here we are at the end of August….almost.  The question I always hear form folks who know me well or just meet me is:  What Is happening in the Real Estate market right now?  Good information helps everyone make good decisions.

I am posting weekly stats for both Santa Clara County and Santa Cruz County.  The graphs tell the tale:  In Santa Clara, supply of single family homes is tightening up.  Santa Cruz County is maintaining it’s inventory of single family homes relative to pending sales.  Graphs are below.  Have questions?  I am just a phone call away and happy to help solve your real estate puzzle.

Go Make it a Great One!  Rob

Real Estate Market Stats – 8/5/16

In my effort to keep folks informed about the local Real Estate Market, I post statistics showing both Inventory of homes on the Market and Pending Sales of homes on the Market.  Each graph shows figures for both Single Family Homes and Condo/Townhouses.

See below for stats pulled this week for both Santa Clara County and Santa Cruz County.  Big change from the beginning of summer, is the relational change in Inventory figures over pending sales figures.

Have questions regarding these stats and your home?  I am just a phone call away and happy to help in any way I can.

Go out there and have a great day!
