Real Estate Market Stats – Santa Clara and Santa Cruz Counties

The number one question I am always asked is “what is the real estate market doing right now?”  I truly believe our market is the best example of a true, real time model of free market economics.  As I have in the past, I am posting a couple of graphs showing data for both the Santa Clara and Santa Cruz Counties.  Each graph shows one set of stats is for the Condo/Townhouse market and another for the Single Family Home market.

Take a look.  Have questions.  I am just a phone call away and always willing to help dissect the myriad of market information out there so you understand exactly where you are within your current situation.

Go make it a great one!
