Last week we tabled the question as to whether the real estate market may be starting to slow a bit from the break-neck pace that we’ve seen all year. Certainly, last week’s numbers were less than stellar in comparison to the rest of the year’s seemingly unstoppable numbers. But we also noted that one week’s worth of data does not constitute a trend.
The most recent week’s data rebounded nicely on almost all fronts. The most telling statistic was that 8 homes went into contract, which shows that buyers are still out there in big numbers. Another good statistic was that 7 new listings hit the market, which indicates that sellers have no trepidation about bring their home on the market in the Fall. This will serve to keep the market chugging along.
The one indicator that was down this past week was the sales price/list price ratio. This has been running at about 110% on average for most of the year. This past week, homes that closed escrow in San Carlos fetched 99% of the asking price on average. It’s hard to say whether this is just a function of more realistic asking prices, or if the sales figures are starting to level off, but it’s worth keeping an eye on in the coming weeks.
Here are the numbers from last week:
