Market Trends Redwood City real estate February 22, 2013

The spring real estate market is starting off on a flat note and it doesn’t look like it will be moving up any time soon. All numbers for Redwood City real estate are flat for the past 7 days, Redwood City homes coming on the market for sale dropped to 12 from 14 last week. The housing months of inventory available in Redwood City increased to this week of 8.4 months. This is good if you are a home buyer because there’re is more selections of homes to choose. I think you will see this continue in 2013.

The average selling price for homes sold in Redwood City jumped this past week to $1M from the previous week price of $ 1.1M. The total number of new listings, and homes added to the choices available to home buyers from transactions falling out of escrow was 12.  While the number of homes with pending sales, or had removed all their contingencies and were ready to close escrow was 18 which is the up from last week’s number of 11. Closed escrows homes was 9, which was up by 4 from last week.
