So far the month of June, in regards to Redwood City real estate, continues to do like it has throughout 2013. Homes have sold faster than new home replacing them. Last week we saw 18 new homes and 52 homes removed from the market. Months of inventories continue in a steady down trend along with the number of days it takes a home to sell. The price per square foot is still above the $600 mark. The average sale price of a home stays above the one million dollar mark.

Redwood City homes newly listed for sale; stay the same as last week number of 18. Housing’s months of inventory for home buyers continues to trend down. There has been a steady increase of inventories since the middle of March 2013, however that trends is steady-going down, which means there are fewer homes to choose from for home buyers in Redwood City.

The average selling price (ASP) for homes sold has stayed steady hovering around the $1.050M since the end of March. Last week we saw the ASP slightly go down to a level of $1,027,909.

The total number of new listings, including transaction falling through (TFT), and back on the market (BOM) homes dipped to 18.  While the number of homes with pending sales, or ones who had removed all their contingencies and were ready to close escrow jumped by 30% to 31 homes. Closed escrows homes number was 21, which was the same as last week. What is interesting is there were NO short sales and only 1 REO’s brought to the market. Redwood City has only seen 2 REO and zero short sales in the past 30 days. This will not last because there is a huge source of homes being held by the banks and they are not releasing them to the market, which will give them a higher profit margin.

The sale price to list price ratio (SP:LP), was up from last week’s to 105.1%. May 2013 ended at 107.5%, April ended at 106.3%, March ended at 101.3%, and February’s ended at 101.3%. January ended at 99.8%, 2012’s highest ratio was 106.2%,

The average number of days for a home to sell in Redwood City was 15 up by 3 days from last week’s 12. The lowest 7 days in 2013 was 11 days during April 26-May 3. The beginning of 2013 started out with taking 56 days for a home to sell. Homes are still selling quickly. Advice: If you see a home you like today, buy it! If you don’t tomorrow may be too late.

The future trend for the average price per square foot looks like it has broken through the $600 ceiling and doesn’t show sign of going under it. The price for last week was $615 down $25.00. 2013 sq. ft. prices were: May; $611, April; $558, March; $599, February; $571, January; $565.00. 2012 ended at $455.00.

Home buyers are looking for value when buying, including a home in good condition. Sellers however want the highest price, in the shortest time, with the least hurdles. Home buyers and sellers have satisfied their needs because they are agreeing on price and terms, and homes are selling.
