Cliff’s Viewpoint:

Seller’s Market

Redwood City CA: We are seeing changes in the average sale price for homes settling in around the mid to high $1.7 range. And the length of time on the market for homes in 2019 is moving upwards. These trends still favor home sellers as the changes are not severe. The Sale Price vs List Price ratio is down from 2018 and is hovering in 2.1% – 3.0% the last month or so.  The months of inventory available continues to less than 2 months. Which translate to more scarcity of homes for buyers to choose. The number of new homes brought on the market for sale is maintaining equal amounts as the number of homes sold. The growth of new homes are almost nillWe are seeing home prices being reduced in price or cancelled and being relisted at a reduced price. This has been unheard of for the past few years. This is making home sellers they need to price their homes more in line to their true values.

The raw numbers

New listings (8 homes) came on the market for sale. Still low inventories, (99 homes: 55 Active and 44 Pending), which is even more favorable for home sellers then in June 2019.  This month, price reduction on homes (18), this past week 4 vs. 31 for the month of May. April had 14. Costs per square foot has remained stable for the past 10 months. The benchmark of $1000/sq.ft. has been consistent for all of 2018/9. The past week the price was $1080/sq ft.

Home Prices for Redwood City new homes remained level. They have been closing escrow in the range of $1.6- $1.7 for 2017 and 2018. Last week the Average Sale Price in RWC was $1,824,532

Last week 8 new homes were listed over one million dollars. The means 100% of the homes listed last week for sale were listed for over $1M! In Redwood City there are 7 homes (87.27%) for sale under $1M!

Basic Real Estate Truism:

Question: When is the perfect time to purchase your home?

Answer: Today is the correct answer! If you said yesterday you were correct, however, too bad those prices are gone. I don’t see any let up on the current strong demand for homes either. I believe this trend will continue to be supported of upward, at least for the rest of 2018.

 Open Houses stay alert.

When you go to a Sunday Open Houses in Silicon Valley you will see Redwood City real estate agents, and many home buyers looking at the homes along with you. The home buyers from the tech industry like  Oracle, Electronic Arts, Google, Facebook, Intel, Box, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Buffer are out in full force, along with the bio-tech home-buyers from companies like; V Biosciences, Abbott Vascular, AbGenomics, and Genotech ready to place offers on their new homes. And, they all seem to have large sums of discretionary income to spend too.

As you can see the real estate market in Redwood City is still very strong and homes are selling faster and receiving higher priced offers.

What is the “get-around”?
