Real Estate Market Trends - December 13, 2019Cliff’s Viewpoint:

Seller’s Market


Redwood City CA: During this time of year…Thanksgiving through Super Bowl Sunday we see a 40% – 60% decrease in real estate activity. This trend has continued for 2019. The only increase is the Average Sale Price which is the highest of the year, $ 1,995,375.

We are seeing also seeing a reduction of home offer for public viewing on Sunday Open Houses. One good trend for homebuyers is 34% of homes brought on the market for sale last week were under $1M thresh-hold.

The raw numbers

New listings (6 homes) came on the market for sale. Still low inventories, (96 homes: 68 Active and 28 Pending), which is even more favorable for home sellers. Costs per square foot has remained stable for the past 12 months. The benchmark of around $1000/sq.ft. has been consistent for all of 2018/9. Last week it was $936/ sq. ft..

Home Prices for Redwood City new homes remained above the $1.7 M level. Homes have been closing in the price range of $1.6- $1.8 for 2017 and 2018. Last week the Average Sale Price jumped in RWC to $1,995,375

Last week 4 new homes of 6 homes were listed over one million dollars. The means 66% of the homes listed last week for sale were listed for over $1M!

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.

Real Estate Market Trends - December 13, 2019When 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.
