Market Trends - Redwood City, CA Real Estate - January 10, 2020

Below are the real estate trends for SF Bay Homes. The trend numbers are from the local Multiple Listing Service (MLS). The real estate trends are for Redwood City,CA. You can adjust the numbers accordingly to accommodate your own community. It’s simple, however, if you find it difficult you can call/text/email me. I would be more than happy to assist you.

For the past several years the real estate trends have favored home sellers. There doesn’t seem to be any let-up on this trend for the rest of the year. And, continue through most of 2020. The good news for home buyers is that rates on loan for home buyers have stayed the lowest in decades and should continue down for the rest of 2019 and throughout 2020.

Shifting Trends

Redwood City CA: We are seeing softening of the average sale price for homes settling in Redwood City. And the length of time on the market for homes to sell still favor Sellers. The Sale Price vs List Price ratio is up. Last week it was 10.7%! The months of inventory available for homes continues to be as it usually is during the Holidays. Which translate to more homes for buyers to choose from. 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 home inventory remains almost nil. If you’re a home buyer NOW is the time to beat the Spring rush and more competition. You’ve got until Super Bowl Sunday before the rush.

We are seeing an uptick of home prices being reduced or cancelled and being relisted at a reduced price. This has been unheard of for the past few years. This is forcing home sellers to price their homes in line to their true market value.

This proprietary information is provided by Cliff Keith, of SF Bay Homes with data from the local Multiple Listing Service, (MLS) MLSListings. The criteria use for these numbers is based on Year to Date, (YTD) figures.
