Highest Priced Home $ 2,250,000
Average $ 399,900
Active Listings 116
Sold This Week 2

WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU: You now have more information about what's happening with the SAN DIMAS REAL ESTATE MARKET so you can make an informed decision on whether this city is right for you and if the prices fit into your budget. The last blog had the average price in SAN DIMAS at $425,000 and this week that average has dropped to $399,900.
The other thing you can learn from this information is the saturation rate of the existing active real estate listings. The saturation rate is determined by the amount of sales in a week and the number of listings available for sale. So in this case, there are 116 homes being actively marketed by Realtors for sale. If you divide those 116 by the number of homes sold this week, in this case two, you have your saturation rate. This means that if you placed your home on the market to sell you can expect it to take a little over 58 weeks to complete the sale of your home. That is if no other listings come into the real estate marketplace during that time. And we all know how likely that is, now don't we... In fact this past week there were five new listings.
HOW THIS AFFECTS YOU: If your price is competitive and your home is in relatively decent shape you can have it sold in as little as one day or as much or more than the 58 weeks. It also depends on the agent you are using. The more aggressive your agent's marketing plan is for your home, the more exposure your home gets and you can see that would have a great impact. On the other hand, if you use someone who merely puts your home on the MLS and does nothing more, it will most likely take a little more time to sell.
If you are a buyer, this means you have a large selection to choose from and you have a better chance right now of getting an offer accepted. Not to mention that the average home price has dropped in the last month making you as they buyer able to afford a better home.

Lowest $ 165,000
Highest $ 369,000
