Los Altos California Real Estate Trend

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Cupertino

An overview of Los Altos Single Family Real Estate market of April 2008 compared to April 2009 shows some interesting economic changes:

1.) The Los Altos homes inventory rose to 132 this year from last year’s 65. The sold homes are a little less then last year. Last April sold 24 homes and this April is 11.

2.) The average Los Altos homes price is still on the down turn. This year’s sold price is $1,574,000 vs. last years’ $2,050,114. The median sales onLos Altos homes has dropped also from $1,760,404 to this year $1,500,000.

3). It would take 60 days this year to sell a Los Altos home but last year would be only 29 day. From all the numbers we can tell there are more homes for sale and less of them actually sold. The home prices have modestly drifted downwards. Los Altos continues to attract the qualified buyers who are looking for good schools, and the quality of life.

Hi Grace and fellow CRS,

Interesting info, I'm somewhat surprised. I'd say our inventory is just about the opposite, more in 08 than 09. Even with the decline in prices, you still have a much higher value than so many other places.

Hi Grace.  Sorry to hear your market is still trending down.  I'm doubly sorry because most say that the Hawaii market trails behind the CA market.

My sister was just visiting from Los Altos.  She and her husband were saying that things seemed to be selling - signs were going down and people were moving in.  I'll give them your info - thanks for the post.  (No, they aren't selling right now - just watching the market.)
