The drop in home resales volume from October 2009 to 2010 appears to be dramatic.

Irvine home resales are down

Why such a big drop at Irvine home resales during October 2010?

It's probably due in part to the homebuyer government incentives (credits) ramped up last year and now no longer available.  Lots of short sales are now on the market (197) and few are closing escrow (20).  The Irvine Company is selling new homes again this year, and they had nothing on the market during October 2009.  The Orange County economy remains fragile with unemployment about 10%, which makes buyers nervous.  And it's challenging for buyers to get loans these days.

Current Irvine market shows 806 homes listed for resale, and 197 of those are short listings (24.4% of the market). 

Average asking price of Irvine homes for sale is $923,560.  With such large difference between average asking price at Irvine (at $923,560) and October average sold price (at $603,805), some owner/sellers are stubborn or nostalgic.  some sellers are nostalgic


This is information from the Southern California Multiple Listing Service on resale of homes listed is believed valid but not verified.  This does not have data for homes sold off the market, or FSBOs, or at trustee sale auctions after foreclosure.
