Cardiff Real Estate Market Report for March 2011

Cardiff Homes for Sale - Homes for Sale in Cardiff

As a buyer or seller in the Cardiff real estate market, having information about the current market conditions will enable you to make an informed decision regarding what to do with regard to buying a home in Cardiff, or selling your Cardiff home. 

The Cardiff real estate market is small and very localized, and knowing what is going on with regard to inventory and sales is important for making an informed buying or selling decision. Finding comparables for determining price for either a listing or a purchase can sometimes be tricky because of the limited inventory and the diversity of homes for sale.

The number of homes sold in Cardiff in March doubled over February sales. Two of the detached homes were short sales; of the attached homes 2 were bank-owned and 1 was a short sale. Given the very small number of homes sold, however, it is unwise to draw any conclusions about trends, especially given pricing.

At the end of March 2011 there were 7 homes in the Cardiff real estate market with a Contingent status, 1 more than last month (i.e., short sale and REO homes that had offers being reviewed by the lenders). Until approved these homes are considered active and are included in the Active statistics below. 

As of March 2011 there were 72 Cardiff homes for sale, compared to 56 last month (up 29%). This represents an inventory of only 5.7 months for attached homes (up from 4.3 months in February) and 13 months for detached homes (up from 12.2 months in February). 

25 Cardiff homes came on the market in March, 6 more than last month. 10 homes went pending as compared to 13 in February.

Jeff,

Interesting stats. It kind of looks like a mixed bag to me. I guess you make the best of anything positive.
