Silicon Valley Homes

The Market Barometer is a rough estimate of the state of the market. Real estate markets are very local. Regardless of whether the market favors buyers or sellers, there will always be premium homes priced right that attract multiple offers, unless of course the market has totally crashed! Conversely, there are always over-priced listings that will never sell.

  • The Market Barometer compares homes sold to homes newly listed.
  • The following thresholds are used: +0.10 to indicate a Sellers market and -0.10 to indicate a Buyers market. A balanced market is anything in between and is indicated by the gray columns.

If you are Facing Foreclosure - understand your options.

Don't wait until you're out of time. Avoid Foreclosure.

Kathleen - Another good Silicon Valley market report.  I like the direction the market barometer is headed.  That has to be better news for sellers.
