Hi Kathleen:  Condominium living is becoming quite popular in California.   Many buyers like the type of lifestyle that condominium complexes offer.  The days on market in your report shows a trend of selling rather quickly, too!

Jane, The condo inventory has been consumed by first time home buyers and investors.  Short sales dominate most condo markets.  We need more inventory!!! Thanks for stopping by.

Laura,Thank you. The numbers are very telling.  As you know, real estate is local. Areas of San Jose are fairing much better than the city-wide numbers reflect. Thanks for your comment.
