In April, 2013 there were 18 single family Mountain View homes sold ranging in price from $705,000 to $1,900,000. The volume was the same and the low end is about the same as Feb and March, but the high end is significantly higher..
In April, 2013 there were 32 Mountain View Town Homes/Condos sold ranging in price from $305,000 to $1,210,000. There were almost twice as many sales in April as in March, which is good, but the lowest price condo sold 10% over the lowest price in March.
The inventory is down this week as expected as it is a holiday week-end. I would like to see at least 40 single family homes for sale and at least 60 condos for sale at any given week. I think as the summer goes on it may still be possible. In some communities such as Palo Alto and Menlo Park there are many empty nestors who would be selling, but do not because their grown children come back to live with them. this is not the case for a Mountain View condo. Many condo owners who would have sold to move up were not able to when prices were below their original purchase price. Appreciation has wiped out that problem so hopefully we see more condo sellers soon.
