In May of 2013 there were 45 single family Santa Clara homes sold, 6 more than the number in April, ranging in price from $495,000 to $1,290,000. This shows a decrease in price range of 10% for the lowest priced home sold in April. The highest is the up 3% from April.
In May of 2013 there were 33 Santa Clara Town Homes/Condos sold, five more than in April. They ranged in price from $280,000 to $825,000. Again the low end is about 25% higher and the high end about the same. The lowest priced traditional sale was $275,000 in april so a low price of $280,000 is not that significant.
Santa Clara single family home listings had a good jump this week, up about 20% from last week. Hopefully as more homeowners come out from being underwater (owing more on their home than it is worth) more sellers will be able and willing to sell. However, there was not an increase in condos for sale and this is important as there are so many young people trying to buy their first homes and so few condos for them to buy.
