Palo Alto Ca Real Estate Market Update 9/30/2013

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty of California Silicon Valley Probate, Trust, and Investment Sales B.R.E. 01191194

As a Palo Alto Real Estate Agent I am always being asked, "How's the market in Palo Alto?" The answer is simple:

Not enough inventory, plenty of buyers.

There are currently 33 single family Palo Alto homes for sale, down from 46 last month.

There are currently 6 Palo Alto town homes/condos for sale, down from 9 last month.

There are currently 34 pending sales of Palo Alto single family homes, up from 28 last week.

There are currently 15 pending sales of Palo Alto Town homes/Condos, up from 13 last month.

In Aug of 2013 there were 43 single family Palo Alto homes sold, just 2 less than in July. The prices ranged from $980,000 to $5,400,000. This is the first sale under a million dollars since last spring.

In August of 2013 there were 7 Palo Alto Town Homes/Condos sold, 2 more than in July.  The prices ranged from $550,000 to $1,700,000. This is not a high starting price point for condos in Palo Alto, but it was only one bedroom and about the same as last month.

August is traditionally the lowest month for inventory in Palo Alto so I skipped a few weeks of tracking. Hopefully we will not fall back into weeks of only a few homes for sale. Anything between 40 and 60 is typical seller's market for Palo Alto and over 90 is a buyer's market.   As you can see, the chances of a buyer's market in the near future look slim, but if we could just have enough inventory that all the serious buyers could eventually win a bid I would be happy and seller's would still reap their appreciation.  While right now the number of pending sales are higher than last week and the active listings are down.  The impeding government shut down is not having a effect on the market this week. We will have to see about next week if we really do shut down. If you would like to search for homes for sale please feel free to visit my website for a custom search.

If you have any questions about buying or selling a home in Palo Alto please feel free to contact me.
