This is a look at real estate activity in South Pasadena, California for the month of September as well as the first nine months of 2017 for the single-family home segment of the market.  I will provide information regarding properties currently available for sale and in escrow as well as transactions that closed in September and include sales results for the same periods for the previous two years.  Statistical information in this report has been gathered from our local multiple listing service(mls) and may not include all sales.  While the information is deemed reliable, it has not been verified and is not guaranteed.  


South Pasadena(zip code 91030) has a small town charm where you can find tree-lined streets with character homes as well as more modern homes with incredible views in the hills.  The separate city which is not a part of Pasadena - is used extensively in films, television, commercials, video and print media as it can often fit the role as Anywhere USA.  Also known as South Pas to locals and fans alike,  South Pasadena Unified School District is well-regarded and the library is a popular destination for the community.  Many small independently owned businesses and restaurants further enhance the neighborhood feel.    


The city is quite convenient to the Arroyo Seco Parkway(110) as well as other freeways and a Gold Line light rail station at Mission and Meridian which is also the home to the weekly Farmers Market.

This report is merely a snapshot look at properties on the market or for sale(and sold) in a particular given time frame.  Obviously looking at nine months versus one month is a better indication of the market and while we see some shifts occurring, the market still favors sellers and buyers should expect that multiple offers may be a part of the buying today especially when properties first come on the market that are well-priced and well-presented. Additional details are necessary in order for a potential seller to arrive at an appropriate listing price and for a prospective buyer to determine their offer strategy.    There are many nuances of a market and factors of individual sales that need to be analyzed than space available in this brief report can convey.  


Size of home and usable lot as well as Location in the city makes a difference in the final sales price along with other factors including condition, updates(or lack thereof), emotional appeal and timing.  While multiple offers and sales over list prices remain common, sellers should be mindful to be aware of proper pricing and presentation as today’s buyers remain quite savvy as to market conditions.    Buyers, as always, need to be able to respond quickly to new listings as well as price reductions(yes, they still occur at times in an active market).
