Poway Real Estate Stats for June 2008

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Alfonso Realty

Hi All!

Here are the Stats  for Detached homes in Poway for June compared with May:

Detached Homes
New Listings
Home that went under contract in
Sold Homes
New Listings
Home that went Under Contract in May Sold Homes
Number 48 28 35 35 14 29
Avg List Price $938,920 $528,937 $706,972 $1,298,240 $623,927 $641,462
Median List Price $774,236 $404,450 $554,970 $795,000 $446,950 $569,000
Avg SOLD price ------------ ---------------- $666,273 -------------- -------------- $605,704
Median SOLD Price ------------ ---------------- $540,000 -------------- -------------- $525,000


As you can see, the number of sales in Poway for DETACHED homes INCREASED from 29 to 35 and the number of homes that went under contract DOUBLED from May to June, but the market still hasn't shown a clear sign that we can say this is it, here is a clear pattern. Although the number of contracts doubling does seem to be a precursor for increase SOLD homes for the following month, with so many short sales lingering and falling out of escrow, we will have to wait and see.  I still think  that even though the AVG & Median Prices have declined,  with the increase in number of homes under contract doubling, that seems to indicate that Buyers now think that prices are Right. And when more buyers come into the market like this, that tends to reverse the downward trend, and have prices level off or even start to increase. But we would need to see this trend continue for a few more months to see if that is the case.

Nevertheless, If you are looking to buy in Poway, with the prices down, and the contracts doubling, this would be a good time to get off the fence and jump in and buy. One never can see the bottom exactly in stats until after it has already happened, and by then it is too late.  So, with mortgage interest rates climbing, and the prices down where more buyers are jumping in, if you are thinking about a home, contact me.
