Another busy spring

April 4th, 2014

Here are the closings (and pending sales) for the month of March… CMA Report for March 2014

As you can see, there were 35 closed escrows last month.  That’s 14 more than last month and 3 more than March of last year.  The average price per square foot for the sales in March 2014 was $293, slightly lower than February 2014 ($296), but higher than last year.  Last year, the properties that sold in March closed at an average price per square foot of $266.27.

Looking at this latest data, one of the more interesting things to note is that at this time last year there were 92 properties pending sale.  As of today at 1:41pm, there are currently 75 properties pending sale.  So… it’s definitely busy this spring, but apparently not quite as busy as last spring.

Prices higher, but not quite as high as expected

March 6th, 2014

Real Estate prices here in Davis are a bit higher than last month, but not quite as high as I expected.

Last month I estimated that the average price per square foot for homes closing in February would be at, or slightly above, $300 per square foot.  Turns out, the average price per square foot last month was $296.34  That’s higher than both last month and last year ($281.78), but slightly lower than I expected from looking at last month’s “pending sales”.

Here are the closings as well as the current pendings… February CMA Report

21 properties closed escrow in February, 2014.  Those 21 properties were on the market an average of 47 days.  Last February, there were 26 closings on the market for an average of 70 days.

Sales is Davis are hovering around an average of $300 per square foot

February 6th, 2014

2014 seems to be starting out similarly to 2013 as there are very few listings on the market (46 as of today, 32 homes excluding condos and halfplexes (split-lots).

In this CMA Report, you can see that the properties that closed escrow in January sold for an average price per square foot of $291.7.  Last month the average was $302.07, but I suspect based on the pending sale statistics that next month the average price per square foot of Davis’ sold properties will again be above $300.

Residential real estate activity here in Davis

January 14th, 2014

How does the current real estate market here in Davis compare to the last 5 years?

This chart depicts local real estate activity fairly well…

Feel free to print out this chart.

Happy New Year… 2014

January 7th, 2014

2014 is here… Nearly halfway to 2020.

Seems to be a relatively normal real estate market here in Davis.  The number of active listings (inventory) is low, just 34 right now and the number of recent sales is typical… 35 last month (there were 33 sales in December 2012).

Here are the latest statistics… CMA Report December

The 35 properties that sold last month sold for an average price per square foot of $302.07.  That’s over 15% higher than December of last year.  Properties also sold more quickly too as the average number of day’s the 35 properties that sold last month remained on the market was 52.  Last year the 33 properties that sold were on the market for an average of 89 days.

On the other hand the sales price to list price ratio is lower in Dec 2013 vs Dec 2012.  Last month, properties sold for an average of 97.39% of their last list price.  Last December, properties sold for 98.47% of their last list price.

As the Holidays near, number of active listings drops

December 5th, 2013

 

In Davis the last few months, the number of active listings was rising.  Locally, some sellers were concerned by this trend.  The trend, however, reversed over the last few weeks.  Not much more than a month ago there were about 80 active listings and, as of this morning, there are just 48.  Some homes have sold and some owners are withdrawing their properties from the market for the holidays.  Here are the latest stats…

Last month, there were 24 sales (see linked report CMA Report Nov) These 24 homes sold in an average of just 31 days for an average price per square foot of $299.86.  Last year, 32 properties sold for an average of $276.14.

I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday.

As Thanksgiving approaches, change may be afoot

November 5th, 2013

Here’s a report showing all the Davis properties that are currently pending sale (as of 11/05/13 at 1:03pm) as well as those properties that closed escrow in the month of October. MLS CMA Report for October

As you can see, 43 homes sold last month for an average price per square foot of $286.50 with and average of 52 cumulative days on the market for an average sales price to list price ratio of 99.50.

Last year, 29 homes sold for an average price per square foot of $253.11 with and average of 61 cumulative days on the market for an average sales price to list price ratio of 98.53.

So all this seems to suggest that the market is stronger than last year; However, one “area” not mentioned is pending sales.  Last year at this time, there were 60 properties pending sale.  Currently there are 41 properties pending sale.  This is significantly lower, however, still quite healthy (in 2011, the number of properties pending at this time was in the 20′s).

September was a bit slower

October 4th, 2013

Here is the latest CMA report CMA Report Sept showing last months sales (closed escrows).

The average sales price to asking price ratio has finally dropped down below 100%.  The ratio is at 99.04% for September’s sales.  That figure is higher than last September’s (2012) closings (98.31%).  The average price per square foot for this September’s sales is also higher than last year… $300.89 vs $263.21 last year.  Interestingly, there were more sales last September (40) than this September (29).

So it could appear that the real estate market here in Davis is slowing down a bit.  That, however, may not be the case as there are currently 57 properties pending sale.  I predict that the number of properties sold in October 2013 will be slightly higher than October 2012.

Another strong month in Davis with a bit less activity

September 11th, 2013

Homes within Davis are still selling for more than the asking price (on average, based on last months sales).  In August, there were 50 Davis properties that closed escrow and the average sales price to list price ratio was 100.46%.  That’s 5 months now that the average has been over 100%.

Here is the latest CMA report… AUG CMA report

Looking at the report, you can see that the average price per square foot in August was $297.02.  It was $290.02 last month and $258.26 in August of last year.

August of this year wasn’t quite as active as last year… There was 50 sales last month, but 61 properties closed last August (2012).  11 fewer properties, but still more than the 32, 34, 38 in August of the 2009, 2010, and 2011 years respectively.

As of noon, September 5th, 2013, there are 80 properties currently on the market.

Changing market?

August 5th, 2013

Since last month, the interest rates have crept up a bit.  Perhaps that#039;s one of the reasons that inventory here in Davis has gone up.  As of this afternoon (August 5th), there are 83 properties currently on the market.  It was only about a month to a month and a half ago that there were about 40 active listings.  That#039;s a relatively large increase in a relatively short period of time.
That being said, the closed sales within the month of July don#039;t show much of a change…
July CMA Report  Last month, 65 Davis properties sold for an average of $290.02 per square foot.  They sold in an average of 24 days for an average of 100.74% of the asking price (still over the asking price – see my last two posts).

If you have any questions or would like a more comprehensive market analysis, please feel free to contact me anytime.
