Much of the same

March 6th, 2015

Sales within the month of February were quite similar to Last year’s February.

Here is last month…CMA Report February 2015

This year (see link above) there were 23 sales that sold in an average of 61 days for 98.99% of the last asking price for an average of $320.03 per square foot.

February of last year, there were 21 sales that sold in an average of 47 days on the market for 98.74% of the last asking price for an average price of $296.34 per square foot.

The largest difference ratio-wise is the number of days the closed homes remained on the market… It’s a nearly 30% increase over last year, but I wouldn’t necessarily give that much weight as that stat tends to vary more than others.

This month’s posting is a bit late

February 12th, 2015

I apologize for posting this month’s entry a bit late…

As you can see from the attached “CMA Report” for January, there’s not much going on concerning the local real estate market. CMA Report January 2015

The average price per square foot for the Davis properties that closed escrow in January was $311.67. Higher than last month ($305.05) and also higher than last year’s January ($291.04).  The number of days the sold properties remained on the market (last month) was 70.  That’s a bit higher than expected considering how few properties are currently on the market.  Last year, January’s sales were on the market an average of 42 cumulative days.

If you have any questions concerning the local real estate market and/or buying or selling a home, feel free to contact me anytime.

2015 is here…

January 6th, 2015

Happy New Year everyone!

Here is a report showing ALL the properties within Davis that are currently “pending sale” as well as ALL the properties within Davis that closed escrow within the month of December (as reported by the MLS as of 1/6/2015 at 2:36pm).

CMA Report December 2014

I always like to look at these CMA reports and see if anything stands out.  What I noticed this month is that the number of sales is higher than the last couple of Decembers.  There were 48 sales last month in Davis.  Last December (2013), there were 35 and in December 2012, there were just 33.  This isn’t a huge difference and may not be a big deal, but it’s interesting to note.

By the way, the average price per square foot for the sold properties last month was $305.05.  Last year, it was $302.59 during the same time period.

If you have any questions or are interesting in buying or selling a property within Davis or Woodland, call or email me.

Higher prices in Davis

October 6th, 2014

As we transition to the fall season, the real estate market here in Davis is going strong, as typical.

Prices are higher than last month as well as last year.  CMA Report Sept 2014

September was a strong month… The average price per square foot for the properties that closed escrow within the month is $314.37.  As mentioned, that’s higher than last month and last year (as expected).  Also higher is the Sales price to list price ratio.  Last month (September), properties sold for an average of 99.66% of the ask price.  In August, the month prior, properties sold for 99.27% of the last list price, and in September of last year, the ratio was 99.04%

This month (October of 2014), I expect this ratio to be lower than 99.66%.  This is simply an educated guess based on the time of year / the fact that fall has arrived.

I hope you all have a happy and safe Halloween!

Nothing drastic to report

September 5th, 2014

 

Well, here are the stats for last month… CMA Report Aug 2014

August was typical… 62 homes sold for an average price per square foot of $305.63.  In August of last year, 50 homes sold for an average price per square foot of $297.02.

Last month (July), 47 homes sold for an average price per square foot of $319 so it may appear that things have cooled off a bit (as is the case each fall).  The number of days last month’s homes remained on the market before selling is up slightly, but still low- just 27.

We’ll see where the trends lead us… Contact me anytime.

Nearly back-to-school time…

August 5th, 2014

I hope you’re all enjoying your summer.  July here in Davis was pretty typical… Slightly fewer properties sold compared July last year, but more properties are pending sale right now than this time last year.

Here is the most recent data… CMA Report July  Last month, 47 properties sold for an average of $319.08 per square foot.  They sold in an average of about 20 “days on market” and sold for an average of 100.09% of their last asking prices.

Nothing earth shattering here.

If you have any questions or would like to buy or sell a Davis or Woodland property, please feel free to contact me anytime.

I hope you had a happy 4th of July

July 9th, 2014

I apologize for posting a bit late this month, but not much has changed in Davis and the surrounding communities.

Here is the latest Davis real estate market data… CMA Report June

As you can see, things seem to be relatively typical.   70 homes closed escrow in June and those homes sold for an average price per square foot of $320.28 (in 23 days for 99.78% of the last asking price, on average).  Last June, there were only 47 sales (averaging about $300 per square foot).

If you’re interested in buying or selling a property in the area or would like to talk, please call or email me anytime.

109 active listings

June 5th, 2014

As of right now (11:27am on 6/5/2014), there are 109 active listings in Davis.  That’s more than twice as many as 4 months ago, but still less than what most would consider to be an appropriate inventory for a balanced market of Davis’ size.

In May, the Davis properties that sold were on the market for an average of 31 days.  That’s a bit higher than last month, but still very low.  With inventories higher, I suspect the “days on market” will go up to a more normal 60 days or so.  I’m not sure if that will happen within a couple / few months, in the late fall, or next year, but it’s likely to happen.

Here are the stats (current pendings AND May’s closings)… CMA Report May 2014

Davis homes selling at higher prices

May 5th, 2014

Here is the latest CMA report that shows the properties within Davis that are currently pending sale as well as all the properties that closed escrow within the month of April, 2014… CMA Report April 2014

What stands out to me most this month is the average price per square foot of the homes that closed escrow… $320.67.  That’s a big jump from last month’s $293.41.  The average price per square foot in April of 2013 (last year) was $278.37.  Another indication of a seller’s market is the average number of days the April 2014 closings remained on the market before selling…  24 days.  Last month and last year, that figure was 41 and 40 respectively.

One positive for current buyers is that there are more properties to choose from.  Currently, there are 86 active listings.  Last year at this time, there were more than a dozen fewer.

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.

If you have any real estate related questions, please call the number below or email me at andrew@DavisCalifornia.com

Thanks.
