California April 2016 Home Sales Report

Screen Shot 2016-05-21 at 8.18.03 AM

Take a look!  Home pricing is getting MORE expensive!  The median price of a home has now reached over $500K statewide!  What is driving the growth in pricing?  Take a closer look!  Sales of single family homes DECREASED from last year and the previous year!  From my conversations more homeowners are staying put, making housing more scarce and driving prices of existing homes higher.  Many homeowners are taking advantage of lower property taxes by holding onto what real estate they have instead up trading up or down.  Questions?  Email me for more assistance on how to buy or sell a home in this market!
