Real Estate Prices Up since New Year

There has been less inventory as well.

Real Estate Prices Up since New Year

The real estate price has gone up since Dec 2011, the number of inventory has been on the down trend since mid February, which is a factor contributing to the up trend in price.

I have heard potential buyers saying that the banks are withholding inventory which is why prices have gone up. However REO listing is only approximately 3% of the overall market in Redwood City.

Let's also look at the trend in NOD (notice of default) filing, which is the first step in the foreclosure process.  According to Foreclosure Radar, both the NOD filing and the foreclosure inventory have been on the down trend since Aug 2011.  http://www.foreclosureradar.com/california/san-mateo-county-foreclosures

With REO inventory going down, the chance of REO inventory flooding the market and driving down the price is slim.

No. of listings 92 No. of REOs (real estate owned, by a bank, government agency, etc.) 3 No. of short sales 14 No. of regular sales 75 No. of new listings last week 16 No. of listings has price increase last week 2 No. of listings has price decrease last week 12 No. of listings become pending last week 18 No. of property sold last week 25 Inventory level 1.64 months
