FEB. 2020 SANTA CLARA COUNTY STATS

By: Jeni Pfeiffer, Associate Broker, Realtor®

The real estate market turned quickly and heated up with multiple offers late DEC 2019, JAN and FEB 2020. The market can turn on a dime, and has shown this again. Mortgage interest rates dipped below 3.5%, and the real estate inventory dwindled. With a low supply, and still high demand, with favorable mortgage rates, bidding wars returned! For example, 635 Yosemite Avenue, Mountain View 94041 was listed on 01/30/2020 for $2,448,000 and SOLD 27% “over-asking” to CLOSE at $3,100,000.

As of March 4, 2020, the Bay Area Real Estate currently has 997 ACTIVE Status units (Single Family, Condo and Townhomes available for sale) in the Santa Clara County. FEB 2020 recorded 806 Home SALES ranging from $359,000 (1062 Summershore Court, San Jose 95122) to $8,100,000 (28011 Elena Road, Los Altos Hills 94022), with 28 Average Days on Market DOM. The Average Close Price was $1,337,243 with 46% of the Sales selling between $800,000 – $1,400,000.

Leafy Mature Trees add Premium Value to Real Estate

architects are designing or remodeling entire homes around them. High-end developers—once known for stripping tracts of land to the dirt and planting saplings after construction—are now calling off the bulldozers.

Fueled by the booming tech economy and seemingly insatiable demand for housing, the Bay Area set records in the second quarter of this year in the number of homes sold for $1 million or more as well as those costing at least $2 million, a real estate information service said Thursday.
