Realtor.com reports SAN JOSE Ranks #1 where Home Prices have fallen most

Realtor.com reports that SAN JOSE, CA ranks #1 where Home Prices have fallen the most, in their findings, dated May 20, 2019. Most recently, the real estate market has experenced a shortage of available homes for sale to balance the demand of Buyer’s needs. Combined with super low interest rates, the results were that the Bay Area housing sales prices escalated at record-breaking speed from years 2011-2018. This year has delivered a “cooling-off” phase, in some areas, such as San Jose, CA as prices have softened and inventory has increased.

Houses priced right are still selling quickly, and some “over-asking.” The market is relatively balanced, and favorable for both Buyers and Sellers. The mortgage interest rates are low and there are more homes to choose from.

DAILY REAL ESTATE NEWS | WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 2015

One in three U.S. households say they plan to move in the next five years, according to a survey conducted by the Demand Institute of 10,000 households’ current living situations.

Seventy-five percent of the households surveyed cited one or more location-related reasons for why they were moving. The top reasons were the desire for a safer neighborhood (30%); being closer to family (27%); a change of climate (26%); being closer to work (25%), and moving for a new job (23%).
