Real Estate Market Update for Arroyo Grande, CA
Welcome to November's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of October. The number of active listings was down 22% from one year earlier, and down 32% from the previous month. This smaller inventory means that buyers who waited to buy may have had a smaller selection to choose from. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was just over 800-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 2%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just over 650-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 22% year-over-year, and decreased 26% month-over-month.
