Real Estate Market Update for Richmond, 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 8% from one year earlier, and down 29% 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 under 430-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold did not change ... reflecting virtually no change in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 460-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 13% year-over-year, and decreased 18% month-over-month. Fewer sales could indicate an opportunity for buyers to negotiate better terms. Thanks for watching.
