Real Estate Market Update for Walnut Creek, CA
Welcome to July's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of June. The number of active listings was stable from one year earlier, and down 9% from the previous month. These latest figures mean that buyers had a more limited selection of homes to choose from compared to the previous month. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was 670-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 6%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 800-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 3% year-over-year, and decreased 4% month-over-month. Higher year-over-year figures indicate that more buyers have been finding what they're looking for.
