March/April 2011 Almaden Valley Market Update

We recently completed a very strong first quarter of 2011, with total sales volume up 29% over 2010. This also marks the best first quarter we have had since 2007.
In comparison to the broader Q1 2011 Bay Area residential environment, APR outperformed the market. Our results were very favorable and show us continuing to increase our market share, per Trendgraphix. In aggregate, comparing Q1 2011 vs. Q1 2010, on closed units, APR was up 23%, while the Bay Area market (6 counties) was up only 1%. APR also dominates average sales price in comparison to the market average.

December 2010 Almaden Valley Market Update

The Almaden market has been improving, even as we move into the holidays.  I sold my listing at 7163 Glenview Drive before it even came on the mls.    We held it open Thanksgiving weekend and had 15 parties through on Saturday and 20 on Sunday.  Also, many sellers have been taking their homes off the market which has helped in reducing inventory.

November 2010 Almaden Valley Market Update

Pending sales in Almaden have picked up and Inventory is slightly down. Many sellers will be taking their homes off the market as we go into the holidays so we should see some continued drop in inventory from now until the end of the year.
