Almaden Valley Real Estate Market Update – September 12, 2011

We experienced another week of slow but steady improvement of the Almaden Valley real estate market. The number of available homes remained steady at 85, but the number of pending listings increased from 35% to 36%. Traditional (ie non-distressed) sales showed similar activity, with available properties remaining at 79 and pending listings showing an increase from 26% to 28%. Mortgage rates remain at historic lows, and buyers appear to be taking advantage of this fact.
