The number of active listings in Almaden Valley increased slightly from last week, from 76 to 80 this week. The percentage of listings that are in escrow decreased slightly, from 38% to 35%. Traditional (ie non-distressed) listings experienced a similar change, from 67 to 71 active listings and from 31% in escrow to 30% this week. This could very likely be the early stages of the annual slow-down we see around the holidays.
Interest rates remain fairly much at the same level as last week.
