February 2023 Almaden Valley Real Estate Market Update
Almaden Valley’s real estate market climbed out of the holiday doldrums in fine fashion in February. Under contract and sold single family homes posted healthy increases over January. We saw a decrease in the number of new listings during this time period, which may have been an anomaly as we usually see inventory increase as well as the market comes out of the holiday season. In fact, February numbers showed a scant one month’s of inventory versus the 2.6 months we saw in January. When looking at data for the past three years, February has experienced a similar low inventory, but usually an increase from January. This will bear watching as it could be an indication that there may be a shift from a buyer’s market to a seller’s market.
Overall, Almaden Valley real estate appears to be holding a fairly stable pattern. We aren’t seeing the astronomical sales numbers of 2021 when homes were selling faster than they were coming onto the market. Today, homes are taking longer to sell but data is showing there is plenty of interest in Almaden Valley homes, and well-priced homes are finding an eager market.
