The Santa Clara housing market in August experienced 58 single-family homes that closed escrow, which was more than the 53 which sold in July.   

During August there were 68 homes that accepted contracts an increase from the prior month’s 59 homes.  During the month there were 74 new active listings that came on the market.

The average price of a home sold in August was $1.53M which is about $20K higher than last month’s figure of $1.51M.  The Median price home sold was $1.48M, which is about $20K lower than July’s median price.

The average cost per square foot decreased from $966 per Sq. Ft. to $962. Of the 58 homes sold in August, 45 sold over asking. 

On average homes that sold, sold 4.17% over asking compared to 2.61% over asking in the previous month.

We started the month of August with 51 active single-family home listings and finished with at the same level with 51 in all of Santa Clara.

August, which is typically a slower month for sales in the Summer we saw an increase over July as the market continues to heat up with more buyers.  

The slow spring may be responsible as we are seeing more transactions happening this time of year.  Although there are more listings coming up buyers are keeping up with new inventory and multiple offers situations are becoming more frequent.

Last month we saw an increase of the percentage that sold homes are selling over asking, another indicator of a stronger sellers market.

The Altos Market Action Index (MAI) continues to trend upward gradually another indicator that the market is becoming a stronger sellers market. 

Remember that September can be a transition month where we move from the Summer market to the Fall market with dropping inventory.  With so many changes this year its difficult to predict if we will follow the same pattern of lower inventory in the Fall and a tighter market for buyers.

Buyers, be sure to be clear on your objectives and don’t overlook homes that may not be updated but are good buys.  Such as homes in sought after neighborhoods, good layouts and in desirable locations. 

Sellers, with lower inventory and strong buyer demand, the market continues to favor listings .  Homes are seeing more and more multiple offers and selling faster than previous months.  

Be sure to understand how your home fits in the current market, so you know what improvements you need to make if any to get your home sold quickly and for a great price.

If you have any questions about a home on the market or your home’s value, please feel free to reach out I am happy to hear from you.
