WHILE CURRENT PENDING HOME SALES UP IN SCOTTS VALLEY AREA, DAYS ON MARKET HIGHER AND LIST PRICE TO SALES PRICE RATIO COMES DOWN OVER 2% YEAR-OVER-YEAR
The pending sales for all homes in the Scotts Valley area is showing a slight uptick as single family homes are showing a 46% pending sales ratio, meaning the amount of single family homes that have accepted offers and are in “escrow” as buyers do their due diligence, appraisal, financing, etc.
CONDOS & TOWNHOUSES A LITTLE FLAT
Meanwhile, condos and townhouses currently on the market are a total of 14 with 3 in escrow, representing 21.4% of condos and townhouses currently in contract.
To me that is a lower percentage then normal, but also indicative of a couple of the newer developments that have come on the market.
The overall stats are showing 40.6% of ALL homes being in pending status. Not too long ago I was seeing and reporting about 20% in pending sales, quite a difference.
• The average list price for single family homes and condo townhouses is $1,218,311.
• Single family homes on their own have an average list price of $1,353,580 with an average days on market of 50 days.
• Condos and townhouses are averaging a list price of $735,207 with an average days on market of 22 days.
TOTAL YEAR TO DATE STATS FOR ALL
• Average days on market are 41 days
• Average list price is $1,151,527
• Average sales price is $1,128,734
• On AVERAGE, homes are selling for $22,793 less than asking price or 98% of asking price – again, on average
Compared to last year between 01/01/2018-11/11/2018 there were 196 closings (7 more) with an average days on market of 30 days (11 less), an average list price of $1,080,011 (up $71,516 in 2019) and average sales price of $1,087,744 (up $40,990 in 2019).
On average, in the same time YTD last year homes sold for just over 100% of asking price, averaging $7,733 over asking price. Not a huge difference, but noticeable in that days on market increased by 37%.
As always, Happy Selling and Happy Buying!
