Piedmont, CA (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
Anian Tunney Piedmont CA real estate agent broker remarks on the California Association of Realtors® (CAR) July Home Sales and Price Report which says July Home Sales and Price Report(1) which says California’s housing market bounced back after a slight dip in June to reach the highest level since May 2012. “A constrained supply of homes over the past year has fueled robust home price increases, particularly in the coastal regions,” said C.A.R. Vice President and Chief Economist Leslie Appleton-Young. “Looking ahead, we should continue to see strong price growth but at a less accelerated pace than what we’ve experienced over the past year. Inventory levels are starting to build in some areas as price gains free up previously underwater homes and encourage homeowners reluctant to list because of the scarcity of homes to purchase.” One of the homes for sale in Piedmont is 47 Fairview Avenue, Piedmont, offered at $1,195,000.
“The spike in interest rates in June prompted home buyers to delay escrow closings in hopes that rates would fall back,” said C.A.R. President Don Faught. “As buyers recognized rates had stabilized, they moved forward to close escrow, which lifted July’s sales from both the previous month and year.” Closed escrow sales of existing, single-family detached homes in California totaled a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 443,520 units in July, according to information collected by C.A.R. from more than 90 local REALTOR® associations and MLSs statewide. Sales in July were up 7 percent from a revised 414,670 in June and up 1.5 percent from a revised 436,870 in July 2012. The year-to-year sales increase was the first since December 2012, following six consecutive months of declines. The statewide sales figure represents what would be the total number of homes sold during 2013 if sales maintained the July pace throughout the year. It is adjusted to account for seasonal factors that typically influence home sales. A good example of houses for sale in Rockridge is 5528 Broadway, Oakland, in sale pending status.
