Walnut Creek Real Estate Market Notes
It continues to be a seller’s market in Walnut Creek. Inventory levels were low throughout the year and demand has been high, evidenced by the high number of properties that received multiple offers. Homes that sell above asking price became the “norm” with favorable terms for home sellers. The facts above are somewhat astonishing. Looking at the points that the average “Sold” price is significantly higher than the average “List” price.
Walnut Creek Real Estate Market Looking Forward to 2014
We look for inventory levels to increase in the first quarter from the low fourth quarter levels, but fully expect demand to remain high which bodes well for savvy home sellers. Mortgage rates are expected to increase throughout 2014 which may limit pricing levels for some buyers, if you’re considering selling your home it may be more beneficial for you to hit the market early this year opposed to later.
