Median Prices Hold Steady, But SIP Showing Its Impact

Despite the shelter-in-place (SIP) order in mid-March, median prices held up in April, even gaining compared to last April in 4 of the 5 MLSListings counties; Santa Cruz County showed a 4% decrease in median price.

Premiums (i.e., the amount paid above/below the list price) also closely mirrored last year, with San Mateo at 104%, Santa Clara at 103%, Santa Cruz and San Benito both at 99%, and Monterey at 98% on average.

However, the SIP showed its effects dramatically in closed sales, which were off by up to 50% from 2019, with San Mateo down (50%), San Benito at (49%), Monterey at (44%), Santa Clara at (36%), and Santa Cruz County dipping (33%).

Moreover, new listings were off, ranging from (39%) in San Mateo and Santa Cruz counties to (57%) in Monterey County. This will impact total inventory in what are typically the busiest months of the year.
