Hold That Power Shift – Sellers Still Flexing Muscle

Although the prevailing wisdom is that power is shifting from sellers to buyers with respect to single family homes, there are indications that sellers are not relinquishing control easily. Median prices were up from last month in the counties of San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Santa Cruz, while staying flat in San Benito and decreasing only 2% in Monterey. Year-over-year, median prices were up in Monterey and San Benito, and only slightly down in the other counties.

Closed sales rose compared to September in Santa Clara, San Mateo, and Monterey, and remained even in San Benito. New listings are down everywhere (except San Benito) and inventory is tightening in all counties, factors that can boost prices. And seller muscle is definitely showing in median days on market (still under 30 days across counties) and in percent of list price received (which remains close to 100%).
