Home Sales Fall in March

Sales of single-family, re-sale homes fell in March compared to last year. I think we all expected this amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. Home sales were down 16.7%. There were 612 homes sold in Santa Clara County last month. The average since 2000 is 987.

We expect home sales to continue dropping for the next two months.

The sales price to list price ratio jumped to 105.5% from 104.4%. That’s the highest it has been since July 2018.

Inventory of single-family, re-sale homes was down 41.8% compared to last year. That is the seventh month in a row inventory has been lower than the year before. As of April 5th, there were 669 homes for sale in Santa Clara County. The average since January 2000 is 2,703.

The median sales price for single-family, re-sale homes in March was up 8.1% compared to last year. The average sales price was up 9.6% year-over-year.

Days of Inventory, or how long it would take to sell all homes listed for sale at the current rate of sales, fell three days to 33 days compared to February. The average since 2003 is 89.

It took only twenty days to sell a home last month. That is the time from when a home is listed for sale to when it goes into contract.

The median sales price for condos was down 6.4% from last March. The average sales price fell 3.6% year-over-year.
