Sales for November of 2016 Sonoma County, California

Heading into the Holidays with low inventory and weak sales.

Heading into the Holidays with low inventory and weak sales.

Here’s the “Tale of the Tape” for home sales, Sonoma County, California, November 2016.

Median home price is up 9% over last year at this time but this is due to the tight inventory market, buyer demand and rates on the rise. As of this writing, December 7, 2016, rates are hovering just at 4 to 4.25%. So the threat of rising rates is bringing those looking to the table. It should be noted we have only 575 “Active” listings for every town in Sonoma County–all price points. Slim pickens

While the median SOLD price is $575,000, the “On the Market” median home price is $749,00. This means of those 575 homes half are below and above that number. Sales are actualy up +2%, or pretty darn close to “Flat” year over year. The “Solds” for 2016 never broke 500 sales in any month. Last year we had two months of 500+ sales.

An indicator of things to come is the “Under Contract” numbers which are down -8% over last year. But this is also seasonal as the slowest months of the year are upon us. Inventory is as you’d expect–down. New properties entering the market -6% and total inventory down -15% year over year.

Positives? DOM or Days on the Market is down -33%! 50 days is the time and our MSI or Month’s Supply of Inventory is only 1.8 months. Put this in context: a “normal” market is 4-6 months supply, under that its a Seller’s market. We have a BIG TIME Seller’s Market!

Here in Sonoma County,Ca our inventory is very tight and days on the market down to 50!

Still, if you are a buyer keep at it! Especially if you are below the median home price of $575,000. Less competition and motivated Sellers are a good combination for you! Let us know if we can help! 707-322-8503! Mike Kelly.
