Happy Home Sellers in Pasadena

Pasadena real estate numbers are out for the month of August.  I’ve put together a visual graphic for my clients to provide a quick overview of the real estate market conditions:

Pasadena California real estate market trends August 2012

Here are some of my observations:

1.  This summer has truly been an incredible recovery for many property owners that have taken the plunge and put their home on the market in Pasadena.

2.  Multiple offers continued through the summer and are still seen on a daily basis.

3.  Inventory is still very low.  Banks are holding on to their “shadow inventory” and not releasing many foreclosures.

4.  Home buyers have increased their purchase power with the historically low interest rates and many are able to lock in these interest rates long term – 10, 15 and 30 years.

5.  Many Pasadena home sellers are beautifully presenting their property by having it professionally staged and many are providing inspection reports to potential buyers.

6.  Acceleration Clauses are being strategically used by home buyers and their agents.

Quick statistics:

  • 89 homes sold in August and 91 homes were listed.
  • Average price of single family home sold in North West Pasadena was $630,000 last month vs. $513,000 same period last year – a 22.8% increase.
  • Average price of single family home sold in South West Pasadena was $902,000 last month vs. $1,018,000 same period last year – an 11.4% decrease.
  • Average price of single family home sold in North East Pasadena was $569,000 last month vs. $469,000 same period last year – a 22.3% increase.
  • Average price of single family home sold in South East Pasadena was $885,000 last mont vs. $1,286,000 same period last year – a 31.2% decrease.

Homes in the lower price range are moving much quicker than higher priced homes.  We are definitely seeing a lot more first time home buyers which again speaks to the lower interest rates making it more possible for folks to afford a home and in many cases more financially advantageous than renting.

    They fell in love with the house the minute they walked inside. And as the years passed, their love only grew. Mornings almost always started with a steaming cup of coffee in the living room, admiring the unbelievable view of the San Gabriel Mountains. And they were thrilled to discover their little pocket is made up of friendly, diverse, and considerate neighbors who often exchange gifts of homemade cookies or bottles of wine during the holidays. Perched high atop San Rafael Hills, 185 Sequoia was their retreat from the hustle and bustle. Not many folks have reason to drive on the street, so things are quiet and peaceful. But, it's just a short car ride down to the lovely cafes in Eagle Rock and Old Town Pasadena. When feeling jaunty, they would walk. They loved how each season brings its own delights. Monarch butterflies flutter along the front yard plants in the summer while hummingbirds are present in the backyard year round. It's a private oasis back there with fruit trees lining the upper terrace area, offering a bounty of delicious apples (great for baking in the oven during winter!), oranges, limes, figs, and tangerines. With such a beautiful home, entertaining was frequent and fabulous. Cocktails and canapes on the backyard deck easily transitioned to dinner with great wine and even better conversation inside. And the views... Oh, those views...
