Prior Real Estate Market Reports for Pasadena California

Pasadena California Real Estate Statistics April 2011

Pasadena Real Estate Market Overview – 2009 vs 2010

As we start a new year, it’s always interesting to look at year over year data to see the trends in real estate activities.

Media keeps regurgitating national statistics and I get constant calls from my mom in panic that the real estate market is crashing.  🙂  So… let’s look at a few of the critical local stats.

  • The volume of home sales was definitely down in 2010.  662 homes were sold in 2010 vs 775 in 2009 – a 17% reduction in inventory.
  • The average sales price, however, went up by almost 6% from $755,626 in 2009 to $803,296 in 2010.
  • Foreclosures have been on everyone’s mind.  I’ve been talking about shadow foreclosure inventory for awhile now.  However, there were only 31 sales in 2010 compared to 21 sales in 2009.  Most REOs that sell are in the lower price point with the average sales price $441,909 for 2010.
  • Investors are out in force.  58% of all single family home short sale that successfully closed escrow were purchase for ALL cash.
  • Only 1 in 4 properties that were being sold in a short sale process closed escrow.

Pasadena’s Single Family Homes – Real Estate report for August 2010

When we are looking at Pasadena home sales data for August 2010, please keep in mind that most of these homes have actually went under contract sometime in June or July.  Hot summer months – in more ways than one.  Yes… it was hot.  🙂  But, for real estate purposes, this is also the busiest home selling activity.

Many Pasadena home buyers take advantage of vacation time or kids being out of school to go shopping for their next home.

August in itself, had the lowest number of new home listings in Pasadena at only 77 comparing to close to 100 in the previous months.

The lowest priced home for sale listed in Pasadena was $220,000.

The highest priced home for sale listed in Pasadena was $6,650,000

Pasadena real estate housing statistics for January 2010

In reviewing the numbers of home sales in Pasadena California for January 2010 and comparing it to January 2009, the stats that jump out at me are:

Pasadena Single Family Houses for Sale

  • The inventory is a bit lower and it takes a lot less time to sell a home in Pasadena this year than last.
  • Price per square foot of sold homes is actually higher this year than last.
  • Even though there’s less inventory, almost twice as many units sold in January of this year than last.
  • And, fewer home listings expired.

Pasadena Condos for Sale

  • Again less inventory this year, but significantly higher number of sales – in January of 2009, only 5 condos sold and 33 in January of 2010.
  • Price per sq. ft. of sold condos is a bit lower at $367 vs. $379
  • Absorption rate is only 19.6 weeks in 2010 vs 158 weeks in 2009

Pasadena Townhouses for Sale

  • A lot more new townhome listings this January than last year.  However, the total number of units is consistent at 67.
  • Only 4 townhomes sold in January of 2010 vs 11 in 2009
  • Price per square foot is significantly higher and is over $400.  This is most likely driven by a small number of sales.  That number will come down in February as volume of sales rises.

See the latest Pasadena Real Estate Market and Housing Report for housing trends as of August 2009.

As expected, the volume of sales has increased dramatically from April to May.

Pasadena home sales increased by 20% from April and homes under contract are 23% higher.  Average selling price increased a bit as well.  Close to 100 new home listings came up on the market, but the inventory is still a bit under 300 homes.

Here’s a chart from Altos Research group with the historical look at Median prices of Pasadena homes:

Medium Chart

As I published March 2009, Pasadena Real Estate Market Housing statistics and report, there were several key points that jumped out at me when I looked at the numbers:

1. The housing inventory is falling in every category – Pasadena homes, Pasadena condos and Pasadena townhomes. In a normal real estate market the inventory will pick up as we get closer to spring and summer months. The number of newly listed Pasadena properties stays the same, but the number of Pasadena home sales almost doubled in March 2009.

2. Absorption Rate – a key real estate statistic – is significantly lower for each of the tracked categories. Absorption rate is an indicator that sellers use to anticipate how long it will take to market their homes for sale. For example, looking at Pasadena single family homes, a Pasadena home seller should understand that if the rate of sales and current inventory remains the same, it will take them on average 21.7 weeks to sell their home. That’s a significant drop in home marketing time from 35.7 and shows a trend towards getting back to a more balanced real estate market.

3. The most significant change in pricing is seen at the Pasadena condo level. Now is the time to get excellent Pasadena condo deals. The price per square foot on a Pasadena condo is at an all time low of $315 per sq. ft. Take a look at Pasadena’s real estate market analysis for the last five years and you’ll see that we’re back to 2003 price levels.

Read the full Pasadena Real Estate Market Report for March 2009 here.

Real estate market Pasadena California statistics for January and February 2009:

nventory of Pasadena homes each month for both January and February almost doubled from December of 2008.  More homes are available for sale and more homes are selling.  February 2009 ended the month with 37 Pasadena homes sold and 57 homes under contract.  This is very much in line with what I’ve been seeing with my clients.  A lot of offers are being placed on homes and once again we are seeing multiple offers in homes under $500,000.  It’s also interesting to note that single family residences (SFR) in Pasadena sold a bit over 97% of asking price.

The number of available Pasadena condos for sale doubled as well from the end of 2008.  A huge increase in the number of Pasadena condos under contract from last year was seen in the month of February.  This doesn’t surprise me since condos have experienced a more significant price drop.  I was able to help my buyers purchase a condo last month in the South Lake Avenue district just steps from Macy’s for only $249,500.  And the price included a seller concession of an additional $7,500 towards closing costs.  Quite frankly, this type of purchase was impossible only a few months ago.

Pasadena real estate market report for December 2008:

December has been uneventful for Pasadena’s real estate market. Inventory of homes and condos dropped from last several months to 250 homes and 158 condos. While the number of available Pasadena townhomes for sale increased to 76 units.

Since, there was an increase in the number of homes sold and the number of Pasadena sellers that decided to take their homes off the market, absorption rate dropped dramatically.

I expect that we will see a lot more Pasadena property listings hit the market in January since many home sellers wait until after the holidays to list their Pasadena home for sale. I also expect banks to start releasing foreclosures that they’ve been holding on to for book keeping purposes.

While prices have been basically flat over the last several weeks, the price per square foot has been heading downward. While not a sign of broad strength in a market, larger homes are becoming more available and Pasadena buyers are tending to get more home for their money.

Pasadena real estate market report for October 2008:

Pasadena’s real estate inventory of homes has decreased in October to 127 units overall – inclusive of single family residences, condos and townhomes. It is not surprising as folks are getting ready for the holiday season and in the natural annual cycle of real estate, we expect to see less inventory to choose from. The sales have closed strongly in October at 117 units. Next month, we will see a marked decrease in this number as evidenced by the decline in the

This month, I was able to catpure the median Pasadena home sales price and will be adding that information to all future reports. Median home sales prices provide a more accurate picture since the median signifies that 50% of Pasadena homes sold for more and 50% of these homes sold for less. Hope that you will find it useful.

Market Action Indicator for Pasadena’s real estate is currently in the buyer’s zone though not strongly so. The 90-day Market Action Index stands this week at 22 so buyers should expect find reasonable levels of selection. Inventory levels have been relatively consistent relative to sales. Despite the fact that there is a relatively high amount of available inventory, this Buyer’s market is still seeing prices move higher. Given inventory levels, these price conditions are relatively fragile. If the market cools off further, the price trend is likely to reverse.
