Altadena – May Trends in Real Estate

Altadena Real Estate Market: When the housing market peaked back in 2006, no one really thought about a long housing bust lasting up to 5 years.  However, we are seeing indications that it’s a great time to buy. Why?  For starters, the mortgage interest rate has been around 4.5% the first week of June 2011.  And, the lower home prices make it affordable for buyers who have been carefully waiting on the side lines.

Data for Altadena in the month of May: (data from I-Tech MLS)

105 properties were available for sale.

36 properties were sold, and 31 homes went into contract (escrow).

Compare to the month of April,  for sale units went up 9.4%.  Sold units increased by 38.5%.

Months of inventory fell from 3.7 months in April to 2.9 months in May, a change of 21.6%.

    A grand 4,857 SF estate that is just waiting to be rediscovered & reimagined. The six bedroom, six bath residence, with an add'l two bedroom chauffeur's suite, has been held by the same family for half a century. The 1916 home has been attributed to the Foss Designing & Building Co, who were sought-after during this period of architectural revival & have done several notable homes in our country club neighborhood. The level of craftsmanship showcases the care & attention seen during the Arts & Crafts movement w/ a push for handcrafted design married w/ natural, not machine-made, materials such as stone, brick, stained glass & wood. This is seen throughout the house via its exterior stepped plaster columns, interior hand-milled woodwork as well as the wide staircase, framed by geometric cut-outs, on the ornate balusters. The living area is wrapped in viewing areas incl. the large front, arched veranda, a light-filled, sun porch, a center atrium, & a long, upper-level sleeping porch. There are hardwood floors, period fixtures, tall crown moldings & custom built-ins. Another amenity is a recording studio that is awaiting customization. Perched on an expansive lot & sited on a gently sloped knoll that offers incredible panoramic views of the majestic San Gabriels that rise in the background. A long driveway circles the property & welcomes you in. This is an incredible opportunity to restore an architectural treasure to its former glory as a crown jewel of our foothills.
