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%.

    ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES!!If houses had voices, what a tale these walls could tell. Statuesque trees grace the entrance of the 16,000+ square foot lot upon which sits a 1913 vintage farm-house style home. .While in need of some real tender, loving care, the charm remains intact. The opportunity exists to restore this grande dame to her glory days and create an estate to rival those of the surrounding neighborhood. The possibilities are endless.
