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%.

Wonderful French doors open out to a large rear patio area shaded by gracious elm trees . The yard is very spacious and private, complete with a sweet view of the mountains, three raised beds and a trail up to a horse corral! Use your imagination and create your own oasis or enjoy it as is. The 2.4kW solar system is paid for and was installed in 2016 along with a new 220 Amp electrical panel. Seller says energy produced offsets energy consumed independent of time of use and the cost of energy. It offsets the current owners' electric costs by 100%. In 2018 the house was retrofitted under CA EBB program making the home eligible for reduced cost of earthquake insurance. Playset and playhouse are not included in sale.
