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.

    After purchasing a large parcel on Atchison Street in early 1913, the Ludlow family commissioned the prominent Pasadena design and build firm Foss Designing and Building Company to construct a Prairie-style home, a popular style in their hometown of Chicago. When the home was completed later that year, it was a great example of the symmetrical Prairie design with its horizontal massing, stucco walls, bands of casement and fixed windows, hipped composition roof, deep eaves, and full-width front porch. For over a century, the 'J. Wyman Ludlow House' has served its occupants well and is a wonderful opportunity for a very fortunate buyer to own a piece of Pasadena history.The 3,371 square foot two-story floor plan includes 4 bedrooms, an office, and 3 bathrooms on an impressive 18,488 square foot lot. Entering the home through the large, covered front porch, the living room is charming with leaded casement windows, recessed lighting, a fireplace, and built-in bookcases.

The dining area features another large casement window with two flanking French windows, base and crown moldings, two pendant light fixtures, and recessed lights.

The space opens into the large family room, which offers recessed lighting, another fireplace, and an office area. Upstairs are all 4 bedrooms and 2 additional bathrooms. The primary bedroom features multiple windows, hardwood flooring, a vaulted ceiling, and views of the San Gabriel mountains. The two east-facing bedrooms are nicely sized, with a full bathroom in between. The rear room can be used as an office or bedroom and includes several newer windows with views of the backyard below. The grounds are quite amazing. The front yard is beautifully appointed, with a walkway lined with Rose bushes, multiple landscaped planters, and large, mature trees. The rear yard includes a large grassy area, wood deck, standalone pergola, built-in barbeque, and heated pool. Additional features of note are a detached garage, retrofitted foundation, upgraded plumbing, dual HVAC units, newer flooring, a short distance to Old Town Pasadena, the Rose Bowl Complex, and multiple hiking trails.The 'J. Wyman Ludlow House' is truly one-of-a-kind.
