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 perfect Altadena Spanish! This pristine example of Spanish revival architecture has all the hallmarks of 1920s construction: hand-formed curves, troweled walls and handsome clay tile roof. The harmony of triple arches at the entry and gently pitched roof is complemented by alluring 'cat face' textured stucco exterior, an uncanny reflection of the decomposed granite path to the front door. The color palette here is earthy and alluring: cafe con leche walls, red grape trim and persimmon front door lead to a velvety warmwhite interior with light golden oak floors. Restraint of finishes inside allows the architecture to shine: coved ceilings with recessed trays and arched fireplace with stacked plaster mantle are perfect in their simplicity of form. A stunning arched picture window in the living room truly does offer the garden as art...and opposite: the right-sized dining room is a comfortable place to entertain and enjoy the peaceful vibe of this special home. Color enters the room in the adjoining updated kitchen, with rich emerald tile countertops, stainless appliances, two gleaming porcelain Shaws sinks and access to the generous backyard deck. The full bath, also updated with consideration, offers an arched shower tiled in sea glass green and built-in storage. Two bedrooms with dual-direction window exposure enjoy garden views and ample natural light. The hallway built-in linen cupboard and office nook are charming original features that have been miraculously preserved. Outdoor spaces here are private, offering room for dining, entertaining and quiet enjoyment, including ornamental, native and edible garden plantings. Chefs and entertainers will appreciate the outdoor kitchen sink and counter, as well as the grill-ready gas line piped to the back deck. Parking is easy in the driveway with automatic gate, or in the updated two-car garage outfitted with lighting and electrical - an easy-access bonus work/studio space ready to go. Close to all hiking, parks, farmer's market, coffee, restaurants and more to come in burgeoning artsy Altadena, it just doesn't get better than this.
