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%.

    Probably a total waste of time to even write this description because anyone " in the know" will certainly know what a colossal gem this is! I will do my best for those who may not realize that a "fixer" like 1832 Mendocino is literally a dream come true for both professional fixers and owner users. Yes--its a total fixer and NO, seller will not be generous with credits or repairs, but OH BOY what an opportunity. Good chance we have original hardwood floors under the protective layer of carpet, lots of charming " built in ranchy" goodness, and plenty of natural light. All located walking distance to shops & restaurants. It really does not get any better than this! Come check it out ASAP and bring your contractors when you go. I don't suspect this one will last for long so HURRY.
