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%.

    Private gated compound is infused with an overall Mediterranean flavor. Jasmine covered property walls and parterre garden with blooming sweet pea and so many varieties of fruit trees introduce this romantic Mediterranean-style home and adjacent two-story guest house. Paneled oak front door with gauged stone surround is both rustic and elegant and perfectly introduces the thick rounded arches and deep chiseled beams found inside. A generous living room with centered fireplace views the garden. This is a great home for entertaining with living room, family room, formal dining room and kitchen all communicating well to a variety of curated spaces outdoors. The beautifully designed kitchen is special with La Cornue range, hand sculpted plaster hood, custom cabinetry, huge center island and paneled Sub-Zero refrigerator. Next to the living room French doors offer a surprise: an intimate outdoor courtyard. Outside the dining room, overlooking the large sparkling pool, is the built-in barbecue and dining patio. A tropic hideaway sits above the pool, secluded and private it's a nice place to read and large enough for a long feasting table. The guest house is large with an airy upstairs and a bathroom on both floors; the downstairs is convenient to the pool and upstairs space is well-lit with windows on three sides. As imagined by its current residents, the property is filled with little revelations and private surprises. There is much to discover and experience here.
