Almaden Valley homes for sale and real estate market conditionsThe Almaden Valley real estate market is still in a stable sellers market. Winter brought about a steep drop in inventory, and summer failed to bring enough new listings to fulfill demand. There must be either a lot more inventory, or significantly less demand, before we see anything close to a balanced market. The Almaden Valley market is noticing minor softening, with homes selling, on average, slightly above list price at 102.6%. Turnover has dropped slightly to an average of 18 days on market (or DOM). This tells us that while there may be a slight warming trend, Almaden Valley is in a sustained, hot sellers market.

Please find the current statistics for single family homes (houses & duet homes) from my Almaden Valley real estate report (click on link for more info).

The data shows a strong sellers market remaining fairly consistent despite increasing inventory over the summer. The best homes will see multiple offers, a response to low inventory and high demand.

Almaden Valley Condo Market:

The condo market in San Jose 95120 looks wacky due to almost no condo or townhouse sales recently, and that is flowing from the lack of listings. Frequently, there are less than 10 listings in a given month. Currently, the data shows a mere 2 sold, 4 pending, and 4 active. Average turnaround is low at 28 days, but higher than the housing market. On average, properties are selling 101.2% above list price. What we can glean from this relatively little data is that there is still  greater demand than inventory creating a sellers market, but not as strong a sellers market for condos in this area as for single family homes. Almaden Valley condos are in a hot seller’s market.

Here are the Almaden condo and townhome stats but with so few sales each month, they are not terribly relevant:
