The statistics are in for the residential real estate sales in April 2010 across Santa Clara County and things continue to look up; once again there are more pending sales than homes available on the market – this is a sign that buyers are purchasing homes at a good clip relative to the rate at which new listings are coming on the market.  This is a great indicator or baromoter of the strength of the Santa Clara County real estate market.  Here are the county numbers for houses (and duet homes):
