The Sunnyvale real estate market for condos and townhomes

The Sunnyvale real estate market for condominiums and townhouses is showing plenty of up and down, but several indicators are hotter than the month before, such as the sale to list price ratio, days on the market, and days of inventory. Home prices slipped a little, but this may not be values going down so much as less expensive condos selling rather than more costly townhomes.

The closed sales (as seen on the Sunnyvale RE Report for condos and townhomes) show that properties are often selling well over list price on average, and a hair more than the month before (which may be seasonally normal). Homes are selling quickly – in just 13 days. Inventory ticked up, but not too much.
