The Sunnyvale real estate market for condos and townhomes

The Sunnyvale real estate market for the condominiums and townhouses in Sunnyvale has softened quite a bit in recent months.

The closed sales (as seen on the Sunnyvale RE Report for condos and townhomes) show that properties are often selling below list price in this segment of the market and the Sunnyvale house price trend is moving downward, but there are still more pending sales than active listings. This is not a buyer’s market.
