Milpitas real estate market

Milpitas Real Estate MarketThe Milpitas real estate market has shown slight seasonal cooling and overall remains a strong seller’s market.

Here are a few points from the latest update to the Milpitas single family homes market, with more data and analysis in the article below:

  • Only 8 single family homes closed in January, so take all sales data with a grain of salt!! Major swings are not likely to be indicative of overall market trends, but of the few individual homes sold that month.
  • Compared to this time last year homes sold 3.2% higher and over asking, averaging 102.9% in January.
  • The average single family home price in January was $1,483,760 (-4.1% from the month before, and up +11.5% from a year ago). 
  • The median sale price followed similar trends at $1,435,000 (-7.4% from the month before, and up +21.1% from last year)
  • Listings averaged 24 days on market, slower than the month before and slower than this time last year.
  • Closed sales rose a hair from the month prior, inventory more than doubled, and pending sales fell by nearly half. Compared to this time last year closed sales are even, pending sales have slipped a hair, and available inventory continues to fall short.

Demand remains high in Milpitas with softer early-winter activity. Unless inventory grows dramatically buyers will continue to struggle with the severe housing shortage and the market will remain red hot for sellers.
