With so few sales in the condo sector this data can sometimes swing dramatically. This month shows that closed sales and active listings fell by half since last month while pending sales grew. Closed and pending sales and active inventory are all short of last year. This tiny pool of active listings can’t keep up with demand pushing fierce competition in Willow Glen’s condo sector. The sales to list price ratio rose to a hot 104.6%, well above last year. The Willow Glen condo market has kept up plenty of momentum all year, and overall it’s consistently active in a prolonged hot seller’s market.

Like the greater Silicon Valley region, Willow Glen is comprised of many smaller micro-markets. It will be different in north Willow Glen, Palm Haven, The Willows, or in a walk-to-town area than it will be in the Dry Creek area or St. Francis Woods neighborhood – let alone differences for school districts, price point, zip code and home type! It’s a patchwork of all these smaller markets, in other words. What’s happening in one segment might be very different than in another. Disclaimers aside, overall it is still a seller’s market in Willow Glen.
