Real Estate Market Trends for Pasadena California - August 2009 Home Sales Report

There's nothing like a visual representation as to what is going on in Pasadena's real estate market. The trends are easier to spot, especially when reviewing long term data. The graph below is for the period of 14 months. It's interesting to note that May of this year showed a significant turn around in the prices of homes sold at $770,000 on average, almost the same as last year in August.

When reviewing real estate data, always keep in mind that the housing statistics for a particular month show data that is a few months old. For example, if we are looking at a Pasadena home sale that sold in July of 2009, same house probably was listed for sale sometime in April or May, received an offer and was in an escrow period of 30 to 45 days.

 

Pasadena Real Estate Home Sales Statistics for June 2009 through August 2009:

As the summer comes to an end, we're seeing less housing inventory coming on the market from the high of 93 new home listings in June to 56 in August. Number of home sales decreased by about 20% from July to August, but the price per square foot held as well as the average house selling price increased to $779,146.

Overall, I'm seeing a lot of buyers in the $400,000 to 600,000 price range that are looking for Pasadena houses. As a home comes up that is well priced, multiple buyers bid and multiple situations are quite common.
