Spring Homebuying Season

Spring homebuying season kicks off strongly as prices and sales propel higher, C.A.R. reports

 

  • Existing, single-family home sales totaled 416,580 in March on a seasonally adjusted annualized rate, up 4 percent from February and up 6.9 percent from March 2016.
  • March's statewide median home price was $517,020, up 8 percent from February and up 6.8 percent from March 2016.
  • At the regional level, the San Francisco Bay Area, Inland Empire, and Los Angeles metro area all experienced healthy annual sales gains of 6.4 percent, 8.5 percent, and 6.7 percent, respectively.

LOS ANGELES (April 17) – California's spring housing market posted a strong start to the year as existing home sales and median price registered healthy gains in March on both a monthly and annual basis, as did every major region in the state, the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.) said today.

Closed escrow sales of existing, single-family detached homes in California remained above the 400,000 benchmark for a full year and totaled a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 416,580 units in March, according to information collected by C.A.R. from more than 90 local REALTOR® associations and MLSs statewide. The statewide sales figure represents what would be the total number of homes sold during 2017 if sales maintained the March pace throughout the year. It is adjusted to account for seasonal factors that typically influence home sales. The March figure was up 4 percent from the 400,720 level in February and up 6.9 percent compared with home sales in March 2016 of a revised 389,770.

"March's solid sales performance was likely influenced by the specter of higher interest rates, which may have pushed buyers off the sidelines and close escrow before rates moved higher," said C.A.R. President Geoff McIntosh. "The strong housing demand, coupled with a shortage of available homes for sale, is pushing prices higher as would-be buyers try to purchase before affordability gets worse."

California housing market loses momentum...

California housing market loses momentum in August as affordability crunch stifles home sales, C.A.R. reports

- Existing, single-family home sales totaled 420,360 in August on a seasonally adjusted annualized rate, up 1.1 percent from July and down 2.2 percent from August 2015.
- At $526,580, August's statewide median home price is at its highest level in nearly seven years.
- Year-to-date sales are down from the previous year for the second month in a row by 0.5 percent.

LOS ANGELES (Sept. 15) – California home sales downshifted in August as low housing affordability and a tight supply of homes for sale cut into demand, especially in high cost areas of the San Francisco Bay region, the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.) said today.

Closed escrow sales of existing, single-family detached homes in California totaled a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 420,360 units in August, according to information collected by C.A.R. from more than 90 local REALTOR® associations and MLSs statewide. The statewide sales figure represents what would be the total number of homes sold during 2016 if sales maintained the August pace throughout the year. It is adjusted to account for seasonal factors that typically influence home sales.

The August figure was up 1.1 percent from the revised 415,840 level in July and down 2.2 percent compared with home sales in August 2015 of a revised 429,900. Home sales remained above the 400,000 pace for the fifth straight month, but sales have declined year over year for the sixth consecutive month.
