San Jose Real Estate Market
Market Trends in June 2014


After a year of stabilization in 2013, the San Jose Real Estate Market has picked up again since January 2014, seems to have reached a plateau in June 2014 but still remains one the most active real estate markets in the US coupled with a consistently low housing inventory.

Here are some of the latest trends to watch on the San Jose Real Estate Market if you are currently considering selling or buying a home in San Jose, CA:
 
  • Median Sold Price for Single Family Homes in San Jose has increased 8% year-on-year and reached $787K (vs. $725K a year earlier).

  • Active Inventory of Single Family Homes for sale in San Jose was down significantly Y/Y (-20%) but remains in line with Spring time inventory levels (706 in May and 615 in April 2014).

  • Average Days on the Market (DOM) for Single Family Homes sold in San Jose is currently at 17 days (vs. 23 days a year earlier) which is a new 12-months low and a clear signal of a strong seller's market. Now more than ever is the time to sell your home if you were planning to do so this year!

  • Price Per Square Feet for sold Single Family Homes in San Jose keeps climbing and has reached yet another annual high at $501 (vs $447 a year ago), which is another sign that home buyers are paying top dollars to secure their dream home in this tough real estate market.

Market trends for condos and town homes for sale on the San Jose Real Estate Market are strong as well. The good news at least is that active inventory is up lately (243 active listings in June 2014), even though still down 25% Y/Y.

Median Sold Price of condos and town homes in San Jose has plateau-ed in June 2014 ($460K) after reaching an yearly high in May 2014 at $468K (vs. $433K a year ago).

Average Days on the Market for condos and town homes is currently at 21 days. It is comforting to notice that the Price per Square Feet for condos and town homes at least has stabilized around $400 since March 2014, but is still up 10% from one year ago.

Overall, it seems that the San Jose Real Estate Market for both single family homes and condos continues to thrive in June 2014, with many home buyers currently looking and willing to pay. While home sellers are progressively coming back to the market attracted by current market conditions in their favor, housing inventory is still low in comparison with last year.

 
Mortgage Rates Trends in Silicon Valley
  Market Trends in June 2014


Since January 2014, mortgage rates in California (30-Year Fixed Rate) have regained strength and peaked to 4.70% earlier this year, but are currently down back to their January level,  just above 4.1%.

Although some borrowers might find these mortgage rates on the high side, the chart below from Freddie Mac (30-Year Fixed Rate Mortgage Average since 1970) will hopefully help put things in perspective:
