Santa Clara County Real Estate Trends: 12-month Residential sales by price range

The histogram above shows the breakdown of Monterey County residential home sales by price range. Here we see the bulk of the Monterey County market is in the range from $200,000 to $1,000,000 despite the high prices in coastal areas such as Pebble Beach, Carmel, and Pacific Grove. Within this range, homes selling from $400,000 to $600,000 constitute the bulk of the sales. This shows that most of the homes sold in Monterey County are in middle class neighborhoods, not the wealth areas.

Monterey County Real Estate: 6-month Average: Days to Sell versus Price Range

The average days to sell histogram shows that for homes priced between $400,000 and $1,200,000, sellers can expect to be in contract in 1 to 2 months, compared while moster higher price brackets take 3 months or more to sell, suggesting listing agents are not properly targeting the most opportune buyers in their marketing.

In the sale-price-to-list-price-ration histogram here, we see that offers average more than 93.8% of list for the bulk of the market. This is a normal market and indicates that homes in the area are well priced for the demand. The average of 8.9% below list for the over $5,000,000 indicates either that sellers there are expecting too much for their properties or the agents are not properly marketing them to the most opportune buyers.
