Santa Clara County Real Estate Market

Average Sales Price and Sales-to-List-Price Ratio

Santa Clara County Real Estate Trends: 12-month Average Sales Price and Average Sales to List Price Ratio by Month

Santa Clara County home prices continued 2017’s meteoric rise until March, 2018, when a dramatic increase in the number of homes on market allowed frustrated buyers a chance to catch a breath. Average sales prices declined consistently until October when the number of homes on market dropped again, causing a resurgence in prices. After that, the downward trend continued until February when again prices began to rise. Bidding wars also tailed off in most areas as sale to list price ratios have plummeted from 13% over list in March to dip below list in January. Since then, bidding has increased moderately as the market has resumed its upward trend.

Sales as a Function of Price

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

The histogram above shows the breakdown of residential home sales by price range. Here we see there are four peak market segments: the first from $600,000-$1,000,000; the second at $1,200,000 to $1,400,000; and the third at $2,000,000 to $3,000,000. However, whereas in 2017 almost half of the homes sold for $1,000,000 or less, that midpoint threshold shifted upwards to the $1,100,000 to $1,200,000 range in 2018 and is holding there now.

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

Time on market as a function of price

Whereas in 2018 the average home was in contract in 15 days or less, properties now are staying on the market 3 weeks longer, with most categories selling in less than a month. For homes in the $5,000 and up range, average time on market has climbed from 46 days in 2017 to 69 days in early 2019, to 79+ days in May 2019.

Sales to list price as a function of price

In the sale-price-to-list-price-ration histogram here, we see that offers average 2.1% percent above list or less for all but the lowest price brackets, with both the high and low end averaging under list. This makes pricing a listing and selecting an offer price both much more challenging. Here is where your Realtor’s experience really comes in handy.
