What's Happening In The Market?
March Updates

Please note: this SFAR data is for February 2024

U.S. existing-home sales grew 3.1% month-over-month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.00 million, exceeding economists’ expectations and marking the strongest sales pace since August 2023, according to the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). Falling interest rates late last year, coupled with a recent uptick in inventory, helped existing-home sales to climb following last month’s decline, with monthly gains reported in the Midwest, South, and West regions.

New Listings were up 28.3 percent for single family homes and 18.2 percent for Condo/TIC/Coop properties. Pending Sales increased 31.7 percent for single family homes and 33.7 percent for Condo/TIC/Coop properties.

The Median Sales Price was up 9.7 percent to $1,580,000 for single family homes but decreased 5.0 percent to $1,104,000 for Condo/TIC/Coop properties. Months Supply of Inventory remained flat for single family units but was up 12.9 percent for Condo/TIC/Coop units.

Total inventory heading into February stood at 1.01 million units, a 2% increase from the previous month and a 3.1% increase from the same time last year, for a 3 months’ supply at the current sales pace, according to NAR. Although buyers may find additional options in their home search, inventory remains below the 5-6 months’ supply of a balanced market, and demand is exceeding supply. As a result, existing-home sales prices have continued to rise, climbing 5.1% year-over-year to $379,100.

Welcome!

For Condos, both for sale and for lease, in the South of Market Area and Mission Bay it's a buyer's market. With the recent influx of Generation AI companies hiring locally the property showings have increased dramatically. So, keep your referrals coming! It is a Great time to Buy; You can refinance later!

Real Estate Loans Update:
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) conforming loan limits increase to $766,550 in 2024. Up 5.5% compared to the current limit of $726,200. This is positive for first time home buyers coupled with the recent decrease in mortgage rates.  The seller can buy down the loan interest rate for the buyer or contribute to the closing costs.

Please call me any time for information about the neighborhood or current market conditions. I look forward to working with you!

  Read my most recent testimonial:  

When my husband and I decided to sell our condo (#1404) in the Arden we weren't sure what to expect in this market. Through Jane's hard work, diligence, experience, and expertise the condo sold within 3 weeks and over asking! We couldn't be happier! Having a Realtor who lives in the building is a big plus. The marketing plan for the condo including the website, photography and staging was very professional. Jane went above and beyond by finding temporary storage for some of our furniture and handling the inspections, moves, etc. Jane is willing to help out in any way that's needed and all with a smile. She is a joy to work with and we highly recommend her.
