March 2012 Newsletter w/February 2012 Sales Statistics

It’s hard to believe that it’s already the middle of March!

Resale home inventory in some areas continues to be low.  There are many buyers waiting for the right property to come on the market,  and we are seeing more and more properties getting  multiple offers.  If you are contemplating selling your home this year, please call me for a free, no obligation market assessment.

Please find below February 2012 individual community sales data for detached single-family homes.  I have also included active listing data for detached single family homes in those same communities.

For those of you who would like more complete statistical data and graphs, I have posted links to CCAR’sFebruary 2012 Local Market Updates for both detached single family homes and condo/townhouses on my blog: http://wp.me/p1Y6ng-21.  If you are interested in more specific neighborhood information, please give me call.

Please visit my website at http://www.florencejones.com/. From my home page you can search for homes, follow Contra Costa County median home prices, review quarterly market reports for Contra Costa County, read posts and link to my Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Florence-DeAgostini-Jones/156256497773480; Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/FlorenceJonesRE ; and real estate blog:  https://florencejonesre.wordpress.com/

If you are ever in the neighborhood, please stop by my office at 51 Moraga Way, Suite 1 in Orinda – just down the street from the Orinda Theater and right next to Peets Coffee.

Warm regards,
Florence
