The headline below sure caught my eye when reading the newsletter I get from the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® called C. A. R. Newsline. When I read these statistics for California, I always check what the same is for Napa Valley in my multiple listing service, BAREIS.
As you can see from the numbers below, Napa County for the same period had a median price increase of 30.7% and average price increase of 34.9%. Not bad considering what we just went through the previous four years. Hopefully you experienced similar gains.
CA Home Price Records Largest Year-to-Year Gain Since 1980
Median home prices across the state continued to show signs of recovery thanks to robust sales growth and a continued housing supply shortage, C.A.R. reported this week.
In fact, the surge in median home price in May led to the largest year-over-year price gain in at least the last 33 years. Based on information collected by C.A.R., the statewide median price of an existing, single-family detached home was $417,350 in May, which is an increase of 3.6 percent from April’s median price of $402,760.
May’s price was up 31.9 percent from a revised $316,460 recorded in May 2012, marking 15 straight months of annual price increases and the eleventh consecutive month of double-digit annual gains.
In comparison to April, sales in May were up 1.9 percent, with 431,370 existing, single-family detached California homes being sold. The state’s Unsold Inventory Index is noticeably down from last year, which speaks to the diminished supply of available homes for sale. While a six- to seven-month supply is considered normal, the rate was 2.6 months in May.
