Fullerton Real Estate – Looking into 2013

Big Picture: Real Estate in the City of Fullerton has seen to normalize with a a swing upward in home prices. The numbers are largely positive. Not so much for Townhomes and Condos. Before I bore you with the details, here’s the scoop. This is great news for home sellers, but as a buyer, finding a home has been a difficult task.

The Details: 

For Fullerton Single Family Homes and Condos

New Listings were up 5.7 percent for single family homes and down 55 percent for Townhome / Condo properties. Nevertheless, there is a great shortage of homes for sale and a great number of buyers waiting to buy a home. If you’re a homeowner thinking about selling, you may want to consider right now! You’ll definitely get top dollar.

Pending Sales increased a 9.5 percent for single-family homes and down 38.7 percent for townhouse-condo properties.

The Median Sales Price was up a big 31 percent to $515,000 for single family homes and down 13.7 percent to $276,250 for Townhome / Condo properties. Prices will continue to rise as long as there is a strong demand for housing. There are many buyers wanting to live in the city of Fullerton.

Months Supply of Inventory decreased 62.5 percent for single-family units and 83.9 percent for townhouse-condo units. Months Supply of Inventory means how many months it will take to sell every home that is currently for sale in Fullerton. Single family homes are at 1.8 months supply and townhome / condos are 0.9 month supply. This is a very low number and is one of the main reasons home are starting to get up in price quickly. In a normal market, you would want to see about 3 months inventory.

It’s important to watch the economy, since job growth directly fuels home purchases and since the housing industry generates jobs. The economy has added about 6.1 million jobs over the past 35 months, a sluggish but encouraging trend. Interest rates are slowly moving higher in some regions, though the affordability picture remains extremely attractive.
