Brea Local Market Update for June 2012
The market update is for June 2012 for the city of Brea, CA. Real estate statistics are taken June 2012 and comparing them how they were at the same time last year, June 2011.
New listings fell 20.7% for the month of June. There were only 28 new listings. On the flip side pending home sales, those in escrow, rose 43.5% from 23 in 2011 to 33 this year. Plus the uptrend continued from May 2012 at 105.9%. Actual closed sales, meaning buyer actually bought and now owns the home (property) rose 26.3%.
Home sales continue to grow as was the case in May 2012. Look for home sales to continue strong through the 3rd quarter and into the 4th quarter of 2012.
Also continueing the trend of May, inventory of homes for sale in the city of Brea and the suply of homes for sale in Brea are down again.
Comparing to last year, the Brea’s inventory of homes dropped 62% to only 35. The months supply of inventory, meaning how long will it take to sell these 35 homes is 1.6 months or about 7 weeks.
In a low inventory market, the trend usually is that home prices will increase as the supply is low. As long as the demand is strong this may be the case. Home sellers in Brea received an average of an extra 4.3% profit meaning that the seller received 4.3% more that what they originally put the house up for sale for. Say you listed your home at $500,000, you’d receive an offer at $521,500. Again, not too bad.
Same as last month, going into summer, Brea home sellers should be able to get a little more for their home. Don’t think you should price your home high now. No. Be competitive and downright aggressive in your price strategy and you will see the buyer traffic increase as well as the offers and ultimately the higher final sales price.
