MARKET DIAGNOSIS | AUGUST 2023
👉 August is usually the "slump" month in Pacifica Real Estate but it was HOT 🔥 causing pricing to increase across the board...
🚨 The floor has risen on Single-Family Homes. Low August inventory and strong comps set by hungry buyers inched pricing up along the board, even with rising interest rates. What?... I know. Weird, right?
🚀 The most active price range was the $1.4mm-$1.6mm sector. But the $1.6mm-$1.8mm had a major comeback!
📊 AUGUST COMPS
26 CLOSINGS (VS. JULY = 14 CLOSINGS)
🍁 FALL SEASON FORECAST
The usually predictable influx of inventory post-Labor Day has already been rolling onto the market over the past week. With 10 listings hitting the MLS in the past 7 days, the season has been forced to kick off early.
With increased inventory and rates, pricing should flatten a bit in the Fall market. But remember, although pricing is up across the board, rates are still keeping prices suppressed.
Regardless of the pricing uptick, prices are still being suppressed by these rates! The way to take advantage of these high rates is to buy now and refinance later.
🍎 Food for thought...How much will prices go up once rates drop?
If you have a property between $1.1mm-$1.6mm the market has plenty of appetite. Those in the luxury segment at $1.8mm+ you may want to hang tight. There are low signs of life at this price point, and you'll optimize by holding out until Q1 2024 or when rates drop...
