Feb 16 2013 Willow Glen Real Estate Update

10 houses sold this week for an average of $775,896. That’s actually lower than the 12 week average of $841,910. You can’t make much of any one week’s average, but it’s worth watching. Meanwhile, 10 new houses have come up for sale in Willow Glen within the last week with an average list price of $775,800, which means inventory is unchanged with 50 homes for sale in Willow Glen.

Across the bay area, the market for condos and townhouses is especially hot. “Condos — the affordable homes chosen by many first-time buyers — have made bigger annual gains in asking price than single-family homes in all parts of the Bay Area, according to real estate website Trulia. Sales are at their highest level since late 2008, according to DataQuick, a housing information company. ” I have a beautiful town house coming to MLS next week just outside Willow Glen at 1363 Arbor Park. It is a 3 bed 1.5 bath, 1310 sqft., remodeled. Listing it a t $420,000.

One of my favorite new listings is 2079 Ardis Dr. — a super charming 2 bed 2 bath with a side yard that serves as a nice ‘back yard’ with a huge lemon tree and ample space for entertaining and play. The kitchen features a unique farm sink and the whole house is warm and inviting. Listed at $760,000, its only drawback for some is that it only has two bedrooms.

If you want to learn about any of the homes that just sold or came on market or hear about a few listings I have coming soon, call or text me at 408-887-3225 or email Holly@HollyBarr.com.
