Huntington Beach Single Family Homes January 31, 2012 Update
By Scot Campbell– February 6, 2012
Ground Hog Day is past and the unofficial beginning of the spring home buying season is upon us. So, will there be six more weeks of “housing market winter” or will spring be sprung early?
You will be pleasantly surprised to hear that the number of Huntington Beach single family closed sales in the first 31 days of 2012 is higher than 2011… nine more sales this year than last, which is a 16.07% increase.
The average price per square foot was down 5% from 2011 to $335.41.
The average days on market fell from 115 to 101.
The average discount from original list price was just 6% compared to 8% in 2011.
So, the market statistics are all improving except for average price per square foot… will this be the transition year for prices? It is too early to tell… but I will be reporting again in about 30 days.
This spring will be a very good time to buy and sell as mortgage interest rates offer an affordability window which lets buyers lock in a low payment and sellers find a ready, willing, and able buyer.
