Your Silicon Valley REALTOR® Market Update
January 2023by Erin Benford


Take a look at the current available market statistics for last month.

The links are below. Notice that the December single family home and townhouse/condo prices are slightly down, year over year, and the time to sell a property is up slightly.

Problem? No! You are looking at a NORMAL market, and we can be very happy to be back to this normal without the stress of writing many offers before getting a new home. Sellers don’t fret. 30 days on the market instead of 7 is much more normal, and not so frenetic for you too.

The very good news is that we are seeing prices stabilize and not swing wildly up or down.

Are you renting still? Why are you letting your monthly rent cost go up? Across the country, it continues to climb. The solution to your monthly housing price is to purchase a place and lock in your monthly payment.

Don’t worry about the mortgage rates being about 7%. That is historically low, but most younger people have never seen rates higher than 5%. Buy the property at the current price, lock it in, and refi that loan when the rates go down. If you wait, the housing prices will be on their way up again.

Check out the Santa Clara County stats below.
