Your Silicon Valley REALTOR® Market Update
May 2024by Erin Benford

It is still spring, but it looks like our seasonal summer slowdown is a bit early. The Silicon Valley market appears to have a buyer slowdown, while there is evidence that more sellers are getting ready for the market. I have this information from both the agents in our offices, and from my favorite home inspector, who has been busy. If you are not used to California custom, upon the advice of their agents, most sellers prepare pre-market with home and pest inspections.

These slowdowns are typically at least once, sometimes twice a year. Buyers have other things to do (holidays or graduations, perhaps), and just as quickly as the slowdown began, the buyers begin buying again. One year, in my 21+ years of real estate, the slowdown lasted for the entire month of June, but sales activity then started up again for the rest of the year. A slowdown rarely seems to last that long.

What’s the takeaway here? If you are a buyer, this is a great time to be buying. Jump in, when other buyers are slowing down, before they get back to looking for their property again. When buyers zig, then it’s time for you to zag.

Check out the most recent Santa Clara County stats below. Note that, once again, prices are up, days on market is down.
