End of January Bay Area Real Estate Market Update

Throughout this month, we've seen sale prices dropping slightly and the ratio between sale price and list price decreasing as you can see in the graph below. Available homes are on market an average of 29 days, a 4 day increase from the days on market average of 25 we saw in December. This is likely due to the increase in available inventory.

We've seen trends continue with available inventory being down compared to previous months. Due to lower inventory, we're seeing current home prices matching the peak prices we saw during the summer months in 2021. 

The current 30 year fixed rate Jumbo Loan is resting at 3.125% interest (as of 1/24/22), which has remained the same throughout January. 

Crypto has gone through a period of devaluing with current stocks being worth only 65% of what they were during November of 2021. This can have a strong effect on buyers who have much of their assets tied into crypto and tech stocks.
