July 2014 Aaroe Market Reports for Pasadena and the Western San Gabriel Valley

The July Pasadena area Aaroe market report for 2014 had a couple of interesting indications:

  1. Inventory is picking up with more homes for sale
  2. Prices are continuing to rise overall
  3. San Marino and South Pasadena prices and inventory have flattened

Buyers are continuing to have a hard time with lack of inventory. Though the Pasadena area summer selling season has brought more inventory, it has also brought more competition. There are still many cash transactions and that trend does not seem to be going away anytime soon.

The threat of rate hikes seems to be subdued at the moment with recent lows in rates. However, as the fed continues to tapper its bond purchases and looks to next year to raise interest rates, mortgage rates are likely to rise in the coming months.

If you want advice on your real estate portfolio or have any questions about what the market is doing, what your property is worth or purchasing a new property, email me at b.road@theroadconnection.com.

Aaroe Market Report on Home Sales in Pasadena & Surrounding Communities YTD – June 2014

The Aaroe Market Report indicates that the real estate market in the Pasadena area remains robust with prices rising and generally higher sales volume.  While inventory has Aaroe_market_report_for_San_Gabriel_Valley-06-14been low since the beginning of the year, the summer season seems to be bringing out more sellers. With a little additional inventory there is a glimmer of hope for inventory levels to start catching up with demand.

We still continue to see multiple offers with many  buyers becoming frustrated with fierce competition, while overpriced or “quirky” properties tend to take longer to sell and often end up selling at a discount.

If you are thinking about buying or selling your home, it is important that you get a pulse and clear picture of what the market is doing. Contact me today or call me at 626-502-7623 to find out what is behind the numbers and what you can expect when selling or buying your new home in the Pasadena area.
