Homes are Selling Quickly in Santa Cruz, CA


Not only in Santa Cruz, CA but Nationwide we are seeing homes sell quickly in what is mostly a Seller's Market.  The average number of days on market has dropped dramatically over the past few years.  In Santa Cruz County we are currently averaging about 45 days on market.  Compare that to 2011 when at times we were closer to 100 days on market in Santa Cruz county!

Here is a graph that shows how long it is taking to sell a home:

You can see that in 2013 homes were selling faster than they have been since 2005.  We have seen a big recovery in housing prices in Santa Cruz county since 2012 and the shorter length of time it is taking to sell a home is indicative of that.

What I am seeing personally in this Seller's Market in Santa Cruz is that any home priced within a reasonable range should have an offer within 1 week, if not multiple offers.  Even homes that need work, have un-permitted areas or are not in the best locations are selling quickly if priced right.  By far the majority of my listings this year have sold with multiple offers and for over asking price.  One home needed a new septic, heating system, electrical and still sold over asking price!

If you are considering the sale of your home in Santa Cruz, this may be the perfect time to get top dollar for your home.
