LOS ANGELES (Sept. 16) – California’s housing market continued to improve in August as home sales climbed to their highest level in more than a decade as the median home price broke last month’s record and hit another high, the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.) said today.
Closed escrow sales of existing, single-family detached homes in California totaled a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 465,400 units in August, according to information collected by C.A.R. from more than 90 local REALTOR® associations and MLSs statewide. The statewide annualized sales figure represents what would be the total number of homes sold during 2020 if sales maintained the August pace throughout the year. It is adjusted to account for seasonal factors that typically influence home sales. Click here to finish reading.
The housing market continued to improve at the tail end of the summer as U.S. home sales soared to a level not seen since before the Great Recession. A solid increase in new purchase mortgage applications, a dip in the California unemployment rate, and a rise in the consumer sentiment are all encouraging signs of a better tomorrow. The leveling off in market activity in recent weeks, however, should serve as a reminder that we need to keep it real and be prepared for a slowdown as the season gradually ends. U.S. Home Sales Hit Highest Level in 14 Years: Existing home sales increased on a month-to-month basis for the third consecutive month in August and exceeded last year’s sales by 10.5 percent. Sales climbed to 6 million units and the level was the strongest since December 2006. Supply shortage, however, remained a constraint to sales as inventory of for-sale properties fell 18.6 percent from last year to 1.49 million. The national median price increased 11.4 percent over the past year to $310,000. Finish reading here.

The Sugar Pine produces the longest pine cones in the world, reaching up to two feet long and weighing up to a whopping 2 pounds. Since the 1800’s, logging and fire suppression dramatically decreased the sugar pines in the Tahoe Basin. Thanks to your support, the Sugar Pine Foundation and UC – Davis, reforestation of the sugar pines is underway. Watch where you park, pine cones like to fall in the Autumn.
