Resale Homes Are Holding in California

In spite of all the negative media coverage about the housing market, the real truth in California is that the median price is strong.

As a matter of fact, it's 3.2 percent higher for March, 2007 from March of 2006. Sellers apparently are hanging on to their asking prices and still get a reasonably close sales price. In fact, according to the California Association of Realtors, the current median price of $580,090 for a single family home is 3.9 percent higher than the February 2007 median home price. And, though certain counties may be seeing a drop in their median, Los Angeles and Orange Counties' median prices have increased in March, according to Realist, the provider of tax data for the Southern California MLS. Even the Bay Area increased, reversing its decline from last year. Dataquick's data also provides the same picture as CAR and Realist data: Sales volume has lowered while prices are holdling.
