2011 –year in review

Brackenbrae home in Boulder Creek, sold by MC Dwyer 2011

In 2011, the  average home price fell when compared to 2010.   125 homes sold in Boulder Creek and Brookdale during 2011.   The average home sales price was $278,013 (off about 14.5% compared to last year), taking an average of just over 3 months (109 days) on the market prior to going into escrow.

 

 

Why did prices fall?    The way I see it, the main reason is that the number of higher end homes – those selling for more than $500,000 – shrank from 24 in 2010 to only 10 in 2011.    On the other hand, in the affordable and fixer-upper home segment, 39 homes sold in 2011 for less than $200,000, similar to the 33 that sold in in 2010.    The number of distressed sales held fairly steady: 63 homes were foreclosures, while 19 were short sales.     So in reality, prices fell due to the mix of homes that actually sold as much as anything else.    Curious what your Boulder Creek or Brookdale home might be worth?    Ask here for a free and confidential estimate – over the internet or in person – your choice.
