The average median price is UP and the numbers are showing the number of distressed properties shrinking (very specific to our second homes market and not necessarily true for the rest of California) . The numbers are more or less comparable to last month except for the inventory, which has significantly reduced. Still, our summer is bringing lots of “real buyers” into town despite the heat. Although there is less competition, there are still multiple offers on many of the properties.
