Burlingame Hills Market Update - August 2011 - Seller's Advantage
Sellers have the advantage in the Burlingame neighborhood of Burlingame Hills, as compared to real estate markets for the region overall. There have been 15 single family homes sold through August, as compared to 22 at the same point last year. This decline has been driven by a lack of inventory, rather than lack of demand. The number of new listings is down about 25% from last year. End of month inventory of Burlingame Hills homes for sale was at five and six, in July and August, respectively. Last summer, there were regularly 10 to 12 unsold homes on the market at the end of each month. Less available inventory means that buyers have more competition and have to act quickly when new listings come on the market.
Prices appear to be holding firm in Burlingame Hills. The ratio of the sale price to list price has averaged 99% in 2011, versus 94% in 2010. This suggests that fewer buyers are successfully negotiating contracts much below the asking price (this statistic does not factor into play the original list price of homes that were price reduced and then sold right away...so some of the increase may be due to more aggressive pricing).
Homes are not staying on the market for as long as they did in 2010. The average days on market -- a measure of how long a home has been on the market from list date to sale date -- has declined from 55 days in 2010 to 40 days in 2011.
