2012 Santa Maria CA End of Year Real Estate Market Update

2012 Santa Maria CA End of Year Real Estate Market Update

Interesting figures in this end of year report.  An approximate 3% increase in home sold in a one year period in Santa Maria.  List prices came down, but actual sale prices didn’t move much, only a slight decrease.  So, 2012 had 99.2% sales price compared to list price, and 2011 had a 97.9% sales price to list price comparison.  So, even though average sale price edged down about $2654 in dollars, bargaining room from list price appears to have tightened.  The number of foreclosures decreased 18% while the number of short sales increased 21.8%.
