How is the health of the East Bay real estate market?

Contra Costa County
Number of Active Listings are up 25–30% year-over-year, but New Listings are trending down since May at 15–20%. This means more homes are sitting on the market with an increase to 20 days-on-market. Median Sales Price is trending downward at 1–5% increase compared to last year.

Alameda County:
Similar story, except the median sales price = trending downward at 11% since last year.

Takeaways: The lack of supply is still the main driver for where the buyer pool is focusing their energy on. Homes that are dialed in are still garnering a lot of buyer interest and selling for high prices (albeit not what we saw 3 months ago). Whereas the homes that have room for criticism, end up sitting on the market and seeing price reductions. Of course, there are nuances to these trends by neighborhood.
