DEL MAR, CA Market Report for the Week of February 11, 2013
Inventory has been lightening lately and the Market Action Index has been trending up. Though days-on-market is increasing, these are mildly positive indications for the market.
Supply and Demand
Home sales have been exceeding new inventory for several weeks. However because of excess inventory, prices have not yet stopped falling. Should the sales trend continue, expect prices to level off soon and potentially to resume their climb from there. Watch prices as the market transitions from a Buyer’s market to a Seller’s market.
The Market Action Index answers the question “How’s the Market?” by measuring the current rate of sale versus the amount of the inventory. Index above 30 implies Seller’s Market conditions. Below 30, conditions favor the buyer.
Again this week we see a downward notch for prices. Pricing has been weak in recent weeks and versus their absolute-high levels. The Market Action Index is a good leading indicator for the durability of this trend.
