The phrase, “What a difference a year makes” could not be more appropriate than in today’s Tri-Valley real estate market.
Last year at this time, homes in Livermore, Dublin, and Pleasanton, as well as the rest of the Bay Area, were selling within days of being on the market. Hordes of buyers competed for the limited inventory, some paying cash, others offering tens of thousands of dollars over asking price, and many waving contingencies.
Currently, the August 2022 Real Estate market update for the Tri-Valley reports more inventory and lower prices.
Home Prices Lower for the First Time in a Year
Overall, home sale prices dipped to record low prices for the second month in a row, even dipping below July 2021 prices. While the Tri-Valley isn’t quite as indicative as the rest of the East Bay, we aren’t seeing the record pricing we did last year.
According to David Stark of Bay East, rising interest rates and concern that prices are still out of buyers’ reach are responsible for guiding these changes.
Livermore Home Sale Reports
Livermore homes for sale have more than doubled since last year, with 67 homes for sale last July and 137 homes for sale this July, a change of 104%.
Livermore home prices remain fairly the same year-over-year, with July 2021 averaging $1,155,000 and July 2022 averaging $1,160,000.
Sales in Livermore are down from 116 last July to 74 this July, a decrease of 36%.
