Santa Clara County real estate numbers more than DOUBLED the home inventory increase that has been reported nationally.

Home price increases have slowed as well.

We are still seeing homes selling for over asking, but not as robustly as before. This change feels like the beginning of a shift that is also happening when the market is supposed to be reaching its peak for sellers.

What is interesting is that the number of new listings in May for Santa Clara County was on par with the national number. So that indicates that this increase is mostly homes listed in previous months that are still on the market. With home inventory now staying on the market longer, that can spell more opportunities for buyers.
