Home price drops are now defining our local markets in Silicon Valley.

Price drops are now appearing at every price point!

As this situation has progressed, we were seeing mostly homes at the higher end being effected. Now, we can see this trend of home price drops hitting home prices at levels even below average price.

What does this mean for real estate?

Each day that passes we see prices and market conditions moving toward favoring buyers. These home price drops look like they are just the beginning of a continuing trend for our market.

What does that mean for our markets?

More inventory will come.

Prices or at least how much they increase is going to drop.

This is already happening. From slowing increases, prices dropping year over year – we are seeing a fundamental pivot in the market.
