The Hottest Area In Housing: Bay Area CA

The Hottest Area In Housing: Bay Area CA

The Bay Area

—chiefly San Francisco, San Jose and Vallejo—is on a hot streak, with no pointers to a slowdown this year, according to data newly released from realtor.com®. In January, homes in the San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward metropolitan area lasted a median 39 days on-market; in the San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa-Clara metro, a median 33 days; and in the Vallejo-Fairfield metro, a median 44 days.

“There is no doubt that housing in many parts of California is as hot as the Mojave in August,” says Javier Vivas, director of Economic Research at realtor.com. “Even with sky-high prices, homes in places like the Bay Area typically sell twice as quickly as homes in the rest of the country, thanks to a supercharged economy and a major dearth of available properties. Barring a major change in the state’s economic strength, we expect these housing market conditions to continue for the foreseeable future.”

How does the Bay Area compare to the rest of the U.S.? In January, days on market nationally registered at 89—an astounding 56 days, or almost two months, more than in the San Jose metro, the fastest of the month. Portland Hottest Hoods.
