Golden State Real Estate Markets Stay Sizzling in JunE

Demand for homes in California showed no sign of cooling as summer officially began, with three Bay Area cities named among the nation’s five most booming real estate markets.sfskyline7115

In a new report, ranks the hottest U.S. real estate markets in June based on the number of online listing views compared with the number of online listings. The study also factors in the median number of days a property spent on the market in order to analyze buyer demand.

Golden State metro areas claimed eight spots on’s list of the 20 hottest markets in June, seven of them located in Northern California. San Francisco moved up one place to claim the No. 1 position from Denver, while Vallejo ranked as the nation’s second-hottest housing market. Santa Rosa was No. 4, followed by San Jose (No. 6), Santa Cruz (No. 10), Sacramento (No. 11), San Diego (No. 12), and Stockton (No. 16).

Although two California regions – Los Angeles and Ventura – dropped off the list of hottest housing markets from May, homes in the state remain in high demand due to limited supply conditions and a thriving economy. These factors have helped drive median list prices in some parts of the state to nearly four times the national average of $233,000.

Of’s 20 hottest markets, the San Jose metro area had the highest median list price through the first three weeks of June — $906,000. Santa Cruz was the country’s second most expensive market, at $793,000, followed by San Francisco at $765,000, Santa Rosa at $580,000, and San Diego at $579,000.

Homes in Northern California are selling at a much brisker clip than they are nationwide. The report says U.S. homes sold in an average of 66 days in June, unchanged from May and down 7 percent from one year ago.

San Francisco and San Jose tied for the nation’s fastest-moving housing markets, with properties selling in a median of 26 days. Most other Northern California markets on the list were also moving twice as fast the national rate; homes sold in 32 days in Santa Rosa, Vallejo, and Sacramento and 33 days in Stockton.

Overall, great customer service is about two things, knowledge and authenticity. The agents that succeed are able to treat each client’s purchase as vitally important. They are able to steer the client through any hiccups in the process and leave the client feeling that the whole process was as easy as possible.
