Modesto Market Update - December Edition

Graphical chart analysisAs we close in on the holiday season, it’s time to take look inside November numbers and speculate how the year is gong to end for local markets.

Statewide, mortgage rates have declined from the recent peak by more than 50 basis points (bps) and continued to improve in the past few weeks. While housing demand remained below the historical norm, mortgage applications have been rising in the past three weeks, which is an encouraging sign to the market.

Most important, consumers continue to spend as we enter the holiday season, causing the  economy to take longer than previously anticipated to slow down. While the Fed could be done raising rates, it may not start cutting rates until the end of the first quarter when clear signs of economic weakening are seen.

Locally, the median price of a home sold in Modesto was $433k, with homes seeing an average of two offers and selling within 15.5 days.

As of December 4,  210 properties are available in Modesto, including 11 properties under $300k. On the upper end, 16 properties are listed at or above $1 million with the highest listing at $2,250,000.
