Irvine House vs Condo Numbers: August 2012

Posted: 22 Aug 2012 05:00 AM PDT

According to Altos Research, Irvine’s single-family housing market is similar to what it was the previous month. Altos gives Irvine’s single-family homes a Market Action Index of 21.61, which Altos defines as a buyer’s market. (Above 30 is defined as a seller’s market; below is defined as a buyer’s market.)  Altos also states that the average single-family home has been on the market for about 121 days as of August 10, 2012.

There are fewer houses and condos on the market this month than last month, as well as fewer sales. In addition, houses seem to be faring better than condos in Irvine’s housing market.
