Single family home values continue to excel, having posted two consecutive months of double-digit appreciation. The $1MM to $2.5MM range was particularly strong, with a median market time of just three weeks, and purchasers bidding an average of 12% over list prices. Condominium values posted a 7% decline, despite the number of closings increasing by 20%. Condominium values have been muted this year, due in large part to the competition from units in new developments.
The US economy has shown further signs of strength, posting an unemployment rate of 4.6%, a nine-year low. US service sector activity, which accounts for two-thirds of economic activity, reached a one-year high, making it more likely that the Fed will raise rates this month. Locally, unemployment rates in Marin, Sonoma and San Francisco remain under 4%.
