Calaveras County, CA — The Calaveras County Association of Realtors (CCAR) reports the number of homes sold in Calaveras County rose by 8.39 percent over last quarter.
CCAR also reports prices on homes sold in the county jumped by an average of 5.5 percent. Another positive number is a decrease in the average days a home is on the market, which decreased by 8.24 percent over last year.
CCAR reports the number of homes for sale dropped by over 17 percent, which they say may have played a role in stabilizing values and increased sales.
CCAR Association Manager Valerie Moon says, “This 3rd quarter report brings good news to sellers, buyers and the entire industry.” Moon says the numbers have been consistently improving and stabilizing. She says the area has “less foreclosure activity on the books, more short sales and there is more affordable housing available in Calaveras County.”
