Is the East Bay real estate market cooling off?

  • Inventory increased among many East Bay communities, with notable gains in Dublin, El Sobrante and San Lorenzo.
  • Units sold decreased in most communities, while Albany, El Sobrante and Clayton saw a significant increase in July 2016.
  • Median sales prices grew in all areas of the Tri-Valley area and Delta.

Inventory throughout the East Bay has been climbing, pushing some area home prices down. This July, according to the August 2016 Real Estate Weather Report by the Bay East Association of Realtors, home sales prices in nearly 25 percent of East Bay communities were trending downward on an annual basis.
