If we take the real estate market in Walnut Creek and divide it in fourths; we can analyze which market segment has the most movement and of couse what market segment has the least. This graph shows that the third quartile seems to have decreasing inventory and the first quartile has increasing inventory.
Take the same data and change Walnut Creek real estate days on market to Walnut Creek avereage price by the same quartiles and the market shows that the changing in inventory does not effect the prices.
I do see that the two lower quartile markets show signs of improvement. It’s a great time to buy a home!
