This year has been off to a great start, with lots of activity in and around Concord. Most notably, progress has been made with regards to the Naval Weapons Station. Master developer Lennar will be implementing a city park and youth recreation complex at the site, in addition to retail space and single-family residencies. You can read more about the Specific Plan from the Concord City website.
In the real estate market, the last 16 months have been active as well. Last year we saw 56 Dana Estates homes sold, with a median sale price of $615,000. Homes are selling over list price, with the average home selling at +0.77% over list price.
Smaller homes are selling just as well as larger homes. Two- and three-bedroom homes are selling at +0.90% over list price, compared to four-bedroom homes at +0.55%.
In the Dana Estates neighborhood, the 2018 median sale price for 2-3 BR homes was $589,950 and the median sale price for 4 BR homes was $650,000.
As shown by the chart below, December had the highest number of homes sold in Dana Estates, though the average sale price remained relatively consistent year-round.
Homes sold quickly in 2018, with the median days on market (DOM) at 14; that means most homes are in contract just two weeks from the day they are listed.
This year shows a more impressive number of homes sold, with 21 sold in the first four months. The median sale price is down on all homes, but properties continue to sell at nearly 1% over list price. The DOM is down to a median eight (8) days.
As you have seen, property in Dana Estates continues to be in demand, and it remains a seller’s market as there is more competition to buy houses than to sell.
