Came across these infographics from the California Association of REALTORS website.

I like to look for market at a glance info to keep current with market trends. Also, I happen to like data.

I am not sure how “typical” this is in relation to Silicon Valley Real Estate (or that matter, us here in the real estate market of Evergreen, San Jose, Ca), but always good info to keep in the back of the mind.

While we did not sell any luxury homes (price points over $1M) last year, this does give me a strategy to consider, look for luxury homes for sale on hilltops and surprisingly, luxury clients are also renters.
