This week the median list price for a single family home in Pasadena, CA is $1,720,000 with the market action index hovering around 51. This is less than last month’s market action index of 52. Inventory has increased to 69.
The Federal Reserve decided to keep interest rates steady at their recent meeting. They indicated that they will closely watch for signs of improving inflation before considering any cuts. However, better-than-expected employment figures for January caused 10-year Treasury prices to drop, leading to an increase in bond and mortgage rates last week. This suggests that the expected rate cuts may not happen as quickly as anticipated. Despite this, weekly pending sales numbers reveal that consumers are making the most of the recent rate relief we experienced last month. As we head into the spring home buying season, we could see a rise in closed sales in the coming months.
