California Real Estate Market Past the Bottom?
DQNews -- "An estimated 37,295 new and resale houses and condos were sold statewide last month. That was up 32.7 percent from 28,111 in February, and up 3.0 percent from 36,215 in March 2009. The median price paid for a home last month was $255,000, up 2.4 percent from $249,000 in February, and up 14.3 percent from $223,000 in March a year ago. The year-over-year increase was the fifth in a row, following 27 months of year-over-year declines. The median peaked at $484,000 in early 2007 and hit a post-boom low of $221,000 last April."
MP: The five monthly increases in year-over-year median home prices in California starting last November, along with continued increases in year-over-year home sales, would suggest that a bottom could have been reached last year for the California real estate market.
