Pending home sales are a forward looking indicator of home sales 30 to 45 days down the road. With an increase in the number of pending homes in South Livermore Neighborhoods, we can project higher closed contracts and potential price increases.

“Motivated by fast-rising rents and the anticipated increase in mortgage rates, consumers that are on strong financial footing are signing contracts to purchase a home sooner rather than later,” said Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist. “This solid buying is a testament to demand still being relatively high, as it is occurring during a time when inventory is still markedly low.”
