What’s Happening in the Orange County Real Estate Market?
Orange County’s homebuying rebound continued in September with sales hitting a pace not seen since 2005. A study done by DQNews (a service that provides home sales and mortgage statistics for the U.S.) shows a market fueled by historically low interest rates, coronavirus-led urges for more space, and a limited inventory for house hunters to choose.
Some of the single-family-home data released for September 2020 is as follows:
- Median Sales Price: $875,000 (up 10.8% over 2019)
- Homes Sold: 2,417 (up 30.6% over 2019)
