Today’s post will look at the Ventura County real estate market in March 2017. The number of homes sold in March was 321, which is a big increase from the 395 that were sold in February. Inventory remains at low levels and for the second straight month, the average sales price was below the average listing price throughout the county. Thanks to feedback from one of the readers of the last analysis, we realized that we were missing an important metric. Although it’s interesting to compare the listing prices to the sales price, what’s probably more telling is the year-over-year price difference. Starting with today’s post, we will now add that price difference at the top of the county row, which is a 5.2% increase from March of last year.

For purposes of this and future blog posts, Ventura County statistics are based off of the following ten cities in Ventura County: Camarillo, Fillmore, Moorpark, Ojai, Oxnard, Port Hueneme, Simi Valley, Santa Paula, Thousand Oaks, and Ventura. This data is pulled directly from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and may not contain information on properties that were sold off market. Number of homes sold does not include residential income, lots and lands, or commercial.

If you know anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in the near future, please feel free to share this post with them.
