CVAR Monthly Market – July
C.A.R. Senior VP Leslie Appleton-Young says that stronger sales of higher-priced properties continue to propel the statewide median home price. For the July report:
New Favorite Room in House
The significant amount of time spent at home during the pandemic has changed preferences, and homeowners now favor quieter and more private areas in the home. See what a survey of more than 2,000 Americans says is the new favorite room in the home.
Supra Features Done Remotely

Upland Sues City Over Development
A group of Upland residents has sued the city, asking the court to vacate approval of a 65-unit housing development to be constructed in a flood control basin.
Sales Record – Completed transactions of existing homes jumped a record 24.7% in July to a seasonally adjusted rate of 5.86 million, according to Friday’s report from the National Association of REALTORS®. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg had forecast a jump to a 5.41 million rate. “The housing market is well past the recovery phase and is now booming with higher home sales compared to the pre-pandemic days,” said Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist. “With the sizable shift in remote work, current homeowners are looking for larger homes and this will lead to a secondary level of demand even into 2021.” (NAR)
Median Rises – The median sale price for luxury homes in the U.S. rose 1.2% year over year to $825,000 during the three months ending July 31. The rebound comes after a record decline in the spring, when luxury prices dropped 1.7% as the coronavirus pandemic forced the U.S. economy into a standstill. (Redfin)
