A new foreclosed listing in Altadena hit the market last week. It is an amazing estate on Altadena Drive sitting on a huge lot – 36,850 sq. ft. per assessor.

The home itself has seen many better days. It must have been really grand at one time. It features 5 bedrooms and 4 baths, huge windows, several fireplaces and lots of nooks and crannies.

As in a lot of mansions built in the early 1900s, there is a grand staircase leading to the upstairs living quarters, as well as a servant’s back entry.

The bathrooms are enormous and the rooms are spacious with extra high ceilings.

There’s a remnant of what used to be a tennis court, a pool with a cabana, a river rock bar-b-que. I can just see the parties that were hosted here.

Altadena real estate is still seeing an increase in home listings.  Inventory is increasing, prices are going down and sales will be decreasing in the next couple of months.  Take a look at the number of Altadena homes with accepted offers (sales pending) and you will see a significant decrease from 37 in June to 22 in October. 

Starting with October 2008, I will be able to include the Median Sales Price which will help us in tracking the real estate market a bit more effectively.

In the meantime, Altadena is still in a very strong buyer’s market.

Condos and townhomes in Altadena are still almost nowhere to be found, but for the persistent few who want to buy an Altadena condo there are a couple available for sale.

Altadena California Real Estate Market Update – August 2008

Altadena California Real Estate Market Update – August 2008

Altadena real estate market has shown a decreased number of available homes for sale from May 2008 to August 2008.  This decrease is due to the pick up of home sales in the summer months, although looking at the number of homes that went under contract in August, it’s clear that the summer rush is over.  The average price of an Altadena home has been declining steadily with August ending at $640,167.  Price per square foot of homes sold in Altadena has also decreased month after month to $345.

Altadena homes sold in August 2008 on average at 96.49% to their adjusted asking price.  I say adjusted because more than half of the Altadena homes sold in August had price reduction prior to getting buyer bids and finalizing the sale.

Atadena condos and townhomes are almost non-existent since Altadena mainly has single family homes. 

Single Family Residence May-08 Jun-08 Jul-08 Aug-08
